MY CASABELLA EXPERIENCE


Hi guys,
  I hope you had a pleasant week,  I know I did :-) A while ago I read Kemi Lewis' ( of KL'S NATURALS) blogpost about a temporary spray-on hair colour she had gotten from Casabella at the Palms shopping mall.  Casabella is a beauty shop and they sell a wide range of hair products from Giovanni, Cantu, Shea Moisture and a number of other big natural hair brands.  I loved the results she got using the spray so I had it in mind to pick up a bottle from Casabella whenever I was at the Palms. Turns out I didnt have to go that far. So there I was minding my own business on the paved roads of Ikota shopping mall when I looked up and there it was:



To say I was excited is putting it mildly. I went in sharply and proceeded to feed my eyes. They had a fairly wide range of stuff from wigs to make up, creams, brushes and finally HAIR PRODUCTS!!! I was spoilt for choice. I don't think I have mentioned it here before but I really need to over haul my staple products. My hair is so over Cantu Shea butter leave in and I'm in the market for a new deep conditioner as well. After a loooong while of picking and dropping I finally settled for:




Keracare Leave in Conditioner. N3300
Tresseme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner N2990

Hig beams Intense Temporary hair colour N1300

 I even got a Casabella loyalty card:



 The shop assistant was really helpful though I didn't get her name, pity. I have started using the products so you can expect reviews in a couple of weeks. So tell me have you bought any new products lately??

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. Please post pictures of you hair when you use the temp hair color. I might just follow suit as I've gotten bored with my black hair.

  5. Hello Ma'am, how are you and the new bundle doing?

    I'm currently shopping/looking for a good leave in conditioner for my hair, something that's not too expensive and where i can get it. I also wont mind referrals on good shampoo and conditioner too.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hello sunshine, we are good thanks for asking. I hope you are too :-) I'm currently looking for a new leave-in to replace my staple Cantu Shea butter leave-in so I might not be able to recommend one for you right now as I'm still experimenting. However you could browse olori.com to see all the leave-ins they stock and see if you'll find one you think your hair will like. For conditioners I would recommend Vo5 moisturising conditioner.Its about N450 and it does the job. There are different types of Vo5 conditioners, so be sure you read the label carefully and pick the moisturising one. I use kids organics shampoo (the purple one). It doesn't dry out my hair so I kind off like it. It's N900. I hope this helps :-)

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…
