Hair, Health, Exercise…oh and Happy Valentine’s

Happy Valentine’s Day Readers.


I know that some people would argue today is a just a made up celebration to get us to spend more money however I see it as a day where we are reminded to think about one another. I recently read about a lady that was found dead in her flat after around 3 years, she was surrounded by Christmas gifts and the TV had been on for the entire time. I felt this was particularly sad that no one had missed her all that time.  So even if you don’t have a special someone to get all romantic with, take this day to reach out to a friend you haven’t heard from in a while. This world is a lonely place sometimes.

Valentine’s day is not just about loving each other either, it’s about loving and taking care of ourselves and with that I am sure you might be interested to hear how my survey on hair, health and exercise is going.

Some Early Survey Results….

Most responses are from the UK, but  there have been a large number from the US as well

There have also been respondents from Jamaica, Sierra Leone and Tanzania to name a few places.

Most of you are natural and have been that way for at least 3 years (natural is growing!)

Guess what? some of you really don’t exercise at all because it would ruin their hairstyles

However I am not even halfway there yet, I need lots more of you to fill out the survey. So this is really a call to anyone that hasn’t filled it in yet. To those of you who have been thinking about it but haven’t got around to it. To those of you who haven’t forward it to every sista in your address book. Please Please Please do so.

I will publish the results and I think it’s important for us to get a true picture of ourselves. You can read all of the reasons why I started this survey here: (Read the Article)
