Looking at bae like... 👀 so my Favourite Product Friday has to be @garnieruk banana food hair mask. I have been testing all 4 over the past few months (bought them all on offer from @bootsuk and @superdrug) and I am quite literally obsessed. Not only do they all smell divine, they leave my hair super soft for days. After trialling them all, hands down the 🍌 one is my favourite. It has the best smell in my opinion and seems to work better with my hair than the others. So once I go through them all I shall repurchase for sure 👍 anyone else tried them? . . . . . . .

- the curly girl method is just like anything else, practice makes perfect. You are going to have good and bad wash days. You are going to think you’ve mastered it, and then your curls won’t play ball. But that’s all part of the fun. Just like anything in life, you have to persevere, you may want to chop all your curls off and scream and shout at them, but please don’t, because they are beautiful. . .

and throwback to these holiday kinky curls. . I quite enjoy my frizzy curl pattern at the front for all the volume - I even had a colleague comment on the difference today from an old picture with flat hair.... all thanks to the . . . . . . . .

39 degrees... say WHAAAAT 🥵 but I hate putting freshly washed curls up, so I thought I would share one of my go to’s - bandanas!. . Sometimes I will clip my hair back when it’s hot, but I really like using a scarf or bandana as it disrupts the curl pattern less, while keeping curls off your face and even better, your neck!!. . Anyone else use these in the heat?. . . . . . . .

Frizz to the left, curls to the right . . So I attempted my holiday hair routine here in the UK this weekend and I was pleasantly surprised! I had so much creme in my hair that you could see it while wet before diffused... however it meant my ringlets held their shape and I got less frizz while diffusing... this was until I went to a boat party and the wind blew my hair possibly every direction. . However, despite one frizzy side in this picture, you can see the curl formation on the right. So I guess my point is that even a year into the CG method I am still experimenting and learning what does and doesn’t work for my hair. I used to think too much creme would weigh my curls down, but actually it seems to be reducing the frizz... and I used to think @onlycurlslondon Gel was possibly a little too light for my hair to keep the hold... but how wrong I was... time to keep practicing I think. . Shampoo = @mauimoisture Bamboo. Deep condition = @garnieruk Banana food. Conditioner = @sogooditsnoughty . Leave in = @sogooditsnoughty Creme. Gel = @onlycurlslondon . . Diffuse roots then sides till about 70% dry, air dry till about 90%, finish with diffuser. . . . .

Holiday hair can look on point 👌. . I don’t know about you, but I have always struggled with holiday hair, the different temperature, sun and sea makes my hair dry, frizzy and feel like straw. Until now!!. . Macedonia changed my view. I adapted my normal routine to the weather, did some experiments and quite frankly got better hair than I sometimes do at home 🙌. . So what did I do differently... these are my top two tips: . 1. Creme over gel - usually I do a little creme and lots of gel. However I spun that on its head and coated my curls in @sogooditsnoughty creme to keep them moisurised in the heat. I then used a light gel @onlycurlslondon and only a small coating so it wasn’t too weighed down. . 2. Very light refresh - as in water and @mauimoisture hair mist. Too much product in that heat and it’s basically a hay bale on my head 😂. . These tips may not work for everyone, but these are what I found helpful. . . . . . . . .

Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia

It’s Friday 🙌 can’t wait for the weekend although I’m definitely wishing I was back at Lake Ohrid. So I thought I would share a little about my hair routine while away. . WASH - I maybe did three full shampoo and conditioner washes in the 10 days. I used @sogooditsnoughty shampoo, conditioner and leave in, then @onlycurlslondon gel to set. . DRY - easiest air dry ever, I just sat on the balcony in the sun ☀️. . REFRESH - I did a mixture... 1. Damp hair and @onlycurlslondon gel, 2. I stole my mums technique using @mauimoisture bamboo blow out mist, i wasn’t sure it would work but oh boy I was proved wrong. . Also if anyone fancies getting themselves one of these gorgeous kimonos, they are all bespoke, handmade and @natalieruth_textiles are currently having a sale!! Shameless plug for my friends because they are both girl bosses running their own business 👊. . . . . . .

Lake Ohrid

👋🏼 curlies! Sorry for my silence the last couple of weeks, I jumped on a plane and disappeared to Macedonia for 10 days to explore, drink cocktails and relax in the sun - oh boy did I need it!! I had the most fabulous time with my Mum and Dad, and so did my hair. It adored the ☀️ (as did I). . I might have had more frizz, but I was not complaining because it meant VOLUME! My hair also felt thicker and although dry, weirdly healthier.. does anyone else find that in the sun?. . However, I am looking forward to a good deep condition this evening, not going to lie. I also have a few posts to share from my holiday and how I looked after the curls while away. . . . . . .

