These pics are at various times throughout my hair journey! Whenever you are at in your hair journey, remember that we all start somewhere, and sometimes we encounter bumps in the road on the way to our goal! In my case, it was getting 9 inches cut off of my waist length hair. But these bumps can be anything from heat damage, to chemical damage, neglect, or even completely restarting after a relaxer. In life, we will encounter a "bump in the road" at some point. But we learn, grow, and "bounce back" (Big Sean voice). πŸ˜‚ Search "4 Years Natural Hair Journey: Hip Length From Big Chop" to see my hair journey. And for my hair routine, fav products, and hair tips I used to grow my hair long, check out my YouTube channel: Jewellianna Palencia. Also, I have lots of tips right here on Insta if you search (#)jewequestions.

My wash n go's have always been super frizzy and undefined. I chalked it up as my hair just doing what it does. Recently I've been working on perfecting it bc sometimes wash n go's are much easier, especially on vacation (seriously who wants to worry about twisting their hair when you're on a beach). Just when I was about to give up, lo & behold my best wash (do the most) & go to date πŸ™ŒπŸ½ I've never seen my hair this defined or stretched without using a blow dryer. What I did differently this time was do it in the shower with soaking wet hair. I also finger detangled my hair before I began washing and made sure not to finger comb or anything after that; just let my curls naturally clump together. I also didn't use any tools (denman brush, tangle teaser) which I used in the past. Lastly the most important thing was the products. I used @ouidad's Advanced Climate Control Collection and the Heat & Humidity Gel was definitely the star of the show and really helped define and keep my curls stretched.

I decided to leave my twists in and wear them as a style. Hadn't done it in a while. I forgot how clutch twists are in hot weatherπŸŒžπŸ™πŸΎβœ¨#naturalhair #twists #protectivestyle

A new video is up on my channel (link in bio)!πŸ’œ I tried the @kurleebelle line for the first time, and I am super impressed!πŸ’ž
✨ How I got the style:
1️⃣ The night before, I washed my hair with the @kurleebelle shampoo which left my hair so moisturized (new fav!) and deep conditioned with the Banana & Avocado deep conditioner (smells great). 2️⃣ The next day I used 8 jumbo flexi rods using the cream and gel as my stylers.
3️⃣ Sat under the dryer for an hour and 20 mins then took them down and styled. πŸ’— #kurleebelle #flexirods #naturalhair

Social media gives us all the ability to present just the best version of ourselves. Hair done. Tummy perfectly sucked in. Acne photoshopped away. I'm starting to realize that it's just as important to document change as it is to present perfection.

#texturethursday my cutie pie wanted a new "big girl" look, so we decided to give her an actual curly cut. So I did a softened #DevaCut with a bang, cut & shaped it adding some layering strategically to make her curls pop. With her hair strands being so fine and so long, the weight of an even cut was starting to give her "helmet" hair. Now removing some of the weight is giving her nice bouncy curls, she says "I love my hair, can I keep my bangs forever" lol. This cut was styled with #Asiam Leave In Conditioner, #MielleOrganics Honey Ginger Styling Gel w/just a touch of our staple #unclefunkysdaughter Curly Magic scrunched in for extra hold ( it's 98 degrees and humid here).

My hair has been sooooo dry 😩 so I decided to keep it in bun for a few days. It's been dry bc I've been doing #washandgo styles which do not allow my hair to retain moisture. Need to go back to my #twistout after this. 😬
