Tribal Earrings

One of my favorite accessories is earrings!  I often use them as a statement piece.  Within the past few months, I've added more earrings to my ever growing collection.  I kept my outfit simple but added flare with my jewelry and accessories.

This pair of tribal earrings added flare and interest to my look.  I paired them with miniature post earrings of various colors (my go to when I want something simple for the other piercings in my ears).  I can't wait to share more of my new jewelry!  See you in my next post. ♥

Cute & Sporty OOTD

This Outfit of the Day unintentionally matches my blog. :)

When I have a lot of errands to run, I tend to lean towards a comfortable pair of pants, casual shoes, and a graphic t-shirt.  In this outfit, I wore one of my favorite pair of athletic sneakers and a MGM Grand tee that is a gift from my mom.  I pulled my hair back off my face and I was ready to go!

See you in my next post! ♥

3 Year Loc Journey Anniversary! - New Hair Color!

Eeee!  I'm super excited because my locs are officially 3 years (and one month lol) old!  My annual celebration consists of coloring my hair.

Following my 1 year loc anniversary, I colored my tips.  After my 2 year loc anniversary, I colored above my colored tips from the previous year.  And this year, to celebrate my 3 year loc anniversary, I colored my hair starting from the most recently locked part of my locs down to last year's color. =)

My hair has grown so much over the past year.  I'm excited to continue my natural hair journey / loc journey / length journey.  See you in my next post! ♥

Locs Length Check Update: 6-1-15

Exactly a month ago, I took photos for my most recent length check during my loc journey.  Caring for my hair is much easier now; I have products that I love and that I know work great for me and my lifestyle.  The bummer is that my Eczema is really bothering me!  This restricts styling options since I shampoo my scalp frequently and more than anything, it is just absolutely uncomfortable!

On a lighter note, my loc journey is coming along.  My hair is closer to bra strap length than ever before.  In the past, I always trimmed my hair once it grew to the length it is now.

Coming up in my next blog post will be my recent hair color!  Each year, to celebrate my loc anniversary, I color my hair.  This year, I colored the hair that grew in over the past year and I absolutely love it!  Every few months (three to four months) I plan to do length checks.  There are more style related posts coming soon! ♥

Scalp Treatment for Eczema Relief | 3 Day Regimen

Before coloring my hair earlier this month to mark my three year loc anniversary, I had a really bad eczema flare up!  To combat the flare and to prepare my scalp for either hair color or all the rinsing that would be involved in rinsing out the hair color, I dedicated three straight days to caring for my scalp.

My shampoo of choice for eczema flare ups in general is Head & Shoulder's Classic Clean shampoo.  It can be found at most stores that sell hair products specifically and at your local supermarket (Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc.).  I shampooed my hair nightly (my hair seems to do better being wet overnight versus during the day) and I simply rinsed my hair out with water and kept it moving.  I didn't bother conditioning on day two and day three, because my hair shaft itself was not shampooed.

My Favorite Conditioners (Locs/Dreadlocks, Natural Hair)

Products for Colored Locs/Natural Hair + Products for Scalp Eczema Relief

This method worked for me extremely well.  The next time I experience a really bad eczema flare up, I plan to revisit this method!  Hopefully now that Summer is in full swing, my allergies will not bother me as much. :) ♥

Casual OOTD Accessories + Easy Loc Style: High Pineapple with Head Wrap

For a few weeks, I kept my hair styling to a minimum and focused on my jewelry and accessories instead.  I wear this high pineapple ponytail around the house, at night to sleep in, during certain workout routines, and even as a style outside the home.  To spice things up, I add head wraps, scarves, and headbands adorned with flowers and more. ♥
