A Newcomers Guide for the Nigerian Law School: Tips You must Know

Hi! You probably came here after seeing my Instagram post. I am sorry this I was published a bit late, my two phones fell inside a drum of water and I have been devastated. Enough about me.



Welcome! And congratulations on your successful admission into the Nigerian Law School, you made it! But, the journey is just beginning. Below are some tips I have prepared for you. As time goes on, I will continue to post some tips and hacks as well. If you have ANY questions whatsoever concerning your law school journey, please email me my email is readily available in the Blog’s Welcome page.

Things You Will Need

  • A set of functioning pens. You go fill forms tire!
  •  
  • About 18 coloured passports (make it 20). You must be dressed in your white and black which is the regulation wear. Usually, the Lagos campus insists that you take the passport in front of a blue background.
  •  
  • You will also need 10 black and white passports, as in, non-coloured passports (yes, you must also be in your regulation wear).
Tip: Tell the photographer to send copies of your passports, both the coloured and white and black to your email. This will come in the future. Yes, even after law school.

  • A plain black leather (no design or, patterned) cover shoe is a necessity. Unless, you’re a fearless bastard that has murdered humiliation countless times, so facing it this time around is no new thing.
  •  
  • Go through the regulation code and save yourself a lot of headache.
  •  
  •  For the ladies, you will need a plain/bland black leather with heel is a must for your first law dinner which will be coming up in December. I don’t know about other campuses, but Mrs. Ajoku, and Mrs. James don’t play games.
Stay glued to this blog as I will be publishing a several ways you can tie your muffler/scarf by the end of the month.
  • Don’t forget your documents, especially your medical reports. You will need your medical reports in order to be given accommodation in the hostel, issued a National Health Insurance Scheme Card.
  •  
  •  
  • Have a standby sum of N3000 for your registration. You will be running a lot of photocopies on your documents. The printing of some coloured documents, internet uploads, scanning of your documents. To photocopy a page in Lagos is N10, and when they use their generator, it costs N20. Of course, if your parents have the ching! this is not an issue to consider.
  •  
  •  
  • No need going with a pillow or mattress. You will be issued these. The only electrical appliance allowed is your Iron. You might want to wait till you get there to buy your buckets and gallons. In Lagos renting a Butta/drum costs N500 for the whole session. In this recession I’m not sure if the price is still the same, comment and let me know if it has changed, and if you are in another campus, how much they charge there. You will need to agree with your roommates on how the drum will be filled. You can’t rent it with your money, and be the only one fetching it every day for them to use. You didn't come to law school for that, a timetable will do. If they’re not interested, that’s fine, get a latch and padlock, the guys at the works department are more than willing to help you secure your water. In my time (2015/2016) water is pumped at 5 am and stops by 9 pm. This drum will hold useful water to flush the midnight pee.
  •  
  • You might want to know beforehand that, for the choice space and wardrobe in the room, first come first serve.

  •  Beware, not every material is relevant.

 


Social Tips
1)  Be wise in choosing your friends. Don’t let people chose you, choose them. The first three weeks of your stay in law school is not for making life long besties, but for you to get acquainted with the system, and the people you have found yourself in their midst. This point goes for roommates as well.

             i.    First, get to know who they are, and what ticks their clocks.
 
           ii.   Know what their aspirations, and result goals are. Ever heard the quote, if you want to fly with the Eagles, you can’t continue to scratch with the turkeys. This does not mean you should be a snorty idiot, no. Get the point, You can’t align yourself with someone that just wants a let my people go.


         iii.   You have to also shine your eyes to people who are there to use you. I will not explain this point, you made it through Jurisprudence, you are smart enough to decode this point.

         iv.    You might want to avoid being the camel that does the heavy work in your small group which the law school will attach you to. If you feel cheated, tell your group leader, and if you happen to be the group leader, report this to your staff adviser. You are in law school to learn not to do all your group’s work (in as much as it has its advantages which include being able to cover the text before the slackers that wait 2 weeks before bar finals) Nuff’ said. Don’t forget to leave the meeting after signing your attendance once the seemingly study discussion turns into a political rally, or who can argue the most of some sort ain’t nobody gat’ time for that. Time spent in such instances could be used sleeping, or catching up on the day’s work.

