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. 

N1130

I saw about 2 brands of Coconut oil. I used the Parachute brand last month and I really like it, but I was open to trying a new brand. I found this one that looked semi-solid and I immediately grabbed it.

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.



N730

I haven't had the time to whip up any DIY creations so they are still unopened but I'm all out of whipped Shea butter so I might have to bring out the food processor tonight.



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

  1. I had a bottle of the same brand of Almond oil. Got it at Next Cash & Carry in Abuja. Please keep us posted on how your hair fares with the oil? I was really excited when I found it, but was disappointed afterwards as it left me with nothing to remember.

    1. I won't be suprised if I am underwhelmed, as it was ridiculously cheap. Will do a review when I get around to using it.

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.

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:

CHEAP TRICKS // HEAT BASED DEEP CONDITIONING WITHOUT A STEAMER/DRYER

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…
