🌸 Happy Saturday 🌸 I’ve been a bit quiet on here recently, all this moving, working and adjusting to my new life’s challenges has meant my hair has taken a bit of a back seat! I’m still ticking along and sticking to my routine and trying lots of new products, so there will be lots of new content coming soon I promise! In the meantime, is there any topics you’d like me to talk about? Porosity? Protein? Frizz? Let me know below! . . . . . . . . .

🌸 Coloured Curls 🌸 So I’ve been officially back to blonde for two whole weeks now- I’m so happy I took the plunge to go back blonde. Some of you will know I was trying to grow out my natural colour (a dark blonde) and I managed for 10 months, however I just didn’t feel like it truly represented me! At the time I did a post about dying it responsibly however now I’ve been blonde for a couple of weeks I wanted to talk a little bit about after care. The biggest difference I’ve noticed since dying my hair is how dry it feels (honestly, it’s incredible what one dye will do!) so my priority at the moment is to get it back to its previous hydrated state without compromising on the colour. Since dying it I’ve only had one wash day (see two posts back) where I used a really intensive conditioning treatment and followed up with a cowash both from @asiamuk I decided to opt for a cowash instead of a shampoo, as I felt that my hair only needs a very gentle cleanse as it’s quite dry I don’t want to strip it too much. I followed up with a leave in, which I have used in all my refreshes since to provide a bit of extra moisture. I’ve also been using @mahoganynaturalsltd daily leave in spray each day to keep dryness at bay! For the next few weeks I’ll be deep conditioning each week and only very gently cleansing my hair. I am worried about colour fade, or it turning a yellowish colour so I may use a purple shampoo or pop a teeny bit of purple dye into my conditioner (a tip from the genius @marisascurls). So many of you have asked me for tips with coloured curls - I’m still learning too but I’ll make sure to share all my tips with you! . . . . . . . . .

🌸 Curly Fringes 🌸 So I’ve had my curly fringe for almost three weeks now, and I absolutely LOVE it! I feel like I’ll be committing to this style for a long time- and I’m so flattered that so many of you love it too. I’ve never had a fringe before so it’s taken a bit of getting used to and I wanted to share what I’ve learnt so far with you. As some of you will know, I absolutely love low-maintenance hair, my dream wash day is to use a CG friendly shampoo & conditioner, whack in a cream and a gel and then let it dry naturally. I tend to follow a rule where I let my curls fall where they want so I don’t really have a strict parting. That was, until, I got a fringe! I’ve had to adjust to being a bit more regimental when it comes to styling: I now have to brush my hair (wet) set my parting and find my fringe and then apply styling products. It’s also meant it’s hard to apply products upside down, or do the plopping method! Also if I let my fringe dry naturally it goes a bit wonky so I diffuse on a low heat, which will hopefully help create a better curl pattern in time for summer! The other big change is I’ve found my fringe curls don’t last as long between washes, I guess it’s because they’re on my face and I probably touch them more than I should! So I’m refreshing every other day at the moment but hopefully I can reduce this soon! All in all I LOVE my fringe and I’m so happy I took the plunge! I’m really excited to see some of your curly fringes if you’ve been inspired so please send me your pictures! 😘 . . . . . . . . . .

🌸 @asiamuk wash day 🌸 Treated myself over Christmas to a whole load of As I am products to try. I’ve heard so many good things about this brand so I thought it was about time I tried them too! To wash: Intensive hydrating deep conditioner Cowash To style: Leave in Curl jelly And then I diffused to dry! Really loving the products so far, think they will definitely become a regular brand for me! Cowash is a fairly new product to me so it’s taking a while for me to get used to it but the deep conditioner and leave in are amazing! Super hydrating, my hair has been a bit dry since I dyed it so it really soaked it up. I perhaps could have used more jelly as I do a have a little frizz, but whenever I try a new product I always try to use it in moderation. Obviously my hair has gone through a lot of changes recently with the cut and colour and I’ll be sharing my tips for fringes and dyed hair this week! . . . . . . . . . .

💖 BLONDE BABY 💖 I can’t tell you how good it feels to be blonde again! The wonderful @chloeherve_ at @bebopldn has worked her magic again and I honestly couldn’t be happier! As you’ll know I was trying to grow out my natural colour ( a very dark blonde) to help the health of my hair, however, I felt it didn’t suit me, and it wasn’t making me feel totally confident so I’ve reverted back to blonde. And I’m so happy I did as I feel like Elle woods and totally fabulous! I know so much more about haircare than I did a couple of years ago, so I’m very confident that we dyed it responsibly using olaplex and I will continue to care for it so there’s minimal damage. Happy Sunday 🌸💖 . . . . . . .

Starting 2019 with a fresh look ✂️ A HUGE thank you to @chloeherve_ at @bebopldn for making all my fringe dreams come true! I’ve wanted a fringe for YEARS and I’ve always been told i couldn’t have one with curly hair, but Chloe totally understood my vision and made it happen. What a babe. . . . . . . . . . .

