A GRrreat Time @ NATURALS IN THE CITY 6

So it was all fun at this weekend’s Natural Hair meet up. I got to chatting with some very interesting ladies, ogled FABULOUS Hair-dos, made  a few purchases of natural hair products and got some new tips for growing natural hair…

Tip 1.  Rather than using a comb use fingers to de-tangle the hair.

Tip 2.  Use scissors to cut hair knots (I think they call them “fairy-knots”) instead of breaking them off.

Tip 3.   Eucalyptus oil is meant to be used sparingly… Now, I’m glad I got this tip right on time. I had actually started rubbing it on my scalp each night and it was yielding positive results in the scanty area on my head. So now I have reduced the ritual to twice a week. Someone please tell me if that’s good or bad!

Tip 4.  Biotin and MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) are recommended drug supplements for hair growth,  and with an addition of Vitamin C results are fantastic… Well, that’s what I was told O! I’m presently doing a little research of my own before jumping into the pool with the users. 🙂

Please click on the pictures if interested in a better view. I have NO idea why the uploads turned out as thumbnail 😛
 All in all, the 6th of July, 2013 was a good day. The hair tips, the products, the gist and sheer excitement I got seeing all the lovely natural hair styles and textures made the days’ event worth while. ‘TOTALLY looking forward to the next “Saturday of NATURALS IN THE CITY- A Natural Hair meet up“! 🙂

Death of a wig

😦 Its a sad day people!

I took the time to wash and condition one of my wigs today that resulted in an epic FAIL! 😦

This wasn’t its first wash- I haven’t the foggiest idea what went wrong this time… I even used cold water for crying out loud so why the tangle?! 😐

I’m totally in the dark right now! 😮 I have 2 other wigs in urgent need of a wash…So if there’s anyone out there with genuine tips on how best to care for wigs PLEASE drop a few liners or better still send me links to a blog about wig care…

NB: THIS IS NO JOKE ….The continued existence of my remaining wigs hangs in the balance of your comment!

Thanks! 😉

lost but never forgot! ;)

Dear wig, you may be lost but never forgot! 😉
