I have enough oils to start an apothecary.

I didn’t realize I had many different oils until I was clearing out my product drawer while moving earlier this year. The Rosehip oil and Argan oil are my favorites but we’ll be talking about the Rosehip oil from one of my favorite Nigerian brands.
Ever since I witnessed them mixing products to pour into Head & Shoulders shampoo containers in the market, I’ve become more firm in my resolve to stick with Nigerian brands that I trust. You hear of diluted, adulterated products but witnessing the act is something else entirely, I was angry for the whole day.
Moving on, I got the Mint Organic Care (M.O.C) Peppermint Foot Scrub in my Albimazing box. I rarely get to have proper manicure, pedicure and pamper sessions (because med school struggles), so this product was a real treat for me.
I often get questions regarding where to purchase hair care and beauty products and although the directory has a list of salons and stores, I decided to put the spotlight on BeautyGallery. I love that you can place orders online and get it within 24 hours. This store retails some of my favorite hair care brands like Shea Moisture and Creme of Nature, they also stock makeup &skin care products, hair extensions and weaves ( I got this from them).

Happy New Month Guyssss
I get the “how do I take care of my wigs?” question a lot so I decided to finally put this out. Hopefully, it answers your questions concerning wig care and is as helpful as it was to others I’ve given a summary of this.

It’s easy to neglect taking care of our hair tools and depending on how often you use them, product buildup could lead to the accumulation of dirt and germs that have harmful effects to your hair. The frequency with which you use your hair tools would determine how often you need to wash and clean them. Personally, I choose a day of the week to do that.
I’m shamelessly #BuyNigerian and discovering new Nigerian owned/Made-in-Nigeria beauty and hair care brands truly excite me. I received these products last year from Abebi Organics; a Shea butter based skin & hair care products company , hand made and delivering quality organic, natural products with love.
Happy New Year!
You’ve probably said and heard this a million times already but you haven’t heard it from me (except you follow me on Instagram of course). I wrote down a list of things I would like to achieve before the end of the year, some are looking quite over-the-top but I’m really working to push myself this year and I hope you are too!
2016 was a one of a kind year, the kind that has a special section in the history books. I tried to keep track and you can find out what I got up to in the first, second and third quarter of this year here, here and here.
