Style Ideas -Swing Dancing

Hello my lovelies,

So I'm totally embarrassed by how long it's been but uni is incredibly demanding and has been completely monopolising my time. I hope to get a few posts out in the next few weeks but until then here's a new vid that I just uploaded.

Cee, I haven't forgotten about your questions, I'll be posting about pH uber soon!!

Hope this post finds you all well and thanks for being patient with me x x

To sum it all up...

Dont think this lasted. This ish shrunk right up to my scalp
#shrinkageisreal lol.

I have so much to tell you guys but no time. So i'm gonna do something I never do and keep things concise (lol). I'll be back to expound later. So hopefully once I get the 'headlines' out it'll be easier to come and fill in the gaps.

Here goes.

1) At the end of last year I started making my own cosmetics. Like from scratch. So my toothpaste, deodorant, body-ness and hair-ness are all made by moi. And it's all natural. Not kinda natural, not naturally derived. It's all natural. So natural you could probably eat it. But it would taste like crap. 

2) My hair looks like a boss all day erryday! And feels like a boss and just basically is awesome.

3) This awesomeness is not just down to my hair products. Well it is, but since this isn't an advert- the person who said products don't make a difference LIED. And here's why:

3a) pH makes a difference. Especially if your hair is highly textured. pH makes a world of difference!

3b) Bentonite clay is THE TRUTH. As in- the absolute, where have you been all my life? Truth.

3c) A product can have all the herbal extracts in the world and still suck. It's not your fault, it's the product's. Herbal extract does not automatically mean answer to all your hair problems. 9 times outta 10- if we're talking about manageability- it means absolutely nothing.

4) I have the whole wash process down. No stress, no tears, no taking a holiday to wash my hair. Washing my hair is easy.

5) I have the whole styling process down. No stress, no tears no get the picture lol.

6) Stress really does make your hair fall out = hair setback #1

7) Low pH- below 4 = broken hair = hair setback #2 lol.
7a) I wanted to see what the margin for safe pH was. Oh boy did I find out!

8) I gave up sugar.

9) Rice milk is the bomb dot com.

10) Natural hair is freaking beautiful. As in, I can't put it into words. As in, I've never felt more myself, more beautiful or more complete than now. Rocking my hair like i'm supposed to.

I'm sure there's more. There's definitely more. But that's all I can remember for now.

If there's any number that you would particularly like me to expound upon first let me know. 

Hope this find you well :)

Christmas Hair (In January lol)

Yet another updo!

Hey there dearies,

I know this is late. A month late. A month late to the day smh, but at least it's here now right? I just wanted to come and show you how I wore my hair on Christmas. I shot a video showing how I achieved this style but only God knows when I'm going to upload it, or if I ever will lol. I was really happy with how it came out. I detangled and moisturised my hair the night before with the Faith In Nature Ginkgo Biloba conditioner, sealed with a mix of rapeseed and castor oil and set my hair in chunky twists.

The next day when it came to styling my hair I decided that I wanted all of my hair off my face (which I never do) and so I used two loose flat twists to draw my hair back. Next I split the back half of my hair in two. The bottommost section was put in a low, loose ponytail and the upper section was put in a normal ponytail. I took a small section of hair, beneath each ear, and twisted. Then I split each of the ponytails in two and twisted those aswell. Finally using the godsend that is bobby pins, I pinned the twists together and hoped for the best lol.

It came out abit lopsided but I still liked it. What do you think? Would you do something like this on your hair?

Well I guess that's all for now folks!
