We met on Hairlista and have been in contact ever since. Kara recently big chopped and i was shocked, amazed, inspired… i had a million and one questions to ask her, which she was more than happy to answer!
I even had to skip on airdrying, and blowdry and straighten my leave out hair straight away.That’s how bad it was…major flop!
On top of that i was surprised at the mini ball of hair that came out when combing my hair, especially considering the fact that my leave out hair barely sheds! It may not seem like a lot but for the little leave out hair that i have… this is major!

I’ve been a fan of Nia Longs smooth, flawless, 40 year old face for a long time now! She has such youthful, glowing skin… both in and out of makeup!

I mentioned a few posts ago how much i want to do a Henna treatment. I’m officially counting down! 2 more weeks and i’ll be taking out my weave install and treating my hair to some henna gloss.
I’m steering away from a straight Henna treatment because many people critique Henna alone as being too drying. It acts as a strong protein treatment, so to avoid excess use of protein i will apply conditioner to the mix… a.k.a the gloss!
I’ve ordered my Henna from Akua @ Sheabuttercottage as well as some Shea butter and Neem powder. Here is the mix I will be using:
Here are some great heat protectants …
|1. Aveda Brilliant damage control|
2. Fantasia ic heat protection serum
3. Elasta QP Design Silk
4. Aussi heat protection
5. TRESemme thermal heat protective spray
6. Chi silk infusion

Not much of a hair post as you’ve guessed, but no joke this protective style challenge is proving quite boring! I feel like i’m in hair product rehab…. there’s no fun in not being able to buy products and test them… in fact the thought of waiting a whole month (weave take-out) before my henna gloss treatment gives me eye spasms… grrr… so this is what you’ll have to put up with guys… posts about me… my life… perhaps other products…hmm makeup might… READ MORE...
