A SWEAR-BY BEAUTY TIP 

Retinol serum at night and sunscreen in the day, even during winter

A SWEAR-BY HAIR TIP

Don’t use shampoos with parabens and sulphates 

A SMALL JOY 

Having my nephew stay over. I love waking up knowing he’s there

HAIR WASH ROUTINE 

Shampoo every other week and only use conditioner on days that I wet my hair. I condition it every other day then use a moisturiser and wrap my hair in an old t-shirt for drying. It helps the curls pop

WHY DIZZIAK 

Because it works! It’s moisturising and makes my curls stand out, and eliminates frizz. I never have to worry about which product to use now. It will forever be part of my hair care routine

GREAT HAIR MEMORY 

Combing my hair for hours in front of the telly when I was little

NIGHTMARE HAIR STORY

I went for a haircut at a place I had never been before and they cut it so short I almost cried. All I wanted was the ends trimmed! I’ll never make that mistake again. 

ICON

My mum. Getting older I can see how strong she needed to be for us. She really fought to give us the life we have

IF YOU COULD GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW

I love to explore, so somewhere I’ve never been before, like Costa Rica or Panama. I have a romantic idea in my head of adventures there. Bird spotting in the jungle or cruising down the river in a long-boat

ONE THING YOU WOULD LOVE TO DO 

Dive in coral reefs

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE

You can’t control someone else’s actions, you can only control your reaction to that action
