Absent without leave!

Hi everyone!
It truly has been too long! Truth be told i have missed blogging and the natural hair community. I wish i could say that i have been trying new products, attending meet-ups etc etc. But i haven't lol. Instead i have had my hair tied back in a bun or in protective styles for the last errrr 9 months! This is because i have recently become a ....... yummy , natural MUMMY! so what the awful morning sickness, the changes to my skin, feet and boobs(!) i was a little shall we say distracted! Lol. Not to mention the changes to my HAIR! wow! Now don't get me wrong- it has grown SO much, however it took on a life of its own! My staple items did NOTHING to tame the curls! Hence the bun & single plaits.

However- I'm BACK. (whoop, whoop) my beautifully , amazing and gorgeous daughter and I are gonna be getting to know each other and whilst I'm on maternity leave I thought- let's get blogging again.
Hopefully I am forgiven!! Much love Cimone-Spelt With a C xox

My hair today

So today I'm going to get my hair put in a protective style (Single extensions).
Last night I washed my hair with the TRESemme Natural products I bought last week. (Click HERE to read post-Plus review coming soon!).

I blow-dried my hair for the 1st time this year. (I only blow-dry my hair before I put extensions in). Now I don't ever blow-dry my hair straight so it is still a little 'poofy'. I just do it as quick as possible as this means less heat, which in turns=no heat damage. I then twisted in 8 big twists, headscarf, then bed.

This morning it was too hot to put a headscarf on to head to the hairdressers so I had to do something to make it look a little more presentable!
This is what I came up with:-
**Large forehead alert!!** :-)

Real quick style-took 5 mins! What do you think? How are you wearing your hair today?
Will post pics of my extensions later today... PLUS information regarding the box braid inspired giveaway!!!!
 Enjoy the sun, guys!

Natural Hair Meet Up Alert- Sat 7th May 2011

Hi guys,
Great news! Recently found out that there will be a natural Hair Meetup next month.

Too good to be TRESemme!

So went out and about today. Met Mr Man for lunch (nice Thai place in Ealing, West london). Then I did a spot of shopping.
As I walked past Superdrug, I noticed a promotion in the window:

Product Review: Komaza Care Coconut Curl Kit 2oz

So a few months ago now, I ordered an abundance of products from Included in my major hauls was the Trial size Komaza Care Coconut Curl Kit.
Nice 'Natural' packaging, huh?


So... weather was a little crappy yesterday and I had a killer headache so didn't go out at all.
However, woke up bright and early this morning and picked up a few items.
