Back in the blogging bidness!

I’ve been so deprived of my Tumblr duties (haha!) due to moving, settling in, and training as a Resident Assistant at my university! But I’m back at it :-)

This was a third day twist out, btw. Usually my hair is much more defined the first three days, but it’s been raining a lot these past two weeks and so my hair responds to the humidity, lol! But that is okay. I actually loved my twist out this way :-)



What would happen if I don't deep condition my hair at all? And are protein treatment necessary? —by Anonymous

Hey!:-) Deep conditioning your hair is necessary for maintaining healthy strands and improving the hair’s elasticity. If you do not deep condition regularly or at all, then your hair will be more susceptible to breakage and be lack luster in appearance. 

Our hair also thrives on moisture. Deep conditioning your hair regularly helps with that tremendously, because you are allowing the hair’s cuticles to raise up and thus allowing your oils, conditioners, etc to penetrate through the strands to allow that moisture and also the wonderful nutrients in! Plus, deep conditioning is so therapeutic! Lol, treat your hair to them :-)

Also, protein treatments aren’t necessary per say, in that you do not have to use them if you do not need them. “Need” is the key word, because different heads of hair need more or need less protein than others. For me, using protein is on an as-needed basis. Because my strands are naturally coarse (similar in appearance to black thread), I don’t use protein that often because then it results in protein overload (hair that feels stiff and hard). However, I use protein only if my hair feels or looks to dull and I need an extra boost in strength because of how much I rely on moisturising conditioners that will eventually leave my hair feeling too “gummy” in the long run. Thus, I will add Greek yogurt to the deep conditoning mix about once and 2-3 months. For others, especially those with fine hair (ie translucent strands of hair) or may have hair that is damaged, than protein would be more beneficial and should be used much more often to help strengthen the hair follicles. This is because fine hair and damaged hair are are most likely susceptible to breakage. 

When using protein, you use it at your own discretion. Once again, it’s also about balance and learning what your hair needs with time.

Hey hun :), just wondering, how long have u been natural...? —by Anonymous

Hey! I’ve been natural for three years now, with two big chops in between :-)



Hair: Five minute updo
I turned a week old twist out into this super duper quick updo. And guess how long it took me to do it? Five minutes! These last two weeks have been quite hectic (non-stop Resident Assistant training at my university), but it’s almost over and soon I can finally dedicate my time to my blog & Youtube channel. I just wanted to share this photo!
Also, peep the dress—found it for $7 at Goodwill :-)

Aaah, 1,009 subscribers on YouTube!
This may not seem like much, but that is stil 1,009 people who thought my channel was worthy of a subscription :-) Thank you so much!
I apologise for being MIA on YT and my blog lately. I recently switched locations (moved into my dorm room) last week, and I’ve now been training morning to evening as a Resident Assistant at my university, and getting ready for my residents to move in. It’s so much work, but I’m also trying to be more strategic with time for Naija Curls by completing my deadlines by Thursday! :-)
Thank you for your support! Have a wonderful rest of the week! I shall be back this weekend <3

Went to my local Target today (Edgewood area in Atlanta) and guess what I stumbled upon?

Target is officially carrying La Tourangelle Avocado Oil! I love this stuff! How exciting! It’s super rare to find places selling high quality avocado oil other than in specialty food stores. The price is just right, too.

If you live in the Atlanta area, please visit the Target on Caroline Street! :-)

the hot oil treatment with JBCO and rosemary oil, did you apply it to your scalp or edges? —by Anonymous

Hey! I actually just applied it to my edges and nape area since that is where I was experiencing my traction alopecia. I used to apply it on my scalp here and there, but there was really no need for it because it can make my scalp itch (castor oil is pretty viscous in nature, meaning you can feel it sticking to your scalp).

Why is your sister doing another big chop? I want to big chop but I'm not sure if it is necessary. Could you help. Thanks —by Anonymous

Hey! :-) My sister actually cut off her hair prior to crochet braiding. This was because she experienced major heat damage after going to a professional salon (that doesn’t really cater to black hair), as well as experiencing breakage from her Senegalese twists because her hair was too weak to keep them in, and a host other different factors. 

A big chop comes at your own expense. If you are experiencing any damage or excessive breakage where you are not really retaining length, then a big chop would definitely be a great solution because you are essentially able to start fresh! <3

I am really thinking of attempting a wash and go in the future.

I have an idea of how I can achieve one on my hair, so I want to put that into use.

Has anyone ever done a wash and go? Was it a success or a fail?
