Hi guys,
   My wallet has been busy these past couple of weeks. First I went to the NITC8 meet-up and got some stuff and then Dabs over at SavvyandChic did a blogvessary sale which I was fortunate enough to take part in. Take at look at my haul:

Rhassoul Clay from KLS Naturals.N3500
I am eager to use this cleansing and deep conditioning clay mask for my hair and face.
Black Castor Oil from Sizzelle. N1900.
I was not too happy with the Black castor oil mixed with Lavender because I wanted the regular castor oil which I feel is more effective. I didn't really look at the bottle till I got home. I hope it works as well as the regular  dark one though.

Lip Balm from AJALI. N1000
I just had to buy something from Ifeyinwa and I settled for this since I already have body butters and hair oils.
Perm rods (N1050 @ N350 each) ,Cantu Leave-in (2100) & Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque (3200) from Olori.
I was so HAPPY to see my Boo Thang- Cantu Shea Butter leave-in! I was eager to retry it after my disastrous affair with the "Natural" leave-in. I grabbed it along with some perm rods to join the ones I already have. The deep treatments mask wasn't available at the meet-up but I paid for it and got it delivered for free first thing Monday morning.

Chocolate body scrub from Bubbles and Scents. N1600
 The lady at the stand had the happiest smile, I just had to buy something from her. I settled for this yummy body scrub.

Hair claws from FashionStrings. N500 for each pack.
I was really happy to see these hair claws that are great for sectioning hair.
Headband from FashionStrings. N500
I got it for free since my purchases were above N20o0.

Flexi Combs from FashionStrings N500.
This can be used for afro puffs.
Wired Headband from FashionStrings N1000.
The lady demonstrated how to use this headband, it was really cool.

Side Combs from FashionStrings.N500
This will be great for Fro hawks.

Hair Accessories from FashionStrings. N500 for the 2 packs.
To be honest I thought these purchases from FashionStrings were such a steal until I got home and the scales fell from my eyes. I don't know, but I think these things should have been a lot cheaper especially with the quality.

Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in from Savvyandchic.N1500 on sale
 I just had to get another one.

Grapeseed oil from Savvyandchic. N1500
 Been looking for this oil and I'm glad I got it on sale.

I even got free delivery.
That's all folks...Till next time :-)


  1. I really need some black castor oil, been meaning to get a bottle. You got some great sutff!

    onacruz blog

    1. Black castor oil is the truth. Thanks for stopping by :-)

  2. I got some stuff from Fashion Strings too and just blogged about it. Which ones do you think should have been cheaper? I wish I got more side combs though, I prefer them to the flexi ones.

    1. I prefer the side combs too, the flexi combs are a little rough around the teeth. I will have to file them down to avoid snags. I don't know but the metal head band and the wired headband could have been cheaper. I know I have seen a metal headband like that for N150 at Ikeja.

  3. Somebody sha like bye bye like me. lol
    I really like the way you take care of your hair

  4. Waoh! That's quite a lot.

    I don't think I've ever bought this much products at once.

    Nice haul #SilentlyBeefingYou

    1. Please don't beef me:-D I just couldn't help myself. No more buying till October.

  5. Lol Buiti, it's not my fault, I jes luurve my hair!

  6. Hayyy
    You went all out!!

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,
     I hope you are all doing well. I have missed blogging so much and I feel really good that I can now so it more often since my schedule is getting a bit less crowded. I also hope you like the new blog design.
    If you live in Nigeria then you are aware that things are getting out of hand financially. The recession is hitting really hard and it seems no one is immune. Inspite of this I do not want my Fro to suffer so I am working on making a lot of homemade products and utensils to ensure my hair doesn't feel the strain of the harsh economy.
   Today I will be showing you how to make an APPLICATOR bottle from any old plastic bottle you have at home. Why bother you ask? Read my post about different ways to use an Applicator bottle.
      Let's get right into it. Here's what you'll need:

Small plastic bottle with cover
A candle/lighter/gas
A match stick

1. Remove the bottle cover from the bottle. Using the scissors hold the cover firmly and…
