It’s been a while! How y’all doing?
As you can see from the title of this post, I cut my hair! (Cue the gasping)
I have been so tired of my hair lately! Washing it, dealing with it on a daily basis, detangling it, styling it, the whole shebang! I’ve been super frustrated with my hair. And I think this is the major reason why I never really blog about my hair anymore.
I actually considered relaxing it quite a number of times.
Finally, I decided that maybe I should get a funky fade/haircut. Like this:
So my hair turned 3 on the 18th of July! I honestly was planning on skipping the nappiversary/length check post but @kinkchic on Instagram left a comment on one of my posts talking about the nappiversary post so I just had to do it.
What were my goals from my two year nappiversary and how well did I do?
Today, I bring you a product review.
I’d been seeing this product online and once saw it at NITC but didn’t buy it because it was pricey.
In October last year, my sister spotted Olori’s stand when we were at the Beauty Africa Exhibition and Conference. We headed there are purchased the medium sized tub which usually costs 4000 NGN. However, we were able to get a discount so we got it at 3600 NGN and they threw in a little sample tub for free.
Hey beautiful people,
Did your week go well? Mine was just so-so.
I hope you’ve entered for the giveaway that Nafisah and Oge of Coily Head of Hair and I are having.
It’s my birthday tomorrow by the way! I will probably have a post up tomorrow but in the event that I don’t, I just thought to let you know. I will be a quarter of a century old and I sure do feel old! 😦
You know how you have so many things you wish you would have achieved by a certain age and then that age comes around and you’ve basically achieved nada on your list of goals? You don’t? *cough* Me neither! *nose grows Pinocchio style*
Anyways, here’s the rest of my Instapicks Backlogs and they are sort of a lot.
I’m super excited to let you know that I’ve been featured on African Naturalistas!
This is a blog that I’ve been reading since… since!
So I feel ‘appy, I feel fulfilled because I never experredit.(Just kidding)
So yeah, go check it out here.
Don’t forget to show some love!
If you missed Instapicks last week, please accept my sincere apologies for not posting.
You see, what had happened was… I don’t even remember what happened.
Let’s all hold hands and sing the theme song of Frozen as we forgive and let it go.
I’ll more than make up for it with this post because you are in for a picture overload. Brace yourself!
Thanks to ‘Denike, I found a new way to post the Instagram pictures and videos here in such a way that you can see each person’s handle, caption (which on some occasions is even doper than the picture) etc!
I’m so excited!
You know how you spend some good money on buying braiding hair/attachment/extensions and on paying the hair stylist to make it for you? Then you spend a good amount of time sitting down to get the hair braided and by the time you’re done, you can barely feel your butt? Then 4 weeks down the line the hair starts looking old in your eyes and you’re tired of it?
Girrrrl, been there, done that!
I’m going to share with you 3 easy ways to revamp your braids/twists and give them a new look so you can enjoy every single kobo you spent!
I decided to take a break from the Instapicks Of The Week post, seeing as the last one was on Wednesday, and instead do one of my long overdue product reviews.
I can’t even remember when I bought this product because I’ve had it for so long. As you can see, it is even dusty.
So let’s get into the nitty-gritty.
I know, I know! This post is supposed to have been up on Sunday and today is Wednesday.
I know you people must be tired of hearing my many many excuses but please find a place in your heart to forgive me because you love me; I know you do!
So the 12th NITC (Naturals In The City), a natural hair and lifestyle meetup, was on the 26th of September and as you probably know, I went.
I met some lovely blog readers and I got to meet some great bloggers too e.g Nafisah and Grace.
This time, I wasn’t early so the hall was full when I got there(there were soooo many people at this NITC!). As a result, I will not be doing a summary of the talks because I missed them unfortunately.
I however have pictures for you!
