Hey lovelies 🙂

Hope you’ve all been awesome! I recently got back home to Nairobi, Kenya. Exams and the school year are over and now we have two months of holiday which I’m really excited for. I have so many exciting ideas and things I want to try out.

Anyway, onto today’s agenda. After not putting up a hair post for the longest time I thought I ought to talk about my recent hair changes. I generally would not call myself the most daring person with hair. I’ve always had it natural and would switch from braids to my natural hair from time to time. One of the reasons for this is that I feel going to the salon in South Africa is a bit too pricy for what you get. I am always not as satisfied as I would be when going to the salon in Kenya, mostly because the skill in Kenya is better and prices are cheaper. However, recently I have been more open to trying out various new hairstyles.

So anyway after having my hair open for a while this semester, I wanted to try something new but with my student budget I was way too broke to go to the salon. I therefore decided to try and do it myself. Luckily I always bring braids from Kenya so I used Afro Kinky braids to braid my own hair. It didn’t even take long  and I really liked the aftermath. Here are a few pictures.





I stayed with the braids on for around three weeks until I was bored again and wanted to try out something new. Ever since my big salsa braids a couple of months ago, I knew big hair was definitely my thing. I thus used the same afro kinky braids by just undoing them and leaving the roots attached to my hair. This was the aftermath which I absolutely loved as well.




Anyway, the big hair won’t really last so I’ll be changing it up again soon. Look out for what I come up with in my next hair post! 🙂 🙂

until next time

      Awww thankyou so much.. to be honest, it was mostly just self taught. I’ve always known how to plait hair from a very young age so braiding came easily.. a lot of trial and error. Though YouTube videos do help

    I must try this. I’m always looking for new hairstyles. But I think I’ll wait for the Nairobi heat to die down.
    Loving your blog by the way.
