Hair update :-)

Hi guys,
    If you remember, I did the Inversion method in October 2013 with arguable results and I said I would repeat the process in December. I never got around to doing it so I figured I would start in January 2014 and track my progress monthly to see if I can achieve my goal of gaining 6 inches by December. To get my hair ready for inversion I did a length check and here are the results:


Before, just after and 3 months post inversion


Check out the distance from my ear to my fingertip


Some growth right?

I did not do a anything special. I washed once in 2 weeks, finger detangled solely, conditioned, deep conditioned then protective styled with African  threading underneath my wigs. So without depending on Inversion or other growth aids I gained a little more than an inch in 3 months. I dont know if I should be happy or indifferent but I am kinda leaning towards happy. Growth is growth and some growth is better than no growth. I'm kicking off the 2014 inversion trial tonight and i hope to give you an update in 7 days. Wish me some growth ;-)

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…

    If you live in Nigeria then you are aware that things are getting out of hand financially. The recession is hitting really hard and it seems no one is immune. Inspite of this I do not want my Fro to suffer so I am working on making a lot of homemade products and utensils to ensure my hair doesn't feel the strain of the harsh economy.
