Kinky to Straight and Back

Two Sundays ago, I straightened my hair. Just like that, because I felt like it.

I had 8AM mass so I woke up at 5:30 to handle my bidness. It was already raining before I started at 6am, yet- like the stubborn grasshopper that I am, I committed to two hours of straightening, knowing that the slightest rain would most definitely revert all my hardwork. Commonsense eludes me sometimes.

So. The day before, I decided that Sunday would be the day I brought out my flat iron. I washed and deep conditioned my hair properly on Saturday, moisturised and sealed before chunky twisting my hair. I used the Carol’s Daughter Chocolat Blow Dry Cream as my heat protectant, and the instructions say to apply to damp hair. Later at night, I undid the chunky twists, put in the Blow Dry Cream and retwisted.

Safely straightening natural hair is one of the things I research every now and then. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen like 20 videos on the subject and read soooo many blog posts. Every girl has her own method, and because of the fear of heat damage, some straightening regimens I’ve seen can make you a little weak. Having applied my heat protectant on Saturday, all I did on Sunday morning was straighten. I didn’t blow dry first, I simply used a flat iron on still damp hair, that’s all.

Beloveds, I went to church late, and the two hours spent on my hair were not enough. The second hour was quite rushed.

Product Review: Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Mask

‘Ello baes!

It’s been a while since I did a product review, I have quite a few pending but I’ll get to writing them soon enough.

Indeed, all that glitters is not gold but in this world of hair products, I like to take my chances. I’m a big big sucker for attractive packaging and design. Carol’s Daughter products can be on the pricey end. But they LOOK like they’re worth it. After admiring them for a long time from afar, I finally jumped on their wagon despite the fact that from reviews on blogs and YouTube, it appeared that the products were either hit or miss. I prayed, crossed my fingers and bought. Yes, that serious.

I bought two products from them last Christmas: the Mimosa Hair Honey and the Chocolat Blow Dry Cream, but the one I’m about to review was given to me by my bestfren when I saw her like 1000 years ago. Jk. It’s been 6 months but still, same difference yo.

IMG_4539This Monoi Repairing Hair Mask was actually given to MeeMee by a friend of hers when said friend was moving. MeeMee had a whole bunch of stuff when I visited her. So much that though she had used this mask, she didn’t remember anything about what it felt like. Not a good sign but I gladly took it. It took me long enough but I finally used it. And now it’s done. And now I wouldn’t mind having it back. :'(

First things first. This mask costs $32 for a 7oz tub and I don’t play like that. So I’m telling you straight away right now that this is why I will not be repurchasing.

As you can see, it is more attractive than most, if not all the deep conditioners you’ve used so far. :P

Full marks for packaging, 10/10.

Ingredients:

Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Glycerin, Cetyl Esters, Dimethicone, Fragrance (Parfum), Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Gardenia Tahitensis Flower Extract, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isohexadecane, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil, Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Oil, Phyllostachis Bambusoides Juice, Hydrolyzed Hibiscus Esculentus Extract, Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccaride, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Extract, Panthenol (Pro-vitamin B5), Cetrimonium Chloride, Cetrimonium Phenyl Trimethicone, Dimethiconol, Octyldodecanol, Ceteareth-20, Quarternium-91, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Methylisothiazolinone.

Worth noting: Water is the first ingredient. Glycerin is a humectant, Fatty alcohols are very present here, and dear softening Behentrimonium Methosulfate. Though there are no mineral oils, sulfates, parabens or artificial colours in this mask, it does contain silicones.

Monoi, Monoi

This has Monoi oil in it, and it’s being marketed as the Monoi Repairing Hair Mask, so they made it smell “authentic”. How do I know?

Well. Monoi oil is coconut oil infused with the essence of Tahitian Gardenia flowers. Monoi oil is famously from Polynesia (more specifically the Island of Tahiti).  I’ve never been to Tahiti so I wondered: why does this smell so familiar? I googled it and it’s the same flower or from the same family as the white flowers that grew on a tree in my primary school. You probably know it.

Tahitian Gardenias

Tahitian Gardenias

Interesting stuff right?

