Pre- Braided Braids?

Hello All My Darling Divas!
 Welcome back to the blog! Today we are going to discuss my latest crochet braids installment! Yes these are crochet braids, and YES I changed my hair AGAIN! (lol) I am forever changing my hair up, and when I saw these braids my last black and blue style had to go! If you want info on that hairstyle though feel free to click here for the deets!  But today its all about the purple! My latest crochet braids are actually crochet Senegalese pre-braided twist! What will the hair gods think of next! I discovered crochet pre- twisted and pre-braided styles a couple of months ago, but I’m just now getting around to trying them out. And let me tell you ladies I am H O O K E D! You get the same style, look, and feel of braids with the process time pretty much cut in half! Braids like this usually mean sitting on your butt for a good 5+ hours, but I only sat in a chair for 2hrs and boom, braids done! Braids in under 5 hours? I will take that any day! Of course when it came to color choice I had to grab something bold and funky, and this deep purple was just perfect for me! I haven’t actually had purple hair yet, so this was my way of trying out a color that I haven’t yet. I will definitely be revisiting purple hair again.

The brand of hair that I used was Janet and this is hair is in the style Noir Tantalizing Twist Braid in the color purple. This is what the pack looks like for reference if you would like to use this exact brand and color.

This is how the hair looks inside, and outside the pack! The hair is about medium length which is fine for me, but if you want longer braids I would suggest finding another brand. I brought 10 packs of hair to be safe but only ended up using 5. My hair was purchased at Hair World located in Bear, Delaware. You can also find this hair online by clicking here and here. Always be sure to check your local beauty supply store. You never know what you will find! 

Caring for this hairstyle is simple. It’s pretty much how I care for my hair when I have braids installed, but since this is a crochet style, I don’t need as maintenance or product. Pictured are the three main products that I’ve been using in my hair so far. I use the Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey to moisturize my scalp, the Cantu Edge control to slick down my edges and, the Lusters Pink Sheen Spray to add a bit of shine and moisture to my braids. If it wasn’t for curlbox  I wouldn’t have been introduced to two of the three products pictured below, so shout out to them!

Pics!
So ladies I hope you have enjoyed today’s blogpost! I have a feeling that these pre- braided crochet braids are going to be an obsession of mine for a while, so don’t be surprised if you see another batch sometime later! If you give this look a try, or have already, share your pics in the comment section below or tag me in your pics on social media! They are all linked above, and I would love to be connected with you! My addiction to crochet braids is REAL, and they just keep coming out with more hair for me to try! And I will not stop until I try them all! (lol) This blog post concludes the post for this week ladies! I will see you all next week with two new blog post’s! so until then love ya lots like tator tots, and have a fabulous weekend!

Stop! Before you Protective Style!

Hello All My Darling Divas!
Welcome back to the blog! I first want to say I’m sorry for posting so late! I have been trying to get this blogpost up all day, but Youtube was taking FOREVER to upload my video! So excuse this post for being so late, but  I was determined to post today! (lol) Today were going to be talking about how to prep your hair for protective styling. It is starting to get warm, and I know that us ladies like to put our hair up to protect it from the summer rays. I recently got my hair put in Crochet Braids, and I made sure to prep my hair properly before I got this style installed. Click here to check out the blogpost on all the info on my hair! I definitely have learned my lesson by not prepping my hair before I protective style, and not taking care of my hair WHILE it’s in its protective style, so this video is to help you not make the same mistakes that I did! So enjoy the video, and meet below for more details!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope that it was really informative and helps you out! If you have any other ideas or tips, feel free to leave them below in the comment section below!

Hairstyle Battle Me VS Finger Coils

Hello All My Darling Divas!,
Welcome back to the blog! It’s been all about hair this week and I couldn’t be more excited! So earlier this week I came to you with my first CurlBox Unboxing! If you want to check it out click here! February’s curlbox came with alot of wonderful products this month, and I had to of course figure out a way to incorporate the products in the box. I decided what better way to use the products then to do a Hairstyle Battle video! Now I have always wanted to try finger coils, and now that I had some amazing products to try I figured now was the perfect time to test it out! So enjoy the video, and meet me below to see who won: Me or the Finger Coils!

So I think it’s pretty safe to say that this hairstyle battle was a TIE! I won because the style did look great and stayed in place. The Hairstyle also won because I ended up not liking how it looked on me. You guys be the judge. Who do you think won? Me or the hairstyle? Leave your comments below! Now lets get into more info and of course pictures!



The two videos that help me achieve my finger coils feel free to use both of the  full out tutorials to show you how to achieve finger coils.
Charyjays Tutorial on Finger Coils- Chile I loveeee a Charyjay Tutorial! Always very informative and simple to follow. I chose her because we have a similar texture, and she showed two different methods of products to use to achieve this style.
Jouelzy’s Tutorial on Finger Coils- Jouelzy is my go to guru for 4C Hair! What attracted me to her tutorial was because we have similar length and texture.

 For this video I used 4 out of the 6 products that came with my CurlBox. For a more detailed description of the products featured, click here for my Curlbox Unboxing Video.

Ok So I started off with super dry hair that was tangled and lacked moisture. I used the Cantu Shea Butter Coil Calm Detangler. It left my hair feeling super soft and manageable. I will definitely be using this again! 

Then after that it was time to condition and I decided to grab the Carol’s Daughter Mirabelle Plum Conditioner. It put shape back into my curls, and kept my hair feeling and smelling great! 
After that I let it dry using the Dove Quench Absolute Cream Serum as a leave in. I showed how soft my hair was in the video. I showed you that I used the  Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste and it really held the finger coils! I loved the curl control paste! I was really pleased that it held my curls 
So since I didn’t really dig the finger coils, so I decided to take them out and rock a finger coil out and I loved it! The Control Paste really defined my curls and I have been rocking this super defined coil out for the past 3 days!
So ladies that’s all! Maybe I will revisit finger coils once my hair gets longer! If you try it out let me know! All my links to my social media are linked above. I hope you have enjoyed the second video in the Hairstyle Battle Series! I am having sooo much fun testing out new hairstyles, and I wonder what I will come up with next. If you want to see me try out any hairstyle just comment below and let me know! So until next week ladies, love ya lots like tator tots!
