Product Review: African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Leave-in conditioner & Olive Miracle Growth Oil

African Pride Products Image

I wrote about my natural hair transition journey the other day, and I mentioned how eager I was to review some cool natural hair products. Well, say hello to African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Leave-in conditioner & Olive Miracle Growth Oil…

I have used both products on my hair and daughter’s hair for a while now, and I have super impressed with them.

Here is what African Pride has to say about the Shea Butter Miracle Moisture Intense Leave-in conditioner –

This rich cream is both a conditioner and a styling aid. Naturals are able to replenish moisture to freshly cleansed tresses or use a dollop to restyle and add shine and fight frizz. Perfect for short-haired naturals, wash-n-go looks and use with Bouncy Curls Pudding.

I use this product as instructed – a leave-in-conditioner. I apply to damp hair, and add a bit of Olive Miracle Growth Oil as often as I can, I aim to do this every other day, when I have my plaits out, and so far I am winning.

This African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Leave-in conditioner is the best leave-in conditioner out there.

Maternity Fashion Tips for Mums to be

Pregnancy Image

 

Finding the right outfit during your pregnancy can be a challenge. Not only do you need to upgrade your wardrobe every trimester, but you can struggle to find clothes that suit and make you feel good. To give you a helping hand, we’ve put together some top tips for mums to be.
First Trimester
During your first trimester, it’s natural to want to keep your pregnancy under wraps. Many people prefer to keep the news a secret until the second trimester, so finding some clothes that allow you a little extra room to breathe is the best idea.
Put aside clothes that are tight, clingy or draw attention to your stomach, as this is the telltale area for those getting suspicious.  Instead, opt for silhouettes that flow over your tummy, hips and thighs, so that you can hide the few pounds you may gain within your first few months of pregnancy.
Dresses, knits, and skirts are great solutions, while the ‘blouson’ style top – which has a waistband at the bottom and some room to breathe above the band – can give you the confidence and flexibility to keep your baby news a secret.
As your bump continues to grow, you may find it difficult to fit into your existing clothes – opting for a size or two up could be an idea, but do you want to waste money on clothes that you’re not going to use as soon as you pop? Stretch your wardrobe with some useful and flexible additions is a great solution, with items such as stretchy bands, layering tanks and oversized cardigans and blazers all coming in useful during the difficult first few months of your pregnancy.
Second Trimester
During your second trimester, you can feel like you’re growing every week, but splashing out on a new wardrobe every time you have something to eat just isn’t going to cut it. Instead, investing in a few key items that will grow with you is the best solution. Things with tie-backs, buttons, and gathering can be adjusted throughout your pregnancy as your body changes, can offer you some serious comfort and save you money.
This period is also the beginning of your bustier figure, so investing in some great quality bras is a good idea. Although finding a bigger size might be the first thing that comes to mind, you should instead opt for bras that offer more comfort, support and room to grow – you can find many stylish nursing or maternity bras in some stores, so it pays to shop around.
As far versatile pregnancy outfits go, wrap dresses should become your wardrobe staple. Opt for solid colours or block patterns, and embrace your curves – it’s a chance for you to enjoy your changing body and let the world know that you’re a mother to be! Wrap dresses can be pulled off both at work and the weekend, and, as your bump grows, you can change where you tie the dress to increase your comfort and style.

Third Trimester
The last few months of your pregnancy can be a challenge – you’re likely to feel uncomfortable in whatever you wear, and buttoning and zipping up your clothing feels increasingly difficult. An empire-waisted maxi dress is an ideal solution, as it gives you room to breathe and can be used even after your baby has arrived.
If you’re attending a party or you’re just plain sick of blacks and greys, then adding some more oomph doesn’t have to be difficult. Matching your accessories to your body is something recommended by fashion experts across the globe, so add some big, bold earrings to your outfit or opt for a scarf with a quirky pattern to transform your outfit.
If you’re running low on funds, or you’re just sick of shopping in the maternity department, then purchasing some new shoes is a great way to give your outfits a much-needed boost. Whether you opt for a ballerina pump or go for a kitten heel, you’ll be able to find a pair that offers you comfort and style – and the best part is, you’ll still be able to wear them when you return to your pre-baby figure.

Regardless of how you want to deal with your pregnancy, following some of our fashion tips should help to take away some of the pressure of your maternity wardrobe. And, using a Mothercare discount code from MyVoucherCodes means you won’t need to break the bank.
