MARCH 2016 PROTECTIVE STYLE.

05/03/2016 I washed my hair without detangling(no comb ,no fingers) , in fact I pre-pooed  before shamppooing.

YES YOU CAN BAKE TOO!!! BLACK FOREST CAKE

For my 6th birthday daughter , I wanted to bake a well presented birthday cake with CREAM , I can bake but nice cakes decorating have always intimidated me . I am not a huge fan of icing cakes or too much heavy cream on a cake but let agree Icing is a way to go for making fancy cake designs. Back home , there is a bakery called “LA BRIOCHE” , it has been there since am a child so I guess more than 25 and folks they have the best pastries.In Zambia I was looking for a similar bakery and specially for cake but I have never found or been satisfied with...

FROM LONG TO SHORT LENGTH!!! What do you think????

My Hair needed a ReVamp so I decided to pay a visit to my hair stylist and asked her to cut them short to achieve a sort of bob cut .  My head could feel so light sometimes women for the sake of beauty we endure a lot (Who run the world ???Girls!!! yeah we do )I really love the cut even though Hubby  preferred me with long ones , sorry baby too late but still beautiful I look. 🙂So if you want to change your current look with your box braids, don’t hesitate  just take a pair of scissors  if you can do it alone at home ,if not ask someone for help.I will be...

MY JOURNEY

My Natural Journey, I would like to share my brief story regarding my hair.  I have had natural for the last 13 years as I lived in Cracow, Poland where African hair saloons were non-existent   even now to a certain extent. For summer holidays, I used to go back home to Congo  and  usually will have my hair done in mini box braids to keep them longer  to avoid to look for somebody to style my hair once back to Cracow. That holiday had my hair braided and kept my mini braids for almost 6 months. I relaxed the root while still having braids in as was the trend in...
