    Hair Mayonnaise by Africa’s BEST : Product Review

    When I first bought the product two of my friends recommended it. One because it makes your hair super soft, two because it helps with breakage. Hair mayonnaise is a protein treatment.  I have been using this product for the past 6 months and it is honestly amazing on my hair. It leaves my hair soft, well moisturized and it has helped with my hair breakage. Instead of long strands falling off my hair every two minutes I touch my hair, now only small pieces of hair fall off once in a while.  Normally I apply it after conditioning my hair on wash day for about 10 minutes. I wear a plastic…

The only downside is how awful the rice water smells when it’s fermented, some people add essential oils and even lemon or orange peels to make it smell better, but the end results are worth it all. In this blog post we are going to discuss the benefits of rice water, how it is…

    Natural HAIR

    Hello lovers! This post has been the most exciting for me because I love natural hair, if I had the patience to grow my hair I too would be rocking my natural hair, be it locks or an afro. Believe me I’ve had all these hairstyles at a very young age, but for the shortest time maybe a few weeks if not months, but never a year. I had my doubts and that lead me to always resorting to hair short. The most fascinating thing about natural hair is the fact that your hair is always growing, it grows in tiny spring like shape which leads to its dense look…
