Hair Talk: Simple Tips

Although I've done quite a number of hair features in the past (and left the links here on my blog), I guess it's not the same as having a post about my hair on my blog because I still get a lot of questions about my hair. I'm sure I've mentioned a few things in the past but I don't expect every one to go through my whole blog in search of my natural hair tips and care routine... Long.

Before I get into anything serious, I want to let you know that the hair on my hair growing out my scalp is not the same as yours. We are not the same person so we do not have exactly the same hair. Basically, what works for me may not necessarily work for you. So if you do everything I write here in this post (and others after) and you get results you aren't happy with, Eki is not to blame. I'm just sharing MY routine so practice/copy it at your own risk. Also, I've never said I am a natural hair guru because I really am not and I don't know it all, in a few years all I've written here might change because just like you I'm also learning everyday.

I have a lot to say in detail when it comes to my hair so this post will be broken down into several parts over time. For my relaxed/permed hair sisters out there, I'm also working on getting my cousin to share some of her hair secrets as well. She's started paying more attention to her relaxed hair and it's grown so much over the past few years, so hopefully I can get her to share some tips as well.

So let's begin!

This has to be the number one on my list because my hair is always hidden, my cousin Omozo of O'Naturals calls me "a natural in hiding".
Braids and wigs are major for me, I'm not a fan of weaves because I don't like the look of a closed weave and I don't like to leave my natural hair out because it can get damaged, I learnt that the hard way. All the straightening left me with bald spots and then straight hair right in the front, the worst.

More Pink

This has to be one of my favourite pictures 
It's too much pink right?
Lol I love the story behind this outfit because it wasn't planned at all. Usually I have a mental picture of what my outfit is going to look like before taking pictures or going out but this was different and from my last post I really thought I was done with this skirt but here I am repeating it. 
I was in my mum's closet (as I do) and I saw these sandals she's worn in the past. I'd seen them before but today was different, it felt like I'd struck gold. Once I saw them I immediately thought about this outfit but I almost didn't wear it or take pictures because
1. I'd already blogged about this skirt

Pink Orange

This outfit was inspired by one of the pieces from Monique Lhuillier's S/S 2014 collection that Leslie Mann wore for the premiere of The Other Woman here. The collection is the perfect balance of everything I love with lace, prints & colours, applique, classic white and then draping. You can view all that by clicking here. If I could I'd get all 39 looks in my size!
I've always wanted to try an outfit with these colours but I've never been bold enough and now that I have I'm not 100% sure about it but again I don't think it's so bad either. I love the skirt but I don't love it paired with this top, it's just not an outfit I'd like to repeat any time soon but I like the pictures :)
Top: Primark
Linen Skirt: Asos
