Greetings ever faithful readers/subscribers…. you truly are my sunshine on a cloudy day. Please forgive my disappearing act, it is far from my intention to desert you as a result of my time mismanagement or straight-up laziness.
In a bid to ditch my slothful ways, I have taken on a self-inflicted challenge and I really do hope to get engrossed in it. This week, I have decided to let you in 5 of my favourite blogs/bloggers; and what it is about their blogs that really captivates me. I will try my utmost to keep the list versatile with each blog distinct from the previous and yet focused on the usual: Style, Fashion, Beauty and Hair.
Good Hair: Curly Nikki
I need not emphasize that I went natural a little over a year ago and so natural hair blogs have pretty much been my hair bible and motivation. Needless to say, kicking off my 5 in 5, is Curly Nikki and the below listed are reasons why….
1. First and foremost, what I like about this blog is the general aesthetic and structured organisation. The padded walls (although red) are not distracting neither are they overpowering; on the contrary I find them quite relaxing, balanced and focused in line with CN’s mission to promote self-esteem.
It’s so easy to navigate through the different pages of the CN blog. Every tab is subdivided into different pages addressing different topics. My favourite to date although, has got to be the Recipes Page under Basics. I love trying new hair recipes and this page is definitely my ‘Go-To’ page for yummy natural hair recipes.
2. The CN blog covers everything from transitioning to children’s hair. There’s no question I’ve thought to ask, that hasn’t already been addressed and in addition to that, did I mention that there’s a forum.
3. The blog has a dictionary (Hallelujah!). When I first got the Big Chop, I was totally clueless about what ‘sealing’, ‘3abc/4a/4b/4c’ hair types and twist outs. Thankfully, there was a dictionary I could reference.
You don’t need to be natural to visit Curly Nikki, you just need to want to look after your hair delivering healthy and beautiful results.
Ps:I’m back! 🙂
