"I always do the same styles."

"You can't do anything with 4c hair!"

"Natural hair is difficult."

"It's so hard to style..."


Does that sound familiar? I've heard this refrain so many times and it's so sad. Funny enough, I've found myself muttering these same words under my breath while wrestling with this head of very kinky, coily, nappy, knotty hair! It can be a struggle. I know this. You know this. We all know this!

We accept the fact that kinky hair isn't always easy to manipulate but we should also acknowledge that it's probably one of the most versatile textures around. Is there anything that our hair can't do? Sure, we have to put in a tiny bit of extra work and yes on other days we have to put in a few hours of extra work.  But isn't it worth it when your healthy head of kinky hair is done up in a gorgeous style?  

Below I've shared with you some of my favorite styles from the past five years.  All of the styles are pretty simple. There's quite a variety for you to choose from; high puffs, two strand twists, twist-outs with a twist and buns, buns and more buns.  You can modify most of them to suit whatever stage of the natural hair journey you're presently enjoying. Happy styling!

Much Love,
Charity









 


It's good to be back.

It's been years since I've consistently published blog posts but believe me, Deep Fried Stilettos has been alive and well in this daydreamer's thoughts. We've simply been awaiting the day when fear and procrastination would give way to endless possibilities and productivity. Today's that day, let's claim it!

Believe me, I'm still afraid to open myself up to negative criticism but there's so much that I want to share with you! So we're taking that leap. Ok? Are you with me?  Let's do this and do it right.

I've been contemplating the fate of my older posts. Oh, my word. Some of them are ridiculously cringe worthy!   I just want to delete the entire thing, throw the whole blog away! Literally. But, on the other hand I started blogging when I was 17 years old and fresh out of high school which is definitely a cringe worthy period! These pages hold so many memories and it's an absolute joy strolling down memory lane, regardless of the embarrassing pot hole or two!

There's so much that I'd love to share with you; my natural hair journey, nutrition, Caribbean living, health and wellness, so many ideas, my fingers simply can't type fast enough!

I  hope that you've been absolutely wonderful, blessed and showered with love.  Here's to new beginning!

Much Love,
Charity
