Hi people, what's been on?

I've been so busy of late that the only thing I do with my nights is SLEEP. That doesn't stop me from sharing what's been on hairwise on Instagram.

I was tagged by Freda to confess all the sins I've committed with my natural hair! Here's the good, bad and ugly things I've done!

1. I've relaxed my hair.  Back in secondary school, my edges refused to behave so I had the brilliant idea to relax them with a relaxer....*face palm*

2. I've completely shaved off said edges thrice. Once after the ill fated relaxing (edges felt weird) ,after it became patchy due to tension alopecia from ghana weaving and after I decided I didn't need a widow's peak and irregular hairline......guys do it and it looks good nawww....

3. I hennaed and dyed my hair chemically two weeks apart....I almost dyed it purple but settled for a 'safe' shade of coppery red.

4. I don't always sleep in a satin bonnet...sometimes I don't even know where it is!

5. I use a steam iron to straighten my hair when I'm in a hurry...please don't ask me how...*coversface*

6. When you see me in buns, just know I didn't know what to do with my hair....same with a fro.

7. My pet peeve is oily hair/scalp...freaks me out...I just think 'mmanu...pimples.... mmanu'....this comes from someone doing the Indian Oiling Method...smh.
*mmanu- Igbo word for word for bacteria/fungi loaded grease!

8. I'm not sentimentally or emotionally attached to my hair....strange but true...this blog is the only reason I haven't been scissors happy.

9. I'm a lazy natural. I cut corners where I can.

10. I've done one million twists (pin sized ) on my hair and had it in for two months!

  1. FUN!!! I'm most definitely going to, just dunno whether I'll do it on my blog or AN yet. Stay tuned...

  2. Lmao! I am shocked! I never saw #5 coming! I always thought you followed like every "rule" of natural hair lol. Glad I tagged you.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. You're welcome. Hmmm...what did they say about rules and being broken ;)

  3. Yikes these curl confessions hehehe. The henna and dye caught me off guard. Im also surprised you're not that attached to your hair. What an interesting read! :-)

    1. Lol! Thanks o! I see my hair as an accessory...and it can change anytime. Being attached to it will limit my styling.

  4. A couple of people have put up theirs on AN - 1 video and 1 written post.

    1. OOhhh...saw them....this confession ish is fun o!


    We're doing them at different times during the month. Decided to put mine on AN exclusively, instead of my blog.


    1. Thanks Berry on the update of the africanuralistas team. My my we've all been naughty naturalistas except Ebun! Lol!

    This steam iron thing seems legit oh. You're like the 3rd person I've heard/read saying this!
    This was fun! Thank you for tagging me! I need to go think of all my sins now!
