How To Style Your Short Relaxed Hair
October 21, 2016

I met LolaOJ briefly at the registration stand of Beauty Africa Expo. Two things stood out for me; her flawless makeup and her signature short hair. She’s one of those people who tempts me to have short hair. So, when I saw this tutorial for her signature style, I knew I had to share for my relaxed ladies out there. Here’s what she said, I get a lot of questions…


Styling Adventures: The Updo

June 28, 2016

  I just realized that I haven’t talked about this updo which is easily one of my best styles till date. I wore this for Naturals In The City 14 which took place in March and I definitely got compliments. Just recently, someone asked me how I achieved this style and it occurred to me that I never really talked about it so I just gave her a vague reply….


How To Manage Your Hair In The Rainy Season

June 20, 2016

The rains are here and it’s only right to adjust our regimen to suit the season. As you might have guessed, the rainy season means the humidity and temperature gets relatively high.

Styling Adventures: Loose Twists

May 17, 2016

I’ve been wearing loose twists now for the past two to three months and it has been awesome. The perfect protective style for this unbearable heat.  As the name implies, loose twists are just  two-strand twists twisted loosely. Best thing? It gives the illusion of locs. If I had a dollar for everytime I got asked if it was my hair, I would be able to buy a Shea Moisture product….

So I’m back! A few weeks ago, I installed some marley twists – my first protective style for the year. The idea was to install it through crochet braiding and rock for 6 weeks. Problem was, crochet braiding required more extensions which means more full heavy hair – which I’m not a fan of – and I wasn’t having any of that especially with the unbearable heat. Eventually, instead of…


Styling Adventures: Roll, Tuck and Pin.

January 13, 2015

Towards the end of last year, I began experimenting with more styles rather than my usual afro puff. This time, it was the roll, tuck and pin which has endless variations. I’ve tried two styles so far and it has become a staple because of the effortless ease with which it can be achieved. All you need is a moisturized hair and lots of bobby pins – both long and…


Styling Adventures: Flexi Rod Set on natural hair

November 20, 2014

    For a while now, cornrows have been my go-to protective style. After wash day, I cornrow my hair in two sections for a whole week whilst co-washing and moisturizing in between. On days I have to go out, I just add extensions to my ends in form of ponytails and I’m good to go. For some reasons I got bored and decided to try something new. My flexi-rods…

This is where stretching comes in. As shown in the info graphic, there are 5 ways to stretch natural hair.
