Filming & Photography: Canon 600D for filming and blog photos. 50mm lens normally used. Canon EOSM used for vlogging. One studio light used (it's winter so I now have to use at least one – grrr).

Dog Questions: My dogs name is Nala. She's a Pomeranian x Chihuahua cross and is almost fully grown. You won't really see her getting any bigger than this!

Piercings and Tattoos: I have three forward helix piercings, three lobe piercings and my tragus pierced (and yes, they did hurt) and a nose piercing which I frequently take in and out at the moment. I have a few visible tattoos, and a lot of hidden ones.

  1. I love your hair! I share the same length as yours but mine is naturally black. I always wanted to dye my hair to brunette but I'm so scared it'd hurt my hair! I once had very damaged hair but now it've recovered but I still don't want to do anything harmful to it again. These are great tips!

  2. If you use repairing/strengthening products too frequently it will strengthen your hair too much and it will become dry/ brittle and snap off! It's the same with overusing nail strengtheners, your nails will get too hard and break πŸ™‚

  3. Great video! I had to chop my hair off to just above my shoulders because of heat damage.. I never used a protectant and used a new straightener too hot and burned off hair.. Lol. Luckily I have really thick hair so you couldn't tell much but I'm a heat protector freak now.

  4. Suzie!! This was super informative! I don't put all that much product on my hair but this really made me want to try out the ones you mentioned. Also, you're like one of the few people I can watch a straight up "talky" video of and not even feel like it's been 15 mins. lol.

  5. Yes your hair is gorgeous! You look amazing with your natural hair, people spend so long getting that texture and you have it naturally! Babe <3 <3
    The L'Oreal Ever Riche line is one of my favourites as well πŸ™‚

  6. My hair looks exactly like your's right now and I've been using "it's a 10" for about 10 years or so. I'm not sure if you can get that product in the UK but it's amazing!!!! I highly recommend it.

  7. This really inspires me to get into haircare as I'm much more of a makeup and skincare gal, I have naturally straight hair so I usually just wash it then let it air-dry and throw it up in a bun. Definitely going to try out the Hair Repair and Liz Earle Hair Oil (didn't even know she made hair products!) as I really trust your opinion πŸ™‚Β β™₯

  8. I don't brush my hair either it's curly but I straighten it most of the time & I just can't brush it so every time someone touches it I feel embarrassed that they will feel tangles
