I have tried more hairstyles in the past three years (since my big chop) than ever before. But surprisingly, I’ve never tried achieving curls through Bantu Knots. I came across the video below via youtube and I really like AFRICANEXPORT‘s hair. I’ll have to try this look once I take down my box braids. Watch, enjoy and please be sure to check out more videos by AFRICANEXPORT on youtube.
Last year I had a thing for black hair. So, I dyed my hair black. That was fun. Now, I think I have the same fixation with blonde/brown hair. What is up? Maybe I’m excited about spring or something. Who knows!?! Maybe I’ll try a pretty light brown this spring. Below are a few folks whose hair has caught my eye….
Beyonce, Rihanna and Shateria (<- I LOVE her hair)
I love award shows, especially those dedicated to film and television. Last night, while watching the Golden Globe Awards I saw a few hairstyles that I had to mention on Hair She Goes Again.
Let me start with Halle Berry. This woman can wear a pixie cut for the rest of her life and it will still be fabulous. She looked beautiful last night.
I also enjoyed Anne Hathaway’s short cut. I thought it was very feminine and fitting for her face shape.
Lucy Liu’s side swept braid deserves an honorable mention.
One of my favorite and possibly the most popular style last night was the ‘big loose wavy curls swept to one side’ look.
But of all the ladies who wore this look, J-Lo definitely took the cake. She looked A-MA-ZING!!!!
Last night I used small flexi rods (red and blue) on my hair to achieve spiral curls. Well, this morning I began to take the rods down and my curls were so tight. This was probably because I set the rods on “damp, not completely dry” hair. ‘Oh well’ I thought. As I stretched the curls, my hair got bigger and…wait, I actually like this. Ha! Solange and her recent big hair came to mind and I ‘fluffed’ away. The pictures do NO justice to how big and beautiful this hair turned out. I LOVE IT!!!! s/o to samegirldifferenthair.com (yup, same install I blogged about a few weeks ago).
Hiiii, I’m so excited to review my purchase from Same Girl Different Hair. I posted about the launch over a month ago (http://hairshegoesagain.wordpress.com/2012/11/09/mia-ray-same-girl-different-hair/) and I wanted to wear the hair for a while to be able to give an accurate review.
When I received the hair it was brown, comparable to maybe a “#2″. It was actually very close to my natural hair color but since I have been wearing my hair black, I dyed the extensions before they were installed and washed them using Clear Scalp Hair Therapy (a product I received in my Curlbox). The extensions are 18 inch deep wave.
The packaging was nice and neat and there was even a SGDH t-shirt included. I liked the texture of the hair and I liked that the hair was not thin or too silky, especially since I have very thick hair. I had never worn virgin extensions or wavy hair before SGDH so I was a little concerned because I didn’t know if the two bundles I ordered would be full enough to cover my big head. Well, not only was the hair enough but my stylist had a little left over.
The day after the install my hair was big. I like big hair but I’m talking Sister Act, Sister Mary Clarence big. This was not a mark against the hair itself but all on my part since I blow dried the hair before my install. The website states to let hair air-dry before install but I was rushing and did not listen. Bad Chenal So, day two I decided to co wash my hair and let it air-dry this time and baby, the love affair began!!!! Every good thing people have had to say about SGDH is right. A few things I love is that the hair took the dye well, it is very light weight, it is bouncy, it blends well with my non-relaxed hair, it is easy to curl, straighten and maintain.
At night, I put it in a high bun and put on my bonnet or I section it into four sections and braid each section then put on my bonnet. I love how wavy and pretty it is the morning after I braid it. I have worn this hair in it’s natural wave, straightened, curled (by flexi rod) and wavy (by braid). I’m sure results will vary for each individual and a good sew in is all about a good install, healthy hair underneath and proper maintenance but I will definitely purchase Same Girl Different Hair in the future and I highly recommend it.

‘Hair’ she goes again indeed!!!!!!! Sigh!
Ever since I saw this pic of Solange, I’ve had an eye on her (and her hair).
Whether she’s wearing a natural low cut or box braids, Solange does not disappoint. HAIRSPIRATION!!!!
Okay ladies, here are a few videos on how to achieve pretty bouncy curls. These videos/tutorials are not my own, but simply those I have seen online or tried and liked the result. Enjoy!!!

I LOVE this stuff, it leaves my hair SO soft. The package says to sit under a dryer for 30 minutes (I think) or leave on for an hour without heat. I usually massage this all over my hair, root to tip and put on a foil cap. I purchased the cap ( and the olive oil pak) from Walmart. The cap traps in the moisture and after an hour or two (sometimes longer, depending on what I’m doing), I rinse the conditioner and soft soft soft hair is what I have. LOVE IT!!! Give it a try
