A common theme amongst women who are into this haircare thing is how much we don’t trust hairdressers with our hair. When I started learning about taking care of my hair back in 2012, the first thing that shocked me was how much most hairdressers were not knowledgeable about healthy haircare practices. I need to mention here that #notallhairdressers. This led me to keep away from salons for most of the time, and to learn how to do my own hair, so much so that the last time I went to a salon was 2 years ago :o. However when I heard about the launch of a new mobile hair salon in Durban, co-owned by a naturalista, I jumped at the chance to try out their services and treat myself to someone else (that knows that their doing) touching my hair.
I haven’t written much about my hair on the blog recently, this is because I haven’t been doing much to my hair to really chat about here. If you didn’t know, I have been experiencing postpartum shedding for the past 4 months – basically my hair is a mess. In order to go through this phase as seamlessly as possible, I have chosen to keep my hair hidden under protective styles. My current protective styles of choice have been wigs and crochet braids, both are very simple to maintain and give me access to my hair. Read on to know a bit more about how my hair is doing.
I washed my hair this past weekend and I used some new products that I have in my stash and I thought to do a first impressions on the deep conditioner that I used. This conditioner is a recent purchase; I bought it at the Fro Fiesta event that I attended a month ago. Read on to find out what I thought of this product.
I am attending a hair event in Durban this coming weekend – I am keen to see what they have in store for us as this is the first hair event I will be attending. When I found out that there is going to be a hair products swap booth at the event I was so happy because I really need to get rid of some hair products. One of my goals for last year was to find my staple hair products and stick to using them, I was really over being a product junkie. To this end, I have a few products in my stash that I have either bought or were sent to me that weren’t really working for me and these are the ones that I am giving away.
I first came across the Tresemme Botanique range last year while I was doing research for this blog post that I wrote about the discontinuation of Tresemme Naturals and the reasons behind it. Upon seeing the Botanique range, I immediately thought that it was a replacement for the Naturals range even though it wasn’t explicitly mentioned as such. At the media launch, I asked the Tresemme team if indeed this range could replace the Naturals range in ones product stash and they replied that the Botanique range is as good as the Naturals range if not better.
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.
