• Shea Moisture UK

    Posted by CFYH | October 10, 2015 | Miscellaneous


    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 […]

  • Brunch with Care for Your Hair

    Posted by CFYH | August 14, 2015 | Miscellaneous


    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 […]

  • Making it happen: Afrocenchix

    Posted by CFYH | April 7, 2015 | Miscellaneous


      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 […]

  • LUSH: Roots Hair Treatment

    Posted by CFYH | August 30, 2014 | Dryness, Miscellaneous, Moisture, Product Reviews


    Last weekend I tried out the Roots Hair treatment from LUSH and I love it already    “The root to great hair starts at the scalp: we’ve used mint in three different ways to stimulate the scalp and hair follicles. We follow this up with conditioning and strengthening extra virgin olive oil, honey, and balancing nettle. The delicate, cheering perfume comes from a blend of neroli, grapefruit, and sweet orange oil. Apply to dry hair, starting at the roots. Massage into the scalp and leave for 20 minutes.”   I applied it on dry hair following advice from Wendy Millington (LUSH Regent Street’s in-house hairdresser). She said that applying treatments onto wet hair isn’t always as effective as applying on […]

          Happy Sunday Ladies, back again with some thoughts I wanted to share with you. This week have look for the new. Expect something new. Allow God to do something new in your life     Isaiah 43:18-19 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past Look! I’m doing a new thing; now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the desert, paths in the wilderness.   In the context of this passage, God had performed many great miracles for Israel, for instance, delivering them from slavery in Egypt by the parting of the Red Sea …Now though God was telling them to forget those things, as great as they […]
