The Shampoo: Serwaa Clay Shampoo



Clay cleansing has definitely been one of the most important discoveries of my natural hair journey. Clay cleansing is an amazing way to clean your natural hair without stripping it of it's natural oils (ya'll know how much our hair loves it's natural oils!) as part of the Max Hydration Method I've been using clay rinses which I've been mixing myself, which just adds time to an already lengthy regimen. So I've been looking into ready mixed clay cleansers and I've found the perfect one by Cioccolatina from the Sheabutter Cottage.  Serwaa Clay Shampoo mixes Bentonite Clay with Shea and Cocoa Butter for a 100% natural product that cleans hair like a dream.

The Update: Max Hydration Method & Me


Where do I start with the all consuming Max Hydration Method! My life revolves around Freya and Max Hydration, Clay treatments come before, Laundry and Sex (Sorry Mr NaturalBelle I have a treatment that needs to come off in 10 minutes!) I want to give up, but I know the secret that binds us to Max Hydration.......my hair feels unreal! 

The Brush: Air Motion Pro More Than Just A Tangle Teezer With A Handle?



Of course my child is perfect in every way! she farts flowers and is a baby genius. However even I have to admit that bath time is a struggle, combing out Freya's hair is a bit of a mission to say the least. Due to my hands off approach to styling opting to have her roam free when she is not at nursery. This does leave us with a birds nest at the ends of the week. Like most people I dug out the Tangle Teezer and struggled to grip hold of it whilst dealing with a wriggly 2 year old. I found that as good as the Tangle Teezer is at de-tangling I still had to section the hair and take time or Freya's very curly hair would sometimes tangle in the brush I have also found that Tangle Teezers can cause breakage on very curly hair. Then I got my hands on the Air Motion brush which I initially believed was a Tangle Teezer with a handle, which rectifies one of the grips I have with Tangle Teezers. However I have been using the Air Motion on Freya's hair for a few weeks and have noticed how much easier it is to brush her hair. If you want details on how the Air Motion brush works you will have to visit the website, because it's like some kind of science that Nasa could of thought up! 

The Mini Fashionista: How To Have An Insta-Cool Baby & Not Go Broke



If you follow Natural Belle on Instagram then you know that I love to dress Freya up in cute clothes, she is quite the fashionista and have taken over my Instagram with her diva demands and on point shoe game! You can't log into Instagram these days with out seeing some kid looking cuter than you and I'm not ashamed to say that I'm pretty much addicted to baby fashion.
That being said I'm not about to go broke for kids clothes that they can only wear for 6-9 months tops, and if you ever see me purchase a designer handbag for Freya you have permission to punch me in the face!
