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)….

It’s been a while since I’ve updated you on my Hairlista’s Healthy Ends Challenge. It’s 10 weeks in and I’m doing OK. On some fronts (daily moisturizing) I could be doing a lot better, but I’m making a valiant effort. My kinky twists are six weeks old. It’s been six weeks since I’ve played with…

Missing my hair

I knew this was going to happen. I was counting down the days until I got my hair twisted in my first protective style of the fall/winter season… but now, I’m totally missing my hair. If I want my hair to stay healthy and strong during the cold months, I know that I have to…
