How To Not Be a Product Junkie & Commit To A Hair Routine

Being a part of the natural hair community is a wonderful thing. Having support from others whom share struggles, goals, and experiences similar to yours can be really great. However, there are a few habits one may pick up when wanting to perfect hair health or trying to find the perfect product. In the natural hair community, we call that a “product junky”.

signs-youre-a-product-junkie-650x347

 A product junky is someone who shops endlessly, searching for a product to spark some type of magic and create those magnificent, non- frizzy curls.  With so many brands to choose from today, the search can literally never end.

Ladies, it’s not just about the product, it’s your hair routine that really does the job. You can spend hundreds of dollars on products and still lack the results you seek. When you create a hair routine that’s suitable for you, it’s a match made in heaven.

TECHNOLOGI

It is important that you have a relationship with your hair. You want to be able to know what your hair likes and dislikes, then put in the time to bond with it for added growth. With that being said, how do you know what works for your hair?

Know your hair type/pattern

Wavy, curly, extremely curly or kinky – This means the shape of your hair strand. You can determine the type with the help of this photo.

Determine your hair texture

Coarse, medium, or fine – This means how thick the individual hair strand is.

texture

These two things can help you figure out which products to choose. H2O is one of the most important and easiest products to get a hold of. Some people prefer rose water because it is less harsh on the hair, you can test your water pressure levels at home, to determine whether your area produces hard water pressure or not. If not warm water is okay.

Find a cleanser that best suits your needs, if you are worried about harsh chemicals make sure you read the ingredients and lean towards natural cleansers like; black soap, apple cider vinegar and castile soaps.

Side note: for those with locs who want to maintain healthy hair. I suggest you keep things to a minimum, like choosing a cleanser and oil for your scalp as well as using water or Aloe Vera plant juice. You don’t want to put too much product in your locs because it will get trapped into your hair and can cause build up which can lead to mold.

Next, find which essential oil/s work for you. Do you prefer something light and moisturizing like coconut oil? (Which I believe works well for all hair types). Or would you rather thicker oil that helps promote thicker hair? Remember when using a thicker oil such as castor or vitamin e oil, you want to focus primarily on the scalp. A good amount is in between a dime and quarter size, try not to overdo it.

Conditioner is another important part of the hair treatment. This will provide moisture to your hair and also serve as a treatment.

Side note: those with locs, conditioner is not necessary to put into your hair. This again can cause build up leading to mold and can possibly loosen you hair, oil will do the trick.

A tip when conditioning hair is washing 80-85% of the conditioner out and leave the rest in for moisture and to act as a leave in. You save money this way by only having to use one product. However, if that is something you feel uncomfortable with, listen to your intuition instead.

TECHNOLOGI

Finally for those with extremely curly and kinky hair types, you want to think about using a cream to finish sealing in that moisture; wavy and curly patterns are not excluded but using less product is recommended. Personally, I like to make my own little concoctions of Shea butter and essential oils of choice. This option is more convenient because I own the products already and I am aware of exactly what is in it.

Lastly, we come to developing a scheduled routine. I recommend moisturizing your hair 2-3 times a week. Maybe before you go to bed you can oil your scalp then a day or two after you will repeat the same steps.

I hope to have given insight and knowledgeable tips to help aid in your hair care. Consistency is important; when your hair can trust you it will work with you, if you work with it!

Introducing 5 Sensational Foods That Will Grow Your Hair

One of the questions I get asked a lot is “How can I grow my hair?” you would think it was the secret to life the way so many do research to find the answer. Everyone wants healthy hair and will practically do anything to get it. If I wrote an article stating how jumping up and down on one foot helps growth and had it backed by science, there would be some who would try.

Thankfully, I’m not here to tell you that’s the answer. Instead I’m here to provide an old school way to help your hair growth. I’m so surprised at how many people neglect this but hopefully you will take my advice.

Healthy hair starts with a healthy diet

boom.gif

There’s no way around it. You are what you eat! If you’re consistently eating poor and putting anything in your stomach then expect it to release from your skin and your hair. You can’t expect to grow long locks on a diet of juice and McDoubles, you need nutrients to make your hair grow.

TECHNOLOGI

Promoting nutrients in your daily meals will help you evade hair loss and will even make new hair pop out of your head to fill all those previously thin patches for a fuller, more glamorous look. So, without further wait, we give you the following list which describes the different foods that you can eat in order to get your dream Rapunzel hair.

Salmon:

food-dinner-lemon-rice.jpg

This meal is full to the brim with hair growth promoters like vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids aka “the good fat”, that target your scalp. They help keep this surrounding base of your hair healthy and nourished to make excessive hair growth a possibility. After all, strong hair will only sprout from a healthy ground.

Oysters:

If you have never considered trying this delicacy out, you may want to give it a go now! Oysters are rich in a metal called zinc. The deficiency of this metal in your body causes your hair to drop and makes your scalp unhealthy. However, eating only 5 ounces of this seafood can give you enough zinc to boost your hair growth to maximum levels. It also clears up your scalp to provide the healthy environment that your hair needs to stay happy. Your dream of that long flowing braid may actually be realized.

Eggs:

Eggs have long been rumored to benefit your hair and we will tell you the real reason why. Egg yolk is extremely rich in proteins that help strengthen the basic structure of your hair. Furthermore, it also contains omega-3 fatty acid, which is the ‘good’ fat and biotin, the vitamin which makes your hair grow fast. All these combined can increase your hair growth to give you long lengths in a very short time. Remember, it is the yolk that contains the goodies. Eat them to avail a multitude of nutrients that go straight to your hair!

Yellow peppers:

Vitamin C is a great plus for your hair. It is an antioxidant, having properties which help strengthen the hair so that your lank of hair can grow to extreme lengths without the fear of breakage. It also helps to make the hair bases strong so that they resist pulling and don’t come off as easily as before. Oranges contain vitamin C but yellow bell peppers have 5 and a half times the amount in an orange, clearly stating why they are such an excellent option to include in your diet.

Avocado:

fruit-avocado-1562329.jpg

It is no secret that avocados hold the tonic of beauty, so it comes as no surprise that avocados house a bucket load of benefits for your hair. They contain a high content of essential fatty acids, which are great for your hair. They also stimulate the production of fibrous tissue in your hair that helps ground them firmly to your scalp so that it becomes difficult for them to fall off. This enables strong hair, which means your hair can grow longer as they won’t fall off as soon as they lengthen.

Needless to say, your diet plays an essential role in keeping you healthy and beautiful in every way. Your hair also needs you to eat the healthy nutrients instead of the pointless junk that you keep putting in your mouth.

Clearly, for healthier, longer and thicker hair, some dietary modifications are in order. A little addition here and a little change there can make a big difference. Of course, you can’t expect to have a foot length of hair added to your head overnight, but trust us, slowly and surely your hair will certainly grow into the dream locks that you always wanted.
