    Hey ladies, So a while back (January? February maybe?) I was sent a kinky-curly u-part wig from Eva Wigs.

    Posted by CFYH | December 24, 2012 | Giveaways & Competitions

          This month on the blog, I’ve hosted a 12 days of Christmas giveaway featuring some amazing products. However let’s not forget that Care for Your Hair is also 3 this month (yay!)   I started the facebook page back when there was little information in the UK about natural hair, hardly any inspiration or information about the products available. It’s been great to watch this group grow over the years, most importantly the fact that it’s been of help to you inspires me to do more. Reading some of the comments & emails about just how much Care for Your Hair has helped you means so much to me.   I’d love to be able to bless
