• Shea Moisture – Jamaican Black Castor Oil…Love!

    Posted by CFYH | October 9, 2016 | Miscellaneous


    Since cutting my hair back in February, I’ve totally switched up my hair regime and the products I use. Being a blogger comes with many perks. For instance, having the opportunity to try out so many amazing haircare brands. However, this can easily take you away from your regime and the products that really work for you. I found this to be true for my hair care regime. Due to the lack of consistency in my hair care regime…my hair began to suffer. I’d test out a variety of products that would later cause my hair to dry out or just didn’t provide the moisturise I needed which inevitably resulted in some breakage. I soon realised that keeping up with the reviews stopped me from […]

  • HerGivenHer initial thoughts

    Posted by CFYH | September 17, 2016 | Miscellaneous


    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 […]

  • 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 […]

    Super excited about today’s feature. This past weekend UK’s No.1 Natural Hair and Beauty show took place – yes of course, the one and only Curlvolution.

  • 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 […]