Wedding vibes 👰 rocking the curls this weekend at the most gorgeous wedding in Bury St Edmunds Cathedral and oh boy was it breathtaking 😍. My friend looked utterly beautiful and the location couldn’t have been more perfect, words can’t describe it. Now to get this dress in the wash as there are a fair few red wine splashes on it from dancing like a loon 🤪. . . . . .

REFRESH - what’s your go to process?. . For me, I tend to fully wet my hair in the shower, bar the roots so I keep as much volume as possible, and then I go for a super light gel... step in @onlycurlslondon gel. I find this one is a great refresh because it is not to heavy to put on top of other products, but still gives enough hold to bring back definition. . This was my refresh results at the weekend following spice girls and failing to sleep in my silk scarf (1am to bed and prosecco meant I forgot this vital piece of equipment). . . . . . .

Yesterday’s hair vibes (caught before the 3hrs of bottomless prosecco destroyed me 🤦‍♀️). . Not sure what that stray curl is up too 👀 anyone else have some unruly curls this weekend?. . Pre-poo @righteousrootsoils . Shampoo @sogooditsnoughty . Deep condition @garnieruk banana food. Condition @sogooditsnoughty . Creme @sogooditsnoughty . Mousse @pantene . Gel @onlycurlslondon . . . . . . .

From blonde, straight hair to curly, ginger locks... this is a different kind of . . Did anyone else have straight hair as a child? Mine was straight until I was about 4, and then my brother was born. Now this is not necessarily cause and effect, but it seems a coincidence the stress of a little brother making me no longer the youngest and my hair going curly 😉. . However in all seriousness isn’t it crazy how your hair can change with age? You wouldn’t even recognise it was me with that hair! So 🙋‍♀️ if you also had straight hair as a kid?. . . . . .

trying @curly_tanisha hair flick method! I applied my @onlycurlslondon creme and @pantene mousse with my head upside down, combing through and making sure I ‘squish to condish’. I then flicked my hair and gently moved the curl clumps into position before using praying hands to apply @onlycurlslondon gel... oh boy has it worked - the root volume is 🙌 has anyone else tried this yet? . . . . . . .

How many curl patterns are on your head?. . When I had my hair cut @curly_hair_london Stephanie was educating me all about curl patterns and how we all have multiple types on our head. She could tell as soon as I walked in how I’d had a bad cut previously because they had done a wet cut, and not understood the curl patterns. . The curls at the front of my hair are incredibly tight and curl from the root. They have always been so much shorter than the rest of my hair. I always thought that was because they just couldn’t grow, but it was because they were being cut like they behaved the same as my curls at the back 🤯. . These curls at the back come out of the root much straighter and then curl. I’m noticing now they’re shorter the are starting to get more curl and are loving being lighter. . And let’s not even talk about the curls underneath, the softest and bounciest on my head but hidden away, probably due to being protected so they don’t get the wear and tear of the elements!. . What curl patterns do you have?. . . . . .

Yesterday’s washday results coming at you 👀 so I mixed up my routine quite a bit and tried a whole new wash combo as well as a new stying creme. I’ve been wanting to try @sogooditsnoughty for ages so I’ve been so excited for washday since my parcel arrived last week. I also got my hands on the aloe @garnieruk hair food and it’s safe to say I am obsessed with this range for my deep condition - the smell and result they give me are incredible. . Verdict? Well I love the @sogooditsnoughty shampoo and conditioner. I need to shampoo as my hair is so fine I need to get rid of the build up and not only do they do the job, they smell great too. . Curl creme I was nervous to try. I’ve struggled with all except @onlycurlslondon in the past. This one leaves lots more product in my hair than I’m used to... you know when you can see the white of the product? So I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but the results speak for themselves. I definitely need to play around with the styling combo, but for a first attempt I’m impressed 👍. . Swipe to see the full wash line up ➡️. . . . . . . .

Saturday results are the 💣, so I thought I would show you a front and back view. My hair responds so well to a deep conditioning, because it is so dry, the extra moisture really helps and I can tell by how shiny and soft it it. I’ve had a few requests to do a styling and wash video so I’m going to get on that. In the meantime, full line up below: . Clarify = @cantubeautyuk shampoo. Deep conditioner = @garnieruk banana food. Co-wash = @mauimoisture conditioner. Creme = @onlycurlslondon leave in creme. Styling = @umbertogiannini gel. . My go to gels are @umbertogiannini and @cantubeautyuk but I would love to try more, what are your favourites?. . . . . . .
