Wash & Go

Hello my naturalistas! Just finished washing my hair & I like to take pictures afterwards to document my progress. I got a new phone today & my camera is bomb!! It makes my pictures look so much better than it did on my last phone. My curls are so full of life and defined. I also have a Instagram of my hair. Feel free to follow my insta @naturallyzatala

Summertime fine 🌼

Hello my naturalistas! I know I’ve been MIA but bare with me. So much is going on in my life & I don’t have as much time to blog as I’d like; but I have great news to share. I got my hair dyed ☺️☺️ I’m officially a semi-blonde! My color has been growing out for the longest & I just had the idea to go bright! I wanted a new, fresh look for before summer ends. I love it so much! Of course after a few washes the color will set in more. Sometimes you just need a new look & this is exactly what I needed. Below are pictures from me styling my hair for my wash and go.

Hello my naturalistas! Today was wash day & I decided that I was going to try the tangle teezer on my hair. As you all know, I still am a wash&go type gal, so I used the tangle teezer to help me style the product through my hair. I must say I love it! It helped me style my hair so much quicker than raking my fingers through my hair. I still raked my fingers through my hair, but the brush also helped as well. I will say that the brush made me curls tighter than they are when I finger rake, but overall I love it!

Hello my naturalistas! I know I have been MIA and I apologize, but I just graduated from college last month and have been working a lot. But yesterday was my one year and eight months mark since I did the big chop!!! I’m so happy and can’t believe it’s been this long. I keep learning more and more about my natural hair and I love it. Although I don’t love how time consuming being natural is, it’s very rewarding in the end. I have an Instagram of my natural hair and feel free to follow. I will try to post more regularly!

Don’t be afraid to try something new πŸŒ±

Hello my naturalistas! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA! With school and work, I’ve just been so busy. But I’m writing to let y’all know this AMAZING experience I had today. Okay so as many of y’all know (from reading previous posts) that I do wash&go’s. Well up until today, I used creams to style my hair with my wash&go. I’ve had bad experiences with gels and just didn’t like how they made my hair feel. Well although I liked using creams, there was some cons that I didn’t like.

Cons of creams I’ve used

  1. Makes your hair white
  2. Takes forever to air dry
  3. Because of the consistency, my hair was constantly dripping

Those are the 3 cons I personally had with creams, but I did like how my hair looked when it dried. But today I tried a new product and was amazed at how well it works! 😱😱😱 now it is expensive, but to me it’s definitely worth it! It’s Design Essentials Natural Honey Curl Forming Custard! When I tell you i absolutely LOVE this product now! The consistency is not too thick, to me it doesn’t have that “gel” feel and doesn’t make your hair hard. My curls are so defined (creams defined my curls too) and soft! My hair also hasn’t shrunk with this product (well not yet, I hope it doesn’t) nor is my hair white while I’m letting it air dry (like creams usually are). The only downfall with this product is the price is $15 & the jar is so tiny! I’m hoping eventually they’ll sale it in a bigger size.

Well i just wanted to let y’all know about my amazing experience. Feel free to comment whether you use creams/gels or if you’ve tried this product.

Twist out part 2

Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA. I have been busy with school and work. I have news though. So yesterday I washed my hair and decided to try a twist out again. I tried a twist out once before and I was unsatisfied, but I wanted to see how it would go this time. IT WAS AN EPIC FAIL. Now I will say, my twists were big and I didn’t have that many of them, but still. I was really hoping the second go around was going to be successful and I could switch between twist out and wash and go’s. I will only be doing wash and goes for now on. I just wish youtubers wouldn’t make it seem so easy when they’re doing theirs, when it’s totally not. Well you know what they say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. What works for someone else may now work for me. No one’s hair is the same and I’m okay with that.

Growth 🌱

Hello everyone! I was going through my hair photos and was realizing how much my hair has grown. Last week I took a photo after I washed my hair (usually I take photos on wash days to record growth) and I was amazed at how long my hair is (now when it dries, that’s a different story because of shrinkage). My hair feels so healthy and next week will be 1 year and 5 months since I big chopped my hair. Time has flown! I’m looking forward to my 2 year mark to see how long my hair will be then. Of course length doesn’t mean everything because I like my hair to be healthy as well.

Below is a picture of my growth from September 2017 to last week Feb 2018
