Hair Regimen

Hair Treatment.


Many years ago,As a teenager,i didn't really have issues with my hair ,it was very full ,dark and way past my shoulder length,i didn't do much  to it except the usual relaxing and braiding every now and then , but i realised that i could get more length if  relaxed every three months or more . Well my friends said it was just in my genes and probably i was getting more nutrients/vitamins from my diet that helped with my hair growth. i didn't think so , because later on even though my diet didn't change  i started having hair loss, and severe breakage ,dryness, itchy scalp and i was finding it difficult to get the length to wrap my hair in a bun as i used to, but the colour was still the same ( black) .
 So last year , i then decided to deal with the problem , i resorted to my good ol' organic remedies which i prepared in my kitchen .


This is a protein treatment i use once a week , and then Co wash  with the ORGANIC ROOT STIMULATOR replenishing conditioner.I also wash once a week using Africa's best OLIVE OIL shampoo

Protein mix

2 tbsp of Mayonnaise    ( used in salad dressing)
4 tbsp of Local Shea butter  ( melted)
2 tbsp olive Oil  OR  4 tbsp Almond Oil
2 tbsp coconut Oil
2 eggs ( crack it open and use only the egg whites or albumen)

mix thoroughly and apply to the hair especially at the ends, which is where hair tends to be weaker ,and then wrap it up in Plastic film.

i usually carry this over night and then do a Co-wash with my ORS conditioner the following morning ,i then allow to dry on its own  and then spray a detangling moisturiser like Just for me detangler which is water based and then comb through with a large tooth comb.YOU JUST HAVE TO GET ONE OF THOSE.
   All other types of combs are not gentle to  African or kinky hair

the other detangling moisturiser i have tried recently is the AFRICA'S BEST Organic moisturing detangler, unlike Just for me  its has a creamy texture and helps me to manage my hair on a daily bases when styling it .

The other detangling moisturiser i have tried recently is the AFRICA'S BEST Organics SHEA BUTTER moisturing detangler, unlike Just for me  its has a creamy texture and helps me to manage my hair on a daily bases when styling it .I often wrap my hair in a burn with the ends tucked in.

Now my last full relaxer application was in february,and i can feel the new growth each time my comb passes through, my last trim cut was about a few weeks ago , and here's my current length ( shoulder level).


                                                                 My Shoulder length may 2013

I'm due for relaxing by the end of June ,and i can't wait the to see how much its grown.So far all i do in styling my hair is just wrap in a burn and hide the ends.

then i apply on the stubborn ones with a little Aloe Vera gel to make it smooth

The Aloe Vera  Gel thing was just self improvised because its what i use as a moisturiser after shaving.

I really dont stress my hair a lot or use heat objects like the hair straightener,or dryer, it tends to dry out my hair and often makes it look untidy afterwards                                                                                           .                                                                                           

When i do braid , i always tell the hair dresser to leave out the edges,they the most vulnerable ones, and the        first to go when hair is breaking .                                                                                                            .
