Starting the Journey to Healthy Curls
I started my journey to happy, healthy waves when I started quarantine (mid March). It’s been about seven months, and I’d like to drop some tips for people just starting! Some tips for starting: you do NOT need to break the bank when you’re just starting. A leave in conditioner and curl cream are all you need to get started! there is a transition period, and things will be rough at first. When you transition, your hair may get worse or not change before it gets better. Hair in transition needs moisture and a patient, gentle hand 💗 start with a clarifying shampoo. Buildup from everything you’ve done to and put on your hair will make transitioning and improving your hair 1000x harder don’t get overwhelmed-you don’t need to understand protein/moisture balance, density, what ingredients are good and bad, and also the other intricacies when you’re just starting keep a journal and take progress photos! I can’t even tell you how helpful it is Tips on your hair type: your actual hair TYPE, or how tight/loose your hair is is nearly irrelevant, especially when you start your type may be different throughout your hair, and it will change as you progress what’s more important is hair density, porosity, and damage ^ that’s what will affect how and which products are best for your hair Things I wish I’d known: don’t do everything at once! Add a product, wait and see how your hair reacts you don’t need to follow every curly girl rule! Your hair is unique and some rules will do more harm than good once you get out of your transition stage, experiment! Different types of styling will make a world of difference take photos of your journey! I feel like I’ve missed out on being able to actually SHOW how much my hair has improved because I hardly have any photos from the start Favorite products: PAUL MITCHELL - Clarifying Shampoo Three I have hard water so a weekly clarifying shampoo combined with a deep conditioner is essential to prevent buildup. This shampoo leaves my hair so smooth and light without being harsh! A necessity if you have hard water Aunt Jackie's - Curl Boss Coconut Curling Gelée A cheap, easy to find and super reliable gel. Still my favorite. Makes a nice cast, adds definition, and when scrunched out leaves a voluminous, soft curl that remains consistent until your next wash day aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner My absolute favorite feel conditioner, perfect for transition and is still my staple seven months in. Cheap and last forEVER! Nice smell, can be washed out immediately for a lighter condition or left 5+ minutes for an extra deep condition I’ll also strongly recommend apple cider vinegar washes-never has my hair been softer, smoother, shinier, and clumped easier then after an acv rinse(definitely will get around to doing a post on this!) Overall, just be patient with and love your hair and it will love you!

Hair Static? Oh, Yes! Your Hair Really Needs👀
👀What causes hairf static? Static hair occurs when your hair builds up an electric charge, meaning it has gained some extra electrons thanks to friction or a change in humidity. That makes the strands of your hair repel each other, leaving your hair frizzy and difficult to style. Plus, the elements, a lack of moisture in the air, and heated indoor environments can all exacerbate static hair. 👀How to get rid of static hair? ⭐️1. Try Anti-frizz sheets ⭐️2. Avoid plastic combs Using plastic combs and brushes on your hair can cause static electricity, much like that old trick you did as a kid of making your hair stand up by rubbing a plastic balloon on it.  ⭐️3. Massage your Scalp Regularly Scalp contains natural oil. Sebum, which is secreted from the glands keeps the hair moisturized. It also prevents static electricity buildup in your hair. Oil massages have other great benefits all well. It helps in blood circulation that helps in hair regrowth. Oil massages also keep your hair shiny. ⭐️4. Shampoo less often The more you shampoo, the more you’re stripping the natural oils from your hair. Instead of washing your hair every day, shampoo every other day.  ⭐️5. Make Deep-Conditioning Mask Regularly If your hair tends toward dry or your hair is otherwise damaged, you may find that regularly using a conditioner isn’t enough to keep your strands feeling moisturized. In that case, using a deep-conditioning mask or treatment once a week or so can help restore your hair’s shine softness. Products to try: ● PALMER'S - Coconut Oil Formula Deep Conditioning Protein Pack ● ORIBE - Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Masque ● BrandFree Japanese essential oil hair mask high gloss non-steaming conditioner repairs dry and rough hair smooth and moisturizing ⭐️6. Never skip conditioner While the surfactant ingredients in some shampoos can contribute a charge to your hair while they clean, conditioners are designed to counteract that. Sure, they’re also designed to help seal the hair cuticle and improve its overall shine and manageability. But if you’re trying to counteract frizz or static, the charge thing is the main reason to never skip conditioner. Products to try: ●aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner ● R+Co - Television Perfect Hair Conditioner ⭐️7. Use a Moisturizing Shampoo A moisturizing shampoo locks the natural moisture of hair strands, thereby preventing them from drying up. This will not only prevent dryness but will also preserve the natural oil secretion of hair stands called sebum. This will prevent your hair from building up electricity charge as well. Products to try: ● rahua - rahua Hydration Shampoo ● Herbal Essences - Bio Renew Coconut Milk & Aloe Hydrating Hair Mask for Dry Damaged Hair Hope this would helps, sharing is caring.

