This Collagenius EMS Facial Toner With LED Light Therapy by Stress no more (a health and wellbeing brand) is now my current favourite beauty gadget. It is a handheld LED light therapy facial device for home use. It is great for getting rid of fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. This portable and lightweight facial device can also be used to tone and tighten the skin which improves the skin’s appearance. It is pain-free, quick and safe to use which is a massive plus. I will be using this facial toner for many years to come.

My face feels very hydrated and smooth thanks to this lovey face moisturiser by Stress no more. It is great for combating the signs of ageing – so fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps reduce redness. If you are after a new facial moisturiser, you should try this Organic Where Possible (OWP) Rose & Honey Face Moisturiser.

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for sometime, you would know all about my love for SheaMoisture products. I use many of the hair products by the brand and I love every one of them. I was recently introduced to this SheaMoisture Jojoba Oil & Ucuuba Butter Track Tension Relief Serum, and I am seriously loving this haircare product. It is just what I need to get instant relief from the discomfort that comes with having protective styles on. It is a great hair serum that calms and soothes your hair from the strains of having cornrows, braids, sewn-in-weaves and extensions. This hair serum is sulphate free and colour safe.

 

SheaMoisture Jojoba Oil & Ucuuba Butter Braid-Up Conditioning Gel £12.99

This Jojoba Oil & Ucuuba Butter Braid-Up Conditioning Gel by SheaMoisture is a great conditioning gel for braids, plaits, and other protective styles. This conditioning gel smells amazing and softens the hair, which improves workability. I currently have my hair in twists and this lovely conditioning gel made the whole process super easy. I love the product a lot.

 

SheaMoisture Jojoba Oil & Ucuuba Butter Laydown Lacquer £9.99

This Jojoba Oil & Ucuuba Butter Laydown Lacquer by SheaMoisture is so useful for making braids, plaits and other protective styles look sleek and neat for longer. Like other SheaMoisture products, a little goes a long way in controlling unruly strands to keep braided styles looking neat for longer. I love how it works on my braids. It is a product worth trying if you have your hair in protective styles a lot.

You can shop for these SheaMoisture hair products on the ASOS and LookFantastic websites.

My Natural Hair Update

I have been rocking my natural hair for some years now and I am loving it. It took some time to fully transition from my chemical damaged hair to my natural hair now. I didn’t go down the big chop route  and that is partly why it took forever to transition. But I am happy with how my hair is currently looking. There was some hair breakage earlier in the year, thanks to a crotchet braids hairstyle I had on that wasn’t right for my hair. But it is slowly growing back to how it was prior to that and I am hoping to see a significant hair growth before the end of the year. I have so many hairstyles I need to try. I just need my hair to grow some more.

My greatest hair muse is my beautiful daughter. Her hair is hair goals for me. She was born with amazing hair and I have found it very easy to nurture and maintain for her. Her hair reminds me of how my hair was when I was her age. It was natural, soft, long and chemical free. Her hair is one of the reasons why I decided to be free from all hair chemicals and damaging hair weaves. I have never seen any hair so beautiful. This photo does not do her hair justice.

If I could go back in time, I would take better care of my hair. But since I can’t, I have to ensure I right my hair wrongs. So far, it has been a journey I would never forget. It just confirms the saying that whatever you nurture grows and stays healthy.

My hair routine is very simple. I don’t do much with it or to it. I usually have my hair in cornrows and I wear wigs. Sometimes I have my hair braided in big weaves or crotchet braids, which I have now stopped doing because crotchet braids damaged my hair. I think the big fat needles used put too much pressure on the hair. So although it is a quick way to have your hair done, it is not the best for my hair type. For now, I am sticking to simple corn rows style. They suit me and mine. And that is what I have on at the moment.
