First Time At The Salon In 7 Months

Its been almost 7 months since Ive been to the salon. I was on a spiritual journey and during that time going to the salon wasnt important.

I experienced matting this time around after I washed my locs. If not properly moisturized they can even break off at the root. Using a good moisturizing cream made specifically for locs will help with this, and if you know you are prone to breakage you can help by supplementing your nutrition.

While part of loc maintenance is the retwist, frequent twisting is not recommended as this tends to cause thinning and breakage. I recommend a retwist every 6-8 weeks, but because everyone’s hair is different…Do You! Make personal recommendations based on what will work best for you and your hair.

Its Either Black or White No Gray Area ♤

It’s a style I really yearn for at times – I just can’t get my head around wearing black and white all the time when I feel the need to WEAR ALL THE COLOURS AND PATTERNS. But these girls do black and white with aplomb, and I can only imagine how easy picking outfits from their wardrobes must be. I wish I could clone myself or have an alter ego who dresses so calm and has the easiest time coordinating outfits. I’d love to know what’s like to be the girl who’s not forever wondering where her bright orange booties are because it would go perfectly with my olive green joggers and orange top.

So this style may not be something I’ll ever embrace myself regularly, but it doesn’t mean I can’t take elements and incorporate it into my style every now and then.

Earth Tones Are Always Fall Fashion WINNERS

When investing in classic pieces, I always think earthtone colors are the way to go!  These items can all be mixed and matched to make the perfect fall look for running errands around town or a date night out. All of these items I already own (and love!)

In Vegas we only get 2 seasons so here’s a colder weather lookbook. Its not even actually cold its been in low 70s high 60s which isnt even cold at all.

TOPS

I went with two busy tops and a simple bodysuit option. It’s amazing how many outfits you can get out of these tops if you keep them in the right color palette. For the busy tops, I went for a earthy tone splash.

BOTTOMS

The key to this part is keeping it basic. One pair of dark skinny jeans and some wine colored jeggings. It’s easily possible to create 45 outfits with these 2 bottoms!

SHOES

It can be easy to go shoe crazy once fall comes around but, the truth is, you really only need a few pairs if you choose the right ones. I went with one thigh high pair of boots with laces, a pair of suede black thigh high that can be dressed up or down, and a more bold red heel. With all of these shoes being completely different but still neutral colored, they made similar outfits look completely different.

See How I Styled My Dirty Locs

Most people who wear wear locs like the fresh look of a retwist, but if done too often it can start to create breakage and thinning at the root. Look around for new, attractive, hairstyles that you can tryout to stay in love with your hair in between retwists—it’s the perfect time to experiment with your look. 

I havent been to the salon since May , but I wash my locs every 6/8 weeks at home. Ive just been a little lazy 😯😯😯

 
No matter what you heard, cleansing is a part of any healthy hair care routine.

Fall Boot Collection

Boots are one of my favorite parts of any fall/winter outfit and they come in so many shapes and colors, they can totally elevate an basic outfit.

I can’t wait to style so many outfits with these boots throughout the fall season. Let me know which pair was your favorite in the comments and have a great Sunday!

A Locs and Headwrap Style

I choose to wear this headwrap to make a bold statement, it took my look from blah to bomb

This Loc and headwrap tutorial was very quick and easy. It took a max of 4 minutes to complete this look.

Many women choose to wear head wraps because they’re one of the most practical, versatile, and functional accessories of all time. A woman might reach for a head wrap:

♡ dealing with hair loss due to health challenges such as alopecia, cancer, and chemotherapy.
♡ protecting hair from harsh weather and climates
♡keeping hair out the face during a workout, gardening, chores, traveling, etc.
♡ disguising a bad hair dayto signify mourningsaving a blowout or other new hairdo
♡ keeping a protective style fresh protecting her hair while sleeping

An Afrocentric Style For Medium Length Locs

Peace. As I adapt to the many stages of my locs , I knew I was bound to make a few changes in my maintenance routine. I’ve been on my loc journey for three years and I’ve made a LOT of changes here and there. Im caring for it more now than ever before and I LOVE the untwisted look.

Okay, I did my first ever real braid and it was on camera. The whole process and the results of that style are below. To maintain this look I pull eveything into a ponytail while the braid is still in and cover my locs with a scarf.
