BEAUTY DIY: Crochet Washcloth & Face Scrubbies

Hello Beauties! A few weeks ago I decided to stop wearing makeup on an everyday basis. Make-up for me was my attempt to hide my skin from the world.

Today has been an amazing day celebrating my 2nd wedding anniversary with my hubby, Hleku. We spent the day at a lovely hotel by the Vaal River and later spent some time by the Vaal Dam. It’s been an awesome two years in marriage with tonnes of lessons (to be shared on another day), God has really been great to us and I honestly would choose him all over again if given the chance. Before I get too mushy let me get back to my original purpose of this post… Since December is wedding season in these parts of the world and today was my anniversary I decided to share a few hairstyles that natural bride with TWA’s (or longer hair) could use for their big day.

My hubby took all the pics, thanks babe!

Let me know which is your favourite 🙂

Steaming is the best thing I could have done for my hair!

This is a great in-depth review on hair steaming with a lot of great information. If you’re thinking about getting a steamer for your hair, take a read.

Anyone who knows me, knows I am an avid DIYer and advocate of learning your own hair and how to maintain it. With that, having the right equipment will make the process easier and more effective. My mission was my deep condition treatments.

In an attempt to amp up my deep conditioning, I went online to find a solution. Even though the plastic bag on my head generated heat, it just wasn’t enough for me. I wanted a hooded dryer that gets to a decent temperature to speed the process . After reading TONS of reviews and blogs, I came across a review for a steamer. And THAT is when I realized I was searching for the wrong thing!

Fast forward 6 months later and I found an excellent replacement for my plastic bag 😄 Hot Heads by Thermal Hair Care is what I use when I am relaxing, need to multitask…
