Where Have I Been?! - Washday


Hi ladies. It's been a very long while I've put up a post. I know y'all must have been wondering if i'd fallen off the moon...lol!!! I've had impromptu exams over the last month but thank God it's over now and I can concentrate fully on my hair, the blog and Christmas. And about Christmas, 1 year has flown by so fast I feel like I didn't do so much (hairwise) and I keep wondering where all the days went to.
Thanksgiving was over the weekend and though we don't celebrate it here in Nigeria, I have a lot to be thankful for this year.

Post Relaxer Trim + Deep Conditioning on Dry Hair + Protective style


I know I have been slacking with my post for a few months now and I’m here to apologize today. I’ve gotten really lazy because my washday routines are mostly the same. I hope to keep my word and fulfill my blog goals for the year. I’d like to thank all you ladies who constantly check the blog for new posts and leave me encouraging comments. Y’all the real MVP!

Hair Store Review Series – Maramma



Hi Ladies. I’m starting a new series called “Hair Store Review”. It’s basically discovering and reviewing hair stores here in Abuja that sell good hair products. As a hair blogger, one of my biggest problem is finding stores that sell really good hair products and at affordable prices. More often I’ll see a product I like, buy it and then probably not see it again till a long time. Products aren’t really consistent in stores here so I was happy when I discovered this store.

Last Relaxer Update for the Year


Hi Ladies. I’m here with my last relaxer update for the year. Whoop! Whoop!! I prepared my hair prior to this washday like I always do by washing it a week before and moisturizing and sealing often. I relaxed my hair at exactly 20 weeks post relaxer. This relaxer session went smoothly and was better than the others read here and here. Here’s how my relaxer session went;

My One Year Product Stash


Hi ladies. How was your weekend? Do you know the blog will be one year in a month?! *whoop whoop*. There would be a giveaway to celebrate my One year blogversary so watch out!! Have you ever looked at your stash of hair products and wondered if you’re a hair junkie? I guess the answer for most hair bloggers would be a big YES! Well I wonder if I am too sometimes even though my stash isn’t as much as those who have been on their hair journeys longer than I have. Another question I was asked a lot from my #AskMoma twitter conversation was what products were needed to start a healthy hair journey. So I decided to put up a post today on my product stash, why I chose these products, my staples and which ones I have discontinued and will discontinue.

Washday – Knotless Braids


Hi Ladies. How have y’all been? I washed my hair over the weekend after 2 weeks of not washing it. I had to start washing bi-weekly after experiencing breakage from my protein overload. Before I talk about how my washday went, I’d like to say a very BIG thank you to all my readers and fellow hair bloggers for your comments and advice. My hair has stopped breaking now and is in a good place – so good that I installed knotless braids. Lol!

Wash Day – Side Twists!


Hi ladies. How was your weekend? For some weird reason I’ve fallen in love with side twists and how full they make my hair look that I made side twists the whole of last week. Lol! I had an interview yesterday so I did side twists again but with a faux bun. I love the side twist and faux bun especially after I saw it on Keoshia’s blog – Mrsdoingme.

Washday – Curlformers


Hi ladies. Welcome to the beginning of a wonderful and fun-filled weekend. So I took out my crochet braids because I was getting tired (as usual) and my scalp had become really itchy. I of course began to think of a protective style and after reading the curlformer post by Uzo of Don’t Touch the Hair I decided to give curlformers another try. Read about my first curlformers set here. Before installing these beauties I washed my hair and here’s how it went;

Crochet Braids In!!!


Hi ladies. Long time no post! I was reading a post by Berry Dakara on her blog and I felt like she was talking about me. Lol! I haven’t put up a post in while because I’ve been using the same methods for my washdays and didn’t have anything new to show you guys. But I realized that there are more informative posts I can put up apart from my regular washday posts and I was challenged yet again by reading Berry Dakara’s post. Perfect timing Berry!!!

Wash Day – Mid Year Trim


Hello ladies. How’s your hair doing? In my last post, I complained about my hair shedding like crazy and I’ve been trying to find the problem. At first I thought was protein overload which hardly ever happens to me but it wasn’t the problem. Then I thought I may have under processed my hair during my last relaxer session but that wasn’t it either.

Product Review - Hair Steamer


Hi ladies. You’ve probably seen a picture or 2 of me using my new heat cap. I love this heat cap because unlike my other one I can regulate the temperature and my curls from protective styles last longer.

My weekend was busy but awesome. Hope yours was too?! In other news, I’ve started playing Volleyball again *whoop* *whoop*. I used to play this sport a lot in secondary school but stopped when I entered the University and started again in Nysc camp. I’m so glad I’ve revived my love for this sport.

Relaxer Update


Hi ladies. I’m back with my relaxer update. I relaxed my hair last week but I’ve been having writer’s block or should I say lazy block *covers face*. Are there any other bloggers who experience this? Well, I decided to cast away all forms of laziness and put up this post. Btw, the presidential inauguration is going on right now at Eagle’s square Abuja. I’m going to watch it as soon as I’ve put up this post – make sure you do too!

Wash Day – Bantu Knots Again


                                      

Hi ladies. How was your weekend? I hope it was great?! I was a bit down this past weekend but I thank God for restoring my health.  I finally took off my crochet braids which would have been 3 weeks today. As much as I loved this particular hair, I needed to clean my real hair. I decided to try Bantu knots again and see if it would come out better than the last time - read post here.

