Tips to great hair in the tropics

Hey there Dear Reader and welcome to todays blogpost. .its a usual desire that is very much obvioous,we all fancy and adore great hair when we see one and we all dream of having/rocking a beautiful ,dark, healthy and full hair. .

And so basically this is what today's blog post is all about, maintaining and growing a dark healthy long hair most especially in the tropics where the sun can get so hot to as much as 30°C on some days. .

I have been doing a lot of research online and on the ground(& on my hair) and I have put together a list of must do's that'll definitely lead to positive feasible results over time. .
It is also worth noting that we all reacts to certain remedies and products out there and so the right mixture of the necessary proven blends and knowledge works for all of us differently. .

So let's get down to business shall we??
First of: I'd like to quickly list down the qualities of good hair. .

Good Quality Hair has the following characteristics:

Has Minimal Shedding.
Has a very smooth soft texture.
Hair Responds Well To Moisture.
Hair Scalp Is Free Of Dandruff.
Hair has Minimal Breakage.
Hair Locks Are Shiny.
Hair Has Elasticity.

All those characteristics are a major recipe to a healthy enviable hair and now my top tips to actually seeing such results include:

1. The Use of Olive Oil:- olive oil is a powerful emollient and this adds shine, bulk,and resilience to your hair. .with all those qualities it'll be hard and unwise to ignore or leave olive oil out of our hair. .

Tips:- Massage warm olive oil gently into your scalp for a few minutes. Cover your hair with a shower cap and allow the olive oil to soak in for 30 to 45 minutes. .Finally, shampoo your hair and rinse off.  For great results use this hair care treatment twice a week to enjoy a healthy and beautiful hair.

2. The use of Avocado Pear:-Trust me this works,whether it is the fruit, seed or its oil, avocado should be a part of your beauty care regimen(it works great for nail,skin & hair breakage/damage). The many beauty uses of avocado cannot be overlooked. .

Tips:- Make a hair mask with 1 mashed ripe avocado and 1 tablespoon each of olive oil and yogurt. Apply the mask on your damp hair. Put on a shower cap on for at least an hour, then rinse the mask out with lukewarm water. Use this hair mask once a week for amazing results. . You can also massage avocado oil into your scalp once or twice a week for some lustrous hair.

3.Green Tea:- Green tea is known to havr many beauty benefits. The high quality antioxidants in green tea prevents harmful free radical damage that contributes to hair breakage or damage.

Tips:-Simply drinking green tea 2 or 3 times a day will help you to enjoy beautiful hair(skin and nails). Also you can brew 3 to 4 cups of green tea, depending upon the length of your hair,allow the tea to cool, then pour the tea on your damp hair and allow it to sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo and dry off. Use this remedy 2 or 3 times a week for better results.

 4.Lemons:-Lemons are rich in vitamin C(an antioxidant that combats free-radical damage that can lead to aging and hair breakage). Lemons are even known to boost collagen production, which restores Hair/Skin elasticity to help maintain a smooth and vibrant appearance..

Tips:- Squeeze the juice of 2 lemons to 1 cup of water. After shampooing your hair, rinse your hair with this solution. Wait for 3 to 5 minutes, then rinse your hair with plain water. Use this remedy once or twice a week.

5. Coconut Oil:-Coconut oil contains many nutritional properties that support the health of your hair, skin as well as nails.. A study published 2004 on dermatitis reports that coconut oil is as effective and safe as mineral oil when used as a moisturizer. It shows significant improvement in repairing and reversing hair damage and breakage.

Tips:- Massage warm coconut oil into your scalp before going to bed. The next day, shampoo your hair as usual and air dry. Do this hair regime 2 to 3 times a week.   

There you have it guy's. . those are my top five go to tips that worked wonders for my hair and I am certain you are going to get amazing results too. .

Dear Diary: its me again and I've got something to tell you

                                             JANUARY 3RD ‘018

Hello Dear Diary Good day and Happy New year. .so first of all I had an amazing 2017 and for that I am really Grateful to God Almighty for preserving us all. .and Yeap you've got that right I sure am religious. .I mean what else would I rather believe in?? Yoga?? Of cos not,I get this unexplainable joy and inner peace anytime I talk to the Lord and I know he is always listening. .

You may ask how I know this?? Trust me I do. .
Anyways I am basically looking forward to a greater & fun filled new year. .i really want to do away with my “stuck up bitchy sorta image"(i guess it always gives some certain folks the wrong impression about me and the persona i am trying to portray). .

