MY NATURAL HAIR IS FRUSTRATING ME



Hey kinks what's up?  Hope y'all having a great week?...

So I posted this
  picture a couple of days ago and I opened the gate way to more rants from my fellow naturalistas that I have been getting a lot this year..  So I decided to do this blog post.... Here are a few  points to help you with your hair frustrations and I as give the points, I will take you through my hair journey of almost three years (3 in October)


  • WHY DID YOU GO NATURAL? When people complain to me about their hair the question I ask is why did you go natural? Was it because it's a trend?... For me being natural is more than just what is growing on my head.. I wanted to redefine the definition of the world's standard of beauty, the chemicals in the relaxer is very bad and will eventually damage my hair forever (and I didn't want that), I grew into my own and I wanted to nurture what God naturally gave me.. When I made these resolutions my hair frustrated me less..

  • DO YOU STUDY YOUR HAIR? I know most of my followers are of a 4type hair and I share as much routines I do with you as I can, but do you study your hair? Every human is made differently. So study your hair and study the products you use for your hair.. Most brands Carter to OTHER TYPE and not the nappy kinky hair we have.. So basically what works for your hair and what products are you using for it.



  • CONSISTENCY: How consistent are you with your hair care routines and maintenance?... You can't expect to do something once and expect magic to happen.. You have to be consistent with taking care of it.

  • WHAT DO YOU DO FOR GROWTH STIMULATION? Our hair has a high tendency to Shed, high porosity and what not,  so you have to stimulate growth and also find ways to combat shedding and dryness etc that can cause stunted growth.. So always moisturise your hair and find a growth stimulator that works for you.

  • Lastly PATIENCE: I always joke that my hair has taught me patience, you gotta be patient with your hair it's like a baby, every babies milestone is different  the same thing applies to your hair.. So enjoy the process and love it at every stage it's in. 


I hope this post have been helpful?  Please share with me your hair care regimen..

5 TIPS TO HELP REDUCE SPLIT ENDS AND BREAKAGE

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.

3 REASONS WHY YOUR HAIR ISN'T GROWING

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…
