3 Impressive Ways to Use Aloe Vera on Natural Hair

Hey Friends!! As you know, I have 4C hair and it’s extremely difficult for me to find products which give me hydration and retain moisture.

Next step was to … Continue reading 3 Impressive Ways to Use Aloe Vera on Natural Hair

Protective Style + Hair Update

Hey Guys!

I’ve really been delaying this post for quite some time. Truth is, I’ve just been lazy and not in the mood to write. However, I’m forcing myself to get it done because “discipline“. If you’re an OG (original) follower you would have seen that I had a strict schedule of posting on Sundays & Wednesdays. Somehow, that changed and I can barely post once a week. Nonetheless, what’s been up with my hair?

I may have mentioned before how much of a task my hair is to deal with. It’s been even harder to retain moisture especially living in a tropical environment. During the summer I decided to make my load easier by doing a protective style, so I tried out faux locs for the first time. After taking them out I still wasn’t in the mood to deal with my hair so, a week later it was time for another protective style!

Protective Style

For this protective style I decided on Bob Braids. The longer braids usually keep me hot, and it’s difficult to tie up for sleeping/showering. I got this style from Pinterest, but it’s also quite popular on IG from a girl who does faux locs. Originally I wanted to incorporate grey/silver hair in my braids, as well as purple rubber bands on the ends. However, I wasn’t sure how “professional” it would have been in a work setting. I was also scheduled to travel for work the following week. Continue reading “Protective Style + Hair Update”

My Hair, My Rules

Having natural hair in this century may just be the most difficult or annoying thing ever, when it’s really supposed to be the opposite. You’d think with all the new age Black Girl Magic and promotion of Blackness that people around you would be more supportive.

NOPE.

Well I can’t throw everyone under the bus, but it’s almost like the majority still has a problem with black girls being natural. Actually, let me rephrase that – there’s a problem with black girls being natural with a hair texture different from loose bouncy curls. Yup, I think that’s it. Whereas my coworker would get praised for having her hair out in all its curly glory, they’d look on me and ask if I don’t like combing my hair.

I don’t think people realize how much their words can affect a person. I don’t think they think at all. You know the saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” It’s a lie. No matter how tough you think you are words can affect you somehow.

Rule No. 1 – Constantly preaching negativity about one’s hair is not the way to go.
