    Have you ever looked at anyone’s curls or kinks and wondered just what they do in the mornings (or the night before) to get their hair looking so good? Well I’ll be helping you out! This week’s installment of ‘Day to Night’ features UK blogger Curly Proverbz. For those wondering, she hasn’t always had this luscious head of curls, for years her hair remained at shoulder length. However, after implementing good hair care practices to her regime and finding what works for her hair she has seen her hair flourish.       How do you revive those curls in the morning? In the mornings I refresh my curls with my DIY henna tea or aloe vera and water

    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. At this event Apprentice Finalist Bianca Miller took part in the 50  Shades of Brown panel discussion which helped answer many questions.

      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

    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

    On Thursday, LUSH Regent Street held a natural hair event in light of the Notting Hill Carnival It was a lovely event and I’m glad I went because I’ve never really paid attention to LUSH’s hair care range, just their skincare stuff. One of my favourites from LUSH is their  Sexy Peel soap…it smells amazing – a great start to the morning. “A citrus soap that’s packed with exfoliating orange, lemon and lime peel and freshly-squeezed juice that leaves you set up for a great day. This is one of our most uplifting soaps. Fresh orange and lemon juices are said to be particularly good on oily or congested skin as they are naturally cleansing and full of fruit
