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.
I recently reviewed the EDEN BodyWorks Coconut and Shea CoWash and Masque. One of the hero ingredients is obviously Coconut Oil. And any new or old naturalista knows that for a lot of us, Coconut Oil is an essential ingredient. Now while I liked it in the EDEN BodyWorks, me and Coconut Oil have fallen out. It’s gone from Holy Grail to holy fail. Yes I did just say that!
LINK TO THE VIDEO There aren’t that many black people in alternative music. We almost always get pigeonholed into hip hop, RnB, reggae etc. and as much as I love all those styles and that was what I was brought up on, I love most styles of music. I can’t quite get with Trance or Death Metal but pretty much everything in between I can appreciate for what it is.
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!
New year, new you, new hair! Why not?
It was a hard year, physically, emotionally, politically. What can I say, it was a tough one for a lot of us. And I’m glad it’s over.
LINK TO THE VIDEO This is actually one of my favourite Rihanna songs. I don’t really every remember it coming out or being big like some of her other songs but the video in particular gets me every time.
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’s funny when I look at my kids, I find it hard to see any resemblance. It’s something, that if I’m completely honest, I struggle with. Most parents look like their kids. But I can’t see myself in them at all. That’s not completely true, there are fleeting moments when I see it. If I hadn’t birthed them myself, I don’t think I’d believe those gorgeous little monsters were mine. So when my daughter comes to me and says she wants colour in her hair like Mummy, how could I say no?
