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 made some as I have been super busy these days. Its great for pre-pooing and it smells soooo yummy.




 CANTU SHEA BUTTER LEAVE-IN CONDITIONING REPAIR CREAM FOR NATURAL HAIR


I was really excited to get my hands on this one. I love the original Cantu Leave-in and since this
one is specifically for natural hair I am really stoked to see what it will feel like on my strands (expect a review soon!)

So there you have it my MINI haul. And that's all I bought....well not all. I might as well confess that these aren't the only things I bought last month. I also bought 2 more bottles of _ _ _ fill in the blanks yourself :-)  Yassss!! You guessed right,VO5 conditioner!! Now I have just 6 bottles of this precious conditioner..Don't judge me :-D

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…

APHOGEE 2 STEP PROTEIN TREATMENT REVIEW

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.










     STEP ONE: PREPARATION
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 …
