British Natural Hair Blogs

Hey guys! Ok for some reason I am getting pretty frustrated by the lack of UK based blogs dedicated to natural hair. I have encountered a few but out of those few, some of them have dropped off the radar. Even more frustrating? UK based blogs about traditional locs!! The little number of blogs about locs in the UK talk about Sisterlocks. Yeah. So, I'm making a list. Please feel free to comment to add any you recommend or find! This list will be updated as and when I find new ones

Braidout Galore!

Hi guys! Ok so it's not really a galore but hey, it's a style I have somewhat managed to perfect so get in! So, the first time I did a proper braid out on my mature locs was last November (?). I say a proper braid out because I attempted to do one for my sister's graduation last year but it didn't turn out very well. I assume it's because I only left the braids in for a few hours over night but hey, whatever. I find that braiding my locs is a tad difficult for me, seemingly due to the thickness of my locs. They are not particularly pliable if you catch my drift. I kept the braids in that time for about a week and a half? In an attempt to look like I had made some kind of effort, I basket weaved the front half instead of my regular half pony. My mum complimented it (in her own two by four way lol)! I liked it
