Happy new month Naturalistas!! It’s been a while since I posted anything. I have been undergoing some critical life changing experiences. But since it’s a new month and a new year I have decided to come back with full force. I am starting all over again, I would love to reintroduce myself. I like my readers understanding who I am so they can relate well with my posts. My name is Adunade Boluwatife. But I prefer being called Tife Adunade. I am a student (so I’ll be giving a lot of student l...

When i first went natural, every natural girl and their mother was talking about the term "cowash" i was quite confused as to what it meant at first until, they told me it meant conditioner wash. The term never really went down with me because i loved the feeling of clean hair and i was convinced a conditioner couldn't do that so i just stuck with shampooing my hair. So, i stumbled on the picture above a few weeks ago and i was taken aback. I got quite curious so i started to look for any...

Avocado oil, derived from the avocado fruit, boasts some unusual and uniquely healthy properties. Avocado oil is high in vitamin E and unsaturated fats and contains more protein than any other fruit and more potassium than a banana. Avocado oil is extracted from the flesh of the avocado and offers a variety of purported nutritional and medicinal benefits, some of which have been confirmed through scientific research.

Hi lovelies..Hope you all are having an awesome week? :smiley::smiley::smiley::smiley::smiley::smiley: Did you know that the liver has got a lot to do with the hair? YES! A whole lot. The liver is one of the most important organs of the human body which is completely responsible for detoxifying harmful toxins in the body from everything we eat and drink. And of course, it prevents waste products from entering the hair follicles, thereby aiding easy blood and nutrient circulation in t...

That was how I just decided to try giving my hair some curls; hoping that twisting the hair and loosening it after a day or two would give my hair the desired tiny curls. I was less busy, home alone and bored; and I had washed my hair earlier in the morning, so I decided to put the time to use, I generously applied haircream and hair mayonnaise to my hair, then I sat down in front of the mirror and started picking my hair and twisting it in very tiny portions, after some hours I finished...

Morning Thought: Yesterday I was watching a video of Marilyn Mosby speaking about black women; our obsession with PERFECTION and how your perception of the ideal self image ultimately shapes your attitude towards yourself and others. That really really hit home for me because I have always idolized women like my mother, my aunts and all their friends, who effortlessly look very well put together and polished. I never really understood how that image affected me until now - not that they ...

Sooo, here it is.....(I was too lazy to retype the whole thing so i just kinda copied and pasted it...sorry) Okay. For my edges, i try to prevent tight braids/ protective styling and when i do braid, i...

My thought this morning: Through the natural hair journey, you will go through a series of phases. Just like with anything else in life. There are days when I think it will just be easier and look more attractive if I straighten it. And that may be the case. But why? Wearing my natural hair - "the coils", "the texture", is the sexiest thing I have ever done. The way our hair shrinks and those coils coil is beyond flattering...The imperfections are the beauty...The essence is in the swi...

My morning thought comes from the article, Black Women and Identity, where Ruth states "when you can look in the mirror and you can see your natural kinky Afro or locs and it is yours and you can say, 'you know what, I like that' and you know why you have to like it because that's what it is; when you get to the point, that's when you start to see your true beauty..." I finally made it to this point, but there are women around me who still haven't and that is truly the motivation for this...

Hello Fam! I'm back! It’s been a crazy two months. We were going through a political crisis the whole of Dec'16 to Jan'17. But it’s time to come back to what we love, to ourselves again. I missed everyone, really. And how're you all doing? And your natural hair too? Missed all of it! You know, it’s funny, but I had it all planned out when I was making my mini twists in Dec’16, around the 25th, that I would be doing oil treatments weekly, wash every other week, continue my moisturizing ro...

Day 1....Wear Your Hair! Gudmorning! Gudafternun! I woke up today with my high puff still intact from last night (INTACT).. I didn't sleep with anything covering my head. This got me thinking - I wonder if the hype about the satin bonnet is legit? I have to admit, in my year and half wearing my natural hair, I have been using it on and off ... It's funny because my dad bought me a satin Chanel scarf which I couldn't find for years only to see my niece pull it out of her overnight bag ...
