Happy New Year!


Can I still say that? Well, I just did lol.

So 2015 is upon us and with a new year comes resolutions. I actually stopped believing in resolutions a few years ago. I think that if you want to change anything or be better in anything you should do it any time in the year. So um, I kinda have about 10 things I’d like to do or do better this year. But I figured if there’s any one thing I want to do with my hair this year it’s this: Have fun with it. I think I’m off to a good start…

Last year, my focus was very obviously my wedding hair and I spent the entire year in a mix of different protective styles to grow it out so I could have more options when it came time to style it for the big day. NB: wedding pics coming very soon!

A recap:

After I got engaged in 2013, I decided that I needed to be a bit more disciplined in my protective hair styling for two reasons;

1. To help maintain length to (widen my options) especially after having a second chop in late 2013. Mission accomplished! My hair is now past my shoulders when fully straightened ๐Ÿ˜€
2.  To relieve myself of precious time so I wouldn’t need to worry about styling my hair everyday. My protective styling routine was a huge time saver and allowed me to dedicate my time on planning the wedding.

I did a total of four protective styles last year, all lasting 6 – 9 weeks with about a 2 – 3 week break in between the styles. I didn’t notice much breakage from installing or uninstalling the styles. My favourite one? Definitely the braids. I’m so glad I did them, they were so practical and fun. I’ve had my hair out from December 10th so it’s been over a month. I’ve been off the radar but have been keeping in touch with my Instagram followers. And #todaysfro is very much my favourite series of all my platforms. So I felt it fair to share what Fro and I have been up to.
