5 Tips When Washing Your Face

Use a clean towel/Tissue  to remove make up and also clean excess water. Disposable wipes are also a good option when removing make up. Don't forget to clean the eye area too.
Cleansing and scrubbing go hand in hand. After washing the face, a scrub does a better job of removing dirt stuck in the pores than just the cleanser. These two will contribute to a healthier skin.
 Get a good moisturizer to restore moisture just as you do for your hair. It's advisable to apply a moisturizer as soon as possible prevent dryness. Moisturizing face is like the hair; moisture has to be retained at all levels of cleansing.
Use products appropriate for your skin type. This is related to the third point.Find skin care products that will work for you.
Be mindful of DIY products so you don't exacerbate your skin issues. 


Enjoy your facial care moments !

Hair Products I want To Try In 2017

Image
Now that my hair is gaining length, there are some products that may need to be added to the hair regimen.



The immediate one is the root only applicator bottle. That will make it easy to apply the Sulphur oil.

With the exception of the ors mayonnaise and the cantu deep treatment masque, all the others are new on the wish list.

The second product I want to buy is the Giovanni leave in conditioner and moisture conditioner.

The rest include ORS aloe shampoo, replenishing conditioner and jojoba, grape seed oils.

Quick Wash Day

Image
On the election day, I decided to wash my hair.




Prepooed for over two hours with coconut oil.
Shampooed with Carino coconut shampoo ( I fell in love with this shampoo because of the slip it has). I tried a new shampoo technique this time. I applied the shampoo on my scalp and massaged it for a while before going under the shower. This is a technique I've read about and I just say it's quite effective. I used the shampoo massage brush to clean the scalp. 
Deep conditioned for about 5 minuted with the Dark and Lovely Amla legend mask as directed.
My hair was very soft and smooth after air drying. At almost two weeks post relaxer, wash day should definitely be a breeze.


On the other hand, my biotin is finished so I need to get another bottle of vitamins. My goal is to get more than an inch. I'll share the vitamins I get with you this week.

I love the thickness of my hair ; I must say that the ORS relaxed really left me with the right texture.

How did your wash day go?

December Hair Goals

See the November hair goals November Goals

The main thing in November was to finish the biotin and indeed I've been so consistent that I have only a day's worth of capsules! That's a good one.

As for the deep conditioning, I did well to do it with every wash rather than twice a week because of shrinkage. Now, though, the hair is longer so I can si the twice a week. However, the moisturizing and sealing  has been quite on point so moisture isn't a problem.

December Goals


Start taking a new  vitamin. I'll share the before and after pictures with you next week. I choose this one for now because I'd compare it with the beautifully bamboo hair vitamins when they arrive. 
Apply Jamaican black castor oil on the scalp 4 times a week per the boot camp rules and seal the hair with it when I moisturize.
Keep moisturizing and sealing more often.
Lastly, purchase the ORS aloe shampoo for chelating the hair.


What are your goals for December?

2017 Hair Goals

The 2017 hair goals aren't going to be any different from the 2016 ones.

Hair Length

The first goal is to hit APL at least. My hair is at this moment slightly pass back length. By June, it should be Collar bone length. That's about 6 months of growth with about 3 inches.

The immediate length is  shoulder length by March. To get there , I'm going to keep bunning, deep conditioning, using the Sulphur oil mix, applying wild growth hair oil to the edges and taking my hair supplements.

Hair Supplements

I don't intend taking hair supplements forever. I want to switch to focusing on a healthy scalp and healthy strands. In as much as fast hair growth is desirable, retaining is the growth is much more important. I'll be switching to another women's supplements in the neqr future  which means I may just get to try the mielle vitamins one month and the mane choice too, another. It all boils down to what happens in the coming months. 

Thickness 

Secondly, attempt longer relaxer  …

3 Tips For Moisturizing and Sealing

Because the weather is pretty much dry, moisturizing and sealing is essential at this time of the year. 
Last night, I co washed and went to bed with the wet hair. This morning, my hair was dry and crunchy and couldn't understand why.

