DIY Chic Flower Headband | No Sew - Naptural85

I've been obsessing over flower headbands, and finally decided to just go ahead and make my own! I love that you can choose your own color palette to make it fit your personal style! An alternative to the Flower Crown, this super easy DIY Homemade Flower Headband is perfect for summer festivals, weddings, bridesmaids and flower girls, and photoshoots! And it sits inside, and compliments, your big natural hair better than your average flower crown! I hope you enjoy! If you make your own, please be sure to share it with me! XoXo!! Nap

Length Check #6 | Recovering From Damage | Natural Hair Growth - Naptural85

LENGTH CHECKS ARE BACK!! Hey Guys! I stopped doing length checks about two years ago, once my hair grew out to my longest length ever. I was happy with it, and I didn't need to track the growth anymore. But now that I've experienced damage to my natural hair, from hair color dye and heat damage, I think it's time to start tracking my progress again to see if my new growth theory actually works! So here is my Natural Hair Length Check #6: the first in my Journey to Recovering From Heat Damage and Hair Color Damage! The next one will probably be in a few months to see the progress! I hope you enjoy! 

XoXo! Nap

A Complete Week in My New Hair Washing Routine | Natural Hair Growth Test

**THIS IS NOT MY STAPLE ROUTINE - I'm currently testing a washing theory. Everything in this video relates ONLY to this new "theory" routine, which is still in testing stages** FULL BREAKDOWN BELOW!

Sup Guys! There's a TON of information in this video... I'm not kidding! Probably my longest video EVER made! But I really wanted to cover all the details and try to answer any/all questions you might have about this routine. This is my NEW Natural Hair Washing Routine for Hair Growth and Moisture Retention! I'm still in the testing stages of this, but a lot of you guys wanted the details, so after months of doing this routine, I've finally put this video together for you. It shows a COMPLETE week in this routine, as well as some Do's, Don'ts, and things to avoid so you have a positive experience. There's also a bit about the Water Only Washing Method! It took me a really long time to get this all together for you guys so I really hope you enjoy it, and most importantly, I hope it helps!

XoXo!! Nap