Side note: I imagine Monoi oil would smell nicer in real life because of the coconut oil that’s the base. The fragrance of this hair mask was just about the Gardenias.

Anyway. On to the actual review!

I used this product two times before I wiped it clean. Though I don’t hate it, I’m not too big a fan of the gardenia smell. Not then, not now.

Product Claims:

IMG_4458As seen on the website:

  • Monoi Oil gently conditions your hair all over
  • Bamboo Water, the strongest plant on our planet, helps reinforce your hair’s structure
  • Hydrolyzed Silk helps fortify your hair against future damage

In almost all products I have come across (this one included), I consider claims based on natural extracts to be some kind of swindle lol just see where these extracts feature on the Ingredients list. Let’s leave it at that. This mask promises to repair hair, with 96% less breakage after one use. I wasn’t experiencing breakage before use, so I can’t tell you anything about that.

I can tell you though, that it is cream coloured, and creamy in consistency. It has really good slip. I was heavy handed with it in some sections and in others, less so. Both sides felt the same afterwards, so this means I could have been more miserly with this product.

IMG_4430

How I Used:

I actually didn’t read the instructions until I was about to throw away the empty tub. They say to wear for 10-15 minutes under the dryer, but I carried it for one hour, under a shower cap. My hair was super soft each time. My coils were hydrated and I know they’re happy when they’re showing a little definition, trying to clump!

The first time I used this product, I divided my hair into three so I could compare it to two other deep conditioners (my staple Nothing But Intense Healing Mask & a sample of the SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex Hair Masque) After the one hour, my hair felt pretty good all round! So yay to all 3 DCs!

For me, the test of a really good conditioner- especially deep conditioner is that I don’t need to use a leave-in after washing. The first time I used this mask, I didn’t have too much time so I just applied my leave-in for the week and went my way.

The second time around, I washed my hair in twists, so I still had a little product left in. I simply sealed my ends with Castor Oil and the rest of my hair with the Mimosa Hair Honey (also from Carol’s Daughter). The Hair Honey is a pomade, really just a semi-solid blend of beeswax and oils. 6, 10 hours later, my hair still felt wonderfully soft. I twisted my hair and it still feels pretty good now, almost two days after.

I quite like this hair mask. It’s pretty and nice and portable but, e too cost! I won’t be buying it again but of kurz, free gifts are welcome.  ^_^

I’m pretty pleased with Carol’s Daughter so far. I’ll review the Mimosa Hair Honey next week, and soon I’ll show you what I did with the Blow Dry Cream.

If you’ve used this product before, or anything from Carol’s Daughter, your thoughts are always welcome in the comments. And if you use any brands that decorate shelves better than Carol’s Daughter, please point me in their direction!

Love,

AB,

What 22 Taught Me

Hello loves! 

How are you today?

It was my birthday yesterday and I had a good day. Thank you for all the very many wishes on Instagram! (And Twiduur & Facebook) :D

I’m 23 now whoop whoooop, and it does feel good. I’m not too too worried about “growing old” anymore lol, maturing is really something to embrace. 22 was a very somehow year with its ups and downs. Things did not happen as I thought they would, and even now, I don’t feel like I have my shit entirely together however- I don’t think I’m supposed to at this point. It’s a process right? 

In honour of the process and the birthday, I just thought I’d share some of the notes to self I made in the past year- realisations, observations, reminders and stuff.