I skipped leave in conditioner and applied dark and lovely amla legend  oil moisturizer and then the cantu sheabutter hair lotion and sealed with coconut oil. Now, my hair was crunchy prior to the products and it was a not damp after using the lotion so I couldn't style it. It took about 10 minutes for the products to soak in but my hair was so soft and moisturized. The water from co washing had hydrated the hair before the moisturizing. My hair feels very thick and smooth and as a result I've learnt three tips that will take your moiayrizong game to another level.


Moisturize and seal as soon as you wake up to give your hair time to absorb the products.I intend using a shower cap to facilitate the absorption. The products will be absorbed before…

4 Hair Vitamins That Work!

I'm a huge believer of hair vitamins because I've seen how my hair thrives with them. In addition, my body stays energized with these supplements so aside hair, your general well being also improves. Here are the 4 hair vitamins I've used and seen results .

5 Products I Loved in 2016

I've got to give credits to some awesome hair products I used this year. I can claim that my products have been extremely minimal this year yet effective.

Let's start with the nature's bounty hair skin and nails vitamins. These supplements gave me a lot of growth after the big chop. What was required was consistency and faith. To be able to retain 6 inches in a year is a good feat.

Next is the sheamoisture superfruit conditioner which has amazing smell and gives great results.

Third is the wild growth which has restored my edges within a month of constant use. In fact, it's one product I'll make sure to always have in the stash. I'm going to continually apply it till the edges or hair line is fully restored. After that, I'll use it on the scalp itself to promote the same growth since I don't intend taking hair supplement next year.

Last is the  Cantu Sheabutter anti frizz foam leave in conditioner. Aside the fact that the hair easily and readily absorbs it,…

5 Steps To Caring For Your Hair

Image
I'm sharing these five steps in caring for your hair for all the new lados who have decided to embark on a healthy hair journey. These tips are meant to giuide you as you take the initial steps.


1. Get the basic products such as shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner, natural hair oils like coconut oil and olive oil, as well as deep conditioning aka steaming products like dark and lovely cholesterol.


Begin shampooing your hair once a week, follow up with a deep conditioner, rinse it out and apply leave in conditioner and hair oil. If you are relaxed, allow the hair dry a bit before combing.
Apply a moisturizer ( not the oil moiaturizer) about twice a week and follow up with the oil.
You don't have to stop going to a salon. Just guide your hair dresser to do the right things you've learnt.
Read about the dos and don'ts about your hair. If you are natural, there are some practices that will sabotage your progress. The same applies to relaxed hair. When you read about thes…

Co Wash + Coffee Rinse

Image
I think I'm gradually giving my hair the deserved attention and hope this doesn't become a farce.

As part of the twice a week deep conditioning, I decided to do another wash. I used the cantu sheabutter co wash to clean the hair because the Monday deep conditioning was on unwashed hair.

I t shirt dried the hair and applied the aphogee balancing moisturizer and used the steam cap for about 20 minutes. I, however, got to rinsing out the hair product about two hours later. I applied kinky curly knot today leave in and chi silk infusion before blow drying. I actually contemplated straightening but just the thought if spending another 30 minutes on the hair was tiring enough. I have to get an inch plate straightener considering how my hair has grown longer.


I'm just excited counting down the weeks to my next touch up.

Achieving Ketosis

If you are into weight loss then you may have heard of ketosis. Basically, it's about letting the body use up excess fat by allowing the body to convert it to glucose. At least that's the basic understanding.

To achieve ketosis involves a very low carb diet which is what I did last year to loose some weight. This year too, I want to loose the weight before we enter a fresh year.

This time around, I want to make it a constant diet for the next 6 months to achieve a healthy body.

Today is the first day and the meal plan included taking enough protein meals. 3 Eggs for a breakfast, soy milk and fruits for lunch and possibly salad for supper. From Saturday though, it's going to be more chicken and vegetables for lunch and supper.

