The Denman Brushes

Hey y'all,
So I got me a Denman Brush the D1 All Black Extra Soft Pin styling Hair Brush

Description: Medium size brush with 8 rows of extra soft smooth, round-ended nylon pins.
Total 8 inches long with a 4 inch handle, 1.5 inches at its widest.
The famous Denman anti-static  rubber pad provides maximum grip and control during blow drying for smoothing, shaping and polishing the hair.

So was wondering what the hype was about this brushes but decided to buy one anyway to help with my de-tangling issues..and WHAT!!! I LOOOOOOOVE helps de-tangle without the snagging and breaking and the results are so amazing..SMH I could have saved so much hair and heartache if I had bought this in the beginning..Anywho I bought mine at Lipstix Sarit Center ground floor for 1250/=
I bought this paticular one because it had only 8 rows which is not as dense as the others so it would not snag or pull out my hair and also the fact that the bristles were soft..Please research you type of hair and the best Denman brush to use on your hair.
Has anyone else tried this brush?

Be blessed y'all

Keep the faith and Keep learning!

wrapped it up while Dc'ing

Hey y'all,
So I just read a post on one of my fav blog Curly Nikki that truly resonated with me and took me back to a post I did awhile back about hating on your hair. Well I've been guilty of this again and this post spoke to me about how I keep blaming my hair for not cooperating while I was the one that needed to apologise to it for not listening to's the thing

My hair needs moisture and a lot of moisture to be soft, to grow to be healthy. It needs protective styling and low manipulating to retain growth. Have I been doing this consistently? NO!! Here's where I've been going wrong..I seem to be stuck in a rut of a TWA routine..How you ask..well when one is in the TWA sage you can just smooth product and oil on your hair and work it in with just swirling your fingers through your hair. Now my hair is growing out of the TWA stage and I'm still doing the same..I'm still de-tangling the same I'm still manipulating my hair way too its a wonder why my hair is like "I ain't having none of that ish!!!" and is dry especially the ends and is still breaking and shedding even after a big trim..I need to do a check list and even keep a journal on what I'm doing to identify what it wants and doesn't want..especially now that I'm so busy..end of year is crazy workwise.

Things I need to incorporate into my regime

  • more baggying especially for my ends
  • de-tangling  and washing in sections
  • applying product in sections (mucho important)
  • low manipulation styling
With that said I need to constantly remind myself that I'm still learning my hair..hope for those that are having the same issues can also learn to change things up and keep trying to do what is needed for their hair despite what is going on around's a link to the post

Happy hair people

My attempt at African Threading

Hey all,
So after doing my daughter's hair over the weekend I decided to try out the African Threading method to stretch my hair. But first I needed to wash and DC my hair so started by pre-pooing with a mixture of Lory's Extreme de frizz cream and olive oil

I covered my hair in a plastic cap and kept it on for 2 hours after that I spritzed some water and started to de-tangle with a wide toothed comb. I must say I was impressed with the slip of this conditioner, de-tangling was so much easier and I didn't get as much shed hair and breakage as I normally do. I then shampooed and then I mixed some aloe vera gel, honey into my DC Organics cholesterol Tea Tree oil

I kept this on for one hour then I washed it out, conditioned and then after adding some leave in and sealing with castor oil I parted my hair and started to thread my hair. I tell you it was not an easy task but here is what I came up with

I had an early morning so I kept them on just wrapped a scarf around my hair and rocked my twists..
Had an early morning so just scarved it :)
