In the last few weeks, I have had a number of female clients and friends ask me how to achieve a a flat, toned stomach. Six packs used to be the epitomy of manliness; maybe they still are. But they are now also seen by many women as a sign of fitness, health and strength. It's cool to be strong, and although not everyone wants a six pack, most people I know at least want a flat stomach. So for those who's New Year's Resolution lasted past the fourth of january, follow the five steps below for a washboard stomach:

Product Review: Tangle Teezer Detangling Brush

I bought this brush some time last year after reading reader reviews about how it melts away tangles. I got it for my daughter as her hair is TANGLE city with a capital T. So any description that has melting and tangles in the same sentence and I'm on it like brown on rice #gerrit?

Smooth down those hairlines or else!

I have found myself getting all hot under the collar over a thread on Facebook about hairlines, of all things. 

Yeah, I know. It's a natural thing. 

Wait, no. Actually, slicked down hairlines are an everybody thing. Black, White or Asian. nothing says 'coiffed' more than edges that are lying flat. If you have fine, straight hair, a soft brush may be all you need to lay put those flyaways to rest. The further up the hair typing chart you get, the harder it gets, the more desirable it seems to become. And if you have baby hair to boot, you're made. #itsablackthing

Curl R Us: Vikky is Ab Fab!

Finger coils
My name is Vikky Wambui, I have been natural for 18 months and I am a product junkie!

I had relaxed hair for over 10 years before I decided to go natural...some may say that my hair looked healthy, but over the years it had started to thin, break & was quite dry despite regular trips to the hairdresser’s for rather pricey “treatments” (read deep conditioners) and using top of the range hair relaxing brands.

Texturisers: The other natural hair?

A while back, a friend rocked up at my house sporting a bad a$$ afro and I almost passed out.  I hadn't seen her with her hair out of braids in goodness knows how long and I vividly remember her telling me when I went natural that I'd get bored and return to crack so you can imagine how surprised I was to see her join team kinky. Then she told me it was texturised and I was floored. The texturisers I'd seen before then had all looked just like relaxers but hers looked and felt natural. She was quite pleased with the results as she had been toying with the idea of natural hair for a while.

Can everyone rock natural hair?

I have been following with great interest a post on a Facebook group about a lady who went to a reknowned Kenyan hairdresser's salon. The lady in question had her hair washed using his own range of products, twisted and dried under a hood drier. When the twists were undone, this was the result: 


Needless to say the lady in question was displeased and complained. 

The hairdresser's response was as follows:
