For the last few months I bet you’ve noticed that my hair as been safely tucked away in a variety of buns, and you’re probably seen me where this a few times…


I love the afro puff drawstring hairpiece, because I can wear my hair safely in a bun and still rock a ‘fro that looks just like my hair. What’s better–I don’t have to contend with wearing hot-ass wigs that cover my whole head.

It gets really rewarding when you can see the progress of your patience, when all the good stuff you do becomes obvious. And while I am taking vitamins and have my product favorites, I have to admit that the single most important thing I’ve done is to drastically reduce mechanical manipulation and protect my ends so they don’t get dry, crispy and broken.

Here’s a list of the products I mention:


Tres Beauty 3

Shea Moisture Jamaican Castor Oil Strengthening Shampoo

Camille Rose Naturals Clean Rinse Shampoo


Bumble & Bumble Invisible Primer

Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Lengthening Hair and Scalp Elixir
