So this year my focus is retaining length and also developing a simple routine for my hair. Check it out!
Saturday-Prior to washing I apply HE Hello Hydration Conditioner. I section my in four big parts, I then clip each part and apply the conditioner. I detangle my hair in each section twist and clip.
I then go ahead and co wash in sections, sometimes with shampoo if needed and then apply more conditioner before I rinse. After all sections are cleaned and rinsed I keep the four sections to apply my leave-in and detangler Kinky Curly Knot Today. (Swears by this stuff). So, after I detangle my hair which is already pretty much detangled from earlier I add a Argan Oil, followed up by Curls Milkshake for moisture. I also like to add some whipped Shea butter to the ends.
I then section my section for small twisting, this stretches my hair and gives it great definition for the next day. I use Carol’s Daughter Loc Butter and a little whipped Shea Butter for the end and proceed to twist.
My hair is light and fluffy and not heavy at all. With great definition.
Day 2: I take my twists apart and use a pick to fluff my roots, never picking through the ends.
Day 2 Night time routine. I part my hair in 4 sections and I braid my hair this makes the hair stretch even more! I use two big braids for the back sections 3 on the sides and 3 in the top.
Each day I repeat these steps until wash day, I may add some extra Curls Milkshake or Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Style Milk just and whipped shea butter to the ends.
I’m sticking to this routine to gain some length. I won’t be clipping my ends until December!
Okay Curlycakes! So I’m here to dish on how much I love Design Essentials Curl Creams! They have an entire line dedicated to natural hair. The shampoo and conditioner just didn’t do it for me….but their creams are a total winner! The daily moisturizer was okay, sometimes I use it and sometimes I don’t. But any who, I love those darn curl creams. They have two types, The Curl stretching Cream and the Curl Define Gel. And let me tell you…The NAmes Don’t Lie! The products performed their duties, well worth the price! The products kept my hair soft, moist, non-greasy, manageable and I didn’t have to reapply every night. My hair type is 4a/4b very dense and loves moisture. It can’t get enough of the stuff! So I have to tell you ladies…I swear by this stuff. The next test will be to see how it holds up in the winter, I started using the product in the fall and it worked wonders! Keep reading to see how I use my Design Essentials Curly Creams!
I used to hate getting my relaxed hair trimmed because it always felt like my hair was never growing and the little bit that did grow always got chopped off! So as a natural I entered with the mindset, “Well it’s Natural so I don’t have to trim it right”? Wrong! Trimming is a must, but you shouldn’t need to do it any more than every 12 weeks. This will ensure healthy ends, you will retain length and your twist out and braid outs will be so juicy and full! I lost about 2 inches of hair due to breakage and dry ends! Don’t be like me! Trim it! I used MissKriss New’s Tutorial to teach me how to Trim my hair. Check out her YouTube page. She’s awesome!! I learn a lot from her and Natural Chica ;) So here are the results of my first trim! Continue reading “Rocakes Springtime Trim!”

On Saturdays, I begin my hair week. Just because it’s the only day I have to really spend quality time with my hair. This is my hair regime, so that means it works for me :) I believe my hair type is a 4 something so if you think you have the same hair type as I do, feel free to use any of these methods!
