My Assessment: After nearly 6 months of use, I have to say that this styling gel lives up to its promise. I use this to tame my edges. It is very lightweight but it does the job. It is water-based and easy to take off. It also tames my edges and nourishes them at the same time. It also has argan oil which is very good for the hair. I also like the fact that there is LOVE AND PRIDE in the ingredients. I did not notice until I decided to review this product.

A wonderful speech by my favorite author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. This speech is very thought provoking. If you know the song ***FLAWLESS, this is the full speech.
Sadly, I will not be available to blog for a while. I’m writing exams (finals) till the end of April and I will not be able to post regularly but I will try to post in my free time.
Guess who is on Instagram!?!? Me!!!!! finally. I decided to join Instagram because I think it is a nice platform to share my personal side through pictures and to create picture perfect memories. I hope I get some support out there (like I get on the blog) because social media scares me a lot. Anyways, to find me click here or you can click on the instagram widget at the side bar.
And if you want a follow back please just comment that you want one and you’ll definitely get one.

Happy Valentine’s day!!!
Is Valentine overrated? Yes! Should it be ignored? No. I don’t find it justifiable to show love only on one day. I guess we should try to show love everyday to everyone around us because that is the only way we can make the world a better place. But I think that Valentine’s day is just like a love awareness day.
Anyhoo, I’m just sitting here sipping down juice (Yes! From a wine glass) and eating chocolate, watching The Notebook and other classics.
I really don’t see the use of moping around, sulking about the fact that you don’t have a Valentine (and if you do, congratulations!). Since I love myself so much, I got myself a Valentine’s gift. I thought it was pathetic when someone suggested it to me at first but I later saw it from another perspective; “No one can love you better than you”.
I’m loving this, there is nothing better than self love. Loving yourself empowers you and raises yourself esteem which is probably murdered on a day like this. So go out get yourself some chocolate or cupcakes or some flowers. Pamper yourself today. Take yourself out, buy that gift you’ve been saving for and have a wonderful day. Also, remember to show an act of random kindness because there is no better feeling than when you help somebody.
“Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends.”
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
and I bought new products, these will probably be the only products we’ll need this month (Amen). If you notice, she does most of the buying and I do most of the using.
Ultra-Cholesterol Conditioning Mask: I’ve read so many reviews about this product (good and bad) I have mixed feelings towards this product. I don’t have very damaged hair, well, I don’t think my hair is damaged at all but it can’t hurt to try. The conditioner is bright yellow and the smell is a bit funky.
ORS Hair Mayonnaise: There are a lot of good reviews on this product! I can’t wait to use it.
Holistic Spa Shower Gel: This shower gel actually smells like a spa or what I think a spa smells like. It is beautiful by the way.
Venus Skin Quench: It contains ‘Light Moisture Body Lotion’, ‘Light Moisture Face Cream’ and ’2 in 1 Refreshing Toner & Make-up Remover’
I started my hair journey on the 9th of October, 2013. I’ve been about four months into the journey and I have to say it is not easy at all. I have learnt a lot about my hair and I am still learning everyday. I did not take any length pictures at the beginning and will not take any pictures until I am 6 months into my hair journey. This is because I don’t want to concentrate on length but rather on healthy hair. Nevertheless, I have seen some improvements in the length of my hair and some people have confirmed it.
I have not gone through a product phase and I do not hope to go through one because from the videos I watched on YouTube, most of the people on a hair journey find this product phase quite frustrating. Yes, I acquired a number of products while starting, but about all of them work perfectly for me and I hope to acquire a few more as I progress. I have also thrown out some products which are harmful to my hair.
I recently did a hot oil treatment for the first time and I have successfully avoided heat for about six months now. I’ve been avoiding heat on my hair even before I started this hair journey. In this short period of four months, I have relaxed my hair after stretching it for about six months and this time I relaxed my hair properly. Although it has been about one and a half months since I relaxed my hair, I can already see new growth and now I have to intensify my regimen till my next relaxer when I can lessen my regimen.
Finally, I want to thank everyone who has been encouraging me, this has helped a lot and a shout out to my sister… Your hair is growing babe. (We are in this journey together!)
