RELAXED HAIR UPDATE



      Here's a quick post on how my hair has been improving since my relaxer application a week ago , like i said in my previous post here, i was really getting fed up up of having to manage 3 textures of hair  especially the new growth which was really coarse and was getting tangled all the time. So i ended my relaxer stretch at 3 months.
        I already deep conditioned the hair two days ago using a product i will be reviewing later ,and so far no more breakage, and shedding has been reduced to the minimum since i deep conditioned.

KEEPING THE SKIN MOISTURISED DURING THE HARMATTAN


    Ladies are you feeling the dry and dusty hazy wind yet ? Well if you're in Nigeria right now you will understand why i'm asking .The harmattan season is here and we all know what that means , from dry flaky skin to dry gray looking dusty hair not to mention  the dry chapped lips that sometimes become sore and painful...(*shivers*)
When i was younger it was Vaseline to the rescue , my folks had that thing in every room at home for us as kids. That was the only way we could beat the harmattan,but as we get older and wiser we discover better products that are safer for us and our house hold because vaseline its self contains a  huge percentage of mineral oil.
So here are a few of the items i'll be hanging on to for now until the weather gets better.

NEUTROGENA CONTINUOUS HYDRATION CREAM CLEANSER - Best For Dry Skin

          If you've been a constant reader on my blog you will know by now that i'm a Neutrogena fan,there is nothing more satisfying than getting your money's worth when using a product you have bought not freebies this time (even though i love freebies and goodie bags....lol).
        This cleanser is very hydrating especially for those who have dry skin or ageing skin,i actually got it for the dry windy season that is fast approaching and for removing my makeup. It's not a foaming cleanser but a creamy one.Its best to use at night when removing your makeup such as water proof mascaras and liquid eye-liners.





























      This cleanser is very good and it leaves my face feeling clean but it feels a little bit oily though at the same time but like i said its quite good for removing makeup , it will also be good as a daily cleanser for someone with a dry facial skin , it leaves my skin feeling moisturised and soft  afterwards.I do sometimes follow up with the Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Toner which is great for Acne treatment.




    I think this will be great for a mature skin or for fighting wrinkles as well due to its contents and consistency.

TEXTURE MY WAY LEAVE-IN DETANGLING SOFTENING CREME THERAPY

            It is exactly three months today since my last relaxer in September and i''m quite sure i'm not the only one dealing with new growth that is fast becoming matted and difficult to comb through due to long stretches like this. My hair is constantly needing moisture but this time around it was longing for a detangling conditioner instead. I couldn't reach my scalp and when i do massage with hot oils i always feel i haven't reached everywhere,So i went out to get a detangling lotion and found one by Texture my way.
       I am yet to find a review for this conditioner on the internet but like i always do when getting new products i read the entire literature on the bottle including its ingredients and found that it was quite different from other detangling conditioners I've used in the past.





                 


       













   










  The contents of this bottle is really good , shea butter, olive oil ,soy bean oil etc. but the best part is the fact that it's got No Parabens , No Sulfates and No Mineral oil or petrolatum. Now the consistency is creamy but non greasy and thats one more thing i like about it. The colour reminds me of a moisturiser i reviewed Here.










   I use this size above to detangle before i comb through and it goes a long way,the product is not heavy on my hair and it does soften my coarse hair so in addition to being a detangler, its serves as a moisturiser for me before sealing with coconut oil.

7 THINGS I AM THANKFUL FOR

       Happy New month people , it seems like yesterday when we were all outside with our fireworks ushering in the year 2013 and slowly,hours tunrned into days, the days turned into weeks ,weeks into months and now we are in the last month of the year waiting for 2014 to be ushered in once again.As you all know thanksgiving was last week and now with just 24 days to christmas,i dont know about you but for me , everyday is thanksgiving. Being thankful for just seeing and being part of a new and beautiful day is what i'm always thankful for . What are the things you are thankful for ? If you can't seem to think of anything at all,well you can be thankful for the following for starters.

1. WATER.

    Among The little things we take for granted ,water is one of them.Imagine living without good water to drink or water to clean up daily,That would be a disaster,Yet millions and millions of people around the world have fallen ill and have died due to lack of clean water.This is something we should all be thankful for.

2. POWER SUPPLY.

    As i child growing up, we sometimes studied at home using candle lights and today most homes cant even boast of candles how much more electricity,its quite unfortunate that with all the sources of energy which has been made available to us in the world  ,some countries are yet to experience electricity in their homes. Hospitals carry out surgeries in dark rooms, children complaining of poor eye sight from reading in the dark,the elderly dieing of cold because of lack of heating,If you have an hour of electricity available to you ,that's enough reason to be thankful.

3. NATURAL WEALTH.

 So you've been waking up to a bright and sunny day, and the grasses on your lawn  have recieved both rain and sunlight in moderation,and not waking up to witness a huge storm,typhoon,tsunami or an earthquake,This is the natural wealth which comes freely to you,It's something to be thankful for.

4.  (MOTD).

     Outfit of the day (ootd), Face of the day (fotd),fashion , beauty, makeup ,these are the things bloggers like me all like to talk about ,but what if you had no food to eat or share, i see a lot of starvation and farmine in some parts of the world, we see them  all on tv and even witness it around us, yet we have food daily on our tables to  share as our my meal of the day (MOTD). Be thankful not wasteful.

5. GOOD HEALTH.

   There is a saying that ''health is wealth '' ,good health care doesnt come cheap, even doctors can not predict the state of your health tomorrow and for some, there is no  access to health care.If you are not spending  your enitre wages towards healthcare bills or prescription drugs then you truly need to be thankful.If you have not had any reason to see a doctor or visit the clinic for the past weeks ,days or months,be grateful.

6. SHELTER.

       Have you got a roof above you? A place to eat ,sleep and play? If yes .Be Thankful.

7.  LIFE

   Are you breathing? Are you walking ? Can you see or Read this ? Did you wake up to see the last month of the year 2013? If Yes ,then go on your knees and be thankful to God because you are Alive.
    
   These are just a few of a million things i am grateful for , and will forever be .





                         WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR ?
