Braid-out and Twist-out: a comparison

Today, I’m excited to share with you a side by side of a braid-out and a twist-out. Yes, it has been a while since I shared a hairblog. I believe the last one was when I wore my bantu knots in Dakar about a year ago. That aside, with quarantine I decided to keep myself busy and try something new! For reference, in a previous video, I showed you how I make my own aloe vera juice/gel. After this video, I definitely wanted to test the aloe vera and try out a braid-out AND a twist-out. Honestly, I actually love BOTH! Also, it has been a while since I updated you on my hair. Let’s get into comparing two of the most popular natural hairstyles, shall we?!

Black n’Curly: Natural Hair event in Dakar

For the first time, I went to a natural hair event orgainized by Black n’Curly in Senegal! How exciting?! As many of you know, I am natural. Also, I find it important that black women get more educated about their hair. Furthermore, naturals should also contribute to the representation of black women and girls. Also, children should not suffer due to ignorance, in terms of perms, no edges and forever having a tiny ponytail lol. All in all, I definitely wanted to see how many naturals would come, and exchange with them. Just to let them know that I’m here too! Let’s get into this Black n’Curly hair event! (more…)

Natural Hair Routine

Hi Beauties!

A while back (October 2014) I made some pics to show you guys my Natural hair wash routine. However, my laptop crashed, and I thought I lost the pics, but I FOUND THEM! Thankfully. So, I will still share my routine with you guys, just take notice that these pics were made in the beginning of November. I got boxbraids at the end of August, right  before I left Senegal this summer. One of my cousins, Awa, did them for me and they were pretty small, which is why they lasted so long ;). So anyways, this is a picture of me with my fresh box braids. I took the braids out after rocking them for a solid two months and decided to take pics in between :). (more…)

X-mas Hair

Hi guys!

Hope everyone enjoyed Christmas and was able to spend it with their loved-ones. As promised, I will share my x-mas hair!

First of all, my hair was previously straightened with the Beautiful Textures Texture Manageability System. I just used the Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner to wash and moisturize my hair. Afterwards, I blowdried and straightened as stated in the directions. When my hair was freshly straightened, I started to part my hair and make bantu knots. Because my hair was straight, I used bobby pins to secure each bantu knot.
