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.

Harmattan and Hair: How I curb dryness

So my loves, ive been away from the blog so long and I've missed you all.

Hi loves! Thanks a lot to the lovely ladies that compliment my work, gave me a follow and a few who ordered. From now though I will focus more on wigs as this is where most of the attention of my buyers is focused on.

Relaxer update: Mid year length check

Hello loves! I'm back but with a relaxer update. I know I said in my last post that I was going to relax my hair at 12 weeks post but a little over 11weeks post and I just couldn't wait any longer! Lol.

I followed my usual relaxer procedures,  I always texlax my hair not relax bone straight. This time I used ORS No-lye relaxer (box type).

Here's a pic of my wet hair after relaxing:

Almost time for a fresh relaxer?! The past weeks in review

Hey loves! I was just checking my pictures and i decided to check the details of my last relaxer update picture for the date. Counted till this week and it was exactly 11 weeks! Its only a week to relaxer day! Ahdonbilivit! (This year i choose to I texlax my hair not more than every 12 weeks).

Now this is by far the fastest relaxer stretch I ever had. Its also the smoothest, washdays were really few and easy breezy. My protective styling game was also on point. I also did my regular scalp massages with a mix of Jojoba oil + coconut oil + peppermint oil twice weekly.

My washdays were just 4 and comb free too. Because I kept track of this relaxer stretch with pictures I can sum it up as;

Edge control and taking care of your edges

I never really talk about the edge control that i use so today i will tell you all about it and also how to keep your edges intact while using edge control. I personally do not have baby hairs to lay down but i improvise! Lol. Why not? If not. It looks good on me so i do it for style. 

I began to lay my edges down last year and i have been loving the look. I've used Eco Styler olive oil styling gel (i have run out of this one) and Eco Styler Argan oil Max Hold gel (currently in use).

Comb Free Washday & Trying out some good stuff! (product reviews inclusive)

Hi loves, hope you had a blessed week?  I relaxed my hair two weeks ago at 12 weeks post relaxer. I didnt write a post on it because i really didnt do much. Just my normal relaxer routine and length check wasnt for this relaxer day. I'm trying to reduce my flat ironing to twice a year so length checks will also be twice a year.

Wet pony tail, after rising out DC on Relaxer day. I Relaxed with ORS No-lye relaxer kit.

Dry, moisturised double pony tail (the day after relaxing).

For this washday i used entirely new products from start to finish and i love everyone of them. I had you in mind and so i thought, why not write a washday post to share my awesome washday experience.

Neutrogena triple moisture DC, ORS hair Mayonnaise, As I Am so much moisture and As I Am Cleansing pudding.

How I style my hair: Crotchet Afro Protective hairstyle

Hey loves! wash day was yesterday but i decided not to put up a washday post as i followed thesame washday routine of my previous washday post and used thesame products too. Here's a pic of my hair after blow drying.

During the weekend i went for shopping for some new clothes and i figured i add something really new too. Something i have NEVER done and that is a Crotchet Protective hairstyle. I got a really kinky crotchet hair as i would love to see how i look in a really big afro, lol.

2016 Hair Goals Review & Only 3 Goals for 2017?!

Remember how i felt when i was seconds into 2016?  Remember me saying i didnt know what to hope or wish for ? How i thought 2016 would hold alot of surprises for me ?

 Well it was indeed an Unpredictable year. The year started off well but getting to the middle of the year alot of things started happening and it caused me to be away from blogging for months till the end of the year. Guess what? I smiled on entering 2017. I even went out with my friends. I felt joy like I'm about to have a good year. I'm so thankful to God for all that happened the previous year. It happened to shapen me and prepare me for the blessings i believe are coming my way this year.

Here's a review of my goals for 2016.

Wash day: A wasn n go kind of Welcome !

Happy New Year loves ! Welcome to 2017!!!  Thank God for keeping us alive and well to see another amazing year ! Hope you and your Families had a wonderful Celebration ?

Following my last post i wore my wig all through the Christmas and New Year Celebrations because i travelled with my family to Anambra state and the harmattan there is quite strong.  I couldnt resist slapping on my wig. I am back now and back to my normal routine and washday happened today.

It was a really straight forward washday. I followed my usual steps but only that i did a wash n go.
