So for those of you who have been reading, you have probably been wondering why there is a post on Long Freetress Deep Twist Crochet Braids maintenance but not one that reviews and explains the experience in one blog post?!
So I have received a lot of questions on the process of Crochet Braids washing. My crochet braids washing routine applies to almost any kind of hair I have used including Freetress Bulk Bohemian Braid, Freetress Gogo Curl, Freetress Deep Twist and Freetress Presto Curl.
I wanted to have a post addressing this question specifically because I have received a lot of emails about the best hair to wear during vacation (most of the time to the tropics and on cruises and whatnot).
Hey guys! It has been awhile since I have done a product review and it has also been awhile since I have had my hair out and about!
It's fall yall (and also like all of my family members birthdays right before xmas #brokephibroke). In any case we are getting into holiday shopping season and I have some cool gift items planned, so stay tuned!
So with the end of the synchronized swimming season near and a Vegas 40th birthday blowout with one of my friends - I was faced with the always tough decision...what am I going to do with my hair?!
Since I started doing crochet braids almost four years ago, I have gone through about two cornrow patterns to do most of my styles but as of now I have come to really like a new one (with some subtle changes from the pattern I used to do).
It has been a minute! I pretty much was busy/gone the month of August doing a World Masters synchronized swimming competition in Budapest, Hungary
Sometimes, in the interest of time and resources (I was preparing for one of my flea markets and I didn't have the hair I wanted to use for this short doo) you make mistakes and fail miserably.
So every once in awhile when I am at my flea markets and such talking to customers about my products and facial care, I get a lot of people asking for facial scrubs. A lot of the exfoliators/scrubs I make are for all parts of the body except the face and so many people are perplexed as to why I don't have facial scrubs/exfoliators. I honestly reply, I can't charge anyone for a facial exfoliator when the one I use at home is worth about 5 cents!
Even though it has been like a month since I got the Freetress Wand Curl / Jamaican Bounce #4 uninstalled (I am rocking the short presto curl tapered look again), I thought it important to put out a post and video on how to maintain them things!
This will be the last month I will be selling products yall...then...I am taking a break/vacation to Budapest, Hungary for most of August, then get prepared for some September cool new stuff! For now, come say hi/bye before I leave and indulge your senses in the new products for July!
This is one of the top ten most asked questions on crochet braids...and rightly so!
SOOOOOOOO many new products for June mostly because I have been expanding my table space at flea markets in and around LA.
I have written about the best crochet braids style for vacation and I thought it would be good idea to give away THREE discounted crochet braids services through the summer - one winner for JUNE, JULY and AUGUST!
YALL! I thought it was bout' time I look through all your comments and filter out the top ten most asked questions on my site about crochet braids. Let's get to it!
I did it! I did it! I was gonna wait to install this one until after synchro season but after getting encouraged from a stylist on instagram that said you can wear this doo in the water, I was all about this Freetress Wand Curl / Jamaican Bounce #4!!
With one more month till my favorite season (Summer!), I started selling some of my all natural products geared toward face, hair and body in some local Los Angeles Flea Markets!
So I had the distinct honor and privilege of doing my auntie's first ever crochet braids!! It was also the first time I ever used this specific texture of hair - Freetress Water Wave #27.
This is post is more of an updated version of the flax seed hair gel how-to post I know and love and have been using faithfully every time I do twists or even wash n gos!
I have been meaning to post an update about my newly attained length and pressing my hair way back when I did it during xmas time (Dec 2016)! I was very pleased with the results!
So I thought Wave Nouveau Moisturizing Finishing Lotion would be the end all and be all for all my crochet braids maintenance woes but my good friend who I got hooked on crochet braids introduced me to a great product that is saving my life with this hair!!
So to end my straightened cuban twist crochet braids journey I was looking forward to finally curling them with the perm rods and I was pleased with the results and how long it lasted without me having to re-dip it at all!
I have been loving (more than hating) this look for the past four weeks. I have also had ample time to experiment with a variety of styles, more than I can do with textured crochet braids.
I realize I really like to talk about skin health. Even after two years of being an herbal apprentice, I am by no means a clinical expert but I think combined with my experience as a acne/blemish sufferer most of my life on top of reading all things skin health related, I thought I would impart some of my knowledge on you on how to maintain your skin naturally.
So I'd thought with less than a month until synchro season starts and I am back in the water, I wanted to try a style I have been sooooo hesitant to try but I figured it's less than four weeks I would have to wear this so it can't be too bad.
Hey yall! Exciting news!! I will be selling my natural herbal products at Sip and Slay Holiday Party this Saturday, the 17th, in Downtown LA from 1-4pm.
So much has been happening the past two months and I have so much to blog about, including my recent and newest installation of Freetress presto curl #33 crochet braids with bangs! (check out the video!)
The ball is rolling yall! A lot of readers hail from the New York area and I finally teamed up with my friend Ty to start offering affordable crochet braids in New York!
I am listening guys! I really am! So I put together a long overdue blog post and put together a video (scroll to the bottom) on how to take down crochet braids (any style!).
