Lazy girl twist outs on 4b natural hair

Hey lovelies!

Twist outs have never been my strongest area when it comes to natural hair care, mainly because i’m a bit impatient and i guess you can say a tad bit lazy haha.

I’m a believer in the least amount of manipulation for your hair, pulling and tugging sometimes cause damages, it may not be extensive at first but it can lead to that. This is why twist outs can be quite helpful, as it is also a protective style, which doesn’t require much, a few will do just fine.

I’ve been asked numerous times about how i keep my hair looking so healthy and full of life. I honestly don’t do an awful lot. I basically keep it moisturised, i also do a lot of styles that will ensure it stays protected, i try to eat healthily and stay in shape, these factors do help believe it or not!

So basically this is quite a quick and easy process. The products i’ve used are:

1.Water

2.Eco styling gel

3.Hair moisturiser

4.Oil

I made sure to detangle my hair, with a wide tooth comb after i’ve saturated it with water, not drenched otherwise it’ll take a longer time to dry.

I then use my moisturiser to soften it up, add a bit of coconut oil to seal in the moisture. Then use a pea size amount of gel to ensure that the twist stay in tact, this will make them last longer too.

I apply all of the products mentioned to each twist. I let it stay over night, then take them down the following day.

I think the trick is not to mess about with the hair too much, otherwise all the curls will be lost and that’s how we arrive at unsuccessful twist outs haha.

That’s how i get a bit of definition in my hair. Sometimes i do two to three twists using the same products and i get similar results. Hope this helped.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love

Lush face and body mask

Hey guys,

I’ve found that lately i’ve been into trying different scrubs and mask. It’s a plus when they are made from natural ingredients and aren’t tested on animals. Now i know a lot of you are familiar with the brand Lush, as they are definitely cruelty free and all their ingredients are very much natural.

I popped into their shop and as usual that lovely aroma hits as soon as i stepped through the door, it’s almost impossible to leave without picking up a few bits! As i browsed around, i spotted their face and body mask, there was a wide variety but i had to grab the one made from coffee. I must add before i get any further that i love coffee, one or two cups a day is just right for me, any more than that and i’d be quite jittery, i digress! I quickly put the mask in my basket along with a few bath bombs and made my way out of the store before i ended up with a hefty bill haha.

Of course i tried it as soon as i got home, it has an awesome smell of coffee not in the slightest way overbearing, if you’re a coffee lover, then you’ll find this pleasant. I can assure you that this is one of the best ways to pamper yourself in the privacy of your own home without having to pay an arm and a leg.

Now this mask has a thick consistency, with coarse coffee grounds that will ensure that your skin is properly exfoliated.

To apply it, i wet my hands a little, took out a generous amount a few times and distributed it all over my body, from my face to my feet. I had to keep wetting my hands as it gets a bit dry and it needed water to help it go onto the skin better. I was quite gentle as it is coarse. After smoothing it all over my body, i then left it on for 10 mins, they recommended  you let it sink in for 10-15 mins. Washed it off, which i have to say was a very messy job, as the coffee grounds got everywhere!

Let me just tell you how smooth and baby soft my skin felt, oh my goodness. This mask is amazing, even the day after my skin still felt soft, supple and rejuvenated. I really do like it and i’m planning to try a few more of their mask.
