Three years and six months! Woo! I should really be happier but in all honesty, I’m disappointed in myself.
So the blog has taken aback seat to my procrastinating ways. I feel like I’m not making much progress but luckily you guys have been sticking with and still reading. Thank you very much! I haven’t got my newsletter sorted yet (but you can subscribe here, please don’t hold your breath until it comes…), I haven’t actually written a post in like a month but thankfully my hair is till growing strong.
First of all I’m not ironing my bedsheets, secondly, here’s what I’m using…
Here’s a quick snapshot of what I’m currently using on my hair and skin: HAIR Leave In Water or Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner Oil KTC Coconut Oil or Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil Cream Cantu Coconut Curling Cream or Anita Grant Double Cream Moisture Balance Leave In Curl Conditioner or Revlon Realistic Black Seed Oil Strengthening Butter Cream (my hair is feeling super soft at the moment, I put it down to these creams but would say the Anita Grant is the winner although a little pricey for the size). Styler n/a Prepoo KTC Coconut Oil Shampoo…
Here’s a quick snapshot of what I’m currently using on my hair and skin: HAIR Leave In Water Only Oil Castor Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Tea Tree and Peppermint Essential Oil, Vitamin E Oil Cream Nothing really as my hair is in braids but when it wasn’t I was using Cantu Coconut Curling Cream Styler n/a Prepoo Afro Hair Solutions Scalp Reviver Mask Shampoo Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Conditioning Shampoo + Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea All Natural Cleansing CoWash Deep Conditioner EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea All Natural Hair Masque SKIN Face Wash Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial…
As I said on Instagram, I look tired in this photo but this is with a filter on. With a filter on, ladies and gentlemen! This is real life and real life is under eye bags, dull skin and a general sense of malaise. But ooo, doesn’t my hair look good!
I finally feel like I’m starting to make some real progress with my kiddos…after just one successful wash day. Yes, we have had a detangling breakthrough. I know, I know, I’m getting ahead of myself but it could well be the sign of things to come. Minimal tears. Minimal knots. Maximum curly mum happiness! I really think we’ve cracked it this time!
I can’t speak for everyone but I blog because it makes me happy. I do not make a penny from this. In fact, at times, it’s been quite an expensive hobby with the add ons to the website, security features, domain registrations, buying products to test and what not. But no matter what, I keep writing.
It’s been well over a year since I chose to go bald. I have hit the milestone of 1 whole year and 3 months. And I’m not bored of this whole healthy hair blogging thing. That’s a long time. But also really short in the context of me being on a journey to tailbone length hair. And yes, I am still aiming for that ridiculous and lofty goal. I’m expecting to get there by 2025, give or take a year. I’d be happy for it to happen at some point this millennia if I’m honest.
Honestly, there are a million reasons why I chose to blog rather than vlog and videos like this make me wonder why anybody does?! [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOt3RROF_cU[/youtube] We need them so this doesn’t happen to us! #vloggersoftheworld I take my invisible hat off to you!
