Brooklyn Hair, Confidence and Cocoa Mane Salon

Today, I had the pleasure of going to see Janel of Cocoa Mane salon in Brooklyn for a routine upkeep of my weave du jour, lolll.  This trip was extra special since me and my sister in blog Vanessa (SheSoMajor.com) will be attending a taping of the Anderson Cooper show on Tuesday.  I can not tell you all how pleased I was with the final result.  My hair came out so extraordinarily well, I can’t stop gushing about it in the mirror.  I am certain you all can relate when I say that having a new hair style gives you a fresh perspective on life.

I guess it could be considered vain to go on and on about ones physical appearance, but I am being honest when I say today’s visit to the salon gave me a much needed boost of confidence after a very bad dissolution of a relationship. The worst aspect of going through a sudden breakup is your self esteem taking a plunge.  I guess when I think about it, Janel provided chicken soup for my soul without even saying a word.  She performed her magic with a touch of her flat iron; therefore transforming this coal into a diamond.  The process was pretty standard… a deep washing and conditioning, about an hour under the dryer to ensure my tracks were thoroughly dry, and finally the styling.  I think the difference was the love of hair and care for the finished product that made the difference.  So anyways… of course I took pictures from today’s visit.  We took pictures from all around to give you all a full view of the final product.  As you all can see, my hair is LAID! lollll
