Blending With Weave Hair Is Too Hard

In this humid weather we are having, blending my hair with the straight weave has been a nightmare. After  a day and  a half my leave out hair had already reverted to a kinky straight look and when my hubby said ‘Oh I can see the difference between your hair and the weave now’ I […]

Straightened the weave

I corrected the weave slightly. I didn’t like the idea of having so much of my hair out so I braided down the sides leaving only the sliver of hair at the top for blending purposes. The weave hair was shedding and seemed to be breaking too so I figured that it was a bit […]

Changed things up again- a new install!

I am vey fickle it seems. Just two weeks after my indi afro, the tangles I was experiencing were driving me nuts. I’m not sure if it was the way I was looking after the hair or maybe just the quality? In any event, I cowashed it every morning and let it air dry without […]

I installed my own weave!

I’ve never been big on weaves (on me that is). I go to BHI or LHFC and see all these beautiful installs and I’ve always thought they either cost a fortune or the upkeep is too much of a hassle. Secretly I always thought that installing a weave was an excuse not too look after […]

Silk (Saran) Wrap Treatment

I’m due to wash my hair tomorrow as per my weekly regimen but as I don’t often straighten my hair and I am really enjoying the  straight look now, I would like to see if I can keep it straight for another week (or maybe just a few more days). However, my hair feels like […]

Hair Straightening Update

I know I said I wouldn’t straighten my hair until next month but I decided on a whim that I would like to have a straight hair week. I washed my hair and deep conditioned with the carmel treatment. After co-washing with a cheapie con in the shower, my hair felt so smooth  I was […]

I Tried Curlformers

I got bored of the individual braids after about 3 weeks! I don’t know why I even bother braiding to be honest. I think I will just look after my own hair as it is just for the sake of consistency. I have been wearing my hair in braid out’s since I took the braids […]

I’ve got relaxed hair envy!

I’ve never made a secret of the fact that I went natural because I was tired of breaking hair (I had terribly overprocessed hair) and not for any noble reason. Now that I am natural, I love my kinky curly fro and wouldn’t change it for anything but from time to time, I stumble upon […]

My new individual braids, and I love them!

After the shenanigans of a couple of weeks ago with taking down the curly braids that I had installed after just 1 week, I thought it would be a good few months before I attempted to braid up again. How wrong I was! My sister wanted her hair braided and I ended up doing her […]

My braid out this week

My hair was  incredibly dry after I took the braids down. Sythetic braids are so hard on your hair right? Anyway, I pampered my hair over two days. Deep conditioned on the first night with my olive oil mayonnaise thingy. That solved the dryness but I felt my hair could do better. The next day […]
