Hey guys happy Tuesday and welcome to tegskinktyu...
Apologies for NOT telling you about the break I took but it was needed to revamp and make the blog look better.. As you know this blog was a fashion blog and it has been transitioned into a Natural Hair Blog So it needed new interface, Outlook and general polishing...
I now have different segments were we can connect more and better just hit the search button and you will see different options and segment to visit..
As a part of taking blogging more seriously I will keeping a consistent posting schedule, blog post will be going up on TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS AND SATURDAYS so be on the look out for those days..
You can subscribe and follow the blog so you can get instant notification when post goes up in other not to miss anything.
Now that we have that out of the way let's get straight into this post..
From the post title this is going to be TEN must haves a naturalista must have with them and I have divided it into FIVE PRODUCTS AND FIVE INSTRUMENTS
Ties or Hair Clips: We have all experienced those days when we would leave the house with a fleeked hair so but end up looking a huge hot mess by the middle of the day because of different reasons, this is when your hair tie or clip comes in Handy cos all you need to do is pull one out of your bags or your hand and put your hair up in a nice bun.
Toothbrush: Yes I said it, toothbrush this is a very light and convenient instrument to have. You can use it to brush and lay your edges of use to generally brush those 'notice me' hairs that sticks.
Afro Comb and a Wide tooth comb: This is very important, I have seen people with natural hair use other types of comb to comb their hair, it's wrong and doesn't help the growth of your hair it all... So get yourself one of these combs.
Spray Bottle: If you are a natural, you MUST have a spray bottle. For your moisturising mixtures, wash day usage etc.
Bobby Pins and Roller Sets: Most naturals live their lives with twist outs lol and rollers sets and Bobby pins help you get the perfect twist outs and help them last longer too
Gels or Activators: I was one of those naturals that didn't believe that a gel can do anything for my natural hair but that was because I hadn't found any good one. But yes there are great gels out there that can totally help you for either your wash and go's or your twist.
Curling Based Cream: This for me is the root of everything, for your curls to be more defined and beautiful you need a good curling base cream to help with that.
Leave-in Conditioners: This works magic for your hair to help retain moisture and leaving your hair silky smooth and your curls bouncy.
Honey: Always add a drop of honey to your wash day routines and watch to see how totally amazing your hair will eventually turn out. Honey acts as HUMECTANT It prevents the loss of moisture from your scalp. It’s hygroscopic properties (love of water) means that it can attract and hold onto water molecules from the atmosphere.
Oils: What is a natural hair without the benefits of Oils... Oiling your hair is the bases of a great hair care routine.. And my oils of choice are
- Olive oil
- Coconut oil
- Almond oil
- Hemp oil
- Castor oil.
Hope this post have been helpful, make sure to leave me a comment if you have other must haves I didn't list here..
