new hair :D

Well i just got my hair done today, single plaits hopefully it will last till august, it took 4hours in total which is still pretty quick considering how fine they are. I think i might plait my hair for the rest of the year because i not sure if i'll be able to comb it after august! haha!
The style is especially for my prom on saturday as i have now finished college! wooo! so i'll be posting some of my prom pics too next week :)
Took some pics in my kitchen but there with my laptop so sorry for the poor quality..

Everything + NERD!!!!!

YES YES YES! N.E.R.D was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!
I had such a great night! I will add in the photos as soon as my friend sends them to me! (i'll pop them below) OH! Pharrell is soooooo HOT! and he really does have a beautiful voice! I love every single moment. And me and my friend both got to be interviewed about NERD :D

Hair... Well my hair did kinda flop on the night but I kind of expected it to as there was soo much jumping around and it was sooooo hot.

Hmmm i considering doing a henna tomorrow, yup think i will I'll mix it tonight and apply it tomorrow but not for long as i have to watch England play in the world cup!!!! wooo come on England! Lol back to henna, I think I do about 50 to 100g mixed with hot water and about two table spoons of amla oil, I'm gonna have to look up some recipes them come back to you with my final plan + results

I plan to alternate between flat twist outs and straight hair untill I get my hair re-braided

New Style and NERD :)

Just a quick post, just took some photos on my laptop so i thought i show you my latest transitioning style..

I've just clipped in about 5 tracks of weave and straighted the front section of my hair with my GHDs. I'll probably do this for two-three weeks, washing only once a week and re-straightening the front to blend it in.

Oh and I have a geography exam tomorrow! Wish me luck! And after I'm going to see N.E.R.D YES! N.E.R.D! Live wooooooooop! Can't wait hahah what a after exam treat! LOL i hope my hair doesn poof up in the crowd...

almost 6 months post!

On 17th of June I will be 6months post relaxer! woop! I've just taken out my braids which was a bit of a disaster since I 'decided' not to comb out my hair dry! what a mistake. Anyway the lesson is, dont attempt to wash your hair if it still has knots in :(

Now my camera is still broken so I can't really take any pics apart from on my laptop which come out really dark :( so hopefully i'll get it fixed and i'll put some new pics up soon.

I dont wanna talk too quickly or anything, but my hair is doing well so far, not much breakage, its not really dry. The only thing now is finding styles hat blend both textures cos im really trying to avoid straightening my hair.

I've got three exams left untill I COMPLETELY finish 6th form! Can't wait!

a little update

Thought I'd give a hair and general update :)

I'm 5months into my transition to natural! wooo! Currently I've got my hair in braids, I put them in the second week of April and I think I'll be taking them out some time in June. The only thing is I may get tempted to relax my hair which I really don't want. Or I'll straighten it which my damage my new growth. I really don't think I can handle short hair so I think even if I do chop, I'll keep braiding my hair until its at a length I feel comfortable with. Oh and the photo is my current hair style and I had fake eyelashes on :)

Got my A-level exams next month and one next week so wish me luck peoples :) but once there over I be free to do what ever I want! Looool

Quick update

So far I'm almost 4months into transitioning :) (and i can still comb my hair! lol) I'm not gonna lie I have thought about relaxing several times but my goal is still to go natural. Within the next week or two I'm gonna get some braids and get them re-done as needed until august. Then I'm thinking to get a press and cut maybe or just stick with the braids but we'll see... I will definitely be a long term transitioner so I don't think I'll be 'fully' natural until January or December

Here are some ladies I've been watching on YouTube that are quite inspirational as naturals...
