Travel-Sized Beauty Favourites for Your Next Holiday
Times are tough right now. As well as the ongoing societal problem of systematic and systemic racism against black people across the world, the Coronavirus pandemic continues. With many of us still abiding by lockdown restrictions, travelling has been severely disrupted.  You may have had a holiday planned that’s been cancelled or postponed. You might have planned to take a quick trip away to escape the hustle and bustle of life. You probably planned a staycation to get away from your hometown for a short while. Regardless of your travel plans, it’s annoying to have to put things on hold.

Face SPF Products You Need to Try Right Now
It’s hot. There I said it. It really crept up on us. We were given rain and storms before a heatwave no one saw coming. I’m the first to burn too. I’ll step outside and within 10 minutes, I’m a rosy hue. This list is as much for me as it is you and I’m excited about it, let me tell you.

Summer Lovin’
You've binge-watched Normal People, developed a mild case of repetitive strain injury from swiping left on boys who are 'just looking for a quarantine buddy ;)' and Love Island 2020 (much like my own love life) is cancelled.   If you're a hopeless romantic like myself and need your fix of summer lovin' in the absence of skin-tight white jeans peacocking around a firepit (I mock, but I've never missed an episode), then pick up a love story.

The Benefits of Meditation On Your Mental Health
Life is still a little on the crazy side right now… I mean, if you’d have asked me back in January what I thought I’d achieve this year, you can bet your bottom dollar I wouldn’t have said building a loungewear collection and not leaving my house for months, other than to go food shopping and walk the dog. No socialising… no holidays… not going into work…  Life has literally been flipped upside down for a lot of people and now more than ever, it’s important to look after our mental health and wellbeing. Spending most of your time alone, or with the same few people in your household can also be hard, especially if you’re a natural social butterfly.

8 Hair Myths Busted

You’ve probably heard several hair tips, tricks and advice pieces from many people, but did you know that a lot of common beliefs around hair are not actually true? When it comes to taking care of your hair, it’s important to have the right information, so that you can establish a hair care regimen that’s effective and suitable for you and your hair type.   

Where do you start you ask? Here are our top 8 Hair Myths BUSTED, so you can start ace-ing your hair game.  

  1. Trimming your hair will stop it from growing.

Absolutely not. In fact, you should regularly trim your hair to get rid of split ends and single strand knots, which ultimately helps to maintain the condition of the hair. 

 

  1. You need to wash your haireveryday.

This is so unnecessary. Overwashing your hair strips it of its essential oils, completely drying it out. However, you should definitely wash it regularly to keep it clean. Make sure you use a deep conditioner or a hair mask as part of your hair washing routine and ensure all product is washed out. 

 

  1. It doesn’t matter what shampoo you use.

Yes, yes it does. The whole purpose of shampoo is to cleanse your hair of dirt and impurities, whilst keeping it fresh and revitalized. However, you should be using the right shampoo for your hair needs. There are so many shampoos out there that target different hair types.  

 

  1. Conditioner weighs down fine hair.

Now this one is half true – some conditioners do weigh down your hair and some don’t. When applying conditioner, apply throughout the hair and down to the tips, avoiding applying product around the scalp area. Don’t over focus on your roots when your ends need as much love as they can get.  

 

  1. Frizzy hair can be tamed by wetting the hair.

This isn’t true and those of you with natural frizz will know. Wetting the hair can make the hair so much harder to control, tapping into your natural frizz. To combat frizz, use an anti-frizz product such as a spray, serum or leave-in conditioner to help control your hair. 

 

  1. Hair doesn’t grow in the summer.

Heat is known to encourage and promote hair growth, whilst hair is thought to grow 10-15% more in the summer season. Get ready for that summer glow up! 

 

  1. Women can’t experience hair loss.

Untrue. Some women can experience hair loss as a result of several factors, which can include hormonal changes, extreme dieting, stress, genetics and medical conditions.  

 

  1. You can skip using a conditioner, especially if you have fine hair.

Nope. A conditioner is an essential part of a haircare regimen. No matter what your hair type or texture, conditioner can help to detangle hair and provide nourishment.
