Product Review: Kinky Apothecary Whipped Batter & Grapeseed Oil

I got The Kinky Apothecary whipped batter and grapeseed oil during fashion week last year as a party favor from fashion house; GREY. I forgot about these in the whole excitement of fashion week and got around to using them early this year. The whipped batter is EVERYTHING.

Anyway, I’ve always wanted to have a pixie cut done but for some weird reasons, I thought it wouldn’t fit the frame of my face nicely.

Wash That Weave !




It’s my birthday month too, I’ll be a year older on the 11th, which is another Election Day coincidentally. Last month made this blog a year old! I think a giveaway is in order and I’ll let you guys know as soon as possible.

Now on to the matter of the day, if you’re one of the ladies that believe once you get a sew-in weave, you’re free from all wash day duities, stop reading this and apologize to your hair and weaves (seriously). Sometimes you pass by some females and the stench from the weaves just make you want to stop breathing (this used to be me 3 years back, welp). On Monday, I finished from school early and decided to wash my weave, I had been postponing this for about 2 days. It’s a short weave so you might want to make out a day to wash longer weaves or use the dry shampoo method; I’ll put up a post on that later.

DIY: Faux Bun 

For the most part of last week, I was leaving my hair in an Afro or a puff (because I’m not very much into styling), but I had a beauty event to attend in school and I wanted a decent look, so I went to my trusted source; hello YouTube! This style was so easy to pull off but not one I’d be doing regularly; because front hair issues.

50 Shades of Grey?

I’m typing this post in tears. Literally. Remember my faux locs from Tunmise Naturals Salon? It’s gone. The hair was terrible after just two weeks and I had to take it out the third week. I know I was going for the whole dreads ‘dada’ look but it was truly horrible, my front hair was a mess, the hair used to wrap was coming undone and despite my efforts to rewrap and burn; epic fail. If I ever consider doing faux locs in the future, I am so doing it myself! These pictures  were taken in the second week.

On Hair Types & Stereotypes


When I had my first big chop, I knew nothing about hair types and I would sit for hours watching Youtube videos of girls with 3C hair transform their curly hair into different amazing styles. After watching, I would sit in front of my mirror pulling and tugging at my thin, 4C hair and willing it to transform into what I had just seen to no avail. Fast forward to 6 months later, I came across another Youtube video that explained all about natural hair and hair typing, it was an aha moment for me, I started seeing and treating my hair differently after that.
