I love Brazilian wool and it has easily replaced regular braiding hair for me. I tried Brazilian wool for the first time in 2015 and showed how I created three different hairstyles with it in this Brazilian Wool Twists post. This current style was inspired by the amazing Falana, I went for box braids instead of twists this time around. I originally wanted to do this with grey-colored Brazilian wool but I might be on clinical rotation soon and they are not fans of colored hair over here.
I’ve always wanted to travel to Accra, Ghana via road for the longest time. I’ve tried planning a trip with my mum (who was adamant about using flight, so cancelled) and different group of friends but it always got cancelled due to one reason or the other. When I saw that Cassie was planning a trip to Ghana, I decided to jump on it, after going back and forth and nearly cancelling, we did it!

If you’re “hip” and keep up with latest beauty trends (if you’re not, don’t worry I’m struggling too), you might have noticed that DIY activated charcoal masks made with glue are the new thing right now. I don’t know who launched this trend but I would never use glue on my face or advise anyone else to. I had to look for a better alternative to glue and share my experience before we all got dragged under. There are numerous benefits of activated charcoal including teeth whitening and underarm lightening but we’ll be focusing on the skin benefits in this post.

When I chopped off all my relaxed ends, hair-typing was one of the things I found totally unnecessary until I tried certain styles and products that my 3A YouTube sisters were raving about but was an epic fail for me. After extensive research, I finally concluded that I have 4C hair even though I wanted 4A hair with all those baby curls. Don’t know your hair type or not sure what all I just wrote means?

When Cassie and I were in Ghana, we tried to do as many tourist-y things as possible and visit as many places in Accra as we could in 2 full days. Now, you’re not going to find anything about Ghana jollof or food in this post because either the one place we tried it were having a bad day on that particular day or it’s just not worth talking about, you choose. These places were my absolute favorites, we visited other places you might not find on this list but must have seen if you follow me on Instagram
I was invited by TheBloggerPoint alongside some other amazing bloggers for an afternoon of food and networking at Bibi’s Grillhouse and I knew it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t share my experience and more importantly food pictures with you guys. I’m always teasing my Snapchat and Instastory fam with pictures of amazing food so I’ve decided to finally bring that here, you can check the food section of the blog for regular updates on restaurants I would be visiting.
While writing this post, I realized that all the products are under 5000 Naira ($10), it got me wondering why people are always complaining that “having natural hair is expensive”. Once you find the right products for your hair, you really do not have to break the bank to maintain healthy hair. These products are my absolute favorites that have been of great help on my natural hair journey and I’ve gone through at least 2 tubs/bottles of each. I use the Liquid – Cream – Oil (LCO) method to moisturize my hair and Leave-in conditioners are the creams I use. So far, these are my favorites: Continue reading “My Top 5 Leave-in Conditioners For Natural Hair”