  1. Drink tea! Please do. There are like a bajillion blends of tea in the world, there has to be something that matches your vibes. Tea is a recent habit, and it makes me so happy. I make a song and dance of it and this makes me feel grown up, fancy and cared for, like I’m giving myself a treat. Currently loving on a sweet and spicy blend of predominantly Rooibos tea from Good Earth. I like to squeeze a lemon or two limes into my tea. The other day, one lime, but I threw in an orange slice, with the rind still on. Amazingly flavourful, it made my day. Stuntin’ tea drinking is a habit, get like me!
  2. By avoiding an awkward situation, you just make it even more awkward. LOL
  3. Good music don’t live on TV no more. These music channels can be like black holes, sucking up your time and for what? Pssh.
  4. Before I used to wonder- ugh why do people honk so much? Environmental pollution, it’s rude, etc etc. Well now I know for a fact that honking in present day Lagos is a very essential language, the only one some people understand! 
  5. The life I want is mine to create. The freedom to be, my independence, peace of mind, nobody is going to (want to) give me that. I have to take it.
  6. Let the world have its own way and its own beliefs. They’ve got nothing to do with me. World over, most particularly in these parts, people (especially people that are not women) have a lot to say about what women should do, who we should be, how far we can go. Don’t listen to them, these days I don’t even bother to engage. The woman you want to be is entirely up to you to decide.
  7. The only way to do it is to DO it. Don’t overthink, just get in there, tell yourself that this thing has to be done.
  8. You can’t change anybody but it is actually possible for people to change on their own- so communicate. Be very clear about what you are about, and what you are willing to take. People will do what you let them, so know what you allow and what you don’t.
  9. A “friend” that has never been to your house (even though they live in the same city as you) is actually not your friend.
  10. Don’t spend money that hasn’t entered your hand yet. ( ._.)
  11. I need to be more responsible with my finances. If I can’t account for 10,000 naira properly, how do I know that I’ll be better with 1 million? Girls need to start making wise decisions, saving & investing. 
  12. Is there really such a thing as a self-made person (in the way that we rap about it)- built from scratch? I read Malcolm Gladwell’s ‘Outliers’ back in 2012 but I’ve had cause to reflect on it in the last few months. The story of success is never about just one person, is it? There’s a lot to draw on from the people around you, and I’m not talking about money. Point is, let people help you. It’s good to give, but learning to receive won’t kill you either. If you have a connection to something or someone, use it. Nobody can make YOU. Our help comes from the Lord, but he isn’t going to come down and work things out for you- he will use human beings. Dangote may have had help from his family when he started out, but that doesn’t make his story any less valid than the person with no shoes, or any sob-story of the Nollywood variety ( ._.) That helped, but it did NOT make him. It was an opportunity he made the best of, one many others have squandered. I know, it would sound good to say I did it all, by myself- super heroic, but maybe just maybe I’m not supposed to? And I really don’t think that’s an accurate account of anybody in this world. 
  13. Yes you are very special- but if you’re one in a million, there are like 7000 people in this world of 7 billion, or 170 people in this country like you LOL- just be grateful for your opportunities.
  14. Comparing your journey to another person’s is only going to make you miserable. 
  15. You may not know what exactly you want to do with your life. Maybe you want to do 10 things, but you have to start somewhere. Choose one and give it your full attention. Nothing says you can’t move on. 
  16. A giver is a giver, rich or poor. Giving doesn’t mean that you have plenty.
  17. Take better care of yourself. Eat better, learn to exercise (I’m crying yo) because the way my habits (and my tummy) are set up, middle age spread will have no problem at all taking over me.
  18. It’s okay to wallow and be sad, but don’t be there forever. Moping isn’t going to change your situation. Smiling will not solve the problem either lol, but what makes it more bearable? Yes my friend, stay on the bright side. It’s important.

Alright, I’m done. What lessons has life taught you lately? 

Love,

AB,

Hairspiration!: Nafisah

Hey beauts! My faves. I hope you are all having a decent week. It’s Friday!!! And it’s time to hair drool. Today, we have Nafisah!

Hey girl! Tell us about you!

Hello! My name is Nafisat. but I like feeling fancy with it by replacing the ‘t’ with ‘h’ sometimes. I’m an architecture student living and studying in Lagos.  I love reading, making new friends, trying out new things and my hair (yes, my hair is my hobby).  I tend to be very lively and cheerful. I smile a lot even when I sometimes feel like it’s unnecessary.

Have you always been natural? If not, when did you go natural? What inspired you to go natural? How did you do it (transition or BC or both)?

