MUST HAVE NATURAL HAIR ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR TRAVELS

Hey kinks whats up ya'll happy happy Tuesday, I am really trying my hardest to stick to the blogging schedule and i am getting there.

So those of you that know me personally, know that I have been on travels for the past month and a half and it is some sort difficult maintaining a hair schedule at this time so in today's post i will be sharing with you some needed travel essentials that I use during this time to give my hair the most I can and share my travel kit pack.



WIDE TOOTH IRON AFRO COMB:  On a normal and a regular I do not like combing my hair, aside from it causing too much tension to my hair I just generally don't like the whole feel and process. As much as I have tried so hard to avoid combing, I use this wide tooth comb if I must. so this is an important must have if you are travelling or preparing to travel.


SMALL SPRAY BOTTLE:
It will be very hard to carry along your big spray bottle, so getting a small 'finger spray' bottle will be very helpful for yo…

TIPS TO GETTING A SOFTER 4 TYPE HAIR

Hey kinks what's up y'all Happy weekend!

So in today's post I will be sharing with you ways in which you can work with a 'coax' hair or a 4b hair type.

P.S this wasn't the original post that was scheduled to go up today,  but the questions about how I got my hair to be soft was more than 10 in just a short period that I have been out of the house.

If you have a 4b hair type you will be needing these things to get your hair to Co operate:

WATER: This is your best friend if you have a thicker and stronger type of hair. Water restores your hair's pH level,  moisturises your hair and make your hair softer in  general. I advice you  put water into a tiny spray bottle and just carry it along with you and randomly spray your hair during the day.
Now I have met a couple of people who try to be extra but using Alkaline water,  rose water,  aloe vera water etc etc... All these waters are good but if you can't afford them don't stress yourself out!  Just use …

MY OPINION ON CO WASHING

Hey kinks whats up? how is everyone doing today? HAPPY NEW MONTH! and i pray that everything God has in store of you will come to you in this new month, go fort and shine and prosper IN JESUS NAME...

So unto the post, co wash, my opinion on co washing... first of all for the benefit of those that do not know what co washing is, lets explain what it is.
co washing is replacing your shampoo with a conditioner, so instead of using a shampoo to wash your hair you use a conditioner. Most people do this every other week or once a week depending on their routine.

what is my opinion on co washing? If you are a reader of my blog you, you would know that my blog cater to the needs of the 4c/b hair type cos that is what is on my hair and i can only speak for this type of hair.
Time and time again i have admonished us to study our hair and know what works best for YOUR hair and how to get, and retain length. it is not because every youtuber is doing it that does not mean it is going to work for y…

LIFE LESSONS MY HAIR HAS TAUGHT ME

Hey Kinks what's up y'all happy Thursday, sorry this post is coming to you late in the night been a crazy day...

So my hair has been inspiring my life lately and I decided to make this post about the inspiration I have been getting from it...


SHRINKAGE: this is one of the greatest love hate relationship almost every naturalista have...  Shrinkage have taught me never to underestimate any one or any situation... Cos the length You See is not always the length it is... Treat everyone as though they are on equal length or will be one day... 


Drying up when exposed for too long: Just like your hair will dry up when it has been exposed for a long time to air, so your life can dry up when it is exposed to things or people that are toxic to your life and health.. Put your life up in a bun sometimes and tuck it away..  


Constant need for moisturising: What you water will grow... What you suffocate or stifle will die.. Just as your hair need steps to proper moisturising so does your life…
