The Natural Hair Journey Continues: Box Braiding My Own Hair

Hello and welcome. This is a hair post. I remember in secondary school, my friends would corn row my hair when my hair is not in braids. I wore braids most of the time and due to this my hair grew really long. My mum would usually braid my hair and so I rarely went to the hairstylist to plait my hair.



In recent years I have been braiding my own hair. Partly due to the fact that I cannot be bothered to go and get it done. The thought of sitting for so long just haunts me and hurts my ever growing butt * sweeps hair to side. Also I notice that 

In addition to this, although it does not look uber professional its cheap because I only have to buy the hair. I usually keep it in for about 2 months and I prefer not to over manipulate the hair. 








When I first went natural I went to a lady to cornrow my hair and she put a hot comb through my precious natural hair like the world was at her mercy. From then I decided to do my own hair because it seemed like many hairdressers didn't know how to deal with natural hair.

By doing my own hair I know what to do and what not to do. I am able to cater for my edges and scalp a lot better and do the style I want.



Before I braid, there are a few things I do like letting my scalp rest before deep conditioning and re-braiding. I deep condition before and after to ensure my scalp and hair are nurtured on a regular basis. I sometime to ayurvedic or fruit mask to deep condition then I braid.



Deu to this I feel I am getting to know my hair a lot better. I plan on getting a few things to help me with getting the pH right as this is important if you want to maintain a healthy growing hair.

That's all for this post. Until next time it's bye from me.

What I Wore | Makeup & Outfit | ASOS | Primark

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is another what I wore. First I will give you some spiritual food.
The scripture today was taken from Colossians 1:29 and 2 - 11. The summary of what was taught to us was to be careful of philosophy of man which has no life in it. And also praying as we may or may not know is a spiritual battle as Paul talks about in his praying for the people in Colosse. 
The look
Today I used my L A Girl Pro Foundation in Rich Cocoa. For concealer, I mixed MAC studio fix concealer in NW45 and L A Girl Pro concealer in fawn. I used Ben nye powder in to in topaz.


For my eye shadow I used MUAs eye shadow pallette Nautral obsession colour 13 on the outer corners of my eyelids and 23 on the lids. I also applied a it of colour 17 in the corners of my eyes. In the outer corner to darken it a bit I applied a bit of the matte obsessed from the Ultimate undressed palette.


For a face powder I used MACs studio fix in NW 45. I really like the finish look seeing that I am not a p…

Beauty From Within - Hydrolysed Collagen

Hello and welcome to my blog. This beauty within post is a product review of Holland and Barrett hydrolysed collagen with vitamin C.


Hydrolysed Collagen as we may or may not know is a building block of the skin and is very popular in skin care products such as lotions and serums. Together with vitamin C when taken helps to maintain the skins elasticity thereby giving you a youthful look.


I have taken this some years back but have not recently because it is costly. A bottle cost £32.99 however Holland and Barrett were doing an offer for £10.00 each I believe so I bought two to take again. The size of the tablets are better now compared to before.

The instruction states to take three tablets twice a day which is a bit much 😁. I will report back with any visible changes to the texture of my skin. I got to choose two sample skin lotion as well. I chose aloe Vera and snail.
