OOTD: Cosy Cardi

This beautiful apricot colourblock cardigan from Sheinside has come in rather handy.

I love it to bits. Perfect for months like these when you leave your house thinking; ‘Ooooh, it’s the start of Spring,’ and then it snowing by midday.

Major WELP.

I was also in this same frame of mind when I decided it would be a good idea to get a salon-quality blow-dry and cut at Francesco Hair Salon (who by the way do Afro hair brilliantly!) because my hair was begging for it.

It was my first flat iron since I went natural 2 years ago. Needless to say it lasted a few hours. And to be fair I was feeling the straight hair. Y’all know nappy hair will snap right back into position at the slightest drop of water… 🙁

What I AM feeling though is the smoothness. As big as my hair looks now, it feels smoother than a baby’s bottom. There’s not a knot or tangle in sight. My twist outs have been seamless. I could get used to this. How come I can’t et my hair to feel like this at home? DARN.

I don’t want to get used to blow-drying but it was good while it lasted. I need alternatives to this.

OUTFIT: Sheinside apricot colourful cardigan, Oasis jeans , Nude heels

    An alternative to blow outs would be just wear a straight weave or wig when you want straight hair, that’s what i do anyways… slaying my life once again, you’re amazing!

    You look stunning! The “straight but not straight” hair actually looks pretty good! It feels intentional and works really well.

    Lovely ensemble.
    Unfortunately during #winter/spring not alot of alternatives. The nappy hair shrinks. Have you tried using ecostyle gel on dam hair. you can style it. it’s hair friendly and you can wash it off at night or end of the week. check out thechicnatural you tube.
    Oh did your makeup routine and I looked fabulous. thanks for sharing.
