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

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.

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…
