Protective Style | Marley Twists

Every so often, I like to take breaks as far as styling my hair goes. Also, my schedule is getting more hectic and I needed a style that would allow me 2-3 weeks "off" from styling my hair. My sis Alex's protective style challenge couldn't have come at a better time. (To read about the challenge and/or to participate, please click HERE.) Alex (of had recently installed Marley Twists in her own hair, and I LOVED them. I was going to wait for her to take hers out to try it myself (Lol) but she wanted to practice, sooo... I let her! And she did a GREAT job, I LOVE them! With the exception of my urban twists from the Damn Salon a few months ago, I hadn't worn extensions in my natural hair since going natural in 2008. I really like the Marley Twists b/c they are chunkier and will be super easy to take out. It only took approximately 2 hours to install.

REVIEW| Hekalu Naturals

I was given the great opportunity to review some all-natural haircare products by a local entrepreneur recently, and I'm so excited to share with you all! The company name is Hekalu Naturals and the owner is SaMonna. When I received her email asking that I try and share these products, I was more than happy to do so. I LOVE LOVE LOVE homemade products AND I love QUALITY. The products I have been given to try were of great quality and I can't wait to make my first purchase soon.
