Grow Your Edges ( Edge Entity Month 1)

We are close to the last quarter of the year 2017 already and as it stands now, I can say my edges have grown in a lot! I've been faithful in using the edge entity follicle stimulant daily and I see that the parts that were bald are gradually growing back. I've had the second shaping of the back and I have a last one to do in a few months time. This is the first month of using the cream out of 6 months so in look forward to seeing thicker edges by month 3. This period has made me realize the damage I was doing to the edges.  Braids and weaves aren't  bad; I just had instances of tight braids that put pressure on the hairline.  After postpartum, I shouldn't  have braided nor worn a weave to allow the edges to fully recover.  That is what has resulted in the bald patches around the edges. Even as it grows in,  it looks like it's  going to take years to have a full hairline again. I'm willing to give  myself that much time to heal my edges and also my s

Mane Choice Hair Growth Oil

Why the mane choice hair growth oil? The hairfinity vitamins will be finished in 7 days time. Now, I know the potential of my Sulphur hair growth oil and also the Jamaican black castor oil. This will be the right opportunity to see the potency of the mane choice hair growth oil too. Most of the reviews have claimed that the oil is more moisturizing and that is the main purpose for which I grabbed the mane choice hair growth oil. I'll be taking new supplements but for now, I want to see how my hair will do. I need it to stay moisturized as it grows too.

3 Steps To Infusing Moisture In Your Hair

My hair has been dry lately probably because I lie down on the sofa a lot ( no protection for the hair). To rectify this, I decided to do a green house effect. 1.

I'll do this for about three times a week as the whether is becoming more dry. Have you tried Green House Effect? 3.

Aloe Vera for Sore Scalp

The one thing this week has taught me is that whatever I did with the previous big chops were not really about the techniques but one ingredient - aloe vera. I haven't used aloe vera this time and the sore scalp has opened my eyes to how essential this ingredient is. My scalp has been sore to the point of being unable to touch! I scanned my routine and noticed that I've left out aloe vera this time. I opened a leave and applied it; my scalp responded to it immediately. I mean I felt a soothing effect right after application. We don't know what we have until we find ourselves in need. Can you imagine that the aloe vera treatment was the key to my scalp feeling good after big chop? I felt my hair wasn't also growing as fast as the last time and that has also been explained. You won't get fast hair growth with a damaged scalp! I've plugged more fresh aloe vera plant to use daily. I don't care about shrinkage hence I can use the treatment for as long as

What Is Micellar Cleansing Water?

According to Huffington post, There’s washing your face with soap and water, and then there’s cleansing with micellar water. Micellar water is made up of micelles (tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules) suspended in soft water. “The idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin.  Therefore, micellar cleansing  water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one. I've been using the Beauty Formulas Micellar Cleansing Water in my routine. Here's my review of it; I talk about the smell, how it feels on my skin and how I use it. Source:
