Hey kinks! What's up? Welcome back to tegskinkytu.. Hope ya'all been have a swell time with your life and it's progress?
So today i have a quick story time for you and sharing some tips on why your hair might be dry.

As you all know I was on travels for a couple of months and in that time I tried to take care of my hair as much as I could but it didn't seem like much, because I felt that my hair kept feeling like it was dry and crusty so I just kept it in basic simple styles and didn't do much to it..
Now on a normal I am a moisturising queen, I HATE to see or feel that my hair is dry so I always make sure it's moisturised.
After much study and figuring out here are a couple of reasons why my hair was drying out and this could also be why your hair is drying out too

GELS AND ACTIVATORS: I was mostly on the go so I had to do styles that was easy and going and I had to use a lot of gels, gel serves as a good hold and in return you get to deal with dry crusty hair…

Hey kinks what's up?  How is everyone doing?.

No this is not a hair post,  but it is something that we have to pay attention to. The post is written by the one and only Amb Unyime-Ivy King, a prolific writer and the CEO of HTTC Communications, also the Author of  Burning Hurt...
She is just awesome to simply put it and this post is going to bless your life AS A SINGLE LADY!..


Your relationship status does not and should not define you. Being single is not a disease or an indication that something is wrong. You need to relax in the knowledge that God is weaving a beautiful story from your life, first of all. Rest in that understanding! Sure, it can be frustrating when you strongly desire to marry and cannot seem to find the right guy even when it looks as if there is a man in every corner, at the turn of the head, or all your close friends seem to be getting married. Some people are afraid of being lonely, but.... Loneliness is not tied to a relationship status. …


Hey kinks whats up y'all happy tuesday, i hope you guys are having or had a great day.

Let us just jump straight into today's post and as the post title implies its going to be my mid week routine for moisturizing my hair. Before i continue i would like to state here that i do as much as possible moisturize my hair but because The Lord blessed me with 4type African natural hair it is very very prone to always feeling and easily getting dry.

So to my midweek routine for my moisturizing my hair i keep it plain and simple, using a mixture in my spray bottle, shea butter and olive oil i am good and ready to go

SPRAY BOTTLE MIXTURE  ALOE JUICE: (Check previous post about how i make my aloe juice water) and i add olive oil and a drop of honey to the mix.  HOW TO MOISTURIZE Divide your hair into four sections, take the spray mixture and spray on one section of your hair and lightly finger detangle, A…


Hey kinks whats up ya'll happy happy Tuesday, I am really trying my hardest to stick to the blogging schedule and i am getting there.

So those of you that know me personally, know that I have been on travels for the past month and a half and it is some sort difficult maintaining a hair schedule at this time so in today's post i will be sharing with you some needed travel essentials that I use during this time to give my hair the most I can and share my travel kit pack.

WIDE TOOTH IRON AFRO COMB:  On a normal and a regular I do not like combing my hair, aside from it causing too much tension to my hair I just generally don't like the whole feel and process. As much as I have tried so hard to avoid combing, I use this wide tooth comb if I must. so this is an important must have if you are travelling or preparing to travel.

It will be very hard to carry along your big spray bottle, so getting a small 'finger spray' bottle will be very helpful for yo…


Hey kinks what's up y'all Happy weekend!

So in today's post I will be sharing with you ways in which you can work with a 'coax' hair or a 4b hair type.

P.S this wasn't the original post that was scheduled to go up today,  but the questions about how I got my hair to be soft was more than 10 in just a short period that I have been out of the house.

If you have a 4b hair type you will be needing these things to get your hair to Co operate:

WATER: This is your best friend if you have a thicker and stronger type of hair. Water restores your hair's pH level,  moisturises your hair and make your hair softer in  general. I advice you  put water into a tiny spray bottle and just carry it along with you and randomly spray your hair during the day.
Now I have met a couple of people who try to be extra but using Alkaline water,  rose water,  aloe vera water etc etc... All these waters are good but if you can't afford them don't stress yourself out!  Just use …


Hey kinks whats up? how is everyone doing today? HAPPY NEW MONTH! and i pray that everything God has in store of you will come to you in this new month, go fort and shine and prosper IN JESUS NAME...

So unto the post, co wash, my opinion on co washing... first of all for the benefit of those that do not know what co washing is, lets explain what it is.
co washing is replacing your shampoo with a conditioner, so instead of using a shampoo to wash your hair you use a conditioner. Most people do this every other week or once a week depending on their routine.

what is my opinion on co washing? If you are a reader of my blog you, you would know that my blog cater to the needs of the 4c/b hair type cos that is what is on my hair and i can only speak for this type of hair.
Time and time again i have admonished us to study our hair and know what works best for YOUR hair and how to get, and retain length. it is not because every youtuber is doing it that does not mean it is going to work for y…


Hey kinks what's up y'all Happy Tuesday and welcome back to tegskinkytu!

So I Only Just jumped on the band wagon of using Apple Cider Vinegar to rinse my hair and the benefits have been tremendous! I am one of those people that suffer from tender itchy painful scalp and this rinse has been working wonders on my hair, so sit back relax and learn about why apple cider vinegar is good for your hair and how to make the rinse!


Cleansing and Clarifying Using a multitude of products on our hair – like serums, gels, sprays, and masks – leads to product build-up.
