Hair update

I’m in cornrows again.  I still haven’t relaxed my hair.  My last relaxer is still the one I got in November 2012.  I decided to get cornrows to break from the monotony of keeping my hair in a bun.  I do still plan on relaxing my hair!

Sheer Glamour Show

Tresemme Show

  I attended the Sheer Glamour Show at South African Fashion Week (SAFW) last week.  I attended the same show in October 2012.  I must say the shows were pretty similar.  This year among the designers were Rubicon, Black Coffee, Vino and Gert Johan Coetzee.  The hair stylists were Nthatho Mashishi and Matthew Mansoor. I […]

Johnson’s baby products


Two weeks after we cut my son’s hair I received these products from Johnson & Johnson!  As soon as I opened the pack my interest was piqued because the pics on the bottles is that of a little brown baby!  It seems Johnson’s has made a line specifically for black babies and toddlers.  The pack […]

I bought a few new products


I got a few products from the United States (as if I need any more hair products).  A relative of mine travelled to the US and I asked if they could bring back some stuff for me if I bought it off  I buy this way because I get the products cheaper than I […]

Changes to the blog

old blog

Hair Update

Now that the excitement of the Healthy Hair Indaba has passed I can give you an update of my hair. As regular readers of the blog will know, I was pregnant for most of 2013.  I had my little boy at the end of November.  Because I was pregnant, I stopped relaxing my hair.  This […]

I got some Scurl!


My friend Irene got me some Scurl Curl No Drip Activator Moisturiser from Zimbabwe.  I was so grateful.  We haven’t had this moisturiser in South Africa for some time now.  This is one of the first moisturisers I used when I started taking proper care of my hair.  I even did a post on it […]
