LIFE LESSONS MY HAIR HAS TAUGHT ME




Hey Kinks what's up y'all happy Thursday, sorry this post is coming to you late in the night been a crazy day...

So my hair has been inspiring my life lately and I decided to make this post about the inspiration I have been getting from it...


  • SHRINKAGE: this is one of the greatest love hate relationship almost every naturalista have...  Shrinkage have taught me never to underestimate any one or any situation... Cos the length You See is not always the length it is... Treat everyone as though they are on equal length or will be one day... 



  • Drying up when exposed for too long: Just like your hair will dry up when it has been exposed for a long time to air, so your life can dry up when it is exposed to things or people that are toxic to your life and health.. Put your life up in a bun sometimes and tuck it away..  



  • Constant need for moisturising: What you water will grow... What you suffocate or stifle will die.. Just as your hair need steps to proper moisturising so does your life! Make sure to moisturise your life as well.. 



  • Fritziness: Most of the time your wash and go or twist out are never in order, there is always one strand of hair that sticks out and wants to have a party of its own... I either do  two things (1) cut it off (2) tuck it real tight back in... Do the same with your life cut things off or contain them..  You have various options refuse to suffer with just one. 



  • Slowly it grows: People say Natural hair don't grow and thats the biggest lie I have heard with tender loving care,  patience and kindness shown to the hair it will grow... So is life, you just have to be patient with it and let it grow in its own pace and time.

5 TIPS TO HELP REDUCE SPLIT ENDS AND BREAKAGE

Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

Okay so to the post what is a split end?  The end of a hair strand is damaged resulting in the strand separating into two or more fragments.

Hair breakage is more of a problem for naturals than split ends because split ends is as a result of many activities that a TRUE natural try to avoid..

Most naturals really suffer from hair breakage and I used to be a part of the team (even do my hair still breaks it has reduced a lot)

Here are five tips to help you manage hair breakage..

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.

3 REASONS WHY YOUR HAIR ISN'T GROWING

Hey kinks what's up y'all? Happy weekend darlings..

So based on the numerous questions on hair growth, here are three reasons why your hair isn't growing.


YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  


YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way).. There are a lot of DIY's out there but you have to be c…
