Homemade Remedies 


Below are a few Natural Remedies that I like to use.


Moisturizing Leave in conditioner:

What You Need:

  • Aloe Vera juice (1 cup)
  • Honey (2 tablespoon ) I skip this item in the winter
  • Castor oil (1 tablespoon)
  • Virgin Coconut oil (2 tablespoon)
  • Tea Tree Oil (4 drops)


Benefits: leaves hair moisturized and shiny. The aloe vera juice is very moisturizing. Honey is a natural humectant so it draws moisture from the air. Hence why I do not use honey in my leave-in during the dry weather.


Mix in a Spray bottle and enjoy!






DIY Deep conditioner or pre-poo (on dry hair):

What You Need:

  • Honey (2 teaspoon)
  • Virgin Olive oil / Ojon (1 teaspoon)
  • Tea Tree Oil  (3 drops)
  • Conditioner for slip (2 teaspoon)


Note: Deep conditioning with oils is better on dry hair. Remember from science class, oils sit on top of water. So using oils on wet hair won't do much deep penetration.


Massage the goodness into hair and scalp. Put cap on for 25 to 30 mins.









Eczema Hair&Body Treatment (and moisture sealant):

What You Need:

  • Aloe Vera gel
  • Virgin Coconut oil
  • Virgin Shea butter


Benefits: Aloe vera is very moisturizing and it soothes eczema breakouts as well as keep the skin moist. It does the same for hair. It moisturizes, smooth the cuticles which help to minimize frizz and keep the hair soft. Coconut oil penetrates and conditions the hair and skin while the shea butter seal everything in.


Natural Face mask

Natural Face Mask - using Bentonite Clay

What You Need:

  • 100% Bentonite Clay (I used Aztec Brand)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Honey


Benefit: Deep Cleans the pores of the skin and clears skin impurites. If you have eczema or any other skin condition, acne or just need to pamper the skin - then you should try this.

Words of Encouragement

Hey Loves!

A few days ago I was very down on myself and needed some encouragement. My boyfriend sent me the following words to uplift my spirits and it did.  I feel like it will help some one too so please read below.

Me: God can I ask you a question?
God: Sure
Me: Promise u won't get mad

God: I promise
Me: Why did u let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,
God:Huummmm...
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....
God: All right
Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let you…

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
