Updated Hair Routine 

Hey guys !!! 

I know it’s been a while since I’ve done a hair related post, I’m constantly asked about my hair no matter where I am. I’ve changed my routine slightly ( to make it easier ) . I’ll link my previous hair post in this post. This will be short and sweet, so let’s get to it…


• Daily moisturiser 

Aunt Jackie’s: curl la la & curl mane-tenance | Shea Moisture: extra-moisture detangler 
I’ve written about these products before, they lock in the moisture and make your hair look healthy. They are all available at Clicks

Once a week moisturiser 

MGL naturals: Coconut Oil & Shea Butter 
Well this isn’t available in this region of Africa, I have an aunt who brings it for me from Ghana. However, you get the same thing by mixing a good quality coconut oil with Shea butter :). This makes your hair have long lasting moisture ( natural hair key 🔑 ) I usually use this once a week after I’ve done my wash and deep conditioning. 

 Shampoo and Conditioner 

Aunt Jackie’s: oh so clean! | Mixed Chicks: deep conditioner 

I wash my hair twice a week ( it’s dusty outchea ) this shampoo is AMAZING it smells good and leaves your hair squeaky clean ( literally ) it is available at Clicks. I usually Cowash my hair and deep condition it once a week. This deep conditioner has a waxy feel to it and leaves your hair feeling super light and soft. Unfortunately Mixed Chicks isn’t sold in this part of the world but you can order it from https://mixedchicks.net 

Combing and bed hair 

I still comb my hair but now I brush it as well, especially before I tie it up for the night. Brushing it has made it softer and sometimes my curls like bomb 😻. I really want a Denman brush though, you do this test on your hair type, etc and it suggests the perfect brush for you and the results you want ( here’s the link to the quiz https://www.denmanbrush.com/genie ) 

I used to braid my hair every night before I went to bed but that was tiring and took so long. Now I simply section my hair ( into 4 parts ) and comb & brush through each section before tying it up into 4 buns. Not only is this easier and less time consuming, it has the exact same effect as braiding.

February Favourites🌹: hair edition 

Hey guys… I know that I’ve been kind of M.I.A for the past 2+ weeks, this has been due to the weather lately: it has been rainy and I wanted to share my hair straightening technique with you but you know moisture/humidity & natural hair (straightened don’t mix). I still would like to share that with you but until the weather gets its act together I’ve decided to share my ultimate favourite hair products with you… Let’s get to it!!

  1. Aunt Jackie’s – curl mane-tenance 
    This is my ultimate favourite hair product… I use it everyday for everything from daily moisturizing to when I do a twist-out or a braid-out. This product: apart from smelling amazing, keeps your hair moisturized and can be used to enhance your curls. It’s an 11 out of 10 for me 😀
       Available at Clicks                                     
  2. Mixed Chicks : shampoo 
    I love this product because: 1. It is made for my hair. 2. It smells amazing. 3. It does its job and leaves my hair feeling soft and clean. What more do you want from a shampoo.
  3. L’Oréal Elvive: conditioner
    Ok I’m constantly switching up my conditioner but this has always been my favourite. I use it twice a week and sometimes for my deep conditioning. It lasts long and smells amazing and leaves my hair feeling amazing.
        Available at any supermarket or pharmacy 
  4. Mixed Chicks: deep conditioner
    This product locks in the moisture, makes my curls & hair feel and look amazing and smells great. What more should a deep conditioner do.
                       Bought-online: www.mixedchicks.net

    These are my ultimate favourite hair products at the moment, I hope that I’ve inspired some of your to go out and try them for yourselves. 

    Summer essentials 

    Summer has finally returned to the Southern Hemisphere(🎉) and although it is as hot as hell I couldn’t be happier. It is super dry and hot where I’m from, so today I am going to share my go to product that make this season a little more bearable. Today’s post consists of hair and skin products that lock in moisture and keep you feeling and looking fresh, along with other products that make summer better… Let’s get to it. 

    1. HAIR 

    My hair gets very greasy in summer so I don’t use any products that add too much to this as I constantly have to wash it. 

    Here are a few products perfect for this season: 

    1. The leave-in conditioner by Mixed Chicks

    This product keeps your hair moisturized while making your curls stand out and is light so you are not adding any extra weight to your hair. 

    2.Coconut soufflé by Mizani

    This product is similar to the leave-in conditioner. It is light, smells great and keeps your hair moisturized and soft. 

    3. Hair silk by Mixed Chicks

    I only use this product after I have washed my hair as it promotes shine. However, it can make your hair greasy so I do recommend using it on washed/wet hair for the best result. 

    All of the products above can be purchased from retailers in South Africa or online
    2. FACE & BODY 

    1.PREP & PRIME by Mac

    This product is perfect for setting your make up and preventing that summer glow ( sweat ). It comes for your different skin types too. 

    2. Intensive care by Vaseline

    This product is light and keeps your skin moisturized and glowing.

    3. Coconut oil by Lemcke

    I know that is says cooking oil on it but it is the perfect sunblock 😅 trust me coconut oil is great for everything. 

    4. Miracle skin perfector BB cream by Garnier

    This product is light and a miracle. It evens out your skin tone making your skin look perfect. 

    5. Light blue by Dolce & Gabbana

    This perfume makes me think of the beach and is light, just what summer should be like. 

    6. Endless love by Victoria’s Secret

    This product is more floral than the first perfume but still remisnds me of summer. 

    7. Revlon colorburst

    This is the perfect gloss nude for summer. 

    Those are my favourite products for summer, hopefully you guys will try them out. I would also love it if you commented some of your favourite products for me to test out and share them with me on my social media (tagged in the side bar.
