Hey kinks what's up y'all?  Happy Thursday! Hope everyone is having an amazing day?

So one of the most popular question I get asked all the time is HOW DO I USE OR APPLY THIS PRODUCT OR THAT PRODUCT?..

Let's go ahead and learn a few things about proper application methods for different products..

OILS: The best place to apply oils is dependant on the work or purpose of the oil.

For growth stimulating oils like Castor Oil, the best place to apply it would be the scalp, because that's where New growth come from and the follicles of the hair are made or broken at the root.

How often should you apply such oils? 

Answer: Every other day 

For Damage control oils, the best place to apply them will be to the ends of the hair to enable it penetrate and do it's work better.

How often should you apply such oils?

Answer: Every day until you see changes in your hair then switch to every other day.

SHAMPOOS: The work of a shampoo is a cleanser, shampoo is generally used to cleanse the hair from product build up whilst repairing damaged hair or maintaining healthy hair.

How do you use shampoo? For you to get maximum and full impact of shampoo,  it is best when applied to the scalp. And then working your way down to the rest of your hair. Your hair doesn't need that much tension or shampoo products when it comes to the process of shampooing so don't waste your product and get it in your scalp.

DEEP CONDITIONERS: One major importance of deep conditioning is to maintain healthy  hair or repair damaged hair so the best way to achieve maximum impact will be to start from the ends of the hair and work your way up to the roots.

CREAMS: Creams are best use as a sealant for all other products added to the hair or as an added revitalizer for your hair so how to properly apply this products will be to generally and generously apply cream products to every part of your hair.

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.
