I’m Feeling Myself | Natural Hair Comic

I love fluffing my hair. Some days I be feelin' myself and start posing in front of the mirror. #goodhairday. I also love playing in my hair after a good blowout. The bigger the hair the harder they stare...

You Are The Real MVP | Natural Hair Comic

We all have our bad hair days. Sometimes our hair can be so annoying. You do one still the night before for it only to be ish the next day. Talk about wasted time. Not every twist out is created equal. I know when I can't get my hair to cooperate I will end up with a french twist on each size or puff.ย 

Shout out to the folks who boost us on our bad days. So when you see a fellow naturalista give her compliment on her hair

Second Day Hair Is The Best Hair | Natural Hair Comic

Why is it that 2nd day or 3rd day hair is always the best!? If only I could achieve this on first day hair. I have tight coils so my shrinkage is like 50%. I absolutely HATE shrinkage. And please do not tell me it's something I just need to accept as a naturalista. Like no I don't. Its been 10 years and still do not eff with shrinkage. That being said wash n' gos are a no go.

My twist outs can happen on wet or dry hair depending on how I'm feeling Sunday (aka wash day). If I want to achieve something close to 2nd hair then I'll blow my hair out prior to twisting because diffusing does not giving the look I want.ย 

I don't necessary dislike 1st day hair because sometimes it be looking real cute. But watching my hair expand I'm just like get it girl! Second or third day hair the ish because your hair starts stretching and volume is escalating. We WANT BIG ASS HAIR. WE WANT THOSE STARES. I want my hair as big as it can get. Its funny because when I wear my 1st day to work I always get asked if I cut my hair...<insert eyeroll and laugh emoji>ย 

Do you prefer 2nd or 3rd day hair?

I Dread Wash Day | Natural Hair Comic

I created this illustration back in 2014 and is probably what gravitated the natural hair community to my work on Instagram. It's always fun to re-create old artwork and see your growth.

Sunday Wash Day!

Why do all naturals designate Sundays as their wash day? Surely not all of us work Monday-Friday. I mean I do...but that's besides the point. Sunday is my most laziest day yet I will only wash my hair on that day. Also if I don't wash my hair by like 5pm on Sunday then I'm going another week without washing it. Call me the lazy naturalista baby.

I mean after a week my hair is usually stretched to perfection...why ruin it with washing it? Probably cause it stinks...BUT does it really!? That's why they invented essential oils aka TEA TREE OIL. I can't be the only lazy naturalista out here. Thank goodness for French twist aka Goddess Crown and puff hair do's๐Ÿ˜‰
