SHETOWEL - Natural Hair Towel Designed For Coils, Curls and Locs

Have you ever hoped that you could find a natural hair towel that was designed specifically for your natural hair, locs, curls and basically all hair types? Well now there is one. No longer do we need to use a teeshirt, microfiber towel or worse, a bath towel. Designed by a fellow Youtuber name Gifty (her channel name is FENETI) Girl, I put thing to the test so please see my review below. Company Claims: SHETOWEL is a natural hair towel made just for us and gently dries your hair with care.    Avoids breakage, tangling and promotes stronger, healthier and longer hair. Ok, so what do I think about SHETOWEL ? I put it to the test on my recent wash day and let me tell you, this natural hair towel worth every last penny. What I love: Quality material.

My Low Buy Year 2020 Challenge

My Low Buy Year 2020 Challenge | Reduce Spending, Saving More, Shop My Closet I am a raging shopaholic. There, I said it! The question on the table is, ‘do I need everything that I buy’? Do you need everything that you buy? I think the answer to that is probably ‘NO’.  I have made the decision to take on this Low Buy Year 2020 challenge with  the goal of using what I have, falling in love with what I own and rediscovering my closet . The byproduct of this is that I will be saving more money.  Would you like to do this Low Buy Year 2020 challenge with me? Here is how I plan to tackle this. First, let me make something very clear: I am not going to punish myself. I will never commit to a No Buy Year. This is a ‘low’ buy year challenge for me where I am spending smarter and spending less and saving more and finding happiness in the things I own versus buying new ‘stuff’. However there will be some items that I will not be buying such as luxury items and makeup.  Ok no

Scalp Detox For Locs & Natural Hair - Alternative To ACV Soak

Do you have dry itchy scalp? Do you suffer from Scalp Eczema? Do you have buildup in your locs that just wont get out? If you answered 'YES' to any of the above questions, then this post is just for you. For folks with scalp eczema (or seborrheic dermatitis), we are told to use the medicated stuff the dermatologist prescribed and oil our scalp. However, sometimes that is just not enough. For regular dry scalp, they say oil your scalp and you will be fine. And lastly, for build-up in the loc or on your loose natural hair, the recommendation is to do a ACV rinse/soak. I personally have not found ACV soaks to be very effective on my scalp and here - but I will touch on that in just a second. Why Detox on Scalp? Our scalp goes through A LOT! We apply oils and products to our scalps and often times it is not washed thoroughly. On top of that, our scalp secretes sebum (its own oils) and lastly our scalp sweat and that can be quite acidic as well. Again, sometimes our scalp

BEST CLARIFYING SHAMPOO FOR LOCS

I have tried many shampoos in my locs to determine what is the best clarifying shampoo for locs that will give us that deep cleansing action that we need periodically.   First, lets talk about what is a clarifying shampoo and how to effectively use them in your locs. Clarifying shampoos are meant to deep clean your hair/locs - removing all dirt, oils, products and debris. However, clarifying shampoos can be quite harsh on the hair leaving it dry and brittle but clean. Because of the drying effect, I highly recommend following up with an oil rinse or a moisturizing shampoo. If you use conditioner in you locs, then you can go straight to conditioning. Sadly, not all clarifying shampoos are made equal and thus not all effectively clarify the hair/locs. I have tried many different clarifying shampoos that leave my hair dry and feels squeaky clean but I can clearly see that it is still dirty. Even shampoos that I swore by when i was loose natural and even in the first few years of m
