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!!!

PRODUCT REVIEW : SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

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.

PRODUCT REVIEW // ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER

Hi guys,                                                                                                                                                      I'm here with another review. 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…