No. My short-lived quest for long healthy relaxed hair since September 2012 birthed my decision to go natural sometime in May 2013. It was one of those researches on ‘’how to grow long relaxed hair’’ that led me to a natural hair site in April 2013. I think the first blog I discovered was black girl long hair. I read hair features and fell in love with naturally kinky coily curly hair and from that moment, I knew I wanted to try it! As time went by, I learnt a lot from these blogs and finally did the big chop after 4 months of transitioning. I‘m glad I big chopped because I never really knew what it felt like to have really short hair (no, I wasn’t Rapunzel).

Tell us about your hair! Does she have a name? how does she feel? How would you classify her if you had to? (length, porosity, texture, density, curl pattern, if you’re into any hair science)

My hair! No she doesn’t have a name. I currently have a kinky- coily head of hair with densely and closely packed tight  and fine 4a strands. I generally have normal porosity hair with the nape area suppppper fine, supper coily and super fragile! My hair generally retains moisture well. The mid and nape sections take forever to dry. I just don’t get it. My edges (temple to ear are) retain moisture the least. Its like they just like to do their own thing! Oh well…My hair is so dense and can be challenging to work with in terms of styling and detangling. The nape area tends to be the least dense and easiest to style/manipulate (and break!)

WP_20131028_034

How do you care for your hair? Do you have a regimen? Any staple products?

I like to follow the basics. Cleanse, Condition, Protect and Maintain (and rock! lol) my regimen is really simple (in terms of technique and products)  I just like to use whatever works well for my hair and whatever is available. I shampoo, deep condition and finger detangle bi-weekly with Dudu Osun black soap and Vitale Hair Mayonnaise( plus honey, olive oil and Emily millionaire’s coconut oil and herbs) I moisturize damp hair with any available creamy leave in ( Paul Mitchell/Cantu Repair cream/Shea Moisture Smoothie) and seal with shea butter or castor oil.  Then proceed to put my hair in twists. Shikena. I feel I don’t have personal knowledge of hair products so right now I’m currently experimenting with more products for the sake of ‘experimenting’

What are the things your hair cannot do without?

My hair and SHEA BUTTER are hommies for life! Lol…My hair also loves Paul Mitchell the Conditioner, Castor oil and Vitale Hair Mayonnaise….Just anything creamy and slippery!!

WP_20141119_008

What have you realised your hair doesn’t like at all at all?

Hmmn…I’m not sure but I don’t think my hair likes being sealed with coconut oil (generally light oils). It dries my hair out when used alone but gives it shine. (o_0)  So I only use it to unravel my twists/braids and add shine to my hair.

How do you like to wear your hair? Usual hairstyles? Favourite style? Protective styling?

I like wearing my hair in chunky twist –outs ( well, when my hair was shorter) and puffs. Let’s just say puffs because most of the styles still end up in puffs now that my hair is longer. I’m just too afraid the huge sexy twist out might turn heads and break necks. But when I’m feeling really fancy, I just let that twist out do its thing.
I mainly do low manipulation styles because
1) I’m too in love with my hair to hide it.
2) I haven’t found a good ‘’affordable’’ hair stylist that would handle my hair with care yet.
3) I don’t have the patience to install protecting styles
4) I can’t get protective styles to last long. (That’s the point of protective styles in the first place)
When I’m getting too bored of my hair/ have some free time to spare/exams are approaching, I hide my hair under crochet braids, or box braids or weave. My favourite protective style is box braids!

wp_ss_20141215_0021

How do you feel about shrinkage? Do you fight it? Do you embrace it? Either way, tell us how

I don’t really know how I feel about shrinkage, but one thing I know is that I NEVER allow my hair to shrink….lol…no it’s not a fight. It’s just something I had to get used to doing if I want my fine curls to grow and flourish without much knots and tangles. I mostly keep my hair stretched through twists and braids, mini puffs and when I have time African threading a.k.a. Fake blowout!!! Lol

Have you received any negativity from others towards your hair? How did/do you deal?

I hardly get negative comments. But while hair was shorter in a twist out, a few people have criticized it. Now, Everyone I know currently admires it. Sometimes, It is mistaken for a weave or wig.

