Hair growth secret!
Hi y’all! So I had chopped my hair in the beginning of the year, around March 2020, right before the pandemic got really bad. And it was around my shoulders when it was straight (see first pic). The second pic is from early December 2020, curly but when it’s straight it’s down to my mid back. So how did my grow that fast?? Well my secret, that’s really not that big of a secret, is SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner 🎉 This thing made my hair grow fast like HOLY MOLY!!! And many others swear by this as well! How do I use it? This is a little too heavy to put on all of my hair, so I focus on the scalp and the roots. Since the roots are where the hair follicle is growing, by focusing there, you’re ensuring the hair is healthy. Just put a little bit on your scalp, and I put a little extra on my drier spots. (Mine are usually right on my temples, the top of my head and right behind my ears.) And massage it in! That’s it! I do this maybe 2-4 times a week, depending on how my scalp is. It does build up so if your hair tends to be oilier, use less often or dilute it with avocado or jojoba oil!

Curly Girl Method! I've tried these so you don't need to try again!
I've tried several hair products for curly hair, and these are my favorite! Shampoos SheaMoisture - Argan Oil and Almond Milk Shampoo It smells like milk. I love that and the way this made my hair feel. Very smooth and non-greasy after washing. Conditioners SheaMoisture - Superfruit Complex 10 in 1 Renewal System Conditioner Some people don't like its scent, but I personally can accept it. The moisturizing effect is perfect. TRESemmé - Botanique Nourish + Replenish With Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Conditioner It's affordable and it's so large that you can use it for a long time. Apply it and wait 5-8 minutes, then your hair will be like seaweed. Kinky-Curly - Knot Today, Natural Leave In / Detangler It smells like coconut. I use it as a moisturizer. I have now purchased 3 bottles of this. My hair cannot get enough. It is pricey, but so worth it. It is the best leave in conditioner I have ever tried. The best part about it is it's sans silicones sulfates or waxes. If you're looking for a great detangler that doesn't leave your hair greasy, this is the one for you. Leave-in conditioners SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner It is a little greasy. I brush my hair with this leave in in during the shower and it keeps my hair silky and curls not frizzy Hair masks SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Masque I use it once every two weeks, staying for 15-20 minutes before washing off. After using it, it helps hydrate my hair. It’s very light and doesn’t dry with any residue! It leaves my curls feeling light weight! Curl defining gels DevaCurl - Light Defining Gel Soft Hold No-Crunch Styler I have medium length curly hair and I use about a quarter size for the initial scrunch from ends to root. I touch up around the entire head with another quarter size. Let dry and scrunch to release the cast from the gel. My hair and curls are so happy with this product. It is the holy grail for sure. SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie I use it to apply a little bit to the hair before setting. It makes your hair look a little oily.

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.

Shea Moisture Product Review!
Hey guys! As a curly girl, I am more than aware of Shea Moisture’s various lines and collections. I, personally, love their Jamaican Black Castor Oil collection. Specifically, the SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Rinse-Out Conditioner and SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner . I’ll do a review on these soon! Today, I was in my local CVS, and picked up SheaMoisture - Power Greens Hair Tea Rinse with Moringa & Avocado . I have been eyeing a lot of rinses for a while and I was excited to make this my first try. My next venture is for a rice water rinse! Fast Facts 1. Moringa Great for hair and skin, beneficial for your bodily health overall Packed with Amino Acids, the building blocks of cells, essential for hair growth 2. Avocado 🥑 Fantastic source of biotin which is great for stimulating hair growth Filled with omega-3 fatty acids and essential amino acids which coat the hair shaft so that the strands can retain moisture 3. Tea Rinses Rich in nutrients which help to add moisture to the hair and prevent frizz and flyways Promote hair growth, can balance pH levels, and can even enhance your curl definition. This product was only around 10 bucks and I think for what it claims to do, it was worth it. It is supposed to lightly cleanse the hair while leaving the hair soft and manageable. I rinsed my hair thoroughly with warm water and then applied the rinse. The reason for the four stars was because of my confusion. The directions say not to rinse this product...even though it is a gentle cleanser and a rinse. After putting the product in my hair, massaging it in and seeing the low lather that resulted, I decided to rinse it from my hair. You can kind of see the little suds on my hairline in the picture. Going past my confusion, I truly loved using this product. It did EXACTLY what it said it’s purpose was. A gentle clean while still keeping my hair soft. For individuals looking for a deeper clean, I would not recommend this product. For individuals that love a big lather when cleansing their hair I, also, would not recommend this product. After rinsing the product I applied my SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Rinse-Out Conditioner , let sit for an hour, then rinsed. I did my usual moisture method(take a look at my older posts to see) and just let my hair air dry. It honestly felt so great afterwards and CLEAN! I don’t know if I’ll repurchase but I’ll definitely up my tea rinse search! Have you guys ever tried a tea rinse? If so, how did you like it and what brand or was it DIY? Let me know!