I'll keep you updated. I know ketosis can kick in even within a day so I'm definitely hoping for great progress.

Just A Week Of Healthy Origins Biotin

Image
The biotin I'm currently taking is the healthy origins biotin which sells for 35gh. Unfortunately ,  it's out of stock for now. 

It's been a week and for the first time in months,  my nails are growing in quickly again. After not using hair supplements for almost two months, it's become obvious that these supplements are the reason my hair has been growing fast . 

I haven't had to trim my nails in these past few months but now,  they are getting longer. I'm going to monitor the progress and see how long it gets by the time the bottle is emptied. There are 60 vcaps in there so. That's like up to end of November or early December. 

I take one capsules daily, 5000mcg. I also take 2 Litres if water daily. This means I won't be getting nasty pimples. 

Here is a shot of the left hand. I usually keep the right one short.

Protective Challenge Mini Update

Image
I've been wearing my hair in a small bun through the month in addition to applying wild growth oil and sulphur oil on the scalp. Added to that is the healthy origins biotin. 

My hair is lustrous and smooth after flat ironing it. 









I take down the pony at night and apply a tiny amount of coconut oil to the ends especially and massage Sulphur oil on the scalp every other day. 

Looking forward to another length check in November.

Coffee Rinse Wash Day (2 Weeks Post Relaxer)

Image
One of the challenges we have in the boot camp is coffee rinse and this week again,  I brewed Nescafe coffee to use as a rinse before deep conditioning.  I avoid using water based products during the week to prevent shrinkage which inhibits styling.  
Here's how the wash went. 



I prepooed for about 4 hours with aloe oil mix and decided to use the renpure cleansing conditioner instead of  shampoo.

Then, I did the coffee rinse and deep conditioned with aphogee Balancing Moisturizer (in a few weeks time,  I'll have mine hair steaming cap). I left it on for approximately 2 hours before rinsing it out. I air-dried and  applied kinky curly knot today leave in conditioner and a bit of Cantu sheabutter lotion.

That's air-dried with no product. I wish I were shoulder length already LOL.

For ma edges I use we naturals  specific edge oil (not every day🙈)

Healthy Origins Biotin

Image
Hi family! How's your hair journey this month? We've done half of October  and can you believe my hair is constantly in a ponytail or with the ends tucked away?



I love that the hair is full neck length with healthy ends too. The first trim will be in a few months time just to prevent setbacks.

Anyway, after two months of no hair supplement,  I've added the biotin to the women's vitamins. I couldn't bear the thought of ending the year without touching shoulder length. As vain as it may sound,  hair vitamins have been one of the support systems that have brought me this far. The benefits have been immense and if there's no health reasons to stop taking them,  I'm all for it. 

I fell in love with this particular biotin as soon as I opened the bottle. First, aside the tight unbroken seal,  there was cotton to absorb moisture. This biotin is odorless and very tiny which makes swallowing smooth sailing. I'll check for growth and thickness in two weeks time. I…

How to Wash Hair After A Week Relaxer

Image
As this post centers on post relaxer hair care, I thought it might be more beneficial for new readers to know a few tips on how to wash hair after relaxing it. 

The basic regimen still applies except that for me,  I clarify or chelate post relaxer to guarantee that there aren't any relaxer left overs as well as strengthen the hair again.



**Prepooed for about 2 hours  with aloe vera and oil mix (the same one I mixed up weeks ago!) 

**I clarified with Sheamoisture African black soap shampoo, did a coffee rinse and deep conditioned with aphogee 2 minutes reconstructor, and then the aphogee Balancing Moisturizer for moisture protein balance. 



I deep conditioned with the balancing moisturizer for about an hour. 





I went the extra mile to blow dry and flat iron with my new straightener from kikuu but an insect fell into my left eye in the process so I boycotted it!

