Detangling

Detangling: Something That Works?

A little while, like 8 months ago, so not that little, I was planning on starting a series on detangling. I was particularly exasperated at the time with all 3 kids hair. If it wasn’t for the crying and childhood trauma it would likely cause, I’d do to theirs what I did to mine. In a heartbeat. Shave it all off! But maybe I’ve found something that works?

Me And Her: Feeling Blue

It’s funny when I look at my kids, I find it hard to see any resemblance. It’s something, that if I’m completely honest, I struggle with. Most parents look like their kids. But I can’t see myself in them at all. That’s not completely true, there are fleeting moments when I see it. If I hadn’t birthed them myself, I don’t think I’d believe those gorgeous little monsters were mine. So when my daughter comes to me and says she wants colour in her hair like Mummy, how could I say no?

End Of The Bottle Review: Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Cleansing Conditioner

One of the things I told myself when I started this blog and shaved all my hair off was to not to be afraid to use different products, to trial as much as I could and feed my curiosity. It’s a good thing that I enjoy it so much as I’m always excited to try something new and see how my hair or my kid’s hair reacts. The first use of this was a bit of a disaster. I put my littlest baby in the bath, opened the conditioner ready to go and put it on the radiator while the…

Her Curls

Apparently if you braid or plait your hair and it curls like this at the ends, it means it’s healthy. I’ve been snipping away at her ends a little bit every time I’ve braided them over the last few weeks and this week I styled her hair and the end of every plait curled perfectly. Scissors go bye-bye for a few more weeks now. It was definitely a very satisfying moment for me. I suppose I must be doing something right! I love her hair, I love the way it curls, I love the colour, the feel, everything. I’ve got…

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…

Hello 2017

I don’t hate everything! I just really like this shirt my sister got me for Christmas and wanted to share. I actually think 2017 will be a good year personally and I hope the global mess that was 2016 will start to resolve itself, I’m not naming any names but it might rhyme with frump and grexit… Nearing the end of 2016 I decided to make some changes in my life. Not massive changes like quitting my job to go travelling and be a free spirit but fairly big ones like shaving all my hair off and starting a blog.…
