    6 months postpartum shedding update

    postpartum shedding natural hair

    I haven’t written much about my hair on the blog recently, this is because I haven’t been doing much to my hair to really chat about here. If you didn’t know, I have been experiencing postpartum shedding for the past 4 months – basically my hair is a mess. In order to go through this phase as seamlessly as possible, I have chosen to keep my hair hidden under protective styles. My current protective styles of choice have been wigs and crochet braids, both are very simple to maintain and give me access to my hair. Read on to know a bit more about how my hair is doing.

    how to // trim 4c natural hair

    Trimming 4c natural hair

    Trimming ones hair is one of those unfortunate things that need to happen if you want to maintain healthy ends and healthy looking hair. When I had relaxed hair, I hated trimming my hair because it equated to a loss in length. Since becoming natural, I have become the opposite, in the beginning of my natural hair journey, I was so scissor happy – luckily that has died down now. I recently trimmed my hair and I have decided to share the knowledge of the whole process.  Read more…

    January 2017 hair update

    It’s a new year – well it has been for the past month now :).

    April 2016 hair update

    This month was fairly uneventful when it came to my hair, I have been protective styling for nearly the whole month. I did not do much to my actual hair, it was well hidden under the crochet braids. This was my first protective style since going natural, I must say that I am pretty proud of myself for keeping the PS on for 5 and a half weeks. I did miss my hair terribly towards the end and I was itching to uninstall.  Read more…
