Unfortunately, during today’s 5 hour downtime, we were not able to finish all planned data center maintenance procedures, and we plan to finish them on March 5th between the hours of 2:00 AM and 7:00 EST, so, there might be additional downtime. Again, sorry for any inconvenience.

My Natural Hair 2007-Present

12/31/09 Year-End UPDATE:
Watch Reniece's New Year's Eve Bun Drop Video
Click here:

My hair is now 100% relaxer-free

Last Relaxer: September 2006
Hair Type 4a
Current Length: Past bra strap (stretched) Shoulder-length (unstretched)
Current Style: Bun
As of Dec 2009, I am 3 years and 3 months relaxer-free

*Currently wearing weaves while growing out hair
*I like sleek, polished looks so I will wear my hair straight 99% of the time and I'm not scared of the heat (for my hair)
*Transitioned for about 9 months before cutting most of the relaxed ends

1/1/10 QUICK NOTE: Yes, I primarily use the pressing comb when I press my hair. However, for this latest update, I used a flat-iron this time :o)
(Many of you have asked so I thought I'd add a little note)

    When wearing a weave, how often to you recommend getting your ends trimmed or dusted?
