“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!¬†”

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

New Years Resolutions Or Wuddeva…

29 Dec

20121227-030713.jpg

New Year, New You! I love New years Resolutions, It’s the perfect time to reflect on the year and paint a picture of what you really want out of life. Many people hate doing New Years Resolutions because they feel they will never follow through with their resolutions.The way I see it is that there will always be things in life that we can improve or do differently. It’s okay to start over, It’s okay to have goals that seem unrealistic, It’s to admit your flaws, and it’s okay to be yourself! To quote Hannah Montana “Nobody’s perfect I gotta work it Again and again ‘Til I get it right”(yeah I went there) the point is just improve yourself!! Grab a journal and start thinking about some of the changes you may want to make in 2013!

Here is a list of funny resolutions that I hope to improve and accomplish in 2013:

  • Stay on track with my weight loss goal. I have come too far to give up now.
  • Overcome product junk-ism.
  • Blog more frequent. Knotty Girls uphold me to this one!!!
  • Go to Disney World
  • Workout at least five times a week
  • Keep working hard in school Continue reading

A Closer Look: 2nd Big Chop

26 Nov

Just wanted to come and give a closer look on my big chop. Please tell me what you think=)

Don’t Stop, Big Chop: Courtney

26 Nov

Why did you bigchop?

I big chopped for numerous reasons, If you go back to my 2 year natural anniversary you can read why here. Another reason that I didn’t talk about is because I wanted to do something different to my hair. I was always trying new things with my hair. I’ve had long hair, short hair, red hair and orange hair ( sounds like a Dr. Seuss book lol) and the only thing that was left was natural hair. When my hair was straight I also loved to wear rod sets and pin curls and figured why not go for a more permanent look.

When did you big chop? 

The first time I big chopped was on August 6, 2010 and the second time was October 23rd,2010. 

What made you big chop again? 

I big chopped for the 2nd time because I wanted to see my hair in a new style. When I big chopped for the first time it was just to get the relaxer out of my hair but for the 2nd time I wanted to play around with some new styles since I know how to take care of my natural hair and know what it needs to flourish. I also had suffered from some heat damage. It wasn’t noticeable but I knew it was there and that bothered me.

How did you feel? What was your reaction?

I felt great. I love my big chop way more the 2nd time around since it was in a style.

What are you doing to take care of your hair?

I co-wash my hair once a week with Tresemme Naturals moisturizing conditioner. Then I apply JBCO to my hair and seal with Giovonni’s weightless moisture leave in. I only wash my hair with shampoo once a month.

Do your regret your decision?

Not at all. I know it is hair and will grow all back.

What words of encouragement would you give someone contemplating the big chop? 

Just do it. You will never know how you look with something until you try it.

 Introduce yourself ! 
Hello, I am Tabitha Robinson.
How long have you been natural?
I have been natural for about two years.
Did you transition or big chop?
I transition for 7 months and then I did a big chop.
Whats is your regimen? 
I don’t have a¬†daily regimen. I basically just know that every two weeks my hair needs to be washed.¬†However, I do deep condition everytime I wash and I mostly mix and match products, just so that I can see the results.
Did going natural change your personal style?
Being natural hasn’t really changed my personal style. It actually help me bring out the person that I wanted to be for so long. Going natural actually set me free.
If your hair could talk what would it say?
That’s a good question. My hair would probably say I am in dire need of styling!!! Only because I take care of my hair but I am not the best styler.
Do you consider yourself a Knotty Girl? and why?
 Of Course I do. My hair tells it all.
What do you love most about your good head?(Hair Everyone Adores & Desires)
 I love that my hair is very versatile. I can literally wear it anyway I want too.
