Image
For the next 6 months, I'll using only mega growth products!! I know you are excited to see this.I'll be starting on the 1st of March hence I haven't washed my hair since last week. 

I'll be using one at a time, starting with shampoo, conditioner and leave in and the mega growth deep conditioner and the anti breakage strengthener with the growth lotion. I'll add a couple of others along the way. If you are ready to see this journey, leave a comment below. 😍

Wash Day With Camille Rose Cocoa Deep Conditioner

Image
This is the second time I'm using the Camille Rose Cocoa deep conditioner and it's Ama amazing experience with this.

1. I shampooed 2 times with Jo Naturals shampoo (from @emprezzglamhub on Instagram). I shampooed 2 times because my scalp was extremely dirty from sweat. 
2. I applied the Camille Rose Cocoa deep conditioner on the hair and left it for some minutes 

3. I rinsed out and used the Hawaiian silky 14 in 1 moisturizer as a leave in conditioner and followed with Teiva jojoba oil and Palmers gro treatment creme (That's the Liquid, Oil Creme L. O. C method). I used this moisturizing method to allow the moisture stay longer in the hair. 
I allowed the hair to air dry.. 


It's been 6 weeks since I cut down the hair and it's growing back so well.  How's your hair now?

4 Ways To Moisturise Your Hair

Image
There are several options available for moisturizing and sealing your hair. You'll need to try them and find what works for you. 
Method 1:Using your leave in conditioner (Especially if it is creamy or lotion). Apply to the hair and follow with an oil. Do this daily if you have to in order to keep the moisture in the hair. 

Method 2: Using a hair moisturizer. If you are using Ors hairepair, S curl no drip moisturizer or the Hawaiian silky 14 in 1 moisturizer, you can spray it first and follow with the oil.

Method 3: Use a very light leave in conditioner like the Creme of Nature Argan leave in conditioner  or hotfro leave in conditioner first, follow with your oil or butter and then follow with a creamy moisturizer like the Ors hairepair moisturizer or a styling creme. That's the L. O. C method. 
Method 4: You'll use the light leave in conditioner or water, apply the Ors creamy moisturizer or hawaiian silky moisturizer and then your hair oil or butter. This is the L. C. O metho…

Wash Day for Week 1 February, 2020

Image
I'm going to be more detailed in this wash to help you understand how I wash my hair. This will be a series so stay tuned.
To wash, I use any shampoo available. I have hotfro shampoo and groganics shampoo I alternate. I use one shampoo per week as a first step to wash my hair either home or at the salon.  Assuming you are using any of these, the Doo gro tingling shampoo will be step 1 
Step. 2. After rinsing off the shampoo, I follow up with the hotfro conditioner or groganics conditioner and leave for 1 minute and rinse out. 
Step 3. At this point, I apply the hotfro leave in conditioner (Red label) or if I have mega growth leave in conditioner, I use that. If I have Hawaiian Silky moisturizer, I use that or S curl No Drip moisturizer or the mega growth anti breakage strengthener. I like to add the amla oil at this point or the hotfro oil mix before the rollers are done.
Step 4. I don't use any oil in the hair again after it is dry. I use a hair pomade on the scalp, here, it can …

Happy New Year

Image
I'm glad to have had another opportunity to make my hair journey better and more meaningful. 

Let's see.  I have plans of growing the hair out but will post an official update on 1st May, 2020.
From now till then, I'll be taking my hair vitamins, using the growth oils and focusing on making the most of the year.  The vitamin I'm taking now is the mielle adult gummies. It's just for 30 days after which I'll switch to bamboo tea for 2 months or biosil for a month or Halo Beauty Hair vitamins. We will see which one comes next. 
Fast hair growth is the aim for the year. All 12 months will be for growing the hair faster. Whatever methods I adopt, I'll keep you posted on them. 
How's your hair so far? 

Ending Year 2019 With a Bang!

What a year it has been. In as much as Iook forward to year 2020, I'm not really as enthused and it's because all my effort just went down the drain!
I, now, have less than an inch of hair thanks to a bad hair cut. All the same, here aew a few changes to my goals.
1. Use up the remaining shampoos and conditionera by March and switch to a new brand or two.
2. Stick to liquid vitamins or gummies. I struggle with capsules hnece in changing the narrative this time. Throughout the coming year, I've outlined all that I want to use and that is mainly gummies or liquid hair vitamins. There are 2 capsules based  vitamins from Halo beauty by Tati and those are the Halo Beauty Hair, skin and nails vitamins and the kiwi seed vitamin. Aside these, all others will be liquid based.

3. Do 10 weeks stretch. I've been able to do it so far therefore I keep going with it.

4. Do more co washing to keep the hair moisturized and allow it to thrive.

I'll do mid year update on these produc…

Hibiscus Rinse + Wash Day

Image
During the week, I prepared hibiscus infused in water and rinsed the hair with it. My hair, immediately, became extremely hydrated and soft. 
For the wash day, I deced to prepoo with aloe Vera oil using adyeam cap. 

