  • Inspiring Afro Hairstyles for your natural hair (2/7/2019) - How I learnt how to style, and what my experience has been like? I think styling is very texture dependent.

Coincidentally, at that time, I was also thinking of creating a Twitter account and  what handle I could use. I had so many options. Long story short, I came up with ‘Afro Mona’, […]
  • Embracing my curls (10/3/2018) - I have always wanted to start a natural hair blog but I was always walking around with a bag of excuses.
