Needless to say I can’t wait!

The Answer To Every Mans Prayers? No Sew Satin Pillowcase

diy satin pillowcase

Just before I published the video of this quick no sew satin pillowcase, I mentioned on instagram that bedtime discussions with hubby in prep for married life had led me to a very daring verdict, and I quote…

‘Whilst Mr has seen me in all of my headscarf glory (cooking, cleaning, running errands etc) & has no complaints. I think and agree with him and other males that as a married man, occasionally wanting to see your wives beautiful hair at bedtime is no crime!’

Bulk Review : Products That Made The Cut, Or Not.

buk review

I’ve been holding this post off for some weeks now, just so that I could make sure I had trialed and tested all of the products more than once before deciding on a final verdict! Would you be surprised if I said more than one of these have become permanent residents on my staples list?! We’ll revisit my re-emerging product junkism in another post, but as for now let’s get onto the reviews already!

Natural Bride – Hairstyle Prep For My Big day!

Natural Bride

It’s Friday! No better way than to start the day blogging whilst still tucked away under my duvet as I watch the sun beam through my window and I sip on a hot cup of rosebud tea. Don’t you just love days off!

I figured today would be a great day to share my most recent DIY adventure, wedding day hair looks! Ironic really as these looks/video are partially to blame for me being so tired and needing a day off! Let’s just say 2am bed times and 6am wake READ MORE »

Tricks You Must Know For Looking After Your Own Hair When Protective Styling

I’ve got to say I thoroughly enjoyed my month of straight hair! One of my biggest fears when transitioning was that once fully natural, I wouldn’t be able to achieve the bone straight finish that my relaxed hair days had seen, without re-straightening my hair everyday and eventually frying her royal froness to dust! The trick I discovered Ladies? Wigs! My divaswig unit was an absolute lifesaver. Bone straight hair, minimal leave out and my hair safely braided up and hiding under my wig far away from my straighteners. I READ MORE »

New Hair + New Product Faves [March Updates]


Hey Loves!

I figured it was high time I gave the scoop on my current hairstyle. I must have mastered my blending game because I’ve had a few comments on how long my hair is! Haha, I wish! Give me a few months though, you never know I may just get close!

For those of you who figured it out, yes I’m sporting a wig! The Divaswigs Unit that I showed in my ‘New In’ products post earlier on in the year. It was initially sent as a full lace READ MORE »

[DIY] Super Easy & Affordable Dry Scalp Lotion – The Product I’ve Been Raving About!


Happy Monday Lovelies,

I’ve been away for a few days due to a very busy ‘last week’, but hopefully I can make up for that with the holy grail [dry] scalp lotion recipe I’ve been raving about in the last four or five posts!

Just in case you missed it, I’m on a 6 month speedy growth challenge which relies on four steps to help me grow and retain a good amount of length by August this year. One of the steps I’m depending on during the challenge is the READ MORE »

Why Replacing Your Scalp Oil May Get Rid Of Your Dry Scalp For Good

scalp lotions over oils
If there’s one thing most of us have in common or have experienced at least once during our hair journeys, it would have to be that ‘grose‘ moment when you have had to sit in front of your mirror and engage in a scalp busting session, i.e using a comb, your nails, or some sort of tool to scratch away at your flakes.

A few months ago I wrote a post titled ‘Oil Is Not A Dry Scalp Solution‘, here I discussed the benefits of washing READ MORE »

Blowdry Heat Prep With Philip Kingsley

daily damage defence extreme

It’s been 14 months since I last used a drop of heat on my hair and the craving for straight hair recently reached an all time high!  It wasn’t that I craved for the bone straight finish, but more so that I wanted to see how well my hair would take to the heat, and to get an idea of its length in a slightly straighter state.

Amidst all of the excitement about finally ending my heat stretch, I was also quite nervous. I’ve heard stories of naturals who use READ MORE »
