Super Lustrous Braid Out Tutorial

Came across this video this morning while searching for styles to wear to a party Saturday night. Her braid out looks awesome!

Easy to Manage Styles

One thing about having natural hair while pregnant is that the last thing you ever feel like doing is your hair. Between the morning sickness and fatigue, sleep takes a priority over your appearance any day. Lately I've been rocking a puff because I don't want to be bothered with my hair but I know that it is in dire need of some TLC which I plan to do this week.

With summer humidity in full effect, I thought I would share some easy-to-manage styles for everyone.

Summer Style Tutorial: Bantu Knots

I was talking to a coworker this morning about bantu knots and she reminded me of a video from one my favorite vloggers. Check out the different ways SimplYounique styles her knots in cute summer-ready styles.

Product Review: Darcy's Botanicals Leave-In Conditioner

Summer is here and in full force and my hair is like "Pause". When the season changes, we need to adjust our hair regimens to accommodate the weather. In the winter I tend to go with heavy creamy products like my beloved whipped pudding by Oyin Handmade. In the summer months when the humidity is off the charts, I prefer to go with leave-in conditioners like those from Darcy's Botanicals.

Lately Darcy's Botanicals Juicy Peach Leave-In conditioner has been a lifesaver! My curls are moist, juicy and full of shine without feeling weighed down. My hair smells great; just like juicy Georgia peaches straight out of Fort Valley (whatchall know about Fort Valley?!). I am on my 3rd bottle of this stuff can't get enough of it. It's perfect for a wash and go style and light enough for daily usage.

I highly recommend this line if you are looking for a leave-in or daily styling product. Go check the out!

Is this thing on?

*dusts off the mic*

I know, the dead have risen but I assure you it hasn't been without reason. Life kinda got in the way of my hobbies and well, you know what happens when life calls...

Anyway, things are finally starting to settle down for me (knocks on wood) so I should be back later this week or early next week with some new posts and product reviews.

Where's Natural and Fab?

Hi lovelies! I'm sure you're wondering, where has this chick been!? Well, I've been taking a much needed break for the past month. I could talk about natural hair all day long but instead I decided to take a self-imposed vacation from everything.


Don't fret; I will be back soon with more updates about my hair and natural hair in general. The World Natural Hair Show will be in Atlanta April 25-27, maybe I will see you at one of the events ;)

Giveaway time! Time for my first giveaway of 2014. I did a review in the early part of 2013 of As I Am products. I have to admit that all of them had pros and cons but I did like the Coconut CoWash. This pudding like mixture is great for cowashing while adding protein to your strands.

I am giving away one (1) 16oz. jar to one lucky winner. To enter, leave me a comment with your name and I will enter it into the random drawing. This giveaway closes on March 2 so act fast! Good luck!
