Black Friday @ Edgars Zimbabwe

So last Friday I had my first Black Friday experience in Zimbabwe. With prices unrealistically sky rocketing I was quite excited when I saw the Black Friday advert by Edgars Zimbabwe. I really had to check it out so I went to Edgars, First Street.

We got there around 9:30 and there wasn’t really much in terms of sizes, considering that most shoppers were saying they had opened their doors at 9. I struggled to get my size 10, mostly huge sizes were left and some of the stuff really didn’t appeal to my taste. It seemed more like a clearance sale not a Black Friday discount.

The discounts ranged between 75% and 33.3%. I got a nice pair of heels for $53 dollars, their usual price is $80 ( it was quite difficult to get a nice size 6). I also bought two lovely tops at 50% off. I didn’t get as much as I expected but I guess it was better than nothing.

I was also quite annoyed by the till operator. She set aside some wide leg pants I wanted to buy just because they didn’t have a tag on. You’d think she would have looked for a pair with a tag but I guess that courtesy doesn’t exist in Zimbabwe, huh? I ended up leaving them (sigh). How was your Black Friday?

New Stash!!!

It’s been quite a while since I posted anything. My father passed away in October so I have been on quite a rollercoaster ride but I guess that’s life and we just have to try and move on no matter how hard it is. Anyway, the good news is that I recently refilled my hair stash and I have added a few new products. I really can’t wait to try them out.

It’s 10 months now since my Big chop and I am trying my best to establish a fixed hair regimen. I still use the same shampoo, Palmer’s coconut oil formula deep conditioning shampoo. I rarely use shampoo so I haven’t run out yet and my hair loves it so I don’t think I need to change brands anytime soon. I did however, get myself some Bentonite Clay. I have never clarified my hair and I want to try it out as soon as I take these braids out so we will see how that goes.

I finally got myself conditioner. I never had any conditioner. I would just go straight to deep conditioning. When I felt like conditioning my hair I often stole my son’s baby conditioner haha. I am going to be using Organics conditioner for dry and damaged hair. I got that at a bargain at Dischem for R80 for two 1 liter bottles. Only realized when I was back in Zimbabwe that I got a conditioner and a shampoo instead of two conditioners. What a bummer! The shampoo has sulfate so I’ll never use it but I am planning to sell it to someone who doesn’t mind so it’s fine, sigh!

For my deep conditioner, I replaced my Originals Africas Best Hair Mayonnaise with the Head & Shoulders Rinse off Treatment Masque (African Scalp & hair care). I also got one Dr Miracles Super Strength Deep Conditioning Satchet. If I like it, I might consider getting the bottle.

See, that’s actually something you can do before buying the whole lot. If you try out a deep conditioning pack you can then decide if you need more of it or not. Saves you a whole lot of change!

I also got myself some Afrobotanics products. I decided to try their Nehanda Moisturising Leave-in conditioner (only a Zimbabwean would figure why I love that name lol) and I replaced my dark & lovely au naturale afro moisturizing butter with their Asantewaa Super Hair Growth Creme.

For my scalp I am still using the Caivil Fusion Oil Hair Grow Essence, I really love it and I am not leaving it any time soon. I still have my extra virgin coconut oil for those DIY deep conditioners and hot oil treatments.

So there you go, I will keep you posted when I try the new products out. I am slowly figuring out what my hair loves. Once I do, I try my best to stick to it.

Happy hair growingđź’ś
