I wanted to try something a little different. I have never done space buns before, but I love how they look.
Even as a natural newbie, I know that a Wash & Go is a staple in the curly hair world. Now I have done a few bantu-outs and single strand twists outs but never let my hair flourish with its true curl.
Inspired by a Yara Shahidi look I saw on Blackish, I decided to do a natural protective sleek bun style for the week. The twist was that it had a single cornrow down the centre and a jewel adorned to make it look a little more stylish…
Bentonite clay has been used for years as a powerful ingredient to care for the skin and the hair. I tried making a deep conditioner hair mask filled with olive oil, bentonite clay and Rosemary essential oil. I put a plastic cap over my hair for about 1 hour to really let it soak in.
Its been a while since I’ve bantu-out my hair so I decided to do so. I finally got my hands on the infamous EcoStyler and decided to give it a try. I also got the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Leave In Conditioner and wanted to try my hand at a nice twist out.
Today I managed to put my stretched hair in a high bun (no flat-iron necessary) using a bun maker. Attention ladies and gents, my hair is long enough to FIT over a bun maker.
I did a length check at the end of March. I periodically cut my ends off because I am trying to level out my hair. Once I get everywhere to 7 inches then I will focus on growing length. But for night now, my focus is fullness, even-ness and health.
After4 days rocking a wash and go (co-washing twice), I decided to finish off the last two days before wash day with a loose high bun.
Hydration Vs. Moisture: What is The Difference?
In the simplest terms, the purpose of a hydrator is to bind water to the skin. On the other hand, the purpose of a moisturizer is to prevent water from leaving.
The night before going to Africa, I decided to try something different with my hair. I have never had any sort of colour in my hair (besides brown of course) so I decided to attach grey extensions to my hair while I was traveling in Africa...
