Q: How do I make clean home hair colour actually work on my hair?

Q: How do I make clean home hair colour actually work on my hair?

A: What a good question! This isn’t easy. In fact I’ve been looking for a natural home hair colour for years that doesn’t make my hair go red or orange and that actually covers greys. But the case for home hair colour is a good one: I'm brunette, if I went to the hairdresser every time I needed to colour my roots I would be $90 out of pocket every three weeks. But it's frustrating. Because I use all natural colour, every time I did it I'd follow all the instructions and still would end up with stubborn grey tufts around my...

Bannisters Port Stephens - My mental health weekend

Bannisters Port Stephens - My mental health weekend

Every year my husband and I take a weekend off by ourselves WITHOUT THE CHILDREN! I know. Crazy right.  We justify this indulgence because I have an amazing mum and dad who love looking after our kids (they're six and eight), and will happily take them over the weekend. In the beginning, I used to feel really guilty - I have MAJOR mother guilt and two days is the longest I have ever left them. I also realised it was because ever since becoming a mum I feel anxious getting on planes without them. What if it crashes and I leave...

Anxious? Fatigued? A woman? You might need magnesium.

When I was trying to get pregnant, my natural therapies GP (she was an actual doctor too) put me on a bucketload of supplements, magnesium one of them. “Take two before bed to relax your body,” she said. Desperate, I downed that magnesium for months. Did it work? Who knows? That’s the thing with supplements, do you ever know if they’re working? A few years later I’m at a masseuse who feels the tight muscles in my back and tells me I should take magnesium, “to help stop the calcification of my muscles.” Huh? “When you’re lacking magnesium your muscles...

Travel Guide to Sri Lanka

Travel Guide to Sri Lanka

There’s a moment of the complete unknown when an elephant steps in front of our jeep and faces us, head on. It’s a huge male. In Sri Lanka, the females have tusks so the elephant staring us down is tuskless, but its large ears flared out, and sheer bulk of the animal make this a daunting moment, nonetheless. Everyone holds their breath and I subconsciously tighten my grip on my children. Suddenly he decides a showdown isn’t worth it and turns slowly off into the bush, crushing bristles under those giant feet as he goes. The kids didn’t even notice...

Rich Girl Hair. Do you have it?

Rich Girl Hair. Do you have it?

There's one thing in every girl's life we continually struggle with. Something huge, with enormous impact on our day to day. If it works, it can make us. But if it doesn't we're destined to a day filled with uncertainty and self-consciousness. We find ourselves making excuses. "I overslept," or, "It wasn't meant to be like this." But in the end we want to hide under a rug until it all goes away. I'm talking about hair, obviously. What else can so illogically and irreparably change our mood? If it works, you're flying high, I've been known to go out...
