DIY// HOW TO MAKE AN APPLICATOR BOTTLE

Hi guys,
     I hope you are all doing well. I have missed blogging so much and I feel really good that I can now so it more often since my schedule is getting a bit less crowded. I also hope you like the new blog design.
    If you live in Nigeria then you are aware that things are getting out of hand financially. The recession is hitting really hard and it seems no one is immune. Inspite of this I do not want my Fro to suffer so I am working on making a lot of homemade products and utensils to ensure my hair doesn't feel the strain of the harsh economy.
   Today I will be showing you how to make an APPLICATOR bottle from any old plastic bottle you have at home. Why bother you ask? Read my post about different ways to use an Applicator bottle.
      Let's get right into it. Here's what you'll need:


Small plastic bottle with cover
A candle/lighter/gas
A match stick
Scissors


METHOD
1. Remove the bottle cover from the bottle. Using the scissors hold the cover firmly and place it on the heat source in my case I am using a tea candle. Please note: do not place it too close to the heat if not it will burn a hole in the cover. You want the cover hot  not melted so keep it at a safe distance for about 10 seconds.


2. As soon as you notice the plastic getting opaque remove it quickly and and insert the match stick right in the middle just like this.


3. Push the match stick through slowly. You'll notice the middle of the cover elongating. Do not push the stick through too much as it might end up being flimsy which will not be ideal.


4. Snip of the top with scissors and it's ready for use!



You can use it to prepoo, shampoo, oil your scalp etc. It really works.




Remember if the cover gets too hot the nozzle will be flimsy. You want just a little heat and stop once you notice the middle of the cover become slightly opaque. I hope this was helpful.

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…
