Hair Me Out

Natural Hair: Expectation Vs Reality

How many times do you try out something with this perfect picture in your head and then end up with the blurred version of it?

I’ve been wanting to try out simple, short-lived protective styles this year but haven’t gotten round to it for various reasons. Finally, I decided to kick off the challenge with a flat twist using Afro Kinky hair braids.…

Masks and Rinses Part 1: Henna for Natural Hair

Hello lovelies!

Welcome to the first week of having two posts up. I love tutorials as much as the next natural but I prefer to have helpful information that will help me maintain healthy hair practices. These two conflicting needs informed the decision to post twice a week. I think I am excited. To be honest, I am excited and scared: excited because YAY let’s do this and scared because it is definitely a challenge to consistently deliver.…

Bantu Knot Out on Dry Medium-Length Hair

Hello lovelies!

Here’s to hoping that you have had a great two weeks. I missed you guys last week. I was trying to work on a surprise but it seems that it will have to be delayed a while longer. 🙁

Now, onto the business of the day…

After the flexirod post, I was lost for how to style my hair before I put it in another (relatively) long-term protective style.…

Bella’s Day Out – Wakanda Edition

Sunday afternoons are for naps – very long, uninterrupted naps.

You get home from church, head straight to the kitchen to re-heat leftovers, eat slowly as you flip through television channels or pretend to catch up on downloaded TV shows or movies. As you masticate (I had to 😀 ) that last bite, you plop yourself on the couch for some much-needed R&R.…

5 Ways to Style Long Braids and Conrows

Hello lovelies! I hope your week has been great and productive.

Kama kawaida, I will jump right into it.

One of the challenges I have faced when it comes to blogging is taking nice photos. While the rest of the world on IG has figured out angles and filters, I’m here trying to get ‘postable’ photos for the blog, that is, at least those that capture all angles of Bella.…

Protective Styles – Conrows & Braids

Hello lovelies! I hope you had a great week and that your manes are flourishing.

My good friends know that the last thing I think about is going to a salon. In fact, the last time I went to a salon for braiding was in the beginning of 2015.  There are a couple of reasons for this. Top of the list is that I will save every shilling I can.…

Overflow…

Last week we touched on love and how our love for others must flow from the love of Christ. This week we catch a glimpse of another kind of overflow.

Picture this: A lecturer always walks into class with only the knowledge that he acquired during his undergraduate studies. This means that all the information he relays to students from different classes is the same.…

Mikalla Hair Event Review

Hello lovelies!

Seeing how we have been on some ‘more serious’ stuff over the past few weeks, today we can do something fun. Donge?

I’ve been meaning to plug into the natural hair community more this year, especially through hair events near me. So when my friend, Maureen, invited me for the Mikalla hair event at Mama Rocks Kilimani, I knew I had to go.…
