Maintenance and tips for our crown.

No truer words have been spoken, than “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change your life”, I know this to be true first hand with my many, many hair transformation! This post is dedicated to your unique crown, long, short, no hair, or rainbow hair; I will be sharing my very special tips.

We all have the desire to transform our looks time to time and the easiest thing to do is to find a pair of scissors or to go pick up a box colour from the shops.Once again, I know this because I’ve been that girl! But what are we  really doing to our hair, if you think about it, how much damage have you done to your hair ? For myself, I’ve always been a serial hair cuter and colourist !

By the time I was graduating my hair had been through countless shades of brown and black, and because I was a rooky hairdresser if you looked closely at my hair it was like looking at a patchy brown and black quilt. So naturally, the next step was to go blonde ! The perfect, stress free, easy and fast option for any deep brunette, right ? Once I finally achieved my dream of having blonde hair, my once healthy strong and split end free hair became frail, dry and lost all of it’s volume.

My goal for my hair was for it to look like qwen stafani’s so I knew I had to make some huge changes FAST, so here they are !

2 . Protecting it from heat / for bleach blondes use minimal heat.

Give yourself a break from heat, every time you straighten or curl your hair you’re putting emence strain on your hair. So instead try cool drying your hair in rollers or lowering your heat setting on your dryer and straightener. Or why don’t you try ionised straightener ? which will leave your hair feeling bouncy and light.

After your hairs has been dyed/ bleached your scalp is stunned into thinking that its dry all the time, leading to major dandruff  as it cannot renew and properly slough off the old, dead and dirty cells.

The greatest love you’ll ever have

Months or even a year before creating what is now E I L I S H, I would spend hours looking through all of these stunning beauty blogs, constantly comparing my non existant blog at the time to theirs. Every comparison and self-criticism was like taking a shot of the Devils elixir.

It had to stop, and by the time New Years came along I knew I had to put my big girl pants on and finally start a blog – but most of all, stop bloody comparing !

Its been a full month now and I’ve never looked back ✨

And hunny, let me tell you sometimes it can be a struggle especially when our life IS social media 24/7 ~ but at the end of the day, no matter what the most important job in life is being ourselves and loving it !

So to anyone thinking about a new opportunity a job, blog, youtubing or just increasing their platform on Instagram but have been scared about what others may say or are comparing themselves to bigger stars – I say go for it, forget the negative and rise like a star !

To leave off, this  is one of my favourite verses of all time; and I think that we all deserve to say it to ourselves.


love to you all xx
