So I have to take a minute right now to express just how happy I am that one of my favourite brands has finally launched in major UK high street retailer Boots!
I may be looking too much into this (or perhaps I’m just overly attached to my hair!), but I really do see this as a monumental occasion for curly/natural haired women and a dawning of realisation for the mainstream beauty world who has refused to cater to us for so long (despite L’Oreal finding that those with textured hair spend 6x more on our tresses than straight haired women…..)

Now….I really have been sitting on these products for too long!
However, I feel as though the time I’ve taken using these products will really help to give you all an accurate idea of how they worked for me and my loopy corkscrew curls.
Over the years, Motions has undergone a total branding overhaul and has really gotten to know us naturals and our specific needs in a post-relaxer world.
They know what we ultimately want in our curly regimes…..and they also seem to know our naughty rebellious curly girl tendencies! (I do not know a single natural who threw her GHD’s in the bin after transitioning……*sips tea*)
So I was very intrigued and happy to be trying out two of their products from their Natural Textures line. The Pre-wash Detangling Butter and Enhance & Define Versatile Texture Defining Cream….

To all my “all-natural” hair care lovers……this review is for you!
I’m not a big user of all-natural products…..however, I have noticed that as my hair gets longer (and the damaged ends are getting trimmed away into extinction), my hair seems to respond better to these kind of products rather than the usual silicone laden ones.
I was sent these products by Big Hair as a gift and I was so impressed with these beauties that I decided that I just HAD to share my honest opinion with my doves too 🙂
Now…..to break down why these products are as awesome as bananas smothered in peanut butter (hmmmmm), here are the ingredients…..

This leave in conditioner is like an ex boyfriend that I just keep going back to…..
It was the very first leave in conditioner that I ever tried when I embarked upon my natural hair journey over four years ago now…..and it’s one of the few products I that just find myself being drawn back to time and time again.
Contrary to the name……Mixed Chicks is actually aimed at women (and men) of all racial backgrounds with a variety of hair textures and curl types.
I mentioned in my previous article that this leave in conditioner seems to work well for me during both the spring and autumn/fall months due to the properties in the ingredients. Sometimes it is literally the only product that just ticks all the boxes (hence why it’s pretty much empty in the above picture)……

Soooo…..maybe I should start off with the few positives there are about this product……
It smells good! Fresh and coconutty.
It’s nice and thick, easily spreadable, will last a while. I found that this product worked best for me when it came to twist outs and braid outs (which I very rarely do), it would provide enough hold to help the styles last for days afterwards.

I’ve only used this bad boy a few times so far……but it’s fair to say, that when used appropriately, it is an absolutely AMAZING deep conditioner.
Now, this conditioner is DEFINITELY not for the “all-natural” lover! If you are someone who is highly ingredients conscious, then this product is most definitely NOT for you! Due to the heavy silicones in this product, I use it for one occasion only…..

This weeks review is of the Vatika Naturals Egg Protein with Honey Shampoo and Conditioner duo.
I’ve had these little beauties sitting in my bathroom for months now and I can’t believe I haven’t taken the time to review them!
All the way from the United Arab Emirates, this duo is a MUST HAVE for anyone with damaged/chemically treated hair (this includes bleach, hair dye, etc).

So……just like everyone else on January 1st…..I was determined to get rid of the months worth of mulled wine, roast dinner and Quality Street that clung to my thighs!
As many of you may know (who have followed me on YouTube) I’m avidly into my strength training, and I’m always looking for ways to cut body fat whilst preserving my hard earned muscle. I had seen lots of talk about intermittent fasting all over the bodybuilding and fitness websites and I naively thought that it would be the perfect way for me to kick start 2015.

Hello my Doves!
If you are subbed to me on YouTube, you’ll probably see that I have started the GoldCrush Hair vitamins trial. I have been supplied with two months worth of capsules and I’m looking forward to seeing if I have any noticeable results during that time period!
I started taking them on the 24th January (Saturday) and I am now two weeks into my trial. So far, I haven’t noticed any side effects of the vitamins at all. I did get a few more spots within the first week of use, however this coincided with my period, so I think its more likely that it was just hormonal spots as I get them every month lasting for a few days.

After four years of being natural, I think I’m finally starting to crack the riddle….
Why does my hair love a product one month and detest it the next? How can a product nourish my curls one day but break them the day after….
