Miss Jessie’s and I have decided to make your weekend brighter by collaboration on a big natural hair giveaway during this pandemic.
BLACK OWNED LEAVE IN CONDITIONERS THAT YOU NEED TO BE USING
I love working with brands and totally get giddy when working with Black-owned brands. It makes me happy to share what they have to offer and make sure you know them well. Here’s some information on the hugely popular and successful line, Miss Jessie’s Original.
Founded by sisters Miko and Titi Branch, Miss Jessie’s products took the curly hair market by storm in 2004! Armed with curly hair product development from their salon/workshop, they were able to perfect their curly hair product’s performance. Known for its expertise in styling curly, kinky, and wavy hair of all types and textures, Miss Jessie’s Salon became the go-to place for curly hair solutions.
The inspiration behind Miss Jessie’s (and the source of the brand’s name) came from their paternal grandmother: the no-nonsense Miss Jessie Mae Branch. When they were children, Miss Jessie would concoct all sorts of mixtures and formulas at her kitchen table to help tame and style her grand daughter’s wild curly hair.

This giveaway is for residents of the US its territories ONLY.
What i have beed doing for my natural hair is taking more time with it doing pre poo deep conditiong for more than 30 min things that i didnt usually have the time to do
In these times I’ve been doing my normal wash day routine, doing braids for a braidout, except I don’t take the braids out, lol.
Girl, it is hard out here with us getting used to our new normal. you are good!
Thanks! I sometimes eh skip it but I do it, it gives me a source of normality.
During this time, I have mainly kept my hair on twist. I try to deep condition once every week or once every other week. I’m trying to think of ways that I can manipulate my hair less and maintain moisture and length retention. I live in a desert biome and especially since its summer it’s been an extra task to avoid dryness. Also, since I now have the time, I’m going to try to finally learn how to cornrow my hair.
