I was natural for three years then I decided to shave my hair and start again. While I was natural I used three main hair products religiously; cantu shea leave-in-conditioner, olive oil spray and shea butter. I swear by these three products and they worked really well for me. For my slicked down hairstyles I used Nyxon freeze gel. My hair is far too curly for Ecostyler gel, it just never worked for me. Here are a few examples of the different styles I did….Continue Reading “Natural Hair is Versatile”

I remember being my 2nd year at uni and being shocked when I received the highest mark in the class for a short story I’d written. (You can read it here- https://flightjournal.org/2015/11/29/not-today-ruvimbo-maria-kuuzabuwe/ ) My lecturer was surprised that I was shocked and he asked me why.