  •  Classes are for listening copying notes, and eating apples bits (once in a while, not every day). Trust me, if you’re in Lagos (9-5) you will understand the apple bit with time. I advise against chewing gum in class. Try to read the topic for the next day before going into the lecture hall. This will help you follow along, and not feel like a stranded tourist who is devoid of the language of the locals. Again, try to attend lectures and focus. That juicy gist can wait. By merely focusing, your ears can pick up a line or two that will save you in the Bar Finals.
  •  
  •  
  • Take law school easy. See it as a marathon race, and not a short distance race. If you start out like a 100M dash, you will crash. Take it easy, so that towards the end, you must have built enough momentum to cross the finish line as a victor and make your love ones proud.
  •  
  •  
  • Don’t get carried away photocopying beautiful nonsense. Photocopy only when it is necessary. The work your group produces is not the final say. The lecturer’s correction to that work, is the final say.
  •  
  •  
  • If you don’t understand something, ask your lecturers. They are there for you to consult after your texts. Beware of hearsay's.
  •  
  •  
  • God is everything in Law school. You cannot do anything without him. The race is not for the swift, mighty, or, those who can answer the most questions in class, or the lecturers pet.


If there are things you want me to cover or do not fully understand, comment them and I will definitely get back to you.





Do your best while holding unto to God buddy.



God willing, I will see you in my next post.
Love, Alexandra.

My Sleek Makeup (Powder) Review

Hi! Here is the post I promised yesterday on my instagram. So, I recently unboxed my makeup I ordered from Sleek a while ago. I found some the powders I bought a huge disappointment because they were a shade or two too light for me. However, someone advised me to apply, and wait for an hour or two before leaving the house, and the makeup will blend in. Since, the powders are not too light for me. I became a bit discouraged and sad because I was really expectant on the products, and, they seemed like my complexion on screen but different in real life.




 The powder has a nice feel on my face and blends perfectly well with my foundation. I love it, and totally recommend!


This is what it looks like at the back. Excuse my nails. I confess that I don’t rely solely on the puff. I use the puff as a sort of applicator, and use my powder brush to complete my look.







Watch out for my first YouTube video this week! I can't wait for you guys to see it. Subscribe to my YouTube channel so you're not left behind when I upload.




Have you ever been disappointed after ordering makeup and the colour you ordered was not your exact skin tone? How did you deal with it?

Happy New Month! Get to Know: Monday Ikechukwu


Happy New Month Everyone!! As earlier discussed with you guys here, this is the first of many posts to come. What do you think of our new blog template? 
I went to Balogun market yesterday to pick up a few necessities for mommy (and myself watch out for another post on the items I bought).
Without any hesitation, I knew that Mr. Ikechukwu would be the first person I would be interviewing for this blog.
                    
In December last year, I was desperate for makeup brushes, and my customer told me to come by his shop to pick up 12 brushes for N5000 (unbelievable, I know). As I was heading there, I stumbled upon Ikechukwu. He told me he’d sell 32 brushes for N3500! I almost fell down! (honey you know I like me a good bargain) this was mind blowing! I had not even told him the price my customer was selling it to me. He kept on pleading with me. Trust me, true Nigerian woman, I haggled with him to sell them for N2500 he refused and told me he was just moved to sell those brushes to me for that price. I believed him. My customer (former customer) had told me the 32 piece set sells for N8000. Looking back now, I imagine all the times that other person had swindled me off my hard earned money, and I thought they were good people.

I sat down with Monday Ikechukwu also know known as Mosco yesterday to interview him for LilyofNigeria’s interview segment. Again, I urge you to read this post here. The interview was mostly conducted in the Igbo Language, and translated to English, I hope you enjoy reading it.

Tell me about yourself?
I was born in Enugu state, in Agwu Local Government Area. I am 32 years old. I came to Lagos in 2006 in search of greener pastures. (Laughs)

Why did you choose this Line of Business?
I chose to deal with Ladies beauty products because it is good business, and it gives a lot of money.

(His wife laughs)

I import and export cosmetics, salon equipment, clippers, dryers, dryer accessories, general beauty goods. I also originals, as well as knock offs. It all depends on how deep your purse is, and what you want.
At this stage, I look around his shop, it isn’t wide, but a narrow and long one filled with all sorts of products.