In other news Dear diary, I made a couple of new friends before the year ran out and as much as I would love to keep everything on a down low social wise,I will have no other choice than to be a little bit more open and expressive . .

Dear diary my inferiority complex and body insecurities seem to be making a rather ugly comeback, I have tried dieting and working out but I can't just seem to get the right Hourglass figure frame. .I have even cut down on my daily ration and sticking strictly to vegetables and proteins but the pounds do not seem to be any more lesser than when I started,even though it has just being only two weeks. .

Ughh!!! I am craving for some Mac & Cheese right now. . oh well: I cannot but stay positive, I mean look at the bright side the school semester is about to begin and obviously it is that time of the year again for the hustle and bustle of academic Life ( that's bound to help me out in cutting down the weight ). .

I need to start making my lists and flight arrangements though. . Dear Diary I am fervently praying that I get a slot in the schools scholarship hostel because I cannot just deal staying with Aunty Funke anymore: I do not enjoy the Air of Awkwardness at all and at this point in my Life I need some basic level of freedom and privacy. .

Come to think of It I do not think the Aunty tag is befitting for Funke. .in actual terms she is just my paternal first cousin (only that she is middle aged and still living the loose spinster life. .I'll be sure to drop more details on that later on, if only the rest of the extended family knew what Funke does and the men she brings around claiming to be business associates.

As much I really try to mind my business and turf, sometimes it is a little bit difficult especially when this her so called business associates start looking & talking to me funny in her absence. ..

Oh well.  So Dear diary I guess that's it for now   .Ahaa!! And Lest I forget i think i am finally in the friendzone with  jerome ( And Yeap: it is that same guy I have been tripping over and cyberstalking silently online. .) trust me He is very Nice and open minded. 

I think he may just have a thing for me though. .I wouldn't know for sure just yet,you know how this boys are. 

Anyways: I just thought that I should also mention that. .Although I am a little bit scared that my crush may grow into something unhealthy and I really don't want that. .

Thank You For Listening and Allowing me to write to you Dear Diary. .

Dear Diary: its me again and I've got something to tell you


Dear journal GoodEvening. .its me yet again “Becca Dolapo" of late I have being finding it a little bit difficult to document whats going on in my Life in this book of plain pages: I have even tried updating previous entries in my old journal, but it has proven to be a little bit difficult, but all good eventually it is going to happen and I hope my rather odd relationship with you works out for the better. .Well I will try and be brief with the latest happenings:

For one Dear diary I think I am in Love with someone. .I do not even know where to start with all the details of how I feel but I know with time the words are going to come out much more freely. .I am not one to just have a massive crush on another,but trust me he is different . .I Literally get major goose bumps and cold shivers down my spine by just the thought of him. .I need to be with this guy I say to myself. .but yet I am not able to muster enough strength or courage to approach and express my feelings to him. .

Lol the funniest thing is that I have never met him in person. You can as well classify it as one of those silly “online blood rush". .damn you Facebook why did you have to suggest him as a friend?? Ugh!! Ever since glancing at his profile and posts, the rest has being nothing short of Feeling's. .

Dear Diary what is wrong with me though?? I mean how can I start Lusting after someone from just a social media page for crying out loud.  Am I not supposed to be looking out for certain Personality trait's and the rest of that compatibility criterias. .

I absolutely have no idea. .but who knows it may just work out. .but not to worry dear diary I am not going to text him first. .at least for now I doubt if he is in any relationship as his “relationship status online" is currently: “single" . .phew! That' was a relief and also whilst scanning through his uploads I didn't come across any photo of Him with a girl of the sort. .that's a score for now I guess. .
So maybe just maybe I have a chance. .

Dear Diary don't think I don't want to text him first or nothing like that. .it's just that I don't want to seem or come across as desperate even though right now I am(well kind of). .I really want to get to know him. .screw that: I want to kiss him already. .Alright: “i am so desperate" jeez. .who is this guy that got me all up on cyberstalking. .

Anyways I can't let that cloud my mind right now. .I've got other things to worry about. .

Oh and Dear Diary I have been thinking a lot lately, I would really love to tone down my social media presence and all that. .I can't just deal no more on the crap and baggage that's going on. . .my mental state right now isn't in a position to even start processing no drama. So the plan is to stay far away from it as possible at least for the time being. .

So Dear Diary I have missed doing this with you and Hopefully this is like the start of a fresh new chapter and you know a journey towards Positivity, Pure joy, Happiness and Love.

Thank You for Literally Listening. .I feel much better already and can't wait to fill you in on whatever goes down with my new “Online Crush". .and other daily stuffs.
