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. 


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.


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.


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.

  2. Been looking for coconut oil. And this price is really great! Would keep an eye out for it.


    1. You can get it from any big supermarket. The Indian food section always has coconut oil ;-)

  3. This hunt tho lolol.. glad you finally saw one

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…
