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.

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…
