Now That You've Decided To Go Natural!

Hello beauts,

I am writing this post to help many ladies out there who are planning on keeping their hair unrelaxed i.e what most of us call "natural", and don't know how to go about it.

During the course of my duty, I meet a lot of women everyday, young and old. And that decision to have the big chop is real. But it's not surprising to find that majority of them are clueless on what to do with or use on their hair, during the transition process, before or after having the big chop.

The Big Chop aka BC, by the way, is cutting off all the relaxed part, leaving only the unrelaxed portion. It can also be shaving off the entire head of hair completely and starting afresh.
Transitioning is letting the unrelaxed part grow out to any length of your choice before doing the BC. Most of the times, transitioning preceeds BC.

If you are planning to big chop, if you have already done it or you're currently transitioning and still don't know what products to use or the steps involved with taking care of your curly hair this post is just for you! Read on...

How To Maintain Your Skin Color

You have bought an expensive or not-so-expensive skin lightening set, you have also created this fantastic day and night routine for yourself, and now you can see the results: your skin has gotten one or two shades lighter! Bravo!! Really, bravo!!!

Your skin has finally reached your desired complexion, so what next???
This is the part where many of us ladies, especially from this part of the world, miss it.

While I am personally not in support of skin lightening of any kind, I am in support of protecting your skin during the day. 

The sun is powerful than the strongest skin lightener in the world.
So, if you're not careful of what you do and use, you will not only end up with your previous complexion, you may become several shades darker than you were before. 

Find out why...

I get to meet a lot of people every single day. Thanks to my job. And whenever I wear my hair natural especially wash and go's, I create a circus. It always happens.

Are Your Hands Too Hard for A Handshake??? Soften It Up, Really!

Hello beauties,

Welcome to a new week. Hope it has been going on greatly.

If you’re always physically active like I am, constantly having to wash, rewash and rewash your hands. Then you will know what it feels like to have soggy, wrinkly hands (at one end of the wetness) or flaky white, rough hands and nails (at the other end of dryness).

To even make matters worse, the constant use of severely drying hand sanitizers especially during this Ebola period is not helping matters.

Fabulous Acne Regimen for the Oily Skin Girl!

The Clean and Clear Advantage line
Hello beauts,

How was the week? Mine was fabulous.

Fabulous seem to be the hottest word on my lips right now. Well, what can I do? The word just crept in. 

I have fabulously oily skin. And I love it.
LOL, I have embraced myself the way I am ooo. You can't really fight the oils. It's like fighting yourself. You may ask how do I know if I am a true oily-skinned girl? A girl with oily facial skin?

One Year Natural!

My pompadour kinky twists
Yes peeps, 
I have been up to a lot lately.
And you all know I missed you. But first of all, welcome to the month of September. August was heavy with rain almost everyday here in Lagos that it was nothing close to being called an August Break at all. 
Well, now that the weather is humid, I decided to take advantage of it and rock my natural hair.
