LOST BUT FOUND AND A MINI TOOL HAUL

Hi Guys,
     I am really sorry I have been away so long. I have been working on a project that leaves me extremely exhausted/drained/fatigued at the end of each day so blogging has not been on my to-do list for a while. I am back now and hopefully I wont be gone for long again.
  All has been well with my hair although I have been neglecting it badly. I am in desperate need of a trim but I have been too busy to do it myself and the thought of someone else doing it gives me nightmares. I don't want to end up with a mini big chop after all my hard work and prayers lol. I have also abandoned hot oil treatments, prepooing and weekly deep conditioning...hmmm I smell a mane revolt coming up soon.
  In other news,I got my sister in Texas to get me 3 hair tools I have been dying to have. Here they are in order of happifyingness (loooool):

Wig Clips ;-)

 
I haven't installed a weave in a looong time. I shudder at the thought of a giant needle poking holes in my fragile fro so I shunned weaves for wigs and I have been enjoying them so far. But sometimes I see a really cool weave and be like ''I wish I could get that on my head without all stress and breakage". Well these clips make installing a weave super simple, fast and needle free. I can't wait to show you how I use them.

Latch hook crochet pin


 I absolutely adore crochet braids. Since I learnt how to do them I have been using a bobby pin for installation. But with these hooks, crochet-life's about to get real ;-) These hooks make it a whole lot easier and faster to install silkier textures of extensions  unlike the bobby pin which I could only use with  Marley braiding hair.
 
Afro Pik
 

 I fell in love with this comb after watching India of Mynaturalsistas (my favourite vloggers in the world) talk about it in her favourite products video. It is used to pick out fros and to lift up roots to give a fuller look to natural protective styles. Say a loud yay for a big a$$ fro coming your way soon!
 
                                                 BONUS
Bobby pins   
She threw in these regular bobby pins and I really appreciate them because the ones I buy here have a way of getting rusted. Don't ask me how...
 

Ouchless bands
As a sign of repentance I got these black hairbands form Mr Price Surulere for N500. I can finally give rubber bands a rest :-)
 
 That's it for my comeback post. I have some product reviews to do and a hair update(?) but I think I'll just stick with the reviews because my hair might disgrace me after all the weeks of neglect I blessed it with.

Thanks for stopping by...

  4. Latch hooks so much easier I agree. The first time I tried crochet I used bobby pins n just knew I couldn't manage. I rushed and ordered latch hooks mbok. Nothing grand but they get d job done and in record time too.
    Recently I've been considering wigs. I love yarn twists cos it helps my hair stay moisturised but I'm a bit bored now so will be heading to the afro stores in search of wigs. Maybe even make one or two myself...if gorgeousness would agree to be my head mannequin!!!

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…

APHOGEE 2 STEP PROTEIN TREATMENT REVIEW

Hi guys,
   I don't know if I have mentioned it before but I have been shedding like crazy for months. I don't know how I still have any hair left on my head. My hair is also breaking and doesn't seem to retain moisture as much as it used to. After a really terrible day of detangling( I use a wide tooth comb now) and I knew I had to get help. I have seen quite a few Instagram testimonials on the Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment so I decided to try it out. Its a hard protein treatment that promises to stop breakage and shedding. I read a few reviews online first then I got right into it.










     STEP ONE: PREPARATION
I thoroughly detangled my hair. I did this because the treatment makes hair very hard so to prevent severe tangling and breakage during the process its best to detangle first.Shampooed with the ORS creamy Aloe shampoo. Its best to shampoo the hair before applying a protein treatment to get the best results.Sectioned my hair into 4 twists to make my hair easier …