What is your definition of success?
Philanthropy. I urge him to explain what he means.
If you are rich, popular and don’t help people, how will people know you are rich or successful? You have to open arms to assist people. You must not be rich to help people. For example, churches and people who advertise themselves are going about it the wrong way. If you preach, help the sick in any way you can, assist the needy people will know you are successful.

Have you ever been in a situation where you wondered why am I a Nigerian?
To ever ask that question is to ask God why am I alive, and that to me, is ingratitude. That thing that happened to you wherever you are that made you think that, could have happened to anyone else, Nigerian, or, non-Nigerian.

What is your happiest experience?
Hmm… The fact that I am alive today. The mere gift of life to me is a blessing in itself.

Where do you see yourself in five Years time?
In five years time, I see myself with two children (smiles), and my business will have expanded.

If you could advise a group of people, what would you say to them?
Let me tell you a story. A friend of mine won the NairaBet lottery of more than five hundred thousand Naira. I advised him to invest the money in a suitable business, buy land, or invest in something that he could hold unto in the future. He did not listen to me. He went ahead to use the money to rent a house for a lady.  Now, he is about to go back to the village because his business has crashed, and failed. He has nothing to hold unto.
My advice especially as Nigeria continues in this recession is that, people should learn skills, and try to start from somewhere. Don’t give up on life, keep struggling and God will see you through.

Thank you Mr. Ikechukwu. What are your final words for this interview?
 
I told him about my awesome readers.

God bless you all, and keep you alive.



Mr Ikechukwu can be found at his office in 14 Bankole Street, Balogun, Lagos Island, Lagos state. He can also be reached via any of his phone lines:
08060947865, 08131684387, 0909148006.

I didn't apply any makeup because you don't wear makeup to go to Nigerian market

Wish List Five Aldo Fun Handbags for Work Inspired by Fall

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.” ― Robert Frost
Hi Everyone! Welcome to my new blogpost! I am so excited to share some things with you before getting down to today’s main post. To the glory of God, I passed my Bar exams! If you have read this post, and this post you already are up to date with my previous journey as a law student.

Fear of missing out? No need to worry anymore! Sign up to stay connected:

I am interning at the Ben Nwabueze Centre and this internship has been quite an eye opener for me. I am so happy!
Y’all know me by now. I love to scout the internet. And, seeing that I am about to start work, I went looking for some fun professional handbags for work. Not that I needed to buy one ASAP but you know how ladies are, a little looking around never hurt anyone, plus Black Friday is around the corner so...




The first one is the Dorola Bag.
This bag comes in two colours. Black/White one which I prefer, and, the Fuschia coloured one. Where do I even start? Is it the faux fur pom-pom, or, the big goo goo, Owl like eyes? This bag is great if you work in a not so uptight environment/firm. 
TIP: I feel it’s a great accessory that will compliment a black suit.



The Cormak Bag:
If you have plans to meet up with the girls after work, this bag will serve that purpose. I love the shimmery details, and the shape (it does remind me of a certain bag by another brand, but the shine-shine as Nigerians like to call it makes it stand out). 

The bag comes in Gold and Champagne colours. I prefer the Champagne coloured one. It’s definitely not a laptop carrier, but will comfortably carry your small journals, and to do list, pens, and beauty touch ups. I prefer the traditional double hands located by the side of the handbag. I despise that ugly chain like thing that makes it a cross body bag as seen in this picture. For $48 USD, this bag is all yours. What are your thoughts?



This next bag is very professional.  

The Gilliam Bag comes in six different colours. It comes in Bordeaux, Cognac, Green, Taupe, Midnight Black and Fuschia. Call me boring, but if you like to play safe like me, then, you’d love the Bordeaux and Fuschia the most as well!

The bags are all on a 50% sale for $30 except for the Bordeaux which is still $60 the usual, cry me a river. I see myself fitting in my Laptop in this bag. The texture of the bag is fine and kissable (I know, weird).



The Olilidia Bag is one of those petite cute bags for those days you don’t have much to carry to the office. I love its chicness and simplicity.

For some reason, I’m not too keen on the pink coloured one. However this bag costs $50(that’s a lot of money).