How I fully transitioned and grew my 4b/c hair
My hair journey is something that means a lot to me. As a child I was always known to have hair so long it reached the middle of my back. Whether my hair was curly, straight, braided or in twists it generated a lot of talk. That’s why when I went natural and lost basically all the length that I somewhat had it was such a shocker. I was natural as a child before I began to get a relaxer at around 3rd grade. It was needed since my mom had just gotten over breast cancer for a second time and my long thick curls were too much for her to take care of. My hair still retained its length, even as I went into middle school but once I hit 9th grade I’d realized something. My length was gone. Now I will say SOOOO many hair mistakes were made when I began doing my own hair in high school. I put too much heat to it, I manipulated it too much, and I didn’t care about my strands enough. I honestly don’t know at what point I realized I wanted to go natural but at the end of my sophomore year I did. My mother who is a very traditional black woman when it comes to hair made it crystal clear there was no way in hell I was getting the big chop I wanted. Because of this I was forced to transition over. I vividly remember the first product I used as a natural being SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie this served a good purpose since my number one goal at the time was curl definition. I don’t mind that as much anymore because I have come to terms with the fact that my hair type is NOT loose curls. Since quarantine that goal has changed. My goal I’m March went from “how do I get my hair to curl” to “okay how do I retain length and keep my hair healthy” and I knew my answer. Braids. I’ll be the one to say I absolutely LOVE braids but I HATE getting them professionally done for so many reasons. The main one being when my scalp gets too dirty the braids gotta go. That is a problem when braids cost 100 and I’m over them in a month 🗿. This pushed me to doing my own braids minus the braiding hair. Every two-three weeks I take my braids out, condition my dry dirty hair, wash the conditioner out, wash my hair, deep condition, and prep my hair for braids. Sometimes I blow dry my hair before I braid it (because I want the length😗) and sometimes I just braid my coily hair as is. This has helped keep my hair healthy and grow it all quarantine. These are the products I’ve used: AFRiCAN PRIDE - Olive Miracle Anti-Breakage Leave-in Conditioner AFRiCAN PRIDE - Olive Miracle Anti-Breakage Growth Oil DOO GRO - Mega Thick Hair Oil ECOCO - Eco Style Argan Oil Gel ECOCO - Eco Style Professional Styling Gel Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil cantu - Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioning Repair aussie - Miracle Moist 3 Minute Miracle with Avocado for Dry Hair Repair Maui MOISTURE - Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask Aunt Jackie's - Don't Shrink Elongating Curling Gel

Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp!
I’ve always put coconut oil in my hair, since I was a kid. It was something mom would do for me once a week, with a nice hot oil head massage. I never realized it then, but those hot oil massages helped my scalp health. My hair is about a 2b/3a curl, so it’s pretty frizzy and can be dry, and I’m dandruff prone. I’ve never loved that about it until 5 years ago when I started to be more meticulous about my scalp health. So coconut oil is amazing and I still do it. But now I’ve been mixing other oils and products into my routine. Now my weekly routine is: 1. Mask day - SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner start with the scalp, massage it in. Then focus on the ends and make sure it’s absorbed. Focus on other dry areas. Brush through. 2. Wash day - L'ORÉAL - Elvive Dream Lengths Long Hair Shampoo followed by L'ORÉAL - Elvive Dream Lengths Long Hair Conditioner And then after rinsing everything out, wring out excess water. Let air dry for 10 minutes. Then add a dollop of L'ORÉAL - Elvive Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream and a dollop of aussie - Miracle Moist 3 Minute Miracle with Avocado for Dry Hair Repair on the palm of your hand and mix the two products before working it through damp hair. (I always bend over flipping my hair forward to go from root to end). Detangle with fingers. 3. Post wash day - maintain scalp health with a small amount of oil mix. I mix coconut oil with black cumin seed oil and add a couple of drops of rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils. 4. Mid week day - another round of oil mix. Add rose hip essential oil if necessary for extra hydration. 5. Same as 4 6. Same as 4 7. Pre mask day - work towards heavier oils, if your hair can take it. Mine LOVES extra virgin olive oil. So I usually mix a little with coconut and black cumin seed oils with a little bit of rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils. Work it through all of the hair, not just the scalp. I usually braid my hair afterwards to keep the oils from rubbing onto my clothing or any furniture. Rosemary is helpful for creating new hair follicles so the hair follicles are denser (since there are more). Eucalyptus is good for combating dandruff. Rose hip is good for deep hydration, which can help combat dandruff since the scalp doesn’t get dry enough to start flaking. Coconut oil, EVOO, black cumin seed oils help hydrate the hair. They can be heavier so if your hair is finer, use avocado, almond, and/or jojoba oils instead. One week of this specific routine with the L’Oréal and Shea Moisture products and my hair is softer and less tangled. So less hair fallout when brushing. My scalp is also really moisturized, so it’s not itchy or dry or starting to flake. Hair journey updates will occur as often as I remember to do so.

