  • Making it happen: Belinda Raji

    Posted by CFYH | March 7, 2015 | Miscellaneous


     International Women’s Day, an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the achievements of women all around the world. The theme this year is ‘Make it Happen’ and over the next year I will be interviewing black owned businesses that I believe ARE making ‘it’ happen in the haircare/beauty industry. Recognizing women and their accomplishments is a daily thing for me. So join me on this journey. Belinda Of BEUNIQUE Hair Care is Making it happen. Let’s find out how…   When did you start BEUNIQUE Hair Care? I registered the company in 2010, started trading in 2012 and the ideas phase began in 2009.     Why did you start? BEUNIQUE Hair Care was created and born from my own


  • Review || Swish by Afrocenchix

    Posted by CFYH | February 21, 2015 | Moisturising, Product Reviews


    Reviewed by Aurélia Pearl The Swish Natural Moisturising Shampoo by Afrocenchix prides itself for “gently” cleansing and moisturising dry hair, restoring “softness to dry, dull hair,” with “beautifully uplifting natural fragrance”. This product is and does just that! I used the shampoo a few times before writing this review because I wanted to be honest with what I say about it, and honestly, this shampoo does the job for me. The first time I used it I needed a wash badly! I hadn’t washed my hair in weeks—nasty, I know. Having short hair, I am extremely lazy with my what I do with it. I hardly keep up with products and my only maintenance is visiting my barber weekly to

    Written By Belinda Raji of BEUNIQUE Hair Care       There seems to be a tendency in the UK for British naturalistas to be drawn to US hair care products, why is this the case? Some just follow the crowd, led by high subscribing YouTube vloggers whose income is now supplemented through the free products sent their way, and paid for reviews. Although I would like to add, there are a minority of YouTube vloggers who still remain scrupulous and real to the cause, supporting naturals on their journey through unbiased reviews, real advice and heartfelt support for UK brands. Some say price is a big issue, and so therefore choose to remain ‘in the pocket’ of big


  • Review || Curly Magic.

    Posted by CFYH | February 8, 2015 | Product Reviews


    Back in December I received a lovely set of products from the brand Uncle Funky’s Daughter. A paraben, sulfate and overall junk-free, Uncle Funky’s Daughter’s product line     This brand was one of the few natural hair care brands I came across when I first went natural so I was super excited to try out these products…especially their best seller Curly Magic®     I’ve heard many great things about this product but as with many other defining products I’ve tried, I heard great things then was disappointed sooooo I didn’t get my hopes up.     OMG though, once a applied a pump to each section my little kinky curls were like *pop* *pop* *pop*. This product seems to

  • 2014 Favourites!

    Posted by CFYH | December 30, 2014 | Product Reviews


    What did 2014 look like for your hair cabinet? I speak to some of my favs about their favs this year. Hopefully without unleashing the junkie in you, you find something new to try out in 2015!   “This year I discovered a few products I’m now crazy. Kinky Curly Knot Today and the Lush R&B Moisturizer definitely rocked my hair world! The Knot Today is a lightweight, non-greasy leave-in that penetrates into my strands so well. In addition the R&B moisturizer is hands down one of the best moisturisers I’ve tried to date. It’s thick and creamy yet it doesn’t just sit on your hair, it melts into those strands like butter! Some people are divided on the


  • 2014 Musings…

    Posted by CFYH | December 29, 2014 | Sunday Musings


        2014. What a year. For you it may have been a great year or a testing one. A year full of open doors or just straight up challenging. You may have seen goals and visions come to fruition, some of you may still be waiting on this. No matter how your year has played out – by His grace…You. Are. Still. Here. That’s a big deal! Even with the challenges I have been presented with this year, I have been encouraged to not let them overwhelm me. I had to switch from focusing on the challenge to focusing on the lessons I was learning along the way. This year I prayed for numerous things. Though they weren’t


  • Kinky, straight then back again!

    Posted by CFYH | December 23, 2014 | Heat 101, Product Reviews


    After my year long heat free challenge had ended mid November, I was itching to try out a completely different hair style. I decided I’d love to have something layered, shoulder length and…straight. In the past year many straightening systems have popped up. While I’m not a fan of some of their names, I do appreciate the fact that they seem to work and I knew I’d need something like this to get and keep my hair straight for a little while. So I tried the Beautiful Textures ‘Texture manageability system’ which claims to take you from curly to straight and back again. These are the two products you need. You wash your hair with their cleansing shampoo, apply
