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!
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.

Well, now I know that I will NEVER … Continue reading Repairing Heat Damage on Type 4 Hair
Happy New Year once again. Towards the end of last year I added a new tab on the blog for Natural Hair. I decided to share with you my trials and errors that I go through with my hair in order to inspire others and gain feedback from you guys which may assist me. As it’s a new year I’m starting out with a natural hair tag which would give you a little introduction on my natural hair journey. I’m also not going to tag anyone so feel free to participate if you have natural hair!
Let’s get into it.
Tell us about your hair texture ~
My hair is thick and kinky, or at least it was before I decided to straighten it and end up getting heat damage (post coming soon). If I had to use the hair chart I’d say 4C because my curls are extra tight. Continue reading “Natural Hair Tag”
*round of applause* *drum rolls* Please cue the EXTRANESS. If you asked me two years ago if I’d ever go natural the answer would have probably been NOPE, but look at me now! Natural and loving it! I may not love it everyday, but as I mentioned before it’s all a learning process. On this day a year ago, I did the big chop which … Continue reading 1 Year Type 4 Natural Hair Journey
