    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

    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 […]

    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 […]

    11am…time to brunch!             Kicking off the Q & A session was leading Afro and European Trichologist Teresa Richardson and Eleanore Richardson of Fulham Scalp & Hair Clinic. During this session, Teresa addressed some of the most common hair myths and offered advice based on her 25 years of hair care experience. There were gasps, laughs and nods of agreement.     Many of Teresa’s answers challenged the practices we’ve been taught over the years as black women or learnt through YouTube. Questions ranged from prolonged thinning, how to really condition hair and the best ways to stimulate your scalp for growth. Its fair to say we all learnt a lot from Teresa and […]
