  • New love for Eco Styler gel

    Posted by CFYH | August 10, 2014 | Product Reviews, Tutorials


    Hey ladies, So recently I posted on instagram about my new found love for Eco Styler Gel. I usually just use Eco styler gel to smooth down my edges or to achieve my signature slick bun. Now I’ve discovered I can use Eco styler gel for twists/braids (outs) without the hard, flaky feeling.   “Whoooo child! My twists have been juicy lately a result of using Ecostyler gel & @afrocenchix scalp oil”   What I use: Eco Styler Gel An Oil – I’ve been using Afrocenchix ‘Soothe Scalp Oil’ but you can use some olive oil instead (or any oil of your choice) A spray bottle with some water     1. Section off a small part of your hair. I

    Quick hair update! I’ll get back on the reviews and features very soon. But…You know that saying you never know what you’ve got until it’s gone? Well yeah I experienced that recently with a hair product, Root 2 Tip’s ‘Super Growth Root-Energizer’.     I was using this product throughout 2012 and the beginning of 2013 until I ran out. I had so many other oils so I just thought I’d make do with them, however it just hasn’t been the same. Now for me this isn’t a miracle growth oil but it really did contribute to the health of my scalp and growing hair (please note  ’contribute to health and growth ‘ lol not ‘make my hair healthy

I wish I were, my hair would’ve been blowing in the wind ever so gracefully! I chose to return to my natural texture when my friend (who was already natural) asked me “Why do you perm your hair?” I sat there looking for an answer but every possible answer sounded so weak. • “Because I’m supposed to.” – According to who? What unwritten rule was there demanding my hair be relaxed? • “Because it looks good.” – Said who? Why wasn’t the hair growing

            Small beginnings often involves hard work & little to no help. There may be setbacks and not everyone will see or understand your vision. But it’s ok, remember…do not despise this season of small beginnings (zec 4:10) e.g. career wise. Be faithful in the position you are in right now. Bloom where you are planted. Be consistent and have integrity in what you do. Those that are faithful with little will be faithful with much more (Luke 16:10). Your faithfulness and consistency will ensure you will reap the benefits of the work you put in (the the seeds you sow will be watered and grow abundantly – Isaiah 30:23) This week make it your misson

    Hey Ladies, Now it’s been a few weeks but I’m sure some of you are still buzzing from Curlvolution this year. Once again Bukky and the Curlvolution team have shown how hair and beauty events should be done. The atmosphere was just amazing, those that went can attest to this. This is the only event of it’s kind that I’ve been to where the vibe is great, the love is thick in the air and you leave not only learning more about hair but health and life in general. One of the main contributors to the awesome vibe is Mr Action Jackson himself! Aside from being funny, he made it his mission to encourage self love and confidence (Ladies,

    Hey Ladies, Those of you that follow on instagram and facebook will already know that I love to post a little quote, song, or Bible verse everyday to get you motivated and ready to start the day on a great note.

So every Sunday I will endeavour to post words of encouragement for you.   As we start this new week, make a conscious decision to trust in God…in His process and plans for you. Many of us are chasing things that don’t have our name on it and because of


  • EvaWigs recap & Giveaway

    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
