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 to allow my hair to adequately soak in all the products. 

  • FINGER DETANGLING: This step is very important but most people feel too lazy to do it, they would rather comb their hair (which is not bad)  but finger detangling reduces hair breakage, headache, and stunted growth.. Because combing of hair actually causes tugging of the hair follicles and continuous combing can result to stunted growth. So try to finger detangle when application of the conditioner have been done. 

EXTRA TIP: Proper wash should be done twice a month (once every two weeks)

Hope this has been helpful. If you have more rules you follow,  please share with me in the comment section down below..

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.


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…
