Look before you leap

Hi guys,
    I dont know about you but the phrase "Look before you leap" was drummed into my ears as a child. It is a deliberate effort to ponder deeply the pros and cons before going ahead to do stuff. It requires careful thought but I have never been a poster child for carefulness. I am very impatient and with that comes a certain carefreeness(I hope there is a word like that) that has had some unsavoury consequences. In my healthy hair journey I have had to learn the hard way the importance of looking carefully before buying any product. On one occasion I bought a shampoo that I thought was a conditioner. I didn't look at the label properly, I saw the word "moisturing" and my brain filled in "conditioner" so I bought it only to discover upon attempted usage that I had bought a shampoo. The bad thing about this is the fact that it happened twice.
I was fooled by "Moisturizing"
I was deceived by the colour and consistency


Having learnt my lesson I decided to look out for the word CONDITIONER on my next trip to the supermarket. So with eyes open wide I marched to the hair product aisle and I picked a conditioner. Only...it wasn't what I wanted! 

I overlooked the "clarifying"

It was a conditioner alright but not a moisturing one. I did not stop to ponder about the clarifying claim the product carried so boldly on the label. I used it but it didnt hit the right spot and I had to go look for another conditioner. This time I had my bifocals on and I read every word on the bottle and with much glee I found what I was looking for - a MOISTURISING conditioner :-)

My beloved condish!!!



The moral of this story is ALWAYS READ THE LABEL of any product before you buy. It saves you a tonne of money, time and effort. Most  importantly it prevents the gnashing of teeth due to one's own folly. Have a great week.

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…
