Natural Hair Journey

Fulani Inspired Braids

At times a slight change helps settle the turmoil.

Hello!

First off, I’d love to thank each and every one of you who voted for me, we didn’t win, but I’m thankful and proud that I got nominated. Next step, is to keep working hard and putting a smile on someone’s face. 🙂

Secondly, I have honestly come to the stage with my hair where I’m bored with her and before I do something drastic, that I may or may not regret, I have decided to do a few protective styles.

For starters, I decided to do the lines and box braids. I’m pretty sure most of us remember having this style growing up and during the holidays, we would march to the salon and ask for “Half lines, Half rastas” Oh, the good old days 😀

I used three packets of Darling’s Elegant Braid in Number 1/350, a few rubber bands for the box braids and plenty of beads just to style up the do.
You can get all these supplies from any beauty store.

I’m excited and a bit relaxed that I don’t have to bother with my hair at all, plus, it doesn’t hurt that the hair is light and I see myself having the style in for another two week or three, who knows? 🙂

Here is a quick video on how I was able to achieve this look.

Are you currently protective styling? Are you and your hair on good terms?
Let me know.

Love,

My Style

GRWM |Darling Kenya Product Launch

Step out of your comfort zone baby, that’s where all the fun is.

Hello,
One of my goals of this year was to step out of my comfort zone and last week Thursday, I had the opportunity to do so with Nurtured Knotts at the Darling Kenya product launch at Sankara.

I don’t know about you, but the first 2 months of 2018 have been amazing for me so far and I am sending you the vibes I have, so that your year can be just as amazing or even better.

First thing that came into my mind was what will I wear, I own nothing formal or elegant, I seriously need to revamp my whole wardrobe.
Then 2 hours to the event that’s when I came up with this ensemble.
And let’s just note that this is the only time I am last minute, when it comes to my outfit.

Case and point, Hairitage Chronicles is on Saturday and my outfit is being made in less than 3 days.
Please pray for me. :’-(

Now, you see how everything just came together? Kris was also just amazed and had to pick up his jaw. Hahahahaha.
I was so comfortable and felt like an adult, boss lady who know’s what she is doing. 😀
All I want now is to live in pants like this, high waisted and long, because yaaaaaaas.

I was also able to film myself getting ready and got a few clips from the event.
Here you go;

Let me know;
Do you plan your outfits or you just wing it?

Love,
Jo.♥
