I cut my hair :)


There is no gentle way to break this to readers of the blog so I’ll just say it!!  I cut my hair yesterday.  Really cut my hair.  I had been mulling getting my hair cut for a while and what pushed me over the edge was when I started school.  I realised I didn’t have time […]

Meet Fatima


I came across Fatima on Instagram on my usual scroll through.  I was immediately struck by how thick and healthy  her hair looks.  I asked her to share her hair experiences here.  She answered a few questions for the blog. Where are you from? Where do you live? My name is Fatima Yikona.  I am […]

Hairline update


As promised here is an update regarding my hairline.  For the benefit of those new to the blog, I had some major thinning along my hairline from post partum shedding starting about 6 months after I had a baby (baby was born November 2013).  The shedding continued for several months.  It was all over my […]

Where have I been?


  I’m sure you are wondering where I am.  Last year I made the decision to go back to school.  At the beginning of the year I enrolled for a full time degree at a university.  I knew it would make my life busy but I don’t think I realised just how busy it would get. […]

Meet Tabitha

It’s been ages since I did a feature on someone with great hair.  I came across Tabitha, a blogger, on Instagram and I was hooked! Not only does she have great hair but she shares beautiful pictures.  I thought I’d ask her a few questions about her hair and share the responses with you. 1. […]

List of protein conditioners


As promised here is a list of protein conditioners.  As I did with the moisturising conditioners, I went to Clicks and Dischem and took pics of what I saw in store.  If a product was out of stock or unavailable on the day then it wont be pictured.  These are not the only protein conditioners […]

My henna experience

20150125_115740 (1)

Let me just start by saying I love henna. I’ve been asking myself why I didn’t try it sooner! I finally used my henna last Friday.  I used 2 of the 6 blocks that make up the Lush Cosmetics henna.  Next time I will use 3 blocks because I had to scrape the inside of […]



I got some henna from my fellow hair guru Wisaal.  She got it for me from Lush while on a trip to Durban.  I am planning to use it soon so I have been reading up on it to prepare myself.  I thought I’d share what I have learnt. Henna is made from the dried […]
