About

Aisha O’Reilly 

Hi, welcome to my beloved space on the internet. I’m a young African woman who loves hair, beauty and being a mom, amongst other things. My aim is to inspire and encourage fellow women by giving them a peek into my life, with all of its ups, downs, questions and adventures.

My previous blog My Fro & I followed my natural hair experience and became the biggest natural hair blog in South Africa. Like many Black women, I had a deeply negative relationship with my hair. I didn’t feel beautiful unless my hair was straight and silky. After bad hair decisions and hair loss at a salon, I realised that I had an unhealthy view of my hair. I decided to go natural the next day. I’m continuing to share my natural hair story here, as well as sharing more of my life. My Fro & I evolved into Aisha & Life. I felt very alone in pregnancy and new motherhood. I share my story for young moms to feel less alone in this rollercoaster journey of being a mom.
