OKRO- What about them?

Hey beautiful people, how do you do?, how’s ya weekend going?, any turn-up?

Today, we would be talking about Okro or Okra, also known as Lady finger in most english country. You’re probably Β thinking…..okro?…what does she have to say about okro?, can okro be used or incorporated in a beauty regime again?, the thought of having an okro face mask/ okro leave-in in your hair sounds gross abi?… as typical Nigerians we are all used to this

But, today I wouldn’t be giving recipes on how to prepare okro soup,lol.

Okro belongs to a mallow family. It is fat-free, nutrient-dense. Okro has high fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, it also contains calcium, pottassium, niacin(vitamin B3), thamin,vit B6, magnesium, beta-carotene, and lutein. In addition, it has powerful antioxidant properties. It has nemerous benefits which include…

  • Reducing of blood sugar level
  • Lowers bad cholesterol
  • Treats leukorrhea
  • Prevent liver disease
  • Make your hair soft and shiny
  • Prevents constipation
  • Improves heart health
  • Okro Prevents dandruff too
  • Also, improves eyesight.

You can make a face mask by simply getting 1cup of chopped okro, water, olive oil/ jojoba oil or any carrier oil (optional) put in a blender and blend till it form a paste……tadaa….thats your face mask. Then for your hair, I.e making a LEAVE-IN….here is a pictorial by esther’tom..

Try this recipes and let me know what you think, mind you hv tried it numerous times, P.s: if you stay with your parent, do not, I repeat DO NOT, try this when your momma is around.

    1. Lol @ eating okro, I don’t agree with that person.
      Sure, you could add it to your regimen, I never post what I don’t/haven’t done, and it worked for me, tho have done it just thrice since I joined the natural hair gang (a year plus now).
      Don’t worry your natural hair go grow pass medium- length,lol.
      Thanks for stopping by.
