My Hair Routine: Taking Notes

I work in admin so I think my immediate reaction to things that are new and detailed is to take notes. I think my reaction to pretty much anything is to take notes. I used to have bits of paper all over the place. Then I got a bit more organised and would frantically scribble in notebooks and then scribble out what I had achieved, leading to pages of text you couldn’t read as I’d crossed it all out. Then I noticed the notes section in my phone and had all my notes categorised on there. But these days, I…

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…

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…

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…

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…
