I cannot believe we have clocked one year on this blog.
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my readers who continually come to the blog for some info, or just to see what I and my hair are up to. To my fellow bloggers who pop in for a look-see and drop a comment. Not forgetting my friends and family who supported me in starting the blog, bear with my hair talks and my nagging them to take photographs of me and my hair.  I can never say thank you enough.

Let's take a trip down Memory Lane with  your favourite posts and few of my own.

Heat straightening is always an event in the hair world. Most popular post with you guys when I straightened my hair and reviewed the ORS Straightening and Strengthening Kit.

First Look - Caivil Fusion Oil

Hi me lovely doveys

Seeing as I have been rocking a weave for the past few weeks, I decided to look out for an applicator bottle that would help me access my scalp without the oil getting to the weave and weighing it down.

Source : Im still having issues uploading my pic so I had to source a picture of the oil.

Enter Caivil Fusion Oil
I spotted this at Clicks Grove Mall (Windhoek) and it retails for N$38.99 (approx 4 USD)
What drew me to the oil was the applicator tip for ease of access to my scalp. However upon closer inspection of the ingredients,  I was blown away. So much so that I'm writing about it before I've even reached halfway through the bottle. Im that pleased y'all.
I don't usually get wowed by products made by caivil as the ingredients tend to leave much to be desired, and Sunday was my lucky day cause I got it for free.99 with my Clicks Card Bonus Points.

Hairsolutions 2015 in Review

Hey Doves!

We are 5 months into 2015 and I recall making some hairsolutions to keep my hair on point in the new year, as well as to avoid another super trim.

1. Get back to armpit length
Did I attain this goal 5 months in? Stay tuned for a length check pic in the next few posts. 

2. Use an essential oil every week
Partial compliance. Thanks to my ORS Invigorating Shampoo, almost every wash had a lovely tingle from the rosemary and peppermint oils. During the weeks of February and  March I oiled my scalp at least once a week with a mix of castor oil, peppermint oil, T444Z and grapeseed oil. However as we progressed into April and May, I got less consistent with this and would oil with anything I could get my hands on.

3. Master the braid out
Total fail! Between work and life I did not even have the energy to experiment with a braid out. There are still 7 months left, the braid out must be conquered!

4. Stay on top of my ends
Honestly I haven't had a good look at them of late. But i have stayed away from heat as much as possible. Iv'e used it only 3 times the whole of this year and that was to get my weave and braids done. (Someone clap for me). But I haven't trimmed since my super cut in December. So im overdue for a trim just to ensure everything is ok.

5. Experiment less
Total success. I have stayed true to my ORS Replenishing conditioner, Dark n Lovely Ultra Cholesterol and Aquamarine green apple conditioners. Woot woot!! No funny concoctions and only ONE new oil mix that I purchased which I was just dying to try out. So I  guess there is hope for my product junkism after all.

2 and a half out of 5...hmmm thank goodness for the remaining 7 months of the year. 

Have you reviewed your hair goals lately?

Where has Bee Been?

Hi Doves!

Ooo la la  things have definitely gotten quiet around these ends.
I've been quite the busy bee. From lost internet connections, to hectic work schedule, no energy, graduation (YES IM NOW A GRADUATE), things came to a standstill on the blog. But im picking right up from where I left off.

My last protective style was a wig. From there I moved into braids. The braiding experience was not so nice, but I loved the convenience of being able to spray and go as I headed to the office. I was very consistent in moisturising and oiling my scalp. However on the washing end, I only washed 3 times in all 6 weeks I kept my braids (face palm of shame). But that is an average of once every 2 weeks right....riiiight? :-) Currently I am rocking a weave.

I have noticed that because of the humid climate here in Kitwe and the length of my hair, I have had to use light protein more regularly. As in almost every week. Each time I would check my hair under the wig or in the braids, my hair would feel almost too moisturised. So much so, that I would even skip a day on purpose because I was trying to avoid over-moisturised hair.

One very important lesson i've picked from this is to keep listening to our hair and its needs. Bloggers (like myself hehe) , youtubers and hair experts all recommend doing xyz every how many weeks. But the best recommendation is to go with how your hair feels. The last thing you want is broken or damaged hair only because you MUST do a moisturising DC since you did a light protein treatment the previous week. So determine what your hair needs according to how it feels and tells you.

Unfortunately, no pic yet...because i'm having trouble uploading. Pictures to follow asap!!
