Hair Strands of a Natural Hairolic!!!

Yes, I’m in love and addicted to my hair thus the term HAIROLIC ... but there are some things I’m not addicted to. Due to the nature of naturally curly hair it has a tendency to curl back upon itself and tangle which is where single strand knots come into play ... The image (image one + image two) shows a single knot strand of which I recently cut from my hair

If you look closely you can see a single strand knot (SSK’s) on each strand. After cutting all my SSK’s (about 1-2inches) a few days later they were back with a vengeance!!! I later realised why ... my hair was dry from colouring it plus the cold winter weather was taking its toll on my hair ... So since then I’ve been sealing my hair with Crisco!!! YES CRISCO .. I’ve been using it on my ends only after I moisturise and my SSK’s have dramatically been reduced ... So before getting cutting defiantly give Crisco a try what have you got to lose?

Braid + Curl [Pics]

This is my most recent style, I love it. I will be doing a YT tutorial on how I did it soon.

You do lose ALOT of length with this style, but its great if you don't have natural wash and go curls like me, but want some curls!!!

Oil Guide .. Oil Heavan


This video gives you factual researchable detail on different hair oils. I’ve done all the research so you don’t have to. If you have a dandruff problem, dry scalp, dry hair whatever the problem, oil may help. Different oils each possess different properties that can aid in curing all your hair problems... Oils are commonly used as a sealant (to seal in moisture. Apply AFTER you’ve applied your chosen moisturiser) A common misconception is that no oils moisturise. This is factually incorrect; coconut oil for example does have the ability to provide a certain amount of moisture to the hair. So check the video out ... try some of the tips and your hair will literally think it’s in heaven!

This is a short video of the journey Ive been through since I BC (Big Cut)

Humble Beginnings: My Big Cut in 2007




I big cut (BC) in 2007, 23rd May to be precise. As a young lady I had mixed feelings on one hand I felt very liberated and free on the other I felt very lost in terms of how to style, what to use and how to care for my hair. Along the way I have learned many valuable tips and tricks and also found products that work well for my 4a/b hair.

The BC is a very personal choice. Some shave totally bare, some transition for a long time and some, like me transition for a short period of time. I didn't like my limp, lifeless, un lustrous strands. My tresses had no body, no length no zest for life ... It was dead. Time for a change.

Finally the AHHHH!! Moment came to me!! When I was younger my hair was long, healthy and thick. Why? Because I didn't relax! I Let my hair be how god intended  ... wild and care free ... that ladies and gentleman  is what I strive for today.

My First Post: A Little About Me

I have a confession ... Im a Hairolic!!! I'm addicted to everything that's hair related. I can truly appreciate the beauty of relaxed, texturized, curly permed transitioning and of course ... Natural hair. I love the versitility my natural hair has given me.

Im from United Kingdom, Birmingham to be exact. I don't see many British bloggers ... I hope I may begin to pave the way for more natural British Hairolics to come out the wood works.
