How Did You Fix Some of Your Hair Challenges?

8 Jun

The biggest challenge for me was figuring out what products worked for my hair. I went from relaxed hair to locs. When I cut them off, I had to learn all over again what works for my hair. It was strange because I’d already been natural for five years. I had to figure out how to find products that worked for me without spending a lot of money and trying everything. I got around it by taking advantage of samples, participating in product swaps, attending hairshows where they do demonstrations, and trying products of other naturals. I also tried to pay attention to which ingredients seemed to work, and then I sought out other products with similiar ingredients.

What was your biggest challenge with natural hair? How did you resolve it?

  2. It can be taken alone or mixed with water or juice
  3. My hair feels great after using it for 30 days
  4. It can also be used on your skin
  5. It’s also great for people who don’t like to take pills

I always tell people that products, drinks, vitamins, etc… won’t magically make your hair grow. However, vitamins are a great addition to a hair regimen. A good regimen and vitamins can promote growth and length retention. I am very happy with the condition of my hair after the thirty days. Also, I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. I expected it to taste awful, and it doesn’t taste bad at all. I mixed it with different beverages and drank it alone. It worked well either way. For those of you who are watching your calories, these vitamins are only 20 calories per serving. Thanks to Nzuri for giving me a chance to try this elixir.

SumKindaWndrful Talks About Growing Natural Hair

22 Oct


This is a video I was compelled to make after being informed about a discussion at the natural hair group I formed at my university. I was unable to attend that day, and the one day I was gone, a young man with locs attended and insisted to the group in attendance that his use of Crisco and Blue Magic hair grease made his hair grow five inches in one month. What was worse was that many of the newly big chopped naturals and transitioners were so convinced that they vowed to go try it, despite protest from other ladies who were running the meeting for that day.
In the video I address common questions regarding growth including vitamins for hair growth, if locs make hair grow quicker and trimming ends to make it grow.
