The blog is 2 today!

5 Jan

before and after

It’s the blogs second anniversary today.  The first post was on 5 January 2011.  My hair has come a long way since then.  Back then I never thought that with proper care my hair would get to where it is today.  I was willing to try though.  In the two years I have learnt a lot about my hair but I am still learning.  The pic above shows my hair in January 2011 and in November 2012.

I have enjoyed blogging and I think it has given me extra motivation to take care of my hair.  Here’s to many more years!!

      Thanks Eloise. In the first picture I really didn’t even think of my hair practices!

    Happy anniversary and your hair is looking very beautiful. I am proud of you for showing us black women that it can be done. would you please suggest how to stop an itching and flacking scalp. I moisturise using pure castor and coconut oils. I prepoo every week and moisturise my hair everyday using organic root stimulator hair moisturiser. The itching only stops for 2 days after my prepoos. By the way I prepoo using honey and EVOO

      Hi Nozipho
      I suggest you read the original posts I wrote back in January 2011 and read them in order. I go through all these issues as well as how to overcome them. I suspect your issue may be that your hair is dry and needs moisture.

    honestly i would have expected more lenght retention in 2 yrs

    what do u think the biggest issues for you would have been in the 2 years? just so ppl like myself can learn from it.

    btw i think its great that you respond to comments 🙂 i find nowadays most bloggers dont bother to, so well done

      I actually had a cut in Feb 2012 and sort of started over. I was removing the thinner relaxed ends I had after I started texlaxing (deliberately underprocessing) my hair. See the post here –

      As for issues, I think the main concern would be minimising breakage so as to optimise retention and length. I have written several posts on breakage as well as length retention.
