Olive oil mask

Hair results

 Okay so wow.

Thanks to Clfatgirl I tried an olive-oil mask on my hair. Here are the results:

I couldn’t be happier! I’ll admit I had a little bit of conditioner in my hair, but it was the time where I’d have washed it and completed my conditoning routine, but instead I decided to coat my hair in olive oil.

I left it in for 36 hours and took it out this morning.

I couldn’t be happier, loving this hair-sharing community. So so happy. Thank you!

Let’s keep sharing! 

Nothin’ Was The Same

Hair results, The Motion

Okay so you know how I said my hair was a dream the other night? That was short-lived. I did bugger all to my hair when I got in – I just fell asleep. 

Surprise surprise, Saturday morning it didn’t look too good. I know it’s because I hadn’t put enough product in it, hence the slight fluffy, yet-soft head of hair I rocked. 

So I began the process. 

As you can see, it was daylight – that was Saturday morning and I happily had my hair up in a neat bun. I’d ran out of my own hair conditioner, but thankfully I had just enough to cover the remaining half of my hair that, though damp, looked awful. So, the motion. 

A whole 24 hours later I took my hair out (normal for me).   

 However these were the results. Still-damp in places, conditioner dense, flat (just because it hasn’t dried out enough yet), hair. Nah.


So I put it back up and went shopping

That was around midday. It’s now 7.30pm. Isn’t it funny how sometimes, even if you do the exact same process (and use the same products – not strictly true in this case, but still), the results vary? Crazy eh?

I’ll remove the elastic and wrap it in an old t shirt tonight. Excited to see and share my results tomorrow! 

Last night

Hair results

You know when you’re out, you know your hair will choose its own path as the night continues, but as the night draws to an end and you check yourself in the mirror and you realise your hair has stayed good all night? That happened to me on Friday 😀 

I didn’t have much product in my hair at all, just enough to keep it in a cute bun. But yesterday post-jog, I took it out and absolutely loved the results. Big, soft, lovely hair. 

That was at 1.50pm exactly because I’d just got back into work after lunch. 

I was out for another 12 hours. Hair stayed lovely and big to my delight. 

As the night wore on I didn’t notice the moisture coming out of my hair as opposed to it feeling a little (tiny), bit drier. I also noted that my hair was leaving a little bit of oil on my hands. This doesn’t happen when I use Avalon Organics or Sukin, so I’ve realised I need to amend the ingredients I use in my own blend first. 

I will keep you guys posted re the final product I’ll be shipping out to fellow hair bloggers that would like to try my home-made hair conditioner, under my company name Shamrock and Lime.



So lately.


Way back when (Saturday) my hair looked half decent


Post interrupted be she there’s a rather long-legged spider on the floor in my bathroom. One second *gets a glass* 

So. Lately I’ve been short of time, which makes me prioritise aka forget about my hair. It’s the least of my problems, in fact it is not a problem at all. I simply have far more pressing issues than hair maintenance (like momentarily trapping a spider until I put it outside). 

When you’re time-poor, how do you handle your hair? Please comment below. 

It has been five days since my hair has been rinsed, deeply conditioned, or had any sort of extra conditioning moisture. 

Five days is typically my cut of point. Consequently my hair currently resembles a dry, and short bush in the middle of a drought. 

I’ll remedy it in the morning. Now I need to sleep. 

– Please do share your tips, it would be nice to know how I can keep, or at least attempt to make my hair look good without the effort of going through the motion again. 

My process

Hair results, Mornings, The Motion

This is how I do it.    

Whilst I’m in the shower I rinse my hair and rub the roots; I no longer use shampoo. Instead I hold my head under the shower and rinse My hair for about 5 minutes. 

Post-shower and the gentlest towel-dry (just so it’s not dripping everywhere), I work the conditioner through my hair, starting at my roots and running through to the ends.


I try and stretch it out, whilst being as gentle as possible. This usually takes about 5 minutes if I’m really taking my time, but this photo was taken when I was getting ready for work: I had 8 minutes exactly. 

Once my hair is nicely conditioned, u out it up in a bun. It looks light a tight one, but you wouldn’t believe, it’s easy to wrap your hair in a bun, by carefully twisting it up.  

I usually do this before work – it takes me no more than 10 minutes for me to really work the conditioner through my hair would you believe. I then leave it in a bun, up for the whole day and sleep on it. 

– I’ve yet to invest in silk pillows or consider wrapping my hair before bed to maintain curl prettiness, but like I said, this is my process. I’ll update you when I change it. 

The following day I’ll leave my hair up, usually until the evening, when I take it out and it looks like this:

As you can see there’s a touch of product on my hair -I usually leave it and within the hour it just moisturises in, I don’t do a damn thing! 

Ignore my face, I had suncream on. 

Thoughts on my hair – do you guys like it? 

I’ve been considering changing up my process by wrapping my hair in some sort of cloth / old t shirt, for those times when I sleep on my hair and it’s a bit damp (I hate such times). 

Please share your thoughts fellow hair-bunnies. I’m considering shipping my hair conditioner out to a few fellow bloggers in the next few weeks. If you’d like some, get in touch.

How is everyone feeling this Thursday morning? I’m tired and a bit weary because of work, but last nights sleep was beautiful – I could’ve had another hour though. 

Nonetheless here’s my hair this morning. I didn’t expect to have my hair out today, but thoughts on random times where you don’t plan on cute hair and it looks good.

Note I wrote that this morning all grumpy. I am SCHWEET this afternoon.

Happy Thursday lovely hair people.
