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”

It’s my birthday!!!!
If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you would already know today is my birthday, I haven’t been able to shut up about it. I took a few days to reflect on what I’ve done and achieved this past year and I was truly overwhelmed. I’m grateful for the constant support I receive from my friends and strangers alike, you guys are amazing, thank you!
P.S: I love food and envelopes that contain money as birthday presents.
I get questions all the time on where to purchase wig making supplies and tools in Nigeria, trust me it was a huge struggle for me when I first started too. Thankfully, all your many questions pushed me to finally do something I’ve wanted to do for a really long time; curate a beginner-friendly wig making kit. After 3 years of making wigs and teaching others how to make wigs, I’ve been able to put all my knowledge (and love) into curating 20 wig kits and the great part is, as a way to celebrate my birthday, 20% of the proceeds from the wig kit sale goes to The Dorcas Cancer Foundation.
The Dorcas Cancer Foundation is a non-profit organisation that was founded to support children suffering from cancer in Nigeria, as well as their families. Our mission is to ensure early detection, accurate diagnosis and prompt & proper treatment of all childhood cancers in Nigeria.

Argan oil is one of my top 2 favorite oils, the other is Rosehip Oil. My first experience with Argan oil was when I used the Creme of Nature hair dye and they had those sweet smelling
overprocessed argan oils in the cute vials. A year later I bought original Argan oil and my disappointment when I found out it wasn’t sweet smelling was palpable.
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).
