    The Truth:

    Shampoo - I've used this shampoo on numerous occasions i.e. after a prepoo and without one. I find that if I prepoo before hand, my hair retains more moisture as opposed to going straight into the shampoo'ing stage. This is the only way I will use it (after a prepoo). It is a little stripping due to the SLS. However, what I love most is the SCENT. It's a wonderful exotic tropical scent (smells like a Pina Colada drink). I'm not crazy over this shampoo, so I'm not sure if I will continue to use it.

    Conditioner - Awesome conditioner, leave-in and deep conditioner. I must admit that it's not the greatest at detangling my hair when I'm 8 wks + post relaxer. I'm quite disappointed, but I figured since it doesn't have any silicone in the ingredients. At the same time, my NG is extremely coarse so anyone who has a hair type of 3b,c or 4a should have a better time at detangling their hair. This conditioner increases the moisture levels in my hair. Every time I use it I'm amazed at how moist, soft and thick my hair becomes.

    Overall, I'm quite pleased with the duo, however, I think I might just stick with the conditioner- still undecided about the shampoo. I also noticed that these products have the same essential ingredient "Hydrolyzed Quinoa Protein" as the Aveda Damage Remedy Line. This would be a great alternative, but for less! =]

    Hair Therapy Wrap

    Promises: Are you looking to breathe life back into your dry, damaged, over processed hair?

    Then look no further than the Hair Therapy Wrap. Using special gel packs, the Hair Therapy Wrap combined with your favorite deep conditioner will enhance its restorative healing properties. Studies show that the thermal properties of the Hair Therapy Wrap aide in deeper product penetration into the hair shaft. With consistent use your hair will feel & look stronger and healthier. The Hair Therapy Wrap does not require any electricity to heat, just microwave the assembled wrap, place securely on your head and enjoy continuous warm heat for up to 30 minutes. Works well with deep treatments, hot oils or reconstructors. One size fits most.

    Directions: The Hair Therapy Wrap is a reusable, heated hair wrap. Place a gel pack in each pocket of the Hair Therapy Wrap. There are 2 rounded side gel packs and 1 middle gel pack.
    Make sure that gel packs lay flat in each compartment. Heat to desired temperature in a microwave. See heating instructions.
    1. Place disposable inner plastic cap on head.
    2. Fit Hair Therapy Wrap over plastic cap with tail part towards back.
    3. Then at the base of the neck, simply twist the fabric firmly for a snug, drip-proof fit.
    4. Use the hook and loop strip to secure tail on the top of the wrap.
    Instruction Images

    Place assembled Hair Therapy Wrap in a domestic microwave oven. Heat for around 80 seconds depending on desired heat. Test the heat at 10 second intervals to find out the desired heating time for your microwave. Do not touch the gel packs directly.

    Stove Top Heating:
    1. Bring 3 qts of water to a rolling boil.
    2. Remove gel packs from Heat wrap and immerse only gel packs in heated water with kitchen tongs for no more than 5 minutes.
    Do not put the heat wrap in the boiling water.
    3. Remove gel packs from boiled water with kitchen tongs.

    Allow hot water to drain, let cool for 1 minute. If too hot, you may use cotton gloves to handle gel packs

    Ingredients: The toweling cover is 100% cotton and machine washable with gel packs.

    The Truth: I got the Hair Therapy Wrap from HoneyFig earlier this week. I pushed back my relaxer just so that I can see how it works on hair that is 10 weeks post relaxer filled with coarse new growth. I followed the directions completely and I used the HTW for my light protein treatment and for my moisture deep treatment afterward. I'm shocked to say that the HTW remained warm for up to 30 mins plus. It gets really hot right out the microwave and then gradually cools off around 25-30mins (no lie). I felt so free walking around the house with it on my head. My hooded dryer holds me hostage with every deep condition, so this was a nice change!

    After applying my leave-in conditioner, my hair felt extremely soft and supple, maybe a little too much. I couldn't keep my hands out of my hair!!! Honestly!!! My hair felt strong, super soft, fluffy and smooth once it was completely air dried. Don't get me wrong, my hair normally feels this way after a deep condition with my hooded dryer, but this took it to another LEVEL, remember I am 10 WEEKS POST relaxer. Overall, my hair was left with more moisture than it usual has at the end of my wash day. I am pleased.

    What I like most is that it's very simple to use (young girls can use this), machine washable, and it's convenient. I can't wait to use this for future hot oil treatments :-]

    Let's Chat: Is Your Hair Changing People's Initial Perceptions?

    Just the other day, I was at my Aunt's House dropping off my mother. I was wearing my hair down with a simple headband. My Aunt then stops me to ask
    Aunty: "Is that all yours?"
    Me: "You mean my hair?"
    Aunty: "Yes!"
    Me: "Of course, this is all me!..LOL"
    Aunty: "Oh from when you were little, I never expected your hair to be so long..WOW...blah blah blah" *I kinda tuned out after a while*
    My mother told me on numerous occasions that my Aunt never had high hopes for my hair because it was always dry, coarse, rough and short as a child. She always thought my sister would have longer hair since it was much softer & "cooperative", similar to my mother's hair.

    So, my question to you is..

    Have you changed other people's minds about your hair thus far into your hair journey?
    Have you proved the hair haters wrong?

    Let me know...I know I did with my aunt and it feels GOOD..LOL.

    Plus..I'm not done yet =]

    Hollywood Beauty Olive Oil Creme Hairdress For Dry Hair

    Promises: No Petroleum Jelly that can weigh down hair and clog follicles. This light, non-greasy formula enriched with NATURAL OILS and VITAMINS A, B, C, & E will add moisture to your hair leaving it soft and manageable. OLIVE OIL has long been used as a skin softener which you will notice on your fingertips and cuticles after each use. With regular use you should obtain the same results on your scalp.

