Baking Soda/ACV Rinse and Locs Knots

Earlier this week, my hair was feeling dry, dusty, and dirty! I had to do something about it. I knew I had to wash and retwist, but I was looking to try a clarifying wash on my hair for the first time. Screen shot 2013-04-21 at 5.56.25 PM

I researched and found a recipe for an Baking soda & ACV rinse. I followed the step-by-step instructions.

Watch the process here:

The result was a squeaky-clean scalp and  refreshed locks. I followed up the rinse with a retwist and some loc knots.

I noticed that my hair is always in curly styles so I never see how long  my hair is. A friend took a length check picture for me and I was amazed by how much it’s grown!

The loc knot curls are very similar to the pipe cleaner curl, but a little less work to “install”.

 See the video:

The curls held up, even though I only used water and no setting lotion. I love it!


Looking for NATURAL HAIR Info?


By now, you all know I love fashion, good food, and adventures. You should also know that I love natural hair! I have been natural for almost three years and I’ve loved every minute of it. Maybe it’s because it’s been a while since my Big Chop, but I don’t talk about my hair as much anymore. My hair used to be all I talked about!

I don’t want you all to miss out on all the lessons that I learned while I was transitioning and first growing out my hair, so I am going to dig deep into the recesses of the blogosphere and find some of my older stuff to share with you, if you are interested in natural hair.

In the drop-down menus, you should see a “Natural Hair” tab that should tell you just about anything you want to know about natural hair from transitioning styles to hair maintenance. You can also find popular natural bloggers and vloggers under the “Afroinspiration” tab.

The NATUAL HAIR section will be updated periodically.
