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…

Hair pictures and more!

I never liked wearing my hair in just two strand twists. I just didn’t think it looked good on me and it made me sad because I wanted to wear my hair in this protective style for at least a week before doing a twist out. My scalp is another issue and another post because…

Summer, summer, summer hair!

This summer has been busy — I can’t lie. So, my poor little blog has had to take a back seat to all the other things that have been going on. I’m sure in August or September things will calm down and I’ll be back to blogging more regularly. Not only has this summer been…

Hair purgatory: the dreaded in-between phase

I cut all my relaxed ends off in September 2008 and I’ve been working toward having a head full of thick, glorious healthy kinks and coils. Now, one year and seven months into this natural hair journey and I’ve reached the dreaded in-between phase. My hair is no longer short enough for the cute styles…

Doing the ‘do – Just because

Just because my hair was looking particularly cute today and I don’t have a dang thing to do this cold January night, I’ve decided to post some pictures of my ‘do. You’ve seen this one before — I just added some hair jewellery. The same jewellery that I wore on Tuesday when I was trying…

When a good hair ‘do goes bad… – Part 2

Good morning, y’all! Yesterday, I was in a tizzy trying to figure out what the heck to do with my hair. I had rocked a cute twisted/flat twisted updo for about a week and the style had reached its limit. I was a hot, fuzzy mess. Some folks here and on Facebook thought I should…

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: Twist out

Hey all! I haven’t been doing twist outs since I had my kinky twists put in in October. Last week, I wore my accidental protective style: two strand twists put into bantu knots and worn curly. On Friday evening, I decided to unravel my twists. Boy, lemme tell you! My hair looked HAWT! And it’s…

Doing the do’: Party hair

Last night, the Hubby, a bunch of friends and I decided to brave the -18C weather and head to midtown Toronto for a party for one of my sister-in-law’s friends, who happens to be a party promoter. I must admit, his parties are the most fun and safe and least pretentious that I’ve been to….

The accidental protective hair ‘do

I had been looking forward all last week to trying a new style. I was going to use the banding technique to stretch out my kinks before I did a two-strand twist style. I know I can’t explain the technique as well as some other folks online, so I’m just going to leave it to…
