Just a quick one ........ DONT expect that all EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS will make your hair grow down your back in 6-8 weeks when you just did the BC.. Don't fall into FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!!!! Just because someone made a regimen that works for their hair doesn't mean it will work for yours ...DO WHAT  BEST FOR YOUR HAIR. BE PATIENT, TAKE SOME TYPE OF GROWTH AID, WEAR PROTECTIVE STYLES BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY DO YOUR RESEARCH!!! Also remember that HEALTHY HAIR comes from the inside out so EATING HEALTHY an...

The most popular saying for most naturalistas is; the shrinkage is REAL! Inasmuch as shrinkage is an annoying thing for ladies with natural hair, most especially for 4c hair type, it is a sign of healthy hair. How much hair shrinks varies from person to person. I, for one experience this phenomenon in the worst  of ways but i have come to accept how my hair react with H2O. Interestingly, shrinkage allows me the opportunity to switch up my look a little more when i want to rock a fro. So ladie...

It's been a long time I came on here..Hope everyone is doing great? For the past few months I have been quite busy so I haven't really been doing a lot to my hair... I have a thing for headwraps which is called DUKU in Ghana . There are many reasons to wear a headwrap. Here are a few of my personal reasons: ~ It protects my hair from the wind and rain ~ Helps to retain moisture ~ Serves as a protective style for my natural hair on days when I don't feel like touching my hair ~ And it's...

I learned these in the 12th month of my 1 yr and 6 months (after my big chop) natural hair journey. And it wasn't until my 11th month that I got to know I had low porosity hair. What is porosity in hair? Porosity is your hair's ability to absorb moisture. Low porosity hair is usually considered healthy, and is often shiny. This type of hair repels moisture when you try to wet it. Low porosity hair is also prone to build up from protein rich deep conditioning products which can leave it feeling ...

I bought some bentonite clay from @naturalhairavenue on IG and decided to try it out today and I was impressed. I've never seen my curls pop out like that. Jeezz😧 1. I mixed some bentonite clay with water and olive oil in a PLASTIC bowl (DO NOT USE A METAL DISH BECAUSE IT WILL REDUCE IT'S EFFECTIVENESS. USE GLASS OR PLASTIC). That quantity was small so I added more. You can always use Apple Cider Vinegar or green tea instead of water and any other essential oils 2. I loosened my two corn...

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 ...

That just sounds like a scene from a Nigerian movie, but this post is about my hair. Six months after (3 months after transitioning and another 3 months after the big chop). This was actually a very long comment on the picture i posted and Kume said i absolutely had to put it in a blog section. 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 moistur...

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 ...
