My Bleach London Super Cool Hair Colour Experience

Hello beautiful people - long time no see! It's safe to say my hair has changed a bit recently. My hair has changed more in the past three months than it has in my whole 24 years of life! Since my big chop on New Year's Eve for Age UK, I have bleached my hair and dyed it nearly every colour of the rainbow... literally.

Dyeing My Hair Black: Shea Butter Cottage Henna and Indigo Review

In preparation for my new protective style, I decided to dye my hair black following the henna and indigo two step method. There has been a massive buzz around Sheabutter Cottage in the UK natural hair community, and rightly so, as the Ghana-born creator Akua Wood not only flies the flag for successful black owned businesses, but also proudly supports fair trade and invests in the education of children in the Eastern region of Ghana. Therefore, I was extremely excited to review the SheaButter Cottage henna and indigo powder during my hair dye experience. Have a read of my honest review below...

Curly Hair Mag Launch

On Tuesday 28th July I was invited to the launch of a brand new FREE magazine, written for and by the natural hair community in the UK - Curly Hair Magazine. I met Chloe (@thelazycurls) in Stratford Westfields, and after a quick costume change in Forever 21 (don't ask) we headed down to Soho, to the gorgeous Grace Bar on Windmill street. Find out what familiar faces were at this event, as well as all the fun we got up to at what was one of the best natural hair events EVER.

The Truth About My Faux-Locs

For 6 weeks I had my hair in faux locs - a protective style that creates the illusion of real dread locs using extensions twisted around your own hair. The response was fantastic; my family, friends, colleagues AND students all seemed to love them, and I LOVED the versatility of having long hair. But what was it really like carrying 9 bags (no exaggeration) of extra hair on my head? Would I recommend it? And most importantly, would I ever get them again? Read on to find out the truth about faux locs.

My Life

Ella Eyre: PLEASE show your natural hair!

  Ella Eyre - the London starlet with a big voice and even bigger hair... or is it? Her hair is adored by millions, even provoking my friend with naturally straight hair to say she wanted to get a perm to 'look like Ella Eyre' just the other day. On the other end of the spectrum, her beautiful loose bouncy curls have helped to encourage those with naturally curly hair to ditch the straighteners and/or the dreaded chemical relaxer (insert horror movie scream). However, would the world's love of her hair be as strong if they saw it in it's natural texture? And what are the implications of the world only being shown an altered version of her natural hair? Read on to find out why I am asking Miss Eyre to PLEASE show off her natural hair.