High end VS Drugstore 🙇🏼‍♀️🙇🏼‍♂️
For me, the most important thing about buying a hair care product is cost performance! Because many products have high premiums, exquisite high-end packaging accounts for half of the cost. So every time I use a high-priced product with high expectations, I am often disappointed. And if you are just focus on the ingredients in the back list, not of much use. For me, the best way to evaluate is only for my own use. So when I buy product A, I alwaysl ask sales to provide me a sample of product B. There are some gaps in the price of the products I want to compare today. OI is defined as a high-end hair care product from DAVINES brand, and AUSSIE is a product that can be purchased by Walmart. However, I want to tell everyone that AUSSIE is really no worse than OI product. Package Design: Aussie is a squeezable bottle, which is more convenient to use. When not in use, the high-density silica gel in the squeeze port can seal the jar tightly. OI is a round can, and you need to grab it f each time. So I often make more. From this point of view, I prefer AUSSIE. Texture: AUSSIE is a translucent light yellow emulsion texture, which looks more moisturized. OI is a pure white texture with higher density and looks more astringent. This is related to his silicone-free formula. PRICE: Aussie is $14 for 250ml; and OI values $40 for the same size; they have a three times price difference! So dupe! For these two products, I prefer AUSSIE. Because I can truly feel that my hair become hydrated. Its texture makes me feel very comfortable. OI does not have any particularly big disadvantages, you can feel the hair becomes fluffy and it is not easy to produce oil. But for the same effect, who would be willing to choose a more expensive one? davines - OI Conditioner aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Hair Conditioner

These are definitely dry hair saviours!!
Hey girls, are your hair rather dry and coarse? Maybe we got envied by friends about how uneasily it gets oily, dry-hair girls do have their own concerns, right? Well, you are not alone, my hair is super dry and it’s also naturally wavy. Tending unwell and carelessly, it will look unhealthy, just like straws. And after searching for hair care products in the market, I have finally met my combo of products which can perfectly do the job of adding moisture and shine to my hair and always keep it in a good state. ◇ What are they: Aussie Repair Miracle Shampoo, Aussie Deep Treatment 3​ Minute Miracle Reconstruction and ogx Renewing argan oil of morocco. ◇ The reason my hair is dry: for one thing, just as you are born into a certain skin type, your hair type is also related to genetics and in my case, it is on the dry side. For another, I have dyed my hair at home several times and I guess the hair-dyer did damage to my hair in ways of affecting cuticles, which provide protection for hair. And of course, I guess blowing drying hair all the time is also quite harmful. ◇ Steps and tips of using these products for dry hair: ■ Avoid washing your hair on a daily basis: less is more and your dry hair just doesn’t get oily or dirty that easy anyway ■ Use luke warm water ■ Use the shampoo to wash your hair whilst carefully and gently message your scalp ■ Use a tower to gently wipe off most of the water ■ Apply the treatment and leave it there for five minutes or even longer. Some gentle message at this step would also definitely be beneficial. ■ Towel dry the hair and apply a thick layer of the argan oil ◇ Ingredients that are playing the role in these products: Macadmia nut oil, balm mint extract, argan oil of morocco, etc. Looking for these ingredients when you are selecting hair care products. Now my straws are saved and yours can too~~!

Curly Hairstyle Routine
For reference, I have type 3A curls and thin hair! This before picture is how my hair looks after going to the beach and after not washing it for 3 days. This is my routine for prepping my hair for any type of activity immediately after I wash it. I’ve already provided information on the shampoo and conditioner that I use, so be sure to check that post and the curly hair tips posts for further details that will help during the washing process. When I’m done with my hair washing, I proceed by adding the aussie - Miracle Curls with Coconut Oil Paraben Free Detangling Milk Treatment . For a more thorough review on that product, please take a look at my previous posts. Following this, I proceed to by brushing my hair with Wet brush - Original Detangler . This is a MUST is you have curly hair and want to avoid losing excess hair. Plus, it is SUPER CHEAP. The Intelliflex Bristles are firm yet soft and covered with SofTips. The bristles are firm enough to pull through the tangles, yet they’re soft enough not to get caught and rip through the hair. It has helped me reduce the amount of time when it comes to detangling and the amount of pain I used to go through. Just remember to always start from the tips and work your way to the top when brushing. I then proceed by wrapping my hair with a cotton t-shirt to help lock the moisture. Depending on how my day goes, I sometimes leave it longer, but generally I leave it on for 20-30 minutes. Then I proceed with the actual hairstyling using a diffuser. CONAIR - InfinitiPRO 1875 Watt AC Pro Hair Dryer Rose Gold Using this hair dryer has accelerated and simplified my hairstyle process! It is pretty affordable and has both ceramic and ionic technology. Ceramic technology is what releases non-damaging infrared heat to your hair, while ionic technology works by using electrons to break the water molecules and, thus, allows the hair to dry faster and more hydrated while reducing frizz. In addition to this, it has a cool setting AND cold setting, which are the ones that I use when I’m styling. DON’T DRY USING THE WARM OR HOT SETTINGS! While this hair dryer does a GREAT job at preventing damage with its technology, hair styling regularly with warm or hot settings diminish the levels of moisture that your hair is able to retain, so you wan’t to avoid that as much as possible. It also comes with a diffuser, so you don’t have to buy one. I finish by adding hairspray. aussie - Sun Touched Shine Hairspray I know many shy away from hairsprays for various reasons, but hear me out. I avoid at all costs mousse and gels, which tend to be much more harmful than hairsprays. Besides, this is ONE OF A KIND. It has UV PROTECTION, JOJOBA OIL, & SEA KELP. There’s no way that this harms your hair. Just avoid soaking your hair in it and you’ll see WONDERS! And VOILÁ! The results are clearly seen with the after picture!

Best Leave-In Conditioners for Type 3A Curls
Happy Sunday everyone, As promised, here are the best leave-in conditioners that I have/or continue to use that have worked best on me. Just a reminder that I have type 3A curls and have also thin hair, so it may not work best for everyone. However, I just wanted to share them because they are also pretty underrated and unknown in the industry. aussie - Miracle Curls with Coconut Oil Paraben Free Detangling Milk Treatment The name speaks for itself honestly. This is my FAVORITE leave in conditioner so far. I cannot emphasize the difference in my hair when I used this product and then switched to try other leave-ins. The difference was so overwhelming that I decided to stick with it. You will notice that I use a lot of conditioning that has milk and has detangling properties because part of taking care of our hair is keeping it moistured (NOT WITH PURE OILS) and not allowing it to get too tangled. I will post, in the near future, other tips on how to minimize tangling in curly hair, so stay tuned! I also like that this product has small quantities of Coconut and Jojoba oil. While I NEVER recommend buying and applying pure oil, the fact that these are blended with milk allows for the properties of these oils to work more effectively without clogging your hair shafts. Coconut oil helps PROVIDE more moisture, while Jojoba oil helps SEAL in that moisture. Also, jojoba oil is the oil most similar to out bodies’ natural sebum, so this eases into our hair much more effectively that the other oils. You won’t see these mixtures in common products, so I highly recommend. Carol's Daughter - Hair Milk 4-in-1 ''Combing'' Crème This is another great product that I also use! What I do is use the Miracle Curls right after I wash my hair and style it. I use the Carol’s Daughter product on a daily basis to retouch my hair before going out. It’s really nice to use due to its detangling, styling, defining, and shining properties! And without the need of adding oils, which I like. novex by EMBELLEZE - My Curls Memorizer Leave In A product from Brazil that I really love! I’m definitely thinking of going back to this once the Carol’s Daughter product is completely consumed to see how it works alongside the Miracle Curls. The uniqueness of this product is the use of cranberry which help maintain a healthy and non-irritant scalp with its antioxidant, antibacterial, AND anti-inflammatory properties. And it also has a blend of oils in SMALL quantities that help moisturize and seal that moisture for a healthy hair without clogging the hair shafts. Please let me know how your hair feels if you decide to try these products for yourself! I would love to see if these posts are helping anyone, as that is the goal! Take care!

