how I tuck in my hair ends


To all my ladies out there with the struggle of doing your own hair, you are not alone , the challenges of doing my own hair are:

  1. risk of too much force, hence pulling hair too much
  2. missing the back because I can’t see
  3. braiding hair  at weird angles because the mirror image is not a true image,
  4. arm muscles get tired because they are not used to the prolonged overhead position and I get delayed because I have to take breaks!

NOTE: all the above challenges get better with practice!

Watch me  do my hair before bed here

I start off by detangling and  washing my kinks


I then condition and then stretch my hair to air-dry it stretched.


I then style as I wish


That is my simple daily routine in pictures, please comment and let me know your daily care or management of your natural hair!


lots of love

  1. Beautiful hair you have. I envy you right now. You have to do that every night? When am not in protective style,i do a cornrow and wear my satin bonnet. Doing my hair is one heavy work. I cant imagine doing that every night


  2. Hey @naturalrify, thanks for stopping by, this year I haven’t done much of protective styling , I either twist ,braid or band my hair at night to keep it stretched after washing or moiturising, so it doesn’t tangle more during the night, it is a challenge I know!

  3. Oh Lebo, I hope to someday be as good as this as you are… I bought this silk scarf, that I simply tie on when I’m too tired to braid the hair at night. But your routine seems healthier…7 months after my big chop and I’m learning 🙂
    Thank you!
