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 […]

Get Yourself Some Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment NOW! (Video)

Sorry I haven’t updated in so long. I’ve found myself with very little time for luxuries like updating my blog in the last few weeks. But I managed to shoot a quick video today. Don’t laugh at me please, I’m not a born performer so the exhibitionism that is video creation does not come easy […]

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 […]

Noire Essence Shampoo & Conditioner Review – So Disappointed

Recently I have come to the conclusion that I would prefer not to do product reviews for money. I recently had a company contact me wanting to send me their products for review in which they pitched me with the standard offering of getting products for free. Like most people, I’m a busy person. Life, […]

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 […]

An Update On My Sister Tasha’s Hair

After almost a year today I finally spoke to my girl Emily Cotton Top on the phone today. It’s weird how you can work with someone for so long and have no idea how they sound. Accent doesn’t travel well over blogs so I was oddly tickled to hear her American accent, naturally everyone sounds […]

Is Consistency Really All That Important Or Do We Naturals Just Stumble Into Long Hair?

I have been enjoying watching some classic naptural85 & haircrush videos this week which got me thinking about how I approached my hhj in the beginning. I’m not a flake. Or at least I make a concerted effort not to be. Yet sometimes I feel that I change my mind so often it surely cant […]

Up Close And Personal With My Shrunken Naked Hair

A reader Melanie wrote to me a few days ago asking to see my naked hair with no products and fully shrunken. Of course I was taken aback by this request and was fully intending to respond saying “No [insert string of profanities here] way!” After all I’ve already shown you guys my wet unadorned […]

I Tried, I Really Did, But I Just Prefer My Hair Curly

When I was in my early 20’s I used to get approached my men once, maybe twice daily. I think most women tend to have a similar record, it’s the way of the world I suppose. As I’ve got older and a lot of people my age started pairing off and living together or getting […]
