My Hair | Week Long #NaturalHair Afro

Hey guys,
It's official #FroFriday in Curly Haired Girl parlance.
This week, I have been wearing my hair in a fro and I have totally loved every single day of it as it gave me an opportunity to be different. 
Did I mention that I resumed work on Monday and so have been wearing the fro to work (don't you just love working in an Ad Agency)?

I shared all the pics on Instagram, not all of them are hawt so pls no sneers, lol. Some are quite nice actually. I also determined that I would make an effort to start wearing makeup to work always and so far it has turned out right. I will share some of the products I have been wearing on my face and what I used for LOCing my hair too. It has been well moisturised all through this week despite been very well exposed to the elements and drying airconditioning in the office.
First day of the week monday.
Face - Fashion Fair True Finish Refining foundation in Loving Mocha (can't wear the Khuraira foundation again cos I've gone darker). BM|Pro 600 single e/s as blush, Studio makeup bronzing powder to highlight & MAC Shadester to contour.
Eyes - Revlon Colorstay quad I got from Konga ages ago (I reviewed it here). Packed it on this time around and the colours showed up just the way I like it. Color Tatoo kajal & Khuraira mascara for my lashes
Lips - my usual, lol - light brown liner, MUD Rose Clay in the middle, topped with the Zaron lipgloss in Read My Lips.
Hair - Just tied up my hair to sleep, took it off when I woke, spritzed an oil & water mixture, fluffed it a bit as it was flat.
Face - as in previous image
Eyes - unearthed Sleek makeup iDivine palette in Sunset. Used the pearl pink for my lids, blended it out with the duochrome brown in the Revlon quad & a little black in the crease. Maybelline Color Tattoo & Smokey Eyes mascara
Lips - Usual but finished with Zaron 24 Karat this time
Hair - same as above
Face - same as above
Eyes - same as above. But used the green in the palette. Lined my eyes with the Sacred Artistry liquid liner pen
Lips - Dark brown pencil and Lancome nude pink lipstick in the centre of my lips.

For my LOC method, I used water, Natural Nigerian leave-in conditioner, Lemon grass essential oil in Shea Butter oil and African Naturalistas Hair Butter (will post a picture of all these pictures to my facebook page. I got the NN leave-in & Lemon Grass oil from a bag I won at the Natural Hair session during SMW2014. Now that reminds me of the LOADS of posts I owe you guys).

What are your thoughts on my Afro Week?
