“If you haven’t seen or heard about it yet by the end of this summer you definitely will. I found out about Havana Twist last year when a picture (top left) surfaced on tumblr. I always thought I needed to use the finger comber hair to achieve the look but then I saw many girls using Marley Hair or something similar. Eventually I gave up on tumblr and I wasn’t on Instagram yet so to me the buzz died. Fast forward to my iphone upgrade I was reintroduced to those darn twist! There are some very talented people out there who have taken the Havana Twist to new heights and I am in love. So in love that on Saturday my friend will be doing them for me! Excited much? Heck yeah!┬á”

This is an awesome and super easy protective style. I’ve actually been wearing them on myself for a few weeks now. They take no time to install and are low maintenance which is great for the summer.

Check out the ones that I’ve done on myself.

I’m going to make a video showing how to do these as well so be on the look out for that

Where in the world is Knotty Girl?

12 Jun

I bet you can’t find us. No really …

I always talked about this happening but I never thought it would happen to us (Darshanay and I). We got sick of natural hair!!

Okay, not natural hair in general but talking about it. It seems that throughout the winter months the natural hair events and scenes had gotten really over saturated, at least in our area. Not saying that we don’t love to go to these events and seeing all the other beautiful naturals. Everything just started to lack creativity or was just something done to make money. Needless to say we just needed a little break. However we’re back and are going to try and stay as Knotty as possible. ­čśë

Healthy Habits for Healthy Hair

11 Dec

I just wanted to go over some healthy habits that are sure to help your hair FLOURISH. If we don’t know by now being healthy starts from the inside. You can’t only take care of your outside. What is inside counts the most.

Black+Woman+drinking+water

Drink Water- Yes drink plenty of water. I want you to drink so much water you think you are turning into a fish. lol but really our body is composed┬áprimarily of water and we know water is natural hair’s number one moisturizer.

track-420x280

Exercise- Yes ladies we gotta do it. We can’t expect this great head of hair when our body isn’t great and no I don’t mean be an olympic class athlete, just some moderate exercising will do. Exercising is great for out overall health but it will also improve the quality, texture and growth of the hair. Regular exercise gets the blood flowing throughout the body, including the scalp, which in return will help your hair reach its fullest potential Continue reading

How to find the right hair product

18 Nov

Having trouble finding the perfect product for your hair? Here are a couple tips to keep in mind next time you shop the aisle!!!

Study your hair– Take the time to evaluate your hair. Notice the texture, thickness and porosity. Someone who has dry hair, for example, will need something different from someone who has oily or frizzy hair. Analyze your hair to determine which products will work best for you. Not all hair products are created equal!!

Pay attention to ingredients– The right ingredients are essential for healthy hair. Usually the first 3-5 ingredients listed are the main elements in the product. If you have found that in the past your hair has rejected those ingredients. Stay away from those ingredients and find hair care products that work for your specific hair needs. Continue reading

Out with the old…..

8 Nov

Just because you have natural hair doesn’t mean you can’t freshen up your look. The same twist outs and wash n go’s can get boring after a while. Here are a few ways you can switch up your look with your natural hair.

Cut. Yeah I said it. Every one with natural hair is not focused on hair length nor did they go natural to see how long their hair would grow. They are simply tired of relaxing their hair.

  • TWA-Try a funky tapered TWA like I did.

ME!
