Hair Candy

I had my last relaxer in May 09 and started transitioning in June 09. Along my 5 month journey I've learned how to care for my hair and what it likes (coconut oil, twists) and what turned out to be epic fails (braid outs, sleeping before it's dry).

For the Fall, I was on the hunt for a new look that would offer me the fullness I wanted, but not take so much time in the morning. This dream style came in the form of the classic twist n curl. It offers protection from the weather as well as the big hair that I love so much! Once I figured out that this style was for me I knew that I was still missing something. Like a necklace or earrings can add the finishing touches to a outfit you're wearing, a headband or hair pin can be the pièce de résistance.

A fun way for me, and other naturals, to spice up their wild curls is by adding a funky hair accessory. I've become hooked on decorative headbands and pins which can mostly be found at stores like Forever 21 for under $10. If your pockets are deep, head over to places like Bebe where you can find things to make your hair sparkle... but expect to have that price tag be a bit steeper (usually over $35 for a single headband).
