Tapered – finally!

Hello lovelies! Popping in to share with you my tapered look. I've been itching to do it for a year or more but the thought of cutting my 3 year's worth of "long hair" was too overwhelming! But 2 months ago, I finally did it. Then I went home that night and bawled. But truly, … Continue reading Tapered – finally!

Today has been an amazing day celebrating my 2nd wedding anniversary with my hubby, Hleku. We spent the day at a lovely hotel by the Vaal River and later spent some time by the Vaal Dam. It’s been an awesome two years in marriage with tonnes of lessons (to be shared on another day), God has really been great to us and I honestly would choose him all over again if given the chance. Before I get too mushy let me get back to my original purpose of this post… Since December is wedding season in these parts of the world and today was my anniversary I decided to share a few hairstyles that natural bride with TWA’s (or longer hair) could use for their big day.

My hubby took all the pics, thanks babe!

Let me know which is your favourite 🙂

Steaming is the best thing I could have done for my hair!

This is a great in-depth review on hair steaming with a lot of great information. If you’re thinking about getting a steamer for your hair, take a read.

Anyone who knows me, knows I am an avid DIYer and advocate of learning your own hair and how to maintain it. With that, having the right equipment will make the process easier and more effective. My mission was my deep condition treatments.

In an attempt to amp up my deep conditioning, I went online to find a solution. Even though the plastic bag on my head generated heat, it just wasn’t enough for me. I wanted a hooded dryer that gets to a decent temperature to speed the process . After reading TONS of reviews and blogs, I came across a review for a steamer. And THAT is when I realized I was searching for the wrong thing!

Fast forward 6 months later and I found an excellent replacement for my plastic bag 😄 Hot Heads by Thermal Hair Care is what I use when I am relaxing, need to multitask…

"Going natural is a journey; a journey of self discovery and self acceptance. It’s like stripping your clothes off and standing in the mirror and saying ‘Yes! I accept myself with all the features I was born with.’" "...my quest for self acceptance, strong love for the hair I was born with and being able … Continue reading Quoted

Tell us a bit about yourself and the life of your hair before going natural.   
My name’s Nekisha from the beautiful Caribbean isle of Antigua & Barbuda! I have always had “sal’ head” (salt head) which is how we, in the Caribbean, describe kids whose hair was excessively short and “picky”. Growing up, I relaxed my hair to literal death. In my late teens (19 +) I started wearing weaves on a constant. At one point I did not own a shampoo or conditioner in excess of a year because as soon as one extension was removed, I was at the hair dresser’s the next day getting my hair washed, treated and a new set of extensions installed. I did not have any love nor a connection to my hair. By age 24, my…
