    Current Curly Girl Routine

    As I mentioned a few months ago, I’m currently using the curly girl method to try and improve the health of my hair. It’s actually my second try as I did give it a go a while back but gave up when I was pregnant as my hair wasn’t doing well at all.

    Coco & Eve Like A Virgin – Miracle Hair Mask?

    A few months ago I started getting a million adverts on Instagram for the Coco & Eve Like A Virgin hair mask. The before and after pictures looked incredible and I was in the midst of a dry hair crisis caused by my crazy pregnancy hormones (in addition to the dry skin situation). I’d been using the “curly girl” method for almost a year before getting pregnant which involves cutting out silicones and only using completely natural products.
