Hi loves! Guess who reached the 5th year mark of being in a healthy hair journey? Me! *throws confetti!* Click on the Hair Progress pictures bar above to see my progress over the years before i dyed my hair.

Well for me its not a journey anymore, you know when you're journeying you have a destination and that destination for us is our haircare goals. Once we get to the goal/destination we stop journeying, we settle and decide to carve a niche for ourselves there.

I'm back, Introducing my First Hair care Product - Extreme Hair Growth Elixir

My loves, Will I ever apologise enough for leaving you guys without a word? I feel someone is reading this and saying "oh well she posted today, wonder what she's been up to that has kept her away!" (Hides face).

I have been trying to get the balance once again. What balance? The experience of having a setback together with colouring my hair threw my hair totally off balance. I'm glad I'm getting back on my fit now! Yes I have actually been up to something and it was triggered by the quest to get my hair back to the length and fullness it had just last year 2017.

Hey loves in this post I will be answering some questions that I've gotten from ladies about my hair in this new state - coloured state.

Now even though some of these questions sound silly to me it actually bothers some ladies and I think these questions are as a result of the general 'fear of colouring' relaxed hair. Again it could be as a result of some myths hovering in our minds and passed down from generation to generation. Oh well, let's get right into debunking those myths.

1. Its said that its bad to colour your hair why did you colour it?

I dyed my hair a second time!

Hey loves! Hope you're good? This is a really long post and I'm really sorry about that I hope you have the patience to read it.

 So ladies a couple of things happened between my last post and now. I washed my hair about 2 weeks after dying it and all of the colour came out completely. Fast forward a couple of washes after and there was no colour on my hair except the one left after the peroxide bleaching. I wanted to redye my hair but I thought it may cause damage to dye the hair like back to back so I decided I'd just leave it till after the end of my relaxer stretch.

I relaxed my hair 2weeks ago using ORS relaxer (the sachet type) and while I got my relaxer a also got the box of dye. This time I got the Creme of Nature Exotic shine colour in Intensive red 7.6.

From Black to Red; my hair dye experience

From black to...
Red. Dark and lovely - Vivacious Red

Hey loves! Happy New year to you all. Following my last post I went ahead and did what I have always wanted to do - dye my hair.

I was pretty sure the dye won't take well whether I used a semi permanent dye or a permanent one because my hair is really dark. There was no other way I could think of than to bleach my hair to strip some of the colour off.

I'm transitioning to another phase of healthy hair care!

"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."

[Warning: its a really long post, have patience and read till the end. This is my last post for 2017]

I saw the quote above while browsing for motivational quotes for a friend. When I saw this I noticed it could relate to me too. Here's how - I started my haircare journey in october 2013 and since then I've grown my hair from neck/shoulder length to midback length. I have been at mid back length for 6months (since June 2017)

Relaxer update & End of year length check

Hey loves! Complements of the season! Happy harmattan to my Nigerian readers! Lol. How's the harmattan treating you? There's just a lot of write ups about your hair and the harmattan season, enough to not leave you stranded so if your hair still feels dry like straw, you're not doing something right. Best still, wear a wig or do a protective style so you don't damage your hair by putting your hands in it every single day. I also did a post about the how to curb dryness in the harmattan so you can check it out here.
