Natural Hair Wash Day & Shrinkage

Natural hair wash day is not to be done in a rush, and definitely not when one is tired as I was. I washed and deeped conditioned my hair as usual, but I left my deep conditioner on for longer than my usual 30 minutes, more closer to one hour, which resulted in my hair… Continue reading Natural Hair Wash Day & Shrinkage

New Year, Same Natural Hair Updo

Hello, I  haven’t blogged for a while. This is mainly because I’ve been wearing my signature style, sometimes with heat, and sometimes without.

Casual Braid-Out

I wasn’t in the mood for too much braiding so I blow-dried my hair. Before blow-drying I used some Keracare Leave-in Conditioner as my heat-protectant. This stuff is brilliant! It left my hair soft and stretched without any brittleness. I then made 9 big plaits and sealed the ends with coconut oil. The following morning… Continue reading Casual Braid-Out

Back to my Flat-Twist Up-do

  I’ve had fun playing with my Curlformers these past few weeks, but they are time consuming and very uncomfortable to sleep in despite what some people may say. So what to do? A flat twist up-do of course!  I want my hair to be out of sight and out of mind for a week… Continue reading Back to my Flat-Twist Up-do

Everyday Natural Hair Up-do

This is a favourite up-do style which I wore this week. It consists of a French Roll at the back, two flat twists at the sides and  a mini pompadour at the front. I blow-dried my hair to create this style but I made sure to use A LOT of heat-protectant beforehand. It’s perfect if… Continue reading Everyday Natural Hair Up-do
