Another brand introduction for you today, because you know I’m all about sharing. But first, I have got a little rant…
This Healthy Hair Journey (HHJ) is a real pain in the backside for me, honestly. I look at Dabs’ hair and think “I hate you, how do you do it”. But one this she always says is, it takes a lot of patience and mine is wearing thin at the moment. I am just not seeing the results I want, I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong and I am close to giving up! You know how hair-bloggers say “Find out what your hair likes as you go along and stick to it”, well my hair don’t know what she like :s. No but seriously, I am frustrated and I may have tried everything… Don’t get me started on the Hairfinity debacle. And then past couple of weeks, my hair started breaking for no reason so I thought I would up my ‘moisturisize and seal’ frequency to once every other day and I think it’s helping. Ok, now that I have let it all out, I shall not quit this journey…. yet. People say they hate the saying ‘HHJ’ but duuuude, better believe it is VERY appropriate, as this is a journey.
Staying in line with the theme of this post I’d like to share with you some products that I tried out last month.
Bahiyah Organics is a new organic haircare line that just hit the Nigerian market. Everything is made from scratch with 100% natural ingredients and all the contents are clearly displayed. I was sent a hair mask treatment and a shampoo bar. I absolutely adore the packaging, the tin case and that sack are just very original, love it!
|Bahiyah Organics ‘Deep Moisture Hair Mask’ – N4000*|
Not sure if this image grosses you guys out a bit, but I wanted to capture the texture of the product, so I ran my finger through it and I believe I failed… woefully lol. It’s almost like a sold consistency, would not describe it as creamy. To use this I warmed it up in a microwave just to get some ‘movement’ and added in a little bit of my ORS replenishing conditioner just to get even more ‘movement’ and to aid easy application. You could even add half a teaspoon size to any other mask you may have, as a booster. I LOVE how my hair feels after using this. It’s packed full of oils, including Shea Butter, which leaves your hair very moisturised for days after. Good for your hair, not so good for your bathtub and drains lol. So I will advise putting this in your hair and then heading to the salon, let them deal with it. At least that’s what I did the second time I used it lol. And it might seem like it’s not a lot of product in the can, but I got 3 uses out of this and it also comes in a ‘Large’ which is triple the size.
|Bahiyah Organics ‘Neem & Tea Tree Shampoo & Body Bar’ – N4000*|
This, I advise you use to get the mask out of your hair. Actually you must use this to get it out, as the conditioner is very concentrated.So yeah, take this along with you to the salon lol. I had never used a shampoo bar prior to this one and I think every shampoo should come in this form! It makes the precision of application so much easier, I love it! It is slightly drying so I will advice you use it once if you are just using it as a shampoo to cleanse your scalp/hair. But if you use it after the mask, once or twice is enough, depending on the amount of moisture you want to retain. You don’t want to strip your hair of all the mask’s benefits, but you do want to get all it out. So strike a balance with this one. I also love that it leaves a cooling sensation on your scalp, that’s that tea-tree in there. It can also be used on the body.
