I probably started writing a post and then ran out of things to say or got distracted. I can’t believe how distracting adulting is, I am literally minutes away from spiraling into another existential crisis, as if the 36500 crises that I have already had this year are not enough. I have been postponing showing up here just because my thoughts are not settled on what I should talk about, my body is breaking down and I need to pack and cook. Yoh! I could use a bit of help in adulting, because this is not it.
Length retention is perhaps one of the biggest questions asked in the Natural hair world. Although a lot of people seem to have and unhealthy obsession with length, it still remains a good way to monitor your hairs health and progress. I prepared this pictorial that I shared on my Instagram stories… And thought I should share it here… While these tips are certainly not exhaustive, they offer a quick background on some healthy hair practices that I have talked about before on this blog.
Let us talk about hair for a minute…just because it has been a while since we talked about it. This post here is exactly what I mean by it has been a while…. except today, I illustrate it in a video. Aaaannnnddd……suuuurrrppprriiissee I take you to the bathroom lol!!
I am one of those people who believe that everyone needs to take care of themselves. Apart from diet and environmental factors, I think our daily habits and products we expose ourselves to plays a huge role in our lifestyle challenges in later years of our lives… Thus, I cannot fully over emphasize the need to be aware of each and every aspect of our lives no matter how tiny the detail. I often get remarks from guys who see my blog and are like, “what does hair have to do with us?” In this post we talk about how guys can take care of their hair as well. You can already guess that I already and still am encouraging B to really take care of himself as well.
As a mini-reunion plot (read as making up for away time), B and I decided to have a swimming date. I like how swimmimg is so therapeutic! Nothing beats enjoying your exercise… ( I absolutely disliked running and jogs as I was growing up). So you are burning fat, staying healthy and having fun. Sadly, we had to postpone because rain and so I thought I’d share my preparation process for a swim.
About a month ago, I noticed my hair was shedding more than usual and I was wondering what was wrong. Usually these instances usually throw me into some sort of panic lol. It is not the first time it has happened and I bet lots of us experience this. So I put together ways I combat my excess breakage and I hope this will be helpful for you.
So henna is amazing yea? You have read a lot about it and you really want to try it out. But you don’t want to colour your hair. This may just be your solution… a henna gloss. I had wanted to try henna for a while after reading about its amazing benefits from the natural hair community. In fact my first deep conditioner promised me henna benefits so I was really excited about it.(I also want it back. Anyone knows where I can find this?)
I shared with you my hair regimen a while back and I’m thinking the next question is how do you then personalize your hair journey and regimen? When I started out on this journey the biggest favour I did for myself was to keep my eyes open and of course my brain. I read all that I could read and sifted through loads of information. I still read a lot much more than I did then. I found some five “mantras” that really helped me get a foothold of this journey and I shall share with you
