Chi Silk Infusion Review

Image
When you have protein sensitive hair like mine, you don't take some products for granted.



 It came  to my attention through YouTube reviews. This Chi silk infusion is a protein based oil and as such, acts as an instant source of protein minus the hassle of doing a full protein treatment. 

A few years ago, the Chi silk infusion was the bandwagon to join. Though the noise has fizzled out, I still love this oil. This is the second year it's been with me and I intend to empty it and buy a new one. I use it in several ways and for different purposes. 

Watch the video for more details. For this year, I plan to use this oil on wash days as a sealant to provide protein for my hair.

Valentine's Day Hairstyle Ideas

I decided to switch up my looks with some hair beads and it turned out to be the change I need. I will look into more hair jewelry to make styling more attractive.



The beauty of the beads is that I can wear the same thing in different ways each week. How about that?

I'll keep thus style for a week, recreate another one for each week. I've seen a couple of YouTube tutorials I will try when I'm free. 







I'm sure the beads will be a trademark very soon Lol.





Here's the tutorial.

4 Wash Day Tips For Relaxed Hair

Image
There are a variety of things you can do  to enhance your wash day experience.




Prepoo treatment is not overrated. I know some bloggers don't see the need but do what works for you. When I ceased doing the Prepoo, I into get the same moisturized hair.
Use heat to deep condition. Unfortunately, I know getting a steam cap is a problem but do try to get one for your hair. It makes a huge difference .
Air drying in sections helps stretch the hair and leave you with smooth hair too. I don't worry about too much shrinkage during the air drying.
Use detangling products especially shampoos and leave in conditioners to reduce knots and tangles when manipulating the hair.

Moisturizing and Sealing Products To Use Up

Image
One of the oils in my stash is the cantu sheabutter gel oil. This will be the oil for sealing until I empty it.



I'll use it after moisturizing with water, rose water and then the Mielle Organics hair milk in different combinations. I will also attempt a Prepoo with it and see how it goes. Lol. The things we do for hair.

The next one is the cantu sheabutter split end mender. Honestly, I don't see anything unique about this product. It's just too watery for me. I'll use it as a braid spray to keep my hair hydrated each time I wear cornrows ( Yes, I got the pass to braid my own hair in cornrows so that's OK).

The last one is the cantu sheabutter hair lotion. When these three get empty, I can then use up the newer items.

Have you used the gel oil before ?
