This is an awesome Coconut wash off conditioner. What I mostly like is the SMEEL. The coconut smell is the best and it is very smooth. Nothing big but I really love it.💗 I will be posting more about Skincare.

Three Common Hair Questions Answered!
I've been getting quite a few questions all pertaining to haircare. So I thought I would take the time to dive into a few of the most common that I have been hearing from you guys. Q: How do I enhance my curls and avoid frizz? A: Curly hair is naturally dry, so moisture is the key to making your curls happy. There are a few things you can do to promote healthier and hydrated curls. Use a sulfate-free shampoo or Co-wash like AS I AM - Coconut Cleansing Conditioner to prevent it from stripping natural oils from the hair. Conditioner like SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner specially formulated for curly hair will have extra moisturizing properties. Curls - Blueberry CURL Control Paste Styling gel is excellent for controlling frizz and flyaways. Q: Is there any way I can make my hair grow faster? A: Sadly, no, but not all hope is lost. You may not be able to grow your hair faster, but you can make sure that the hair you have makes it to a longer length. A diet that is rich in Zinc and Biotin keeps the hair healthy enough to meet its full potential. Q: I want to grow my hair longer but my ends get really damaged and eventually split. Do I have to get it cut? A: unfortunately, you have to cut it to grow it. After five weeks of growth with no trim, you will get bigger split ends, and you will have to cut more off in the long run. It may not seem like it, but you end up saving time and length by trimming every 3-4 weeks.
Hydrating hair mask￼
Hair Type: Fine, straight Hair issues: Dry, frizzy and some breakage My Natural hair color is a dark brown with a natural Auburn hint to it. For years now I have had my hair dyed with blonde highlights and light brown low lights. This has caused my hair to be dry & frizzy with some breakage. As most of us have during this the quarantine I have been using a lot of Face masks and hair masks. This is one of my favorite hair masks I have tried It left my hair feeling soft, hydrated, smooth and more manageable, it gave life back to my hair and also smells amazing. You can use it as a leave in conditioner or a one minute hair mask, or everyday conditioner. I use it a 2 to 3 times a week as a hair mask & leave it in for 2 mins then wash out. I have never tried it as a leave in conditioner. I love that this hair mask is 98% natural and has no silicones, or parabens and it’s vegan! It’s only $5.77 at Walmart and this is something I will be repurchasing this again. GARNIER - Hydrating Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask + Aloe Extract

Trader Joe’s hidden gem
Trader Joe’s is such a underrated place to shop for beauty products, yet they have some really great options! This Trader Joe’s hair mask was so affordable! It’s under $5. It has a nice thick buttery consistency and smells like coconut and Shea butter. My hair looks and feels so soft after using this product in the shower. I first shampoo and then apply this mask from root to tips of my hair and leave on for approx 2-3 minutes. I will absolutely be repurchasing this mask when I run out!

Curly Hair - Deep Conditioner
Deep conditioning is absolutely essential for curly hair in my opinion! Of course they add moisture back to the hair, which for curly hair is extremely important, but they can add strength back into it too! I deep condition my hair at least once a week, usually using my Camille Rose - Oud Rich Infusion Moisture Treatment because my curls are usually super thirsty, but once a month I like to use a protein treatment and a cholestol treatment. The Camille Rose - Buritti Nectar Repair Cholesterol Treatment is Camille Rose's updated take on a cholestol treatment. It has buritti fruit oil which is high in Omega 3, 6 and 9. It will repair dry and brittle hair. If your looking to add softness back into your curls then a cholestol treatment is what you need! If you have damaged and split hair then you should add a protein treatment to your hair care routine! The Camille Rose - Nangai & Tsubaki Strength Restore Protein Treatment is my favorite and won't leave your hair feeling dry or straw like. It's a mix of vitamin A, E and Beta Carotene. It leaves my hair stronger and smoother. I'd love to know what your favorite deep conditioners are! Let me know in the comments! Another favorite of mine is the Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask .

Perfect light weight hair oil!
#cheriepartner I have bleached my hair so many times and therefore have been left with really dry and often tangly hair, I’m always on the lookout for products that will hydrate, add shine and make my hair feel and look softer. I absolutely love the KeraStraight - Ultimate Oil !! Not only does this product make my hair smell amazing, but it’s very lightweight and instantly adds a nice healthy glow to my hair. I usually put it on my damp hair after coming out of the shower to help detangle it, or I will use 1 pump of the oil after I curl my hair to give the curls some added shine. The bottle also says that it can be used on damp hair before blow drying, however I almost never blow dry my hair. I usually apply the oil and let it air dry. It can also help tame flyaways. Unlike other hair oils I’ve used, this one is not sticky and doesn’t weigh my hair down. The texture is a bit thinner and doesn’t stay on my hands which is great. @cherie
My secrets for medium width hair
Hair width shows the thickness of the strands of the hair. it is very easy to determine hair width. You can take one piece of the hair from a brush and see it under the light. If the hair could be seen easily and looks wide, it is coarse hair. if you cannot see your hair clearly, it is fine hair. between coarse hair and fine hair is medium width hair. the strands of coarse hair are very wide, and it is the strongest hair among all hair types. Fine hair has a very small width, which means it is delicate. Medium hair is not very thick or thin. It is strong and elastic. I have medium width hair. it is the most common hair type and can cover scalp well. It can be controlled easily. The hair type looks thick and is not easily get damaged. To maintain the shine and health of medium width hair, there are few tips. One is limit heat styling. Always use heat styling tool can reduce the moisture of the hair and make hair drier and less manageable. The second tip is to apply a high-quality shampoo that can bring nutrition to the hair. I recommend one good shampoo, Ogx’s Quenching Coconut Curls Shampoo. I like this one because it contains natural ingredients, including coconut oil, honey and citrus oil. It feels really moisturizing after washing. The shampoo gets the hair clean and leaves it soft. It makes my hair to be less tangled and very shiny, bouncy and voluminous. My hair is hydrated and never feel dry after washing, and never feel oily or greasy. I use it with the conditioner. Both work well with each other to make my hair silky soft. Last but not least, when washing the hair, remember do not use very hot water. Using hot water may harm the hair and reduce the moisture of the hair.

Shea Butter for 4C, Kinky, Coily Hair
I love shea butter. That’s it, there is nothing else to it. For me, it has been a staple in my hair regimen for the last 3 years. This butter is so nurturing and good for the skin and hair that its uses and benefits are endless. Whether used alone, within a formula, in conjunction with other products, it is always a win! You might be wondering what kind of shea butter should I get with soooo many being marketed. It can get a little confusing but I’ll make it easy for you! When shopping for shea butter, you’ll see phrases like refined, unrefined, whipped, raw, scented, etc. This is because of the various ways you can modify shea butter. For my hair, because of its thick and sometimes very dry and coarse hair, I like to use it raw and unrefined. Here are my two ways to use shea butter! Great as a hair moisturizer! Because of the thickness of Shea butter it does have the ability to weigh your hair down depending on the thickness and texture of your hair. For my kinky coily hair it is excellent to take a little, rub it between my hands to emulsify, and then apply. Excellent for a deep conditioner! What I love doing is melting down shea butter and combining it with my favorite conditioner, maybe some honey, and if I’m really trying to moisturize, some avocado as well. Combining all of this together makes for an amazing deep conditioner. You can order Shea butter online like Amazon or purchase it from your local beauty supply store. Tell me how you use shea butter for your natural hair? :)
