Product Review; Dr Miracle’s Temple & Nape Gro Balm

Hi Hi,
    So last month I promised I would do a review of Dr Miracle’s Temple and Nape Gro Balm; I’ve tried to be as honest as possible, no bias judgements.


Size: 4 Oz./113g

Price: N1100

Product Claim: Promotes strong, shiny, healthy, growing hair.  Tingling sensation supports strong growing hair and healthy scalp, stimulates blood flow to the scalp in the temple and nape areas. Balm continues to work even after you stop feeling it.

How To Use: Use twice a day for 30 days and evaluate your results. Massage into the temple and nape (back of your head) directly into the scalp. May be used on hair as a finishing touch. Leave in. Style as usual.

This product contains mineral oil and a few other ingredients I was wary of but it promised growth and my front hair could use a bit of that right now. I used it for a little over a month and honestly, I didn’t really notice any change in the growth of my hair plus I have dull hair so I didn’t notice any improved shine either. I must add that I wasnt exactly religious with the application instructions, half of the time I was using it, my hair was beneath a weave and I just couldn’t be bothered at night. Anyway, I’m not sure I’m going to continue using it and I cant bring myself to throw away the container. As promised on the container, it does have a nice tingling sensation when applied although I made the mistake of applying it on freshly washed hair and a relaxer burn was nothing compared to it.
My hair is in braids right now and I’m pretty optimistic this time, I had smaller braids done compared to the previous ones I’ve had this year, I also braided my hair into 5 cornrows to stretch it a day before I had the braids done.

Have a lovely weekend !

New Look; Beauty is Pain

Happy New Month!
I’m writing this post in a great
deal of pain, ibuprofen has
definitely lost its effect on me, my
only consolation right now is that I
look great! So I decided to give
protective styling a whole different
approach since braids wasnt
cutting it for me; I’ve had braids
twice this year and they both didnt
make it past two weeks for me, I
tried two different salons so it
definitely had to do with my hair.
For this look, I used three
bundles of 20″ hair and one bundle
of 8″ hair all from Dazzle Hair
(check the where-to page for and it was very
affordable too! I did a protein
treatment with Dr Miracle’s Deep
Conditioner the night before on
freshly washed hair. I decided to
install the hair at a salon located in
my school, when I walked in, I
could feel the piercing stare of a
particular stylist on my head and I
silently prayed she wouldnt be the
one handling my hair, but I was out
of luck today. I made myself
comfortable, explained to the male
stylist what I wanted and he
assured me I was in good hands
(he couldnt have been more
wrong), ten minutes later, ‘miss-piercing-stare’ was walking
towards me with those tiny blue
tail combs, I kept pretending to be
busy with my phone hoping she’d
walk past me. “Aunty raise your
head” was the next thing I heard,
the whole braiding process was
tedious; I had to keep telling her
what to do every step of the way.
The guy who did the sewing made
it no secret that he was in a hurry
to attend to someone else, he kept
pulling my head in every direction.
Anyway, two hours later I was
done and bam !
