Which Multi Do you Take?

By Curly Nikki 30 Comments

Hola Chicas! I’m a huge fan of green drinks, but since I’m preggers, I’m taking a prenatal. I researched vitamins the same way I did natural hair, and decided that Rainbow Light One (a food based vitamin– some argue that these are better than the ones that contain minerals and vitamins chemically derived in a lab) would be one of…

Growing to New Lengths

By Curly Nikki No Comments

In the cyber world, there are several concoctions and magical serums floating around that promise to swiftly grow your hair to great lengths. I’m not in the position to review any of them…not even Boundless Tresses, which I used intermittently for 2 weeks.

Vitamins and Minerals

By Curly Nikki 34 Comments

People are always asking me if I take vitamins and mineral supplements to achieve growth. Well, I do. I’m not really into ‘length’ as much as I’m in to BIG HAIR. But obviously, big hair comes with more length. So, I’ve been popping pills since March 2008, and I hate swallowing pills. My dream hair: I love her length, fullness…
