7 ways to take care of 4C hair

I'm not a 4C hair specialist or a hairdresser but I know what works for my hair and I always get asked questions about my hair and how I maintain it and why it looks healthy so I thought I would do a post about it.

Update: Where have I been? Depression and Counselling

I have been avoiding to post anything for the past 3 months because I didn't want to get personal. Ive been avoiding this topic for the longest but I feel like now is the right time to talk about it.

Don't touch my hair

"Don't touch my hair, when it's the feeling I wear
Don't touch my soul, when its the rhythm I know
Don't touch my crown, they say the vision I've found 
Don't touch what's there, when it's the feelings I wear"

Hidradenitis Suppurativa Update

I can say today that I am flare up free. Wooop, jumps for joy. This is great because for about 2 years straight I had flare ups but I haven't had one in about a month and it feels so great and weird at the same time as I was used to having some sort of leak under my armpit. I still check my armpits for any boils but none so far (fingers crossed). So what did I do to stop this you ask? I started using tea tree oil. I kept on having flare ups from where my wounds hadn't healed. I had been back and forth to the

Review: Philip Kingsley

I bought these 3 products in 2014 as it was recommended by the hairdresser that did my hair. I went to Darren Scott hair salon in Maida Vale, London and it was a good experience, they do afro hair and European hair. As it was recommend that it will help with dry hair and add moisture I thought great I'll buy even though the price is quite high.

My love for Solange

I love Solange. She was one of the first women I saw rocking her fro in the entertainment business. My mouth dropped and something clicked like OMG I have afro hair also. I first relaxed my hair when I was 14 (Maybe I'll document my hair journey on here at some point). Which I think was quite late most people had it done way before secondary school. I begged my mum so much even years before that, because I was the only natural in the village looool, plus my mum found it hard to manage my hair. She used to canerow my hair and pull it ruffly ( You guys know the pain and how hard it was to manage then as there was no hair products then to "soften" your hair). The hot comb was my best friend, well sort of she used burn my ears with it BUT WHATEVER! ( Do you remember it had to be warmed up on the stove?) Wow the new generation will have no idea the struggle we faced back then. Anywho my best friend Tiwi was the first person to go natural around me. I remember she said to me I'm gonna stop relaxing my hair and cut of the relaxed ends ( I used to relax her hair for her or I think I did it one time) and I went to the hairdresser with her and watched her get her "big chop". She inspired me that summer to do the same and I never looked back. Anyway I know I am coming off topic but you need to know the background of what life was like for a black girl living in the UK knowing that her hair was different to the majority and why it is so important to me now. Solange made it ok to wear your hair the way God created it. If every other race can wear their hair the way they was born with it then why can't we? She became my inspiration and at that point I wanted to know more.
