Hi guys,
     If there's one thing all naturalistas have in common it will be a stash of hair products. There's usually the moisturiser, the sealing oil or butter, the conditioner &/or deep conditioner and the shampoo. For the Bruce Lees of natural hair there'd be alot of other things like henna, bentonite/rhassoul clay, ACV and some other action packed products but you'll agree with me that when we travel we take just the basics- moisturiser,conditioner, oil and shampoo. So what do you do when you have to take a short trip? Go with all your heavy bottles of product,  go with none and leave your strands to the grace of God or improvise? I would improvise. I usually put a little of everything I need in smaller bottles. The bottles are usually random bottles in different sizes and don't usually look so cute in my bag. In answer to a prayer I don't remember praying, I found these bottles at Blenco supermarket Ajah:

Cute or nah? I love them, especially the spray bottle. Here's what I think should be in each bottle:

Nice clean and cute bottles

Aside short trips these bottles will also be great for your day to day hustle. They are small enough to fit into most bags and still leave space for a baby hippo. The spray bottle can fit into most make up bags so you do not have to worry about your fro being dry halfway through the day. If you bump into them at your local supermarket be sure to make at least one pack yours. In other news my fro will be 2 out for my hair update:-)
I used my phone (S5) to type and post this. I hope it comes out well as it will mean I get to blog more!

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Very cute bottles. I don't fly much but I could buy them cos they are tooo cute.

    1. Me too but they are too cute to pass up. Besides they are small enough to fit into your make up bag for daily use.

  2. This is a really great initiative and its cheap too! I'm not a natural hair person but I know it can come in handy especially for my face cleanser that the springy thing came off and I have to hold it up everytime.
    Thanks for sharing this great find nne!

    1. You are right Cassie, they can also work for that purpose. Thanks for stopping by ***

  3. Mehn, I'm in need of these bottles. I made the decision to start taking better care of my natural hair 2weeks ago and its been a struggle. I was looking at my fro just this afternoon and wondering why its so dry. I just spritzed it with one of those amazing spray bottles that contains amazing hair products (in my mind) and went back to #NoTime.

    1. Lol. I can understand the struggle. One thing you must know is that it gets better with time. The more you care for the fro the better it will look. Hang in there love :-)

  4. Hey! I'm new here and I'm going natural. How do I start? Products and how to use them pls. Thanks.

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…


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.

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 …
