Disneyland Paris And A Fluffy Braid Out (Video)

I think I’m getting the hang of this video making stuff. I still can’t figure out which area of the camera I’m supposed to be looking at while talking but bear with me, it’s a learning curve. I’m actually a bit late in putting this video up, I actually shot it last week while we […]

And I Used To Think That Color Made Curls Pop!

Ok this is a super quick post. Stupidly I went out shopping with the hubs two days in a row earlier this week and as a result I have a to-do list as long as my arm and 20 emails in my inbox still to look at. And they said blogging for a living was […]

New Way Of Doing A Braid Out And It Starts With Twists

I’ve had an interesting week so far. Spent more money than I’m used to on various necessities (clothes are necessary right?) and made some productive decisions. Because of an appointment that I have on Friday in London we are having to do the 3 hour drive this Thursday and come back on Friday. Then next […]

Embracing Big Hair With Curls Whipped Creme

I recently told y’all about my product junkiesm but rather than try to run away from it, I have decided to embrace it for now. I noticed that I had only 3 jars of conditioner remaining the other day. But I usually have around 8 in stock at home and being down to the last 3, […]

Hair Today: Lovely Twist Out

I don’t often dabble into the world of twist outs. Firstly because they don’t stretch my hair as well as braids and secondly inch for inch, they cause more tangles than braid outs. My hair also doesn’t seem to agree with the torsion twist demanded when creating the style. That could be more to do […]

Hair Today, Failed Wash & Go And Failed Braid Outs

So I’ve had an ‘I hate my hair’ week. Seriously, every day this week was a bad hair day. I’ve gone from one extreme to another. A failed wash and go ( I remember now why I don’t do these), 2 co-washes and 3 braid outs but my hair just didn’t look right. First off […]

Two Wash Days In A Row With A Natural Conditioner

So last week I finally tried the homemade natural conditioner I promised to make. The conditioner consists of flaxeed gel, 4tbsp sunflower oil, 1tbsp shea butter and glycerine. Last week my hair was still braided at the roots so I had a pretty easy wash day. After shampooing thoroughly I deep conditioned with the flax conditioner […]

Mini Braids Reduced To Braided Roots Wash Day

I have been toying with the idea of switching to natural only hair products, I am starting to get suspicious of all these long-name-ingredients on all my hair products. Take Methylisothiazolinone for instance. It shows up in the ingredient list of a gel that I bought today. Wikipedia says that it is a powerful antimicrobial ingredient used in […]

Hair Today, Braid Out Stretched And Defined

I’ve been following a hair regimen now for about 4 1/2 years but even I’m not immune to silly errors. Last night after a stint in my FIR infrared sauna, which was lovely and hot, I pineappled my hair to prevent my hair touching my sweaty face. Unfortunately I went straight into the shower after […]

Shrunken Braid Outs Still Look Great

No surprise I only managed two weeks with the crotchet braids. Actually this time it was less to do with itchy fingers than a dear sister’s birthday party that I was attending yesterday and I had to look great. My sister asked me to do the cake for her and since I was so busy […]

Midweek Impromptu Braid Out

Tuesday night I was obliged to do my hair because I was going somewhere on Wednesday and I didn’t think that a simple bun would cut it. So using no combs on a little bit of Keracare natural textures twist cream I braided my hair in 6 large braids and released the following morning. The […]

Stretched Braid Out With Flat Ironed Roots

Last week I henna’d my hair and it was lovely. I noticed I was getting a bit more breakage during styling than I was accustomed to and the henna stopped that breakage immediately. While some people find that henna makes their hair hard, for me, it makes my hair hard in the sense that it […]
