My experience at the NITC8 Meet-up

Hi guys,
     Like I wished/hoped/prayed for, I was able to attend the Naturals In The City 8 meet-up that I blogged about here. I woke up that morning super excited and ready to spend my dough buying everything I could lay my hands on, but then the rains started. And would not stop. I was determined to attend so I braved the weather and headed out to the venue. I was supremely late because of prior commitments and the crazy traffic at Ajah (got there a few minutes past 5) but thankfully most of the vendors were still there. I met Ifeyinwa of  Love, ifeyinwa, Ebun of Africannaturalistas, Kemi Lewis of KLS naturals, NaturalNigerian and the lady behind Bubbles and Scents(can't remember her name).
    I shopped at KLS, Bubbles and Scents, Ajali, Olori, Sizzelle and Fashion Strings. I couldn't take many pictures because the rain kept pouring and you know how Blackberrys act all foolish once they get the tiniest drop of water in the wrong place. Anyhow here are the few pictures I could come up with:

It was so much fun just being around the vendors and seeing hair products up close and personal. I left with a huge haul and a large hole in my wallet but with the widest smile on my face. Sign me up for the next one :-)

Thanks for stopping by...

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,                                                             It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so?
