Fill up their Love tanks...

Hi there girlfriends!

   I had carried some negative emotional garbage from childhood. Long story short my childhood was filled with struggles but the truth is we forget the power we have as mothers. Here is the question - what can we do as parents to help encourage and support our children?



One thing I promised to myself is that I never wanted my boy growing up feeling a void, feeling like he does not belong like the way I did. It's amazing how much things that happened in your childhood can impact your life years later.



So I compiled a list that I think we can all strive to do as parents.
I can’t think of a more important gift to give to a child than the ability to think positively. Here are some things I say  I love you  You are sooo funny you always make me laugh! I am so proud of you You are smart  You know what? God took His time creating you... You are God's messenger I love to hear your stories You can be anything that you want to be just believe Its ok to make mistake…

How I do my twists...

Hello again!

 I love twists because they are easy to do and they work for me. Twists look great on everyone and  they are low manipulation.

I start with clean hair always. I thoroughly apply a leave in conditioner. I always twist on damp to almost dry hair. I tried twists on wet hair, I tried the really small twists  until I found what really works for me.

I section my hair into two parts. I then  apply a moisturising cream-  I am currently using African Pride Olive Miracle.  I have never  tried twisting with gel. If you do use gel for twisting  avoid the ones with alcohol in them.  I twist my hair in medium size twists.



 Remember to seal  the ends of your twists and twirl them around your finger. This step is important because it reduces the frizz on the ends of your twists. If your hair starts to dry spray with water. Air dry fully. I leave my twists in for more than three days for a super defined twistout.


Did I mention that twists are super cute too!
How do you rock your twists? F…

So many beautiful naturalistas and so much hairspiration...Nuff said I would like to introduce to you a curlfriend that I met on Instagram - she's the beautiful Queen behind Oh_Fro -  Chisomo Grace Nthulane. 




Natural Alternatives to Cleanse Your Hair

When it comes to wash day, lets admit it, finding products that wash your hair efficiently without stripping it of moisture is not as easy as it is for others. Despite natural hair being natural, its important to understand that more often than not, natural does not necessarily mean using completely natural or organic products  dont get thrown off by the term which …
