✂️ it’s been a few weeks since my first from the amazing Stephanie @curly_hair_london and it’s finally settling into its style after a few washes and my own styling. So what have I learnt since my cut... . 1. I finally understand how people can DETANGLE WITH THEIR HANDS 🤯 honestly, I thought you all had special silky hair, but now I’ve got rid of the knots and unhealthy ends it’s like a new head of hair!. . 2. REFRESHING WORKS 😱 I honestly didn’t get it - I was never able to last more than a couple of days and when I refreshed it just wouldn’t work and looked awful - flat on top with no volume. Again - getting rid of the unhealthy hair had allowed me to get to day 9 from wash day!!!! . . 3. THE BACK OF MY HAIR LOOKS NICE. I’ve never been a fan of my head from the back - seems weird to say but it’s true. My hair didn’t look great and very lifeless. Well no more!! Stephanie has given it bounce, volume and it’s own personality again. . So I promise you, it may seem scary but take the plunge 🙏 . . . . .

The big chop ✂️ Yesterday I had my first EVER ‘curl by curl’ cut and OMG do I get why it’s required. I was incredibly nervous, but I have never been as confident in someone with my hair as much as I was with the amazing Stephanie @curly_hair_london 🙏 just the way she talked about curls, the CG method and styling had me at ease within seconds. . I’ve never understood why I hated hair cuts in the past, but it’s because they didn’t understand the different curl patterns on my head. Straight away Stephanie talked about my curls at the front which curl from the roots and are very tight, which we left, to the ones at the back which come out straight then curl, so had to make shorter to blend with my other curl types 🤯. . Every cut I’ve had in the past has been cut wet and never taken into account how the different curls on my head bounce and spring differently. So although I watched length going, I staying confident, and thank goodness I did 💕. . My hair may be shorter, but it has shape, layers, volume, bounce and most of all, looks HEALTHY, something people have commented which has been lovely to hear. . I already have more confidence wearing it down, so a MASSIVE thank you to Stephanie, and to all of you that have messaged me with such kind words, it has meant the absolute world 😘 I adore this . . Styling and wash products = @innersenseorganicbeauty . . . .

Last nights look, and curl results trialling @curls blueberry bliss deep conditioner. I have seen loads of people rave about it; but when @curlsfirst mentioned it was her favourite deep conditioner, I just had to get it... and oh do I understand the hype. Not only does it leave my hair smelling like blueberries (which my girls on galantines day noticed when we went out) but they feel soft, moisturised and extra defined. . So last night I used the below products and got some bomb results, I am also in love with leopard print and may have to purchase a whole new wardrobe... . Clarify = @tropicskincare clarifying shampoo. Deep conditioner = @curls blueberry bliss. Co-wash = @asiamuk co wash. Creme = @onlycurlslondon leave in creme (the only one that doesn’t weigh down my hair). Styling = @pantene mousse No.5 scrunched and raked in, followed by @twistedsista_uk gel applied using praying hands technique. . . . . . .

to pre-cg 3 years ago when I first moved to London, and my hair a few months ago after 4 months full 🌀. . Although it appears London has clearly aged me 🙈 my hair has come on leaps and bounds. Most noticeably for me is the front section and the volume I now have on top. I used to try and dry my hair as flat as possible, pulling the curls rather than letting them do their thing. I still have a long way to go, and I’m learning each wash day what does and doesn’t work for me. After finding this picture, I even looked back at when I started CG and can see a difference from 7 months ago, which is just crazy!. . I wasn’t sure if I was making progress, but looking back I can 100% tell I have - so make sure you keep looking back at how far you’ve come, because that’s the best gauge for your hair!. . . . . . .

- if you don’t get a good picture first time, don’t worry about it ✨ on average how many pictures do you take before you get one you’re happy to put on instagram? 🤔. . It’s not usually my hair I’m not happy with, more my face...I had my eyes closed, pulling a funny expression, my mouth looks wonky, my face looks weirdly long, the lighting makes me look so pale... and so much more 🙄. . I’m not great at posing or taking selfies (unless I’ve had a drink then I basically think I’m a celebrity 💁‍♀️😂), I’m much better when someone captures me by accident, or it’s a more natural shot, and I’m the biggest critic of myself. However creating a ‘Curlygram’ to document my I’ve had to get better at them and not be as judgemental, yet still I take about 10 million before I find one I like. . So I guess my point is, you’re not alone if it takes you 30 shots before you get one you actually like. I guarantee, every other curly you follow will take a few before they get one they share 😘 . . . . .

