Get Fuller Edges in 2 Minutes With Toppik

If like me you’re always in a constant hide and seek game with your edges, this post would show you how to get fuller edges in two minutes! Earlier this year, I posted my progress with my edges after sticking to my scalp massage regimen, then I got this not-so-great idea to get braids done and all my hard work went down the drain. I heard of hair fibers in 2013 but the price was outrageous at that time; about 15 000 Naira. I came across it recently again and finally decided to give it a try!

My Top 5 Leave-in Conditioners For Natural Hair

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”

How To Care For Your Hair Tools

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 love scalp massages whether they are done using the tip of my fingers or my Ultimate Grow Scalp Massager from SavvyChic/NaijaHairCanGrow. I’m currently dealing with traction alopecia (story for another post, coming soon) and scalp massages are now an important part of my daily hair care routine.

DIY: Scalp Exfoliator

As a huge fan of co-washing, I tend to accumulate tons of products and dead cells on my scalp which does nothing to help hair growth. Recently, I discovered ‘scalp exfoliating’ which not only cleanses your scalp thoroughly, but also gets rid of dead skin cells on the scalp.