Game Bag: 
                                           Side view of the black bag


One word that best describes this bag is playful. I love the floral details on it which makes it stand out from some of the so called professional bags for work which are to say the least, bland. However, this black one is more professional, than the Bordeaux coloured one

at least that’s what I think. It can also be used for non-work outings as well as seen below. What are your thoughts?






These sandals were not initially a part of the post, but I just thought I should share them with you. Most women pull off their shoes after a long day at work and wear sandals home(especially those who use public transportation).

The Edden sandal comes in four colours: Cognac, Gold, Black, and Natural Print (more like Animal Print to me). 

I love this Cognac one more because, I imagined it as an almost a neutral colour against my feet. The gold coloured one I like also.

Generally, this sandal reminds me of a heavily embellished silver sandal I was emotionally attached to some years ago. Aldo has created a wide range of sizes for your feet, so there’s one for every girl out there, from size five to size 11. Cool yeah? Well, I’m in a slight dilemma, and, feel the price could be slashed a little, because of the economic situation, but this is Aldo, and the make stuff that stands the test of time so…I think I’ll wait for Black Friday.




That’s it for today people, come back soon. Don’t forget to share this post on your social media channels if you enjoyed it. Subscribe to be the first person informed of my next post. And, don’t forget to follow me on Snapchat and Instagram, my username is lilyofnigeria

I Did my Eye Brows for the First Time! Here's a Quick Everyday Eye Brow Tutorial (for Thick Brows)

Hi Everyone! I'm super excited to share this post with you because it means so much tome. Prior to September 27, 2016, I had NEVER tried doing my eyebrows. If you follow me on instagram you would have seen a preview of this post in the picture I posted the same day I carried out the experiment. 
Even after watching tons of YouTube videos, I had this thing at the back of my mind that, if I carved or trimmed my eye brows, I'd end up looking like a creature of the deep. I know, crazy yeah?! When I was a little girl, I used a razor to secretly(because my mother would beat the hell out of me), trim the edge of my eye brows which pretty much didn't grow back (do not try that at home if you are a child reading this, totally dangerous). 



Well, I woke up with a zeal to learn how to do this eyebrow thing not because I felt pressured to, but because, I jut felt I was ready to give makeup a  go at this point in my life.

Here are the results...

I started by brushing my eyebrow with a spoolie (a specialized eye brow brush very similar to a mascara wand). You can use your dried up mascara wand if you want to, this is what I used for this post(and I intend to continue until I get a good spoolie). 

Then, carefully use a razor to trim the excess hair outside the shape you intend for it.

In the picture below, I haven't done anything to my right eyebrow, can say it's in it's original form after I have partially trimmed it.

The next step is to draw a thin line with your eye pencil over and under the eye brow, giving them the shape you intend for them to take as seen in this picture(I used these fuchsia pink arrow pointers as a guide for you).


Then, the next step is to start filling in the eyebrow. This stage is quite tricky, you don't want to end up like a wildebeest(that was my main fear after trimming my brows). You might have figured, I love slightly thick eyebrows similar to my natural brows(I didn't trim off much of my brows), and those of Cara Delevegne.
My Discovery: The more you fill, and more pressure you apply to the eye pencil the thicker the outcome.

After filling, you need to brush your eyebrows again, and, put them in the shape you desire, if they have scattered. And, use a thin brush to line a lighter shade of foundation on the top and bottom of the eyebrow. The brush is seen in the first picture of this post, in this instance, I used one of my brow brushes from my Bobbi Brown set and can be purchased here. I used the Sleek Oil Free Creme to Powder two shades lighter than my skin tone for this.



The final look. 
Now, while this might not be the best brows you have ever seen, this is my first attempt, and I am very, much excited :)
What eyebrow tips do you suggest I should incorporate next time?

Before I forget, this is not a sponsored post or an advert. To collaborate with me in the future, check out my contact Page and shoot me an Email.



Your comments mean a lot to me, what do you think of the final look? 
Thank you visiting today, I hope you come back soon. And, please share this post so that others get to see it as well, once again, thank you.

