At the start of my hair journey, I was a bit confused on what products were best suited to my hair. By reading hair blogs, I was able to make my choice based on the products that had overwhelming positive review. What made it a bit harder was the unavailability of some of these products within most supermarkets within Lagos. What did I do? I placed an order for products I couldn’t find on Amazon and my brother-in-law brought it down from the U.S.
If you’re in Lagos and have commenced your hair journey, you can get the following products at the following stores:
- Elasta QP Moisturizing Butter
- Mane N’ Tail Detangler
- Self grip hair rollers
- Trigger spray bottles
- Profectiv growth leave-in strengthener
- Organic Root Stimulator Replenishing Moisturizing Conditioner
- Jamaican Black Castor Oil
- Giovanni Leave-in Conditioner
- Grapeseed oil
Check HairCity to place an order.
Today, my focus is on moisturizing. The benefits of moisturizing cannot be overemphasized. Prior to my hair journey, I always had dry and brittle hair due to lack of moisture. Since I commenced, my hair is a lot better. If you’re clueless about the whole process, let me educate you. Once I’m done with my pre-poo and deep conditioning process, the next step is to allow my hair to dry till its’ damp and divide it into four sections as depicted in the picture. Then I bring out my Tresemme Split Hair Remedy and scoop a bit on my hands, rubbing it on the hair ends as seen in the next picture. Once I’m done, I scoop out a bit of Elasta QP Moisturizing and rub it along the length of my hair from root to end. Finally I seal my hair ends with either grape seed oil or castor oil to lock in moisture. Oh! I forgot…once my hair is dry, I section my hair and use an applicator bottle to apply castor oil to my scalp. I can go for the next 3days before moisturizing my hair again. My hair has a healthy sheen and its’ soft and fluffy.
