FOUR WAYS TO TIE A HEAD WRAP WHILE IN BRAIDS

Do you guys know the feeling when you get your hair braided then a few days later, you look at pics of your natural hair then you absolutely miss it? Or, when you have your natural hair open, then you see someone braided and you immediately want to braid? (Like I’ve made some of y’all feel) Lol! Anyway, I have always loved being colourful and when rocking braids, turbans and head scarves can add the colourful vibe to your whole look. So here are a few ways I have tied my scarves and turbans when rocking this super light braided up-do and felt absolutely uplifted (because colours have a way of making us cheerful 🙂 )

MY BRAID CARE ROUTINE

 

It’s been two years since I had box braids installed!! The last time was when my friend did them for me and I trusted her to do them.  I say ‘trust’ because that’s usually the main issue for me when it comes to braiding. The questions that run through my head include “Will she mess up my hairline? ” “Can she make my hair without using heat? ” ” Will it be painful? ” “Will I handle the weight of the braids ” …etc .I’m usually very skeptical about braiding but when I heard about Darling Elegant Braids being #HairLightAsHair, I had to try them and if you are curious if they are, this blog post is for you 😉😉Before delving into the my braid care routine,let me give you the details of what I used and who made my hair this time…

Easy Wedding Hairstyle for Natural Hair- Marley Faux Bun

So I’m at that stage where I am attending many  bridal showers,  weddings,  baby showers, and things family oriented. Most of my age mates are getting married and it’s a beautiful time to try out wedding hair updos. One of my favourite and easiest hair do for weddings has to be the faux bun.  This hairstyle is so easy to do,  inexpensive, and beautiful. I actually rocked it at my cousin’s wedding last year and most of you asked for a tutorial.  I prepared a pictorial instead and I am going to show you,  step by step,  how to achieve this look.

Cornrows 102: Fulani Braids

Heeeello there,

I am in good spirits and excited to share this updo that’s one week now (two more to go). FULANI braids y’all!! This hairstyle has been trending for a while and I had to try them as well. It’s not as new as most of us think as it originated from the traditional west African ladies of the Fulani tribe who have rocked it for ages with their natural hair.  The beads are a key aspect that accentuate the look and therefore the more the merrier.  Some of you saw this pic on my instagram page and requested a post on it so here we go ladies ?????…

My Faux Locs Experience

Faux Locs

Hello dearies,

It’s been a minute since I posted but I  am glad to be back.  This has been my year of protective styling and since I undid my cornrows, I have been rocking faux locs. If you’ve ever read my post on how I take care of my hairline, then you pretty much know that I lost it all the first time I did faux locs, (which by the way, I swore never to have them done again). Never say never though. As I type this, I am actually preparing to take them down, three months later.  Perfect time to share how I have been taking care of them, right? 🙂

Casual Chic : Turban

Turbans! Who said they are only for bad hair days?  Turbans are also for my lazy hair days. I was tired of the same old kinda way of tying turbans and thought of spicing them up with my bangs .
