FOUR YEARS NATURAL!

 

Oh my! It has been four years since I started the natural hair journey and today am not celebrating hair length. No! Today , i’m just happy that I have never looked back, that I have fallen deeply in love with my hair, that I have inspired someone to take care of their hair and love it as well. Today, I celebrate the health goals I have achieved. I celebrate myself for starting a platform to inspire women with natural hair, like you who is reading this. I’m happy because a journey I started four years ago has opened so many doors for me (and many more to come ;-)) and I pray that I become a more resilient person, more persistent, more open to try new things, just like my natural hair has taught me. So cheers to many more 🙂 and thank YOU for the support this far.

Love,

Margie

Cornrows 103

 

 

 

Once again, I saw a cornrow trend, I fell in love with it, and I tried it. 🙂 It took me a while before deciding to cornrow my hair because (1) I dreaded having my hair blow dried, and 2) I wasn’t sure if the outcome would be as good as I wanted. (See here the image I used to direct my salonist). So let me share with you what you may want to know about the process of achieving this look.

Kimono Life

Once in a while, certain fashion pieces catch my eye and I get the urge to share them on this platform with the hope that someone gets inspired (style-wise of-course). This Kimono statement is one of those pieces that I could not resist to share about.

IT’S WORLD AFRO DAY (WAD) 2017

Photography by Kenyan Story

I was very excited to hear about World Afro Day. (WAD). This, to me, meant that there is growing recognition of afro/textured hair not only in our countries, but across the globe. Today, 15th September, marks the inaugral World Afro Day. An event geared towards creating awareness and promoting appreciation for the the unique place of afro hair throughout the world will be held in London today. And even though you and I cannot attend this event, we can remain true to the purpose of this day by celebrating the value and beauty that is natural hair in kenya today.

This post is dedicated to any struggling naturalista out there; ANyone feeling inferior due to their hair texture, anyone undergoing discrimination at the work place or wherever they are because of their hair.

Twist outs are the most beautiful hairdos (or one of the best) on natural hair if done properly. When I did the Big Chop three years ago, I really longed for the time my hair would look great in twist outs. Last year, my hair was doing quite well and I actually did a video showing my twist outs using Raw Shea Butter and that is the last time I loved my twist outs….till this week 😉 A few tips have helped a long the way and why not share so that we can slay together? 😉

THREE BRIDAL WEDDING ACCESSORIES FOR THE NATURAL-HAIR BRIDE

 

The importance of wedding hair accessories on your wedding day cannot be underestimated. They set the mood and theme a notch higher and therefore you need to be careful when settling on your accessories for the big day. A number of things that you should consider when choosing your bridal accessories include: your wedding gown, the theme of your wedding, the hairstyle that you will choose, whether or not you are going to wear a veil, and what kind of jewelry are you wearing. Having been on the bridal line up recently and I had to do some research on bridal accessories. I got three that I have been using for sometime and it is safe to say that this post applies to the brides-to-be as well as a bridesmaid looking to glam up their hair with some accessories.
