BNG turns 1 today!

I can’t believe it’s been one year since I started BreaKINK New Ground. I hope my blog content has been applicable to you. As I learn, I share my discoveries with you and I also gain from you. So “thank you” to everyone that reads, comments and subscribes. Your involvement means so much to me!

I appreciate you staying with me through this blog and hair journey I’m on (even in moments of drought, lol). You all are so wonderful :-)

By the way, I've got some upcoming giveaways planned for my subscribers. I’ll put up a separate post later with week with details.

Thanks for reading. Be blessed!

Our daughters: Are we fighting a losing battle?

Smooth hairline

When wearing certain hairstyles (such as buns), I desire a smooth hairline. However, I don’t always want to use a gel to achieve this so I’m looking for an alternative. I have seen/heard some naturals use Slick Stick, plain shea butter or a pomade before setting with a scarf.
