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

Jumbo Flat Twists on Stretched Natural Hair

Well my Up-do style on Curlformers-stretched hair barely lasted one day. I knew this would be the case as the style was just too loose for my short hair, but I was in a hurry for work. No big deal. I just did a swirly part down the middle, grabbed some coconut oil and created… Continue reading Jumbo Flat Twists on Stretched Natural Hair

Weekly Up-do on Curlformer-Stretched Natural Hair

  Another week, another up-do. My Curlformers are getting a good work-out these days. They are the ultimate tool for heat and chemical-free ‘straight’ hair 🙂 I did this style in a hurry so it’s not as neat as I would have liked. This was  meant to be a French Braid but I’m still not… Continue reading Weekly Up-do on Curlformer-Stretched Natural Hair

Natalie Gumede and Artem’s Viennese Waltz

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

Strictly Come Dancing UK – Natalie and Artem’s Cha Cha Cha

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
