How I Earn A Living As A Full Time Blogger

I don’t do these kind of posts often, as you know I like to keep my blog mostly about hair or perhaps some of my random ramblings. But I’ve had a few questions from some of you asking how I got started doing what I do and how you can do the same. Not everyone […]

Kids Natural Hairstyles – How Jasmine Has Been Wearing Her Hair

A few of you ladies have asked me how I style Jasmines hair regularly. Well truthfully the reggie that I have for her is so simple it’s laughable. I wash her hair every week or every 2 weeks, depending on time constraints. I usually wash it while she is in the bath for simplicity and […]

Springtime Break In Amsterdam

Before I even get started can I just qualify my absence by saying that I’ve been mad busy over the last few months. Who knew that being a blogger/enterpreneur (yes I think of myself as one of those now) could take so much time away from you. There’s simply isn’t enough time in the day! […]

Back To BSL – 4 Inches Cut Off

So I finally did it! I mentioned in a few previous posts that I’d had enough of waist length and the hassle that comes along with caring for hair at that length so I decided to not just trim my hair this time round but do a real cut (for me anyway). Ok it’s not […]

Breaking My Silence – Why I Have Been Away For So Long

Yes it’s been a hot minute since I wrote anything here. I hate being morbid, in fact I specifically force myself to be cheerful even in my darkest hours, I mean how bad can things really get? Well for me and my family they did a few weeks ago when I lost my Daddy after […]

“Wash Day” While Bunning, Witch Hazel & An Imporomptu Length Check

This weekend has officially marked my 4th week bunning in a row without washing my hair. I should be totally grossed out right now but seriously I’m not. My hair having been cooped up in a bun all this time still smells of my last conditioner/moisturizers and my scalp is only now starting to get […]

Inversion Method Results Part 2

Don’t have much to say for myself this week so I will let the video do the talking….

The Inversion Method Results! (Video)

Ok I know you have all been waiting with baited breath (not really) to find out if my hair grew or not. Well before we get into all that, let me reiterate what I did. For my oil I used my strengthening oil mix because I usually have that to hand anyway and I couldn’t […]

I Am Skeptical But I Am Trying The Inversion Method – 1 Inch In 7 days

Some of you may know my misadventures with hair growth supplements so needless to say, I keep a healthy distance from any hair growth techniques that include popping pills. But I’m not adverse to trying other methods of increased hair growth. Growth hacking if you will. This is the first of a two part video […]

Finger Detangling Vs Protective Styling For Natural Hair Length Retention

We will be taking Jasmine to Disneyland Paris in September, just over a week before she starts school. When we attended the school open day earlier in the summer Jasi was in a bad mood so she decided that she hated school and refused to play with the other kids. Sigh. I’m really hoping that […]

New Mini Stash, A Beach Day And I Am So Done With Natural Hair Shows

Do you get nervous when a bunch of tattooed men in motorcycles ride by slowly while you are stationary in your car? You know the urban cliche that white people sitting in their cars immediately lock their doors on seeing black people approaching? Well I get the same overwhelming urge for self preservation anywhere near […]

It’s Not The Thickest, The Curliest, The Kinkiest Or The Longest. But I Love It!

This week Petra posted an excellent article about falling in love with your natural hair. One I enjoyed reading every bit as much as I enjoyed editing it. She made some excellent points and the one that grabbed me more than anything was the one about accepting that you won’t always be able to show […]
