Hair Update and plans

I realized I have not posted an update on my hair recently and decided to post one. I had box braids done around the second week in March and took them out on the 21st of April after a little over 6 weeks.

I was a bit worried about my edges because the braider made them too tight and I had to take down the edges after a couple of days. Overall, my hair thrived even with my being lazy with hair care.

I have a three new products added to my arsenal; ORS replenishing conditioner, cantu Shea butter leave-in and (finally!) a sulfate free shampoo, CON Argan oil moisture and shine shampoo.

Last weekend I decided to protective style for a few months, I'm thinking three months, because it is something that has always worked for me. In line with this I am starting a personal protective styling challenge and will provide more details on that in a separate post.

For the next month my protective style will be wigs. The wig I am currently wearing is a short one with bangs shown in the picture below.


  1. Hi. I would love to know where exactly you got your ORS replenishing conditioner. Thanks.

    1. Hi Nafisat. I got it from a store inside Unilag, Yem-Yem; however I have also seen this at Shoprite (lag) as well. ORS products are pretty accessible here in lag/NG so I'm sure you will be able to find it where hair care products are sold. I got it for N910 by the way. Hope this helps.

  2. Long and beautiful hair has always been my dream. I've tried a lot of shampoos, conditioners and other recipes for increasing hair growth, but my hair was not so thick and healthy, so I had to cut it again and again. Eventually I understood that the best effect comes when nutrition is done from inside out. Basic nutrients should come from food, but there are seasons when we strongly suffer from the lack of vitamins. Recently I've started taking nutritional supplement Hair Gain Formula by Military Grade. I must say, result was above expectations! I detect lots of short hair on my head and it grows quicker. I hope my dream of a long hair would soon come true.
