    Hey ladies, So a while back (January? February maybe?) I was sent a kinky-curly u-part wig from Eva Wigs. It’s taken me a good minute to do this review as I wanted to really test the longevity of this unit. Some people aren’t too big on ‘fake natural hair’ but I think it’s a perfect style option for ladies who want to give their hair a break, but rock a style that still resembles their own. It’s also a great way to experiment with different cuts and colour you may not feel comfortable trying out on your own hair. Also, U-part’s are great because it gives those scared of going for a full wig (moi, lol) the comfort in


  • Top Tips for Length Retention

    Posted by CFYH | April 30, 2014 | Miscellaneous


        This week we talk with Kara of ‘Natural Curlies’ about her top 5 tips for retaining length on natural hair.     Keep your hair moisturised regularly. Think of hair as a plant, if a plant isn’t watered regularly it will not flourish and grow, the leaves/ petals will dry out and become crispy and fragile. When natural hair isn’t nourished it will become dry, brittle and look dull like a plant when it has not been looked after. I pay special attention to the ends of my hair, as it’s the oldest part it often gets the driest so it requires the most moisture. I always apply a liquid first In the form of water and then

                Hey Thaina, have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? Initially it wasn’t a conscious decision. To be honest, my younger self didn’t know that I had options. My hair was “unmanageable, unacceptable and a relaxer was absolutely necessary.” The notion is ridiculous to me now but that was what I thought until 2006. I maintained relatively “healthy” and long relaxed hair but I wanted a change and got a cropped Halle Berry-esqe cut shortly after moving to California. I was picky about who permed my hair so I just grew it out and cut off the relaxed ends. I wasn’t

      H A I R   T A L K || Geraldine   Have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? I’ve been natural for over 5 years.  I decided to return back to my natural tresses after a weave installation left my hair in a thin and damaged state.  I decided to explore staying natural after I realized that after allowing my hair to recover from the damage, there was no reason why I couldn’t remain without a chemical straightener in my hair     How did family & friends react to this decision? My family accepted my decision to become natural.  They were more shocked

  • Heat Free Hair Challenge

    Posted by CFYH | December 7, 2013 | Heat 101, Miscellaneous


        Although I’m a haircare blogger, I’m still on the journey of learning and experimenting myself. Over the past few months things has been sooooo busy for me, so when doing my hair I found blowdrying was a quick and easy way to dry or stretch it. I would pick up the blowdryer without reservation. Months later I’m dealing with the consequences. Over the past couple of months I’ve done a lot of trimming to rid stringy, thin, weak ends. As I mentioned in a previous post, I coloured my hair from root to tip last year. Now I have next to no colour left because of all the trimming I’ve had to do to compensate for the
