Shea Moisture F&%#ED Up With Racist Ad?

Hey guys! So, I know that everyone has already heard about the whole Shea Moisture fiasco, with the new ad showcasing Caucasian women instead of us. I already made a video about this topic, so if you have not yet seen it, here it is.


This topic has pretty much died down now, but I still feel the same way. I am still limiting my Shea Moisture purchases from here on out. This company was built on the backs of blacks, and yet again, it's being stripped away from us as usual. I don't support that! Hope you enjoy the video.

I have not been writing in this blog lately. I've been finding ways to balance my time since having baby #5 around. I will get it together. Life hasn't been very favorable this year, but it'll all mellow out. I am still making videos for your guys, just not as consistent at the moment. 
Follow me on Instagram and Facebook @ Curls of Innocence! Peace.

CUTE Braided Bun Style!




Hey curlies!
 I wanted to share these pictures just to say how much LOVE braided buns. They're simple and they protect the ends of your braids, or twists, if you do those instead. The patterns of the braid looks pretty all wrapped up in a bun. You can do as many braids as you want and then jazz then up by bunning some of them. It's so cute!

Vlog Channel + Taking a BREAK 2017

Hey guys. For those of you who don't know about my family vlog channel, here it is. I haven't had much of a chance to vlog lately because life's been some kind of hectic, but if you haven't caught up on the old vlogs, now's your chance!

CI FAMILY VLOG CHANNEL

As far as the hair channel, I will be taking a little break from video editing and filming. I am having complete burnout, and again, life's been, well, life. So I'll be taking a break, but will be back. I'm not going to disappear into the shadows like a lot of YouTubers who take breaks and don't show back up for 6 months. LOL

So please bear with me. Stay subscribed for more updates on the upcoming hair oils and other things. ;)

Girly Protective Styles For Winter 2017

Good evening, curly mamas!

I've been working on doing a lot more style videos than normal just to see if I can reach a bigger audience on YouTube... because let's be real. Having only 1,000 subbies after almost 4 years of hard work on this channel does a lot of damage to my... well, self-gratification. 
I know that my videos are good and well put together; however, I don't have the capital to put money into YT... and I'm definitely not getting any in return right now. Sigh... suggestions, anyone?
Anyway, here are the last two videos showing the styles that I've been doing on my girls this winter so far. 




I hope you guys enjoy them! Nothing spectacular, just styles that makes me stay out of their hair for up to two weeks. A lot of times, the flyaways and frizz don't allow the style to last for two weeks, or ever one full week for that matter, but I don't really have a choice lately. I have a lot going on in life at the moment, and I need to keep their hair pinned up as much as possible.
I've been loving that Cantu Natural Line... if I'm not using that particular Cantu product, then it's the Cantu Kids hair care line. I love both of them. Very moisturizing, minimal build-up.
I don't do many styles on them with a million and one hair ties and hair bows, because frankly, we don't go out much! There's no point in doing fancy things all the time when it'll be a hassle to take down at night so they won't sleep in hair bubbles/knockers/whatever you'd like to call them. I simply can't deal with all that. Haha!
So lots of braids, cornbraids, and flat twists is what I've been doing lately. And I'm very proud of them. If you like the videos, please like, subscribe, and share! I appreciate it. :)

Four Year Old With 27 Inches of NATURAL HAIR!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Here is my latest video where I do a length check on Symari, which I haven't ever done. Not formally measuring with measuring tape. Her hair is longer than I thought, beating Syriah's record of how long hers was when SHE was four. That's because with Syriah, I was new to learning natural hair care and it was in recovery mode, but Symari's has never been 'damaged'.

So it has had time to grow to it's fullest potential. It's flourishing. Her hair is much finer than her sister's and grows in that traditional V shape that most people's hair grows in. I may straighten it soon to get a definite length check number... if I can get around to it. lol





Someone asked me about my routine for her hair, but it's pretty simple. I may do a video on it soon, but it's pretty simple. Wash and condition once a week with a gentle shampoo ( mostly sulfate free), condition with Tresemme, finger detangle, rinse, oil her scalp with my holy grail oil, and then put it up into a protective style for the week using the most gentle products I can afford. (Cantu, Shea Moisture, Eden Bodyworks) I keep it in braids so it won't get tangled, and sometimes I'll redo the style throughout the week. The style at the end of the video is an example of the kind of styles I'm referring to.

For the new year, there will be more hair videos coming up. I will also do updates on my weight loss journey and all that other fun stuff. I will do better with posting here more often. Stay tuned! ;)
