How To Wash A Toddler's Hair

Image
I can't count the number of occasions I've literally exclaimed in my head, "just cut off this hair if you can't care for it" upon seeing a toddler with unkempt hair, most often, relaxed too! Am all for long beautiful hair for kids but that doesn't seem to be a reality with most mothers ignorant of how to care for their baby girl's hair. For mothers eager to take matters into their own hands, here's something to help you from mahoganyknots

5 Terms I Dislike In The Hair Care Community

Image
--> Am going to be very blunt in expressing my feelings; don't take it personal!

1. Creamy crack/white crack-referring to relaxer. This is my face when I hear ladies whether relaxed or natural use it. I see that word to be derogatory and one the occasions I've used it, it was more of being sarcastic because a lot of the time I've seen it in use, it's from naturals. The word "crack" is usually in reference to an addiction and if it were so with relaxers, then, people would have to see counsellors or psychologist to go off it!

Product Review: Creme Of Nature Intensive Conditioning Treatment

Image
Here's is what I think of the much raved about Creme of Nature Intense treatment. I purchased this with the intention of using it weekly. The word 'intensive' means that there is a protein element meant to strengthen the hair and stop breakage. 
Unfortunately for me, I didn't notice this until after a couple of weeks. Do I like it? How did my hair respond to it? Watch and leave your comments, questions or suggestions.

Whipped Sheabutter Using Blender

Image
After several months of laziness, I got around to whipping my almost 33oz bucket size of sheabutter! Most often, what you usually see is the mix being made with a hand mixer or an electric mixer. Well, have no fear! You can use your regular blender. How?


Gather all the oils you want to add to your sheabutter. I used hemp oil, extra virgin coconut oil and almond oil. In no particular order, I poured about 4 tablespoons full of each oil and added the sheabutter into my baby food blender-my big one is too big lol. Be sure to wash your blender well to get rid of pepper or other stuff that might not be pleasant on your skinBlend for some seconds and your whipped sheabutter is ready!
