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

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

Week 30 Style – Flat Twist up-do

It’s still hot and sunny in London, which makes me want to do better things that wash and deep-condition my hair, so I just re-did by style from last week. I undid each of flat-twist, re-moisturised, sealed, then re-flat-twisted. My hair wasn’t dirty, just dry so I felt ok about that. This style is slightly… Continue reading Week 30 Style – Flat Twist up-do

Week 29 Style – Flat-twists into Jumbo Flat-twist Updo

It’s another classic! My hair absolutely loves this style! I’ve been flirting with the jumbo flat twists recently but I don’t think my hair is long enough to keep that style for more than 3 days. My hair just gets frizzy, dry and itchy. But with a flat-twist updo my hair simply behaves itself leaving… Continue reading Week 29 Style – Flat-twists into Jumbo Flat-twist Updo

Week 27 Style – Triple Jumbo Flat-Twist Updo

I don’t pretend to come up with a unique hair style for every week as there is much more to life. This is more or less my Week 11 style but without the flat twists going from the centre outwards. I was too tired for perfection. It’s important for naturalistas to have several go-to styles… Continue reading Week 27 Style – Triple Jumbo Flat-Twist Updo

Week 26 – Protective Up-do Style

I’ve had a few weeks experimenting with looser protective styles and I found that after 3 or 4 days my hair felt dry and itchy. Also it’s been quite humid in London these last few weeks so that hasn’t helped matters. So I’ve returned to what I know and that’s flat twist up-dos! This style… Continue reading Week 26 – Protective Up-do Style
