OOTD - PINK AND BLACK COMBO

No comments:





          So it's the end of my birthday month ,and i really hate to see the love month go by so quickly (*sobbing*)..., I guess its because its the month with the shortest number of days,but I'm glad  and thankful that i got to celebrate it with my family. Today's post is about
bold colours and ,i just wanted to do this quick post on it.
   If you've been reading and following my outfit posts here on the blog , you will observe that pink and black are one of my favourite colour combinations especially black , although i tried not to go all black so i picked a nude colour for my shoes this time.
  In this picture i have just one jewelry on which is the black hoop earrings with stones on them and  one accessory- my wrist watch , and a faux snake-skin over sized clutch, i just wanted to keep it nice and simple. Make up and hair was D.I.Y as usual...lol, Below are the rest of the pictures.













































































                Thanks for stopping by my blog and Hope you guys have a lovely weekend and a happy new month tomorrow.

TAKING VITAMIN D TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS

No comments:






           As much as i love experimenting and trying out new products for hair skin and everything else , i am also a firm believer in vitamins and nutrients that are derived from natural things around me, but what do you do when some of them are out of reach or they are simply not totally safe for you to use,that is the case of the Vitamin D which is derived from sunlight. I am not going to bore you with all the scientific jargon or the

    As you know I'm still on my relaxer stretch and still researching the best ways to keep the new growth healthy as well as trying to prevent shedding and breakage during this stretch . By march i will be 3 months into my stretch and with the help of  supplements ,good hair care products and general hair care maintenance i think my relaxer stretch is coming on pretty well,so much so that i may decide to stretch much longer than i used to,probably up until May this year.
      If you've also been following my blog on my stretch you will realise that breakage and shedding is something i have also been writing about a lot .For a lot of people who are actually transitioning to natural hair ,the hot oil treatment is like a life saver when you're worried about losing some of your hair after washing your hair .  In this post i will be sharing a few tips on how to to maximise

APPARELS AS A MOTIVATION FOR WEIGHT-LOSS

No comments:









       Do you ever set any weight loss goals for yourself by buying a dress 1 ,2, or even 3 sizes smaller than your present size, hang it up somewhere at home where it's the first thing you see each time you get dressed for the day and then tell yourself  ''i must fit into this dress in 2 months time" ? Well that was one of the things that motivated me last year.

AFRICA'S BEST CHOLESTEROL AND TEA TREE OIL CONDITIONER - A DUAL PURPOSE CONDITIONER

No comments:


    You might wonder what cholesterol has got to do with hair products since it is mainly found in the body as lipids,i had researched about this some time ago and discovered that even though cholesterol does have a high amount of fat it also has proteins in it as well but in very little quantity,and we all know that hair strands are mainly proteins and lipids but more of  proteins. Cholesterol is very important in a hair care regimen not just for its  
protein content but the lipids in cholesterol help protect and treat dry damaged hair when they come in contact with the hair fibres.
   Cholesterol does have certain functions in the body but i would not advice that you go looking for food supplements that are high in cholesterol just because you intend to treat dry , brittle and damaged hair from within,this is because high level of cholesterol in the body is also dangerous to one's health.
   Now back to its importance in hair care and why i opted for this particular brand. Research has shown that vitamin D can be used to prevent hair loss or shedding as the case may be,but do you know that cholesterol converts sunshine to Vitamin D,well if you didn't know ,now you do and this is one of the reasons why i have  been using this product on my hair for about two weeks now.If you live in a hot and sunny region like i do then this will be a plus for you or rather for your hair.




         I was sold on this brand just for the fact that it has really great ingredients in it,like the tea tree oil which also helps with shedding, in the past i would get some tea bags and brew a large pitcher for my tea rinse ,but to be honest ,it made me wash my bath every single day because of the residue left behind in the bath tub
 This product is non greasy and doesn't weigh down my hair because the consistency is not heavy either, and the best part is that it's actually a dual purpose conditioner ,meaning that you can use it as a leave -in conditioner for when styling your hair or you can use it as a rinse-out conditioner for after shampoo when washing your hair,I use it for both.



      





          For the rinse-out ,I leave it on with a heat cap for at least 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing out, and during the day i apply it to my ends which  tends to get really dry,and i have to say as soon as i apply this product in the mornings and style my hair in a tucked in pony tail to protect my ends , by the end of the day when I'm ready for bed ,the ends of my hair are still soft and silky,This was what i noticed with this conditioner. I still moisturise and seal my hair from time to time ,but for those days when they get really dry , I use this.
     I would recommend this product for all hair textures (natural,relaxed,texlaxed) because it will do the same thing , and more especially for a natural hair ,it will help relieve hard to detangle areas when combing and also because it is water based. Its a large, plastic, 15 ounce jar and costs about #650 (six hundred and fifty naira ), which is in the range of about $3 or $4.
   Would like to know your thoughts on this particular product or any hair product with Cholesterol that you have used.Sorry for the lengthy review and thanks for taking the time to read....xo