So far,  things have been smooth sailing and  participants checked in this week.I used the Sulphur on Saturday, Monday,  Wednesday and because I'd wanted to touch up,  I didn't apply it on Thursday .

Relaxer Update (October 2016)"

I relaxed the hair a couple of days ago. 

Here are all the details pertaining to this October relaxer.

The stylist based the scalp and edges with Vaseline. The application took a NJ it 3 minutes and smoothing with a Comb, another 5 minutes. I sat down for about 10 minutes because this ABC relaxer tends to give me texlaxed results - which I would mind a year from now. 

She shampooed,  deep conditioned with hooded dryer and did the usual leave and roller set routine. 

Get the results and length check in the video.

Sulphur For Hair Growth Check in #1 Benedicta

​Here's Benedicta's hair  update for the week. 

I just got rid of my 2 months braid. I used to clean it 3 times a week with baby wipes which work well for me... I apply my oil to my scalp n edges n u can see the amount of new growth i have. 

Check in #1 Erica

Image
​This is Erica's hair update for the first week of October. 

On Monday I did same in the morning except the shampoo. Then Empress checked in adding she applied hers at night. So I thought, why not give the night a try. 



So on Wednesday, I only moisturised my hair and worked on my edges in the morning. Before sleep that day, I applied the sulphur oil, massaged my hair and slept in satin bonnet. 

The feeling was great in the morning so I repeated same that night.But hey, I always applied wenatural stimulating oil on my edges. Water consumption was another thing to handle but I pulled through because I do most often.

Don't Dilute Your Jamaican Black Castor Oil

At least not too much with other oils.

A major complaint with using Jamaican Black Castor Oil is the thickness of the oil. The oil is so thick that some people mix or dilute with other oils to thin the castor oil out before use. Others also find their  scalp too itchy when the Jamaican Black Castor Oil is used directly on the Scalp.

Well,  every product is made to operate at its optimum best thus when you dilute it,  you tend to reduce the potency.

After making this discovery,  it's better to rethink about how to get the most out of the Jamaican Black Castor Oil.

Benefits of Overnight Hair Growth Treatment

Image
24 hours after the egg treatment, I put the hair into flexi rods. 



I really loved how easy it fitted into my hair and I can't wait to have full curls. 

Here's where I noticed some interesting changes in my hair. 


Strengthened hair : my hair wasn't as hard as I feared yet it wasn't also super soft. This kind of treatment can definitely benefit the hair prior to relaxer so that's what I'm going to do. 
Thicker hair is also another change I saw. Prior to the egg treatment, my hair felt quite light thus the treatment came at the  right time. 
  Smoother and shiny hair is a plus with this treatment too. 


In all,  I guess the overnight hair growth bandwagon has reopened my heart to using eggs. I'll do another treatment before the end of October or prior to relaxing.

Sulphur Oil For Hair Growth

Here's an update about my hair length and check in for October. 

To create the sulphur mix,  I used 8oz of a variety of hair oils and added one teaspoon full of the Sulphur. 

Get all the details in the video. 

https://youtu.be/e_-Iy904mzw

October Hair Goals

This is first month in this year that I've chosen to set goals. Reaching new heights require new direction, game plans and executing tactics so I'm back to setting goals.

Goal 1 

Be diligent with Sulphur mix. That's not going to be an option since it's the challenge we have in the Hair Growth group. 

Goal 2

Be proactive in using the wild growth oil too on the edges. The year ends soon and there has to be some sort of postive results. 

Goal 3

Deep condition each week of the month. The harmattan will get severe towards November thus protecting the hair now is essential. 

These are the three points of focus for October. There may be other ones but these take precedence. 

Goal 4

Stick to protective styling with my own hair. I think this will go well because I'm able to create roll and tuck styles now.

Wash Day @5 Weeks Post Relaxer

Image
First, let me complain about how the hair has not grown so much this time because I'm not taking my supplements.

Usually by  4 weeks, it will be uncontrollably thick as a result of the new growth but this time,  it feels as if I just relaxed it. It feels like the it has grown just 1/4 too. Lol. 

