I’m taking the braids down

Ok, just a week after braiding my hair up I have had it! Every time I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror I get annoyed. I knew that I shouldn’t have done these extensions when I just wasn’t feeling it. Next time I will follow my intuition. I just want them outta my […]

Glance Braid Water Wave

  I completed the braids finally. You know, I don’t think I will braid my hair with extensions again. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t say that because I am exhausted but because throughout the process of braiding, I kept wishing I was braiding just my own hair. When I was about half way through, […]

Keeping my hair straight while I work out, an impossibility?

So this week I tried the straight hair look. The first day was fabulous, hair swinging everywhere! However, I’m trying to lose some weight (arent we all!) and as soon as I worked out, my roots reverted instantly. Aveda moisture block is usually fab for stopping reversion in it’s tracks in humid a atmosphere but […]
