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 […]

My First Trim For 3 Years!

As you know, I don’t believe in trimming hair every 6 weeks or whatever the recommended advice is these days. Now I’m aware that relaxed hair due to possibly more breakage may have thinner ends may require more regular trims to keep looking good but if you are natural and follow a hhj, I don’t […]

Mid Year Length Check

So we are half way through the year and the time has come for a quick look at my progress so far. As I’ve previsouly stated, I only get 4 inches of hair per year but I’m glad with my progress. My hubby finally told me that I had long hair today. Before this he […]

My First length Check Of The Year – BSL!

How strange, when I first started my journey to long hair I used to drool over length pictures of ladies with BSL hair just praying for the day mine would reach that length. Well today is that day and yet . . . . I still don’t feel like it’s long enough! I mean sure, […]

Review of the kinky straight hair

Ok, after wearing the kinky straight hair for 3 weeks, I am in a position to give a review on it. I have to say firstly, I expected more. When you spend over $100 for a pack of hair, you expect it to be the business. This hair was not, it was very average indeed. […]

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 […]

Ok, I’ve been a bad girl . . .

I have decided not to work out this week. The main reason is that my cardio has become a bit ineffective in the last few weeks so I need to take a week’s break from it to rest and take stock. I will only be doing weight training this week which doesn’t make me sweat […]

I am so close to buying a ghd

  I just want to see what the fuss is about with these straighteners. I hear they get your hair straight and it stays straight for longer. If I could get a weeks wear out of it, bearing in mind that I work out 4 times per week, I will be a happy bunny. Major […]

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 […]
