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?

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!!!


Janelle Monae changed her look!

I don’t think I have ever seen an Afro-Mohawk and a skirt on at the same time on Janelle Monae! This is from her new video with Miguel. This makes me want to go to the salon and change up my look as soon as possible!


Does this inspire you to change up your look at all? 

Janelle Monae & Her Unique Look

Janelle Monae & That Incredible Hair

It’s been a while everyone – I am sorry for the lack of posts and updates. I took this screencap from the interview she did with the Breakfast Club that you can watch here. Janelle is a visual Black Forest digital cupcake – stunning, devastating and just you want more and more of it. I feel like she has really switched up her look.

Watch the interview – even her creamy Southern accent makes her hair pop even harder!

I haven’t felt inspired recently because being bogged down by work and my business but her whole look here just inspired the hell out of me.

I’m back.

What do you think of this look?
