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 ­čÖé

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.

16 Feb

Having 4b/4c hair can be very frustrating sometimes especially when your newly natural and you have no idea to do with your tight curls. Here is a list of Vloggers that I love and go to for inspiration ALL the time.

*Also keep in mind that someone doesn’t have to have your same hair type for you to know how to handle and moisturize your hair, everyones different*

VLOGGERS!

– glamfun

I love her so much she is so funny and is nothing but honest! 

– 4cHairChick

She has lots of experience and is very helpful with tips and styling products recommendations. 

-Dawnyele

She was the reason why I didn’t stop my natural hair journey, she was always committed to putting up videos on videos on Youtube and she always share her trials and Eros and her success. Although she is no longer with us, she is a┬ádefinitely┬ánatural hair inspiration of my for not only 4c hair but natural hair.

-Joulezy

OMG! Joulezy is who I got to when I think that 4c hair cant be defined! She has so many cool tips on bringing out your natural hair pattern or even making different curl patters with rollers, perm rods and curl formers!

-IKnowLee

The first person I saw on youtube and the first person I went to when I just big chopped. She is so knowledgeable and is very helpful with tips on styling and creating looks that people think that type 4 hair can never do. Although I’m nt sure what she places herself on a hair typing chart she looks like a 4b/ 4c to me.

I LOVE TWO STRAND TWISTS!!!!! pt. 2

12 Feb

Like I said in my previous post I love, LOVE, LOVE two strand twists! Two strand twists are stylish and fun to mess around with especially because this is one of the times you can mess around with your hair and not over manipulate it. The possibilities are endless with the styles you can do with your twists. For example if you want to do a stylish up-do for your prom, wedding or a very important even you can pin up your twists and add hair accessories. Last but not least when I do two strand twists I keep them in for at least a week which is very helpful because I don’t have to wake up early in the morning just to do my hair. The reason I listed are reason why I believe I’m in LOVE with two strand twist.

Tell me what you think about two strand twists and I will be making a post soon on how I maintain my twists!

Moisture Mix

8 Feb

So I currently have medium sized, MBL box braids and their so fun to have. The creative styles are endless but under they faux hair lies ┬á my hair that I still have to take care of if i want to retain length. How I take care of my hair with box braids is really short and simple to do all you need is a empty spray bottle that you can put olive oil, shea butter, leave-in and water in. These four ingredients is the reason why my hair is so moisturized and smells amazing (LOL). A good thing about including the shea butter is that it makes my faux and real hair have shine which is hard to keep after having braids for about one month. I’ve had my hair braid since January 1 2013 and I can say now on February ┬á8 2013 I have a little over an inch of new hair growth!!!!!!!!!!!! I can recommend this mix to anyone who wants to moisturize their hair in protective styles or moisturize their hair with something regularly that smells good and keep hair manageable.

Moisture mix:

30% water

40% olive oil

20% shea butter

10% leave in

Try it its certainly worth it! Tell me if this mix work well for you and/or if you have another Moisture Mix you would like to tell me about?
