End Of The Range Review: Flora & Curl

It’s possible you may not have heard of Flora & Curl but if you have a few curly ladies on your Instagram feed you may have seen them using this new British brand of beautifully handmade hair products to treat their curls and coils and it is such a treat! I can’t say I’ve been following them since day 1, I’ve only actually had my Instagram account since October of last year but I was there on product launch day with my debit card eagerly waiting to be able to buy some, proud to be what I hoped was the…

End of Tube Review: Palmer’s Olive Oil Repleneshing Conditioner

The Palmer’s Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner was one of my first purchases when I decided I was going to be serious about having a new attitude to my hair. I can’t remember exactly when I bought this but I know it was a few months before I shaved my head. I know this because I was itching to use it for at least a few months but I knew I should save it until I started the journey. Finally, after I let the razor loose, I used it for the first time. Now I can’t really give you my first…

 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…

Now I Know My Hair…(cont’d)

Now where was I… So that miracle oil, coconut oil may not actually be a miracle for me with my low porosity follicles. Which is a great shame as I have about 14 jars on top of a cupboard in my house. Oops! So some say it is too heavy for my type of hair but I honestly say I am on the fence about it. I’ve had no ill effects using it, I quite like it, not just how it makes my hair feel but, and this may make me a bit of a freak, I like melting it…

Now I Know My Hair…

I have a greater understanding of my hair now, after some tests I am pretty sure I have fine hair, low to medium density hair and low porosity hair. This a new world to me and I need to learn what all of it means. The main thing I am focusing on at the moment is the low porosity and making sure I am using the right kinds of products to keep my hair healthy, soft and moisturised. The low porosity of my hair means that the cuticles are laying flat making it much harder for moisture to penetrate, hence…

Week 2: My Old Hair Care Routine vs My New Hair Care Routine (Part 1)

As you can see, I’m making some real progress here. It’s crazy that the photos I took to announce my baldness to the world, beautifully taken by my lovely husband, are now out of date. I had that look for such a short amount of time, I’m not even sure if it was worth going THAT short. But it was fun while it lasted. I do not think my hair growth rate is even close to half an inch a month (average for everyone) but we will plod on regardless because I have no other choice. Now I am emerging…
