whatsapp-image-2017-02-26-at-21-43-41

I got three bundles of 18″ hair from St. Thames hair in January, I been wearing it since last month and thought to do a review. I’ve curled, washed and rocked it enough so I think I have my full review ready! It came tightly cured but I combed it out by accident and the curl pattern loosened up a bit. dsc_1375

7 COCONUT OIL USES OTHER THAN HAIR

It doesn’t stimulate blood flow on its own like other oils, Neither does it encourage cell regrowth so it DOES […]

MAKEUP DETOX! 14 DAYS OF NO MAKEUP: SO FAR…

Hello! So if you follow me on twitter @LLynn_J you’d notice that I have been ranting about me trying to wear makeup only when ‘necessary’ or on important occasions, meaning an average of twice a week. Truthfully, the main reason for me doing this ‘challenge‘ is because of the weather lately, Just unrelatably Hot. Furthermore, […]

HOW I GREW MY NAILS IN 4WEEKS!

IMG_9789Hello all!

I miss you all, but I would soon be back to full blogging (two more weeks), I have a plethora of ideas and blog posts to upload with good news all round (thank God for that!) but until then, kindly manage this quick post on how I grew my nails, and yes in 4weeks, as seen above.

I’ve always struggled to keep/grow my nails as they always broke, BUT now I’ve found natural remedies that actually work! I have a friend who is from Belize and she has beautiful long nails, I asked her what she uses/used and she said “I just file them regularly and moisturise with coconut oil”. So I thought to follow suit.

I did my research and decided to also incorporate clean eating into my diet. So here’s what I did.IMG_4898

1. I ditched my £1 nail files from pound land, and bought a ceramic Sally Hansen nail file, costs (£5/N1500) but was worth every penny. It files your nail well, lasts longer and doesn’t leave the tip brittle or blunt.

2. Coconut oil: I apply coconut oil on my nails regularly, as often as I oil my hair, which is nightly( I just use the excess oil from my hair all over my cuticles and nail beds). It moistures and penetrates the skin and nail, improving shine.

3. Lots of water (improves overall body balance ), I drink lots of water normally because I believe thats what prevents breakouts and many health challenges.

4. The key ingredient: SPINACH! It contains irons and vitamins essential for hair and nail growth. I incorporated this into my diet via Efo-riro(Vegetable soup) and regular fruit smoothies every morning for 30days, and yes I’m sure that’s what grew them out and fast. Goodbye acrylic……

p.s I document everything to compare results. It helps to monitor progress, and proof to show that a particular regimen works…

xoxo

Tosin,

See you soon…
