Hello my lovelies, it’s been a while since I posted on this blog and I can tell you truthfully I have missed you. It can be incredibly difficult at times to think of things to blog about but I still think there is definitely a place for MLHJ. So I’m now going to attempt to catch you up on all the goings on over the last 4 months or so.
I’ve decided to grow my hair again. Yeah yeah I know I said I’d wait until I’d got all my kids out of the way but sod it, I miss my hair and I’m bored as all heck. The ends are still blonde but will be trimmed off over time as I have no plans to re-colour. I’m presently stuck in that horrible place somewhere between a TWA and enough length to actually style your hair. I HATE this place, I’m currently living in wash and gos with a headband and I’m frustrated.
I think I’m going to try and wait this period out using wigs and crochet braids. My lovely friend Andree Marie is currently re-tooling this wig for me into a lace front wig and I’ll also get a few more wigs made up I think.
On the product front I’m still loving the Trepadora range in particular the Trepadora Quinoa Repair Deep Conditioner and I’m testing out the Shea Moisture Professional line so I’ll keep you guys updated on how I get on with it.
Miss E is now almost two years old, she’s walking talking and having fun being a right old diva. Her hair has grown so much since her big cut a year ago, we are very close to being able to put it up into a single bun. The back of her hair is still much shorter than the front though. I have come to the realisation that Miss E’s hair cannot handle any sort of tension, whether it be braids or ponytails and canerows are a big no no. Her current regimen involves weekly co-washing and a shampoo wash every two weeks. I keep her hair in mini single twists during the week and this has helped her edges immensely.
I use a mix of products from the Trepadora, Curls and Just For Me ranges. My HG products for her are Trepadora Papaya Slip Taming Potion, which gives a strong but flexible hold and makes her twists last all week and Just For Me Nourishing Detangler, which moisturises her hair and makes detangling a breeze. I plan to do a more in depth review of my fav products for Miss E’s hair so look out for that.
My life has been pretty hectic over the last few months actually. For those of you following me over at www.tolaokogwu.com, you’ll know that I wrote my first children’s book and I’m in the process of self-publishing it. The book is called Daddy Do My Hair? Beth’s Twists. Y’all know I had to write about hair! It will be available from November the 1st and I’ll write about the book and publishing process in more detail in due course.
