I’ve always taken pictures of my hair throughout my hair journeys (Relaxed, Transitioning and now Natural). I’ve mentioned this before, but pictures are KEY to noticing growth, as well as changes in the overall health & condition of your hair.
Tracking your progress will;
👉🏾Prove that your hair is actually growing.
👉🏾Show that your hard work is paying off.
👉🏾Encourage & motivate you to keep going.
👉🏾Help you to identify what’s working in your hair care routine, to what’s not working.
👉🏾Began transitioning Oct 2015
👉🏾Transitioning time - 18 months
👉🏾Big Chop Date - April 2017
👉🏾Been Natural - 1 Year & 4 Months
👉🏾Very 1st Trim - April 2018 (trimmed roughly an inch)

#TBT - Malta 2 weeks ago! Took a quick photo whilst taking a final stroll before heading to the airport. Looking at this pic, I still can’t believe we’re a family of 5 now 🤗😍😘❤

Another shot from my recent Wash N Go video, using @auntjackiescurlsandcoils (Swipe to see). In case you missed it over the weekend, it’s now live on my channel. Links in my bio and also on IGTV 💕

Hey guys, I’m back! 😜 It’s been a while since I posted on here (6 weeks to be exact). In that time I’ve especially enjoyed watching my baby girl Ava develop and grow 🤗
There’s also sadly been the passing of my father in law. RIP🙏🏾❤
We’ve also managed to go on a well deserved family break away. But I’m ready to get into the swing of posting back on here now.
So, remember that Wash N Go video I promised?’s now live on my YouTube channel for those of you showed an interest. Links in bio! 😊
Also, I’ve noticed an influx of new followers, so heyyy👋🏾 If you previously asked a question on one of my posts and I haven’t responded, I may have missed it, so please feel free to post it again 😊

I thought it was only fair that I recreate this pic for the 3rd time round, this time with Ava (1st Pic)😍 I first did it back in 2012 (2nd Pic) when my son Cameron was born, then again in 2015 (3rd Pic) when my 1st daughter Olivia was born. (Swipe left to see the other pics).
So the past 2 weeks since she was born has been GO, GO, GO! I hardly had any sleep for the first 4 days whilst trying to adjust to her night time routine and other stuff, but we’re slowly making some progress 🙌🏾
But Ava is doing really well. She’s such a good calm and content and Cam & Oli absolutely adore their baby sister ❤️
Anyway, hoping to get back on social media very soon and also to get my Updated Wash N Go video up, so keep a 👀 out!

Welcome to the World Gorgeous Ava! 🎉😍💗 She arrived on Saturday morning at 41 weeks! We’re completely overjoyed, blessed and thankful for her safe delivery. It all happened super quick, that at one point, I wasn’t sure I’d make it to the hospital 😳 Anyway, currently adjusting to life as a Mum of 3 and enjoying quality time bonding.

#Throwback to this Wash N Go back in April. Btw, for those of you who’ve asked about how I create my wash n gos, my UPDATED Routine will be up on my YouTube channel within the next day or 2, which is slightly different to my previous ‘Dry Wash N Go’ video currently on my channel. So keep a look out 😊

My Natural Hair Care Routine video is now live on my YouTube channel, showing all these hair care products and how I use them on my hair, for those of you who have been interested in knowing my in depth routine. Be sure to click the link in my bio to watch. Hope it’s useful 😊

#TextureTuesday - Love an updo! Looking forward to when I have more length, so I can be more creative with hairstyles.

#TBT Who doesn’t LOVE a comparison shot?! 😁 So here’s one from a different angle ➿➿➿

My youngest, although she won’t be for too much longer. I’ll miss her being the baby of the family 😢😘❤

If you’ve got 10 minutes to spare, then check out my 1 Year Natural Hair Journey video, now live on my YouTube channel. I’m taking you through the past 10 years + of my hair journey, so it also includes an insight into my Relaxed Hair growth and Transitioning Hair journeys. (Links in bio). Hope you enjoy watching and have a lovely bank holiday weekend 🤗
