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 […]

List of moisturising conditioners


Towards the end of last year I was at the mall and decided to take pics of moisturising conditioners I came across. I went into Clicks and Dischem which is where the pictures were taken. These are the moisturising conditioners that were on the shelf the day I went. If anything was out of stock […]

Split ends

I complained about split ends in my last post so I decided to do a bit of research about what causes them and how I could minimise or possibly eliminate them. Split ends are the splitting / fraying of the hair shaft. They cannot be repaired though there are products that can seal them split […]
