When I started wearing my hair in twists I’d style them in my own way and now it’s my signature look.
What are your favourite hair products and why?
Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey and Lisa’s Hair Elixir Restoring Hair oil– I used to stock up on it loads whenever I travelled to NYC but now you can get it online. I also use products from Design Essentials in particular the Almond & Avocado Moisturising & Detangling Sulfate Free Shampoo and I love the Natural Coconut & Monoi Nourishing Shampoo. They’re Almond & Avocado Detangling Leave-In Conditioner is also fab, it makes my hair easier to take out and doesn’t leave that white build up on my hair. I also love to use Le Labo Poivre 23 and Santal 33 Perfume oil on my hair I’m literally obsessed, I go through them way too quickly.
Have you had any major hair disasters?
I had the wet look permed hair back in the 90’s, my hair was so destroyed that I had to cut it all off and start again. I also did the same when I went natural, I chopped it off and started again.
When do you feel most beautiful?
On holiday when my skin turns jet black and I feel I don’t need to use any make up, just that natural glow.
Tell us about your beauty routine?
Morning routine – First thing I do is tongue scraping it’s an Ayurvedic ritual, then I shower with Aesop Geranium Shower Gel when I’m feeling fancy otherwise good old Sanex followed by coconut or almond oil as a body moisturiser. I also love 100% natural Avocado refined butter from Amazon.
