Miss Felicia!

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Our absence cannot be explained! Sigh….However we have definitely felt the love this past couple of weeks hence the need for us to pick our proverbial quills and draft a post.
So if any of you natural heads have been on social media these past few weeks you must have heard about the Curltalk Event with the legendary Felicia Leatherwood. It happened this past weekend and was an absolute blast! Felicia is like a hair fairy godmother, you just want to give her loads of hugs and perch your head on her bosom. She is graciousness, queendom, loveliness, kindness personified. 

We would happily pay for a ticket to Los Angeles and sit on her salon chair…..btw have you guys caught her youtube show Headcases. If you haven’t, watch the first episode below.

The event was such a great opportunity for the growing natural hair population in Nairobi and beyond to learn from Felicia but also to catch up and share their own experiences. The pics below can attest to that.

It makes us all warm and fuzzy inside to see how huge the natural hair scene in Nairobi and how it’s such a welcoming community.

Did you guys attend the event? What were your thoughts?

No more Fuzzy Funky Braids

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

 So this week is my fifth week in braids! I am still on my protective styling tip and want to keep them in till the 6th week mark. They were getting rather funky and needed some TLC, so after I saw Wairimu of  www.wairimunyandia.com purchase some Aussie products I ran to Nakumatt Junction to get me some of that Aussie ish. 

I bought the Aussie Moist Conditioner (Kshs 645) and the 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Treatment (Kshs 745) and an impulsive purchase of Doo Gro Mega Thick Growth Oil (Kshs 795). 

To proceed with wash day, I diluted Tresemme Natural Shampoo with water in a spray bottle and sprayed my scalp then gently massaged my scalp to loosen the dirt. I rinsed the shampoo and used the 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Treatment and left it in for about 10 minutes. I then applied a few drops of Suave Almond + Shea Butter Conditioner along the length of the braids as a leave-in. 

I then oiled my scalp with the Doo Gro oil, after adding Lavender essential oil to make the smell more bearable. This product is a mixture of Soybean and Almond oil as well as Shea Butter and has no mineral oil. 

Quick tip to avoid frizzy braids, apply some gel on the length of the braids and wrap with a silk scarf before bed. It works a treat.

Do you have any tips and tricks for maintaining protective styles?

Happy Tuesday Folks.
