Product re-up and mini update

I know it’s late but Happy new year y’all! So I know I had said I’d gone Chinese hair product wise (see here) but then during a random Taobao (known as China’s Ebay) browsing session I came across a shampoo and conditioner set I could not say no to! Inecto Naturals Argan shampoo and conditioner….

My current hair products (+trip to the Great Wall of China)

Finally did a second product re-up and I think I have found a combination that I am happy with that doesn’t burden my wallet too much. For shampoo and conditioner, I have gone Chinese permanently and stick to a brand called 源自然 or From Nature. Shampoo: Natural honely locust aloe shampoo All the ingredients are…

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…

Fro feature: Resty Ninsiima

Time to meet Resty Ninsiima! I was supposed to put this interview up ages ago but school, life and laziness got in the way. I did this interview last year just before September. Resty’s hair is longer than most here, eye catching and always very neat so I had to talk to her about it. She…

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…

Fro Feature: Shaun Dinard

I’m back!!!! Finally forced myself to sit and resuscitate this beloved blog of mine. I return bearing gifts though! Time to meet another Baoding natural. Like my most recent fro feature Ricardo, she’s also an island native, hailing from Antigua which is located in the West Indies. She has one of the most vibrant afro’s…

Product re-up

So I have finally found some cheap Chinese hair products to replace my now finished shampoo and conditioner. I decided to put my limited knowledge of the language to use and search for some natural Chinese hair products online (i.e no parabens, sulphates etc). I had intended to buy American natural products which can easily…

Boys with fro’s: Meet Ricardo

I really don’t know why this has taken me so long but I have finally gotten around to interviewing my fellow naturals here at my university (Hebei University in Baoding, China). My first feature is of my friend Kado/Ricardo who sports a very eye catching fro which is usually what everyone first notices about him….

A fro in China: My Winter holiday

So I thought I could expand my content a little and do a few posts about my life in China aside from just talking about hair all the time. I do have a general blog (click here) where I delve into that side of things with more detail however there’s no harm on doing little…

Is that your hair??

“那是你的头发吗?(Is that your hair?)” is a question I often get asked when I’m out and about regardless of whether my hair is braided or not. Having a fro in China is undoubtedly unique and makes one stand out quite a bit. Among the sea of straight and usually long jet black hair, a coily cotton…

Black girl in China….again.

I am leaving…on a jet plane…I don’t know when I’ll be back again… Ok, so that last part is a lie, I know when I’ll be back. I am going to the east yet again. I am going to China and will be there studying for 3 years. I’m not the only one, nor am…
