DIY Kinky Twist

So I love braids, twists, and locs! I have never had locs, but they’ve always been so pretty to me especially when they have a splash of color. I have natural hair so I love to experiment with new styles. The great thing about being natural is protective styling! A protective style is usually a style that keep the ends of your hair from damage. I typically use Couture Tresses by BiBi bundles to achieve the best protective style.

Cheers to silly faces! However, this time I chose to install kinky twist. They were initially going to be Havana twist, but I got caught up in a web series and made my parts too small. But fret not, they’re still cute!

1: Fluff, moisturize, and prepare your Afro 2: Install kinky twist with your favorite kinky synthetic hair (I used Cuban Marley Twist) 3: Choose your sealing method (to seal means to make sure the twist don’t unravel) I chose dropping Bantu knots 4: Style.

I hope you all enjoyed the curly, kinky talk! Til Next time

 

Love Always,

CHEF BIBI- How To Sautee Chicken and Veggies

If you’re a mom, like myself, you want to always prepare something that the children will love! Since I’m a no mess kind of mom, I use paper plates so my boys can just toss their plates when they are done. However, today I am just showing you a quick way to sautée your chicken and vegetables to optimize the taste! We were making fajitas so we decided to make our own rub.

Make sure you prep your chicken by cleaning with water and a little lemon juice for freshness. Also, make sure to season chicken thoroughly with adobo, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Make sure you slice your onions and peppers thinly to make presentation prettier. Add about a tablespoon of oil, I used grapeseed, to coat the pan. Add chicken and veggies immediately to the oil and the mixture will cook down. The chicken and vegetables begin to create their own juices bringing all the flavors together. Now if you’re eating fajitas, here is a rub that I came up with that you may enjoy.
