There are times when you’re too exhausted to wash your hair to talk more of moisturizing. These are the times you need to incorporate some methods to help retain moisture for a longer period. 1. The LOC/LOCO  (LIQUID-OIL-CREAM or LIQUID-OIL-CREAM-OIL) method. Whichever one you choose, you’re guaranteed to retain moisture for a couple of days. 2. More moisture-intensE deep conditioning. This cannot be overemphasised. It especially helps to retain moisture…

How to get rid of the itchiness caused by hair extensions

March 23, 2015

Image source   Ever wondered what causes your hair to itch when it’s in hair extensions? It’s called Alkaline Lye. Most, if not all synthetic extensions have been coated with an Alkaline lye.

Before I did that, I had been visiting YouTube a lot lately mostly because I’d been searching for the perfect crochet braiding tutorial. I can’t really say that I’ve gotten what I want but a few of them have been more than helpful and I thought I should share. For those of you that have been looking for…


How I maintain my marley twists

March 21, 2015

So I’m back! A few weeks ago, I installed some marley twists – my first protective style for the year. The idea was to install it through crochet braiding and rock for 6 weeks. Problem was, crochet braiding required more extensions which means more full heavy hair – which I’m not a fan of – and I wasn’t having any of that especially with the unbearable heat. Eventually, instead of…

How to take care of coloured natural hair

February 15, 2015

I’ve chemically colored my hair twice now with permanent dyes. Even though I didn’t get the result I wanted, the dyes have left significant highlights on my hair. Plus, my henna/hibiscus treatments never fail to redden my hair. Anyway, a lot of naturals still have evasions for color generally. And I’m like why would you deprive yourself of such beauty? Seriously, except your hair is jet black, I don’t see…

December 2014 Length Check {eBunite}

January 19, 2015

I just clocked one year of my natural hair journey a few weeks ago and it was only right to do a length check. At the beginning of 2014, I decided to retain as much length as I possibly could which led to a #NoCombChallenge. I don’t know where I got the funny idea that combing natural hair prevents growth but somehow I stuck to it all through. But by the…
