Natural Hair Gels Vs Creams

NDo you prefer to use gels or creams on your natural hair?

When I started my natural hair journey, everybody was talking about Eco Styler gel. I went and bought a huge container convinced that all my styling woes were over. I used it the first time and got a slap across my face. I tried it a second, third and fourth time and finally accepted that it might not be for me.…

I Am Not My Hair

Have you ever felt like different people attach your identity to different things?

I definitely have at one point or the other. The result was that I ended up feeling disjointed – like I wasn’t one person and everyone knew a version of me. The same happened when I was blogging on two different domains. That changed when we moved here and I explained that in this post.…

Product Haul: 5 Natural Hair Cleansers

Hello lovelies!

I should start by saying that I’m NOT a natural hair guru. In fact, I’m far from it. I started this blog as a way to free mwananchi wa kawaida from my random hair conversations on the streets of Nairobi. Someone would say, “Your hair looks nice” and 5 hours later, they would still be listening to me going on about anything and everything hair-related.…
