Not too long ago, I told you about trying to end my product junkie ways. Props to me because I haven’t bought any hair products since the end of October. I’m very proud of myself but it also illustrates how many products I had.
Almonds are good for your hair. I wrote about some benefits not too long ago. Many haircare products that you buy contain Almond Oil. But what about Almond Butter? I knew it existed so why weren’t the hair community making a fuss about it. Soon after that thought, I went onto Google set out on a mission to find a way to incorporate this version of Almond into my routine. I found an Almond Butter recipe a few years ago. It seemed legit, so when I saw Almond Butter for sale a few weeks later at Aldi or Lidl AND on…
I’ve committed to not measuring my hair anymore. It’s unnecessary pressure. Unnecessary expectation. It’s just not really important.

So it was a bit optimistic to think that I would be able to do a blog post about my wash days every few weeks. Yea…no, that’s not going to happen. This feature will definitely be a once in a while sort of thing. But this one is kind of special. Because I’m using generic shampoo and conditioner, or more specifically, gift set Shampoo and Conditioner. Extra special due to it’s mundanity. Enter Baylis & Harding. Who else gets these gift sets every Christmas? 🎅🏾🎄🎅🏾
Let’s celebrate this momentous occasion with a #ThrowbackThursday, a way-back way back! When I still went out and celebrated…anything! Here’s to me! 🥂 This is my 250th post. And since that is a lot of blogging, I should probably fill this post with something of substance and talk about the future of the blog but honestly, I’m kind of shocked I’m still doing this so yay!!! Here’s to 250 more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I am completely aware I am overusing exclamation points!) Let’s keep blogging (and ignoring the fact that people consume video more readily than text so this blog is kind of…
The best deodorant I ever used was Mitchum Deodorant but that has aluminium in and some of the things people say about that particular ingredient are kind of scary, like actual real life scary not just I’m afraid of ponging a little bit scary. So although some of the claims are not fully substantiated, if I can go natural and not have to worry about that at all, surely that’s the better option. Enter nuud. nuud kept popping up on my timeline and after a little research I thought I’d give it a go.
When I was about 17 or 18, I said to myself, “when I turn 30, I’m going to start buying Oil of Ulay, so I stay looking young.” I will always remember it as Ulay, you will not sway me. I thought that thirty would be a good time to start caring about how old my skin looked. Because when you’re 18, 30 seems old. When I actually turned 30, I did not do this.

I did my first one of these posts in May 2017. Wow! I’ve been at this hair journey and blogging thing for a while. In the time since that last post, I’ve found more and more curly, coily and kinky sources of inspiration for me and my kids.
