    Hey ladies I was kindly sent some hair by HerGivenHair in the lengths 16, 18, 18 in their curly texture. I had seen lots about this brand online and was excited when they said they’d like me to try their hair out. When it arrived, the hair was beautifully packaged in a HerGivenHair box, including the hair I ordered as well as samples of their other textures, coily and kinky. I also received a scarf from them in the box too. Before using the hair, HerGivenHair recommend co-washing the hair. I found co-washing the hair made the hair pop as well as getting rid of the funny smell packaged hair usually has. I made my own upart wig and […]

  • Wash, Apply Product, Diffuse & Go!

    Posted by CFYH | April 5, 2016 | Big Chop

     In February I got my hair cut  and pressed at Ebony Hair Salon in Islington – which was a great experience I cut my hair because I needed a fresh start and a fresh shape. Over the years I’ve been trimming here and there myself and my hair became so uneven. So I thought, “Pelumi, it’s time to let the professionals do it” Now I’m loving this simple cut and the shape I have. I’ve been experimenting more with wash and goes (actually more like wash, apply product, diffuse and go) when my hair isn’t hibernating under my u-part wig. I posted this picture on IG last week and was asked to explain my wash and go routine, so […]

    Hey ladies, If you follow me on instagram you would’ve seen me post about My Luxe Beauty, a black owned “independent hair & beauty retailer based in the UK. Who specialise in natural and organic products, for highly textured hair.” They sell a range of brands such as Shea Moisture, TGIN, Eden Body Works, CURLS, Mielle Organics and more. “The company was born when the founder, desired to increase the accessibility of natural hair and beauty products within the United Kingdom.” I can guarantee some of the brands I listed above have products you’ve seen in the US that you’ve been wanting to try. For me one of the brands I’ve been itching to try is Mielle Organics. I have seen […]

  • Hair Talk with Chinwe

    Hey ladies! Back with the ‘Hair talk’ posts and today I’m featuring the gorgeous Chinwe of IgboCurls. I love her blog and how creative she is with her hair. I’ve heard many women with kinky hair say that there aren’t many styles they can do with their hair. One look at Chinwe’s styles and you’ll be eating those words lol! Have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses?I haven’t been natural my whole life. My mum used to relax my hair when I was younger and we thought nothing of it. It wasn’t until I had a hazardous relaxer burn four years ago, that I decided to […]

I took time to introduce the ladies to the Beautiful Textures brand and speak to a lot them individually about hair regimes and healthy hair in 2016   The speakers included Robyn Henry, Kamilla Schaffner, Sonia Greyson-newman   This event was sponsored by Beautiful Textures.

    It’s a new year and a lot of you may be starting or stepping your healthy hair game in 2016! It can be so overwhelming choosing hair products –  there are literally 100’s out there. No worries though, here to help! I spoke to some UK’s bloggers about their favourite products in 2015 (lol so weird – it was only a couple of days ago) Hopefully without unleashing the junkie in you, you find something new to try out in 2016! Let’s start off with my favourite…or should I say favourites. Although I asked everyone to just choose one. I’m going to be super cheeky and choose three (don’t judge me). One of my favourite products last year was hands down Cantu’s […]

  • Gold Crush Hair Vitamins

    Posted by CFYH | October 20, 2015 | Length Retention, Product Reviews

    IMG_2429

    Let’s talk about…length! Throughout my natural hair journey I haven’t taken vitamins specifically for hair growth, mainly because the crazy claims some brands make put me off. Also because the nutrients you get from a balanced diet really is more effective than supplements. While I believe I eat pretty well, I’m not sure my hair is getting all the nutrients it needs to really thrive. (Our hair & nails are the last places in our bodies to get the nutrients needed to grow) Honestly. the past year has been great but stressful at times and this definitely took a toll on my hair and skin at one point. Having, cut, coloured, used henna, cut cut and cut my hair […]

  • Autumn Hair Tips

    Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

    As the season’s change your hair needs change a little too, so I thought I’d give you a few hair care tips to help transition your hair regime from Summer to Autumn.   *Keep your ends in check! First off, if you need a fresh trim – go for it! Rid your hair of the brittle, broken ends.   *Replenish! Some of you have been on holidays (lucky!) or swimming trips and as a result the chlorine, extra heat & sun exposure may have taken a heavy toll on your hair – making it a little more dry and brittle. If your hair is dry and brittle, a good deep conditioning treatment is definitely needed. During the colder months your hair […]

  • Shea Moisture UK

    I don’t think there’s any other American hair care brand that has natural women everywhere excited like Shea Moisture do. (The products in my goody bag) I remember when I big chopped and my hair was only a few inches long, Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie was what I swore by. How did I get it you ask? I had to get cousins, aunties, anyone to send it down from the US. Their BOGOF offers meant my tresses smelt of coconut and hibiscus all day everyday…well until sending it over was becoming a struggle.   Over the years we have seen Shea Moisture being sold across a few local hair care stores but it’s crazy expensive and the range has […]
