DIY// HOW TO MAKE A CUTE HEADBAND WITH AN OLD SHIRT.

Hi there,
    The title is a little misleading I must confess. It wasn't an old shirt. I have had it for about 2 years (that's not old to me) and I really liked it. It was really pretty with 3 roses on the left shoulder and a belt which gave it that baby-doll-dress look.


Isnt she lovely?
Things were going fine with us until one fateful day while I was ironing. My mind drifted and before I could say "kai iron!" the shirt was ruined. Just like that! I tried to remedy the situation by moving the roses from the shoulder to the burnt spot as you can see in the photo above but after a few wears I saw this:

The hole was expanding.
I had two options: First was to throw the whole shirt away and second was to use it for something useful. After thinking for a while the answer came to me. The shirt had a belt and 3 roses, perfect for a cute headband. So here's what I did:

I cut out the roses and removed the belt.

Then I carefully sewed the roses on the belt and it was ready to use.
 Here I am rocking my new headband in three ways:


With my uncombed fro.
 
With my messy afro puff


With my twisted bang and bun do.
 

You could do the same if you have any ruined clothes. You can also make the roses yourself if your ruined clothing doesn't have any. With just a little imagination you can create something truly beautiful for your fro.

Thanks for stopping by...

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.

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…
