The Mini Tutorial: Turbans for Dummies



I'm still in love with my Loc Extensions and having fun finding new ways to style them. I love wearing them up but the constant bun wearing is killing my neck so I usually wear them down every other day with a wicked turban. (for added wickedness!)


All you need for this one is a metre of fabric
  1. Fold into a triangle place at base of you head and tie, leave the flappy triangle loose.
  2. Pull the loose triangle to the back of your head, leaving the to ends dangling .
  3. Tie the dangling ends again, this time over the flappy triangle.
  4. You should be left with short ends that you can easily tuck under the puff you created.

The Soul Food: Viridian 100% Organic Soul Food Greens


It's January so of course I'm on a health kick. I've incorporated yet another fantastic Viridian product into my diet, this time it's the 100% Organic Soul Food Greens, Soul Food Greens offers a wide range of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, beta carotene, calcium, chlorophyll, iron, vitamin K, vitamin C, B6, B12, folic acid and other trace minerals, combined with high quality vegetable proteins and fibres.
All these ingredients support physical health and performance, detoxification, energy levels, support intestinal flora and help re-establish normal acid/alkaline levels in the body. Though I love my veggies I know that I'm not getting as much as I should, Soul Food Green can be sprinkled on your food ideally 1-3 teaspoons a day. I've taken to putting mine in a salt shaker and adding it food this way. 


C O N T E N T S

Organic Spirulina
Organic Wheatgrass
Organic Barleygrass
Organic Alfalfa leaf
Organic Seagreens Wild Wrack Seaweed
Organic Chlorella


Soul Food Greens tastes pretty good for green powder, but if you can't take the taste they are also available in capsules. I'm a huge fan of Viridian products, I loved the beauty oil and I'm currently taking their Female Multi Vitamins with Saffron and Hibiscus to support female health.

The Nails: Minimalist Nail Art

 

I'm currently in love with minimalist nail art, not only is it on trend but it is super easy to achieve. All you need are a few muted toned nail polishes and some masking tape.

The Faux Locs


I've been wearing my Marley Twists for 4 weeks now, I'm still loving them as a protective style, however they are look a little tired so I decided to transform them into faux locs. Using the tutorial from The Good Hair Blogs YouTube channel 


I used Alex's technique exactly (so don't ask me how I did it! lol) It's taking me a long time to install  this style, I'm currently wearing my hair in a Twist/Loc mash up (which I'm kind of liking!) but I will eventually have a full head of chunky faux locs.
