HOW TO MAKE A FLORAL HEADBAND

 
 
 

Hi guys,
   I am back and hopefully I will be better than before. Its a new year with new possibilities and I hope we all get to do our very best this year. As you all know I LURVE DIY!! If I could, I would change my middle name to DIY (although it would sound weird but who cares??? Lol) So the other day I was messing around with some stuff and I decided to create this super cute floral headband that I love so much. Here's how to make yours :
 
You'll Need

I used a Nice sturdy Bra strap for this. Naughty me!!
 
Let's begin 

Remove the flowers from the stems and if you wish to add leaves, remove them also.

Arrange the flowers and leaves how you would like them to appear on the headband.

Sew the first flower/leave on your line up on the head band. Ensure your stiches are barely visible on the flower/leave. If you are using regular elastic for this its best to sew the ends together before you start stitching on the flowers/leaves. Since I used a Bra strap that has closures at the end I decided to leave it open.

 

Now continue taking either a flower or a leave from your line up and sewing them as close together as possible. your rhythm should be leave/flower/leave/flower/leave and so on.

 
A quick Tip 

To ensure the flowers and leaves don't come apart I stitched them together first before sewing them on to the band. You see that black thread at the base of the flower? That's what holds the flower together.
 

Since I used an open strap with closures I had to sew the flowers on both sides of the straps while making sure the flowers/leaves at each end hide the straps from sight.

 
I stitched the flower right on top of the strap to hide it from view. If you are using a sealed head band or elastic, you don't have to do this. Just sew them right on till you get to the last flower/leave.
 
 
As you can see, the closures are hidden from sight with a leave on the left and a flower on the right to keep the rhythm going. Next I continued stitching leaves and flowers from my line up till they finished.
 
 
 
ALL DONE!!!

  
For those who use a sealed headband like these:




 All you need to do is comb out your fro and slip it on. If you wanna live on the edge like me and use a bra strap,  just comb out your fro and place the strap on your head from back to front, making sure the flowers are in front and snap the closures together. Voila your very own headband!!! I hope you enjoy making yours like I did mine.

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 …