Three Things I have learnt from Kim Kardashian

Hello Everyone! Welcome to another segment of Lifestyle Friday :)
Now, some of you already have a stereotype/biased view of this woman, I used to too. Over the years, I have taken note of Kim. Kimberly Noel Kardashian-West has a lot of flaws, and an atrocious past to some, a la sex tape. What can we say, she is shameless!

However, Kimmy has some good things about her too…

  • Well, she loves her family, and, stands up, protects, and spends on the ones she loves. Like standing up for her husband Kanye in this Taylor Swift saga.
  • I have learnt to accept my body, and accept myself for who I am.

  • Kim is an avid business woman. She has broken some boundaries as an entrepreneur. And, whether you like to accept it or not, her business mid is lit! She has turned virtually anything into a money dispensary.

MY RELAXED HAIR REGIMEN/ROUTINE

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Sometimes, I just look up, smile, and say, "I know that was You God, thanks."-Unknown.

Hi Everyone! It's another beautiful day, I hope you are enjoying yours.
Today I decided to do a hair regimen/routine post here on the blog for you, because I get asked a lot of times what I do to maintain, and, grow my hair. Honestly, I give God all the credit for my hair texture, quality, and, length. I follow a lot of hair bloggers, and continuously do a lot of research.Have you read this post yet?

Fear of missing out? No need to worry anymore! Sign up to stay connected:

At least, once a month(usually on the last Sunday of the Month), I wash my hair with a drying shampoo aka shampoo with sulfate. It helps strips off residue of oil and hair care products I apply. This helps to enable my hair to breathe. I also do this if I feel my hair seems choked up after a full assessment. Think of it as makeup. All the hair care products you apply are like make, and at the end of the day, you clean it off it with a wipe/cleanser to enable your skin breathe.

After washing, I use a conditioner, and leave it for about 30 minutes, and wash it off.
I use an old Tee Shirt to dry out the dripping water from my hair and allow it to dry on its own, naturally. I do not use a hair dryer. I don't even own a tangible one.
Just before my hair dries out completely(but still damp/slightly humid), I apply an essential oil, like Extra Virgin Olive Oil(for my Naija readers, this is aka your anointing oil), or Coconut Oil, or any other oil you may have, like Eucalyptus oil, Argan oil, etc. Then, I allow it to just dry undisturbed. Once dry, I tie up my hair in a satin or silk scarf. By the way Ladies, which side you belong to, the scarf, or the bonnet? Tell me which one, and, why. The most convincing comment has a prize.

Usually, on Wednesday every week, I Co-Wash my hair. For beginners, this simply means washing your hair with a very good conditioner alone, as opposed to a shampoo. If you want me to do a post on how I co-wash my hair comment below.

Once in two weeks, try as much as possible to deep condition my hair, using organic products/produce I find around the house(I'm trying to make it once a week). This is very different from co-washing. I confess that I can be a bit if a scientist sometimes :) Once an idea pops up in my mind, I go straight to google and check out if anyone has done it before, the pros, and, cons of such a product or produce. Then, I head out to my lab, and get mixing. Feel free to ask me about any hair mixtures you've heard about, or are about trying. And, which ones work the best for you? You can also tell me on twitter by tweeting at me @LilyofNigeria 

Also, I moisturise, and seal in the moisture using an essential oil once in two-three days. Most times, I just stick to good ol' shea butter.

Every Sunday, I wash my hair with a non drying, a shampoo without sulfate, or paraben. Every six months, I trim out the tips of my hair. And, every now and then, if I make out time to search out for split ends by myself(it took me years to learn this skill), and trim them out. Please, go to a professional to trim out your split ends for you. DO NOT DO THIS yourself if you have not done this before, also avoid doing this if you do not have sufficient training for this.

The only time I have gone to the salon since April is to relax my hair. And I am very firm with my choices there. The relaxer cannot stay on my hair for more than a certain period. I texturize my hair. I don't allow them apply the relaxer to the tips of my hair, on the roots, and a good part of the strands. I go with my own kit. I don't allow them apply setting lotion to my hair, it turns it brown(Lord knows what they mix in that thing). I use my hair lotion instead of a setting lotion.

The cycle continues from the first step in the routine which is washing with a drying shampoo. You have to create time for your hair, show it love, and attention. And, most importantly, pray for your hair. I know someone who's hair wasn't doing well, at all. She anointed her hair, and talked to her Heavenly Father aka Jesus Christ about it, and, today I kid you not, her hair is shoulder length(it should be more by now, it's been over a year since I saw her).

