Natural Hair Regimen


Hair Regimen

Hey Loves! Lets talk hair.

Having a good hair regimen and "sticking to it" is very important for the health of your hair. Regardless if your hair is natural or chemically treated; every one needs one. It should be noted that everybody's hair is different and so what might work for one person might not work for the other in the same way. With that said, I encourage you to try different techniques and products. This is my regimen (what Shelly does) so it might work for you or not. Ok ok ok let's get to it. lol!

There is 4 parts to my regimen: Prepoo-Cleanse - Condition-Moisturize-Style

Prepoo:


I mix coconut oil, Ojon oil, honey, few drops of tea tree oil in a small bowl or cup and place in microwave for 10 - 15 seconds. Divide hair into 4 sections and apply  mixture to each section root to tip ensuring ever strand is getting some of this goodness. Lol!
Massage for a few minutes and move on to the next section. Put on plastic cap and my steam cap over it for 20mins.

*massaging scalp help with blood circulation and stimulates hair growth.
*sometime I do this the night before wash day so it stays longer in my hair.


Cleansing:

I love a good clean scalp. I shampoo with Shea Moisture Shampoo or I cowash using one of my many conditioners (and I got lots. Lol!). I shampoo each section putting most of the focus on my scalp. The hair will get cleansed as the shampoo runs down the shaft during the rinse process. I ensure that All the product is rinsed out before continuing.


Conditioning:


I only detangle when my hair is thoroughly plastered with conditioner.  I don't have a favorite, it's just what I feel like grabbing or what's closest to me. All my conditioners provides great slip so any one I grab is good.

Again I am working with the same 4 sections. Now I divide each of those sections into 4 smaller sections and detange from the ends up to the root first with my finger, then wide tooth comb then my denman brush to remove shed hairs. I twist each of these sections when I am done. So now I have lots of twist in my hair. I rinse with the twists in; trying to not get them unraveled. I dry with a tee shirt or a microfiber hair turban.

Moisturizing:

After squeezing out as much water as possible from my twists I add my leave-in conditioner. At the moment I am digging Garnier Fructis sleek and shine leave in conditioning cream. it leaves my hair feeling really soft. I unravel a twist, add leave-in, seal with coconut oil or my Shea butter mix and retwist tighter than they were before.

Style:


I either let my twist air dry and rock a twist out or I blow dry using the tension method and do a braid out. My favorite styles are braid out, flat twist outs or cornrows braid outs. I find that these methods leave me with stretched define hair.


I am my no means a pro, but I find that this works well for me. What is your current regimen?

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?

Dossier Perfume Review - Is It Worth It?

Have you heard about Dossier Perfume? They are a perfume brand that creates scents inspired by luxury brands for ONLY $29 - a fraction of the price.  Scents I Tried: Oriental 1 - inspired by YSL Black Opium Floral 3 - inspired by Chanel’s Chanel No. 5 Click on my link to shop: DOSSIER   Use GLAM10 for 10% off. I love y’all, save some coins.  How it works:   The way it works is that they send a small sample in every perfume box, that can be opened and tested before opening the big 50ml bottle. - If you don't want to keep the scents, all you have to do is return them within 30 days from receiving, and you will be charged absolutely nothing! - The returned bottles must be unsealed - that's why they include the sample :) Have you tried Dossier or interested in trying it out?
