Today, let’s speak on a subject that affects you and I – labelling!
My daughter was given a pack of biscuits which I found (intact) in the car. It was one of these really cheap biscuits that you can purchase for about NGN10. Even though I knew not to expect much, I took a look at the packaging to read the ingredients list. Before I could do that though, this caught my eye:
1 Pack = 1 glass of milk*
I was intrigued! Really? I could eat this and literally not need to drink milk? These had to be healthy biscuits!! But then, notice the asterisk? Not a lot of people usually do. I turned the pack around to find what it meant:
*One pack of 33g Milk Biscuits has Calcium equal to 175ml glass of milk
As you know, the Lagos Natural Hair meet up will be on the 22nd of November! I gave you some information here on what to expect. There was too much information to cram it all into one post, so here we go again!
We’ve teamed up with a Dr. Agility (lovely name, right?) founder of Purejoie Consulting to hold a Medical Hair Clinic at the meet up. This is actually very important as a lot of people that have hair issues actually have underlying medical problems which prevent their hair from growing. Asking for help from hair bloggers is not always the way to go. A doctor or trichologist can turn your hair story around and maybe even save your life in the process.
One of our indigenous Nigerian products that seems to be getting a lot of face time is the humble black soap. Actually, this is something that is used in many many African countries although the recipes differ from country to country and even state to state within a country. I can tell you that the Igbo black soap is nothing like the Yoruba one. There is a distinct difference between the two from the feel to the smell. All the same, African Black Soap has several similarities. (more…)
As promised, here is more information about the 9th edition of our Lagos Natural Hair meet up! It is the last one of the year so we are going to make it count! Our theme this time is Maintaining Hair Length!
Last year, I put up a post of school supplies that you would need to set up your child with healthy school lunches.
As a follow up, I would like to start a series on healthy school lunch ideas where I share with you what typically goes into my daughter’s school lunch bag. Hopefully this will help those that need ideas. I know it will help me step up my game as well.
Pomade: /pəˈmād,pəˈmäd/Wikipedia describes Pomades as a scented ointment applied to the hair or scalp.
My friend asked me to make her a pomade recently (I make products on demand for friend and family – when I have time). She wanted something that would help the hair on her temple grow. Something that would stimulate growth.
While I have never been of the school of thought that products are the no. 1 solution to hair growth, there are some ingredients that do help to stimulate hair growth and I made sure to include some.
