French Roll on Natural Hair

The flat twists were fun but they were not really ‘professional-looking’, which is why I created this French Roll. A sort of French Roll anyway. As my hair is short it’s more of a tuck and roll updo. It turned out ok but next time I’ll twist my hair over night so that I’ll have… Continue reading French Roll on Natural Hair

Casual Weekend Jumbo Twists

This was meant to be two jumbo flat twists, but my hair wasn’t  properly stretched  and therefore I couldn’t ‘catch’ it very well. So I grabbed my rat tail comb and started to make swirly partings. I don’t like plating my hair straight down as it doesn’t suit my long face. Swirly larger partings add… Continue reading Casual Weekend Jumbo Twists

Hair Comb Bun Up-do

My hair had been protected in finger coils for a few weeks so I decided to set it free. After washing and deep-conditioning I put it in two stand twists over night to allow for some stretch. I  used two medium sized hair combs on either side then loosely flat-twisted and tucked in my loose… Continue reading Hair Comb Bun Up-do

Finger Coils into Updo

I’ve always wanted to try finger coils but have never had the patience, but as I had an empty diary I decided to set myself the coil challenge! If you’ve never tried finger coils before then I should forewarn you that this is an all-day event. My hair is hair is short and not very… Continue reading Finger Coils into Updo

Straight-ish Hair with Curlformers

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

Week 34 – Clarify, Deep Condition and Up-do

Recently I’ve been lazy with my hair regimen. Sometimes I must admit this natural hair lark does get tiresome. I hadn’t washed my hair in a couple of weeks and it was beginning to show. My scalp was flaky, my hair had a lot of build-up and was generally dry and dull. I knew it… Continue reading Week 34 – Clarify, Deep Condition and Up-do

Twisted flat twist up-do

I didn’t have time to wash my hair so I just re-did last week’s style. The hair in the centre was parted and flat twisted on both sides, then twisted in the middle and tucked in at the bottom. This style wasn’t my original plan but it will do for a few days. I will… Continue reading Twisted flat twist up-do

Week 32 – Signature flat-twist up-do

Everyone should have a signature hairstyle and as you know, mine is the flat-twist up-do.  I always think about leaving the middle ‘out’ and curly but I hate doing my hair daily, so instead I just tuck my hair away. In these pics you can see close-ups of my hair texture, which I class as… Continue reading Week 32 – Signature flat-twist up-do
