Is your protective style a crutch? The temperature has dropped! It’s now time for winter coats, hats scarves and gloves. It’s that time of the year where we bring out our protective styles in full force. In order to protect our hair from the elements and just for ease during the colder months, protective styling […]
Wash and go: a style I have been curious to achieve since i started transitioning. Yet, it kept alluding me! I have made many attempts using different tips from different natural hair enthusiasts. I still couldn’t achieve it! I decided to give up, I started to believe that perhaps a wash and go was not […]

Marley twists are a protective style which I use regularly. They are my favourite protective style at the moment for when I feel like my hair needs a break or I just want to shake it up a bit. I usually keep them in for 4 weeks. By then I always miss my hair so […]
