Natural Protein Treatment

hair update

So, I finally did a protein treatment last weekend and I opted for a natural, DIY at home one which I found on Pinterest. It amazes me the world of things you can find on Pinterest, I’ve pinned a gazillion pins to my natural hair board by now. Funny enough my board name is “Bye-Bye Creamy Crack” and we’re 13 months on a fully natural ‘fro.

Why did I need a protein treatment?

  • Sadly, parts of my hair lost its elasticity aka the curls weren’t holding. Whether it was wet or dry when I pulled the strand it wouldn’t bounce back.
  • Hair was also LIMP AF. It just didn’t have its body anymore

What’s your FUTURE lookin’ like?

Hey guys!!

It’s been a while huh? Well, I’m still here. Work been keeping me busy, and when I’m not doing that it’s a headache to do anything blog related. Finding inspiration to keep going gets difficult at times, but I try my best to continue this journey. Giving up is not an option.

Friday Faves // DIY Letter Art

Welcome to my new series – Friday Faves

It’s been weeks since I’ve been wrecking my brain trying to come up with categories for days of the week. I started off with “Motivation Mondays” this week, and eventually I’ll fit in another day between then and Friday. This plan is all done to help me come up with a steady blogging schedule; another goal for my 101 in 1001 days.

Okay, enough chatter! My faves for this week include DIY letter projects I’ve pinnedΒ which I hope to recreate in the future. These are also great ideas if you’re in college to put on your dorm room door or hang as wall art.

I love all these designs and wish that I could create them all, but I believe I’ll just have to settle for one. Maybe I’ll create the others for my sisters or friends in different designs; once all the materials are available here.

Have you carried out any DIYs recently? What do you think about these? Are you on Pinterest? Let me know!
