My spray bottle

Hi there,
   The clouds have lifted and the sun is shining through :-) No more lamentations from now on. I'm filled with renewed love for my tresses SSKs and all else be damned!! Moving on... As I spritzed my hair in preparation to sleep tonight I lovingly caressed my spray bottle and wondered how my journey would have been without it.

 It makes life so easy for me as all I have to do to moisturise my hair is just squeeze the trigger a few times and I'm done. Right now I have a mixture of one part glycerine to two parts water in my bottle. I use this mix as a leave in, as a detangler and as a revitaliser for my wigs.

A constant feature in the life of my spray bottle

I discovered a new use for my spray bottle recently - Apple cider vinegar application! I mix it in my bottle and spray it on scalp and hair to cleanse. As always it makes it super easy to get this part of my regimen done.

There are a lot of things you can add to your spray bottle that will bring great benefits to your hair. They include aloe vera juice, rose water, glycerine, oils etc. With water as a base you are sure to give Your strands a treat with each spray.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. That's for sure. Its my detangler,leave in,moisturizer... I even add few drops of oils nd conditioner to d mix. Love love this mix

  2. I've never used glycerin but they say it's really good

  3. Glycerin? Waoo! Lemi try this

  4. Ever since I discovered aloe vera juice, my store bought creamy leave in lasts for me cos I only use a bit after wash day!! In my spray bottle is 80%water, glycerin and aloe vera juice. I use it daily and I totally love it.

  5. I added jojoba oil and coconut oil to mine, bt noticed d oil is floating on top.when I spray, its like I'm wettin my hair with ordinary water

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 …