🌸 WASH DAY RESULTS 🌸 It’s the first wash day of 2019! Yay! Today was a very exciting washday as it’s the first time I’ve tried the @asiamuk coconut cowash and leave in! I don’t have much experience with cowashes (I tend to prefer a using a CG cleanser or shampoo) or a “proper” leave in (I tend to go for a light leave in spray) but I can honestly say my first impression is a good one and I was pleasantly surprised by both products! I’ll do a full review soon once I’ve had a bit more experience using both products. So today I washed with the @asiamuk coconut co wash and finished with the leave in then styled with the @onlycurlslondon curl cream and gel (I only used a small amount of styling products as I wasn’t sure how they’d work with the as I am stuff). Very happy with the results! Lots of volume and definition- also can’t believe how long my hair has gotten recently! I’m getting a cut this week but I’m going to try and keep the length. Happy Sunday 🥰🌸 . . . . . . . . . .

Gotta love a scrunchie! I love wearing my hair in a pineapple, I just think it’s so fun (and for some reason I find it easier to concentrate when it’s up) also they look SO FUN. A huge thank you to @naturalkind_ who sent me one of their grey satin scrunchies to try! . . . . . . . . .

🌸 Naked Curls 🌸 If you’ve watched my story today you’ll know I’ve had a little disaster with the shower this morning meaning I couldn’t do the wash day if planned, however @curlicue_lu has been showing her beautiful naked curls recently so I thought it was a good excuse for me to give a try! I try to do a “no product wash day” every few months to see how my hair is changing, it also gives me a good chance to see what areas I need to work on. So today I used the @sheamoisture 10-in-1 multi benefit masque and that’s it! I didn’t add any styling products, I just let my curls dry. Honestly, I’m totally amazed at the results, if I’d of done this even 3 months ago my hair would have been a total mess... I wouldn’t have even left the house! And yet today- okay I have frizz and they look a little dry- I actually have some defined ringlets and actual curls coming through! It shows that all my hard work IS paying off, and my hair IS actually changing! Check out @curlicue_lu feed to see her amazing results! . . . . . . .

Well that went quickly! 2018 flew by in a flash and yet so much has changed- I feel like I haven’t stopped to catch my breath! This year has been huge for me - I quit my job, moved cities and started a new career, but overall it’s been overwhelming positive and I’m can’t wait to make 2019 my best year yet. My hair has come in leaps and bounds, the biggest hair lessons for me have been simplicity and the importance of technique. (Swipe to see my favourite hair days from this year!) I learnt that you can have all the fanciest products out there, but if you’re not listening to what your hair wants it won’t make a bit of difference, so you’ve got to do a lot of trial and error to find out what works for you! My best hair month was definitely August- I think my hair just LOVES air drying in the sunshine- it always gives me the best results! I’m still tweaking my routine, but I feel so happy that I’m finally in love with my curls and I will be sharing a lot more tips and tricks this year! (keep an eye out for video tutorials!) - so thank you for joining me on my hair journey! My resolution for this year is to make more of an effort to show kindness and positivity each and every day- what’s yours? Happy New Year ❤️😘 . . . . . .

🌸 Happy Wednesday 🌸 Hands up if you’re excited for Christmas?! I’m literally so excited, I go to Ireland on Saturday to see my family and I honestly can’t wait! What are your Christmas plans? In other news this week has been soo crazy for me, I’ve just moved and I’ve realised in the process I’ve forgotten my hair dryer and diffuser, most of my products, my hair brush and my silk pillow cases 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ So this week I’m trying to do CG with out all the bits and bobs I usually use- it’s proving a struggle but not impossible! But bare with me as life’s sort of gotten in the way so posting isn’t really priority right now, however I have so many things lined up for the new year- and if you have any suggestions for things you’d like to learn about comment them below! . . . . . . . . . .

🌸 Wash Day Results 🌸 If you’ve watched my story today you’ll know that @mahoganynaturalsltd kindly sent me a range of their wonderful products to try- and I used them all in today’s wash day! I’m so pleased with the results (and my hair smells like a tropical forest), I’ll do review posts of the individual products this week, but here’s the low down on today’s wash day: To wash: firstly I used the mahogany naturals coconut water restorative hair mask for about 40 mins, then used their apple cider vinegar shampoo. Then I used my fave, @onlycurlslondon conditioner. To style: I raked the Mahogany Naturals daily moisturising Leave in Treatment through my curls, then applied @royal_locks_hair_care pro curl cream gel (love love love this product). Then SOTC with the mahogany curls healing oil serum! Love the results, I received sooo many compliments on my hair today which is always a good sign! Will do a more in-depth review of the individual @mahoganynaturalsltd products in the week so watch this space! Also big news! I’m moving to London next week to start a new job at one of my favourite charities- I can’t wait! I’ll try to keep posting as regularly as a can but bare with me as it’s going to be a busy few weeks ☺️❤️ . . . . . . . .
