Benefits Of Amla Powder For Hair

Benefits Of Amla Powder For Hair
December 27, 2016

I have not used Amla powder on its own before. I always end up mixing it with another ayurvedic powder, in this case, it has been henna. But the last time I visited my favorite supplier and saw it sitting quietly on the shelf, I knew it was time to try it alone. How I used it As a result of my bad experience using some Ayurvedic powders alone (remember my…

Hello beautiful people! Thanks to the previous posts done on this platform, we’ve pretty much covered ayurvedic clays and their many benefits for the skin and hair!. Just to jog your memory, Ebunite talked about Rhassoul clay here and I talked about multani mitti here. As you can imagine, mud masking is nothing new.

How I Use Rhassoul Clay

July 27, 2016

Remember my debacle with Nubian Roots Rhassoul Clay? Well, I decided that I wasn’t going to allow it to deter me from the greatness of Rhassoul Clay so I got another one recently.  So, what exactly is it? Rhassoul Clay is the more pricey twin sister of Bentonite Clay. I mean, I can get two packs of Bentonite Clay for the price of one Rhassoul Clay but that’s just by…


Benefits of clay masks for skin

May 22, 2016

Clay masks have become an all-time fave for me. I mostly incorporate them in the TLC (tender-loving care) sessions I occasionally give myself. So far, I have tried multani mitti, amla, rhassoul and bentonite clays for masks and the results have been amazing! Please don’t make me choose a fave! Please bear in mind that although clay masks could be for hair and face, I’m actually referring to the face…


How I use activated charcoal in my routine

March 18, 2016

I recently got my hands on activated charcoal and I couldn’t wait to use it. Of course, I had read up on it previously so I knew what I needed to do. Teeth Whitening This was basically the only reason I got it in the first place. So, I apply activated charcoal with my fingers directly on my teeth and leave it for a few minutes before brushing it off…


All you need to know about activated charcoal

February 18, 2016

I mentioned earlier that activated charcoal was on my wish list this year. Well, I got some from my local pharmacy. I guess it’s time to discuss it. So what is activated charcoal? What makes it different from the regular cooking charcoal? What exactly is it used for? Is it a safer option than the regular charcoal? I will attempt to answer these questions. Without going into scientific definitions, the…


Wash day chronicles: bentonite clay mask

February 13, 2016

I had these really nice bob braids installed in December. The harmattan was out in full force and I couldn’t cope anymore. So, I decided to do the next best thing – bob braids! During the course of last year, I noticed that I disliked long extensions. Anything beyond my shoulders is a no-no which means that this year, my protective styles will be all bob everything! Unfortunately, the life-span…


Washday chronicles by Ebun: henna gloss

January 10, 2016

As a henna head, I’ve gone from doing total strengthening henna treatments every month to doing it every six weeks. Imagine my surprise when I got a calendar notification on my last henna for the year. Yo! I thought that was six weeks ago? I had clearly miscalculated and had to decide whether or not to commit to a 6-hour treatment. Not exactly. I remembered that Glory on my Instagram posted something…


Ebun’s clay stash

December 2, 2015

I was going through my hair stash and I noticed how my clays take up a significant part of it so I decided to dedicate a post to them. Clays are basically multipurpose products. On days when you simply can’t be bothered to choose between a protein DC or a moisture DC, just whip up a few spoons of clay and you’re good to go. Coincidentally, I’ve been using clays…


Ebun’s ayurvedic wash day

September 7, 2015

I finally took down my bob braids after about five weeks. I initially planned to keep it for six weeks but for some reasons, I couldn’t. Anyways, I already had a mud wash in mind especially since I had just gotten some ayurvedic powders and I was itching to use them. Plus, I didn’t have the time to go the whole nine yards. So, here’s what I used: – 3…
