43 Months

Hi all here are  a selection of styles worn over the last few months. This is the back of my hair showing flat twists to the crown followed by large single braids tucked under and secured with a see through elastic band.

This is a good choice for working out in the gym and I can rinse and or wash my hair in this style and let my hair air dry.

 Side view.
I made a fringe using medium sized perm rods left in over night.

 Side view with the back braids taken out to leave my usual curly look.
I decided to experiment with a wrap or roll. This one is more to the left side of my head.

Centre wrap look.  I wore this to work and it created quite a stir.

I am still enjoying having locks and the fact that each one is different, reflecting my individuality.

Hope you enjoyed these, let me know you are there and comment.

Product Review

I decided to try out a new shampoo, conditioner and hair mask (sorry no picture of this) by A'Kin and have been using them for about 2 months now.

I shampoo, condition and use the hair mask every fortnight and or just rinse and condition.

The products are sulphate and paraben free and contain pure active botanics.

They can be purchased from which offers 24 hour free dispatch in the UK and free gifts depending on the amount you order.

They cost £10.49 each for 225ml.

The shampoo contains Ylang Ylang and is for coloured hair.  It does not make lots of lather but my hair feels clean afterwards and not stripped.

The conditioner contains avocado and calendula and is for dry and long hair.  It smells gorgeous and there is a tingly feeling on my scalp when I use it. I can smell it for days after using this.

Finally the hair mask  contains ginkgo and jojoba and is described as a vitamin masque for hair that needs extra care. I usually use this last and leave it on for about 30 minutes without heat and use a shower cap.

My hair seems to really like this as when I use it I can feel my hair lapping it up and expanding and it is left fluffy, soft and hydrated.

Until next time Kittylocks x
