Natural Hair X Weave X Summer Vs Winter Styles

I love hair, changing up a look or updating an image. That's why I've learned how to transition my natural hair from summer to winter time. I've been natural for over a year (Honestly, it's been so long I just know it's been over a year could be two.) I love weave though, I don't care what anyone says, it is so easy to manage and helps my hair grow tremendously. 

Unlike the lies people say is you stop getting a perm it is not guaranteed your hair will fall out. Mind you I trimmed my own hair because an afro looks weird with straight ends... The routine I've now grown accustom to is straight hair during the winter so my hair can rest and I can deep condition my hair in between hair styles, while during the summer I love my hair out, being free, driving with the top down and loving my curls. Mind you it is a tad bit of maintenance because I wet and braid/twist my hair go to sleep and let it out. Sometimes it gets frizzy in two seconds and sometimes I resort to a little secret technique *wink. 

However, I have been using Miss Jessies, the new creamy crack and it defines my curl way more and gives it a brilliant shine, smell and bounce. I can easily go from jumping in a pool, shower to sleep, wake up and not look like a wet dog. 
What do you do to maintain your summer/winter hairstyles?

NGD X Summer X Custom Apparel and Jewelry

This summer is about to be...

Trials and tribulations fuel me to creatively express myself through my business #NikGoldDesigns. Coming up on a year of selling online my profits and experience helped me grow #LiveGold #ShopGold from a line to a brand, and a way of life. People can copy material from you, put you down and there will also be missed opportunities but no one can ever steal your creative mind, persistence and talent. This summer there is so much more in store and I get to work with clients I look up to. 

Creativity X Progress X Positivity

Shoe Porn X Del Toro X Brian Atwood

I've been cyberstalking Del Toro's collection of flats and I don't even wear flats! I'm in love with his characteristics of color, fun and fashion forwardness in each shoe.

Visit his extensive collection here! http://www.deltoroshoes.com/

I also have found a love in Brian Atwood, first introduced to his strappy numbers I eventually became solely attracted to his brilliant fashion aesthetic  bringing practicality, shapes, colors and patterns onto a well designed shoe.

Music Video X @DimitriMcDowell @MrNewEra13

Covering one of my favorite artists and friends @DimitriMcDowell he teams up with @MrNewEra13 to make a superbly covered "B**** Don't Kill My Vibe" , filmed on spring break in Panama. They put their own unique vibe and mesmerizing lyrics on the song and made it theirs!
Take a listen below and check out some of my former posts on Musical genius Dimitri McDowell. 
Christmas EP X Interview with artist Dimitri McDowell

I love poetry!
The feeling it emits by describing episodes and moments in time.
I have to have the "define craftmenship" of art, feeling and color. Take a look of this emotionally channeled poem below
