Natalie Gumede is still riding high on Strictly Come Dancing. Last week she danced a beautiful Viennese Waltz and scored two nines and two Tens! Amazing! I’m pleased to see that her natural hair is looking as gorgeous as usual. The show’s stylist put in what looks like green spray into the jumbo braids at… Continue reading Natalie Gumede and Artem’s Viennese Waltz
After admiring my Curlformers Curls I carefully manipulated them into this cute bun. My hair is too short and fine to just wear the curls ‘out’ but this bun makes my hair look neat and elegant. I absolutely love the texture and shine 🙂
I dusted down my Curlformers to do something different with my hair this week. My intention is to use the curls to create a protective style that will last all week. As I’ve written about Curlformers before I won’t waffle on about the process. Instead I will illustrate what I did with pictures. As you… Continue reading Curlformers Curls on Natural Hair
The Beautiful Natalie Gumede is still on Strictly Come Dancing rocking her luscious natural hair. I’m so happy that she hasn’t let the Strictly hairdressers straighten her hair. We all know what some hairdressers are like when they see natural Afro hair. This week Natalie and Artem danced a Samba to ‘Bambaleo’ by the Gypsy… Continue reading Natalie Gumede & Artem Chigvinstev’s Samba
I regularly deep condition my hair with a moisturizing conditioner but I don’t often do a protein treatment. According to natural hair science we’re supposed to use both moisturizing and protein conditioners in order to achieve balanced healthy hair. With this is mind I reached for my pot of Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise. Here’s… Continue reading Product Review – Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise
Whilst I’m still on a Natalie Gumede tip I thought I’d post her cha cha cha routine. This was Natalie’s first dance (we’re in week 4) and in my opinion her best so far. They danced to ‘Rasputin’ by Boney M who also rocked natural hair styles back in the day. I love this performance… Continue reading Strictly Come Dancing UK – Natalie and Artem’s Cha Cha Cha
I’m a BIG fan of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing show (AKA Dancing with the Stars in the USA); I have watched every episode since the show started. Sad I know. So I was delighted when UK actress Natalie Gumede wore her gorgeous long natural hair in an elegant updo. The style she wore was not too dissimilar to Teyonah Paris’ iconic updo, which I think Natalie’s hairdresser drew inspiration from.
Natalie and her Russian dance partner Artem Chigvinsev danced a quickstep to a ‘jazzy’ interpretation of Usher’s ‘Yeah’. I must admit the ‘jazzy’ version takes a bit of getting used to and the outfits were ‘different’, but on the whole their performance was absolutely brilliant!
Strictly Come Dancing attracts an audience of 10 million viewers per show (UK Population 60-65 million) so it’s as mainstream as it gets. I’m just so happy that UK viewers got the chance to admire natural hair in all its versatile glory 🙂
I removed my flat twists to get a few more days of stretched hir 🙂
So I’m really loving my As I Am products as they leave my hair moisturised an bring out my natural texture. I flat twisted the sides and did loose twists in the middle for versatility. Here are the styles I’m rocking this week.
Today I received my latest supply of As I Am Naturally hair products, which I’m very happy about. Those of you in the USA are probably thinking ‘Meh’ but these products are VERY hard to find in the UK. They’ve been out of stock online for months and I really missed them, so naturally I’m… Continue reading Natural Hair Goodies – As I Am Naturally Products
