Hello lovelies,
How was your weekend? Mine was quite good, it was picture filled. I am very excited about this post because it is a NEW IN post, I love clothes, who doesn’t? I  thrifted recently and I thought I’d share what I bought with you y’all.

This shampoo is was not  thrifted, but its New in, I recently noticed that my scalp is so dry and itchy, so I bought this Selsun blue shampoo, I have used it once, I noticed significant improvements after one use, but it is too early to concluded. I will be doing a review on this shampoo as soon as I am convinced it worked for me. The shampoo cost #980

WASH DAY ROUTINE #2

 

 

Happy New year lovelies!!

Present Jam- Problem by REKADO BANK

I recently washed and deep conditioned my hair, I made some mistakes that helped me gather some tips, so I thought I’d share them with you guyss.

Hi, how have you been??
I washed my hair the DUDU OSUN soap, I have a post where I talked about the pros and cons of using the soap as a shampoo if you haven’t seen it yet click here and enjoy..
I had never made a DIY conditioner with fruits or any edibles, so I thought I’d give it a shot, I opted for the banana mix because banana is known to soften the hair and allow for easy manageability. Below are the things I used  for the deep conditioner and their benefits.

1. Banana- Softenes the hair, allow easy management by loosening curls.
2. Egg(s)- For healthier hair also gives the hair shine also assist growth.
3. Coconut oil- For moisture (olive oil can be used instead).
4. Honey- For hair growth, prevents lost of moisture and softens the hair.
5. Plastic caps- To trap in heat.
6. Knee length socks- To prevent dripping of the mix down your neck

Step 1.
Blend the bananas till it reaches a fine consistency, I didn’t blend the bananas I cut and mashed them that was the first mistake I made.
Step 2.
Break in egg(s) and blend well. I used on egg, depending on preference your can use two. If you don’t like the smell of eggs use just egg white. The second mistake I made was putting in yolk, I was nauseated half the time.
Step 3.
Measure into the mix 4 tablespoons of honey and coconut oil and blend for few seconds.
Step 4.
Sieve the mixture, using a fine sieve. This is very important. You don’t want to have banana caught in your hair, it is a very painful experience. I was in the shower for over 2 hours pickiing out Banana bits out of my hair.

After making the condioner, I finger detangled on wet hair (to reduce breakage) and I washed my hair in sections. My hair wash squeaky clean then I applied the conditioner to the washed sections. I wore 2 plastic caps to trap moisture then I tied a knee length sock round my head. I left the conditioner on for an hour (nauseated by the smell of the egg)
Then I washed it out, I then put my hair in African threading (not fully cocooned) to stretch my hair, you can style as preferred after washing the conditioner out, make sure you use a cream base products to moisturize your hair while styling, I usually use my Shea butter mix.

It shouldn't look like this, it should be smooth, no lumps

After I took down the threading the next day, I hair felt so soft, it was very easy to style it. I wore my hair out for over 8 hours and it was still very soft and shrinkage was very minimal.

TRIALS OF A SALON

Present Jam: No forget by ADEKUNLE GOLD and SIMI

Heyyyyy,
Howdy?? I recently had my hair done (maybe not too recently). Have you ever had your hair done so badly, that you go home and almost cry…or just cry either from how ugly it looks or how much it hurts? Well, I have, I have had my hair done that I cried on my way home like 10 times or more. Especially when I use so much money to make an ugly hair, sigh… so yeah, I have experience with badly done hair. You might be wondering why I allow this happen to me more than once, well, I trust the hairstylist too much, that I never ask questions looool. Actually, I used to be too timid to speak up… but no more!
You know how you walk into a salon and pick a style, and the hair stylist goes all ‘aunty I can make the style’ but ends up doing something totally different and ugly. It can be a total balls buster. I have combined some tips to avoid going through badly done hair.

 PAY ATTENTION

Salons can be very distracting, so many gist flying around, don’t be too distracted, pay attention to what is the stylist is doing on your head, that way you can notice any fault as soon as possible.

QUESTION THE STYLIST

I used to be too shy to do this, I don’t know why. See, you are paying for the service so ask as many questions as possible, don’t die in silence! Complain when the hair hurts, because if you don’t, you will pay severely for it at night.

ASK TO SEE A MIRROR

If you are not already facing the mirror, ask to see a mirror, this will save you time as you can detect a fault as soon as possible, rather than after the hair is done. Some hairstylist for some reason will be reluctant to give you a mirror, abeg emphasis, otherwise, get up and leave.

STYLE YOUR HAIR

You should style the hair how you like it to  see if it fits, rather than having the hairstylist do it his or her way, as you might have different perspective (most hairstylist I have visited, tends to comb or brush my hair flat, but I like big hair). I will normally pick a comb or brush and style as preferred when I have weaves on and when I have braids, I pack it or style it as desired.

FINISHING TOUCHES

They want you to leave as soon as possible, don’t be in a rush, look at a mirror to detect any errors, and be at alert, this is when they tend to put too much oil or so… decline fast and vehemently if you don’t want this.

I hope these tips helped you, till the next blog post . xx
