I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos of late. A lot! I think I may be slightly obsessed. The amount of natural hair and skincare content is overwhelming and amazing at the same time. Such things as how other people have grown their type 4 hair long. Turmeric Masks for hyperpigmentation. Reviews of products Instagram shoves down your throat like – Nuud deodorant and EZ Detangler brushes. Plus, general YouTube tea and drama. I’ve been watching so much but also taking in a fair bit of knowledge too. It is actually mostly educational…what I watch anyway. However, all of…
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. But the thing I like the most about twists is that you can make a second hairstyle from them – The Twist Out. I haven’t yet mastered it but it’s definitely a work in progress that…
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.
Pictures sure can be deceiving because my hair looks sooo long here. Look at the reach! The reach!
I’ve been at this hair journey for 27 months now. Twenty-Seven whole months! It feels like such a long time but it’s gone so fast, it feels like no time at all.
And we’re in the final stretch of styles I’m never going to try but I’m going to try to try them. You get what I’m saying, right? Have you had a chance to try any of the styles from part 1 or part 2 yet? I haven’t but there’s a whole year ahead…to not try them.
There aren’t enough days in the year to try out all these styles but a girl can dream, eh? Now where was I after part 1 last week? Well, showing you some awesome styles that you could give a go during this great year ahead. And it will be great! Can it be worse than last year? Maybe, don’t answer that!
I always looked at people with curly hair like my kids have and thought, damn, they’ve got it easy. Detangling with those loose curls is a breeze compared to my coarse, Brillo pad hair. My mother was the first person to make the Brillo pad comment and it has stuck. I am scarred.
It feels like an age since I did my little Head Wraps project. But it was only the end of April, early May. How time flies! And how many ways I’ve worn my wraps since.
I was bald 2 years ago. Not short hair. Not an iddy biddy chop. It was all gone. I was truly one with my scalp. For about 48 hours until the hair started to grow back. Who knew?! I was actually a little disappointed that the bald phase was so short. But here I am wishing my hair was shorter or longer. What is wrong with people? We’re never happy with what we have!
