  • Ayurvedic products in my ‘regime’

    Posted by CFYH | July 11, 2015 | Deep Conditioning, DIY Recipes, Henna


    While I don’t have a strict regime like some women do, I do have hair care practices that I implement weekly to keep my hair in tip top shape. For instance co-washing (especially in this heat) my hair needs to be co-washed twice a week. I have now decided I’d like to incorporate elements of Ayurveda into my regimen too.     Before I installed my cuban twists I did a little shopping and bought some Henna and Amla powder. A few years back I used to do henna treatments every 2-3 months but this was mainly for the colour benefits of henna. I found doing this gave my hair a beautiful copper tinge but did leave my hair […]

The Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In Conditioner is a water based leave in which claims to “Moisturise, detangle and soften thick kinks or curls, relaxed, colour treated or dry hair” making this product one of their best sellers.  I always appreciate simple products which cater to a wide range of hair types.

  • Protective Stylin’ | Cuban Twist Hair

    Posted by CFYH | June 24, 2015 | Scalp


    Hey ladies! If you follow Care for Your Hair on ig (@cfyh_uk) you already know that for the past 6 weeks, I’ve had my hair in twists. I really wanted a change and I was scrolling through my instagram feed when I saw @awalkingdoxology’s upload. How lovely are these twists? It was then I thought ‘Right, twists it is!’     Twists are a great protective option for giving your hair a rest from manipulation. However, I usually only do twists twice a year to minimize the amount of tension I put on my scalp and hair from the added extensions. There are so many different types of hair for that kinky twist look… marley hair, havanna hair…and the […]

  • Moisture & Hydration

    Posted by CFYH | May 5, 2015 | Moisture, Moisturising


          I get a lot of questions about dryness, brittle/breaking and ‘hard’ hair and what to do next. The keys words here are moisture & hydration I cannot stress enough how beneficial moisture is for our type of hair, especially as it’s more prone to dryness. Thee best source of moisture is water.   While wetting our hair everyday is not feasible for a lot of us. Over the years I can say I’ve found many different ways that help provide the moisture and hydration my hair needs.   *Co-washing my hair at least once a week – My hair loves this. For those that haven’t come across this term before, co-washing is short for conditioner washing, i.e.  to […]

  • Hair Talk with Asha

    Posted by CFYH | April 17, 2015 | Length Retention, Reader Feature


          Have you been natural all your life? If not when did you decide to return to your natural tresses and why? Hey! No, I’ve not been natural my whole life. In fact, I was in the process of looking for weave videos when I made the decision to go natural. It’s funny how these things happen. I was on my 5th or 6th video when I read a racist comment about Black women needing other people’s hair because we couldn’t grow our own. At the time, I had no rebuttal, absolutely no evidence of the contrary. However, it didn’t quite sit with me. I looked below it to see a comment stating that the original poster […]

  • Tuesday Tip: Clear Spray Bottles

    Posted by CFYH | April 14, 2015 | Beginner's Kit, DIY Recipes, Moisture


      This week’s tip is to use clear spray bottles for your hair mixes and to also to change your mix every few days.     First off, I always advise using a clear spray bottle when making your own hair spray mixes.  When making a hair spray mix that contains water you will have to preserve it or refrigerate it and use it within 2-4days. Water emulsified with oil is a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and fungi. Imagine using an opaque bottle   …your spray mix could mold and you wouldn’t even notice…nasty right!? Clear bottles always ladies (unless of course you change it daily) Sooo just mix all that you need, enough to last you a few days…don’t […]
