Diary of a Single girl (Tessy Abdulrazaq)

Hey Zamundans. ..
Happy new week people!... Diary of a single girl is back yooo.... Telzy is back..  enjoy this one! 

Hello guys! Happy New year! I know i've been MIA for a while but it's not my fault, this after school life is trap. As you know tega and I graduated in October and we've been ushered into the adult world, trust me it's not all that it's made out to be *whew* but we thank God for his infinite mercies. Hope you guys have been great tho? 
So this new year, i'll need y'all to contribute to this single girls column, I want us to talk about things asides being single, just everyday situations that affect us and our struggles as a growing woman, so you can just drop a comment about a topic you'll like me to discuss and i'll do just that..kapish? Thanks
So today, we are going to talk about the main purpose of the column, being lately most of my friends and family have been complaining about being single and tired of waiting for the one, most of them are around my age and others much older. I took a moment and thought about it and asked myself what's the rush? Now, i'm guilty of this same attitude of complaining about being single and waiting for the one but I realised i'm still young, I have a whole life ahead of me to wait for the one. To my older single ladies that are whispering, but there's no time for me o, my friend got married last month, my friend got engaged last week, i'm telling you there's time, God is taking his time to send you the one and he's preparing you for the one and he won't orchestrate your meeting until he feels you are both ready for each other and in this impatience of yours, God is secretly blessing you. I know there's pressure from the society and family members but they are not the ones that going to be in the relationship with you so relax. I didn't realise the existence of this pressure until I graduated and everybody started saying 'your wedding is next o' like aunty and uncle let the rice from my graduation party digest first na before you start thinking about my wedding rice. 
Another thing I realised that when you are impatient about finding bae you end up seeing everybody you meet as potential, every guy that chats you up, you are already thinking of what both of you would be like as a couple, I do it sometimes too and it's bad because you end up loosing potential great friends because when they don't meet up to your potential bae standards you start to ignore them or force what's not meant to be.
The most important of all is to seek God's direction while you are waiting or even when you meet a potential, I learnt this very recently and i'm so glad, when you meet someone, pray about it, seek God's opinion and direction and I promise you,you won't regret it. 
I'm glad to have gotten my mojo back, I sense this year is going to be very great for us all, here's to a wonderful 2015 my fabulous ladies! Please don't forget to say topics you'll like us to discuss in the comment section. 
Love always

Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

Okay so to the post what is a split end?  The end of a hair strand is damaged resulting in the strand separating into two or more fragments.

Hair breakage is more of a problem for naturals than split ends because split ends is as a result of many activities that a TRUE natural try to avoid..

Most naturals really suffer from hair breakage and I used to be a part of the team (even do my hair still breaks it has reduced a lot)

Here are five tips to help you manage hair breakage..

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.


Hey kinks what's up y'all? Happy weekend darlings..

So based on the numerous questions on hair growth, here are three reasons why your hair isn't growing.

YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  

YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way).. There are a lot of DIY's out there but you have to be c…


Hey kinks how are you doing? hope everyone is doing exceptionally well? so today i am going to be sharing with  you ten healthy ways you can manage shrinkage.
Before i start let me just mention it here that  as a 4type hair natural, your hair is going to shrink no matter what you do and it is actually a sign of healthy hair living. So lets get straight into them. STYLES: Some particular hair styles can actually help your shrinking hair life, the best way i like to stretch out my hair is to put it in a Bantu knot, it not only stretches it out but it is also stylish. I do not like applying heat to my hair at all, i try my possible best to stay away from heat application so this is a very efficient way of stretching out my hair.
AFRICAN THREADING TECHNIQUE: This is basically how our mothers wore their hair in the good ole days and it stretches out your hair beautiful..
MAKE SURE THAT YOUR HAIR IS NOT LEFT OUT FOR TOO LONG: Now I am here for the cute twist out and all and other beautiful ha…