    Directions: Apply to fingertips and gently massage throughout hair and scalp.

    Ingredients: Water , Isopropyl Myistate , Soybean Oil , Olive Oil , Stearic Acid , Stearyl Alcohol , Glyceryl Stearate , Vitamin E , Matricaria Extract (Chamomile) , Calendula Extract , Vitamin B , Macadamia Nut Oil , Vitamin A , Coconut Oil , Rosemary Extract , Sage Extract , Vitamin C , Great Burdock Extract , Triethanolamine , Methyl Paraben , Propyl Paraben , Imidazolidinyl Urea , Fragrance , FD&C Yellow No. 5 , FD&C Blue No. 1

    The Truth: I picked this up from my mother's room since it was just laying around, so I take it that she didn't really like it. Anyway, I tried it out on my hair (which has been straighter than normal since I did a roller set) for a few days now and I must say it's pretty good. It does not weigh my hair down (dipped 2 fingers in the jar only using a dime size amount per section) and it leaves my hair soft, provides a healthy glow/shine, feels incredibly smooth to the touch and moist. THIS IS A SHOCK to me since oil based products (yes water is the 1st ingredient, but it's full of oils) don't necessarily agree with me....but this did!

    It's light green in color, has a creamy consistency but doesn't smell that great :-| I'm going to try it on my air dried hair and see if I like it too. Overall, so far so good! This could be a staple moisturizer for straight styles =]

    Tip #1 : Use a light weight oil to seal in moisture i.e. Coconut Oil (what I used), Grapeseed oil etc.

    Tip #2 : If you're suffering from dry ends, apply a small amount all over, paying close attention to your ends, then baggy for 2-3 hrs. You'll have soft & hydrated ends.

    Bubble Hair

    Did You Know That...

    Processes like blow drying reduce the moisture content below its normal level and can be harmful to the health of one's hair. Hair dryers and other heated appliances first soften the keratin of the hair.

    If the heat appliances are too hot, they can actually cause the water in the hair to boil, and tiny bubbles/spaces of steam then form inside the softened hair shaft. Eventually, the steam will create numerous tiny bubbles near the ends of your hair. The hair is thereby weakened, and may break altogether.

    The result is the infamous "bubble hair" i.e. hair that is hollowed out, highly damaged, and prone to breakage.

    Tip #1 When drying hair always use a medium heat, not high heat.
    Tip #2 Don't blow dry on wet hair, air dry your hair first, then blow dry.

    Hair Question: Is Lanolin Good For The Hair?


    "I am curious about the lanolin oil in the hollywood beauty castor oil. I've been reading that lanolin is a bad ingredient to have in any of your hair care products, so what about the hollywood beauty castor oil with mink oil? Is that ok to use ?"


    Lanolin is a very greasy material produced by the sebaceous glands of sheep. Lanolin is a mixture of fatty acids, wax esters, and a complex mixture of other organic compounds. In its natural state, lanolin contains about 25-30% water by weight. When applied to skin or hair, it is very effective at penetrating the surface and enhancing moisture retention. Lanolin is also beneficial because it continues to absorb moisture from the air, and can thus act as a humectant for the skin or hair.

    Lanolin is sometimes considered to be too thick and greasy to be used liberally on curly hair, as it can really weigh down the curls and create frizz, but this is really dependent upon the degree of curl. A person with extremely curly hair would find it very beneficial to their hair. Its unique and complex chemical composition should make it very easily removed from the hair with a gentle shampoo or conditioner wash.

    In summary, lanolin is an excellent conditioning agent for hair, but consideration of hair type should be used when selecting products for hair. People with extremely curly hair (such as those with 3C, and the 4’s) can most likely use lanolin-containing products in their regimen and enjoy soft, smooth hair without losing curl or gaining frizz. Those with wavy or slightly curly hair (such as 2A, 2B, 3A, and 3B type) may find products containing lanolin to be too heavy.



    Hair Question: Castor Oil Vs. Jamaican Black Castor Oil

    "Do you like the regular castor oil? Did you notice a difference between the regular castor oil and jamaican black castor oil on your scalp..which one is better?"

    I used the regular Home Health Castor Oil on my scalp for approximately a week before re-purchasing my beloved Jamaican Black Castor Oil (when I ran out). So, within that week, I did about 3 applications and I must say that I didn't like it much. Personally, I find that the regular Castor Oil is just too thick. It never really absorbed into my scalp the way JBCO does, so it left a weird coating on my strands. My roots were drier than normal, long story short...I just gave it the boot!

    When I use JBCO, my roots/new growth stays soft, moist and shiny!! It acts like a humectant drawing in moisture. I definitely feel the difference between the two. JBCO is much thinner/lighter in consistency and it absorbs into the hair much better.

    If I had to pick between the two, it would be Jamaican Black Castor Oil all the WAY! PLUS...It's raw and unrefined, meaning that it went through less processing, contains more nutrients (more potent), and it's not deodorized so it has a strong/rich color & scent.

    My Second Braid Out ..Thanks Bronzeg

    This past weekend I rocked my 2nd braid-out!!

    Hairlista Diva, Bronzeg, has the best fierce looking braid-outs I know. So, I decided to try her methods & it turned out better than I expected and my hair stayed moist ALL DAY LONG. That made me super happy :-)

    I used the exact same products she used in her video (HE LTR leave-in, EVOO), except I used Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship conditioner as a co-wash, and I used perm rods on my ends instead of satin rollers (haven't seen these in Toronto yet).

    If you haven't seen her tutorials, check them out...
