I like to say that I've been natural my entire life.
From age 13 (when I was in 2nd form at school), the only thing my mother would allow is a press comb. This was done maybe once a month or even less frequently. Until then, my hair had never been "processed" in any way, shape or form.
A month after my college graduation in 2008, I jumped on the dreadlocks train. It felt liberating to just do what ever I wanted with my…

Hello lovelies! So as some of you might know from my Blog and YouTube Channel, I do not use heat on my hair. I have never been good with a flat iron or hair dryer (back in my relaxed hair days) so I am pretty sure I would fry my hair (not an option!) But I do look at different ways to stretch my hair WITHOUT heat and Braid-Outs seem to do a decent job. I generally stretch my hair as a "prep" to Twist, Bantu-Knot etc but I do sometimes wear my hair in a fluffed out Braid-Out like in the…Continue

I have always probably like most, felt like my fro was not as attractive as when my hair was straight, or when I had weave and still to this day at times I have doubts, I've tried being natural several times and often give into "the weave" but I feel so motivated this time and I have been on a journey to be content with myself as a whole and that includes my hair in its natural state! So I'm using this site as a little fall back for when I have the natural doubts...because lord knows I will…Continue
