  1. I have that Coconut oil from holland and barrett it smells gorgeous doesn't it?


    1. It does it does it does, love it!

  2. I just love how your hair looks right now! I am guessing its a weave? If you could do a post on it, I would be grateful. Your hair is always neat, never a hair out of place. Your skills are awesome. With regards to this post, how often do you use this mixture? Is it more an additive to your DC?

    1. Thank you! Yes it is a clipped in weave and I will definitely do a video in the next week or two. I use the mix once a month and mix it with my favourite deep conditioner so that I double the goodness!

  3. This is amazing, i will try it but must the henna cubes be frozen at all times or will it melt at room temperature.

    1. Yumzi thank you ^_^ yes they need to be kept frozen or they melt away!!!

  4. I'm thankful for finding your blog post about the diary of mistress. I've bookmarked this site and will return again soon.
