I know, I know. Blow drying natural afro hair is like a cardinal sin for women with natural hair but many girls want to know how to do it safely. Ideally you shouldn’t blow your hair out more than twice per year. Some girls love doing it every month but I advise against this. If you want to do a natural hair blow out, you can opt to go to the salon or you can do it yourself. After you do your natural hair blow dry, make sure you finish off your look with makeup such as lipstick, perfume and do your eyebrows. Here are some of my top tips on how you can blow dry natural hair safely: Continue reading →
Merlot is the word of the day! I have found a new beauty salon that didn’t rip me off to get these hot box braids which were done in about 4 + 1/2 hours yesterday at a salon in Kijitonyama in Dar-es-Salaam.
For some time now I’ve been wanting to try a Flexi Rod set, and this weekend I took a go at it. I watched a couple of YouTube videos to get an idea on products and techniques I should use. After watching numerous videos I decided to use Giovanni’s Direct Leave In Conditioner and Fantasia IC Hair Polisher Styling Gel. I used about all my flexi rods which were 35 in total and wouldn’t mind if I had more. When it comes to my curl pattern it is inconsistent, I have tightly coiled hair and wavy hair. I wanted to achieve a smooth curl look and wanted my roots to be smooth but I wasn’t able to achieve that look in the back.
I somewhat like the style but it’s definitely something I would have to get use to. When it was time for bed I put my hair up in a high ponytail and slept in a silk bonnet. I am going to try to attempt this look again and to get it smoother at the roots. What do you think? Have you tried a Flexi Rod Set?
I took out my weave about 3 weeks ago and had my hair blow-dried; I took this picture about a fortnight ago and I liked the result of the hair. I feel like my hair is getting fluffier at the top which I love. It’s kind of like a whipped cream Afro when I took this picture but not sure you see how fluffy it was.
Sasha Ricketts and Natasha Dunn are two women from the UK who have created a natural hair brand called I Love Afro. The London-based pair discuss what it is like running their own business & their thoughts on the business of natural hair, which is on the up and up.
1) Why did you start I Love Afro and how did you spot a gap in the market?
We started our business in 2008 as we found it difficult sourcing afro hair products from the UK and buying from the US didn’t prove cost effective. Our initial thoughts were to import US products and sell them in the UK, but once we realised there was a gap in the British market for natural hair products we thought why not make our own!