Wash day fails 😫 I have pretty much had 3 wash fails this week, one being a no wash so am having a hair nightmare. I am also trying to get booked into hair salons and everywhere is fully booked... so it’s a flat hair week, literally!! Below is a summary of the disasters: . 1. I had to do a quick wash Sunday night ready for Monday when I get up super early and drive to work. Error = not drying properly before bed so the curls were wonky, I had no volume and a flat top!. 2. To rectify, I took everything with me for a night away on Tuesday to have a full curl pamper evening. Error = my hotel room stunk of smoke and they were fully booked so couldn’t move. I didn’t want to risk my wet hair catching the smell and stinking of a bonfire the next day 🙄. 3. I finally had a proper wash day on Thursday, but made fatal product errors - I put WAYYYYY too much creme and gel in and left loads of conditioner in - my hair feels awful, coarse, dry, ‘producty’ and just unclean!!. . So what have I learnt?? My fine curls really struggle with conditioner and leave in together. Getting the balance right is an art I’ve not yet mastered so they have hold for a few days but aren’t weighed down and can’t breathe. I have also learnt not to rush it. I need to wait until I have a good couple of hours to deep condition and diffuse, not panicking and messing it up. . So tomorrow morning I will try and get a good wash day, as I am out all day today doing activities it is not worth washing as I shall be getting sweaty skiing and being a gladiator (long story!), . I will let you know how I get on. Let me know if you’ve had some wash day fails this week too!!. . . . . . .

OMG this volume 😮 so this weekend I channelled the goddess that is @mamasitta 💁‍♀️ and tried her wash ‘n’ go, styling upside down then flipping, rather than styling my hair in the way I like it to sit... result = a much deeper normal parting but so much more volume at the roots!! Will I do this again?? HELL YASSSSSS. . Clarify = @tropicskincare clarifying shampoo. Deep condition = @mauimoisture . Conditioner/leave in = @sumilayi (a new leave in I’m trying and will review soon). Styling = @pantene mousse No.5 and @twistedsista_uk gel. . . .

- One for the single curlies, do you ever feel self conscious about your curls meeting someone new? 🤔🤷‍♀️. . I had a first date last week and washed my hair on purpose, made it look lovely and ringletty, deep conditioned and everything... then last minute panicked and put it up!. . Now I’ve learnt to love my hair, and it’s been a journey, but over the years I’ve had dates react to my hair in a marmite way, I’ve even had ex’s dictate how to wear it at times 🤦‍♀️, so my confidence to rock my curls down meeting someone new is low, let alone letting them see past day 2 hair that’s for sure 😬. . As much as I do past opinions can get to me and they can still be an insecurity, so wondered if others have experienced the same? . No matter what date number, I still get nervous turning up with my curls unleashed, and I shouldn’t, I should own them, and this incredibly supportive has definitely helped - every one of you is and a confidence boost. . So ladies let’s embrace our curls together, and if you are heading out on a date, rock them, wear them down and show them off to the world... and make sure to tag me in them to see 😘 . . . . . .

How I SOTC and pick for volume 🌀. . I’ve recently had a few people ask what SOTC and a ‘cast’ is in relation to the so thought I would do a post and video to explain. First thing you need to know, SOTC means ‘scrunch out the crunch’. . When you use a gel, it dries and leaves your hair hard, with a crunchy coating or a ‘cast’. By scrunching your hair gently with your hands, you break the cast to reveal soft, defined curls underneath. . Many people will also scrunch out the cast with an oil to help reduce frizz and protect the hair. I personally find just a little @righteousrootsoils seals my ends. . After I have SOTC, I then grab my trusty picking comb and loosen my curls from the roots underneath. This adds volume without creating frizz at the top. . Now not all gels will leave a cast, it will also depend on how much you use and how much you fiddled with your hair while diffusing. But if I use a good amount and am strict when diffusing to not play with my hair too much, then I will get a cast like in the video - that although takes a little more patience to SOTC gently, it is worth it for the definition 🌀. . . . . . .

FAVOURITE PRODUCT FRIDAY 💕 so I thought I would start sharing some of my favourite products that I’ve come across since starting the in July last year, and my first shoutout 100% has to be @onlycurlslondon . . As with all products, I have tried Only Curls many times before mastering the amount, application technique and products to pair it with. But it’s safe to say perseverance is key as it’s one of the best products I’ve found for . Because my hair gets weighed down so easily, the lightness of Only Curls curling creme and gel is perfect, leaving my hair feeling soft, defined yet full of volume, and you don’t even need loads!. . So what have I learned? Well, I need to clarify or shampoo so my hair is totally clean and product free before application. Otherwise because it is so light I don’t get the definition and have more frizz than usual if it can’t make direct contact with my hair follicle due to all the product sitting there. . But, if I have shampooed, deep conditioned, and co-washed my hair.... oh boy does it work wonders. So @onlycurlslondon is fast becoming my lightweight one true love 💕🙏. . . . .

ft. WET 💦 vs. DRY 💨 (why is there no hair dryer emoji 🤔). I’ve washed my hair to head off to Belgium with work today and I wanted to do a quick snap of the difference. It shocks me every time!!. . I see my hair wet and think I look super weird, it’s so flat and lifeless, but every time, we curlies get this awesome transformation - you never think that the length will spring as much as it does, but each time I’m proved wrong. The caveat is you never quite know how it’s going to turn out, how each curl will form or even what length you will have in the end 🤷‍♀️. . I love seeing everyone’s pictures and was inspired by the queens that are @hif3licia@curlicue_lu@curly_tanisha and @curlsbyshelly to share mine, so make sure to tag me in yours if you do one as I’d love to see them!. . . . . . .
