An Afternoon With My Miracle Worker

For as long as I remember my hair has been the bane of my life. Ever since I was born I was unfortunately blessed with thick, knotty, curly, frizzy hair. Growing up I was bullied in primary and secondary school because of this, it was basically a bush on my skull. It was horrendous. As i've grown older I have done whatever I can to get rid of this bush and try to attempt to calm it down as such. I've been to numerous hairdressers, all of which have made a point of telling me what a nuisance my hair is to them and acted like I was a problem which added to my upset with my hair. A few years ago I remembered about a friend of my family's who was a hairdresser and was also in the year above me in primary school. So I got in touch and here we are.

Christina has been an absolute miracle worker (hence the title). Instead of treating me like a problem, Christina treats me like a challenge and loves to throw ideas at me of what we can do with my mop. We started off with a Brazillian blowdry which didn't work, so we moved onto a Keratain treatment, this also didn't work so we are now attempting a Nano-Keratain treatment. So far it works wonders. I have the treatment done and then for the following three days I'm not allowed to get my hair wet or put it in a bobble so this allows the treatment to settle and work itself into the hair. What a difference it makes. For someone who has absolutely hated their hair ever since I was born and to get to this is such a miracle. I know i keep using that word but nothing else describes it. After having the treatment done I honestly feel like a new woman. The joy of having it done is unreal. I can actually straighten my hair then without any problems or do many different hairstyles. As women we all know what its like when you've had your hair done, we feel a million dollars, but for me times that by 20.

Lately I have been feeling quite down when it comes to my hair. I was in definite need of my treatment but also sick and tired of the same look. All I ever do is have it straight or in a bun and thats it. I never attempt any other hairstyle because i'm so afraid of it not suiting me or having people laugh or talk about me. I guess it comes from being bullied as a child. So last week I messaged Christina, voiced my concerns and she kindly sent me a few images of ideas of what we can do. After talking to her about it she always puts my mind at ease. Every woman knows how much they need to trust their hairdresser and well to me Christina is Mother Teressa. So like always after some consultation I left it in her hands and i am so pleased with the final result. Not only have i had my miracle treatment again but I have what is to me a brand new look and I am so happy with it.
Here is the aftermath after blocking two hoovers:

Christina has now moved to Essex but still comes and visits family in Preston and manages to squeeze me in everytime. This girl is an absolute godsend. I honestly cannot thank her enough after what she has done for me and my confidence over the past few years. She lifts my spirits everytime I see her.

Have you got a favourite hairdresser? Any special treatments or products?

Moringa Oil

Hello all! Well it as been a while hasn't it? I'm sorry I had to take some time off from the blog and social media, but it was the right thing to do for me personally. I'll not go into details because I'm not that confident in talking about my problems just yet, however i'm back and here to stay!

Today I want to share something I was kindly sent, let me introduce to you Moringa Oil.

Moringa oil is packed full of goodness. It is a cold pressed oil which is to be used sparingly on the skin. Only fresh green leaves which are grown in Spain are used and no harsh ingredients that irritate the skin. Its extraordinary anti-aging products just add to the exceedingly good properties of this product. The packaging is very basic however the fact it has a pump is a dream, it makes it so easy to use.

I applied this product every morning and night as part of my skincare routine. After my serum I used one pump and patted it into my face. I have used this product for a week now and what a difference. Like most girls i'm used to having a lot of redness around my nose and bags around my eyes. However after using this oil the redness has dramatically been reduced and is almost non visible. My skin looks fresh and plumped and I believe it is all down to this oil. All this goodness whilst hydrating my skin thoroughly. It is quite a thick oil which is why only one pump is needed and even then I feel its sometimes a little much.

Overall I definitely enjoyed using this product and will continue to do so over the coming weeks.
You can purchase the oil and other Moringa products such as powder which can be used for smoothies or capsules which are also available for people who don't like the taste or the Moringa powder here There are no known side effects of any of these products as it is an all natural product which to me is extremely important.

You can head straight over to buy the oil here:

Thank you to Wikaniko for allowing me to review this wonderful product.
Have you ever tried something as good as this?
