Where are you going?

Hey World,

I have been watching my hair fall off my hair at an alarming rate. Where are you going my dear hair? I keep looking for ways to hide the damage being done. 


Well, other days I just dare to bare:


I wear my baldness out like a mother’s badge of honour. I’d forgo having hair on my edges for my sweet Lausanne any day! 

In other news, my baby was baptized this month:


As I type this, I have not washed my hair and I have work tomorrow. Can someone beg these kids for me? It’s going to be wash midnight and not wash day. Wish me luck please!

Yes, this is such a random post.

Time is key 

Hey World,

Let’s go straight to the point. Time is very important for natural hair. Last week, for the first time ever, I took my time to properly detangle my hair. It was important for me to do so because my hair is shedding at 1 million strands per second (yes, I’m overreacting) due to postpartum shedding. When this happens, my hair gets tangled up and I spend too much time trying to comb it. 

While in the shower, I sectioned my hair and washed as usual. However after applying conditioner, I took time to gently rid my hair of the shed hair (Lausanne and Marcello allowed me to do this). When twisting my hair, I could easily run a comb through without any problems and I didn’t spend much time. 

I hope I always have time when washing my hair to repeat this. Please wish me luck!

Still on the edge(s)…

Hey everyone,

So guess what is still trending in my life? My edges and its successful attempt at falling out. I’m still watching my hair fall out and I don’t think there is anything I can do about it. 


On a lighter note, it’s summer time and I have put my Shea Butter away. Avocado oil is doing enough for me and I don’t need my Shea Butter at the moment. I will bring it back out when the weather gets cooler. 

So my current hair regimen is:

(1) Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner on freshly washed hair. (2) Avocado oil. That’s it!!!

This helps my hair stay soft and moisturised for at least two days. I refresh during the week with a spray of water from my wonderful spray bottle followed by Avocado Oil. The end!!!!

How big is it?

Hey World,

Have you ever searched for something and when you found it you realized it was more than you needed? Let me explain. 

I have a big head. Yes it’s true. No you cannot say it. But just know it’s true. I also have big hair…yes you can say it. This has made my search for the perfect shower cap difficult. For a long time I’ve battled with shower caps that only protect three-quarters of my hair and the rest is up to me to protect my hair by carefully showering…if that is possible. Anyway, my search led me to Amazon where wonderful things happen. Guess what? I found one. 


Let’s just say it’s more than I need. This thing is HUGE. Gigantic. Enormous. But it protects my hair no matter which style it’s in. 

I just wanted to share this with you. 
Always me,

Cantu Or Cantu?

Hey World,

This is a story about Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner and Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner. No I did not make a mistake. This is a case of Cantu or Cantu? Let me explain 

I bought my usual Cantu Shea Butter Leave In (Cantu no. 1) from a certain store and it finished. Then I got another one from a different store (Cantu no. 2). There was a problem. Cantu 2 seemed better than Cantu 1. With Cantu 2, I noticed it felt slick compared to Cantu 1. Same container, same everything. 

This is a case of “fall back and trust me to catch you”. Which one should I trust? Which one will catch me? I have a feeling I should trust Cantu 2. Was any of them tampered with? I hope it’s just a case of change in formula. I no longer remember how it’s supposed to feel like on my hair. I just know now that one is slippery and the other is not. One allows me detangle with ease and the other doesn’t. 

Has this happened to anyone else? I’m just rambling here. Bear with me because I’m confused. 

Oh yeah, my edges are still falling off …


Always me,

Bantu and Braid United

Hey World,

A lot happened to me during the weekend. I will only mention the hair related one (a work related one has been revealed on Instagram).

It all started with washday. I decided to wash my hair on Saturday morning (Lausanne really decided for me). After washing, I kept my hair in a towel wrap till evening. This was not by choice. I just had to find time to continue. Anyway, I moisturised as usual with my TLC method and decided to twist and wrap in Bantu knots. Good decision? I think NOT. 

Fast forward to Sunday evening. I was getting ready for Mass and decided to unravel my Bantu knots. I imagined my flowing curls moving in the wind…yes wind 😁. Reality set in after I had unraveled all the twists. My hair was still damp. I didn’t even wait for the dampness to take its toll on my hairstyle. I braided my hair in two, pinned the braids behind my head and went to Church. 

Fast fast forward to Monday morning (today), I unraveled my braids and loved what I saw. A Bantu and Braid United hairstyle. 


My break is over. 

Always me,

Sandeey
