April Length Check

As you guys may have seen in my last post I'm basically really bad at length checks so I'm going to follow this guide to keep check of my progress.

I know this is a bit of a random time to do a length check but I've been home from university this week so I can get proper photos.

Please excuse my messy curls.

Trying a cult favourite: Kanechom and silicon mix.

A few years ago I heard about dominican (I think) products called kanechomn and silicon mix. These people here and here were raving about how it made their hair look and feel.

April Inversion: Update

After completing inversion for a week I can say that if I hold my hair one way it looks like I've gained an inch. If I hold it a different way I haven't gained anything.

To cut a long story short, I really can't tell if i've made progress but I'm assuming I haven't.

I think I need to improve my length check techniques, I read a great post here about length checks and will follow thing method in future.

Have you had success with inversion?

April Inversion.

As part of my new year goals I said I would do the inversion challenge once a month but I've either been busy, or haven't completed it. This month I'm determined to give it a proper try.

If you don't know what it is continue reading, but some people gain an inch or more in one week.

Here is my before picture, which shows that my hair has retained an inch since January so i've lost about 1/2 an inch from breakage which I have now corrected:

Help! I don't know what to do with my child's curly hair.

I get a lot of Emails and comments from mothers and fathers who have no idea how to care for their curly/ multiracial/ mixed hair, and I can totally sympathise as my mother (who has fine, bone straight hair) had NO clue what to do with my hair when I was a child.

Design Essentials STS has caused a set back?

Hi all, my dissertation is in so I'm having a little break before starting revision for my final year exams. I have been meaning to post this for a lonnnggg time  so here goes.

Some of you will remember that I got a treatment by design essentials called the Strengthening Therapy System or STS. You can read about it here. I loved it and even bought a bottle of it so I could do it at home!



Recently, I had a look over photos of my hair for 2013 and noticed my lack of progress. Here I try to work out if it's due to this system or something else.

Be right back!

Some of you may have noticed I shut down my blog for about a week recently. Well I've opened it up again (for now).

Just thought I'd let you guys know that I won't be posting much over the next few weeks as it is my final year of university and I need to focus on my dissertation at the moment.

Sorry if this is annoying, feel free to ask me questions still but I may take a little longer than usual to reply.

My mild protein conditioner

Rather than having big protein treatments every so often I choose to use a protein based conditioner more regularly. My current favourite is this!
