[Hair]Post-trim Hairstyle: High Puff

As I mentioned in an earlier post, with the recent trim I can no longer ponytail my hair. As a result, over the Thanksgiving Holiday I wore my high in a high puff. According to family members' opinions, it looks okay on me, but not as flattering as my other styles (low-hanging ponytail, elongated wash-and-go). For now… Continue reading [Hair]Post-trim Hairstyle: High Puff

Review: Jakeala Hair Products for the Max Hydration Method (Oh, wow!!!)

About the Max Hydration Method (Briefly) I became re-interested in doing the max hydration method (MHM) when a LongHairCareForum.com member advised me that for her, the MHM makes her hair more resistant to tangling and knots.
