Love this video with great ideas for wearing scarves..winter is just around the corner 🙂
Every naturalista has had to detangle their beautifully textured tresses… So here are a few tips on the best way to detangle your natural hair in order to cause little or no damage and breakage to your gorgeous strands.
Before we go any further… your hair should always be moisturized with either water (your hair craves this by the way), oil, or conditioner. This will make the whole process easier and minimize friction which is one of the causes of split ends.
Okay now that’s out of the way, before grabbing that comb, run your fingers through your hair to loosen up your hair and just incase you didn’t know your hands are one of the best if not the best tools to use when manipulating your hair… only use your trusty combs if necessary. (less is more)
Tip: When purchasing a comb always look out for the seams on the comb, these can be found on the inner part of the ‘teeth’ of the comb, the seams can catch onto your hair and cause breakage and split-ends.
There are different types of combs that you can use to detangle your hair…
This is great for detangling and if your hair is longer it’s better to use a comb with longer teeth for less manipulation.
Another comb is the Denman® brush
This brush is great for detangling your hair during your shampoo-conditioning routine.
Tip: Your hair is most fragile and delicate when wet, so always take great care whenever you are detangling your hair..take your time.. no need to rush this process as laborious as it may be.
Hope this was helpful and if you got any questions just ask in the comment and I’l do my best to answer to the best of my knowledge or I can research for you 😉
Show love to your hair and it will love you back.
So i was out and about in Marbella, soaking in everything Spanish when I saw the most beautiful pieces of furniture *in my opinion*…. everything I saw wasn’t something that would go into a regular sized house. The kinda house I’m talking about has 5-6 bedrooms, 3/4 bathrooms, huge garden in the back maybe even with a swimming pool, an electric gate, maybe even a “friendly dog” haha maybe I’m exaggerating!! but oh well…
Anyway I was walking around literally speechless at was my eyes were beholding… each piece of furniture appeared to be one-of-a-kind piece (but obviously not as it was a pretty big shop), So I started taking pictures on my phone trying hard not to look sooo suspicious to the staff working there lol…
For me I love looking at beautiful things, but then again who doesn’t… I’m not gonna lie the price of these pieces was in the hundreds and escalated to the thousands.. hmm.. maybe one day 🙂 I can dream
I don’t know why but seeing this made me fall in love with spain even more… might decide to come back and live here after I finish university..we’ll see how I fell in about 2yrs…
Here’s a little glimpse… let me know what your favorite piece is in the comment section below.
So I was just browsing on youtube looking for ideas and little inspiration for my natural hair. Back in the UK I was very comfortable with having my natural hair out, I wasn’t at all Worried about being natural here in Spain… but when I arrived I found myself very self conscious especially with stares I was getting. Anyway I heard this video about natural hair, and it made me think what have got to be ashamed or embarrased about… God blessed me with beautiful hair, with its kinks, curls, 75% shrinkage haha (as frustrating as it is I love my hair), versatility and its ability to be moulded in whatever shape I want lol
Listen to this video!! This has officially become my Natural Hair Anthem!!!!
Enjoy and let me know what you think in the comment section. 🙂

HOLA Chicas!!! Como estas? Asi que estoy en Espana!!lol and I absolutely love it. The weather is great… the beach is only 5 mins walk from my apartment **exhales** there’s nothing more I could ask for. God is good!! Being in a completely new environment especially with a different language has ignited my survival instincts … Continue reading
So I dyed my hair!!! Never really thought I’d do it since I became natural.. all I can say is I’m loving it (“,)
Before I did it i read soo many blogs, watched videos on youtube and asked a few people’s opinions so I knew exactly what i was going into, for many of you naturals especially for me getting the colour intensity in your hair is quite difficult because you need to use chemicals (which is sometimes if not always the forbidden word lol)
I still feel natural even with the colour in my hair…surprisingly my hair looks more healthy and has a sheen to it.. I thought I would feel guilty after putting the dye.. almost betrayal to the natural hair circle lol (a little too much but I trully felt like that lol) am I the only one who felt like this? lol
So for the colour I used SoftSheen-Carson Colour Confidence: Auburn.
I chose the no Ammonia formula…here’s some useful info on AMMONIA:
- Ammonia opens the hair shaft so that the dye can actually bond with the hair, and ammonia speeds up the reaction of the dye with the hair.
- It damages the amino acid or protein called Tyrosine which is found inside the hair shaft. Tyrosine is responsible for producing melanin (the natural pigment in the hair shaft). http://www.organiccolorsystems.com/why-you-dont-want-ammonia-hair-color/
so yea don’t wanna spend to much talking about ammonia lol if you wanna find out more just google it.
It took me just over an hour to dye my hair and the colour came out so great. I just followed the instructions and left the colour to work for about 40 mins.
After rinsing and deep conditioning I dried my hair with a micro-fibre towel. Whilst my hair was still damp I massaged my hair from scalp to ends with my penetrating hair oil and sealed with Coconut oil and Vatika hair oil. All I can say is I am very pleased with the results.
Dyeing my hair is the best thing I’ve done so far on my natural journey which has been 18months and counting (“,) not going to lie I have had some ups and downs along the way… especially with the amount of shrinkage which is about 75%+ of my hair lol I’m slowly beginning to accept and embrace my hair the way it is and not compare my hair to other naturalistas.
“No hair is the same” this is something we should all remember.
Hair pictures are coming soon!
Okay.. my hair has been through so much over the past few years, but I’ll talk about just the past couple of months. I officially became ‘au naturelle’ last year on the 3rd of March so its been about 17months. Still can’t believe how fast time flies to be honest..It waits for no-one. The top picture is my hair after a twist out.. my hair is actually longer than this i just get the most intense shrinkage everrrr!! can be frustrating sometimes… and the bottom picture is just a simple/cute and classy protective style I love. the scarf underneath is satin (minimise breakeage) and just a normal black scarf with a bun on the side.
