My natural hair in Braidouts…

Hey friends, kwana biyu! like we say up north, ( means two days in hausa, its used when you havent seen someone in a while ) , been a while since my last post eh, i just realised that, and thought to share what l’ve been up to with my hair (still thinking of a name for it), i want to name it because i feel like it is different from me, my hair behaves the way it wants to behave, like its got a mind of its own, almost like a person..and there’s nothing i can do about it! I wake up some days and it’s just plain flat, others it’s vibrant and happy,wants to be touched and played with, and some days just plain ‘ol untameable(bad hair days) lol, those are the days i just put on a scarf and head out not minding who’s staring.Understanding your hair is KEY to NATURAL HAIR GROWTH AND MAINTENANCE.

Presently my hair seems really happy, it’s been washed and conditioned over the weekend and left in braids for two days, decided to take down braids this morning, here are the photos of the braidout.

Luckily for me i had already done a trial on friday last week, but it was more of the chunky braidout cos i didn’t have the time, it was done while my hair was dry, as oppose to semi -wet like the one above,and guess what? the results were quite different, i feel it has something to do with the dry twisting. here’s how it looks….what do you think?

One of the main reasons i chose to blog about my hair was to share my experiences with beautiful ladies interested in grooming their natural hair, by showing them my procceses using myself as an experiment so to speak, i ve only been natural for 14 months this April and as you can see my hair is growing, it looks/is healthy too, how would i know you might ask, well i hope to make a post next time about Healthy Natural Hair for you all to understand and know how/if you growing healthy hair or not, not as an expert oh…just going to do some researching, then we can compare notes if you like.

KK loves, time’s up..talk to you guyz soon , cha cha!!!

Old twists outs=New hairstyle

Hello everyone, welcome to the month of April, how did your 1st day in April go? were you april-fooled? ha..i was so busy i forgot that such a trick exists, l remember it though like it was yesterday how we used to do ”April fool” as kids? ..my time does fly really fast doesn’t it?, and this year seems to be in a rush, cant figure out why, very soon we’ll be in june( Mid-Year) and after that before you say bingo its end of the year again, why am i lamenting? don’t mind me it’s just my usual fussy nature at play, But the truth is i feel like the days are counting really fast, like life ‘s leaving me behind, am i the only one? am thinking here i am cramped up all day in my office, shifting papers when there’s so much going on outside, i feel like there’s so much more i can do and should be doing the earlier i get started the better for me,not getting any younger..sigh* sorry to bother you with my worries, down to the business of the day.

l’d promised to show y’all photos of the two different hairstyles that i would do with my last twist out( check out last posts) well…am pleased to let you know that am fulfilling my promise, below are photos of what i did with my hair on the 2nd & 3rd day of my twistouts..hope you ll like em..

For me it’s not necessary to twists my hair every day,i like to twists only on wash days and try as much as possible to keep the twists for the week , it’s called low manipulation, a way of keeping ”hands out of hair”, less manipulation= less breakage = length retention..these i ve learnt. For the time being (might change it as my hair grows longer) i wash my hair once every week which is usually on Saturdays, ll love to be able to improve it to twice in a week though, However when ever i wash i use my original dudu osun as shampoo, dark and lovely leave-in moisturizer water based, which is good since 4b hair loves moisture, then i usually seal with my homemade shea-butter mix which contains some other oils such as coconut oil, and olive oil.

Friends, I’ve got to go ..break time’s over so I’ll chat with you again tomorrow..cha cha lovelies!
