Bad blogger & hair update

Hi all! I’ve been remiss. It’s been four weeks since my last post. It’s not that I’ve abandoned my blog – not at all – I’ve just been a busy, bad blogger. I guess I did need a break and my hair wasn’t a priority over the last little bit. I needed to get back…

Being kinder to my kinks

A couple of weeks ago, when I was in the middle of my dad being seriously ill, I had to deal with my hair. As I wrote before, the scalp was out of control, so I couldn’t go another two weeks (honestly, I shouldn’t have gone two weeks because my scalp doesn’t roll like that)….

My scalp and stress – not a good combination

Hi all! First of all, my dad is doing really well. He’s walking, talking and cracking jokes… serious jokes about stuff that I didn’t think he would remember. Yay Pops! Seeing that he’s feeling well, I am in a mood to talk hair! Since December 14, I have spent inordinate amounts of time at the…

Product review: Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter

I recently realized that I never did a review on Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter! Seeing that I use it pretty often, I thought that I already shared my experiences with you… obviously not. A couple of months ago when I visited my cousins in Connecticut, I was able to get to a Sephora and…

My regimen: Fall/Winter 2010

Here’s another update on my regimen for fall/winter 2010. Actually, I think my regimen is more to the point – I’ve taken off my product junkie crown and that is totally streamlining the products I’m using. But I will be swapping out some products for the season just because of the frigid Canadian winter. (It’s…

Boo for hair typing!

I’m done with hair typing. It’s a waste of time. I can’t swear that my hair is a 4a, 4b or whatever.  All I know is that I love my hair and it’s growing. Whether it’s 4a with some defined curls or 4b with cottony clouds, what it comes down to is that my hair…

Are we obsessed with length?

My hair is growing…like a weed. And I’m certainly not complaining. In March, I made a vague comment about wanting to be shoulder-length by fall (got to that goal in Spring 2010) and well on my way to armpit-length by spring 2011. Well, guess what? I’m about an inch and a half to armpit length…

Toronto Natural Hair & Beauty show – review

On Sunday, I went to the Toronto Natural Hair & Beauty show with my sister-in-law and my friend. We got to the show just before three p.m. and I was excited. This was my first encounter with a show like this – hundreds of naturalistas in one spot? Wicked! Parking was at a premium (and…

Fall brings back-to-school, cold weather and updates!

Hope everyone who celebrates Labour Day had a great, relaxing long weekend. Now we’re back to the grind – whether you’re in school or at work — saying ‘bye’ to all that summer fun. Although summer is my favourite season and I’m sorry to see it go, fall runs a close second. For those of…

August to August – a year in growth

I was going to do this in September for my second nappyversary, but I’m inspired. Over the past year, I haven’t always been able to see my hair growth. So, sometimes I’ve felt a little discouraged. But I turned a corner this spring — after wearing protective/low maintenance styles — and my hair is growing steadily….
