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

Protective Style Natural Hair Up-do

It’s getting too cold for me to bear my scalp with a flat twist up-do so this is the next best thing. I will wear this style for work for the whole of this week. The forecasters have predicted snow this week so I will be wearing my hat with a silk scarf underneath. 🙂

Natalie Gumede & Artem’s Charleston to ‘Bang Bang’

I wasn’t sure if the song would work but it does. It’s very addictive! The live singers sang it brilliantly and deserve much credit. It was also good to… Continue reading Natalie Gumede & Artem’s Charleston to ‘Bang Bang’

Natalie Gumede & Artem Chigvinstev’s Samba

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

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
