My Hair Update–I’m restless…to cut or not to cut?

Hola!  So we are having lovely weather here in NYC…not!  Why oh why must we endure this treacherous polar vortex!?!  I digress and shall continue on to the post at hand…my hair.  I did an update last month called “New Year Re”Hair”solution” where I stated that I was going to let my hair grow this year.  Well I may be retracting on that just a bit and I blame it all on naturallycurly.com.  Yesterday they posted pics of Yesenia a Junior Hair Stylist at Hair Rules Salon here in NYC and I instantly fell for her cut.  It is all types of fabulous perfection!  Take a peek.

I love this asymmetrical bob because it is not to short and gives her curls shape.  So what are your thoughts?  Do you think that it would lool right on me or should I just continue with my growth journey?  Chime in peeps!

Tips to Fight Frizz on Rainy Days

Hola peeps!  Happy first day of Spring!  I hope all is good with ya.  Since Spring is finally here that not only means warmer temps but rain and humidity too….bummer!  Oh well I suppose I will take the good with bad because as long as it is warm out I can deal.  Just as we adjust our wardrobe to prep for the change in weather we must do the same with our tresses.  Through trial and error I have found out that heavy products (i.e. creams) and any attempt at straight hair a la a blow-out is a big NO NO during this fickle time of year.  Luckily, I am going to share a few of my tips that I use to fight the frizz!

*Leave-in conditioner-  It works wonders to keep your hair moisturized and in tact!

*Oils Try Castor Oil and Coconut Oil…they work best to seal my ends.

*Stylers- Choose ones that maintain moisture (preferably that contain Glycerin) and doesn’t dry out your hair with harsh chemicals/alcohol.  I can’t get enough of Eco-Styler Olive Oil Gel and Hair Rules Kinky Curly Cream.

*Hair styles- WNG, updos, twists, and braids are all cute and easy styles that can be rocked when the air is a bit damp.  Your hair will either adapt to the weather and own the frizz in a WNG or be protected and out-of-the-way in a updo.  The featured pic is of me last March rockin a braid-out updo.  Loved it!

I hope that these tips help in the rainy season that is to come.  So do you have any secrets you would like to share?  How do you fight the frizz?  Do tell…
