Natural Hair on The Corner- Chasing That One Perfect Twist Out
Have you ever had a twist out that surprised you? It came out so well that you wished you could hold onto it forever. You slept with your head kind of on your arm, like Regina King did in Friday, so you won’t mess it up.
That’s the thing with natural hair. Every time you touch your hair is different. No two twists outs are alike. That’s why I laugh when people try to compare their hair to mine or ask exactly what I did. I’m looking like, I can’t get my hair to look the same always, how can you mimic my look? But that’s another conversation.
Anywho, I’ve been chasing this twist out for almost a year now. It was done on my birthday last year right after I colored, cut, deep conditioned and blew my tresses out. I used the whipped shea I made (raw shea butter, Jamaican Black Castor oil, olive oil, water and coconut oil) and a dab of Eden BodyWorks All Natural Coconut Shea Pudding Souffle in Soft Hold. My hair was so soft and had great definition. The color popped and it bounced as a I walked or spinned my head.
Ahhhhhh!! Does this happen to anyone else? Did you have a time, where your twist out was so great, you tried to recreate it over and over again? Do tell.
Natural Hair on The Corner- Lupita’s Versatility
I saw various posts on ig and tweets saying how does she keep changing her hair? The answer is she’s natural.
Being natural comes with the versatility of being straight, low and curly, or blown out like she’s wearing in this pic.
Natural is chock full of fun for anyone who dares to transform at anytime.
Get into it!!!

Women’s Fashion on The Corner- Zara Denim Swing Dress
Hello Loves! It seems like fall has finally decided to arrive in NYC. I pulled a few things out of the closet that have a heavier fabric. I’ve had this dress for a long time. Its probably close to 10 years old. I love how the thick, heavy denim was cut and tailored. The close fit of the bodice and the swing at the bottom has made it a go to piece for me over the years.
Since I’m one of the lucky people that gain weight mostly on my bottom half, this dress has been ale to fit whether I go up or down. Paired with my fav hunter green snakeskin Cesare Paciotti pumps, a jeweled necklace and some enamel bracelets, I was classy and simple yet chic. On my Whitley Gilbert from A Different World. lol. I’m feeling skirts and girly pieces these days. Let’s see where this goes.
What looks are you all going for this fall? Do tell.

Natural Hair on The Corner- I Went Green Literally!
When I was 14 I put my first color in my hair. Since then its been yellow, blond, red, orange, plum and sometimes three or four of these colors at once. Yes, way before Nicki Minaj wore colorful hair, I did it.
This year I kept saying I’m going to color my hair green. Everyone was like green? Side eyeing me and ish. But knowing the person that I am and how obsessed I am with the color, they knew I was going to do it. My mother said “oh yes that would be nice”. LOL
When I showed up on my birthday with these tresses, I was met with one word, DOPE! I love the color, in fact I may deepen it. My twist out was done with Eden BodyWorks’ new Coconut Shea Curling Pudding in Medium Hold. It was used on blown hair. I love the definition here and it smells amazing. It was moisturizing and my hair felt like a fluffy pillow. No crunch and munch like some curly puddings give you.
Well there you have it. I was knocked off my rocker for a while but I’m coming back to me. This is just the beginning. Ride wit me.
PS- I can’t use dyes on my hair. It breaks off. However, I’ve been bleaching it and changing the colors with semi permanent rinses for years. Deep conditioning is just a must.
