The Christmas Spirit

I hate winter. Hate talk about when we’re expecting snow. I hate shopping for presents. And I HATE wrapping presents. But I love Christmas. I love the over indulgence. And I love cheesy jumpers. I love the Doctor Who Specials. I love Christmas dinner and the family time. So me and Christmas have a love/hate relationship.

Song Of The Month – December 2017 – Are You That Somebody? by Aaliyah

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjDM0Fz5ccU[/youtube] The beat of this song is soooo strong. I feel, apart from the string vests in the video, this sound and look would hold up today, no question. Aaliyah is one of those artists, because she passed away, whose greatest potential was never met. Yes she was pretty big but her last album was about to blow up in…

SEO: What’s That All About Then?

SEO, huh, good god What is it good for? Absolutely EVERYTHING, listen to me! And if you don’t know that reference, get off my page…now! Just kidding, I need the likes. I spent a lot of time avoiding using SEO because I didn’t like the idea of it but I had that light-bulb moment. The one where you realise you…

End Of The Tub Review: SheaMoisture Superfruit 10-In-1 Renewal System Conditioner and Hair Masque

As we all know, SheaMoisture is one of the largest natural hair care brands in the world even after their recent marketing missteps. If you cannot be bothered to read ingredients lists or are just looking for a brand that is more likely than not suitable for a healthy hair journey then I would say they are a good place…

Song Of The Month – October 2017 – Trick Me By Kelis

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zI339U6GS9s[/youtube] Considering this is primarily a hair blog I suppose that I would be remiss if I didn’t have Kelis somewhere on here. I’ve liked all of her albums and this is one of my favourite songs of hers after “Get Along With You”, “Caught Out There”, “Mafia”, “4th of July”…

Progress Check – September 2017

If you saw my last post you’ll know that I started a little craft project up in my hair. I’m still not sure how I feel about that but it’s all in aid of getting a head full of good, healthy hair. Progress is key, no matter how small. I will have to come to terms with the fact that in…

Why I Don’t Vlog

Honestly, there are a  million reasons why I chose to blog rather than vlog and videos like this make me wonder why anybody does?! [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOt3RROF_cU[/youtube] We need them so this doesn’t happen to us! #vloggersoftheworld I take my invisible hat off to you!

Length Check – 9 Months

I’m 75% of the way into my 1st year of my healthy hair journey and journey to tailbone length. Hair was measured on the 1st of the month and I can say with complete honesty that I was disappointed. I was at 8.5cm (3.3 inches) which means I had fallen short of the roughly 1 centimetre a month that I…

Let’s Join The Band!

I’ve been looking for ways to stretch our hair for less tangles and sleeker protective styles, well mostly my daughter’s hair anyway because she’s the one I get to play hairstyles on. I hardly have any hair to work with. My littlest son’s hair is too short to style so I’m not that bothered about his hair other than religious…

Hair Today

I just picked my hair out for the first time. Thinking I might start chasing volume rather than length ? (ignore the stuff in my hair, I’m covered in coconut oil for my prepoo). Bring on the fro! Let’s keep growing together! xx Lee xx
