Hair Crush : Keke Palmer & Jada Pinkett

I have noticed more women wearing shorter hair extensions; hair that falls just below the shoulders. I like this length especially for spring /summer.

I am obsessed with Keke Palmer's current hairstyle. I need and I want NOW!! I like the texture, length and fullness.

I also like Jada Pinkett's current hairstyle. I think this look can be achieved with any type of virgin body wave hair e.g. Brazilian, Malaysian, Peruvian etc.

Spring is almost here and I plan to put my Virgin Mongolian Kinky hair back in sometime in the coming months.
I haven't purchased new hair in 2013 which is so unlike me. I have enjoyed wearing my Virgin Filipino Hair. and it will be a tough act to follow. I think that every time you purchase new hair, it should be better than your last purchase since you learn a lot with each type of hair. I cannot wait for find the hair that would give my Virgin Filipino Hair a run for it's money :p

Have a wonderful week x

My Transitioning Story

I haven't posted in a long time because I have been so frustrated with the condition of my own hair.  I can honestly say now that I decided to transition for the wrong reasons. I saw others doing it,  I love the way natural hair looks and I wanted to be on #teamnatural. But I have decided transitioning is not for me and that is perfectly fine. I felt like a failure at first because I have heard fairy tale transitioning stories and I wanted that for myself but it did not happen.

 Almost a year into transitioning , I was so frustrated with trying to take care of two different textures. Transitioning is a very emotional process and it took a toll on me. One day I decided after a lot of tears, I was at my wits end and I decided to relax my hair thinking that would instantly solve my problem and boy was I wrong. My hair was breaking excessively especially at the ends and chunks of hair would come out each time I attempted to moisturize my hair or touch my hair.

Right now I have a strict hair regimen.  I also bought something I have always wanted; a heat cap. The advantage of a heat cap is that it helps infuse conditioners deeper into cuticles. I love wearing extensions but I love wearing extensions knowing that my own hair is in great condition. I am on my way back to having hair that I can be proud of like I once was. No matter how bad the condition of your own hair is, know that you can always restore health to your hair. It takes time and diligence but it is possible :)

Tyche Pro Conditioning Heat Cap. You can buy it on Amazon, eBay or here
I will provide details on my hair regimen & a review on the Tyche heat cap in a future post. It feels good to be back and I cannot wait to share my 2013 hair wishlist with you.

Stay tuned x