Seek out a particular routine that will work out for you according to your schedule, and stick to it. You must not table it after mine.


These are some of the products I use:



This is the coconut oil I use. A family friend of mine and his wife makes it from 100% coconut. It's their family business, and has the backing of the government because of how authentic it is! The strong coconut scent hits you once you open it up. [They also make the softest, yummiest coconut bread. I don't even eat bread, my mommy brought this bread back one day and almost put my hatred for bread to shame! I had to gba break(stop) after the fourth piece, a taste will convince you. Shout out to Uncle Chukwuma and his wife! I'm so proud of you.
PS: We use some of the oil from the bigger bottle to make coconut rice.
 I didn't zoom in because you guys might think it's an advert. But it isn't. I will be posting a full picture on my Instagram page. So to see their full details, click here
 This is what the small bottle looks like. I've almost used up mine. It has lasted for about six months.



This Mamiya Organics product, is a two in one conditioner, and, shampoo. It allegedly has black castor oil, and avocado oil. I use to get out any residue from my hair. It leaves my hair silky, and smooth, as opposed to some knock off. It does not change the colour of my hair(I used one shampoo that turned my tips brown a long time ago, never again). I use this product once a month. It's actually my first bottle, and, so far it's great! It's really thick, and has a smooth white texture. If you want to see what it looks like, let me know, I'll show you what it looks like on Snapchat.
I will definitely be sticking to it, until I find something that can surpass it's quality.

 Remember that very expensive Indian Hemp hair cream made of glass, that only posh kids used in High school(boarding house). They are the same ones that make this product. I bought it for N1000 at Balogun Market. Tweet Me for details later. 
Mehn shout out to my High school guys from Beulah, Sammie & co. *InsertWeepingLaughingEmoji* (I'm almost rolling off my bed as I type this). Story time. I know you will kill me, but I love you all. Here's what happened, one night after lights out in the guys hostel, a particular group of boys were still awake, discussing how to grow their hair. And, someone suggested Indian hemp. Now if you went to a Christian school, and had sweet Ete as your Vice Principal, you will know that certain topics were off limits, especially after lights out. Now, what they didn't know was that Mr. Ete was by their window listening, and totally misunderstood them to mean that they wanted to try out Indian Hemp! LOL! Their punishment went down in history!
I will definitely buy this product again because, I enjoyed it. It means what is stated in the description. My hair is moisturised, and healthy. Also, I will be buying their conditioner, and shampoo since it's sulfate, and paraben free, to use as my weekly shampoo, and for co-washing respectively.  Yaay for Kuza.




Just before you finish reading, I joined Snapchat not too long ago, add me up @lilyofnigeria I do some tutorials, and, reviews there as well as, some of my day to day activities.
I have a good feeling I will see you sooner than later in my next post. Keep your eyes glued to this blog :)
Peace, and Love,
Alexandra.

CITATION DU JOUR: Parfois, je viens de regarder jusqu'à, sourire, et dire, - Unknown "Je sais que ce que Dieu vous, merci.".

Salut tout le monde! Il est une autre belle journée, je l'espère que vous appréciez le vôtre.
Aujourd'hui, je décidé de faire un régime de cheveux / post-routine ici sur le blog pour vous, parce que je me pose beaucoup de fois ce que je fais pour maintenir et, pousser mes cheveux. Honnêtement, je donne à Dieu tout le crédit pour ma texture des cheveux, de la qualité, et, longueur. Je suis un grand nombre de blogueurs de cheveux, et continuellement faire beaucoup de research.Have vous lisez ce post encore?

Pardon Me, cette photo a été prise dans la soirée, au coucher du soleil. Voilà pourquoi il est un peu sombre.


Au moins, une fois par mois (habituellement le dernier dimanche du mois), je me lave les cheveux avec un shampooing de séchage aka shampooing avec du sulfate. Il aide les bandes les résidus de pétrole et de produits de soins capillaires I sont applicables. Cela aide pour permettre à mes cheveux de respirer. Je fais aussi ce si je sens mes cheveux semble étouffé après une évaluation complète. Pensez-y comme le maquillage. Tous les produits de soins capillaires que vous appliquez sont comme make, et à la fin de la journée, vous nettoyez-le avec un nettoyant essuyez / pour permettre à votre peau respirer.