It's been a while since I did this! I shampooed and condtioned and air dried. 
The only part that excites me is the front hair is gradually getting long enough to hide the damage done by the braids and weaves I wore; the edges would be less visible. 
**I'm actually 6 weeks post ** I have about 2 weeks to go before next relaxer and I'm just counting down to seeing the length I gain. I'm trusting the nature's bounty vitamin to keep working like this. 

Wash Day with Wave Nouveau

Image
My hair has grown thicker and shrinks to an annoying level too.
To wash, I used Groganics deep freeze shampoo and conditioned with Jo Naturals banana conditioner.  I tried a new product in the form of Wave Nouveau daily humectant. 
This moisturizer promises to be more hydrating so I'm going to use it for some months and then review it. The intriguing thing about it is that it's meant for Jeri curls!  I followed with ORS vital oil which I want to use up by December.  Over all, I'm happy to be washing weekly and look forward to more length! 

What Is Going On With My Hairfinity Challenge

Image
It's past midnight but because I'm unable to sleep, I decided to do a hair update.

I've been on liquid iron for close to 2 weeks now after it was detected that it's gone low again. My diet hasn't been helpful either hence I'm left with no choice than to take the liquid iron as prescribed. I've paused the last few capsules to focus on the liquid iron. The catch is the liquid iron has some is the ingredients in the hairfinity hence I can't take both of them. 
On another note, I got 2 touch ups and my hair is going good. I just haven't had the time to take pictures due to a family crisis (keep us in your prayers).  The plan is to increase my water intake as soon as I can, add more yogurt to my diet and also take in more beet root juice.  Stay tuned for the update in the coming weeks. 

Hairfinity Week 4

Image
I've done quite well in taking the hairfinity consistently. However, it came at another cost!
My hair is back to the length it was prior to the 2 cuts in July. I haven't damaged my hair with any product for the first time in a long time! Whilst that's good news, I have worse news and that explains why I haven't been able to write.
I've virtually spent a full week on my health. It turned out that I had low iron again! Though it's not as bad as it used to be, I've been put on 5 bottles of liquid iron for the next 4 weeks.

Thus, I can't take the second bottle and the rest. One of the things I noticed about my hair was though it was growing in well, it looked a bit patchy in some areas and that immediately alerted me to a potential low iron situation. I'm so conscious of my body hence I'm quick to know when something is off! I'm glad I got it checked. This isn't about the hairfinity, if you've watched my video, you'll know I've give…

What's The Use of Retinol For Your Skin?

Retinol belongs to a class of compounds known as retinoids. These agents are derived from vitamin A, an ingredient that increases cell turnover and enhances collagen production.  Not only does it impressively decrease wrinkles but it’s lauded for its ability to clear up acne and blur pigmentation caused by sun damage
As a person ages, collagen and cell production slow down, but retinol helps to encourage cell regeneration and ensure that new collagen continues to form.  As collagen is replenished and old skin cells are shed, fine lines recede and skin appears brighter and smoother.

One Week Update Of Hairfinity Vitamins

Image
It's been a week already and though I don't do mid week posts, I had to do this now for the 7 days.First, no pimple or breakout (yet) ♥️♥️♥️♥️



I'm sure I won't get any breakout but let's see how it goes. 
Nothing has changed except I've began wearing wigs!!! Yes, I haven't done long hair wigs in ages and I wanted to experience that feel of styling hair again. 


One beautiful aspect of wigs is the change in looks! I want to really keep this long hair going until I reach my first goal ie the cornrows with my own hair, hopefully by December. If there's the need to do an update again, I'll be sure to do just that for you.

90 Days Hairfinity

Image
I've been around, just contemplating on the next moves and finally settled in 6 months of Hairfinity but beginning with 90 days first.I will do a full update when I'm done with the first bottle - if there is enough growto see.




The reason why the top is longer but sides are shorter is because of a tapered cut gone wrong! I wasn't happy with the way the back was initially shaped hence I had to get it lower in order to get a decent look.
This is our beginning length. Let's see how it looks in 4 weeks, that's around 18th August. If the press is good, I should be able to get through the 2 remaining bottles. If it happens that I have to stop taking it for a couple of reasons, I'll update you. For now, my next post will be next month.
If that doesn't happen, I'll do a full update on  October 18th when I will be done with the 3 bottles (hopefully).

July Hair Updates #1

Image
I don't want to keep repeating information so for this July, I will be using the month as updates for all the routines. That means at least 4 posts in 4 weeks! 


Week 1 Washing  I, finally, shampooed using groganics shampoo and aloe shea conditioner (a new brand -Jo Naturals. My scalp wouldn't let be go another week without proper cleansing.  I applied the groganics head full of hair creme and brushed the hair down  I've paused the gummies I was taking to finish up a new medication (wish I could go deeper into what is ailing me but I'm not ready yet).

Due to this change, I restructured my alarm to remind me to use the hair mist as often as I could.  I'm impressed with the progress so far but I can't wait to get to the cornrows so I can elimaite the stress of getting the hair moisturized daily as it's always out at the mercy of the elements.
