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…

When a good hair ‘do goes bad…

I wish I had a picture to show you. Last week, I created a somewhat intricate style for myself. Well, it’s not that intricate, but it did take more time than normal. I have flat twists around my head and then twists that I corkscrew in the middle. Picture it, folks! It was really cute……

Doing the ‘do: Introducing Korina

My twists are out. Woo hoo! Don’t get me wrong – I enjoyed them very much, but I get bored with my hair very quickly. So, I loved my twists for the first few weeks, but by week five, something had to change. I lasted seven weeks – that’s a record for me – and…

Over the past year, I’ve learned some things that have helped me enormously with my hair growth — well, more specifically, hair retention. I’m not one to take pictures of my hair (although I’m starting to) to compare with what it looked like a year ago or a month ago. I am going to begin…

Doing the ‘do: ‘Knot’ impressed

Last week, I decided to try out the flat twists on wet hair. I did it Thursday and when I opened the twists on Friday morning, I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not. As the day went on, a curly ‘fro turned into a tangled, knotted mess… and I was going to the…

A new favourite style???

Last night, I felt like playing around a little with my hair. It was really soft from my protein deep treatment and not looking like how I wanted it to. I had untwisted the six flat twists I had in the front of my hair and the wavy, curly thing it was doing was so…
