Curl of the Day: Jill Scott’s Fab Cornrows

Check this out curls…


Miss Jill Scott rocked this fab look at the premiere of “Why Did I Get Married Too”! Check out tips and products her stylist Felicia M. Leatherwood (total sweetheart) recommends over on Essence.


I like to apply a light leave in like Jane Carter’s Revitalizing Leave In Spray and follow braiding with an oil based hair butter to keep things smooth like Carol’s Daughter Loc Butter.  I’ve been eyeing B.A.S.K.’s Java Bean and Honey Hair Balm to replace CD’s butter. Leatherwood also stated she uses Bohyme Brazilian Wave my favorite curly weave of all time. These extensions blend so well with natural hair especially 3c and 4a tpyes.


Curly Obsessions

It all started with a picture I cut out from a Jet magazine of my favorite singer, Jill Scott while in high school. I kept the picture in my assignment book  as a reminder of how I want my hair upon entering college.


As years went on I finally had natural hair. Last October I set a goal to wear my hair in its natural state for as long as possible. This wasn’t the easiest thing since I would use my flat iron multiple times a day. Since then I have somewhat gotten obsessed with the curlies on TV, magazines, and even people on the street. I think its healthy to have hair idols. Personally I find it motivating yet secretly I plan to steal there styles because until recently I have been clueless in the hair styling department.

Each week I will try and post a “curly obession”. Whether I can snap a picture out on the street or from a celebrity I feel the need to give them a little praise and hopefully inspirie other naturals to embrace and love their hair.

My current curly obsession is obvisiously  Solange Knowles (that’s her in the header). Although I’m 99% sure its not all of her hair I still think its absolutely hot and want to achieve that thickness and length in the near future, hence this blog which I also intend to keep track of my hair’s growth.



I would love to know who your curly obsessions are so please share (lol that sounds kind of desperate). In the mean time I have a lot more to post so ttyl!