We start the Sulphur oil mix as well as the protective style challenge this October therfore I'm hopeful for better growth. 

I won't be injesting any hair supplements which translates into better monitoring of the Sulphur. 

There are 21 ladies participating in this year long challenge so expect tons of updates and pictures.

Reader Votes 

 At the end of the month, you the reader, will have the opportunity to choose one participant as winner. You'll see the length check pictures and the poll will be up throughout November to select the winner. 

This is going to be so much fun!  

The Wash Day



I washed the hair at the salon again as I mentioned. Being salon dependent can be useful if your …

Hair Boot Camp Check #1

We are starting the first challenge but I won't reveal details yet. That will come when the challenge is over.

You'll get more details of each person hair with time. 



Hi Fafa

Each participant's routine will be shared each week.

12 Months Of Hair Boot CAMP

Image
Esther 2

There's a boot camp currently underway  for ladies in Ghana. After years of this journey, I've decided to do more than just talk about hair.

I want to be part and parcel of people's hair journey so this challenge is all about active participation. By interacting with participants,  it will be easier answering questions and helping see their progress. 



Meet Joyce. 

More participants will be shown as the weeks roll by. 

The first challenge will be in October and details will be shared at the end of the challenge. However, in the course of the week,  you'll see updates about what each one does to their hair. 

You'll also get to see progress pictures and select the winner.

September Length Check

Image
I haven't done a length check in a while therfore I decided to take advantage of the fact that the hair is out to do a length check prior to the Sulphur oil growth competition. 


With three months to go,  I guess I can push harder for more length.

Sulphur Oil Mix #2

Image
Whilst I use the wild growth oil on my edges, I'll be using Sulphur mixed with 8oz of my oil mix in an applicator bottle.



The first time I used Sulphur was about four years ago and since then,  I haven't ventured into it again. I also didn't track the progress the first time. This time though,  I'll be monitoring it like a hawk. 

I'll be using it 4x a week on the scalp and also make sure I'm consistent with it for the next 3 months. I'm putting all my oils to good use. 

That means washing often in order to keep the scalp clean too. 

We are about 20 ladies partaking in this challenge thus you'll be seeing tons of progress pictures.

Wild Growth hair oil First Impressions

I've began using the wild growth oil on my edges. Yes, you know that's my first focus on.
For my scalp, I'll use something else.

Smell

It's not an easy to  tolerate smell at all! It smells like stew or mixed spices Lol. After use,  you wonder whether the one next to  you can also smell it.

Consistency is like that of cooking oil,  not too thick nor light. That's postive as you won't get it dripping down your face.

Easy to pour since the nozzle is small.

I'll do a full review after 12 weeks with updated in between.

Quick Wash Day

​After puffy air dried and uncontrollable hair, I decided to get a salon wash and set to tame the hair. I have my wash products at the salon already so I pop in whenever I want to.
She shampooed and then deep conditioned with Cantu sheabutter deep treatment mask. Applied the Cantu sheabutter anti frizz foam leave in conditioner and roller set. 

The whole process took about an hour and a half.

I'll  washing twice a week these days to keep the hair presentable and also the use of Sulphur required frequent washing. How I wish I had the length now! 

Air drying long hair is much easier so until I get there, salon wash will be a great friend. 

In other news, I've exercised due diligence in applying the wild growth oil on my edges because I want to have a  comprehensive and honest review.

4 Weeks Post Relaxer Update

Image
If I say I've been monitoring the days and weeks, I'd be kidding myself because I only think of my hair probably twice a day. Yes, I mean I can't even recall how the last wash day went Lol . That's going  to change this week for the reason that I'm using this time to prepare the hair for the harmattan when I won't be wearing  wigs that often. 


The Vitamins 

I'd wanted to take biotin alongside my women's vitamins but care has to be taken in order not to have negative side effects so I'm putting it on hold until November when I'm done with the current vitamins. 

