Hey kinks what's up?  Hope y'all are doing exceptionally well today.. So today we are going to be talking about the benefits and the importance of deep conditioning.

DEEP CONDITIONING HELPS STRENGTHEN YOUR HAIR: The most important thing for a 4 type hair natural is to have strong healthy hair and this is where deep conditioning comes into play it improves the hair by penetrating the hair shaft, conditioning treatments can help reduce breakage and split ends and improve your hair's health.

KEEPS YOUR HAIR MOISTURISED: Our type of hair have a very high tendency to look very dry, plane and dirty even when it is clean. Deep conditioning helps retain moisture for a longer period of time and keep it that way.

5 TIPS TO HELP REDUCE SPLIT ENDS AND BREAKAGE

Image
Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

Okay so to the post what is a split end?  The end of a hair strand is damaged resulting in the strand separating into two or more fragments.

Hair breakage is more of a problem for naturals than split ends because split ends is as a result of many activities that a TRUE natural try to avoid..

Most naturals really suffer from hair breakage and I used to be a part of the team (even do my hair still breaks it has reduced a lot)

Here are five tips to help you manage hair breakage..

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.

3 REASONS WHY YOUR HAIR ISN'T GROWING

Hey kinks what's up y'all? Happy weekend darlings..

So based on the numerous questions on hair growth, here are three reasons why your hair isn't growing.


YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  


YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way).. There are a lot of DIY's out there but you have to be c…

MY NATURAL HAIR IS FRUSTRATING ME

Image
Hey kinks what's up?  Hope y'all having a great week?...

So I posted this
  picture a couple of days ago and I opened the gate way to more rants from my fellow naturalistas that I have been getting a lot this year..  So I decided to do this blog post.... Here are a few  points to help you with your hair frustrations and I as give the points, I will take you through my hair journey of almost three years (3 in October)


WHY DID YOU GO NATURAL? When people complain to me about their hair the question I ask is why did you go natural? Was it because it's a trend?... For me being natural is more than just what is growing on my head.. I wanted to redefine the definition of the world's standard of beauty, the chemicals in the relaxer is very bad and will eventually damage my hair forever (and I didn't want that), I grew into my own and I wanted to nurture what God naturally gave me.. When I made these resolutions my hair frustrated me less..  
DO YOU STUDY YOUR HAIR? I know…
