Selfcare has lacked a bit of late. Yesterday I went to the beauty shop to get my hair done and today I slipped out to get a pedicure and lunch. My hair has never been this long and healthy in my life. Even after getting a good trim... I can’t believe it. Living here in Colorado the climate is definitely dry but that doesn’t mean no growth. @vicioustresses and I spoke at length about this. When I first started going to her almost 5 years ago, I think my hair was about 3 to 4 inches long from my scalp when straight following my big chop. I rocked weaves by her I think for a good 3 to 4 years several months out of the year. What I realized was low manipulation styles were my jam and my key to retaining length. I’ve continued to carry that on with my signature high bun. The twist outs while cute damaged my hair the most for several reasons. Natural hair is beautiful and needs nurturing.. kinda like relationships! For anyone out there contemplating going natural .... I gotta say... doing that was one of THE BEST decisions I’ve made! The other decision I made was to keep going to the beauty shop. As much as I think I’m a stylist ... I’m not .... in fact, just this week I was reminded of that... I cut a nice chunk of my hair out because I had trouble detangling. It was just another reminder to leave the heavy lifting to the professionals 😂 Nothing like a confident woman💪 Stay strong, you got this!
@mahoganycurls My name is Shuntu. I’ve been praying for celebrities lately and have been drawing prophetic portraits. I wanted to encourage you with what I felt God wanted to say to you. God bless! I saw a rabbit hole by a stump. Underneath the rabbit hole is a room filled with pearls. Those pearls represent beauty. I feel like God is saying that you have buried beauty beneath you and that He wants to release that beauty. 1 Peter 3:3, 4 is a wonderful reminder and call to not let our outer beauty outshine that of our inner beauty. God wants to enhance the inner nature of who you are. A gentle and quiet spirit is about God’s peace and life within you rather than being filled with the hustle and bustle of a busy lifestyle. His desire is to give you a quiet place free of the worries of life. Try not to neglect the gift He longs to give you. In Matthew 11:28, Jesus says, “Come to Me and I will give you rest.” Try not to run yourself ragged by chasing after life’s matters, but first, seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness because He will give all these things to you as you do so.

Regrann from @mahoganycurls - Throwback Thursday then and now edition. The photo on the left is freshly relaxed hair. Lol! My relaxer of choice: Affirm. 🙃 My natural anniversary was 2/15, I cannot believe it has been 9 years already. Wow! If you’re wondering, I am wearing the same top in both photos. 😂😂🙈🙈 #mahoganycurls#naturalhaircommunity#naturalhairjourney#relaxedhair
Today, I gave a friend of our family daughter @_kinky_kurlz some low lights. 💕She’s a natural blonde and she wanted to add some dimension to her hair for the new school year (she’s going to the 9th grade). 💕😌 She’s loving her new look. Oh yeah, she didn’t want her face shown in the before photo 😜... #mahoganycurls#lowlights#backtoschoolhair
This beauty came from Dubai & wanted a curly cut with a wash n go. (Denver is her hometown) Her curls are amazing and shrinkage is real. Her hair is mid back length when it’s fully stretched. 😍😍😍 Swipe to see where she started. #mahoganycurls#naturalhair#washngo
Color play.Who’s ready for autumn? 🍂 It’s not fall yet but we were inspired by fall colors for this transformation. I did a color melt and mixed a few colors together to achieve this vibrant and dimensional look. 😍 I also shaped up her curls. ☺️Swipe to see where she started. #coloradosprings#mahoganycurls#curlygirl#wavygirl#haircolor#pmts
The TWA💕😌 You guys know I did the big chop and rocked a TWA myself so I’ve always had a special place in my heart for short natural hair. This beautiful young lady did the big chop (her dad did it for her💕) and she wanted to know how she could style her hair. I prefer a good moisturizing leave in conditioner and a styler (gel -for additional curl definition). She has tightly coiled hair (type 4) - My recommendations - As I Am cowash, The Mane Choice Detangling Hydration Shampoo & The Mane Choice Revitalize and Refresh Conditioner. Styled: ORS Butter Whipped Leave In Conditioning Creme & a Gel of your choice (optional) Swipe to see where she started. ❤️💕 #mahoganycurls#twa#type4naturals
It is still wash n go season! ☺️ Check out this beautiful & hydrated wash n go (with a dry curly cut) I did on this gorgeous queen. 👑 Swipe to see more. I forgot to take a before photo 🤦🏾♀️ #mahoganycurls#coloradosprings#pmts#naturalhair
🌸💕✨ This is actually my first time straightening my hair since I cut it last year. I decided to smooth it out since I am so busy with school right now. I barely have time to do my wash n gos. (But it’s all good) ☺️ Moving forward I will incorporating more protective styling in my routine. I will keep it like this for a few weeks. ✨Nighttime routine: the old school wrap. ☺️ #mahoganycurls#naturalhair Thank you for the super sweet comments. ❤️💕❤️
Flashback Friday ✨Im still in love with this hot pink color and cut I did last Friday. 💕💕💕 She’s still loving her look too. Her mom sent me a cute photo of her this morning. 😍💕☺️ Swipe to check it out. 💕You can book your next appointment with me by clicking on the link that is located in my Instagram profile.

“Shrinkage for 500, please.” My client has beautiful type 4 hair. She wanted two strand twists on blown out hair. As you can see she has a ton of shrinkage (most of us do 😩. )She doesn’t blow her hair out often because she prefers to wear her hair as is naturally curly. 🙌🏾 PS (She’s also 16 and she’s embracing her curls) ☺️ #mahoganycurls#naturalhaircommunity#shrinkage#coloradosprings#naturalhair