Growth 

I haven't noticed much growth this time obviously because I haven't been taking any hair supplements. This just shows the effectiveness of hair supplements in my hair journey. Usually, by week 4, the new growth is very thick and can't be easily seen. This time though,  it's like two weeks worth of growth. Since I can't take the hair vitamins, I have chosen a differ…

30 Days of Protective Styling.

Image
[caption width="400" align="aligncentre"]Protective Styling Challenge [/caption]

For the month of October, we are are going hardcore with protective styling.
As the harmattan sets in,  we want to keep our hair protected to avoid loosing all that we've gained during the year.
You can wear any style of your choice. However, these are the rules.
1. No tight styles like tiny twists aka Gari.
2. Ensure that you keep your scalp clean either with dry shampoo or washing.

Along with protective styling,  we'll be doing scalp massaging to increase growth. For those who can,  you may do inversion for 7 days.

I'll fall on wigs and buns with extensions during  the period for optimum retention. My ends will definitely be tucked in with any style. 

It will also be a good time to be consistent with your growth aid.

What Might Be Causing Your Dandruff?

Photo Credit : Google Images

Today's post is dedicated  to dandruff, a common hair woe that most of us battle with. If you are an exception, then you must count yourself lucky!

So what is dandruff?

Dandruff is a scalp condition that causes the skin cells on your scalp to flake and itch. Although it's not contagious, it is sometimes very irritating and quite embarrassing.

What causes dandruff?

The direct cause of dandruff is a rapid renewal of the skin cells on the scalp.

The human skin is composed of layers. The epidermis which is the outermost layer sheds off as new skin cells grow. As this process continues, the old skin cells fall out and  die off. This physiological process produces an amount of flaking which is normal and is usually invisible to the naked eyes. However, in certain people, this process is exaggerated and leads to excessive shedding of skin cells that accumulate on the scalp and clump together with the natural hair oils. The result is unsightly visible flakes tha…

Overnight Hair Growth Result

Image
I washed the egg out after an hour or more with cold water and poured a generous amount of coconut oil on the hair, covered with a large shopping bag and a beanie to catch any drip.

By morning though, all those had fallen off leaving me with  dry hair smh. 

[caption width="400" align="alignnone"]The hair with the egg treatment [/caption]

I had to carefully do finger detangling first. 



Does the method work? Ah, well,  I didn't set off to measure hair here and there but since my hair has remained soft, I'll do it in October with a proper length check. In the course of the week,  I'll let you know if there's a change in the ponytail which will let us know if I gained some length.

Overnight Hair Growth Testing!

Image
I got some free time and decided to wash the hair but without my deep conditioner at home, I chose to try the overnight hair growth bandwagon in the process of washing the hair.

My History With Eggs 

I don't see eggs as good deep conditioners but for the sake of this method,  I ventured into using my breakfast. The last time I used egg on my hair,  I didn't have any moisturizing products nor knew that much about deep conditioning with protein. I think you'll find that post by searching '' egg treatment ''. I ended up blow drying too I think and just got dry,  stiff hair. 

This Egg 

I used two eggs, about a tablespoon of oil and coconut oil. 








I beat the egg and oil and applied to dry hair in the kitchen sink. I didn't want any mess in the bathroom. I covered the hair with a shopping bag and an old dress to catch the dripping mix before I smelt of egg. 

After an hour, I'll wash it off. I didn't take a length check picture because I don't believe in…

Wash Day After Swimming

Image
If you didn't know, I relaxed my hair two weeks ago and have since washed once or twice.



Before jumping into the swimming pool( I'm the worst learner Lol),  I protected the hair with coconut oil and Vaseline. When I got home,  I washed with Sheamoisture African black soap shampoo and applied the Cantu sheabutter rinse out conditioner. I sealed the hair with coconut oil again. 

I skipped leave in because I felt the water in the hair was enough and the hair did stay moisturized until I got the crotchet braid.
