Dark And Lovely Ultra-Cholesterol Conditioning Mask Review

Image
Most often, I use a deep conditioner that needs to be left on for more than 15 minutes and requires heat to work. However, I needed an alternative deep conditioner that I can fall on when am tied up and won't require time and heat in order to work. I was browsing through the product arsenal of The Game shop when I came across the Dark and Lovely Ultra-cholesterol conditioning mask 500ml by Softsheen Carson and decided to purchase it.

Oils In Ghana: Rapeseed Oil

Image
--> As more Ghanaian ladies are becoming aware of the herbs we have at our disposal, I've decided to add a series on oils to show case what we also have in order to achieve healthy hair over here. I'll start off with rapeseed oil also known as Canola oil. Canola oil  comes from a rapeseed plant. Rapeseed belongs to the mustard family (remember mustard in the bible?). 

It helps to repair damaged cells in the hair shaft and protects the hair from spilt ends.

Then, I took matters into my own hands when I couldn't take the nonsense unwarranted breakage I was always experiencing. Fortunately for us , Dr.Fomsky's series on why your relaxed just won't stop breaking  has come to solve this problem for you. She discusses the levels of breakage, how to curb it using deep conditioners, hair care practices that contribute to breakage and how to curb this problem.

Weave Failure: Not My Fault

Well, this isn't new for those who interact with us on facebook. If you've also noticed, the current protective style widget is gone but not forever. I failed and as much as I want to blame myself, I won't do so; I'd rather blame the weather.  I hate this HOT weather!
