  • 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

    Super excited about today’s feature. This past weekend UK’s No.1 Natural Hair and Beauty show took place – yes of course, the one and only Curlvolution. At this event Apprentice Finalist Bianca Miller took part in the 50  Shades of Brown panel discussion which helped answer many questions. I also had the opportunity to personally ask her some questions about her latest business project as well as tips for those embarking on their own start up. For those that have not yet heard of Bianca Miller, she is the creator and founder of a new and dynamic brand called Bianca Miller London. “Bianca Miller London offers a diverse range of nude hosiery designed to complement women of all complexions.”

  • 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

  • Tuesday Tip: Clear Spray Bottles

    Posted by CFYH | April 14, 2015 | Beginner's Kit, DIY Recipes, Moisture

    spraybottlecfyh

      This week’s tip is to use clear spray bottles for your hair mixes and to also to change your mix every few days.     First off, I always advise using a clear spray bottle when making your own hair spray mixes.  When making a hair spray mix that contains water you will have to preserve it or refrigerate it and use it within 2-4days. Water emulsified with oil is a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and fungi. Imagine using an opaque bottle   …your spray mix could mold and you wouldn’t even notice…nasty right!? Clear bottles always ladies (unless of course you change it daily) Sooo just mix all that you need, enough to last you a few days…don’t

    AFROCENCHIXWMIH

      Over the next year I will be interviewing black owned businesses that I believe ARE making ‘it’ happen in the haircare/beauty industry.  I remember early in my natural hair journey coming across the Afrocenchix brand – one of a very small number of UK haircare brands available. Over the years I can say I’ve seen this brand and their products grow and develop so well. Recognizing women and their accomplishments is a daily thing for me. So join me on this journey.   When did you start Afrocenchix? Afrocenchix began in July 2010 whilst Rachael and Joycelyn were at university.     Why did you start? Afrocenchix was launched during the time when there was a lack of

    So last week Sza graced Vogue with her new fiery copper colour.         Looking at the pictures of her copper curls just reminded me of some naturals I love who are currently or have rocked the copper look in the past. Definitely living the copper life through these ladies My ultimate copper crush has to be @mdlcskez. Her hot curls will no doubt leave you wondering why you haven’t coloured your hair yet! @ownbyfemme @msvaughntv @thainamadere @hannahfaith @charyjay Coralie Jouhier @janae_raquel    @neffyfrofro
