Edges & Nape

  • This is my sixth and final check-in for this challenge I started back in July. Time sure does fly! When I first started out, my main goal was to baby my nape to prevent additional breakage. The last 6 months have been good ones for my nape. What has helped…

  • It’s month five of my nape challenge, just one more month to go! I’ve kept up with sealing my nape (and my other ends as well) with Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum and I’m still in love with it. Trimming off 2 inches at the end of November has definitely…

  • It’s been a month since I posted about embarking on 6 month nape challenge to baby my nape and prevent the breakage I already have there from getting worse. My texlaxed hair from roots to my shoulders is fine… but after that point, it’s a whole ‘nother story. As I…

  • At the start of my hair journey, my nape was the one section that gave me a lot of grief. It was drastically shorter than the rest of my hair – the left side was about 2 inches long at the very start – and the scalp at my nape…

  • I posted last week on successfully laying my edges using Eco Styler Gel in Smoother Edges Part I. I’ve found a second gem for my edges in aloe vera gel. Aloe vera gel doesn’t hold as long as Eco Styler does, but it leaves my hair softer and more moisturized…
