I got my act together and now my hair is back to its normal length 🙂 This style is very quick and easy to do. I did two jumbo flat twists going upwards and made my usual fringe/pomp at the front and voila! An elegant natural hair style suitable for all occasions.
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. Also I got a bit lazy and, dare I say it, a little bored with my hair. This laziness led to dry split ends, so I had to trim about 1 inch… Continue reading New Year, Same Natural Hair Updo
I was quite lazy with my hair over Christmas and New Year. It was just in 2 Jumbo twists, which I moisturized and redid every week. Now that I’m back at work it’s back to my natural hair up-do 🙂
Well at it’s Christmas I thought I’d let my out a little bit 🙂

This is because they ‘tame’ my locks, look stylish and do not require the use of heat and… Continue reading 12 Months of Protective Styles on Natural Hair
I regularly deep condition my hair with a moisturizing conditioner but I don’t often do a protein treatment.

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
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.
Curlformers. Every time I use them I envision bouncy glossy ringlets. But then I remember that my hair is too short. And Afro-textured. For me Curlformers simply stretch my hair and make it easier to style than if it was in its natural kinky state. The style below is a good example. I have created… Continue reading Straight-ish Hair with Curlformers
