Product Review: Crème of Nature with Argan Oil from Morocco Perfect Edges

October 16, 2017

Welcome back to the blog!! I’m not really an edge control person or at least I never was and it’s probably because I have a perfectly shaped hairline. My edges are not so violent and I didn’t have the baby hair thing going on for me until I found Crème of Nature with Argan Oil from Morocco Perfect Edges. My love for Crème of Nature is why I purchased this product…

4 Crochet Braiding Tutorials That Should Help

March 22, 2015

Yesterday, I talked about how I installed and maintain my marley twists. Before I did that, I had been visiting YouTube a lot lately mostly because I’d been searching for the perfect crochet braiding tutorial. I can’t really say that I’ve gotten what I want but a few of them have been more than helpful and I thought I should share. For those of you that have been looking for…


How I maintain my marley twists

March 21, 2015

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…


Rollersets = silky texlaxed hair

January 28, 2015

Before I started my hair journey, I always used to have silky hair. However, it was very ‘light’. I started my hair journey in the quest for thickness which has improved but in my opinion still haven’t fully attained. I think that the only things that have helped my fine hair strands so far have been: The JBCO family; and Intentionally under-processing my hair (otherwise called ‘texlaxing’). Well, back to…


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…


Hair techniques I tested in 2014 {Dr Fomsky}

January 2, 2015

Blow drying: I enjoyed learning how to blow dry my hair using a method I saw on YouTube by Reniece TV. I will only do this occasionally because it takes me too long. Ain’t nobody got time for long styling!   Flat ironing: I did this once last year and it left my hair feeling smooth. I think I will do this a bit more often this year (with enough protection…


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…
