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:

My hairstyle for the event - A side braided fro ;-)

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...

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? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

Meet the product:

Hi guys,                                                                                                                                                      I'm here with another review. This time its the ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER. Do not let the name fool you, it's actually a deep conditioner and not a wash out conditioner. Here's my honest review:

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
