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

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…

WHATS IN MY PRE POO?

Hey kinks what's up y'all?..

So based on request I will be doing this post.

Let me state here that you don't have to add all this to your pre poo you can just keep it simple and use one oil. But if you are extra like me then go for it and all these benefits to your hair.

Olive oil

1/4 cup

Coconut oil

1/4 cup


Honey

2 table spoons


Wenaturals hemp oil

2 covers


Aloe Vera
I use the aloe vera on the roots of my hair before I start the prepoo process..

You can do this and wait for 30mins before wash but to get and absorb all the benefits I do it over night!

Hope this post has been helpful to you, please share if you have other pre poo method!

THREE RULES TO WASH DAY

Hey kinks what's up people?...  So let's get straight into the post!

So if you are a true naturalista you will know that wash day can be some sort of tedious init?...  They are a lot of rituals that most be observed on wash day... So am going to be sharing three beneficiary ones with you..  There are quit a few though (which I will be sharing soon).


USE A COTTON TEE-SHIRT INSTEAD OF A TOWEL: So this is a rule that just came up about some years ago but I ignored it for the longest time, but I started doing it last year and am telling you it helps a lot. It reduces frizz and breakage, it reduces the rate at which your hair will shrink on wash day and it prevents your hair from being stripped of all the goodness you already done to your hair! 

ALWAYS PRE POO BEFORE WASH DAY: I know I know I talk about pre pooing alot but am telling you this is a very important step in the hair routines. Some people like to prepoo 30-60 minutes before actual washing, but I like to do it over night…

Now to my review

PACKAGING The packaging is nothing fancy at all, it comes in a plain wrap and it is delivered in a Pink nylon nothing too fancy..
I am guessing it's a start up coming so I will give them a pass, but however as time goes on I will advice they step up their packaging game!! Cos people are attracted to what they see

PRICE It is very affordable, when I first came across them on instagram, I thought It was going to be a bit pricy so I was ready with my money lol but shocker!  It was affordable one of them goes for 20 Ghana Cedis.. *AFFORDABLE!!*

SEWING (FINISHING)   The sewing (finishing)  of it is neat and seamless and it fits p…
