of coconut milk range is amazing and my hair feels like silk as these
products really do nourish and moisturise both the scalp and hair.

grapefruit mango butter and pasionfruit guava products which all look
equally tempting.

name a few. You can also purchase this from Leilu's Amazon

How I Protect My hair before Shampoo - PrePoo

Hi All,

This is a video I made showing how I Protect my hair before it is shampoo'ed. This process is called PrePoo for short on all the blogs, forums and communities.

It shows me apply my oil (JBCO) and conditioner (Hello Hydration) prior to shampooing. Once this is done I put it under a plastic cap and leave.

I then shampoo and condition as normal. Note that the amounts of oil and conditioner are not visible in the video. Sorry - Bad Angling of the camera- but I would suggest about a 50p sized glob so that you can distribute it all over the hair. For more info check out PrePoo, CoWash and Shampoo

Thanks for watching

    In a Rush - For the Super Mum

    Super Mum
    If like me you are full time mum, also in full time work and a part time student making time for your hair isnt easy.

    I would recommend these quick and fast routines:

    Wash your hair Wednesdays and Saturdays if you are doing a two day a week routine
    Saturdays only, if you can only manage one day a week.
    Keeping to a routine is good for your hair and documenting what you do and which products you use in a particular week is a good way to keep track of what works for your hair, also is you are super busy scheduing in time for your hair is always a good idea.

    Two Day Regime
    Wednesday morning - 20 minutes
    Wake up and immediately pre-poo with plastic cap
    Should take no longer than 2 minutes then sort the kids out make breakfast etc.

    During your shower co - wash, then towel dry and put your moisturising conditioner for about ten minutes while you have your shower, shave etc and then wash out.

    Saturdays are a bit more tricky with the kids/pets running around your legs- 30 minutes
    Like before pre-poo as soon as you wake up - doesn't matter if you leave it on for a while as it may take some time to get to the shampooing and washing out if you are busy.

    Ask your husband/partner or someone to watch the kids etc. or wait till the kids are taking their nap. Do your shampoo. Towel dry the hair ( I use a muslin square as towels can be quite rough on the hair) Apply your deep conditioner (herbal essences +egg etc.) put on a plastic cap or go under a dryer ( I don't tend to use heat on my hair anymore) wait another 15 minutes and wash out.

    I tend to put in my leave ins and air dry( if you are at home all day), but a blow dryer may be quicker. I have done this on a Saturday morning before my son woke up and then went out to the shops at 9:00.

    I tend to wait until my son is asleep and do most of this stuff at night - not always possible if you are dead tired but sometimes the only way to get this done with enough time. If you cant afford yourself two days a week, try once a week and do this on a Saturday evening when you may not have as many distractions

    I once fell asleep in my sons room and woke up at 11:00. I was dog tired but I knew I wouldn't find the time again so I stayed up - did a 15 minute prepoo, shampooed and conditioned for 30 minutes. Took just over an hour.

    Like I said before a little bit of vanity and a lot of care. Let us know what your routines are and if you find/make the time to take care of your hair.

    On a Budget

    Relaxed and Desperate is the main theme of this blog - so it would follow that many of you like myself are either 'on a budget' or 'in a rush'.
    It may seems from all my posts that you need an excess of money and time to follow any of my proposed regimes.
    Not So My Friends!!

    On a Budget
    For those of you on a budget I recommend:

    PrePoo - Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil (free if you already have in your kitchen)
    Apparently some Tesco stores sell these however the coconut oil may be harder to come by
    Whatever you get check that there is no salt in it, most of the virgin oils are cooking oils and should be relatively low priced.
    Tesco Extra Virgin Oil (250ml) - £1.00
    KeraCare Essential Oils £8.50
    If you prefer to use a conditioner rather than an oil
    Tesco Coconut Conditioner for Dry/Damaged Hair (500ml) - £0.99

    Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner (400ml) - £3.26. (This is the one I plan to try next)

    Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner (400ml) - £3.26.
    Organix Coconut Conditioner - Boots - £5.00

    Organix Coconut Shampoo Boots - £5.00

    Deep Conditioner
    1 x Egg is probably your best bet
    but if you can stretch to a deep conditioner I recommend:
    Joico K-Pak Deep Penetrating Reconstructor £13.95
    or mix egg with

    Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner Sachet 20ml - Boots

    Moisturising Conditioner
    Organix Coconut Conditioner Boots - £5.00

    Leave In
    Curls Milkshake - £11.95

    or Aussie Conditioner Miracle hair Insurance £3.99 Boots (contains JoJoba Oil - great for detangling)

    Before I forget there is no need to buy those expensive plastic caps from Boots. I have been using plastic bags with a towel over it, for a while now and seems to do the trick

    The above is the minimum I would recommend buying and use them sparingly - enough to cover your hair and pay attention to the ends.

    Leave comments about what you use routinely that save you money or little tricks you have picked up on your hair journey that help you save.

    Hair Update



    So, back from holiday and had my hair relaxed by my Mummy using all the techniques I described in the previos post Self Relaxing. These are the results. Just above shoulder length and doing pretty good considering I am still experiencing breakage and shedding

    I also thought I would post a pic of all the products I bought while in canada - These should last me until next year some time - i did spend $100 ( approx. £50) but got twice as much as I would have if I had tried to source the products here the best thing i picked up was more Jamaican Black Castor Oil - $19.99!!! thats about £10 - I paid £19.99 for the stuff I bought of ebay here - so my new challenge is to find you ladies a cheaper more reliable version of this.

    This is what I got for me and I also picked up a few more things for my cuz which arent in the pic. So a pretty decent haul for £50 if you ask me for us 'relaxed and desperate' beauties!

    Lots of Elasta QP stuff including their 'H2' leave in condition which I haven't been able to source here, and Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship conditioner which one of the other bloggers Sunshyne on raves about.
    Also picked up two large pots of Elasta QP DPR 11 Reconstructor (with Olive Oil - thats new!)
    andAphogee 2 minute Keratin Reconstructor, Balancing Moisturiser and Leave in Conditioner.
    Along with some Motions Leave ins from WalMart.

    Will definately be reviewing these in the next few weeks
