Seriously? DO NOT GET IT TWISTED!!! This is one baaaaad chick. I love her poise and I love her presence. She exudes confidence, and is quite the fashionista. Oweee that BIG HAIR right there is a perfect combination of curl definition and fullness. Indeed, very delightful like; #haircrush!! She was recently interviewed in Jet Magazine’s October 2011 issue.
In the article she states the following about her BIG HAIR: “I’m Diana Ross’s child…big hair is what I come from” On achieving BIG HAIR and the gorgeous curls: “You gotta respect the curls,” she says. “I work for them. I can’t tell them what to do.”
Yes M’am, say that!!! Per the interview Ms. Ross is considering a book and line of hair products for natural hair. Best believe we are ’bout it ’bout it lawd! Peep Ms. Ross and her BIG HAIR in the new sitcom Reed Between The Lines on BET every Tuesday at 10p/9p cst. Great show with professional role models and even more hairspirations.

Oweee!! Can’t stop! We wont stop! Straight celebrating our 5k FB Fans mark! And we’re having some crazah giveaways for our BBH Fam:) Happy to advise that Pooters Diapers (PD) is partnering with us for a frodorable Giveway featuring 2 newborn cloth diapers and 1 newborn diaper cover (a $30 value)! EEEK! That’s right, you can keep your itty-witty-bitty BIG HAIR natural from top to BOTTOM lawd!! This lil combo right here is enough to get you started!! First, a little something about Pooters Diapers and its founder Mommy Majaliwa:
I am a wife and stay-at-home mom of two boys. My ‘green’ career began 5 years ago when my husband and I launched the first-ever recycling porter service in the DFW area for multi-family dwellings and businesses (DeBass Recycling). When I first started cloth diapering a year ago, I naturally pursued it for ‘green’ reasons. As I got into it though, I discovered other benefits to cloth diapering beyond the environmental aspect. For example, while cloth diapers are better for the environment, they are also better for your baby and your budget. ….
Determined to not only make our planet a greener place to live, but to help parents do what is best for their baby and their budget, I launched Pooters…..Pooters diapers are simple, trim, easy-to-use cloth diapers made only of quality organic bamboo and hemp materials to make them naturally antibacterial and wonderfully absorbent.
The beginnings of this business started as an idea while Susan Lowry, owner, was camping/RVing. She saw colorful twisted wind spinners on many RVs and thought, “Gee. That sure would look cute in the hair.” Of course she was right…..they do look pretty awesome in the hair. And that was the start of Sidewinder Hairholders.
Located in El Dorado Hills, California, Sidewinder is dedicated to providing you with a unique, fun, colorful hairholder at an afforable price to use when you style girls’ hair. Think of us as the hair beads and barrette alternative.
NOTE BEAUTIFUL COLORS TO CHOOSE FROM!!!!

Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Tiffany and her sweet little angel Troi-Anisse. Now this baby is a supacutie. Golly I could smoosh her cheek to cheek all day!!! We had the opportunity to “chat” down with Mommy Tiffany to get the real deal on that ever so precious coif. Well, let’s get to it shall we?
BBH: What is your hair washing routine?
I wash Troi-Anisse’s -17months (pronounced Troy) hair every 2 weeks [BBH: Owee that name!]. This works for us. If I wash weekly, her hair seems to become very dry. We use Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and Conditioner. I actually let the conditioner sit on her hair with a plastic cap for no less than an hour. After this process, I apply the Shea Moisture Organic Curl & Style Hair Milk Coconut & Hibiscus and the Curl Enhancing Smoothie generously. Her hair requires lots of product. Next I seal with coconut oil. Then comes our style of choice….puffs, 2 stranded twist, or the tried and true wash’n’go afro. [BBH: Ding Ding Ding!! You just said the magic word!!]
As a piggy back to last week’s Follow Up Product Review (featuring CARA B Naturally), I wanted to show you another fun style we created. This one was inspired by Precious Curls Breast Cancer Awareness Style posted last month. Quite simple actually. Take 2 front side ponies up and away, criss cross applesauce, loopty loop around a high ponytail and secure with an ouchless band. Separate the high ponytail into a few medium to large twists and intertwine those together and secure with an ouchless band or pins. Viola! Go’head and let that ‘do do what it do,while you do what you gotta do!! Jeah! This was a quick restyle for chuch (yes, I said “chuch” not “church”, lol!). BTW, we used CARA B’s Hair Mist and Daily Moisturizer (which also doubles as a Leave-In Conditioner) for this restyle (related BBH reviews here and here.
Has anyone else noticed that she likes to hold up 1 finger as if she’s making a point? What is THAT?!? LOL!
‘Til next time…
Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday with their BBH’s! We had a great weekend. Saturday we hung out with friends at the Harvest Festival and ended with a little fun at the mall. Sunday we were a bit ‘sick and shut in’ and yesterday we hit up a few houses in our good friend’s neighborhood (shout out to Uncle Calvin!). BBH was quite the Queen Bee and naturally commanded everyone’s attention. Her costume was an Old Navy find, $15 (1/2 off original price) for the dress, antennae and wand…
But ohhhhh we didn’t stop there, mm-mmhh! I decided a crown would be more fitting for BBH and built one into the antennae headband using a couple pieces of sparkly foam sheets, felt and $1 gems from Michaels. Lets take a closer look shall we?
I also added gems to her bee wand and a made her a beehive bag for treats using a leftover Michaels craft tote from her birthday party last year (post coming forthwith), felt for the beehive, ribbon for bee trail detail and $1 gemstone bumblebee. SURE you can have a closer look!
Then we set that badboy off with her “two-weeks-away-from-being-too-small” gold shoes from Target. Whew! So glad they still fit. Add those altogether with a little imagination and fabric glue, and what do ya get? A “SPARK-E-LY BEE PRINCESS” per BBH:) JEAH! Now that’s what’s up!!!! She certainly had her fun and I enjoyed customizing her accessories. Now ya’ll know I was tempted to try Happy Girl Hair‘s “Busy Bee” style (see our Busy Bee Hairspiration post here), but life happened and we did not have much time or energy to play around with it. Oh but it will be done, TRUST! Anywho, here are a few pics over the weekend. We had two styles, BIG HAIR and buns. We simply fluffed out her dry hair twists for BIG HAIR…
Then twisted large twists together for the buns, securing them with a rubberband. Apologies there are no “good pics” for this but you can see them in some of our evening shots (and the busted up wings!!):
