DEFINED TWIST OUT ON SHORT 4C HAIR

After several trials, I finally mastered the twist out style with my 4c hair kinky hair. If you’re twist outs do not work, keep trying, maybe you need more length, or maybe you need to try different products or maybe you are doing something technically wrong, like weting the twists before taking them out. But keep trying ladies.

Here are the steps I took that finally allowed me to achieve a nice twist out:

QUICK & EASY SCARF TUTORIALS FOR NATURAL HAIR

Have you ever woken up, checked the mirror and realised that it was a bad hair day. But you are in such a rush to leave for uni or work, or you are in no mood what so ever to sort your hair out, or you need to run out quickly to do next week’s shopping! Well here are couple of quick video tutorials on quick hairstyles you can do in 5 minutes with scarves. Now that spring is here and summer is around the corner, these styles are now in season, so take full advantage. Word of advice is try and go for like a silk scarf rather than a cotton scarf as cotton tends to dry out your hair. However if you want to use a cotton scarf, then perhaps you should use something underneath to protect your hair e.g. the satin scarf you use at night.

Spotlight Interview: Millicent Swift (NaturallyMichy)

Hey Everybody, so I am going to begin a new thing called Spotlight, were I will showcase women or men, mainly women, who deserve to be recognized for their healthy and beautiful natural hair. The purpose of this is for you guys to get to know why they embraced being natural and how they do it, including their hair care routines, and their tips and advice that would benefit you in your own natural hair journey. Personally I’ve learnt a lot! 

Each month I will try and ask different questions and I will try and target different individuals including bloggers, professional natural hair stylists, natural hair event planners, vloggers, etc.

Today I am placing a young woman, who goes by the name NaturallyMichy, in the spotlight! She is an experienced YouTube vlogger (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUWtP1_WUVExmbU6XM_5-rQ) as well as the owner of a natural hair blog (http://naturallymichy.com/). 

Her videos and blog posts are very informative and easy to understand and I believe she is a great person to learn from so I am glad that she agreed to share her Natural Hair experience with us and how she achieved such lovely healthy hair.
