Where to get Jamaican Black Castor Oil in the UK

Hey guys!
I've been asked a few times where I purchase my Jamaican Black Castor Oil from, as it can sometimes be difficult to get hold of, so I thought I'd share a short list of some of the places for you to take your pick from. You can click the image to be directed straight to the JBCO page. All links open in a new window.

Shea Butter Cottage

Got To Be Natural


I hope this helps! I've purchased my JBCO from each of these websites so I can vouch for them and say they are all reliable. 
Feel free to share any other distributors in the comments below!
Take care.

RoseBox UK

RoseBOX Launch Event & Mixer
Source: RoseBox Uk
Heyy guys!
I thought I'd let you know about a new company I came across around a month ago called RoseBox who are launching today (22/11/12).

RoseBox UK is 'a new subscription service for women looking for Natural Hair Care and Skin Care products in the UK'. 
The service is similar to that of GlossyBoxJolie Box and CurlBox in the states, but it's the first of its kind here in the UK.
RoseBox held a launch party two thursdays ago, which I was unable to attend sadly. It would have been a good thing to blog about, but from reading other blog posts on the event, it sounds like it was a success.

The box will include a mini magazine full of information and 5 sample products with at least one full sized product. There will be a mixture of some well- known brands as well as some niche products for customers to try out. Like the GlossyBox, RoseBox can be purchased on a monthly or annual subscription as well as the option of making a one off purchase. The box retails at £20 per month with a £2.95 postage and packaging charge.

You don't necessarily have to be natural to purchase this box, but if you're interested in trying out natural products, and with that i mean products with all natural ingredients, then this box may be for you.
Also, if you are a self- confessed product junky, this box may also be for you as it allows you to feed your junky-ism without committing yourself to a full sized product.

RoseBox's website is set to launch today with 50 boxes available to purchase, so it will be first come, first serve (There will be more boxes available next month). I have the worst luck so I doubt I will be one of the first 50 lol, but if this service does interest you, and you manage to purchase one then let me know what you think of it!

You can make a purchase and find out more information from their website (when it launches later today):
If you have twitter, you can follow RoseBoxUK: @RoseBOXUK

Transition | 5 Months post

Heyy guys!
So as it says in the title, i am now 5 months post. Yay! It's come around quick!
As I described in my last transition update post, there are still no troubles this month. The transition is going rather well... though I hope I haven't jinxed myself now. 
I haven't done anything particularly fancy this month. I've just been wearing my hair in a bun most days.
I'm preparing to straighten my hair next week for my graduation, eek! Heat hasn't passed my hair since my last relaxer (26th June '12)... so its been a good while. I'm slightly nervous. At this point I should explain I'm only straightening a small section of leave out (I'm going to give my clip-ins another go). To some it may not be a big deal, but to me it sorta is lol. I'm going to be sure to slap on heaps of the heat protector for increased protection. The last thing I want is damage of any sort, especially on my hair which has just grown in. It would almost seem like such a waste of new growth, you know what I mean.

Speaking of which, I'm loving my new growth at the moment. As usual I cannot stop touching it lol. I'm starting to see a pattern now in the curls. I've found that this pattern isn't the same for my entire head i.e the curls seem to be tighter in the middle sections of my head, and fairly looser on the sides. In the image above, I held a white piece of paper against my new growth to show you guys more of the defined curls. The image on the left side shows my new growth at its maximum length; I just held my hair taut. The image on the right shows my new growth without me having to 'stretch' or pull it. So my new growth lies naturally at around 50% of its true length.
At this point I have no idea what hair type I am. I thought I was 4a possibly 3c? The whole hair type malarkey isn't entirely important to me, but if any of you have an idea of what i may be, then by all means let me know :)

I think that's all for this months update. My regimen is still exactly the same, and I haven't incorporated any new products or methods this month. It's been pretty stress- free :)
Hope you're all well. Take Care.