Après le lavage, j'utiliser un climatiseur, et le laisser pendant environ 30 minutes, et rincez.
J'utilise un vieux T-shirt à sécher l'eau coulait de mes cheveux et laisser sécher sur elle-même, naturellement. Je ne l'utilise un sèche-cheveux. Je ne suis même possède pas un tangible.
Juste avant mes cheveux se dessèche complètement (mais encore humide / légèrement humide), je demande une huile essentielle, comme Extra Virgin Olive Oil (pour mes lecteurs Naija, ceci est aka votre huile d'onction), ou l'huile de coco, ou de toute autre huile que vous peut avoir, comme l'huile d'eucalyptus, huile d'argan, etc. Ensuite, je lui permettre de tranquille juste sec. Une fois sec, je noue mes cheveux dans un satin ou soie foulard. Par la façon dont les femmes, de quel côté vous appartenez, le foulard ou le capot? Dites-moi que l'on, et pourquoi. Le commentaire le plus convaincant a un prix.

Habituellement, le mercredi chaque semaine, je co-laver mes cheveux. Pour les débutants, cela signifie tout simplement se laver les cheveux avec un très bon conditionneur seul, par opposition à un shampooing. Si vous voulez que je fasse un post sur la façon dont je co-laver mes cheveux commentaire ci-dessous.

Une fois en deux semaines, essayez autant que possible de conditionner profondément mes cheveux, en utilisant des produits biologiques / produis, je trouve autour de la maison (je suis en train de le faire une fois par semaine). Ceci est très différent de la co-lavage. Je vous avoue que je peux être un peu si un scientifique parfois :) Une fois qu'une idée surgit dans mon esprit, j'aller directement à Google et vérifier si quelqu'un l'a fait avant, les pros, et les inconvénients d'un tel produit ou de produire . Puis, je me dirige vers mon laboratoire, et d'obtenir le mélange. Ne hésitez pas à me poser des questions sur tous les mélanges de cheveux que vous avez entendu parler, ou êtes à essayer. Et, ceux qui fonctionnent le mieux pour vous? Vous pouvez aussi me dire sur twitter par tweeting me @LilyofNigeria

Aussi, je hydratent et scelle dans l'humidité en utilisant une huile essentielle une fois en deux-trois jours. La plupart du temps, je viens de coller à ce bon vieux beurre de karité.

Every dimanche, je me laver les cheveux avec un non séchage, un shampooing sans sulfate, ou paraben. Tous les six mois, je l'assiette sur les conseils de mes cheveux. Et, chaque maintenant et puis, si je fais des temps de chercher pour la fente se termine par moi-même (il m'a fallu des années pour apprendre cette compétence), et coupez-les. S'il vous plaît, rendez-vous à un professionnel pour couper votre fourchus pour vous. NE PAS faire vous-même si vous ne l'avez pas fait cela avant, aussi éviter de faire cela si vous ne disposez pas d'une formation suffisante pour cela.

La seule fois où je suis allé au salon depuis Avril est de se détendre mes cheveux. Et je suis très ferme avec mes choix là-bas. Le défrisage ne peut pas rester sur mes cheveux pendant plus d'une certaine période. Je texturer mes cheveux. Je ne permets pas les appliquer le défrisant aux conseils de mes cheveux, sur les racines, et une bonne partie des brins. Je vais avec mon propre kit. Je ne permets pas les appliquer la mise en lotion pour les cheveux, il transforme brun (Dieu sait ce qu'ils mélangent dans cette chose). J'utilise mes cheveux lotion au lieu d'une lotion de mise.

Le cycle se poursuit à partir de la première étape de la routine qui est le lavage avec un shampooing de séchage. Vous devez créer le temps pour vos cheveux, montrez l'amour et attention. Et, surtout, priez pour vos cheveux. Je connais quelqu'un qui est les cheveux ne faisait pas bien, pas du tout. Elle oint ses cheveux, et a parlé à son Père céleste alias Jésus-Christ à ce sujet, et, aujourd'hui, je ne plaisante pas, est ses cheveux longueur d'épaule (il devrait être plus maintenant, il a été plus d'un an depuis que je l'ai vu).

