I’m going to try this whole natural hair blogging thing since I get questions frequently. I am growing out my taper from me recutting my hair for the 2nd time like this post big chop (will be one year in two weeks) my hair cut and color were done by my hair stylist back home in Memphis. I do not know my “hair type” but it is coily but not too tight. My current staples are Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter, Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque, Tresemme Naturals Conditioner, As I Am Coconut CoWash, and various oils [coconut, tea tree, almond, and jojoba]
How I styled the hair in each picture is listed below:
 Quick Bantu knot out. Two stranded Bantu knots. Four going forward towards my face, the remainder towards the sides and back. Finger coiled the sides. Let dry, took down while still damp, [sprayed with heat protectant] used diffuser to dry it, rubbed oil on hands and separated. Fluffed with a pick.
 Flat iron itch. Washed and deep conditioned hair prior. [tresemme heat protectant sprayed on hair] Used blow dryer and modified denman brush to blow dry it. [used small amount Roots of Nature Mango Almond Thermal Smoothing Serum] Took my Remington Pearl flat iron on 350 degrees and did the comb chase method. I went over small sections twice. Once to straighten and another to style it. I did not flat iron my sides. Instead I took wrap lotion and smoothed them down then tied it with a scarf.
 My favorite. Here I did an all over two stranded twist out with the twists all falling towards my face. I finger coiled the sides. I left my twists in for about 3 days. Used oil and slightly separated each twist. Lasted me a whole week.
 Texture. Here is my actual texture. It is my go-to wash and go style. The only thing I did here was use Eco Styler gel to smooth down my sides.
I really hope this was helpful to someone. Maybe I’ll keep doing these if I get enough support.
