My protective ombre weave in Johannesburg

Ombre 2


I spent my birthday on Sunday in Johannesburg with my boyfriend and this is a funny picture he took of me! You can see the ombre tones of the blonde and brown of the weave. I am loving this protective weave so far!

What do you think? 

Nicki Minaj made me get this hair…

This is my new protective weave that I am doing right now! What do you think? It’s a sew in weave and the brand of the weave is COS that I bought from

I’m in LOVE with this!


My April 2014 Natural Hair




This is my hair as of this week with just a bit of conditioner and brushed out. I always suffer from so much shrinkage HA HA HA!

Do you guys suffer from shrinkage? 


I have been blow-dry free since January 2014

If you guys know this blog, you know that I used to love using heat. But I am convinced heat took a lot of length off my Afro and I will upload some pictures to show how heat-free my hair has been and how I have been doing.

I’ve also been using new products and I have been using more protective styles. Again, I realise this blog went on a 3-month hiatus but I cannot wait to share more hair & life adventures with you all. I am thrilled that I have been blow-dry free and I want to build on this.

I was formerly a blow-dry addict and hopefully I will not use the blow-dryer for at least 6 months.

Have you put the blow-dryer down?

We’re back

It has been a ridiculously long time since M & I have been away from the blog. Honestly, so sorry about this absence and anyone who stuck with us and is reading this, thank you for just reading it. We are back, and we have missed you.

Please tweet me or comment on the post to let me know how you are!

My New Natural Hair Bob

New Hair II


I styled my hair like this today – what do you think of bobs made purely from natural hair? No heat was involved, my hair needs a break from heat :)

Gorgeous Afro Photoshoot in VOGUE Netherlands

{Image spotted at Woman In the Jungle}

I saw this image at Woman In the Jungle and I just had to share it. It was such an inspiring photoshoot and shows off what Afro beauty truly looks like. I can see how this image makes me want to shave my hair off but I won’t!

What do you think?

New short protective style




My new short hair protective style! What do you think of it? I was inspired by beyonce!

Janelle Monáe’s Hair Art is Inspiring

I know I have been away for many weeks due to a crazy schedule with my business but wow, I can see what I have been missing in the Afro hair & beauty world judging by the cover art for Janelle Monáe’s new album or album that she has been promoting for a while since I have been off the grid. All I can say are two words: hair art!

I am so sorry for being gone for so long and I would love to hear all of your thoughts on her hair here!

Check out the cover art for her single with Miguel that I am obsessed with:


I notice my past few posts have been about her but I am just so amazed and inspired by her look. It is so authentic, so real and that HAIR on the cover art is AWESOME!!!