Feature Friday - Meet Maggie



Hi ladies. I’m introducing a new random post called Feature Friday. Remember I said one of my goals for this year - see post here is that I will try to be more creative and also post random posts about myself? Well, I have a lot of ladies who have been inspired by me to start their hair journeys and I though it a good idea to share their faves, tips and experiences so far with you. So today’s post will be about a dear friend of mine who has transitioned to natural by doing the big chop recently after transitioning for about 10 months. She has always had full hair that I had admired most of my life but thank God for texlaxing now. Lol!

Protective Style - Crochet Braids

             


Hi darlins'. How have you been? I've missed my readers so much. *sniff sniff*. Don't worry I tried hard not to cry. So I've been MIA and it's because I just finished writing some tough exams but I'm grateful to God that it was a huge success and hopefully I'm done with it for good. I was supposed to put up a post last week and then say I'll be gone for a while but that didn't happen.  In my previous post here I said I was going to install crochet braids to help with my stretch. So without further ado, here's your long awaited post...

Product Review - Hairfinity


Hi ladies, how was your weekend? We finally have a president! Congrats Nigerians for taking a stand in what we believe in. Our country will continuously know peace in Jesus name. Amen.  This post is long overdue so please forgive me.
I bought my Hairfinity vitamins sometime in January and was waiting till the first of February to officially start taking the pills but that didn’t happen because I kept procrastinating. I don’t like pills because of the aftermath and would rather take a million injections but I didn’t have a choice with Hairfinity which was why I had to stop procrastinating. Finally on the 5th of February I started taking the pills.

Hi ladies. How was your weekend? I hope we went out on Saturday to cast our votes.

Hopefully I will take part in the next elections.

Wash day – VO5 Haul and First Curlformer Set



Hi ladies. How was your weekend? I hope it was restful cos mine certainly was. I ordered a pack of curlformers and perm rods about 3 weeks ago and finally got them last week. I couldn’t wait to take out my twists and try them because I have heard the amazing stories of how it blends all textures on your head for both natural and relaxed or texlaxed ladies. I’m sure you can tell I was excited especially after all my complaints about not being able to get a style that blends check out the post here.

Side Twist and Tuck

Hi ladies. We've come to the end of another beautiful working week and I hope it was fruitful?! Finally we can stretch our feet, bring out our favorite movie, sit back and relax. Yope its Friday!!!
I promised you ladies that I will put up any styles I try with my twists and I've got one for you already. I had an appointment yesterday and needed to find an appropriate way to style my hair. It has been in a loose up-do all week because I didn’t want to stress my roots and I basically didn’t have anywhere to go or anything to do for that matter.  Anyways, I decided to go simple and chic by doing a side twist with a tuck. I would have done a faux bun but the heat in Abuja at the moment is unbearable and I didn’t want my hair adding to it.
Creating this style was simple, the only thing you need is a bobby pin or pins.
  • I took down my up-do and did a side part.
  • Next, I twisted one side in and then the other and held both sides with one hand. (I was careful to not pull my hair too much).
  • I then tucked the remaining hair left at the back with my free hand and secured with a bobby pin. I only used one pin but you my use as many as you wish.

Voila!!! My simple side twist and tuck.


What new style have you tried out lately?


Have an amazing weekend ladies…

Wash Day - Flexi Rod Set Fail



Hi ladies, how was your weekend? Welcome to a new month! We are MARCHING forward this month to greener pastures in Jesus Name. Amen. My wash day wouldn't have been because I was very busy during the weekend and I almost forgot to wash it yesterday. Immediately I remembered, I jumped off my bed and went to wash my hair. I didn’t care if it took me the whole night I was determined to have a clean hair and a wash day post by today for you my amazing readers.

Wash Day with Twinings Tea



Hiya ladies. I know I've been Mia and you've missed me. I’m so sorry. This past week was very busy for me and the coming week will be worse so please bear with me. Because of how busy I've been, I just washed my hair yesterday night. It was a quick wash day with no hassles or any extra treatment. I try not to go a week without washing my hair because I find it difficult to maintain or try any protective styles.
Here’s how my wash day went;

Easy Breezy Wash Day

Hi ladies. How was your weekend? I missed you and hope you missed me too. My weekend was slow and boring although the year is really fast. I can’t believe we’re in the second week in February. God is awesome!
I washed my hair this past weekend and it was great. Washing and styling my hair after relaxing it is the best thing in the hair kingdom. Because my hair is kinda sleek though it still has texture, it made this wash day simple and easy. I couldn't have been more pleased. Here’s how it went;

Importance of Water

A lot of hair bloggers have over-emphasized the importance of water in our bodies and for the health of our hair too. So I'm also here to do the same. 

I have gotten broadcasts several times on whatsapp and bbm about the importance of water.  I thought it helpful to share this with you today. The American Doctors Association has given out answers for the causes of cancer;

Protective Style

I'm currently 17 weeks post relaxer and I'm still hoping I can stretch to 20 weeks before relaxing though I'm slowly losing my patience!!!

Hi Ladies. Welcome to 2015!!! This is our year of unlimited Favor and Grace. God is taking us to greater heights this year in Jesus Name. Amen.
