    Hey ladies, Now the weather has definitely changed and I’m sure your skin is changing too. This time of year many people experience dry, flaky, chapped lips. A great thing to do is moisturise your lips. However, as well as mositurising your lips, you need to exfoliate them to rid all dead skin. Lip scrubs are great because you can make them in 60 seconds and using it results in smooth, supple, soft lips.   p.s. It’s also a great idea to exfoliate before you wear lipstick, especially matte lipstick. Those flaky bits are not cute.     Some people simply like to use their tooth brush on their lips once they’ve finished brushing their teeth which is fine. However

    A little while ago I debuted my first ever ‘w’ word on the blog lol. Since then I’ve been a lot more open to the idea of wigs as a protective style, especially now it’s cold. Wigs make it super easy to look after your hair too, bangs by day – deep condition by night. I consider them stylish hats lol. Back in October I was sent a unit from Evawigs.com - Versatile Yaki Straight Custom Full Lace Human Hair Wig.   Hair info: Hair Length: 16 Inches Hair Density: Medium 100% Baby Hair: Without Lace Material: Swiss Lace Cap Construction: Glueless Full Lace Cap with Stretch Cap Size: Average (you can request a custom cap) Lace Color: Light Brown


  • 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