Are you facing any hair challenges right now or bad habits you’re trying to break? Bad habits? 

A lot. I can deliberately not moisturize my hair for a whole week just for the sake of stretching it . Now I know better..smh. Sometimes I go to bed without protection out of laziness.  Challenges? Yes o! My nape area. The hairs there are fine and fragile. They break easily and don’t retain much length because of their fragile nature. So I’m currently trying to be super gentle with it.

Do you have any hair goals- short or long term?

My long term hair goals: Be a styling guru, and probably healthy waist length natural hair.

Any last words to anyone considering going natural or a new natural?

First, accept your hair, and then love your hair. As it is, like it is.. You can’t achieve healthy long hair if you don’t love your hair. It’s like feeding a pet you don’t even like. Not possible! Secondly, please don’t go natural hoping that it would be a ‘’quick fix’’ to all your hair issues. (dumbest idea) This healthy hair journey is a learning process. If you are planning on going natural and you know that  you are impatient/afraid of making mistakes/don’t like learning new things/shallow –minded, you might end up getting so frustrated so early in your journey and probably hating your hair forever.  So please do your research about black hair first and at least have a mental picture of what you will be dealing with before taking the plunge.

WP_20141229_308(1)

Wise words, Nafisah! I hope you enjoyed reading that as much as I did.

P.S.: If you will be in Enugu TOMORROW June 13th, you should check out the Enugu Naturalistas hair meet up. It promises to be fun and there are prizes to be won! For more details, visit here.

Have a great weekend!

Washday: Rush Rush

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Really. Of all the times I’ve had to lose sleep in my life, I can only think of one time that it was worth it. Seriously. In uni if I stayed up the night before a test to read the two chapters that I hadn’t yet studied- it always happened that those chapters, or whatever material would not be relevant in the test the next day. So many small small things like that, but I can’t just keep calm, you can call me a “forcer”.

Now yesterday was Monday. I was supposed to be in court today so I needed a hairstyle that would not make it too difficult to wear my wig over it. A goddess braid or Celie twists would have been super cute solutions but your girl can’t cornrow or flat twist, and my brain wasn’t working too well, so I decided to do my go-to two-strand twists. Before the twists though, I had to wash my hair first. With small breaks, I was on this matter from 6pm till 1am.

Guess what. The judge could not make it this morning because she was stuck in traffic. I did not wear the wig. After washing I could have gone to sleep in chunky twists at 11pm and jejely worn a puff today. Never again should I put myself through this kind of struggle. The sufferhead I like to carry sometimes. And, cornrows and flat twists aren’t rocket science, I had better learn!

Normally, after a protective style, I make plans for a weekend, or 3 free days. Take hair down on Friday and pre-poo, wash on Saturday, style and dry on Sunday. This time, I was in a proper rush and as a result, I was not as gentle as I should have been. Ripped through some places, I was racing, just to finish. How is that for living life on the edge? (  ._.)

Here’s a quick run down of how that went:

1. I loosened my braids. First I cut them in a bob shape to see what that would be like. Not bad, but I’m thinking a longer bob may be it for me. I’m not sure.

I’m pretty sure though that I cut off some braids at the wrong points, losing some hair. :(

2. After loosening the braids, I had mini-twists to take down too, thanks to the box braid method I used (see this post). I loosened those too, and as I did so- in sections of 8, 10 twists, I dry detangled with plenty coconut oil, and put my hair in chunky twists- about 10 in total.

3. I shampooed, Felicia’s way. I applied my shampoo (L’Oreal Ever Sleek Shampoo) directly to my scalp, before I wet my hair. I rubbed my scalp with my fingertips to lift the dirt, and I rinsed off with warm water.

4. Then, I applied my deep conditioner, the Nothing But Intense Healing Mask to my hair in four sections, and combed each section through. I wasn’t rough with the comb. Normally I’d use just my fingers, but I needed to move fast. I covered my hair with a shower cap and let it sit for 20 minutes, and rinsed with cool water. My hair wasn’t feeling as soft as it should have. I think this could be because I haven’t been deep conditioning every week. Because of the protective styles I’ve been wearing this year, Washday has been like once a month. I’ll need to step up the frequency or start using heat again, if I continue at this rate.

