Rambling About Haircare

I have Type 4 Hair. I used to think 4C but now I’m not so sure. What I would say is that I have the 4 and maybe a little 3, I don’t know. I’m not sure. I don’t really care.

Braids 2021: April Ombre

I recently let you know that I’ve been living my best life in chunky twists but there’s nothing better than when you get into a funk than to change your hair. And as someone who wears box braids fairly regularly, it’s a great non-damaging-ish way to quickly change up your look. And if it’s purple…even better!

DIY Hair Oil: Naptural85 Inspired

When I started my journey, I was all for DIYing. I had very high aspirations for how much I was going to make for myself. There were going to be shampoos, conditioners, leave ins, deep conditioners, gels. I was going to do it all.

A Pictorial: Clay Wash Day

I only use Bentonite Clay every 4 weeks to cleanse my hair but I genuinely look forward to that particular wash day. If Bentonite was a person, I would gush about them all day. I was stocking up on clay and I was trying to make an order up to a certain amount on the Anita Grant website and so I decided to try out the Rhassoul Deep Condish and Double Cream as well.  And when it was time to bring the Bentonite out again, I thought, why not pair it with the Rhassoul and see what happens?

Wash Day Notes: Wash And Go?

I’ve been battling the detangling demons with my kids for a while, specifically with my eldest. We’ve found our groove, moving from protective style to protective style. It’s been great. She’s even taking some responsibility for her hair. It seems that I’m clearly heavy handed because she brushes her hair just fine by herself. Not as thorough as me but she’s only 8. HOWEVER…

Skincare But Make It Cheap(er)!

When I was about 17 or 18, I said to myself, “when I turn 30, I’m going to start buying Oil of Ulay, so I stay looking young.” I will always remember it as Ulay, you will not sway me. I thought that thirty would be a good time to start caring about how old my skin looked. Because when you’re 18, 30 seems old. When I actually turned 30, I did not do this.
