My first crochet braids!

So I have finally upgraded my protective styling and stepped into the world of crochet braids. Of course this was looooong overdue, I was just way too attached to my beloved kinky twists. I like kinky twists because I can do them myself. For the crochet braids I need to get someone else to help me…

Is it 2016 already?!

It really has been a terrible year or so for me in terms of blogging, and every time I finally do blog I promise myself that I shall increase my posting frequency and never do. I take all responsibility for slacking! But, in my defence, my VPN sucks (need it to access WordPress) and there’s…

A fro in China

So my fro and I safely arrived in China (Baoding) about 2-3 weeks ago. It’s been an interesting few weeks too, trying to get accustomed to life here and meeting many different people. Before leaving Botswana I of course put my hair in braids again so that I didn’t have to worry about hair during…

My hair lately: of twists, knots and glycerine

And the fro is back! I am really hopeless with braids these days. They never last more than 4 weeks, if I’m lucky I sometimes make it to 6 weeks before I am literally fighting the urge to yank out my braids. I just get so tired of the extensions and start missing my hair….

A break from the kink…

I recently developed an itch for straight hair and decided to scratch that itch this past weekend. I love my kink but I had gotten curious to see how much progress my hair had made since the last time I straightened it with heat, about 2 years ago. I decided to treat myself to a…

My experience with mini twists

I tried something new with the fro and thought I’d share how it went. If you recall, I had braided some kinky twists on my own some time back and after 3/4 weeks I took them out to give fro a break. A week into my break I began gettin tired of fro again. I…

I braided my own hair!

This is a quick update on what my hair is doing right now… Currently I am in kinky twists and I am especially proud of these because I braided them myself! I had gotten a little wary of the fro and needed it to be out of my way for a week or two. My…

New year, new hair goals!

So it’s that time of year again, when we look back at the progress made and set new goals for the coming year. This particular post is of course in relation to my hair. Here’s what I aimed to do last year and the results… Use castor oil religiously to thicken up my hairline and…

Braided up again!

Just a quick update on ma hurr! 🙂 Decided to braid my fro up for the festive season because I don’t want to deal with it while at home and while travelling. I bullied my lovely cousin into braiding long medium to thick black waist length braids which didn’t take us too long.I love these…

Henna and my hair

So a week ago I decided to finally give the henna as a hair dye thing a try again. Using pure henna this time and not a hair dye that has henna as an additional ingredient. You can find pure henna in Indian spice shops, I bought mine at Fruit and Veg city in BBS…

My hair right now and new products!

Since the beginning of summer, I’ve been trying to hide my hair more often because the temperatures currently are just criminally high! A regular day is between 28 and 35°C which can’t be good for the fro. For about 4 weeks I was in chunky afro kinky twists which I absolutely loved. They were low…
