Flat Twist Updo – Sparkles Salon Uganda Review

This is a series that I’m absolutely excited to start. A while back, I informed my Instagram family that I will start doing salon reviews mainly because many of you wanted to know the best salons to visit that cater to our natural hair struggles. Starting us up is Sparkles Salon located in Kampala, Uganda. I visited Uganda a few months ago for Natural Hair Uganda’s annual Kinks and Curls expo where I was a guest speaker. The event was out of this world and I had a great time making new friends. Catch a glimpse of what went down here.

Rock your Afro with Confidence

It’s been 3 years since I made the transition to embrace my natural hair texture. Embarking on my natural hair journey has helped to shape me up to the person I’ve now become. I’m bold enough to accept my hair for what it is in its kinky state. I will be honest with you guys, people’s negative opinions about my hair does not really concern me. When I did the big chop, I was really bothered with what people would think, would they accept me? Would I feel beautiful?

My Hair Update

1 year and 5 months have passed since I got my tapered cut and my hair has been flourishing . Its the healthiest it has ever been and I am very excited about that – Health over length any time! Through out my journey I have come to understand my hair, what it likes and what it does not like. I have thin hair strands and I avoid putting a lot of tension on my hair. I believe analyzing your hair condition is the foundation of your healthy hair journey. This will also help you create a regimen that suits your hair needs.

Launch of Dark and Lovely Au Naturale in Kenya

A few weeks ago, I attended the launch of Dark and Lovely Au Naturale range of products in Karen. For years I have watched my fellow hair bloggers in the US rave about the variety of Au Naturale collections but those products were not available in our Kenyan market. Dark and Lovely have been making moves in the natural hair business since 2013 when they created a line for natural hair called Au Naturale. I first inquired about Au Naturale after seeing naturalistas in South Africa using the products and I am so happy that they were planning to launch the collection in Kenya – better late than never!

Love is here to stay ft LOVE IS PROJECT

Love is a feeling that really can’t be described. It’s one of the best feelings in the world and something that makes you smile all the time. Love is a feeling of deep affection, it’s honest and pure and I get to celebrate it every single day.


I had the pleasure of being a part of the Love is Project Campaign last month. I first learnt about Love is project in May 2015 when I met the founder Chrissie Lam.  The story behind this project began in 2012 after Chrissie founded the Supply change, an initiative that connects artisan groups with various brands and creates products for collaborations.
