Shots of Life

So I posted about going to see Ella Eyre.
I did. Amazing!
Her energy on stage is so good. I really hope that the world gets to experience her as I did.
So here are pics from that night.

Deep Conditioning - It's a Wrap!

Ah, deep conditioning.
Is it weird that I love this part of wash day?
It's the aftermath of the storm that is detangling. 
It's the time where I can slap on a concoction and leave my hair to soak in all it's goodness.
I love a good homemade DC.
Check out some of my faves here & here.
I don't use heat when I deep condition because I don't have a hooded dryer 
if I did, I don't have the patience to sit underneath one for that purpose.
Ain't that deep for me. (see what I did there?)
So I prefer to use my own body heat and slap on plastic bags
(because my hair can't fit under plastic shower caps + it's more economical to recycle the bags)
then a warm hat.

OR


a turban.
I feel one should deep condition and feel  look fabulous at the same time.
The plastic bag situation by itself is not a good look and even though I may not leave my house,
you never know who might decide to Skype or FaceTime.

Do you wrap your hair when you DC or leave it be?

Boots Curl Creme - Wash n Go

Greetings.


Wash N Go.
nothing new to the blog. this style will have me stocking up on various products to see if any outdo the other.
This post is about one of those products. 
I came across Boots Curl Creme somehow one night while I was traipsing through the internet. I was intrigued. It's cheap and readily available to ladies in the UK. Even lil ole me in random ol' Crewe.
If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen me post about it already but I like it so much, it gets a blog post.

no parabens. no cones. under £2


I've used it two or three times now and it's been good to me all those times. I used it ALONE on damp hair. I would not recommend wet hair as it does this weird thing, 
i.e. nothing good.
I sealed with almond oil because one must seal in moisture.


no idea why my eyes have those black spots. i blame blogspot
hair damp with the curl creme in

I get a good 4-5 days when using this for a wash n go.
Soft, moisturized, fluffy, defined (ish)
Things I love when rocking a WnG.

To all my UK lovelies, try it out!
Won't set you back much if you end up hating it but I don't know why you would.

Musings of Miché

It's Friday.
The first friday that is completely free for me. Haven't felt this in awhile.
I'm officially on Easter Break but I have work and more importantly, uni work to complete.
I'm on the last stretch and it's the part where nothing but the grace and goodness of God is getting me through.


I've decided to take this weekend to completely de-stress, relax and unwind.
I had a bit of that last weekend when I was suppose to be working but caught a bit of a cold and was stuck in bed.
It was like God said chill.
I was ok enough by the following Monday for work.


But this, I'm not sick! 
So I'm going to read - Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende
catch up on shows - Grey's, Scandal & Homeland
eat - healthy ish but mostly the junk I was sent from the States.
communicate with those who I haven't in awhile.
oh and of course - wash my hair. 
Gonna try out a new product which I'll post about it when I use it :)

Anyhoo, my feel good song and jam for some months now
feels right for my chill time.

Afraid by Amel Larrieux.
Why not leave y'all with a lil something for your ears on this fine Friday?

Enjoy =)

Root 2 Tip Review - Scalp Hydration Serum

                      £8.99 on Paks Website 


Hello Lovelies!
Here's my review of Root 2 Tip Scalp Hydration Serum.
It promotes hair growth and aids in relieving dandruff and eczema.

I was curious yet not that elated when I saw this product in my package. Reason being, I'm not one for oiling my scalp. Yes I have eczema and it greatly affects my scalp but I've found no significant help in doing it. Sometimes it tends to irritate it even more. So onto this serum,

The ingredients are lovely. 
It contains
-coconut oil
-castor oil
-sulfur
- rosemary
They seem like the perfect combination of scalp goodies if that makes sense to you. First time I used it, I used it after styling my freshly washed & styled hair. In the week, my scalp was itching me. I don't normally have that issue until 7 days in so I was concerned. After that I didn't use it on. Y whole scalp. It could be due to the coconut oil. As much as I love coconut oil for my hair, I've noticed that it irritates my scalp at moments. This was no different. I have used it a couple of hours before washing my hair as part of a prepoo and I like it best that way. It helps to loosen any flakes and feels as if it's stimulating my hair follicles. Could just be me.

Overall
I wouldn't purchase it due to the coconut oil bugging my scalp and because I'm not a scalp oiler (is that a word?) I know numerous people who have success with coconut oil on their scalps so those out there I would still recommend it. If coconut oil is not your scalp's friend, don't. This serum is also great for sealing in the winter due to the castor oil.
