Growing out Boys Hair... Easy Low Maintenance

So I wanted to give you guys a little update on my lil cousin's Errk hair, its still going strong, and he and i keep up our part of the bargain, but since i'm lazy i gave him my go to style well a variation of it, i gave him mini twist.....

This style is actually three weeks old, and i'm slowly going over and retwisting some, to give it a "fresh" look

His ultimate goal is a braided mohawk so we'll see and its about 3 inches long.

So far so good, it has been a good experience growing out his hair from scratch, and virtually pain free

stay tuned for more updates on Errks' Hair Saga
and always this style is good for both boys and girls, and no mater the length

and a sneak of tye's similar style that he's been rocking for 3 weeks too

Guick and Easy ponytail style for natural Hair

So here's a a quick mini post and a simple hairstyle that i think is a classic, ponytails and barrettes, what's not to love, it has such a big variety you can do just about anything.

the front is ponytail is encased by two braids into a ponytail.

The ponytails at the crown are in a triangle type design

and the back is squared ponies

For this style I used
cantu leave in conditioner
and my oil mix, with water.

I loved how her 4c hair helped the twist, and her twist out Was LOVELY

Diy Carnival Games... Phineas and Ferb Rock Star Carnival

So Tye's 5th Birthday is coming up, and we're having a 
Phineas and Ferb Rock Star Carnival

I don't know why i Picked Such a Mishmash-ed theme, I knew i was going to have to buy/make everything
and i probably should've started awhile ago, but my first DIY is the Bean Bag can Toss Game


here's on of my inspiration, although it looks like they used pringle type cans 

I've used some seal aluminum cans i got from good time attractions for 1.75 each (but in hindsight I totally could've gotten some cans from a dollar store, but who wants busted cans with food spilling out?

and wrapped them in fun  carnivally paper to try and match the theme

Stay tuned for more

Phineas and Ferb Rock Star's Carnival 
themed post the closer we get to D day In  December

Braided and Twist Style for Tweens and Teens

So i went to visit some family and when ever i'm around, everyone tries to gfet in a quickie, while i'm there (getting their hair done) and my Chicken was no exception... Its can be really hard to Find a style for a tween or teen that's not too babyish or to mature of a style, and then to have it be quick and low maintenance is near impossible

We started off with hair that was washed and put into some chunk braids, she did this all by herself :o) (she's going to kill me for this picture, they have to learn someday to care for their naturally curly hair at some point right?

I started by parting the hair in half from ear to ear, and then splitting the back in half

and the top into random partings and sectioning it off with metal free elastic ponytail holders
and started to braid each chunk into smaller braids

although she loves the fro look her mom wanted something that would lost longer since i wasn't around

So She got Twist in the back

All done

for this style i used just for me detangler
Africans best hair grease
organic root stimulater loc and twist gel
various rubberbands for sectioning
and brush and comb

total styling time and hour and a half, including the twisting

and here's a flashback of my chicken

still rocking the fro and braids
