      Wa alaykumasalaamm Safiya, thanks for your lovely words, I’m checking out your blog now and I like! :)

    Totally love your blog! You’re going to make me broke soon if I don’t stop reading!

    • Hafsa

      Ohhhh no lol I don’t want to be the blame for your bank account suffering, stop spending!

    lol I think you might have just saved my bank account! Today I tried coconut milk as a treatment (if I’m not mistaken you wrote about this) and its pretty cool, nothing wow, but my hair is soft lol, don’t think I like protein much so I’ll try doing this once a month.

    • Hafsa

      I’m glad to have helped your bank account Kifaayah!! Protein needs to be approached with caution, too much will leave your hair brittle and too little won’t help at all, it’s best to have a good balance.

    I’m sure I’ve read somewhere that you battle out with acne, if it is mild or moderate then I swear by this. Ditch everything in your cupboard and use witch hazel twice a day as a cleanser/toner then use Zineryt lotion (has to be prescribed by the doctor), avoid foundation and as for face scrub, use a muslin cloth soaked in hot water. If you don’t notice a difference in your acne after 3 weeks you then you can sue me :p (though I own very little so probably not worth wasting your time) lol. It has done me so good, I always come back after trying all sorts of things from duac to epiduo (which just wasted my money! Silly prescription charges!). Best of luck!

    • Hafsa

      Thanks for the tips :) Duac worked for me quite a few years ago, around the time I was 15 but not anymore and I’ve had great results with Epiduo which I’m glad about. But, I’ve never heard of Zineryt, I’ll definitely keep that name safe and mention it to my doctor. Is it an all over facial moisturiser?

    Our blog concepts are very similar. Inner beauty and self-love are exceptionally important :)

    • Hafsa Issa-Salwe

      They’re important indeed! :)
