Kids Hair

Think Of The Children(‘s Hair)

I have three kids, three beautiful kids, three beautiful kids with a lot of hair! I have taken better care of their hair than my own but I haven’t done their gorgeous curls justice. Now that I am on this healthy hair journey for myself, I know that I need to make sure I look after their hair properly because they are too young to do it themselves. It’s frustrating though that they don’t have hair like mine (coarse afro) or their Dad (wavy European type hair) which would mean I could just replicate what either of us does on…

Now I Know My Hair…(cont’d)

Now where was I… So that miracle oil, coconut oil may not actually be a miracle for me with my low porosity follicles. Which is a great shame as I have about 14 jars on top of a cupboard in my house. Oops! So some say it is too heavy for my type of hair but I honestly say I am on the fence about it. I’ve had no ill effects using it, I quite like it, not just how it makes my hair feel but, and this may make me a bit of a freak, I like melting it…

Week 2: My Old Hair Care Routine vs My New Hair Care Routine (Part 1)

As you can see, I’m making some real progress here. It’s crazy that the photos I took to announce my baldness to the world, beautifully taken by my lovely husband, are now out of date. I had that look for such a short amount of time, I’m not even sure if it was worth going THAT short. But it was fun while it lasted. I do not think my hair growth rate is even close to half an inch a month (average for everyone) but we will plod on regardless because I have no other choice. Now I am emerging…

One Week On, Still Bald…Sort Of

I guess there is no going back now! I’m not sure why it has taken me a week to come to that realisation but I’m here now. It’s all still looking a little bare up there but if I run my hand over my head there are short little hairs on every inch of my scalp. You can even see it from a distance, not too far, maybe about 3 feet but there is definitely something there. Apparently, hair grows on average 0.5 inches per month and I’m well on my way…I think. I’m not sure how long it has…

Day One Of The Journey To Tailbone Length Hair (That’s Really Long By The Way)

So it wasn’t all a really weird dream. I did take a razor to my head yesterday and shave all my hair off. Oops! To add insult to injury, today I awoke to the first frost of the year. My cousin did say that I should probably wait to lop it all off until Spring but stubborn me decided to stick to my arbitrary deadline and it is soooooo cold! It has made me question if my goal to have tailbone/ bum length hair is realistic and whether I can stay motivated for the 5 years plus that it will…

Who Needs Hair Anyway?

.Hi. Yay to my first post!! Woo! So that girl above is me. First picture is me with my fro before I took the plunge. The 2nd and 3rd photo are what happened next. You can even see the shine off my perfectly bald head, that’s how smooth I went. It’s quite an odd sensation doing a wet shave on your head. After months of psyching myself up for this it’s done. I am not disappointed, I am feeling myself right now. Right now, I feel good, but I was worried I might end up looking like Sisqo. You know,…
