  • Wash Days


    Of late I have been experiencing the lazy syndrome!! I know right, it sucks big time!!! I kept pushing my wash day to the last minute. I even skipped a wash day… *These are my confessions* That is not good at all and I need to change this ASAP!! HOWEVER… I cannot say that my hair suffered… thank goodness.

My wash days went as follows

Prepoo : using either hot oil or conditioner (it’s random)

Shampoo: Using Design Essentials Almond & Avo Moisturizing and Detangling Sulfate free shampoo

DC: alternating between Joico K pak intense hydrator , Aunt Jackies In control  and ORS Replenishing conditioner

Conditioner: Design Essentials Almond and Aco Moisturizing and Detangling conditioner

Leave In’s: Ultimate Organics Olive Oil Leave in conditioner and Design Essentials Coconut & Monoi Moisture milk creme

Setting: Air drying

  • Styling


I have been experimenting with braid outs and Faux Mohawks lately… I looove Mohawks, They were curly and messy I absolutely loved it… Some people frowns upon my hair lately but hey… It happens, Life goes on and no one died from my hot mess of tresses!

  • Stats


I am currently 15 Weeks post touch up

I have gained some length!!! I was spontaneously taking pics and I realized hey seems like we have a little bit of movement!

For the first time since my journey started I have experienced knotting! And it was at my ends! I found two knots which broke off during my previous wash day! I was sooo super hacked!

Apart from the slight breakage I am very pleased with my hair.

How is you hair doing lately?

Have you experienced Knotting?

How did you overcome it?

    Your hair is growing like weed. Where do you buy the Joico K? Knotting is a coily and kinky hair best friend. I try my best to detangle patiently to minimise the scissor happy hands.

        I think is because texlaxed hair is almost as natural hair.

    Great growth Lebo! Wowzers!
    I discovered knotting since big chopping, I try to detangle gently, if all else fails, I cut!
