HAIR UPDATE- 15 MONTHS POST BC

Hi guys,
    In my last post I told you I was super excited about this update. The reason is simple - my hair grew!!! I love doing length checks because they make me know that my regimen is working and my hair appreciates every kiss and hug I throw its way. Without further ado, here are my 15 months post BC pictures.








If you compare these pictures with the ones from my last update you'll notice that I retained quite a bit of length. I think I had about 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" of growth in most places. Now I can do a low pony tail ;-)

For the first time in ages I felt like using a flat iron to straighten my hair so I could really see how long it has grown, but my fear of heat damage held me back. I do not want to lose even 1 single curl so I had to hold myself back. In my next length check I will use a tape measure just to know in terms of inches what my progress is. This month's length check made me really happy because it feels good to see how your efforts are paying off, I …

OIL HUNTING AT MEGA PLAZA

Hi guys,
    It has been a weird couple of weeks so kindly pardon my long silence. I went to Mega Plaza in VI for a spot of shopping about three weeks ago and as usual I went to check out the oil stand. I found such a wide array of oils that it felt like I was in oil heaven. There were more than 6 brands of Olive oil and as usual I chose the most mysterious looking one with a super sexy bottle. 


N570

I also found an oil I have had on my to-buy list for a while - Sweet Almond Oil. Now Foods brand has it for about N4500 and I was planning to get it from Olori but then I ran into this brand. I was a little worried because it is a lot (A WHOLE LOT!!!) cheaper but I'll try it first and see if its good enough for my hair and skin.



In other news it is length check time!!!! I am super excited, Can you guess why? Expect a hair update next! ;-)

HOW TO END A WASH AND GO DAY SUCCESSFULLY!

Hi guys,
A synonym is a word with the same or similar meaning of another word. Words that are synonyms are said to be synonymous, and the state of being a synonym is called synonymy. For example the synonyms for a Wash and Go are:
Tangles
Single Strand Knots
Multiple Strand Knots etc.

Sorry for the half baked English lesson ;-) but if you are a natural I'm sure you might agree with the above. Nothing looks nicer than a well oiled 'Fro but after rocking one I end up cursing myself when I am trying to get rid of the Single Strand knots that have congregated on my head at the end of the day. I avoided Wash and Gos for a while as I suggested in this post I did about dealing with Single strand knots but sometimes I miss my fro and I just have to let it out. Thankfully I finally found a way to end my Wash and Go days with little or no tangles.
