How I Grew My Edges (And Still Growing It)

About 3 months ago, I painstakingly dished out a huge amount to purchase edge entity follicle stimulant cream and now, I'm full of excitement about the progress.

It's been 4 months since my last braid too and these two things have helped restore the glory of my hairline.

I wasn't a happy fella with those ratchet looking edges and I was definitely to be blamed for that damage.

I use the edge entity once a day, every single day (I try not to miss) . I purchased the 4oz jar hence I have 3 more months of use. The jar directs that it's used within 6 months.

When it's finished, I'm still going to be my sulphur hair oil to maintain it. I use that on my scalp and my two weeks growth is impressive.

As for the nature's bounty gummies, I take them once every 3 to 4 days and that's how it's going to be to avoid breakout.

Anyway, here are more pictures.

Nature's Bounty Gummies Weeks #2

These gummies are too strong for me so I've switched to taking them every 3 days rather than every other day.

I've also upped the water intake to help eliminate excess from the body. This will also stop possible breakouts as a result of the biotin.

Now, my body usually tolerates 5000mcg or more biotin thus to feel the effect like this implies that the gummies are quite potent; more potent than the credit given it.

I love taking them and I feel energetic despite the method of usage.

Boot Camp Wash Day

Last night, I really paid attention to my hair as I want to have a detailed wash routine for new readers and also participants in the 2018 boot camp.

1. Washed with the Ors aloe creamy shampoo to remove dirt and build up from the chemicals in the water I use.

2. I rinsed the shampoo out and applied a deep conditioner (I used dark and lovely Amla legend mask) I know some of the ladies have ORS replenishing conditioner, ORS nourishing conditioner, Eco Lesterol. These are deep conditioners you can use. I covered my hair with a steam cap to allow the body's heat to heat up the deep conditioner for it to work.
3. I left the deep conditioner on for as long as I could and then rinsed off with cold water.

4. I used an old t shirt to dry the hair and then applied leave in conditioner.

5. I used mane choice hair oil after to seal in the moisture and covered with a steam cap for overnight Green House Effect. This method infuses moisture in the hair and can be done as often as you want.

During the week, I use a moisturizer, and then follow with a hair butter to seal in the moisture.

I use either a hair milk or any moisturizer available. I also loved S curl so I'm back to that.

That's the routine for our first week.
For the weeks 2, 3, 4, you use regular shampoo such as VO5 shampoo, ORS baobab shampoo, Creme of Nature shampoo, Cantu sheabutter shampoo etc.

Beauty Formulas Age defying day cream and Age control Night Cream

The last time I did an intensive facial cleansing was about a month ago. After that,  I haven't used a scrub so why didn't I get breakouts like I do when I don't use scrub? I believe scrubs unclog blocked pores but if the pored aren't blocked in the first place,  then,  there won't be any unclogging.

What's the secret?  The new facial moisturizers I use.
I use the Beauty Formulas Age defying day cream and age control night cream.

I've been consistent in using just these two on face and those who also purchased it, love it.
My face has remained smooth and acne free even without scrubbing so imagine the joy I have.
I'll be using scrub every now and then as a maintenance routine.
The day cream is lighter and smells great too.  I focus is on the eye area and the  eyes have  felt and looked more moisturized.  Even though I still plan on getting an eye cream and vitamin C facial serums,  this cream is filling that gab quite well.

The night cream is thicker and also smells fresh but more milder. Probably the thickness has to do with oils in it to revitalize the skin.
This combination has been a life saver and unless something new comes in,  I'm sticking with them. The other thing too is they are affordable!
You can Whatsapp 0541458372 to get one.

My Hair Update; Nature's Bounty Gummies

It seems I've gone under the radar; well, I have because I'm back to work but my hair hasn't been neglected at all.

I've had three more cuts with the last one being last week. I've had with my hair more than I've ever had! No complaints, no qualms at all about length.

Now, I'm ready to embrace the natural life. Haven enjoyed short hair like that I've satisfied my cravings and also grown used to the cuts.

I finished the Hairfinity vitamins 2 weeks ago and just began taking the nature's bounty Gummies as my energy levels dipped. I do take supplements for my energy level so the hair vitamins are just the best way of getting to enjoy both worlds.

My goal is to grow out the hair for Braids in the harmattan at the Northern region (I may spend Xmas there). I miss Braids but I miss my natural, unrelaxed hair more.

I love my natural hair now more than ever and I'm super excited to give it another try. Of course haven worn twa for 3 months in a row, I guess I've overcome the twa hump stages of my journey.

The weather is quite cold these days too so occasionally, I wear a wig.
I've washed my hair several times in the past weeks but I'll have a proper wash day post later in the year. For now,I'm gearing up for Boot Camp 2018. It's all about helping and supporting each other to grow out the hair. The boot camp is 12 months so expect progress updates.
How's your hair?

Finally!! The Sulphur Hair Growth Oil Proof

So, I've been making noise about my sulphur hair growth oil and a lot of customers have sent in their own progress pictures. I've used the oil before but I cut my hair during the challenge. Since I ought to get my length back( you won't understand but I'll explain when I get there).

Today, 29th August, 2017 marks the first day of the 4 months of Sulphur Hair Growth oil challenge for me. I don't intend braiding even during Xmas season because of the edges but I do want to be able to pull a bun under the wigs. I'm not going take ANY hair growth vitamins but the one condition that will make me stop is if I'm pregnant.

Aside that, I don't have any qualms about using the oil until December 15th thereabout. I'll do updates as frequent as possible. If I pause, it may be because of the reason I've provided.

Anyway, if you wish to buy a bottle, call me 0541458372 and you get to enjoy free delivery anywhere in Ghana too! That's cool, isn't it?

Grow Natural Hair Update

Barely an hour after posting about how I want to grow the hair and braid, I joined hubby to go to the barbershop. Why?

He didn't like that I Permed the tapered cut. This is the first time he's made an input regarding what he likes about my hair so I quite excited to get rid of the perm. However, I still left the top untouched to frame my face.

I'm quite happy about the back looking even now and I still have the aim of braiding by December so don't despair. I want to enjoy my hair journey and for the first time since I began the journey, I feel so liberated to do what I want. What's the essence of hitting waist length without enjoying the process?
All the same, let's keep growing our hair.

Growing Natural Hair Quickly

I've been enjoying the tapered cut and the back, which is mostly natural is getting fuller.

I don't intend reshaping as I want to grow it out to braid up. I've been contemplating on this for a while and have decided to still keep the hair natural. The target is to braid by October but if that doesn't happen, I'll settle for December.

The only growth aid I'm using is the mane choice oil which is amazing!
I use it as often as three times a week on the scalp and hair.

As for supplements, I'm back on the women's vitamins since I didn't finish the last set Lol. No wastage here. It's enough for about some months after which I'll be back on the regular hair skin and nails; most likely beautifully bamboo vitamins.
So, join me on the quest to grow back this hair for a braid!!!!!
