100 Years of Beauty

I really liked this video and can see myself rocking all the hairstyles but my favorites are:

1940s- It's a super cute updo. Would work great for formal events like weddings,
1960s- I love that retro look! that hairstyle and cateye sunglasses. Yes girl!
1970s- Who doesn't love big hair?!
1990s- Boxbraids are timeless.
2000s- Braids in the front and afro in the back gives me a neosoul vibe. Love! Might have to re-create that for the summer.

Love always,

Hair Goals- 2015

1. Moisturize hair daily. 
I have to confess that I'm a lazy natural, I kinda just do it when needed and it's worked out fine. But I'm gonna try something different this time and maybe I'll have better results. My goal is to have a daily routine of keeping my hair soft and moist. (Hate that word btw... Sounds so wrong... Moist? Ugh!)

2. Retain length.
So I've put my hair through something terrible for quite some time now. I've been cutting my hair with regular scissors! *hides under the covers* 
I know, I know it's the worst thing you can do to your hair but I couldn't help it! Every time I felt those single strand knots it made my skin crawl. Regular scissors can cause split ends and breakage.
My commitment for this year will be to only use hair shears and limit myself to two or three trims.

3. Edges, edges, edges *sigh*.
Guuurl-honey-boo boo-chileee-buhbay... My edges have been through a lot. Relaxer, micro braids gone bad, hand-in-hair syndrome. All types of bad... As a result, my hair line is a lot thinner than my crown. I've been seeing some progress lately and I will definitely document my pursuit for fleek'd edges here.

4. Deep conditioning.
I know that this is natural hair 101 but I don't deep condition every week. I do it about every third week or so. I am really spontaneous with my hair but I really want to establish a routine and stick to it.

5. Protective styles. 
I prefer my hair in protective styles. All the time. Not only because I'm lazy but my hair thrives when it's not constantly manipulated. However, it's important to have in between styles, so I plan to keep my hair out for about two to three weeks at a time.

Overall, my goal is to obtain healthy hair, just need tweak my regiment a lil bit!

What are your hair goals for 2015?

Stay tuned to see my progress.
Love Always,

2014 was a year of revelations...

I'm a perfectionist to a fault. It's something I've been aware of for quite some time. There's nothing wrong with having a specific vision, however in my case wanting perfection left me with no room for error. That's why I haven't blogged in a while. I was being really hard on myself whenever I would try to write a post and eventually the post would end up as draft. (Believe me when I say I have at least 10 post that are saved as draft... Le sigh). 


I've come to realize that I need to step outside of my comfort zone, allow myself to be vulnerable and just let my creativity flow. With that said, I will be posting non hair related topics on my blog in future, topics that I am passionate about and can relate to. NeoRoots the blog needs some CPR and be revived with new content because I have a short attention span and get easily bored.......
In 2015, I want to challenge myself more, learn new things, have new experiences, realize my dreams smd so much more. I'm scared but definitely ready.

Let the creative juices flow!

Stay tuned.

Love always,

P.S. Can I just say that it's been amazing seeing the increase of black awareness, bloggers, forums and documentaries in Scandinavia. It's so dope that more of us are creating our own space and displaying our versatility. I'm truly inspired by my surroundings and can't wait to see more in 2015.
