Y A A A S

  
Are you ever just like f*cking yes?! Because your hair is finally on bloody point? And it hasn’t taken days for it to look like this? No, it’s only taken one night, an evening, and the next day your hair is Bob Bob Ricard fancy? 

  
This morning I took my hair out and I was like damn, how, after one night – actually from 1.30pm the previous day, to this morning – of it being *washed and thoroughly conditioned, does it look like this? 

I was thinking how? How?! The answer: Three Blends. I changed the ingredients, mixed up the quantities and re-blended. Oh how I love the results. And I mean LOVE. My hair felt heavier with product this am, hence why it’s probably hanging around my shoulders tonight (massive f*cking yes to this).

  
It looks quite short and bouncy in the photos, but funnily enough it’s long and heavier tonight, which is another first. And it’s incredibly soft. I’m really impressed. 

  
YES. 

Oh, and, camera is on the way, promise.

And this dress was a present from my big sister, fits a God-damn dream.

Happy Thursday

Morning kids. Selfie in work. Unpolished. Casual. Hair is up, Three Blends working its absolute magic for tonight.     I’ve got the original blend in my hair and it smells bloody lovely. 
I added a little Jasmine and lavender for softness and scent, and when I put my hair up this morning it felt like silk! 

Note I did a tiny wash last night, put it up, slept on it and put it up again post-shower this am.

 
I’ll post the results, but absolutely loving this morning already.

I meant to post this the other day. Sunday love.   My posts are sporadic, ya I know. 
Just spreading happiness and joy. 

Okay half-true. I’m here to talk about Akin. Oh my darling hair conditioner that smells as good as it does, looks as good as it feels and truly doesn’t cost the earth. 
Akin is a luxe Aussie brand, whose haircare line has me hooked. Organic, natural, and all the other stuff that goes with such statements (paraben-free, no synthetics or unnatural crap), I have been in love with their conditioners since first-use in 2012. 

 
I’m a particular fan of their sensitive and nourishing avocado conditioners. Admittedly they’re not super-thick (not for my hair anyway), but it’s the ingredients and how they make my hair feel and smell that has me raving. 

Firstly, Akin sensitive conditioner does more than soften my hair. It makes it feel light, touchable, fresh and clean, whilst moisturised. I need that kind of loving mid-week when y hair is due a wash and I frankly cba with a deep condition- it happens. That’s when I use sensitive. 

And then there’s avocado which makes my hair just lovely. Again, it’s not a heavy product so it sinks in a treat, but considering the qualities of the oils in the conditioner, it makes my hair so damn soft. 

  
The sinking-in element of any condition is key for me. If I doesn’t sink in and I’m getting ready for work I’ll be pretty pissed off. Cursing myself for foolishly thinking a natural product would be that good that it would also magically sink in, despite me using copious amounts to make my hair manageable. Amazingly, Akin does just that. 

It’s Sunday morning and I currently have said Akin in my hair. I put it in, on top of dry 3 days-since-deep-condition-hair-last night. 

I’ll post the results later. But I love it. Very happy customer.

Daddy … When I ask you please. You know when you have a song in your head? That’s Tinashe, boss.

  

So I washed my hair..and strangely enough I think it looks longer than before (I straightened it)? Strange because I trimmed it yesterday and strange because I bumped into a friend yesterday who I haven’t seen for months and she stroked my mane in complete shock and admiringly said: “Wow Tam I’ve never seen your hair so long!” Which made my night. 

  

  

Now I know you’re thinking right… so how precisely does she get it like that? I practice what I like to call the motion, which is just a hair rinse, castor oil on my roots and I use my own / a natural, organic hair conditioner. It sounds simple enough. 

  

But I’ve also started practising the oil rub-in-roots method. I don’t know the official name for this, but my twin sister mentioned it and I’ve done it twice in it two weeks. 

  

Admittedly, not a long enough period (nor often enough), to really yield any kind of result with my hair. But I think the pictures speak for themselves. 

Oh and apologies for looking half asleep in the photos this am, I’ve a cold I’m struggling to shake off.
