  • Hair & Style with Thaina

                Hey Thaina, have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? Initially it wasn’t a conscious decision. To be honest, my younger self didn’t know that I had options. My hair was “unmanageable, unacceptable and a relaxer was absolutely necessary.” The notion is ridiculous to me now but that was what I thought until 2006. I maintained relatively “healthy” and long relaxed hair but I wanted a change and got a cropped Halle Berry-esqe cut shortly after moving to California. I was picky about who permed my hair so I just grew it out and cut off the relaxed ends. I wasn’t

    H A I R   T A L K with Kelsey     Hey Kelsey, have you worn you hair naturally all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses?     I have not worn my hair natural all my life. I did my big chop in Feb of 2010. The first person who inspired me to return natural was Bree from America’s Next Top Model. I loved her huge curly hair and wanted mine just like hers.   Absolutely love the colours you’ve had in your hair. What’s your no.1 tip for looking after colour treated hair? Thank you so much! My number 1 tip for color treated hair is

      H A I R   T A L K || Geraldine   Have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? I’ve been natural for over 5 years.  I decided to return back to my natural tresses after a weave installation left my hair in a thin and damaged state.  I decided to explore staying natural after I realized that after allowing my hair to recover from the damage, there was no reason why I couldn’t remain without a chemical straightener in my hair     How did family & friends react to this decision? My family accepted my decision to become natural.  They were more shocked

    A little while ago I debuted my first ever ‘w’ word on the blog lol. Since then I’ve been a lot more open to the idea of wigs as a protective style, especially now it’s cold. Wigs make it super easy to look after your hair too, bangs by day – deep condition by night. I consider them stylish hats lol. Back in October I was sent a unit from Evawigs.com - Versatile Yaki Straight Custom Full Lace Human Hair Wig.   Hair info: Hair Length: 16 Inches Hair Density: Medium 100% Baby Hair: Without Lace Material: Swiss Lace Cap Construction: Glueless Full Lace Cap with Stretch Cap Size: Average (you can request a custom cap) Lace Color: Light Brown

        Although I’m a haircare blogger, I’m still on the journey of learning and experimenting myself. Over the past few months things has been sooooo busy for me, so when doing my hair I found blowdrying was a quick and easy way to dry or stretch it. I would pick up the blowdryer without reservation. Months later I’m dealing with the consequences. Over the past couple of months I’ve done a lot of trimming to rid stringy, thin, weak ends. As I mentioned in a previous post, I coloured my hair from root to tip last year. Now I have next to no colour left because of all the trimming I’ve had to do to compensate for the

    twists1

    Beginning of last week I took my weave out, now I’m back to my lovely kinky-curly tresses (yay). When I took the tracks out I found it soooo much easier to wash and condition my hair with the braids still in. This method cut down on my washing time and my hair was as clean as usual. I think I’ll be washing my hair in twists/braids  more often. I only had 8 cornrows in my hair, so I took them down and moisturised each section with Root2Tip’s Moisture Milk and sealed with Beija-Flor Naturals’ Creme Brulee. Once done, I then retwisted my hair. My hair was in twists all of last week, so this weekend I took time out

        Have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? No, I haven’t actually. My mom began relaxing my hair at an early age and I kept up the practice into my early 20′s. To be honest, it was kind of an “accident” that I went natural. Initially, my plan was to start taking better care of my hair since I was experiencing a lot of breakage when it was relaxed. I was browsing hair care on the web and happened to read about stretching the time in between relaxers, so that was my original plan. I figured I would just let the relaxer grow out for
