For the first time in my life I actually monitored my hair progress these past 12 months & while genes play a big part, I must admit that great products play a huge part as well.

If you've been following my #hairjourney then you know I've been using @maracruizorganics for the past 12 months as well.

It's their 3rd year anniversary and alongside my hairversary πŸ˜‰, I've a chance to gift someone this awesome product too πŸ’ƒπŸ½

'It's good to just let yourself be - be free, be silly, be happy, be sad, be cautious, be smart, be thankful, be joyful.....to just be'

Spent about an hour yesterday creating this style. It's the first time I'm really flexing my hair weaving abilities on my 4c hair and I LOVE IT!!!! 😁

I used the @maracruizorganics hair cream & oil from the Natural hair range + @designessentials argan hair mist to moisturise my hair.

First line-up for the @maracruizorganics Anniversary month done and dusted.

Simon of @craftgourmet is the best πŸ‘πŸ½, the menu was superb and the guests honoured our invitation (I can't tell you how much that means). My first brunch event was a successπŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½. Thank you to everyone 😚😚😚😚😚. #MaraCruizat3 #barbara1923 #naturalhair #teamnatural
'I cut my hair to find myself but now, after 3 years of looking around, I realize that with or without a full head of hair, I've always been myself so there was no need to find myself'

Rocking a braid-out + @illusionscosmetics for my makeup.

In a world where fake or make believe is super-hyped, being the original version of your natural self comes as a surprise to many.

That's also the reason why I've decided to not shape my brows into anything weird again. I will fill them out when I want to & probably make them as sharp as knives in photoshop once in a while but when you see me in real life, this is what you'll see - a woman with super full natural hair + her super bushy natural brows ✌🏽 #barbara1923 #brows #teamnatural
Being a fragrance girl means I can't imagine anything other than a really nice scent wafting from my person when I pass by πŸ™ˆ

However, I thoroughly dislike reapplying perfume during the course of the day so both the sillage & longevity of a scent when mixed with my personal smell is very important to me. 
I had discovered only one other @lancomeofficial perfume when @glambrandagency gifted me with the La Nuit Tresor. One of my best days ever!

I constantly only have one way of describing how it feels to wear this fragrance - "a sultry, sexy vixen all day long" 😜

My #twistout looks different from yours simply because my hair type is different from yours.

The best way to enjoy your hair journey is to make every style your own - you have to own it, not copy it.

That time I managed to snag a picture of the twin towers as we call them through the gate of Muri Okunola park

Gosh, so many hair memories πŸ™ˆ. This was that time @presidentomozo of @onaturalsbeauty fixed my hair for a shoot and it was so lovely I re-styled the extensions and carries the style for a whole extra week.

Many firsts on that day - first time using kinky extensions, first time getting my natural hair blow dried (only time actually), first time getting my hair styled in a natural hair salon 😁

I always have a lip balm of sorts in my bag or around my person somehow but as I've grown up, I've realised that a little shine doesn't hurt especially when your lips are naturally full πŸ˜†

I guess that's why I ❀ this @inglot_cosmetics Sleeks lip gloss. πŸ“· - @be_1923

For the longest time i told myself and everyone who cared to listen that 'I am not my hair'. Alas, it's plain to see that maybe, just maybe I am. I'm so excited for this new journey I'm even excited to try out new things 😜
