5 AWESOME NIGERIAN BLOGGERS WITH NATURAL HAIR!

Hello guys,
  This post is actually a double treat for me because It's about 2 things I am crazy about - blogs and natural hair ;-) I think bloggers are amazing because they share so much of their life, experiences, advice and routines with the world for free. I know I am not alone when I say that I have learnt so much about life, beauty, hair, make-up, style and a lot more, just by reading blogs. Free education from the comfort of my home...nothing beats that! And from my blog name you already know  how I feel about natural hair ;-)) Mix up the 2 and this post was conceived.
  This is a list of 5 of my favourite Nigerian bloggers with natural hair. Mind you, they are not natural hair bloggers per se, they blog about a host of other things (with a sprinkling of hair stuff once in a while). Enjoy!

SISI YEMMIE AKA Doroblogger
I love Sisi Yemmie! Her blog is one of my favourite Nigerian blogs. She blogs about EVERYTHING- Food, Places, Relationships, Hair, Technology, Fashion, you nam…

MY MAY MINI HAUL!!

Hello guys,
    I love buying stuff! And I know many of you experience the rush I feel when I get home and lay my purchases on the bed for closer inspection. In these days of my healthy hair journey I am constantly looking out for hair products that my hair will love (remember my love affair with VO5?) I made a few purchases last month and here there are:

PERM RODS!!!!
So I finally got perm rods. Thing is I didn't know what the sizes written on the website I ordered them from stood for, so I got them in various sizes. I will get more soon to complete each set (I'm thinking 60 0f each) and when I do,be ready for tutorials! I cant wait to try the perm rod set and the popular twist and curl method that has been trending on Instagram for a while.



COCONUT OIL
This one was unintentional. I asked someone to check Park n Shop AKA Spar for the semi solid coconut oil and when he couldn't find that he bought this one. If you remember, I make my own Coconut oil but its been a while since I…

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…
