I am slowly getting my way back to blogging and vlogging after my break for my maternity leave. Part of being a blogger is attending new product launches and letting you guys know about new products that are in the South African market. I was invited to the launch for the Tresemme Botanique range in Johannesburg on the 19th of May. I enjoyed myself at the event and it was a beautiful setup. It’s always great to be at these events at meet some of the bloggers that I follow and interact with on social media.
One of the worries that I had during my pregnancy was how it was going to affect my hair. I know, I know, it seems so trivial that whilst going through one of the most life changing experiences of my life, I was worried about my hair. Since starting my healthy hair journey, I had read about how pregnancy hormones affect hair growth and the devastating effects of postpartum shedding. That is why I was dreading this change from the beginning. I am currently about 8 weeks post partum, I don’t think that I have gone through the worst bits of postpartum shedding. However, in this post I want to share how my hair was during my pregnancy and how it is currently.
I finally became a mom on the 8th of March to a beautiful baby girl. As I write this, she is lying here next to me fighting the urge to fall asleep, lol! That’s one thing I am failing to understand about newborns – why fight the urge to sleep when you are sleepy??? sigh! Motherhood has been a massive learning curve, I only now (5 weeks later) feel like I am getting some sort of hang to it. However, just as I feel like I have figured her out, she switches it up on me and does the complete opposite and leaves me more confused than ever!
Hey boos, I mentioned in this post that I will be taking some time off blogging to take out to get acclimated to being a first time mom. I am currently heavily pregnant and ready to give birth any day now (who knows, I might have given birth by the time this post comes out 😀) and thus, my blogging break has started. I want to enjoy this time and take some time out to rest rather than thinking about writing posts. I won’t be gone forever though, I will be back soon! You can still interact with me on social media, my handle is @bylungi on all platforms.
Love, Lungi ❤️
My hair routine is finally getting to where I want it to be: predictable. I know that sometimes in the world of natural hair and natural hair blogging, predictable can be seen as boring, but I am so happy to be here. The one place where I can be creative are my hairstyles and as my hair is growing longer and my flat twisting skills improving – I am getting much, much better with hairstyles. Let’s see what my hair has been getting up to in February.
The last time I did this low end vs high end feature it was on mascaras, this time I am coming back with setting sprays. Setting sprays are a must in all makeup stashes. The main use is to ensure that it doesn’t move around throughout the day and also depending on the type of setting sprat, they can give you a dewy finish or mattify your makeup. When I started using makeup, I did not use setting sprays because the ones that I saw were all high end and I couldn’t afford them at the time. As luck would have it, there are more affordable setting sprays available on the market, in this post I will compare the high end and low end setting sprays that I own.
