Chickpea Patties

Hello everyone πŸ™‚ ,

It has been a while, I hope all is well. So I am back with a food related post. As some of you may know, I have been off meat for a while and I have been looking for Β some vegetarian / pescaterian meals to try out. I came across the chickpea patties and decided to try it out.

I really loved how it turned out and I am happy with the taste. This way I am in control of what I put in my body, in terms of the ingredients. I hope some of you try it out, it’s a really simple recipe and you are free to choose what type of seasoning you prefer. It doesn’t get better that this πŸ™‚ ❀ ❀ ❀

It’s been 4 years!!!

Hi friends, πŸ™‚

I hope you missed me πŸ˜€ Β I recently did another protective style, which also happens to be my favourite hairstyle. So what hairstyle is it? you may ask. It’s mini braids ❀ ❀ ❀ I have been doing this hairstyle since my hair got long enough to plait. Back then I was not concerned about how crazy I may look. Come to think of it, I still don’t mind what people may think of my hair or me πŸ™‚

To prep for my hairstyle, I deep conditioned my hair first the washed and conditioned it. I had my hair in 4 to 6 plaits (to stretch my hair overnight), moisturised it with shea butter and called it a day. The next day I undid the plaitsΒ  finger detangled each section then twisted them up. I sectioned my hair into 4 and worked on one section at a time when doing my mini braids, applying Aunt Jackie’s Β instant detangling therapy and shea butter to each mini section before braiding (plaiting). This was the finished look πŸ™‚

heatless stretched mini braids

I could not believe how long my hair looked without blow drying or using any type of heat on it before braiding. It’s been 4 good years of hair growth and learning and I look forward to many more years.

Chunky Twists

Hi friends, πŸ™‚

I’m back with another hair related post, as you already know based on the title, my current protective style is chunky twists. I was not prepared to do mini twists because I did not feel like sitting down for that. My motto when it comes to my hair is “the less time it takes, the better” πŸ˜€ Β This motto is only relevant for this situation, so if it changes don’t be surprised.

Anyway, this is how I did my hair, really simple. Enjoy ❀ ❀ ❀

African threading Update

Hi friends, πŸ™‚

So I’m back with an update on the African threading that I did a while ago. I had the threading for 2 weeks. I did not have any problems with breakage. I moisturised my hair regularly with water and castor oil. I ended up with a look similar to what I would get if I did a blowout. So for those with tight curls who may be looking for ways to stretch their hair without heat, this is definitely a good way to do so ❀ ❀

African threading

Hi friends, πŸ™‚

From my last post, you will recall that I am currently doing a 6 month protective style challenge. One of the rules is to stay away from heat, and having tightly curled hair I prefer to work on stretched hair. Now that I cannot use the blow dryer I have to find other ways to stretch my hair.

So I decided to do the African threading method to stretch my hair. The great thing about this method is that it has multiple benefits. I get my hair stretched and I use it as a protective style as well. πŸ™‚

This is a really simple and effective way to stretch and protect your hair, provided you do it properly. Do not make the sections too tight to prevent hair loss or unnecessary pain. When removing the threading apply oil to the area where the knot was tied to loosen it and make it easier for your hair to slide out without breakage.

Check out the video I made, demonstrating how I did my African threading. ❀ ❀ ❀

6 month psc pre-length check

Hi friends, πŸ™‚

I have uploaded my starting length for the 6 month protective style challenge (psc). In the video you would notice my giant pimple, stealing the spotlight. Feel free to ignore it, or don’t πŸ˜€ Β Whatever you decide to do is up to you.

Anyway, I hope you guys remember to document your progress with pictures, or by taking a video. I can’t wait to check back in 6 months and see how I did. πŸ™‚
