Deep conditions with braids

18 Mar

Protective styles are great to use when you want to grow your hair and prevent breakage but protective styles can actually mess up your hair if not taken care of correctly. For one, you shouldn’t chafe your hair regimen just because you have a protective style in. Being consistent really matter when it come to hair. One thing on your regimen. That shouldn’t change is wash day! My wash day is every Sunday like many naturals and what I love to do is deep condition. When I deep condition in braids I make sure I start at the scalp n and work my way down. After that I make sure I put deep conditioner on every inch of my individual braids because I don’t want to miss anything(wastes product but better safe then sorry). Enough of me rambling I am going to tell you how I make my smell good conditioning mix.

Materials:
Cantu Shea butter leave in repair cream
Extrav Virgin Olive Oil(EVOO)
Conditioner(your fav that puts in moisture in your hair)
Plastic fork
Bowl/cup

Instructions:
First mix the cantu Shea butter and EVOO in a container and mix until the mix starts to look like yogurt. After that put in your favorite conditioner and mix until its as thick as you want it then add your favorite oil(mine is coconut oil). After that continue to mix and let for about 5 min. While you separate your hair. Then take the fork you used to mix the ingredients together and apply the mix on to your finger tips then apply to scalp in each section. Do that in each section the take remaining conditioner and apply it to your braids from the root to the tip(or where your hair stops). Keep the mix in you hair for as long as you want, the minimum be 30 min, then rinse out and rub the tips of your finger on your scalp to assure you get all the build up of your scalp.

Another hair goal of mines!!!

17 Mar

I know you guys must be tired of me talking about 2014 as the year of opportunity… Hair opportunity but I really think this year will be a great year! I know many natural don’t really like to set a goal for themselves because if they don’t eat to a certain length they get disappointed but I like setting goals for my self, I like to be disappointed it makes me push harder for what I want. The picture I attached to this post was a picture I saw on insta and tumblr and I couldn’t help to love everything about the picture. Her hair was what I loved the most and I’ve decided this is my hair length goal for this year. With a lot of deep conditioning, sealing and sprinting with water I’m sure I can make it there! Wish me luck guys 🙂

Cantu Shea butter leave in conditioning repair cream

13 Mar

Cantu Shea butter claim the product will leave u with soft, shiny and manageable hair…… And so it did! Not only did this product live up to its claim It can be used by so many hair types for several different styles. People can use this product for a braid out, twist out, Bantu knot out and for a east detangling session. This product is on my favorites list for my type 4 thick hair. I will most defiantly be making more post on the different way I use this product. For now in my hair journey this 16 oz. jar of smell good leave in will be around for a while.