Cherchez une routine particulière qui va travailler pour vous en fonction de votre emploi du temps, et de s'y tenir. Vous ne devez pas déposer après le mien.

Ce sont quelques-uns des produits que j'utilise:
Ceci est l'huile de noix de coco que j'utilise. Un ami de la famille de la mine et de sa femme, il est de 100% de noix de coco. Il est leur entreprise familiale, et a le soutien du gouvernement à cause de la façon dont il est authentique! Le parfum de noix de coco forte vous frappe une fois que vous l'ouvrez. [Ils font aussi le plus doux, yummiest pain de noix de coco. Je ne mange même pas de pain, ma maman a apporté ce pain revenir un jour et presque mis ma haine pour le pain à la honte! Je devais pause gba (arrêt) après la quatrième pièce, un goût saura vous convaincre. Shout out à l'oncle Chukwuma et sa femme! Je suis si fier de toi.
PS: Nous utilisons de l'huile à partir de la plus grande bouteille pour faire du riz de noix de coco.

Je ne zoome parce que vous avez peut penser qu'il est une petite annonce. Mais il est pas. Je vais poster une image complète sur ma page Instagram. Donc, pour voir leurs détails, cliquez ici

Ceci est ce que la petite bouteille ressemble. Je l'ai utilisé presque la mienne. Il a duré environ six mois.

Ce produit Mamiya Organics, est un deux en un climatiseur, et, shampoing. Il a prétendument l'huile de ricin noir, et l'huile d'avocat. Je l'utilise pour sortir tout résidu de mes cheveux. Il laisse mes cheveux soyeux et lisse, par opposition à certains knock off. Il ne change pas la couleur de mes cheveux (j'ai utilisé un shampooing qui a transformé mes pointes brunes il y a longtemps, jamais). J'utilise ce produit une fois par mois. Il est en fait ma première bouteille, et, jusqu'à présent, il est super! Il est très épais, et a une texture lisse et blanc. Si vous voulez voir à quoi il ressemble, laissez-moi savoir, je vais vous montrer à quoi il ressemble sur Snapchat.
Je vais certainement être coller à elle, jusqu'à ce que je trouve quelque chose qui peut surpasser sa qualité.

Rappelez-vous que la crème de cheveux chanvre indien très coûteux en verre, que les enfants ne chics utilisés au lycée (pensionnat). Ils sont les mêmes que ceux qui font de ce produit. Je l'ai acheté pour N1000 à Balogun marché. Tweet Me pour plus de détails plus tard.

Mehn crier à mes gars du secondaire de Beulah, Sammie & co. * InsertWeepingLaughingEmoji * (je suis presque rouler sur mon lit que je tape ceci). L'heure du conte. Je sais que vous allez me tuer, mais je vous aime tous. Voici ce qui est arrivé, une nuit après l'extinction des feux dans le gars auberge, un groupe particulier de garçons étaient encore éveillés, discuter comment faire pousser leurs cheveux. Et, quelqu'un a suggéré le chanvre indien. Maintenant, si vous êtes allé à une école chrétienne, et avait sweet Ete comme vice-principal, vous saurez que certains sujets étaient hors limites, surtout après l'extinction des feux. Maintenant, ce qu'ils ne savaient pas que M. Ete était par leur écoute de la fenêtre, et totalement leur mal compris comme signifiant qu'ils voulaient essayer chanvre indien! LOL! Leur punition est entré dans l'histoire!

Je vais certainement acheter à nouveau ce produit parce que, je l'ai apprécié. Cela signifie ce qui est indiqué dans la description. Mes cheveux étaient hydratée, et en bonne santé. Aussi, je vais acheter leur climatiseur et Shamoo depuis sa sulfate et sans paraben, à utiliser comme mon shampooing hebdomadaire, et respectivement co-lavage. Yaay pour Kuza.

Juste avant que vous avez terminé la lecture, je me suis joint Snapchat pas trop longtemps, ajoutez-moi @lilyofnigeria je fais quelques tutoriels, et, avis là aussi bien que, certains de mes activités quotidiennes.
