How To Care For Wigs

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.

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.

Scalp Massage 101

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. If you aren’t already getting scalp massages done, I’m going to be highlighting why and how you can.

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.

I shampoo regularly, is this necessary?

Yes! It is necessary. Sometimes, shampooing gets rid of product build up but not always excess oil, natural sebum and dead skin cells which can clog your hair pores and prevent growth.

Wash That Weave !

HAPPY NEW MONTH YOU GUYSS

 

CONGRATULATIONS ON OUR NEW PRESIDENT NIGERIANS

It’s my birthday month too, I’ll be a year older on the 11th, which is another Election Day coincidentally. Last month made this blog a year old! I think a giveaway is in order and I’ll let you guys know as soon as possible.

Now on to the matter of the day, if you’re one of the ladies that believe once you get a sew-in weave, you’re free from all wash day duities, stop reading this and apologize to your hair and weaves (seriously). Sometimes you pass by some females and the stench from the weaves just make you want to stop breathing (this used to be me 3 years back, welp). On Monday, I finished from school early and decided to wash my weave, I had been postponing this for about 2 days. It’s a short weave so you might want to make out a day to wash longer weaves or use the dry shampoo method; I’ll put up a post on that later.

Deep Conditioning With Palm Oil

Hey Guys!
Yes, you read right; palm oil. About two weeks ago, I was feeling really good about my hair and decided to do something new, then I remembered reading a post on one of my favorite blogs about the goodness of Palm oil (read here) and I decided to try it.

Washing Wigs

Happy 54th Nigeria !
I woke up this morning excited about witnessing another Independence Day, which is slightly strange. Although we’re not where we should be as a country but we thank God for the little benefits He gives us.

Washing in Cornrows

Hey Guys!
This is really just an impromptu post. Before this evening, my hair was tucked beneath a weave but then I started having an awful headache and I have a test to study for, I had this overpowering itch to pour water on my head but I was considering other things like; I just had this weave installed less than two weeks ago, I have no idea what I’ll be doing to my hair next if I decide to take it out. In the end, I gave in and took it out. Now the super lazy part of me kept pushing me to wash the hair without loosening the cornrows the weave was attached to and I did 🙈
