2 YEARS NATURAL!!!

Hi guys,
    Its been 2 years since I decided to grow my hair out natural, can you believe that? It seems just like yesterday to me. I am really happy with my decision and I only wish I had made it earlier,who knows how huge my fro would have been if I had started 4 years ago. Oh well, its better late than never. During these past 2 years I have had my ups and downs. The ups for me include the joy I feel each time its length check day and I see that my hair has grown a couple of cms past the last time. I also love my hair when I fro it out and random people I meet almost hi5 me. The best up is the self reliance I now have. I wash, deep condition and style my hair myself 99.9% of the time. No more pain and no more raw boned hands digging into my scalp at the salon. The downs have been few and far in between and for that I am thankful. I have learnt so much and grown with my hair, it almost seems we are buddies. Weird but true.  Here are my progress pictures:

TODAY- 24 MONTHS POST BC!

 It has been an incredibly rewarding journey. All the products and techniques I used and the countless hours (and mb) I have spent watching those YouTube videos brought results. These pictures prove that our hair can grow, if only we put in the effort. I am determined to step up and do all I can to nourish and grow this mane of mine and who knows? Maybe I might hit waist length some day.

I wish you all health, length and curls that pop (-;

    1. It's growing dear. Probably breaking off at the ends. Step up your deep conditioning and moisturising and I'm sure you'll see a difference.

    5. Hello Rita, you hair will always grow back. To prevent breakage you need to moisturise and seal and avoid heavy manipulation. Click on this link to go to my article on hair breakage : http://darkchildlovethyhair.blogspot.com/2013/10/beating-hair-breakage.html?m=1

    1. Thanks a lot dear. You do not need to go all crazy on your hair just find a regimen and stick to it. I only wash my hair once a month but that's because I cowash in between and I also use apple cider vinegar to combat itchiness. Just listen to your hair. If its dirty, wash it. If it feels dry, moisturise it etc. To begin, get yourself a moisturising conditioner, a leave-in conditioner, a shampoo and some Shea butter or any other oil you can seal with. Infact I think I will do a post for newbie naturals in the near future. And please don't worry, you'll be a guru in no time. To answer your last question, I make my hair but I choose styles I can comfortably do myself.

  6. Awesome. I am still debating whether or not to big chop my hair by June 19th which is my 1 year transition to natural anniversary. I have about 8 inches of natural growth but i havent had hair that short in years.

    1. Hiya pink. Do what you know works for you. Short hair is hard to manage esp when it comes to styling so if you don't have the time or patience you can transition as long as you want. Just know that your curls are awesome whether long or short . Thanks for stopping by (:

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 …
