Summer Braids!

Hey Guys!

I hope you all had a restful weekend because I sure as hell did!

Spring has officially sprung here in the DMV.. I think anyway. Though its supposedly “spring” here in the DMV (those that don’t know that’s the tri-state area; DC Maryland Virginia) & I put spring in quotes because if you’re from here you know for a fact our spring is just ummmm how do I put this? Pre-spring hahah! Only because the weather is so unstable, we can still get snow till June sef ( I‘m not kidding I think it snowed like ending of May early June some 3/4 years ago). Yeah, that’s our life here, but at least there’s an extra hour of daylight now that we’ve sprung forward; adding an hour that shouldn’t have been taken away in the first place but I digress..

Anywho, I found some super cute natural hair styles that I will be trying this summer, so I thought I’d share. 

Super cute Bantu Knots:

Quick & Easy DIY Deep Conditioner

Hey Guys!

I’ve been making my own dc (Deep Conditioner) for a while now & it’s worked wonders for my hair. Even when I don’t do a great job oiling my hair/scalp on the regular, that dc comes in for the save! Chillllleeeee lemme tell ya, my hair appreciates the hell outta of it! 

The mixture is real easy to make & you only need few simple items you can find at the local market (I purposely said market to sound organic & healthy hahahah

1 ripe banana, 1 avocado, 2 egg yolk, 4 tbsp honey, 4 tblspn Evoo, Any conditioner of your choice; mine was Tresemme.

Banana – Banana is rich in potassium, natural oils, carbohydrates and vitamins which help insoftening the hair and protects the hair’s natural elasticity preventing split ends and breakage. Banana creates manageability, shine, growth and controls dandruff

Honey – The humectant properties of honey help regulate and retain moisture in hair, plus honey is said to strengthen hair follicles for healthy growth.

EVOO – The abundance of antioxidants in extra virgin olive oil leaves the scalp healthier and may reduce the damage done by hair care products. locking in moisture and preventing dryness of the scalp, it can make your hair soft, smooth and shiny.

Egg yolks – The fatty acids present in the yolk helps in improving the skin on the scalp, thus fighting dandruff, flaky scalp and psoriasis.
Lecithin: This fatty protein found in the egg yolk helps in reducing frizz and helps in making hair smooth.

Avocado – helps rejuvenate and moisturize the scalp. A rich source of proteins, amino acids and vitamins, avocado helps soothe the scalp and promotes long, strong, healthy hair growth; great for scalp-saving hair mask recipe

Conditioner of my choice – Tresemme (I liked the smell & that was the conditioner I could get my hands on in the house)

All the products in one! (Ignore the mitten but I have been told I bake a mean chocolate chip cookie hahah)

My hair with the above mixture, yall see them coils popppppin!

I put a plastic bag over on my hair & wrapped a scarf & a bonnet for the added heat. I let the dc sit in my hair for about an hour (only because I forgot it was even in my hair, judge me not) you can have it in your hair anywhere from 15 mins to an hour. Some people dc overnight, its really up to you. My hair came out soooo soft, hydrated, shinny & just plain ole purrty!

I rinsed out the dc & put some two strand twists in my hair & went smack to sleep! I was tired yall.

Let me know what you guys think below. Have you tried a similar mixture? What do you use to deep condition?
