Hiding my natural hair – My battle with hair loss/excessive shedding

No doubt one of the most difficult things I’ve had to share during my blogging journey, but it had to be done.

I recently experienced my first major setback since starting my healthy hair journey seven years ago. I promised myself that once I had figured out what had caused me to lose handfuls of hair during wash day, I would share a video on my channel to help those who may be going through something similar.

Drink your way to longer hair with these 3 highly nutritious smoothies

Two years ago I hosted my very first protective style challenge. I wanted to speed up my hair growth in time for my wedding, and decided to follow through on four things that I believed would help me achieve longer hair.

One of the things I did was drink a smoothie a day. I was well aware of the impact of nutrition on the health of my hair, and decided that taking smoothies was one of the easiest ways for me to get a tonne of vitamins, nutrients and minerals, in just one drink. The results? Take a look for yourself

Two years later smoothies remain an important part of my daily routine, and I do my very best to ensure I take one a day. I’ve gone back and forth with different smoothie recipes but three in particular are always on repeat.

If one of your goals for the year is to see your hair grow in health and length, smoothies can make all of the difference. The three I’m sharing today are oozing with nutritious goodness and taste so freaking good!

New In | Vals day surprise, skin treats & a wig wearer must have

How is it almost March already? I feel like February came and went in just a couple of days!

You may remember at the end of January I shared on my decision to spend more money on clothes, with the hopes of saving more money in the long run. This was a decision that came about after my epic wardrobe malfunction in December (I still can’t believe I allowed that to happen!)

Best of 2016: My 2016 roundup in beauty, hair care & more!

So it’s the first week of the year and in usual Fiona style I’ve just finished my bi-annual product spring clean. If you were with me during my loveyourtresses days, you’ll know that I’m quite the product lover! I live for finding products that make my skin, hair, and any other body part, look and feel 100!

Whilst I rummaged through my beauty cabinet this morning, I noticed that I had very few products to throw away, and that’s because 2016 was my year of holy grails, I fell in love with 80 – 90% of the products I purchased and figured I would share them all with you.

Here are some of my 2016 favourites (beauty, hair care and more):  View Post
