Hand Sanitizer Review| African Secret

Heart hand sanitizer

When COVID entered our world, so did the increase in use of hand sanitizers. Although I had been using hand sanitizers before it was really not a must have item in my list of hygiene products. For majority of the lock down, that is exactly what I did was lock-e-down, but when I went back to work it needed to be done. [stage direction] Enter the African Secret hand sanitizer…

Cerave Brand Review


Hi Guys. Last year August one of our group members headed to Vegas(thanks Jolene)and generously offered to buy me some skincare.I will be forever grateful to her walking in the middle of the night to Walgreens to get my fix of the Cerave range.?

What attracted me to Cerave was the hyaluronic acid and ceramides in their products.  There products are fragrance free and affordable. I think I paid just under R1000 for these 4 products and the bottles are huge!

DIY Protein Treatment – Part 2 Rice Water

DIY Protein Mask After

Welcome back squad!I finally had the motivation to post another blogpost,this is part 2 of my rice water treatment /DIY Protein Treatment tests.

Lockdown has zapped all my motivation but today I have a burst of inspiration and looking to put it to good use :)I

If you read my previous post, you will know I was extremely happy with the results. In that test I used the rice water before my wash routine. Now I will take you through my process for this second test. I roped Zoë in as well just so that you can see the results on 2 different hair types as well.

Instructions on how I make my rice water is also in the previous post linked above. Please note my rice water contains some salt which is fine as it helps with volume but too much salt can be drying,fortunately I only do the rice water treatment once per month.

Rice Water Treatment

Lockdown has had both Zoë and myself in a hair funk so let me show you what it looked like before.



This time I shampoo’d using my Intrinsicurly me gentle cleanser and then saturated our hair in the rice water and immediately applied the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Deep conditioning treatment to our hair, we then covered it with cling wrap and wrapped in towels for 20 mins.




I have seen some growth again, its not as much as the last time but more than the normal 1cm per month. My hair is so shiny and defined after I do my protein treatment and I got the same results again this time. My hair was not as crunchy after as previously.

I prefer the outcome of the previous routine much more than the way it came out this time, but my hair is looking so good since I have introduced the protein masks into my routine.

I have 2 more tests to do before I can give my final thoughts on the rice water, but I am absolutely loving it. Have you tried the DIY Protein Treatment yet?
