Beginner Wednesday – Moisturisers 101

This week we focus on moisturisers.  When you wash and deep condition your hair you follow this up with a moisturiser (some use a leave in conditioner).   You then use an oil / butter to seal in the moisture from the wash, deep condition and moisturiser.  There are some oils that penetrate the hair shaft […]

This second article in the Beginner Wednesday series looks at choosing a conditioner.  Conditioner has really contributed to the health of my hair.  I deep condition my hair twice a week.  Though I switch up the products I use, the technique that I use stays the same.  After shampooing my hair, I cover it from […]

Thinking of hair colour?

I have to say upfront that I have never had my hair coloured.  I have thought of doing it several times but always chickened out.  I was always afraid I would hate the colour once I got it.  My natural hair colour is dark brown.  Years ago it would even go to a very light […]