UNDER $10! Choose the right natural hair products from durgstore!
I have thick natural hair and as a young girl just out of university, I am always on a budget😰😰. After years of trying out different high end products and getting the same “OK” results, I started looking elsewhere. Below is a list of hair products I use faithfully that are all under $10. aussie - Miracle Moist 3 Minute Miracle with Avocado for Dry Hair RepairThis is a great deep conditioner for days when you can’t do the whole thirty minute deep conditioning routine. You can find Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle for as low as $3. aussie - Miracle Moist ConditionerThis is my favorite hair conditioner. I use this twice a week to condition and detangle my hair. aussie - Miracle Moist Shampoo . If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love the whole Aussie Moist line lol. ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil ShampooThis coconut milk shampoo by OGX is a steal. It smells like a tropical vacation in a bottle. It lathers nicely with only a small amount of product and leaves hair feeling soft and strong. The coconut oils moisturize and nourish your natural hair and the coconut milk and egg white proteins strengthen your relaxed hair. Eden Body Works Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner This has got to be the best deep conditioner under $10. After using this product on my hair the shine and elasticity was out of this world. If you are struggling with dryness and need a moisture boost I strongly suggest adding this deep conditioner to your regimen. Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Cowash Eden BodyWorks is one of my favorite brands and the Coconut Shea Cleansing Cowash is my favorite cowash. It’s one of the only cleansing conditioners that makes my hair and scalp feel squeaky clean. It also has pretty good slip, which makes detangling easy. It comes in a 16 oz jar, and you can typically find it for about $9. Curls Goddess Curls Botanical Gel Looking for a botanical gel to get your curls popping without flakes and crunch? This Goddess Curls Botanical Gel is your answer. This product will cure your wash and go woes, define your curls, and leave you with soft bouncy ringlets for less than $10. Sounds like a steal to me. Price: $8 cantu - Shea Butter for Natural Hair Deep Treatment Masque  I alternate between this and my Shea Moisture deep conditioning masque and it works just as good. I use it as least twice a month for thirty minutes at a time  and it keeps my curls poppin. Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo Trader Joe’s makes a great sulfate-free clarifying shampoo made with quality ingredients like peppermint, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil. A 16 oz bottle only costs $3.99. Maui MOISTURE - Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask It has a really nice smell, it’s made with quality ingredients, and it can also double as a leave-in. My hair loves aloe vera juice, which is the first ingredient in all Maui Moisture products. The price ranges from $8 – $9, I caught it on sale for only $6.99 Have you ever tried one of them before? Share your ideas with me!

FAVORITE dry shampoo for disobedient waves!
FAVORITE dry shampoo for disobedient waves!
Wavy hair is a CONSTANT fight, and this dry shampoo is my new favorite weapon! I have wavy hair (around 2b at the waviest) and am on the journey of learning the care for it. The last three months have been full of majors changes when it comes to hair care, including a few game changers (keep an eye out for a new post 👀). As I moved from washing my hair every other day to washing every 3-4 days, I found my hair was enjoying the moisture, but my roots were getting oily and flat 😔. I poked around online for a dry shampoo and bought this Aussie volume dry shampoo. It’s a sizable van and will certainly last me a long time. Packaging was cute as well, vibrant colors and good energy. First use was on day 3-did a light spray along my part. First impression was the smell. Super refreshing and unique. Often hair products have such a sickly sweet strong smell, which is a big no no for me. This scent was very natural, slightly floral and just overall refreshing and pleasant. I let it soak for a few second, then finger combed through. I also played with my hair to test the home/volume. This dry shampoo does a fantastic job of soaking up oil without feeling heavy. It has a very light hold and definitely provides some volume. Pros: nice, subtle scent light weight soaks oil well provides some volume great price large size Cons: pretty light hold most of volume came from oil being gone, not actual hold in spray Overall, this product is a staple in giving me a refresh on day 3/4. It also gives high ponytails an extra bounce! Great product, would definitely buy again! Product: aussie - Clean Volume Bounce Back Dry Shampoo
