Hair Chronicles: Update &Top Knot Bun Style!

I must say that my hair has been thriving since I said goodbye to hair relaxers almost three years ago. As a refresher, I had my last relaxer in October 2012. And I transitioned and chopped off the majority of the relaxer in November 2013:



I still had some relaxer in the above pics but I cut the rest off myself around Christmas time ’13 . Anyways, I finally had my hair pressed out again this past April since I had engagement pictures:

I had a trim the week prior to this press and I’m happy with my progress so far! I’ve mentioned that I am a lazy natural and will continue to be one because it is working for me. Though I’m lazy with my hair, I did manage to pull off this style seen here on YouTube:

And done!










I was going to add Marley Hair but I realized my own hair would suffice *happy dance*. I am currently still rocking this style (Day 5); I just wrap my hair at night in this style and moisturize and slick down the edges in the morning.

Here are the products I used:

More about Udeme

Hi! I'm Udeme and I'm an attorney by day and a blogger by night. I dropped 70 pounds 12 years ago and health/fitness became a passion of mine. I live in the DC metro area with my "husby" although I'll forever be a California girl at heart. I love a good read, BravoTV, natural hair, anything fitness related (of course) and spending time with my family and friends. ?


    1. I’m going to use the Aphogee Protein treatment. I used and love it when I had a perm but realize that my natural hair needs it too. And I trust it.

      1. I’ve actually never used it. I used to hear it was complicated so I was intimidated by it. But maybe folks were just dramatic :p

    1. I’ve been wearing my top knot for so long as my protective style… I finally took it down & straightened my hair yesterday. I’m so tempted to put my hair back up. You can’t go wrong with a top knot and some hoops.
