Falling out of love with my Natural Hair – 6 month hair loss update

The reason for this blog and the various social media platforms that I have, is my hair. For those who don’t know, my blogging journey began way back in 2010 when I had relaxed hair. I decided I wanted to take better care of my hair, and therefore started to document my healthy hair journey on my then blog loveyourtresses.com.

If there was one thing I wish I had access to in my early days of blogging, it would be a resource that would guide me on how to create the best content possible. Back then I knew nothing about SEO, rarely linked to relevant blog posts, and was clueless about so many other amazing blogger tips and tricks.
