Hi guys,
    In my last post I told you I was super excited about this update. The reason is simple - my hair grew!!! I love doing length checks because they make me know that my regimen is working and my hair appreciates every kiss and hug I throw its way. Without further ado, here are my 15 months post BC pictures.

If you compare these pictures with the ones from my last update you'll notice that I retained quite a bit of length. I think I had about 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" of growth in most places. Now I can do a low pony tail ;-)

Please ignore the rubber band, I am an Unrepentant sinner :-(
For the first time in ages I felt like using a flat iron to straighten my hair so I could really see how long it has grown, but my fear of heat damage held me back. I do not want to lose even 1 single curl so I had to hold myself back. In my next length check I will use a tape measure just to know in terms of inches what my progress is. This month's length check made me really happy because it feels good to see how your efforts are paying off, I almost cannot wait for November ;-)

Thanks for stopping by...


  1. Congrats on your growth. It really grew fast for 15 months! Cool!!

  2. Whoosh!! Nicee!

  3. Your hair has really grown. I feel you about using heat: I have used a flat iron once this year.

  4. My daughter is chocolate in complexion but has a very brown hair. i have dark long hair and her brothers hair are also very dark. I'm worried coz she wears natural hair but it is brown as in very light in color. Are there natural remedies to make her hair dark and rich in color.

  5. Hi, a natural remedy you can try is an Indigo hair dye over a Henna hair dye. stocks both powders. Click this link to see how it is done :
    Note though that this treatment may loosen the curl pattern over time. You will also need to deep condition your hair more. I hope this helps.

  6. yay! your hair is longer nice

  7. congrats on 15 months post relaxer...I'll be 1 year next month. Super excited

  8. Absolutely amazing.
    Mine's 7months now and rather stunted now that I compare it to yours.
    I absolutely have NO regimen but, that's just cos I unconsciously feel it doesn't matter as it's just a TWA- now I'm honestly reconsidering, how do I even start?

    1. You cant go wrong with deep conditioning every other week and moisturing and sealing as your hair needs it. That way when your Big Ass Fro shows up,all your strands will be lush with curls popping everywhere ;-)

  9. I followed ur DIYs,deepconditioning and all,from last year my hair grew to a very big fro, saloons kept turning me down,laziness set-in, I couldn't continue so I cut it down...Now I'm starting afresh wit a TWA,please guide me through...Where do I start?

  10. Hello Ada, sorry to hear about your experience. Its best to begin with the usual moisturising and sealing. You can also deep condition about once or twice a month. Prepping your hair for the salon is also important. You need to condition and detangle properly before you set out. Not everyone can handle a head full of curls so make it easier for hairdressers by doing some homework. All the best

  11. Ok...def will do better this time.Thank you

  12. CONGRATULATIONS!! You've done awesome. I love your hair :-)

  13. Ur hair really respects u. Uve done well.

    1. LOL @ your hair really respects you. Thanks a lot cindy.

  14. Awww that's a lot of progress!!
    Yay growth!!

  15. This is oh wow! oh wow! oh wow!

  16. Congratulations on your hair. That's super growth. A lot of reward for a lot of hard work

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,
  Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing:

Use the right tool
 Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.

Comb your hair only when it is damp
 Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be. When your hair is damp it can better withstand the force of…

How to create a a sleek faux bun with short natural hair!!!!

Hi people!
   So its been a while since my last post and I apologize. I have been all kinds of busy but I have got something really cool for you all today. I haven't really done any hairstyle posts on this blog  because in my bid to retain length I just cornrow and throw on a wig. I have been doing that for months with the random Afro-puff thrown in once in awhile but this week I just wasn't  in the mood for any of my wigs. I decided to finally do something I have been dying to do: a faux bun!! Its super easy just follow the steps below and you'll be rocking your faux bun in a couple of minutes :-)

                           Preparing my hair

I stretched my hair with my cornrows first. I took out the braids then moisturised and sealed:

 I sectioned my hair into 2 parts. I started from the front section. I added some Ecostyler gel, brushed it lightly with a toothbrush and pulled it into a bun on the top of my head:

 After I was done with the front, I brushed up the back and…


Hi guys,                                                             It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so?