5. To save the day, I did an oil rinse with Hempseed Oil. This oil contains ceramides and it’s supposed to be really good for relaxed, or otherwise processed/damaged hair. I thought twice about “wasting” it (Ceramides patch frayed cuticles. They are best left-in, rinsing them away is a waste of their goodness) but it is the only oil on my shelf apart from coconut oil and my precious castor oil. I applied it to my wet hair, and 3 minutes later, rinsed off with warm and then cool water. Much better.

6. Finally. I moisturised and sealed with the Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream & the Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey. 

7. I gave myself two hours to twist and made a run for it. I finished just in time. The result: slightly chubby twists. I expect them to get puffy at the roots and frizz even, but I’m hoping they last some days.

It’s a rainy afternoon in Lagos. Rainy season is here, and I’m contemplating protective styling again, this time a weave. Best weather for weaves, in my opinion- as long as you keep dry of course!

Still. I definitely need to learn how to do the flat twist thing, and find inspiration for more conservative natural hair styles on awkward length hair that would not require stretching first.

How are you today? How was your last Washday?

Love,

AB,

Product Review: Lotta Body Control Me Edge Gel

Happy Monday, beauts!

This is going to be a very quick post. Mainly because I do not have a lot to say other than: I HAVE FOUND AN EDGE CONTROL THAT WORKS FOR ME!

A while ago, I did a product review on the Creme of argan edge control and while I thought it was a good, non-harmful product, I was not satisfied with the effect it produced on my edges. Now, people, I NEED my edge control. I have baby pictures that show that the hair at my edges have always been scared of growing. So you know that this girl needs that extra something to make hair styles come together nicely. I continued to search and search for something that works. I was ready to try out every brand on the shelves. Enter Lotta Body.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but Lotta Body has been around for the longest time, right? I remember that name from when I was growing up. I never paid attention to Lotta Body when the name popped up again recently. I am not sure why I decided to give this product a try.

Okay, so what is this product?

20150607_220517

Lotta body control me edge gel with coconut and shea oils. It claims to be a styling agent that controls, holds, and smoothes edges. It also claims to be non-flaking, non-sticky, non-greasy, and non-hardening. It contains the following:

Aqua (Water) (Eau), Ceteareth-25, Propylene Glycol, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Glycerin, Parfum (Fragrance), PEG-25 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Triethanolamine, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil Benzophenone-4, Limonene, Coumarin, Phenoxyethano, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Cl 42090 (Blue 1), Cl 17200 (Red 33)

First Impressions

20150607_220532

Blue. It’s got a nice blue colour and the transparency reminds me of a body of water. (Side note: if you look at the ingredient list, you will see that there are two different colouring chemicals in this product – red and blue. I’m curious as to why it came out blue. Oh, the wonders of chemistry.) I’m not a fan of the smell. It smells like candy science. This is my way of saying that it smells sweet but it has a chemical smell that I have associated with non-natural hair products.Texture wise, it is pretty light and absolutely non-sticky. This is great because it slides easily from finger to, and through hair. This for me, is something that has been missing in the previous edge controls that I have tried. They are either too ‘pomadey’ or sticky or too watery or too ‘gelly’. This one, this one is perfect.

So, does it work?!

You bet it does! First of all, the result it produces on initial application is divine. The fact that it stays on the entire day is a lot more than I could have asked for!

IMG-20150427-WA0007

7 hours after applying. I never hesperred it!

This edge control is soft, light, does not leave residue, sleeks hair without hardening it and feels moisturising as well. What more can a girl want? 10 full points for this edge control! Oh yes, a little does go a long way with this. You know how AB and I feel about the dime size ministry, right? Well there are some products that we have found to require dime size or even less. This is one of them.

I got this tub for $4 at my local beauty store. It is being sold on amazon for $6.99.

Have you used this edge control? How did you find it? What other edge controls will you recommend?

Have a great start to the week, beauts! Till next time.
