Your guide to clearer skin & thicker longer relaxed hair

A lot of my friends call me Fomsky (a nick name derived from my real name Ufuoma :) ) and I decided to use the name Dr Fomsky as my pen name for this blog.

I am a Nigerian-born medical doctor with a Masters degree in public health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I love blogging because it gives me an opportunity to express myself in words and I hope that I can help someone achieve a total makeover by following my beauty tips. I promise to move with the times and hope to still be blogging for many years to come. 

The Sizzling Mommy blog is mostly a relaxed hair blog about relaxed hair care but I do write about fitness and skin care from time to time. This is in line with my long-term goals to pursue a career closely related to cosmetic dermatology and aesthetic medicine. 

I started my first blog, Versatile Woman, in 2008. It was essentially a blog where I talked about my everyday experiences. When I was pregnant for my second child, I went from 70 kg (154 pounds) pre-pregnancy to 90 kg (198 pounds) by the end of the pregnancy in December 2010. I felt that it would be better to have a separate blog to catalog my weight loss journey back to my pre-pregnancy state. Hence my decision to start this blog in January 2011 and call it The Sizzling Mommy blog. In my opinion, being A Sizzling Mommy means that I can look beautiful inside and outside, top to bottom. HAIR. SKIN. SPIRIT. MIND. BODY.

December 2009 (18 months after my first child)

I had started my hair journey in January 2010 but when I found out I was pregnant that year, I sort of put my hair journey on hold. It was only when I started this blog in 2011 that I found a way to document my progress. Over time, I have found that the hair topics have even surpassed the weight loss topics I started with but I will continue to post topics related to weight management once in a while.     

I have fine hair strands and my hair is not particularly full. This was my main reason for starting a hair journey in the first place.

I was able to grow my hair till almost Brastrap length even though my hair journey has not always been smooth: I experienced a setback from a bad relaxer experience and I had to cut my hair back to neck length.
