How To | My Signature Tapered Fro Twist Out

twist out
Seriously, I’ve literally been rocking this twist out style everyday for the past 5 months and I’m still not bored! It’s not so much the ease of the hairstyle but how perfectly it compliments the tapered cut I had done back in August,  I just love it! As some of you may know [mentioned on instagram], I’ll be saying goodbye to my fro in the month of Feb and trying out a new hairstyle or two. But before I put it away I filmed a short video on how I achieve my signature tapered fro twist out. Let me know what you think!

P.s. My 6 month hair growth challenge officially starts on the 9th of Feb so stay tuned for next weeks posts on my action plan and how you can get involved too. You’ll be surprised at the extents a bride will go to make her hair flawless for her big day!

Love Always

Happy Friday Lovelies!

It feels like forever since I posted any personal hair pics. In fact one of my lovely readers picked up on this and I completely agree. I’ve been working on some exciting posts and these will be rolling out over the next two weeks, as well as some videos of course, one I’ve literally just finished filming.

If you’re wondering what is going on with my hair I’m sure these pics will tell it all! Fro fro and more fro!

Calling All Naturals/Transitioners : How To Stretch Your Hair Without Heat, Four Methods Worth A Try

Thanks to my one year heat free challenge I can honestly say that looking after my hair over the past few months has been a breeze. It’s healthier than ever, stronger than ever, and I would do it all over again in a second.

Now it would be quite cheeky of me to say that the entire heat free year was a walk in the park, in fact the first few weeks of going heat free were more like a hike! The more I attempted to wash and go READ MORE »

The Heat Free Straightening Tool That Everyone Is Talking About

Happy Monday Loves!

So I had other plans for today’s post but I couldn’t let this slide. I don’t know about you but over the weekend my instagram feed was buzzing with images of the CWK Snap, Stretch, Style Plates. Now these aren’t as you may be thinking flat iron ceramic plates, no these are a set of plastic moulds that can take your hair from curly to straight without the need for  heat!

I first came across the CWK moulds at the end of last year, they sent one READ MORE »

New In : DivaWig, Keratindose, Mac Makeup & More

I’ve finally received all of the items I ordered over the Christmas period, I knew that many of them would not stay on my wish list for very long and I’ve already started to experiment with them. Dare I say some have already secured places on my staples list! I’ll start with one of my most anticipated packages, the Infiniti Pro Conair Hair Designer …

BLOW DRYER CONAIRI literally put this order in whilst writing my ‘2015 Must Haves’ post. I haven’t used heat on my hair since November 2013 and now READ MORE »

Beauty Corner: Ageless Beauties & Tips I’m Stealing From Them Like Now!


With the little time that I had off over Christmas I decided to take a trip down memory lane and browse through some of my older posts. It’s something I do once a year just before writing my goals for the new year, so that I can decide on which types of posts/series I will continue and those I’ll be parting ways with.

I stumbled upon a post I had written about Annette Larkins, the 72 year old who had me google-ing her profile for almost two days to find READ MORE »

2015 Must Haves …


For as long as I can remember I’ve had these products or tools on my wish list, but for one reason or another I couldn’t justify purchasing them. For example, I’ve been crushing on the Conair blowdryer for months now but having gone heat free for the year of 2014, I just couldn’t bring myself to buy something I wouldn’t use for a whole year! Either way, 2015 is about to be one of my most experimental years hair wise, so whilst you may be reading this as a READ MORE »

My Winter Hair Care Secret For Natural Hair. Can’t Get Enough of This!

Natural Hair and Hats

About a week ago, I decided that the lack of a woolly hat of some sort in my wardrobe simply wasn’t permissible. Whilst I wasn’t quite the hat wearer during my relaxed hair days, I most certainly threw my beach hat on whenever the opportunity would arise.

The thing is, ever since going natural I just couldn’t figure out how to get the best of both worlds, i.e wear a hat and keep my head warm without messing up my twist out/fro!

That was until a day after treating myself

5 Hair Growth & Retention Secrets of Women With Waist Length Hair


A few weeks after cutting my hair to the lowest length I have ever had, my excitement at my boldness and new hair cut was suddenly drowned, by the realisation that my hair would not be long enough to wear in its natural state on my wedding day next year!

Now I love a well done weave, and could of course get a sew-in using hair similar to the texture of my natural hair, but how boring would that be? A hair growth challenge sounds a lot more exciting and READ MORE »
