AWESOME FINDS// 4 PACK TRAVELLING BOTTLES

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:

N450
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 soon...watch out for my hair update:-)
PS
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. 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!

  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 work...lol #NoTime.

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…
