  • Day to Night with Curly Proverbz

    Posted by CFYH | July 27, 2015 | Miscellaneous

    DTN

    Have you ever looked at anyone’s curls or kinks and wondered just what they do in the mornings (or the night before) to get their hair looking so good? Well I’ll be helping you out! This week’s installment of ‘Day to Night’ features UK blogger Curly Proverbz. For those wondering, she hasn’t always had this luscious head of curls, for years her hair remained at shoulder length. However, after implementing good hair care practices to her regime and finding what works for her hair she has seen her hair flourish.       How do you revive those curls in the morning? In the mornings I refresh my curls with my DIY henna tea or aloe vera and water

  • Ayurvedic products in my ‘regime’

    Posted by CFYH | July 11, 2015 | Deep Conditioning, DIY Recipes, Henna

    ARYUVEDA

    While I don’t have a strict regime like some women do, I do have hair care practices that I implement weekly to keep my hair in tip top shape. For instance co-washing (especially in this heat) my hair needs to be co-washed twice a week. I have now decided I’d like to incorporate elements of Ayurveda into my regimen too.     Before I installed my cuban twists I did a little shopping and bought some Henna and Amla powder. A few years back I used to do henna treatments every 2-3 months but this was mainly for the colour benefits of henna. I found doing this gave my hair a beautiful copper tinge but did leave my hair

        Karen’s body beautiful is home grown, award-winning, all-natural, hair and skin care brand, launched across the pond in the United States and is available in the UK. The Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In Conditioner is a water based leave in which claims to “Moisturise, detangle and soften thick kinks or curls, relaxed, colour treated or dry hair” making this product one of their best sellers.  I always appreciate simple products which cater to a wide range of hair types. No worries about not being able to use a product because you’re not a fan of the smell, you have 13 different scents to choose from, yes 13 including an unscented version; I purchased the “Creamy Coco Mango” scent.

  • Protective Stylin’ | Cuban Twist Hair

    Hey ladies! If you follow Care for Your Hair on ig (@cfyh_uk) you already know that for the past 6 weeks, I’ve had my hair in twists. I really wanted a change and I was scrolling through my instagram feed when I saw @awalkingdoxology’s upload. How lovely are these twists? It was then I thought ‘Right, twists it is!’     Twists are a great protective option for giving your hair a rest from manipulation. However, I usually only do twists twice a year to minimize the amount of tension I put on my scalp and hair from the added extensions. There are so many different types of hair for that kinky twist look… marley hair, havanna hair…and the

  • Moisture & Hydration

    Posted by CFYH | May 5, 2015 | Moisture, Moisturising

    M&H

          I get a lot of questions about dryness, brittle/breaking and ‘hard’ hair and what to do next. The keys words here are moisture & hydration I cannot stress enough how beneficial moisture is for our type of hair, especially as it’s more prone to dryness. Thee best source of moisture is water.   While wetting our hair everyday is not feasible for a lot of us. Over the years I can say I’ve found many different ways that help provide the moisture and hydration my hair needs.   *Co-washing my hair at least once a week – My hair loves this. For those that haven’t come across this term before, co-washing is short for conditioner washing, i.e.  to

          Have you been natural all your life? If not when did you decide to return to your natural tresses and why? Hey! No, I’ve not been natural my whole life. In fact, I was in the process of looking for weave videos when I made the decision to go natural. It’s funny how these things happen. I was on my 5th or 6th video when I read a racist comment about Black women needing other people’s hair because we couldn’t grow our own. At the time, I had no rebuttal, absolutely no evidence of the contrary. However, it didn’t quite sit with me. I looked below it to see a comment stating that the original poster
