Quick Tip Monday!!!

The Fall season is in full bloom and Winter is just around the corner. Now is the time to make sure your hair regimen is weatherproof.

Lately, I’ve been hearing from quite a few women that they are neglecting to receive all the benefits that come from deep conditioning.

In other words, they don’t bother to deep condition.

by nature, natural hair is prone to dryness due to the fact that the natural oil in our hair takes longer to travel down the locks of our hair because it’s curly.

So in order for us to ensure that we are receiving an adequate amount of moisture, it’s up to us to put that back into our strands.

One of the best ways to do that is by Deep Conditioning.

Hair that is deep conditioned regularly is likely to be more manageable, softer, less prone to breakage and frizz, and is able to retain length.

My Love for Cleansing Condtioners

Quick Tip Monday!!!

I wrote this blog a couple of month’s back, but now that fall is here, I thought this would be a good way to kick off maintaining your tresses during the drier seasons.

Due to the fact that natural hair tends to be curly, it makes it harder for the oil that is naturally produced to reach from root to tip,

And because of that I prefer to use cleansing conditioners  over the traditional sulfate shampoo.

Sulfates are known to be harsh detergents that robs the hair of it’s natural moisture which makes it harder for you to quench those already dry tresses.

But cleansing conditioners  are wonderful because they allow you to clean your hair without stripping it of all it’s natural oils.

Quick fact: after water tea is the most consumed beverage in the world.

I hear you…no…this is another article on the benefits of green tea.

After some research I thanked my husband for going against the grain and getting something that would soon become a staple in my health, hair and skin regimen.

The Benefits of Shower Filters

Quick Tip Monday!!!

Here’s a blog that I wrote early 2015 that I thought would be of use during season.

The winter weather has officially started up and with that comes the beauty of Gods’ creations. Snow everywhere! Oh how I love this time of year.

But there are a few things that we may not love that loves to rear it’s head every now and then.

The frigid temperatures, the blistering winds, and the increased hard water that we’re experiencing is enough to make anyone feel an excessive amount of dry and itchy skin, as well as dry and lifeless hair.

Speaking of which, it seems like the hard water just sort of snuck up on me one day. Recently I even noticed that the hair conditioners I use to wash and condition my hair were not as effective as they had been.
