Clear, Healthy Skin!

My clear, glowing skin. NO makeup.

Clear, healthy and glowing skin is the dream of every woman. I know I have always wanted it more than anybody else. From my teenage days, when I started having serious breakouts up until the beginning of this year, I have always suffered bouts of breakouts. They come and go and keep coming. I have tried a lot of products. I am always willing to try new things, anything to help get rid of my acne. It didn't help my acne. Maybe, I wasn't patient enough, or probably the products were not the right ones for my skin type.

I have oily skin; with large pores and post-inflammatory hypigmentation [PIH]. The only part of my face that never gets oily are my under eye. Even my eyelids are greasy!

H is for Henna!

I hear that many naturals spend an entire day just to wash their hair. Are you for real? Seriously, a whole day to wash hair??? That’s really ridiculous!

I hate that anyone has to be in such bondage, as I see it, to something so beautiful as hair.

You DON'T have to do everything in one day sisters!

Pre-poo, cowash, deep condition, oil treatment, protein treatment, all in one day??? That's insane. Trust me, hard working Nigerian chics are way too busy for that kind of stress. I mean why over-complicate an already complicated life.

Really Sultry Eyes

Hello beautyful people,

It has been quite a while I posted quite anything on makeup and I know it's about time. Even though I have quite a lot of photos pending to be uploaded, I guess I have been very well carried away by my new found love for hair products lately.

Constance is fair skinned with short curly hair, and her diamond-shaped face is to die for. I wouldn't say working on her was a breeze (because we got interrupted so many times by other people) but I enjoyed every bit of it.