How to have healthy and longer hair for PoC
My hair for years has been damaged and abused. I spent most of my days since childhood relaxing my hair because of cultural stereotypes that women should have straight hair. For reference, I had Shirley temple curls as a kid. I also spent my middle school days as the typical emo chick trying to straighten my hair and burned it- whoops. I stopped using relaxer about 2-3 years ago and started to do keratin 2-3 times a year. It improved my hair quite a bit but not all the way. Since the quarantine, I decided to try a whole new routine since I’m stuck at home. And I have to say, my hair looks completely different! I haven’t had keratin in awhile and my hair is nice and wavy. I don’t even need to blow dry it. I have to say my hair was quite parched so I decided to use a bunch of oils. My hair has always been up to my shoulders, never grew and even used to fall out. My tip outside of using the products listed is cut back on the hot tools. Try to find other ways to style your hair or do protective hair styles until you are satisfied with your texture. I sometimes used an INH ponytail when I didn’t feel like leaving my hair down or did a small bun. The INH ponytails are extremely cute too! Anyways my hair has grown about 3 inches in quarantine. Not exaggerating at all because I measured. I also was eating much better. I ate more vegetables like brocolli, spinach and mushrooms. these are my holy-grail products: Castor Oil (Handcraft blends on Amazon) Pura D’or Organic Fractioned Coconut Oil (on Amazon) Phyto Specific Baobab Oil SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner SACHAJUAN - SACHAJUAN Hair Repair Wild Growth Oil and Wild Growth Oil light (DO NOT GET AT AMAZON. They sell fakes. Try House of Beauty or go on their website for licensed resellers) Best way to use products: Basically the castor oil and coconut oil I use as a hair mask for an hour or two before I shower. As a pre-treatment. I use the sachajuan hair repair as a hair mask in the shower right after shampooing. Then after the conditioner I put the sheamoisture leave in conditioner, baobab oil and Hask Argan oil from Morocco Leave in Spray(not listed as a holy grail yet because I’ve only tried it once). The Wild growth oil you use once a week or every two weeks. And the Wild growth light oil you use a bit up to 3 times a week or two.

My absolutely crazy hair journey after chemo
When I lost my hair to chemo I was absolutely devastated. I always had long and thick wavy hair. After I lost it I was looking for absolutely everything and anything to grow my hair. The best thing is patience!! I know we want instant results, but you gotta learn your hair. I ended up growing curly hair to my surprise and didn’t know a single thing about taking care of it!! First off, I strongly recommend looking at the back of your shampoo bottles (yes even the ones that claim to be natural) and look for something called DMDM. This is SO bad for your hair and causes you to lose hair in the hand loads. For so long I wasn’t aware that this was in my shampoos and blamed chemo and medications for all my hair loss even after I grew it back. The shampoo I listed below has been a miracle! I found it at Marshall’s for 6.99 including the hydrating conditioner. I also apply the leave in conditioner and I saw results in 2 months. I went from barely reaching my shoulders to the 3rd picture above. I also use the spray after my hair dries a little more and after I use a styler. Also try transitioning to 2-3 washes a week it’ll do wonders. I’d also recommend using a scalp brush in the shower to get your roots and make sure you’re removing product build up. After you get out try using a hair turban instead of your towel, it’ll reduce breakage!!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
