Wigging it out!

Hi there,
    How has it been? I have been given the all clear and I'm back to blogging! Hurrah for thunder :-)
Its so good to be back. Like I said in my last post I have been protective styling with wigs for a couple of months now and I looove it! Wigs are a fuss free way of keeping my hair protected from, unnecessary manipulation and the elements especially the SUN!! They also give me the opportunity to sport different looks at the drop of a hat. I find that it saves time as I'm done with my hair in less than 5 minutes and its painless too. I also find it super easy to take care of my hair underneath, I just take off the wig and feel my hair if its dry I spritz and seal and that's all.  I prepare my hair for my wigs by cowashing or shampooing (depending on what my hair needs) followed by the LOC method after which  I cornrow my hair. I usually redo my cornrows every Friday or Saturday. Super easy life!! I'll like to share a few of my wigs with you:



My first wig. Its a lace front and I rocked it for a looong time!

A little old fashioned but I love the colour combo :-)

 
 
 
 
 Hope you enjoyed my modest collection ;-)

  2. Presently rocking a wig and I can say its the best thing that's happened to my hair this year!
    Its soo easy!
    And I feel a lot free-er. I just come home and take it off and let air into my scalp.
    Its truly refreshing and I'm thinking of buying more wigs.
    I just need to start taking care of my hair.

    Lovely collection you've got.

  5. I never knew you were based in nigeria. Always used to feel that its only blacks abroad that have time for the natural hair wahala. Good going girl! I've been rocking my natural hair for over a year now. I'm going to lock it in dreads for a while. I also have at least 5 wigs and the feeling is awesome. I can sleep properly, play freely and when I'm taking a shower there is nothing like feeling the water on your scalp. Bliss! You've got an awesome blog and keep it up girl!

PRODUCT REVIEW : SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

Hi guys,                                                             It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

PRODUCT REVIEW // ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER

Hi guys,                                                                                                                                                      I'm here with another review. This time its the ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER. Do not let the name fool you, it's actually a deep conditioner and not a wash out conditioner. Here's my honest review:

CHEAP TRICKS // HEAT BASED DEEP CONDITIONING WITHOUT A STEAMER/DRYER

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
