  • My scalp loves…

    I absolutely love oils, many of you already know some of my favourites are Argan, Castor, Olive and Coconut Oil. I particularly love them for sealing my hair with or doing hot oil treatments. Recently I’ve been focusing more on my scalp and oil blends/serums that are great for the scalp. Many of us treat our hair with the TLC needed but forget our scalp. Our scalp is like soil and our hair flowers – in order for the flowers to grow, thrive and flourish the soil needs to be in great condition. Same with our heads, our scalp is just important as the hair that grows of it. A scalp that’s well nourished and cared for provides great conditions

  • Keeping my hair moisturised while in Braids & Twists

    Posted by CFYH | April 20, 2013 | Hair Tips, Moisturising

    braids

            I previously wrote a post on how I look after my twists here and for my braids, I pretty much do the same thing. Here’s another post but with a few more products I like using.   It’s hard to get to each strand of your hair while it’s in braids so beforehand I always deep condition & moisturise my hair- this goes for any protective style I do. Doing this before helps ensure your hair is in the best state before you put it away for what could be anything from 4-6 weeks.   While my braids are in moisturise when needed with a leave in conditioner, my go-to has always been Jane Carter Solution leave in –

  • When protective styling gets excessive…

    Posted by CFYH | February 4, 2013 | Hair Tips

    Hey Ladies! You all know that I love protective styling, my hair is always in some sort of protective style. For those that may be unfamiliar with the term , ‘protective styling’ – it’s basically styling the hair in such a way that prevents damage from everyday elements, especially the ends.   But there may come a point when protective styling becomes too much…I’m sure you’re a little confused right now, arguing with me in your head & listing the pro’s of protective styling.   The two types of protective styles I’m talking about are Braids & Weaves       For some reason when the topic of protective styling comes up, I don’t know about you, but braids

  • Going Green…

    Posted by CFYH | January 18, 2013 | Beauty, D.I.Y's, Hair Tips, News

    Hey ladies!   Over on the facebook page, I recently spoke about returning back to the world of juicing and smoothie making  (thank goodness I’ve also just found two of my favourite recipe books). Also thank Fiona of Love Your Tresses for re-inspiring me to get back on the straight & narrow lol!         There is no point worry about what you put on your hair without a care of what you put inside your body…it just doesn’t make sense. While indeed the benefits of smoothies and juicing will be evident in the condition of your hair & skin overtime – my decision to take this on again concerns neither one. My health gets top priority!

  • Protective styling with Kinky Curly Hair again

    Posted by CFYH | December 30, 2012 | Beauty, Hair Tips

    We all need to give our hair a break once in a while and ‘protective style’. With my own hair, I usually opt for my signature bun or a roll & tuck style. I also love switching it up completely and getting extensions (such as braids or twists) or a weave.     Earlier this year I did a weave using kinky curly looking hair & I loved it. It was low maintenance, all I really had to do was retwist my leave-out every night, undo it in the morning and spray the weave with a little water to spruce it up.     So as you may have seen, I’ve revisited this style. For me its nice to

  • ‘Tis the season to be curly…

    Posted by CFYH | December 6, 2012 | Hair Tips, News, Reviews

    Hey ladies!   If you’re on the facebook page you may have already gotten the down low on what this post is about. Well…yesterday, I was raiding through my products cupboard looking to try out something new.   A while back I went to the Curls Unleashed launch and received a bag of goodies, one of which was the Curl Boosting Jelly. I also recently received the Design Essentials Curl Enhancing Mousse.         I’m not a big ‘defined curls’ aka ‘wash & go’ fan but I thought I’d give the products a try. In the past I’ve used Eco styler gel, however there were just too many cons for me to keep using this. *It took

    Posted by CFYH | November 16, 2012 | Hair Tips

        Hey ladies! Here are some ideas on how to wear your hair this festive season. Below, are a few styles and styling tips provided by renowned Design Essentials® master stylist Deshonica Kerrie.       Design Essentials® Multi-Roll Updo   STYLING TIP #1: When creating the perfect, chic holiday updo, Design Essentials® Master Stylist Deshonica Kerrie prepped the model’s hair by first blowdrying it 80% straight.  By blow drying the hair first, it is easier to achieve smooth flat twists which helps to anchor the updo from the sides. Photo Credit: Blue Poppy           STYLING TIP #2: After twisting the side of the hair, Deshonica parts the remaining hair into multiple sections and begins to roll
