New Hair, New Me

Welcome to a brand new blog post written by a blogger wearing a brand new hair in a brand new Year! Yipeee! 

Happy New Hair

New hair, new me

Riding through the waves of last year was as one would say. . .very chaotic but I made it through the storm. I welcomed a lot of big changes and one of them was to birth another human being and I am super grateful that I did! Glory to God!

It was 4 weeks following the birth of my daughter. I brushed my hair and was quite shocked to see a large amount of hair attached to the bristles of my brush.

I had been forewarned about it, but this was worse than I imagined. By ‘it’, I mean postpartum hair loss. 

One of the things that make me feel more me is my natural hair. My confidence is heightened when I’m wearing my kinky hair in afro, high puffs, bantu knots or flat twists.

So it was heart breaking to see my natural hair still breaking out terribly 10 weeks post partum. I shed a tear. 

The breakage was massive and the fall-out was constant, I felt like I was forever having to collect strands up off the floor or pull it out of the plug hole; and annoyingly it was even worse a second time around. I didn’t need another reason to cry but after every shower, after every attempt at gently combing my hair, I lost more and more.

A new year marks another opportunity to be a better version of yourself — and self care is a perfect place to start. 

What does self care mean to you?

For me in this moment, self care is synonymous to my hair care routine. 

I have resolved to getting all of my healthy and full hair back in this new Year. 


No extensions. No braids. No high-tension hairstyles. I am getting rid of dry flakes and the buildup that’s accumulated over the past couple of months.

When it comes to taking care of my natural hair, water is an absolute necessity. One of the keys to maintaining healthy natural hair is water. It is recommended that you drink eight glasses of water daily and also consistently apply water to your hair. They call it ‘moisturizing’. 

To consistently apply plenty more water on my hair this year, I would have to mostly wear my natural hair in cornrows or wash-and-go updo.

I am also going to get more wigs and satin head wears. 

Yeah. In 2023, I am going to let my hair breatheeeee. Literally and literarily.

Have a blessed year!
Stay positive.
Stay inspired.
Stay be-you-tiful.
