Photo Tip for Vacationers

As the weather warms up and you're thinking about vacation, here's a quick photo tip you'll want to keep in mind.

As we travel, we often want to take photos in front of a famous monument or building. Before you snap that photo, position yourself to the left or right of the monument so that your body is not blocking the monument you want to remember. It's a simple tip that makes a huge difference to your photographs.

Installing My First Kinky Twists

As summer nears, I plan on being out and about with my camera. I don't want to be stuck in the house dealing with my hair too often, so when I watched a video by YouTuber ToniDaley80 speaking about installing kinky twists, I wanted to try installing a set of them on myself.

Prepping Natural Hair for Twists, Braids or Weave
  1. I cleansed with a moisturizing shampoo and on my final rinse used a 1:3 Apple cider vinegar : Water mix. 
  2. Deep conditioned using a heating cap.
  3. I stretched my hair by twisting it loosely in large sections. When the twists were about 80% dry, I applied a few drops of jojoba oil to my hands and I divided each twist into 2 smaller sections. I stretched it further by starting off with a braid only at the root and then a loose twist.
Keep in mind that I did not do this all in one day. While the twists were air drying, I put on a knitted hat and went to the park with Hubby, my dog, and my Nikon. The process left my hair so soft, I could hardly keep my hands out of it. I will repeat this process upon take down.
