Detox Hair And Scalp

Image
After relaxing the hair, I guess the next thing was to nourish the scalp and aside using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil, I went in for the Design Essentials Detoxifying Tonic.(check shop.ghanaianemprezz.com to purchase one)I applied the detox tonic on dry hair and massaged it into the scalp. It has a lot of slip which I love!I applied diluted conditioner and washed off after some minutes. I, then, applied Jamaican Black Castor Oil to the damp hair. Next morning, I sprayed my diy tea mist on the hair and I was simply in love with the feel of my hair. It was smooth, clean and light. If you have relaxed hair, I'd definitely suggest detoxing the scalp at least after every touch up. Giving the scalp all the care it needs ensures a healthy environment for more growth hence the reasons why I'm always paying attention to it. In return, my hair grows in faster!

Post Relaxer Wash

After 6 weeks, I decided to touch and all went well. I used the Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil Relaxer and I did the application myself. Post relaxer, I shampooed 3 times with ORS aloe creamy shampoo to ensure all the chemicals were washed out. I deep conditioned with Aphogee Balancing Moisturizer and allowed the hair to air dry. Next morning, I used a water hair mist and Jamaican Black Castor Oil to seal. My hair is soft and smooth and has some texture too. I absolutely can't wait for 2019 to end LOL. For the next 10 weeks, I'll do weekly wash, Co was during the week and also keep up with my vitamins. I have about 2 weeks worth of vitamins left. Once I'm done with it, I'll be using the Rainbow light prenatal vitamins to make sure I have iron in my system. Stay tuned for my detox wash dya next weekend.

Virgin Hair Fertilizer + Dr. Miracle

Image
For the most part of this year, I've been using the virgin hair fertilizer on my scalp daily. It's a pkamde but doesn't weigh down my hair nor clog my pores. Ever since I got the braids, I've been using it to calm my dry scalp. Getting the braids installed really shocked my scalp so for the first week, it was itchy and dry. Now, I couldn't use any moisturizer to prevent unraveling hence I stuck to the hair fertilizer. Aside the peppermint in it, it's very light to apply to the Scalp providing the soothing effects I wanted. For my edges, I still use Dr. Miracle Temple and Nape balm and I love it!Because I'll be braiding more often, I've been very careful to leave my edges alone. The hair ought look rugged but I don't mind. Keeping the edges intact is the main point. I apply the Dr. Miracle Temple and Nape balm (click here to shop Shop.ghanaianemprezz.com) about 4 times a week, during the day time. By the end of the current braids, I'm expecting m…

First Protective Style for 2019

Image
The whole surprise laid in the fact that I'd planned to braid in April but somehow, my hair dresser has been able to install box braids for me!We used 3 packs as I requested for long braids. I will keep them for 8 weeks and get a new one installed. Why?The goal this year, as I mentioned, is to reach shoulder length and one way to do this is to protect the hair. Now, considering that the hair is super short, daily combing won't augur well with the retention I want hence braids will be a good option for the year. In other news, I'm 4 weeks post relaxer and it's very exciting seeing new growth come in.I'm still on the Synergy hair skin and nails vitamins for the next 20 days. After that, I may opt for Alive gummies or women's gummies for the remainder of the year. 
I haven't mentioned any relaxer application because the touch up at the earlier part of January was to cover up the bald edges I had. Fortunately the edges are growing back. If all goes well, my hair…
