DIY Homemade Whipped Shea Butter Cream

Hi there,
 This weekend I was busy whipping up a favourite staple of mine -Whipped Shea butter cream. I use it as a sealant and I LOVE it so much because it L.O.C.K.S the moisture in. I'm talking about 3 to 4 days of soft well moisturised hair and for me that's awesome. Basically it involves whipping up Shea butter, one or more oils, Aloe Vera Gel  (or not) and whatever else takes your hair's fancy to create a super creamy heavy duty sealant. Here's my version :

Shea butter
Aloe Vera Gel
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fragrance ( I used sweet pea body fantasy)

Olive Oil, Aloe Vera Gel, Fragrance, Glycerine &Shea butter 
I whip the Shea butter first to loosen it up
Then I add the Olive oil, Aloe Vera gel, Glycerine and Fragrance

I whip it all up

All done... looks so yummy doesn't it?


 You may have noticed that I used a food processor rather than a hand mixer to do the whipping. I don't have a hand mixer so I improvised with the food processor and it works really well. Also since I do not have any essential oils I used a body spray as my fragrance and although I love the sweet pea scent its recommended that you use an essential oil to add fragrance.

So there you have it, my whipped shea butter cream. It has changed the face of my healthy hair journey for the better and I love it!

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…
