London, UK

Today it's time to review the HERBAL ESSENCES HELLO HYDRATION SHAMPOO on my natural hair. 
This moisture & shine shampoo with Hawaiian coconut extract for dry/damaged hair is quite popular in the natural curly hair community, but not all the comments are positive. 
I found this shampoo at Wilko and it was half price (I paid it £1.66 for 400ml, a real bargain!). I decided to give it a go since I run out of my favourite shampoo and I'm always on the look out for great products. 
You can find the Herbal Essence shampoo also in other supermarkets like Boots or Superdrug

Before buying this product, I made some researches about the ingredients to see what's inside and I found out that NOT all the ingredients are NATURAL, so if you use just 100% natural products for your hair this is NOT the shampoo for you. 

A very positive aspect about this shampoo is that it has a light consistency that helps spreading the product everywhere and the cap is really practical and easy to use, especially when having wet hands in the shower. 
Another positive aspect is definitely the coconut smell on your hair after using it! I'm obsessed with everything coconut, so for me this is a very big plus!
The main negative side is definitely the presence of silicons, sulphates and other chemicals. Because of them, my hair didn't feel as clean as it usually feels after using shampoo.  


 To get the result in the picture below, I finished my hair routine with the TREsemme Naturals conditioner (link of the review here), finger detangled my hair, rinsed all the product out, repeated the whole procedure twice and at the end styled my hair. 
In conclusion, I would give this shampoo a 7-.

Have you tried this product? What do you think about it?

Hey girls! How's your week sgoing? Mine wonderfully! I was really excited to share with you today this post. Last week I received a LeMotto t-shirt from SheSheBonBon, a site where you can find beautiful writing tees. This is my first official collaboration post and I am so excited to share with you how I decided to style the t-shirt that I've received.

 Each LeMotto tee is an handwritten graphic presented on the tshirt using screen or heat print. 

As the site says "This isn't just a fashion tee. It's a  way for you to share something positive. A few powerful, constructive words. An opportunity to raise the common discourse. A chance to inspire those around you and look good doing it. It`s not just a tshirt. It`s a chance to share what you stand for". I couldn't agree more! 

The fabric is very soft and light at the same time. Few people smiled at me after reading the motto on my tee and that is what made my day! I think sometimes we criticise and judge too easily instead of accept and respect each other. 

Did you like how I styled my t-shirt? Have a lovely Monday y'all!

2 EASY WAYS TO TIE A HEADSCARF ON SHORT NATURAL AFRO HAIR

London, UK
Let`s get this weekend starteeeeeeeed! I can't wait for the weekend to begin, but before that I really want to share with you two quick & easy styles that are perfect for curly short hair!
What do you need for these styles? Only 3 minutes and your best scarf! 

 THE CLASSIC TWIST...



1. Choose a scarf of your liking. In this case, I chose a slim rectangular fluo green scarf (measures are 65x5 cm).
2. Place the scarf's centre at the nape of your neck, bring it around and hold the ends out in front.
3. Twist the ends in the opposite direction.
4. Tuck in the loose ends under the foulard.



..or THE BOW TIE


1. Choose a scarf. In this case, I chose the same slim rectangular fluo green scarf. 
2. Place the scarf's centre at the nape of your neck, bring it around and hold the ends out in front.
3. This time, create a bow at the top of your head with the ends.


Easy peasy lemon squeeze! Which method do you see yourself rocking?

BLACK TEA RINSE FOR HAIR GROWTH | TIPS FOR HEALTHY AND STRONG NATURAL AFRO HAIR

London, UK

 
I'm constantly looking for tips about natural curly hair care and yesterday I found a pretty good one. I'm talking about tea rinse

I found out that tea rinse helps decrease the hair shedding, promotes hair growth, softens and helps hair manageability.

HOW TO DO A TEA RINSE:

All you have to do is boil some water, add 1 or 2 tea bags and let it steep for 5-10 minutes. 
After the tea is ready, pour the tea directly on your hair after you've conditioned you hair. 
To help your application, you could possibly use a spray bottle or an applicator to avoid mess and be more precise.

Once you finish applying the tea on your entire head, what I would suggest is to use the tea as a leave-in and go ahead in styling your hair as you prefer.

I did notice shinier and softer hair so I will definitely use this technique more often.

Did you ever tried a tea rinse? Was it helpful?

BRAID OUT ON WET NATURAL SHORT AFRO HAIR

London, UK
I admit it: I like to play and style with my natural hair. A lot! 
Sometimes though, I like to stick to the classics so afro it is!

Today I wanted to try the TREsemme NATURALS NOURISHING MOISTURE CONDITIONER (you can see my review about this conditioner clicking here) as a simple leave-in and show you guys the results.

If you want to find out how I achieved this look, keep reading!

As usual I started with freshly washed hair. I prefer to wash my hair before every hairstyle just because damp and already detangled hair is easier for me to manipulate. 
If you want to replicate this look and just use the irreplaceable water spray bottle (my BFF, by the way), it's fine!

I applied a small amount of TREsemme conditioner on my damp hair before start doing anything. This time I decided to go for a braid out result. 
Today I was looking for a fresh and messy look: that's way I wasn't so precise while braiding my hair.

When your hair will be completely dry, is time to undo the braids! 
As you can see, my hair is moisturised, shiny and fluffy thanks to the conditioner. 

Do you like the result?
