5 TIPS ON HOW TO BUILD YOUR SELF ESTEEM/CONFIDENCE

Thirteen  years ago, at the height of puberty, I could never look into the mirror without picking out ‘flaws’. From my face, my chubby cheeks, my full hairline, my tiny nails, my small hips: I did not like the girl I saw. Flash forward to today, I look in the mirror these days and I can’t believe how in love I am with myself.  I am proud of the woman I’ve become. I love all the features I thought were flaws.  I have learnt to love myself and embrace my insecurities. There are several things that I did/stopped doing that helped build my self esteem and embrace myself and today I want to inspire you who might be going through a similar phase:

QUICK WASH & GO PUFF (STEP BY STEP PICTORIAL)

 

It can be extremely difficult to style your hair after washing it especially if you don’t have time! I recently had to wash my hair because midweek because I felt it was a little bit dirty to take me to the end of the week.  Whenever this happens,  I usually opt to to tie it up in a puff using minimal products and this saves time for me.  So if you want to know how to do the same then this blog post is for you 😉

10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD WEAR A WIG

It’s been tough rocking a wig in Nairobi due to wig snatching around the CBD area but I’m very happy that it’s all calm now. Other than security reasons, there is usually a lot of stigma associated with wigs. To be honest, I used to be the kind of girl who thought wigs and weaves were for older women exclusively. Well, I was clearly part of the problem and let’s just say I grew up/older and now I can proudly share 1o reasons why every woman should invest in at least one wig. My very first wig to wear was this afro wig and in case you missed out on how I made it, watch this video here just before I convince you why you should own one.

SAREES AND FASCINATORS

I love it when I get the chance to accessorize my braids because accessories definitely make a difference ! So I was fascinated (all pun intended) when I realized that I could accessorize using fascinators while rocking braids. It was more pleasing to get one that matched the colour of this beautiful Saree that I was gifted by one gorgeous lady. She gave me this Saree three years ago but I was so tiny to fit in.  This is the one time gaining weight has come in really handy 😗😊.

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.
