I have done a few new things to my hair. I once made an avocado, honey and olive oil mask, which I must say was absolutely awesome!  

 I also did a rod set on freshly washed hair. 

  And I have started using the shea moisture purification mask  and the shea moisture deep treatment mask  as well. I really love the moisture retention mask, it is quite moisturizing but the purification mask feels like it strips my hair. It is very drying.

It is very difficult to get great natural hair products in Canada. They are basically nonexistent here and very expensive to order online. I am sometimes charged an extra customs fees when they are delivered to my door. Here are some pictures of my hair and some various styles I have done in the past few months.

Stay tuned for my next blog which will feature a few wigs I have boug



It has been a difficult transition migrating to a new county. But being the resilient person I am the challenges are slowly being conquered. So what's new with me? Well I got married in July, I started working in June and so I have been so busy that honestly I have neglected my hair. I did a light edge trimming a few weeks ago. Not sure how effective that was. Overall my hair is in relatively good shape. Most recently I blow-dried and flat-ironed my hair. It was a bit of a disaster to be honest, I thought my hair would have been long enough by now to get easily styled into a small bun. But it was anything but easy!. I eventually succeeded but I was definitely not pleased with it. The ends of my hair felt thicker than the rest and proved very difficult to straighten. I did use lots of heat protecting serum which really protected my hair. (I washed my hair after a few days and it went back to being curly with no straight hairs poking out which means I did not have any heat damage…
