It’s been a minute but I’m back! It’s been hectic so I just wanted to update you on where I am in my Newly Natural Hair Journey!

Currently, I am 2.5 years post relaxer, 6 months post BC.

I’ve been beside myself since I BC’d; I’ve been so enamored with my hair that I’ve abandoned my tried and true protective styling for the most part.

My plan is to return to protective styling for at least 4-5 days a week and let it all hang out on the weekends.

Weekend Project: How To Clean a Conch Shell

Conch Shell Before

When I was in the Bahamas, this conch shell was gifted to me by coconutdaddy1 (checkout how he acquires his coconuts). My knowledge of conch was mostly non-existent, except for the fact that here in FL, a lot of people eat variations of conch. I’d never tried it and when I found out conch was a slug, I had no desire to try it.

Upon receiving the shell, I was instructed to take it home and oil it. I waited two weeks to do something and by that time, the outer layer of the shell had hardened. I decided to tackle the project this weekend.
