SPOTLIGHT: Almonds

I don’t like nuts unless they’re chocolate covered. I’m a woman of simple tastes. But I learnt very early on in my healthy hair journey that when it comes to oils and nuts, Almond (or more specifically, Sweet Almond) is a super oil. Also, apparently, Almonds aren’t actually nuts? Who knew?!

Holy Grail Update

I’ve been trying to find my Holy Grail products since day one of this journey. I wanted a perfect list of products that make my skin and hair look like they are only being touched by the gold standard. I hadn’t realised at all how hard this would actually be.

Snapshot: What I’m Using – August 2020

I recently bundled in a snapshot of what I’m currently using with my length check from May and it all seemed pretty reasonable. But I don’t know what has happened since, I feel like I’m using every product I have in the house and I just need to get on top of this before I get overwhelmed.

Length Check: 3 Years 9 Months

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!

How have you been styling your hair recently? Honestly, my headwrap collection has been having a grand parade around my house while working from home. But twists, whether big fat ones to just tuck my hair away under a wrap or mini twists as my style to flaunt my fro, they are a natural go to for naturals. Well, they are for me anyway.

Braid Removal: A Pictorial

I can’t even remember when I actually had these particular braids in. But when I was looking through the blog for ideas I came across these photos saved in the gallery. So we are going to just go with that! My hair is currently in mini twists. It’s low maintenance and when I swish my head side to side, my hair comes with me. It’s a nice feeling that people with straight or loose curls most likely take for granted. I have the movement of box braids without the weight and hassle but then again I don’t have the length!…

Growth

Recently, I shared a post about my hair growth, I wasn’t down on myself but I don’t think I was as positive as I could be. I said I was messing this healthy hair journey up. I said I needed to get this right again before it goes too wrong. What I didn’t do was congratulate myself on how far I’ve come! Apologies for looking so miserable above but right now I am feeling good about what’s growing out of my head.
