HEY 2015!!!!

Hello guys,
  I know this post is laaate but hey, its better late than never right???  It seems like it was just yesterday I did my welcome to 2014 post. I cannot believe 2015 came so fast! I mean it was January 2014 just a few days ago right? Well 2015 is here so lets get to it. For starters I have absolutely no resolutions this year. Yes you read that right. I mean why do we even bother, when most times by the time February rolls by we have forgotten them all? I made 10 resolutions last year and I did pretty woefully so this year I am not making any.  Take a look at my  resolutions for 2014 hairwise + my end of year results and judge for yourself:

1. Deep condition every week... Failed

2. Alternate between Cowashing  and shampooing each week... Failed

3. No heat will be applied to my hair...Passed

4. Learn how to flat twist my hair...Failed woefully

5. Do a length check only once a month...Passed

6. Keep my hair in protective styles every week till July...Well Pass-failed

7. Experiment with more hairstyles...Passed sorta.

8. Do hot oil treatments at least once a month...Failed so badly it hurts.

9. Prepoo before every wash day...Failed so badly my hair could slap me right now

10.Retain 6 inches by the end of the year...Failed


Its so sad but well, stuff happens. Like you all know I ended 2014 on a sad note. After a good stretch of healthy hair practices I fell asleep and almost ruined my hair in the process. I stopped deep conditioning regularly and didn't even attempt to Prepoo. My hair started breaking like crazy. I did a self trim and I must say it helped a bit. I still see broken pieces but at least its not as bad as it was before. I am still trying to go back to the days of no breakage. 
Blogwise I really hope to do more blogging this year with more content and more hair adventures. I really hope you guys stick around with me. I wish you all lots of growth, health and curls that pop like champagne.

Hugs

KimB

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…

APHOGEE 2 STEP PROTEIN TREATMENT REVIEW

Hi guys,
   I don't know if I have mentioned it before but I have been shedding like crazy for months. I don't know how I still have any hair left on my head. My hair is also breaking and doesn't seem to retain moisture as much as it used to. After a really terrible day of detangling( I use a wide tooth comb now) and I knew I had to get help. I have seen quite a few Instagram testimonials on the Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment so I decided to try it out. Its a hard protein treatment that promises to stop breakage and shedding. I read a few reviews online first then I got right into it.










     STEP ONE: PREPARATION
I thoroughly detangled my hair. I did this because the treatment makes hair very hard so to prevent severe tangling and breakage during the process its best to detangle first.Shampooed with the ORS creamy Aloe shampoo. Its best to shampoo the hair before applying a protein treatment to get the best results.Sectioned my hair into 4 twists to make my hair easier …
