My Natural Hair Journey – 4C Hair Progress So Far

 

Hello My Lovelies,

How are you all doing today, so far so good I hope.

Today will share with you an update on my Hair Progress and what I am doing, as promised will post every 3 months, then next year will do the same but will be better at it, scheduling on time, etc, hahaha, time seems to be flying by so that is good, means we are busy and working.In an effort to keep this post, short and sweet will simplify and let you know what am doing, whats working and what are my goals:

My Hair Regimen – September to December 2017

  1. Maintain my hair hydrated and moisturized with Okra mix, applied to scalp and ends every Tuesday & Saturday, seal with Island Oil.
  2. A day before Wash Day, do an Overnight Hot Oil Treatment,, using my Shea Butter Mixture, applied to scalp and ends extensively. 
  3. Wash hair once every 2 to 3 weeks, refresh twice a week, to go style, large 2 stand twists, easy to maintain and upkeep in the Tropics.

 

My Hair Health – September to December 2017

  1. Eat healthier foods, cutting out flour, rice and dairy, due to my health problems so will replace with vegetables and protein as I go.
  2. Increase my water drinking habits moderately, will replace all sodas and sugary drinks with Water and Warm Teas as this is better.
  3. Drink supplements that will aid in my hair health, such as Biotin, Fish Oil, Cod Liver Oil, 1 Multivitamin as well as Iron, daily basis.

 

My Hair Goals – September to December 2017

  1. Track overall health to see improvement, how am doing and how my tresses are doing, hopefully they will be healthier and bouncier.
  2. No more scraggly ends, hate these, dusting each time my hair is done so this helps to avoid that, might take longer but will track.
  3. Less tangles, knots, easier to detangle plus less hair shedding, this one drives me bonkers although we do lose 100 hairs per day.

Tips for Hair Growth – February 2017 Update on Hair Regimen

Palm Trees are Tall here

Hello My Dears,

Hope you girls are all well.

I do apologize for not being on but was ill for about 6 weeks now, am just getting back into my normal routine.  As had stated, was supposed to be on my Water Drinking Challenge at 2 Bottles a day, because I fell ill, that kinda fell in and out of sync so am back on track and we shall see how this goes for these months. So, because I did so appallingly bad and 2 months gone, will start again and complete 3 Challenges, will post 2 for the months I missed and the 3rd will be posted March 1st 2017. Hope they work well plus the ones have chosen are also my overall health as well as for my tresses, so a win win situation right? Ready, OK, here we go:

1st CHALLENGE

A Glass of Water

H2O – Image from Pinterest

Hair Growth Drink – Water

Ingredients:

Water

My Goal Per Day:

A 16oz Bottle twice per day

Optional to Add:

A Peppermint Drop, 1 TSP of Honey or 1 TBSP of Lemon Juice

Water is the best for our hair due to many nutrients and minerals plus replenishes our energy.

2nd CHALLENGE

Hair Growth Drink – Ginger Tea

Ingredients:

1 TBS of Ginger , 1 TSP of Sugar, Warm Water

My Goal Per Day:

2 Cups a Day

Optional to Add:

1 TSP of Honey 

Ginger Tea not only tastes yummy but because is so strong, can be used many times for full effect.

 

According to Ariane from BlackNaps.ORG

Ginger improves circulation which may in turn promote growth and its antiseptic properties make it an effective scalp soother as well as an all natural dandruff treatment. For the full article and instructions on how to prepare, please go directly to her site: https://blacknaps.org/2016/08/11/ginger-benefits-for-hair/

 

Have started both goals as of today and as we know, the better we eat, better we feel and healthier we remain. If you want to join in with me on the 1st, 2nd or both, then by all means, do come and let me know how your progress goes. Any tips or comments, be sure to leave in comment box. Some nice posts coming up plus the 3rd Challenge coming up next week!!! Don’t give up on your goals and take time to enjoy the journey.

!!!Thank you for Reading  Ladies & do Hope you can join in with me on the Challenges!!!

My Natural Hair Journey – 4 Years Recovery 2016-2020

Hello My Dears

For All My Lovely Naturals and Transitioners 

Hello My Dears,

Long time have not written to you all right? Life has been crazy but promise this year, will be checking out all your posts and commenting and participating much more. For 2016, have sorted things out to have more time to focus on my blog and you dolls. Plus, if there are any topics on natural hair, you will like to see featured, please email, post a comment and and will do just for you.

Tresses are on the path to getting healthier every month, YAY, all thanks to my Mom, who has been helping me all the way, sticking to a very basic regimen which will explain below, eating healthier plus drinking much more water. Implemented Vitamin E (great for hair), Vitamin B12 (great for nerves) plus drinking Unsulphured Molasses 1 TBSP per day, really great for hair and health.

These next years, will stick to my hair regimen, it is working wonders and My Mom will continue to help me for 1 more year. Will be on a Health Recovery Hair Resolution till 2020, will have my 8 year Natural Hair Anniversary Celebration, of course, will do 8 Giveaways: 2 Conditioners, 2 Shampoos, 2 Natural Hair Oils, Hair Butter and Hair Cream, so get ready to participate 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 

 

***** My Simple Basic Hair Regimen *****

  1. Wash hair every 2 weeks with Schwarzkopf Bonawell Hair Repair Shampoo, it’s an excellent product for all hair types.
  2. Rinse with VO5 Conditioner, try to use the ones that specifically say Moisture Rich  on it or something similar.
  3. When combing hair, apply Tresemme Conditioner mixed with oil of choice (Coconut, Mamee, Olive, Avocado or Castor Oil) to hair, then Jamaican Mango & Lime Island Oil to scalp then finally Schwarzkopf Bonawell Hair Repair Cream to ends.
  4. Protective Style to the rescue, the one that works for are 2 Strand Twists, those are my staples and my hair loves them. 

Yes, told you it was simple, hahahaha, will do later posts about my new hair products and how they are working wonders for hair. Mostly every other wash day, instead of cream, will use my Shea Butter Mix. This regimen is what has been working for my tresses.

For those who have had Setbacks on your own personal hair journey, you know the feeling when everything seems to be going wrong and you are done, that is how I felt last year, was ready to chop all my hair off and start again. But thankfully I got awesome family who stepped in and encouraged me to keep going, My Mom, my sister, my girl Gigi, Marsha, Karma, Mya and of course my WordPress Natural Sisters who would not Let It Go, hahahahaha, I thank you all very very very very very much 😀 😀 😀

!!!!!I want to thank all 357 of my followers, that is amazing, thank you all for sticking with me through another year here at WordPress, do love this site, for me, the best blog site ever, cannot wait to see what 2016-2020 will have in store for us. Thank you so much for checking out my posts, your lovely positive comments, your likes, your love for natural hair, you are all are Amazing!!
