  • Happy Nappy Me

    So, I decided to start an official blog. Here I will highlight the ups and downs or my naptural journey. I did my BC on May 21, 2011 after transitioning for 3 months, and I recently just hit the 1 month mark post BC I am totally in love with my natural hair, even with this nappy little twa I have. I love learning what my hair likes and how to pamper it.

    My transition was actually an accident. I had considered it in the past, but I had absolutely no plans of going natural. But after wearing a wig for those 3 months, I realized I had alot of new growth and I didn't really want to go back to a relaxer. Soooo, the same weekend I took the wig out I BCd and here I am.

    I hope anyone who follows this blog will find it interesting, entertaining, and helpful. I really dont think I have that much to talk about but I'll share whatever is on my mind here. So, welcome and thanks for joining me on this ride

        Okay, so as a previous thread if mine mentioned, my first attempt as finger coils was an epic fail. I shampooed and conditioned with HEHH, added my cantu Shea leave in, and sealed with olive oil. I then attempted to coil with Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie. Needless to say it did bit work.

        A few days later I tried again with the same routine except I quick coiled with Eco styler gel and a brush. Here they are a little bit better, but not quite there yet. I still couldn't get a coil out with them




        I tried yet again with the Eco styler, this time actually finger coiling

          ...Last night the Lord was truly with me lol. After having picked up my coconut oil from whole foods, I came home and shampooed and conditioned with HEHH, did my ACV rinse, cowashed again, then did a olive oil and honey deep condish. I added my leave in and sealed with the coconut oil. My hair felt AMAZING! I then coiled with eco styler aaannndd...my coils kicked butt and my coil out is fierce!





          I think I've discovered some staples. Yaay!

                      I keep wanting to try coiling and every time I do the first is a fail...looking at yours I think I'll try again.

                        Yes girl, just keep trying. I had many fails as you can see before I got it to where I wasn't ashamed to wear it outside. I found that my hair coils better semi dry, I have to do them a little smaller, and use more gel. Good luck!
