 Just A Quick ACV Update

So the last time I used Apple Cider Vinegar I was an ACV virgin. I’m definitely not an expert now but my second attempt was a massive success. This time I mixed it with the Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Smoothing Shampoo. The initial plan going into wash day was to put the shampoo, vinegar and some water into a spray bottle and mist myself. However when I got into the shower it was just taking too long to get from bottle to follicle. Instead I ended up taking the sprayer off and dousing myself with it. Massaged it in,  went…

Song of the Month

Song Of The Month – February 2017 – Whip My Hair by Willow Smith

LINK TO THE VIDEO When it comes to thinking about classic songs that will go down in history, this ain’t one! But at this time of pretty much complete baldness, it is motivation. Because one day I will be able to whip my hair or have enough hair to add extensions to my own hair to whip. But until that day, I will just nod my head to this little ditty. Follow me on YouTube to watch the whole playlist. So here it goes, press play, listen and love it. Let’s keep growing! xx Lee xx Comments welcome below. Hey,…

My 1000 Word Project #4

Here we go again! I don’t remember where this week’s idea came from but I really liked it (if I do say so myself). The premise is basically that you have to ruin the biggest day of someone’s life to save the world. I wrote my first 1000 words of this story but I’m not completely happy with them, not because the premise isn’t good, I think it is but because I have a lot of ideas and even after writing this, I keep changing my mind about the direction it’s going. So in short, the idea works for me,…

Steps To Include In Your Regimen

When I started looking into proper hair care there where so many terms and phrases that I was negligent of. I was way left of a lazy natural and I suppose and I should more accurately be described as a hair deadbeat. All of the different processes and time it may take to carry them out were and still are overwhelming. I’ve talked about a few of these and will be talking about the rest at some point, it’s a lot to learn but at least we can learn together! So for the uninitiated, here are just a few steps…

DIY Beauty Products: My First Time

One of the things going on a journey like mine has shown me, is that the you can make almost any product you put on your skin or hair yourself. So I challenged myself to make the gift sets I would normally buy as Christmas presents for my family. I scoured my Pinterest board and came up with a shortlist of things to attempt. Scrubs, lotions and hair creams where my goal, I gave myself a couple of days and off I went to make The Woeful To FroFull Christmas Pampering range. I did have to buy a lot of…

Think Of The Children(‘s Hair)…Part 2

In part one, I talked through what I think I should be doing for my kid’s hair up until the washing stage and now I’ll continue with the odyssey that is talking through and typing out notes on a healthy hair journey. I may repeat myself from last time but it’s late and I’m a novice at blog writing so cut me some slack 🙂 For some hair types, the hair needs to be washed everyday, well I feel lucky that isn’t me because my hair needs a lot of moisture so washing with shampoo is the last thing I…

Think Of The Children(‘s Hair)

I have three kids, three beautiful kids, three beautiful kids with a lot of hair! I have taken better care of their hair than my own but I haven’t done their gorgeous curls justice. Now that I am on this healthy hair journey for myself, I know that I need to make sure I look after their hair properly because they are too young to do it themselves. It’s frustrating though that they don’t have hair like mine (coarse afro) or their Dad (wavy European type hair) which would mean I could just replicate what either of us does on…

My 1000 Word Project #3

So I decided this week to try to write a romance story. It’s a hard genre for me to share as I feel like there is an assumption that it must be about me, something that has happened to me and it must be real, well more real than a story about aliens and fairies. I don’t think that you always need to bear bare bear (?) bare your soul with everything that you write but you need to put a part of your soul into everything you write. Maybe that’s why I’ve never felt full satisfaction from my writing…

Apple Cider Vinegar Stinks!

It really does! I had  read a few articles about ACV (another abbreviation to learn). I read about how great it is at cleansing your hair of product buildup. Also in reducing frizz (not a massive problem when you’ve less than an inch of hair) and adding shine. Some even use this exclusively to wash their hair when they feel the buildup is too much. There was excitement to try it and add to my regimen. Then I opened the bottle and was horrified that anyone expected me to put that in my hair. “The smell goes away,” they say.…
