My silk scarf is heeere!

Hey there,
      In this post I wished for a silk scarf and with much joy in my heart I hereby announce: It is heeere! (Shout out to the best sister in the world... Alison!) I am really excited because a silk scarf is grade one protection for your hair when you sleep. Before I knew anything about satin bonnets and silk scarves I used to moisturise my hair just before I sleep and in the morning I would wake up to Sahara dry hair. While I was on cloud 9 my cotton pillowcase  would suck out all the moisture from my strands leaving them dry. A silk scarf protects your hair from losing moisture especially while you sleep. The silk material breathes and rather than absorb the moisture and oils from your hair, it lets it remain where it belongs - on your strands. Its also great for keeping your hair away from prying eyes when you are having a bad hair day. I also use mine as a pillow covering sometimes when I cannot find my satin bonnet or when I don't want anything on my head while I sleep. I usually wake up to soft and slippery well moisturised hair after using my scarf  which means that I don't have to re-moisturise my hair in the morning..coolness!  If you want to wake up to moisturised hair think about investing in a silk scarf, it will help you on your healthy hair journey.

    1. Hi oma, I had the same experience at balogun market. I had to ask my sister in texas to get it for me. I think its called a silk scarf. There are also satin bonnets that do the same job. Thanks for stopping by

  3. Loll @ 'Sahara dry'.

    I can definitely see this as a statement piece in an outfit.

  4. It is hard to find silk scarves like these nowadays… lucky!

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,
  Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing:

Use the right tool
 Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.

Comb your hair only when it is damp
 Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be. When your hair is damp it can better withstand the force of…

How to create a a sleek faux bun with short natural hair!!!!

Hi people!
   So its been a while since my last post and I apologize. I have been all kinds of busy but I have got something really cool for you all today. I haven't really done any hairstyle posts on this blog  because in my bid to retain length I just cornrow and throw on a wig. I have been doing that for months with the random Afro-puff thrown in once in awhile but this week I just wasn't  in the mood for any of my wigs. I decided to finally do something I have been dying to do: a faux bun!! Its super easy just follow the steps below and you'll be rocking your faux bun in a couple of minutes :-)

                           Preparing my hair

I stretched my hair with my cornrows first. I took out the braids then moisturised and sealed:

 I sectioned my hair into 2 parts. I started from the front section. I added some Ecostyler gel, brushed it lightly with a toothbrush and pulled it into a bun on the top of my head:

 After I was done with the front, I brushed up the back and…


Hi guys,
   I don't know if I have mentioned it before but I have been shedding like crazy for months. I don't know how I still have any hair left on my head. My hair is also breaking and doesn't seem to retain moisture as much as it used to. After a really terrible day of detangling( I use a wide tooth comb now) and I knew I had to get help. I have seen quite a few Instagram testimonials on the Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment so I decided to try it out. Its a hard protein treatment that promises to stop breakage and shedding. I read a few reviews online first then I got right into it.

I thoroughly detangled my hair. I did this because the treatment makes hair very hard so to prevent severe tangling and breakage during the process its best to detangle first.Shampooed with the ORS creamy Aloe shampoo. Its best to shampoo the hair before applying a protein treatment to get the best results.Sectioned my hair into 4 twists to make my hair easier …
