So I had a rather frank conversation with my twin sister last night, who advised that I should follow my heart. It’s not so much my heart however, that’s pulling me in one direction, but my gut screaming at me. Do you ever feel like that?
Sorry for the grain, but it’s a no-nonsense bun this morning.
Not really a hair post, but sometimes you need to hear the reasons behind the hair.
The fear has gone. Thank God for love.
Roll with it kids!
I haven’t washed my hair in 2 weeks. I straightened it (with straighteners), last week Monday, but haven’t done a damn thing to it since.
Rollin’ with it. Might wash it tonight. Straight has been fun 🙂
I’m not prepared to put straighteners near my hair again for another two years. I’ll put them back in my hair and beauty drawer. Maybe I’ll keep it curly for 5 years. Straight when I’m 30? God that sounds old. Too deep for a Saturday afternoon.
Happy vibes kids.
I love me some education and learning about emulsions is an eye opener. I thought I knew all about emulsifying waxes. Nah.
Yno when you look on the back of products and see cetearyl alcohol and think eugh that sounds dodge, but no. It’s just an emulsifier.
I keep throwing this word around. For those that don’t know emulsifiers are the ingredients which combine water and oil. If you’re making your own products they’re your bread and butter.
Each emulsifier is different however. I’ve experimented with olive oil-based emulsifier before thinking Ooh-natural. But it just comes off greasy and in the non-absorbent way.
So instead I’m plumping for the natural sister emulsifier. Emu-lotion and Neals Yard natural emulsifier. I’ll post the results of the products before I send new samples out prior to the final product being dispatched.
Oh and my hair today. I took it out. I really really like it like this. Big, natural, Remedy leave-in conditioner has been absorbed, and it’s perfectly dry. I know that sounds silly, but wet hair, though gorgeous, doesn’t stay like that for long. It dries out, and the result is usually less-pretty than what it was at its damp stage.
But I love this.
I don’t usually post stuff about my family, but in the spirit of variety, I thought I’d show you how different our hair is, and share a little of our day.
We went shopping. And had really good lunch at Selfridges.
MERRY CHRISTMAS KIDS!
Washed my hair this morning, put Three Blends Remedy leave-in conditioner in and left it. Barely patted my hair dry post-shower because I was in such a rush to get to work (ha!) I worked it through my hair and allowed it, flat and everything, to just dry naturally.
After 4 hours it had puffed up a tiny bit and my curls look awfully defined. Didn’t think I’d like it like this, but I do.
After the above shot I thought I’d put it up because I want my long, stretched-out familiar curls for a family get together on the 27th.
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas!!
