New Hair Style Series


Hello ladies,

Last year, I forced myself to get out of my hairstyling laziness/rut by starting a bun of the month series.
I tried to come up with simple and easy to do bun hairstyles each month that were different from the everyday super plain ones I usually wear.

The bun of the month series went down well and this year I’ve decided to start an up-do of the month series.
Now here’s the thing….. I love up-does…. but I love them more on other ladies.  I actually do like creating them but the reality is that I will probably keep wearing my buns or faux bobs when I have my hair out because I prefer them for myself.   I’ll probably save the up-does for special occasions.

And on that note, here is the first up-do of the series.

Please look past the facial expression and focus on the height of the style :)


I absolutely loved how much height the front/top of the style had (thanks to my new growth and all the texture left in my texlaxed hair). I don’t know how I managed to forget to take a picture of the back of it.   I’ll do better ladies, I promise.

Please come back soon for the educative post about how scalp massaging boosts hair growth.

    Hi Lade, I have been reading abt ur hair journey n ave decided to take up a routine and start caring for myself… I can’t seem to leave my hair down since my hair seems soo thin (maybe because my hair is soo soft.) Wish I could get a remedy… so am trying this perhaps chance may be on my side…any advice?

      Hello Rhoda

      welcome to the hair journey life. I hope it goes well for you.
      The density ( overall thickness) of our hair is determined by genetics but many ladies on a hair journey notice that their hair gets thicker with time…not because their genetics has changed but because they are experiencing less breakage and finally get the thickness they were actually born with. I hope that makes sense.
      My advice is that you make sure your regimen is working well for your hair ( preventing damage and breakage) and with time you should hopefully have thicker hair by eliminating breakage.
      Hope that helps
