My Natural Hair Update

I have been rocking my natural hair for some years now and I am loving it. It took some time to fully transition from my chemical damaged hair to my natural hair now. I didn’t go down the big chop route  and that is partly why it took forever to transition. But I am happy with how my hair is currently looking. There was some hair breakage earlier in the year, thanks to a crotchet braids hairstyle I had on that wasn’t right for my hair. But it is slowly growing back to how it was prior to that and I am hoping to see a significant hair growth before the end of the year. I have so many hairstyles I need to try. I just need my hair to grow some more.

My greatest hair muse is my beautiful daughter. Her hair is hair goals for me. She was born with amazing hair and I have found it very easy to nurture and maintain for her. Her hair reminds me of how my hair was when I was her age. It was natural, soft, long and chemical free. Her hair is one of the reasons why I decided to be free from all hair chemicals and damaging hair weaves. I have never seen any hair so beautiful. This photo does not do her hair justice.

If I could go back in time, I would take better care of my hair. But since I can’t, I have to ensure I right my hair wrongs. So far, it has been a journey I would never forget. It just confirms the saying that whatever you nurture grows and stays healthy.

My hair routine is very simple. I don’t do much with it or to it. I usually have my hair in cornrows and I wear wigs. Sometimes I have my hair braided in big weaves or crotchet braids, which I have now stopped doing because crotchet braids damaged my hair. I think the big fat needles used put too much pressure on the hair. So although it is a quick way to have your hair done, it is not the best for my hair type. For now, I am sticking to simple corn rows style. They suit me and mine. And that is what I have on at the moment.

When it comes to hair products, I use a couple of Cantu products. I also use SheaMoisture products. And you can click on the links to read my reviews on the hair products.

Fashion & Style Reviews LOLA Makeup

For those who do not know, I am a LOLA makeup Blogger. So every month, you would be reading a review of a LOLA product. This month I bring to you LOLA Makeup Universal Pressed Powder and a Strobbing Brush.

 

Universal Pressed Powder

 

I have used both products for weeks now, and I have only good things to say about them. These products have changed my makeup game for the better.

 

An ultra-soft powder that magically transforms skin to look poreless & pixel perfect. LOLA creates the ultimate finish to your makeup look, without the use of a photo filter.

Simply buff universal Powder into the skin after applying the rest of your makeup and your finished make-up look will appear poreless, wrinkle free and smooth without camera flash!
