Welcome to my new blog!
I’m still passionate about my hair but I love other things too and I’d like to share them with you more. I’ve been thinking about this for awhile now and working tirelessly behind the scenes to get my online space looking like a better reflection of me. In doing so, I realised that the little voice in my head, well actually quite a big voice, was writing posts and videos that had nothing to do with hair.
Thanks again, for reading, following, commenting, emailing, liking and well, supporting me and Fro on this now apparent endless hair journey. I had no idea that sharing my hair story would’ve encouraged some of you with yours. My day is always made and I’m more humbled whenever I receive a heartfelt message from you saying that my story has saved your afro or has helped you teach your daughter how to love her hair. And so I thought, maybe there are other women out there also about to embark on motherhood for the first time and have no idea what they’ve gotten themselves into. I identified this feeling as something I’ve felt before, it was just before I jumped and made my My Fro & I public. I had started it to document my natural hair journey and now I’m embarking on a completely new journey, that I’d like to do the same with. And if I can help even one more woman in other parts of her life while I’m sharing mine, well that just makes so much sense for me. Just in case, you know, you’re also a working mom with a baby, trying to figure out your life with this new thing called motherhood being a part of your reality. How do I dress my baby bump? How can I change my hair routine now I’m a mom? What’s my new beauty routine? Why am I struggling with breastfeeding? Is my baby going to remember me when I go back to work?
I’m so excited to share this new chapter with you.
What does this new year mean to you?
