Hi luvs,

I know I’ve been MIA for a while…September has just been a tough month for me.  A lot has been going on in my personal life.  For those of you who follow me on instagram and facebook, you’ve probably seen  some of my posts.

I had some major renovations going on in my home and then right in the middle of that I had to travel to California (By the way I’m still here and will be here for a month or two)…


But none of that compares to something that has completely shaken my world…

A very close friend of mine, my childhood BFF has lost her battle with cancer. She was only 32. She left a 1 year old baby girl.

Words can not even begin to describe how I’m feeling right now… I am HEARTBROKEN. I have no words….

All I can say is please keep her, her baby girl and family in prayers.

This weekend October 4th also marks 11 years since my father passed along…

These two events intertwining just make this time of the year that much harder for me…

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.

I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.

I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.

All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is a keepsake from which I’ll never part.

God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart.

Because of this I feel like the world is conspiring for me to take a break…but I’ll be right back…

If you’ve left me messages here on the blog, email, facebook or youtube and I haven’t responded please be patient with me…I will take the next couple of days/weeks to slowly catch up with everything….

When I’m ready I will come back to blogging and youtube….

If you want to keep up with me I will be a little active on my instagram page.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,

Love Always,

Hi luvs,

Hope you’ve been having a great week so far, the weekend is coming YAY!!!…You know what else I’m excited about? Another Max Hydration Feature :) Today I’d like to introduce Rosa, Enjoy :)

How long have you been natural?


I have been natural since Dec 2012.  That was when I did my 2nd big chop.


Why did you decide to go natural and what has been your experience so far?


The reason why I went natural was because I grew tired of my relaxer and it was damaging my hair.  I saw a few women with natural hair and thought it was so beautiful.  It wasn’t until I saw my sister go natural that I decided to do the same.  The first time I did it was in 2005.  I assumed that my hair texture would be like my sisters, but it wasn’t.  At that time, there was very little information on natural hair. I had no idea what I was doing and became frustrated with my hair.  I ended up getting a texturizer.


The second time I big chopped I was more prepared for the journey.  I wanted to see my hair’s true potential.  Social media helped me tremendously.


What is your hair type texture, length etc?


My hair is black, thick, type 4, low porosity, and 2 inches past my collar bone, and tightly coiled.




What are some of your struggles (if any) being natural before MHM?


Before MHM, my hair was dry and lacked definition.  I also had a difficult time styling my hair.


How did you find out about MHM and why did you decide to give it a try?


The funny thing is I started doing this method and didn’t even know it lol!  I saw a Youtube vlogger doing some of the steps.  I liked her results so I decided to research it.  That is how I ran across the term MHM.


How long have you been doing MHM?


About a year.


What are your experiences with MHM so far?


From day one, I’ve been pleased with the results!  My coils have more moisture, definition and are really soft.  It is inexpensive and easy to follow.  My hair loves it :)




Your views/experiences and maybe other people’s view of your hair before and after MHM.


People, regardless of gender or race, love it.  I notice that I get more compliments and questions about my hair after doing the MHM.  “How did you get your hair like that? or What is your nationality?” are some of the questions I’m frequently asked.  Some people even assume I went to the salon or had a chemical treatment.  I receive so many question that a woman suggested that I launch my Youtube channel, which I did.


Some advice to anyone who is considering trying it for the first time or to other naturals in general.


I would recommend doing your research.  Understand that what works for one natural may not work for the other.  Don’t be afraid to try new things.  There is a plethora of information on your hair type.  Learn as much as you can about YOUR hair, do what works for you and enjoy the ride :)


My Youtube channel is Rosal 180.  I post quick, easy to follow tutorials on how to style and maintain Type 4 hair.  Please watch and subscribe :) And last but not least, make sure to check out Youtubers documenting their journey with the Max Hydration Method!


Thank you Rosa for sharing your journey with MHMIt’s great to see someone who has been doing the principles of the regimen for about a year now. This is very insightful for the rest of us :)
