Product review: Ecostyler & Ruoshan olive oil gel

March 17, 2016

In my stash I have two kinds of hair gel, the Eco styler gel which I bought because of the online raves, and the Olive Oil gel which I bought just because I wanted to try something new. The Ecostyler gel  works really well for twist-outs, high puffs, edge control (with a good brush, the edge will be sleek) and any other protective style you might want to try. However,…

Product review: VO5 2in1 moisturizing shampoo & conditioner

March 14, 2016

VO5 is a staple for me, the very first brand I bought when I started my hair journey in 2014. I found a new kind – the conditioner and shampoo in one. I was trying to save money and grabbed this immediately I saw this on the shelf. Verdict: I hate this product. It leaves me hair dry and tooooooo clean. Too much sulphate in this product, even my palms feel…

Product review: Argan oil hydrating hair masque

March 2, 2016

When a hair blogger tells you how soft a product made her hair, it makes you literally dash out of your door to the nearest supermarket to try out these products…sometimes it works for you, other times it’s a disaster. This product has been on my shelf for months now and I told you I don’t have a strict regimen…I just reach for this conditioner when I need to deep-condition…

Since my big chop…

August 14, 2015

It’s been 5 months now since I did the big chop. I love my twa (teeny weeny afro) and feel so proud to wear it out. During my CDS (Community Development Service), I met another natural haired sister and it was fun talking about hair care in a totally random location where it seemed no one has an idea about good hair care.  I’ve made some new friends that with…

JBCO HAIR POMADE

August 13, 2015

The JBCO Pomade is one of the frequently sought after ones! I have a client that has issues growing out her edges. I recommended this product because castor oil was on its ingredient list. So far I’m seeing good results. She’s serving here with me (NYSC) and I’ve become her hair consultant. *winks* It does not contain petrolatum or mineral oil, a blend of natural oils  that work well for…

Product review: AHAVA EXFOILATING CLEANSING GEL

December 5, 2014

This product was given to me by my brother. I don’t know how he got it and why but I had to try it. This AHAVA cleanser is for men, at least that’s what is written on the packaging  of the product. It contains Active dead sea minerals, a Micro peeling cleansing gel that energizes and revitalizes your complexion, leaving smoother clearer and fresher skin. DIRECTION: Gently massage onto wet face….
