Coming Soon to Hairducation

Coming soon

I never intended to start a hair care blog.
I was just another girl with hair issues when I began my  hair journey.  But as my hair grew longer, people around me noticed and started asking for advice and tips for their own hair.

I am always happy to answer hair related questions however it is hard to break down all the aspects of a hair journey in brief conversations with people who approach me. I decided that the best way to overcome this problem was to create my personal online hair care guide and now I can direct whoever approaches me here.

The truth is I love talking about hair and this blog gives me a perfect excuse to do so in a clear and concise manner.

There are so many topics and information I want to share and discuss such as:

Relaxer Do’s and Don’ts –  a detailed guide and practical tips to help prevent hair loss as a result of relaxing.
Divide and Conquer– why you should do everything to your hair in sections and how it minimises breakage
How to combine healthy hair care practices with wearing extensions – Three part series

Why we have to make a conscious effort to grow our hair unlike other races
Why black hair appears to stop growing at shoulder length
How much of hair length and thickness is down to genes
Why shiny hair isn’t the same as healthy hair

Top 10 things which damage black hair
Top 10 hair inspirations -ladies whose hair made my jaw hit the floor and inspired me to begin my own hair journey
Top 5 mistakes I made at the beginning of my hair journey

Guest features

Style trends
Celeb looks


I hope a few of the above topics grab your attention and that you will find them informative, motivational and entertaining.

I am so excited get started so please visit the Hairducation blog home page for regular blog posts.

    Hey dearest, reading your blog is most inspiring the dedication and perseverance shown.
    Just a few questions that pop to mind with the regime you have adopted and how its worked for you.

    1) Obviously your hair was chemically relaxed (for want of a better description) before you started your hair journey. Is it right to then assume that your methods would also work for someone who has natural hair i.e the using of the wigs may not be practical if the wearer’s hair is expected to show? Won’t the contrast be immediately seen?

    2) Do you create wigs – bespoke now to meet the need of ladies in category described above (natchi hair – loool)

    I appreciate that everyone’s hair journey will have to be tailored to their hair type

    Thanks in advance for your response.

    Best regards

      Dear Taiwo, I truly appreciate your comment. Now let me try to answer your questions.

      1) The method I use (good products and good hair care practices, including protective styling with wigs) is also used by several natural haired ladies. I have come across several natural ladies on the internet that have their own version of a wig based hair regimen. They either wear full wigs where their own hair is 100% hidden or wigs with very tight curls and try as much as possible to blend the front of their hair with the wigs (sometimes this is achieved by putting bantu knots at the front of their hair to create curls).

      2) My sister and I have been on the hunt for hair wefts which matches natural hair texture as this would allow us to create u part wigs for our natchi sisters. 
      We have recently found a company that creates natural hair wefts extentions, however like most new and innovative products, it is very expensive!!! Hair by Type 4 are trying to see how best to meet this need.
      So the short answer is that we are working it.

      I hope I have answered your questions, please let me know if you have any more.
