Grow Your Hair Long & Healthy With What?!?! Rice Water?

Hey Guys – Happy New week! (Yes, I’m aware it’s Tuesday, Monday is a trial run for me hahahah)!

Okay so,  I was minding my business, per usual right? Scrolling through my timeline when BAM! This lady’s video hits me in the face. Dr. Debbie Williams –  A hair professional claims that rice water grows your hair faster, thicker & healthier.. say whaaaaaat?! Now being Nigerian, I eat rice like everyday & I was taught to rinse out the rice water.. not put in my hair; so this particular process is very intriguing to me to say the least. It’s quite easy to do actually, you’re literally just soaking rice in water for a long period (hours or even overnight) then you rinse your hair with its water like you would regularlly.

Here’s the vid for more info & instructions:

 

So what do you guys think?  Will you be trying the rice water rinse?

Let me know below xx

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)

Blend everything till you get a smooth paste like so↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓

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?

Its A Curl Thing – Natural Hair Conference (Recap)

Hey Guys.. I know, I know, its been a looooooooooooooong while. I have no excuses, life’s just been super hectic (in a great way)! Trying to organize everything I have going on is um.. challenging! But I’m proving to myself everyday that it can be done, so here I am.

I’ve been attending quite a number of events – networking, conferences, expos, meetups hahahaha

& the most recent event I attended was a natural hair event ‘Its A Curl Thing’ organized and held at McDaniel College; actual organizers were Kylah Chadwick and Khadijah Poston.  It was a really great, very well put together event & it was executed accordingly. I am so proud to say I was apart of this awesome program and to think these young ladies are juniors in college & can still manage to pull something like this off is amazing! When I was in college I could barely remember what room # my classes were (judge me not), talk less of organizing an event of this magnitude.

I was there as a vendor and met such wonderful people, both the McDaniel students & non-students and even the staff. Seriously, everyone in attendance was so  welcoming & passionate about natural hair.

Here is a quick footage below

Some pictures:

DIY – Simple Way To Moisturize Your Hair!

Hey guys!

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a while but umm hmm procrastination is a mutha! But I have finally overcome.

Okay so my hair used to get mighty, I mean super uber duper dry to the point it had flakes & it was just.. bad. I would put only oil on my scalp but then I learned that oil only seals the moisture in your hair & since my hair was already uber dry when I applied it, that meant it was sealing..? You guessed it, dry ass hair! Desperate, I jumped on YouTube to hopefully find a solution & thank God I did. heres the vid I found verrrry helpful with creating the mixture to help me moisturize my hair. 

I mix Coconut oil, Olive oil, Jamaican Castor oil, Tea Tree oil,  Palmer’s Olive Leave-in Conditioner, Palmer’s Hair milk, and most importantly a lot of water in a spray bottle. (Dont pay attention to the meat in the background hahaha I mean I gotta eat).

P1

Also don’t clown my spray bottle hahaha I know people actually go out & buy this one below but I didn’t feel the need to go spend some more money when I have empty bottles of body sprays laying around.

So yes, I used this empty one from Bath & Body Works (which smells so good btw) and still worked for the purpose of this

My Spritsz Bottle.jpg

So I put water up to like a good 60% like this

Then I added the oils & conditioner in no particular order or measurement, I kinda just eyed everything. I was really heavy handed on the tea tree oil though since it has really the anti fungal components in fighting the flakes on my scalp I got due to dry hair. Now I’m not quite certain if I am allergic to coconut oil just yet, so I just added just a bit. And voi·la! Here is the mixture up close & personal!

Here’s another angle.

Its quite easy to make & let me tell ya it has done wonders for my hair! I try to spray my hair every other day or at the very least 2 day interval. My hair feels so much better & hydrated! 

Tell me how you keep your hair moisturized & if maybe you’re gonna give this a try.
