Well, well, well, it's time to pull another natural hair tale out of the archives. Two years ago, a beautiful young diva named Dominique-Alexis submitted her natural hair tale to Protecting Your Crown & Glory. Dominique-Alexis is the owner of a fabulous website called Natural-Hair-Care-Info.com. Her site and its accompanying Facebook page are dedicated to educating teens and adults about the beauty of natural hair. So now, without further ado, here is Dominque-Alexis' natural hair tale, as told to PYCAG:
As mentioned in my "NYX & Wet n' Wild Haul," I recently went on a makeup shopping spree in order to replace my expired makeup and update my collection. MAC was one of the stores on the list, and I decided to try a few new things along with the usual suspects...
In January, my son's curls were long and luscious. I shared how after finally learning how to cornrow, I was able to fashion his hair into braided styles, with simple cornrows and the faux hawk being among my favorite looks. Well, a lot has changed since then...
The celebrity locks I'm currently admiring: Kelis. Her milkshake may bring all the boys to the yard, and it's been said that she can be a bit bossy, but one thing is certain: her style is off the chain! I can't believe that in all the years I've been blogging, I have yet to feature this sassy songstress! I think it's pretty safe to say that Kelis is all natural, given the texture of her hair. Those of us who are natural understand and appreciate the versatility natural hair affords, and this diva definitely knows how to switch things up. Her style, cuts and colors range from totally tame, to completely insane, but I'll let you be the judge about which is which.
I recently shared the "Peachy Keen" look I crafted using colors from the All I've Ever Wanted Box I purchased from NYX. Well, today I'd like to share another look I created using colors from the palette, one I've dubbed "Tantalizing Teal."
Well, well, well. I'm now one year and six months into my waist length journey, and although I've come a long way, I still got a ways to go! Luckily, my hair is in pretty good condition, and although I've said it before, I'll say it again: healthy hair is more important than long hair. Thus, I believe that as long as I continue to follow a healthy hair regimen, my goals will eventually be achieved. So now, without further ado, here is my official length update for 2013:
As you know, I recently purchased a new makeup palette by NYX called the All I've Ever Wanted Box, and let me tell you, it is all I've ever wanted! With a variety of eyeshadow shades, blushers, lippies and face powders, the options are limitless! Today I'd like to share a look I created using bright orange, tangerine and gold colors from the palette, one I've dubbed "Peachy Keen."
