My Very First Closure…..

You always have to start somewhere…. and that somewhere WOOOOOO was that a story…..

So let me tell ya’ll about my first closure experience….

I decided I wanted to enter the closure world so I talked about it with a friend of mine who worked in a salon not too far from my school. While having multiple talks about how exciting this would be and how she SLAYSSSSSSSSS closures, I said Why Not?!?!

She tells me she has 3 closures that I can pick from so we meet at potbelly

Yes

Potbelly

She pulls three closures out of her suitcase. The first closure was homicidal LMAO

Negative

She pulls out the second closure, its balding. So i’m like ehhhh maybe i’ll just stick to my twist outs and bantu knots.

The last one gave me some hope and after washing and conditioning it, it was pretty decent. At this point, it’s late like LATE so I decided I had no other choice but to continue with the installation since the wait would’ve then been a waste of time.

blah blah blah

1:30 A.M I finally return back to my dorm, wrapped my hair and went to bed my head was in dire pain. Now I was really excited because my roommate’s birthday was the next day and we were planning on getting dumb cute.

Come night time, I fleek my face and unwrap my hair and notice the closure was lifted, it wasn’t laying and just wasn’t the one one.

I was able to pull the ultimate ‘ Fake it till you make it ‘ but Kierra was one unhappy camper.

After a while I just couldn’t take it. I decided I had no choice but to think of another style that wouldn’t waste the installation but make it to the point where I actually wanted to wear it.

Then, this happened…… 🙂

So…. I’m a broke college student and really don’t have the funds to pay for hair products. Are there alternatives?

YES!!!!

You can obtain the same amount of conditioning and moisture from your very own kitchen.

Let’s call this Sweet Hair Salad 🤗

3 Eggs

2 Tablespoons of honey

3/4 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract (To dilute the mayo smell)

if you want, feel free to sprinkle some nutmeg in there

Beat the ingredients together very well and lather through scalp, strands, and ends.

Leave in for about 30 minutes with a plastic cap (or plastic bag) on your head.

When rinsing this concoction out of your hair, DO NOT USE HOT WATER

I promise you do not want to make an order of scrambled eggs in your hair topped with honey and mayonnaise.🤢  YUCK!

Make sure you rinse thoroughly…..

💁🏾   Egg yolk simulates the scalp, while the egg white serves as one of the best                        sources of protein. Protein makes the hair follicles stronger

💁🏾  Honey seals the moisture through your locs.

💁🏾  Mayo adds shine to your hair

💁🏾  Nutmeg works effectively to tone your hair. It also increases blood circulation                  in the scalp and helps hair growth. Keeping the hair shiny and silky, it adds                      volume to the hair

I am not my hair! I just 😍

Hair means a lot to me. It’s basically another way to express yourself. Depending on how I do my hair that’s how I feel. If I wake up in the morning and I’m mad at the world I’m definitely not going to do my hair but if you see my hair freshly pressed or in some curls just know I’m having a good day 😘

The Mannnneee Choice

If you’re looking for a lustrous moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for the low low,

This is the one one!

The Mane ‘n Tail and Body ® Shampoo and Conditioner formula ensures fuller, stronger, and healthier hair. The formula contains high lathering and ultra- cleansing agents that leaves the hair soft and clean, while preventing hair breakage and repair split ends.

I like to do about 2 washes, maybe 3 if i’ve put a lot of product in my hair. Then, leaving the conditioner in for at least 15 minutes. (Sometime longer if I get distracted haha) 

Your curls will POP and the softness will have you feeling through your locs all day.
