Mom and me curls with Pretty Please Charlie

One of the first South African blogs I found when I decided to become a “blogger” (am I a blogger yet by the way? have I passed the test? can I put it on my cv yet?) was Charlene from Pretty Please Charlie. I ended up featuring her about her blog and about her shoes.

I like her, can you tell?

Her daughter and herself have the most amazing blonde curls since like EVER!!! so here she is chatting about her hair 🙂

If you follow me on instagram (which you totally should HERE) you will know that I mentioned before that my son has a girl twin.

Curly kids countdown: Shanton and Gea

Today I do my first curly kids feature!!! (Not counting Aidikins)

If you ever wondered what the point of these features and the curly countdowns were…the answer is simple:

I love natural curls but I also know that it can be a pain to maintain. With all the different hair types, curl patterns and new products coming out every day you are never quite sure if you are doing things correctly. So I thought if I could feature enough people with different hair types, curl patterns and routines,other curlies could hopefully find their match and that should make things a little easier.

I’ve also had friends with straight hair, who have curly kids, ask me to feature some curly kids so they can get some tips…

ALSO I’m nosey and I love looking at nice curls and asking people random questions.

All about “the big chop” with Des

Before and After

Des is really great, we get along like a house on fire. She is part mechatronics student, part paint/sketch artist, part photographer and completely crazy, which makes her even cooler 🙂
I chatted to her about what the big chop meant to her.
