What's Up with My Hair?

 Hi Doves!

As promised, here is the update on my hair.
I'm still wigging it. I really love the access I have to my hair whenever I want it. At the same time it's in a protective hair style. Double plus! So i'm actually looking into making an afro wig. Like a weave I previously had done. Just need to purchase the hair and wig cap and I'll be good to go.
Man I miss that weave ...

Wash Day

Hi Doves!

Hope you are all well. I don't post my wash days that often , but I think I will from now on.

Anyways this wash day was very aloe vera themed for some reason. It just "happened" to me, I kid you not.

Africans Hating on African Americans?

Warning, controversial content ahead. *Don't crucify me*

Hi Doves!

How are we today? I was doing my regular blog browsing when I came accross a post which caught my attention. The author lives in the US and went to home to Nigeria and Ghana for a visit. She is also a natural hair blogger. When she got to Nigeria and Ghana she was faced with the usual "perm your hair" "how do you make your hair curl like that" "your hair is unmanageable cause it is natural" comments, and of course the rough-handed hair stylists. Now this is a throw back post from last year.The blogger stopped blogging for a while and got back to it in March or May this year. 

She noted that in Nigeria she was faced with more resistance to her hair, as compared to Ghana where people were more receptive and open to it. To round off her post, she stated that overall though, the perceptions of Africans towards natural hair is improving and is not all bad. 
Now to the crux of this post. A commenter stated that the reason why she met more resistance in Nigeria was that Africans hate African Americans and so they were negative towards her. She also added that there are more African Americans in Ghana, where the commenter lives therefore there was less resistance to the blogger's hair there as opposed to in Nigeria.

Hidden dangers..

Hi doves, how are you?

I recently purchased some claw clamps to help keep my hair sectioned while I style, wash or manipulate it. Very handy dandy tools, took me a while to finally get them. Anyway as I was choosing them I noticed that they had some raised bits of plastic. Almost every one I picked up had some raised plastic from the manufacturing process.

Length Check and Setting Length Goals

Hi doves!

As promised, here is my length check. I couldn't believe it myself when I did a preliminary check. I'm so excited. Drum roll...
