It's OK - Hair Edition

No one is perfect and everyone is different. On hair journeys, we will have similarities but the differences will also abound. Sometimes we are made to feel that what we are doing isn't right or that there is a better way to skin the cat. I'm here to reassure you that there is no right way to eat spaghetti and that it's OK...




  • to not wash your hair every single week. We know wash days can be a chore, so if you're having a lazy week and feel like skipping wash day this time around, go ahead.
  • to use heat every now and then
  • to forever relax your hair if that's your preference
  • to use weaves as protective styles (just not those thigh length ones, I hate those lol)
  • to long-term protective style (without "getting to know your hair") as long as you damn well please, as long as you care for your hair beneath
  • to buy every product in the store until you find the 'right one'
  • to stalk all the blogs, forums, and youtube channels you like to find hair inspiration
  • to enjoy your hair every once in a while by NOT protective or low manipulation styling
  • to trim once a month or once a year
  • to chase length
  • to rock your hair in it's natural state
  • to do whatever you want with your hair as long as it works for you :-)

  1. I love that you post everyday. Your hair is beautiful. I live in the states and I am still transitioning after 26 months post relaxer. I relaxed for 25 years and loved it, but my hair never looked like yours! Keep doing you, boo!
