I will be a Guest Speaker at Kinks and Curls Expo in Uganda

My natural hair journey has been an experience of self-discovery, self-love and acceptance. It has strengthened me physically, mentally and emotionally.

Initial review of the Perfect Natural Hair Kinky Clip-ins | HerGivenHair

I’ve been feeling myself so much lately, it must be this hair! This hair is giving me Diana Ross vibes.. Yaaaas!! I was super excited when I received it fromΒ HerGivenHair. The package only took 5 days to arrive and was sent via DHL. I received 3 packs of their Kinky Clip-ins in 14 and 16 inches. The hair came well packaged in a sleek box which also contains extra clips and a headband to protect the hair overnight. I also received a brochure with guidelines on how to care for the hair.

We all want our tresses to grow and flourish right? so its important to follow the steps below for a successful protective styling.

My Favorite Natural Hair Products of 2016

I am finally sharing my favorite natural hair products. I have tried out so many products ever since I went natural. Finally, I am happy that my attempt at not being a product junkie in 2016 was successful hence I was able to narrow down my favorite products. They range from shampoos to moisturizers. All these products are readily available in Nairobi and most of all feature some of my favorite local vendors.
