Hair Products (Bought), Reviews

Speed Reviews #2

I’ve tried a lot of products over the years, so many in fact, that I look at curly hair websites and think, “Ooo, it might be nice to give that a try!” to something I’ve already tried, dismissed and forgotten about! I guess that’s where being a product junkie gets you…but it also gets me a sh*t load of content for reviews so here we are again!

DIY: Almond Butter Hair Mask

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.

One Week On, Still Bald…Sort Of

I guess there is no going back now! I’m not sure why it has taken me a week to fully come to that realisation but I’m here now.
