Wagwaaann Nappyboo! Welcome back to the blog!

Yass Yasss Yas, many great things are happening! How have things been on your end? How are you thriving so far in 2018? Isn’t lit?! Its been crazy lit on my end and I’m still swooinng from all the choices, moments and experiences life continues to offer me. And for every single one, good and bad I am grateful! My nappy-trip to India was all sorts of crazy!

It’s definitely feels super amazing to back to fast and working wifi, clean streets, and space! oh sweet space. Have you been to India? If you have you can probably catch my feels, haha! India was crrrraaaaazzzyyy I tell you. My #3odaysinIndia Vlog series is releasing from the 1st of July on NappyeseTV so turn on notifications for my Youtube and Instagram posts!

WHY I THINK I’M A NATURAL HAIR NAZI

This post is dedication to my #6monthprotectivestylechallenge. It ended last month! 6 whole months of wearing my afro in Braids, Headwraps, Wigs and Low manipulative hair style. I loved all my hairstyles! They were simple and inexpensive. I think the most expensive ones were my long silver box braids.

 

RESULTS: 6 MONTH PROTECTIVE STYLE CHALLENGE

 

Here are the results;

 

6 MONTH PROTECTIVE STYLE CHALLENGE RESULTS

 

Before:

LENGTH CHECK 4C HAR

Length: 7 & 1/2 inches

 

After:

4C HAIR LENGTH CHECK 6 MONTHS PROTECTIVE STYLE CHALLENGE

LENGTH CHECK

Length: 9 & 1/2 inches

 

That’s about right. Hair grows on n average of 4-6 inches per year. In half that time (6months) I got my allotted 2&1/2 inches.

My 6 months protective style challenge

#6monthprotectivestylechallenge: 3 MONTHS UPDATE

Ya! so I definitely think I’m a natural hair Nazi. Watch my funny video below to see how I mean, its proof! haha I learnt a lot about myself making this video!

I also love protective styling, lazy natural for Life. I could protective style 12 months in a year even! Because I know it is the surest and easiet way to preserve nappy hair length and health.

I didn’t miss my Mushu one bit (lol..ok lies, but you get the gist) and the timing was perfect for India. I only shampooed and conditioned once in the whole time I was there.

Will you join me on the next protective style challenge?? Have you gone a protective style challenge before? If so, what were your results?

 

 

 

 

BLACK HAIR INFORMATION: ALL ABOUT BIOTIN!

By Posted on 0 1 m read 1.9K views
 

What Is Biotin

Does it really make your hair grow?

How much is too much?

Which brand is the best?

I heard that it causes acne. Is that really true?

What if I’m not a fan of pills? How else can I get my Biotin intake?

Answers to all your questions are here

BLUEBONNETS BIOTIN FROM WHOLEFOODS

BIOTIN SUPPLEMENTS

I tried to continue with Hairfinty Supplements. You’ll remember them from January Essentials/Capricorn Season. Alas, it was not in my cards to do so. I picked up this baby from wholefoods last week. It’s pure Biotin. I remember when pure biotin was the rave in  town, so I’m a bit late to the party. But you’ll be hearing from me soon 🙂

Would you like a Product review of my experience with HAIRFINITY HAIR SUPPLEMENTS? I know there are already loads on Youtube. Should I bother?

HOW TO CARE FOR 4CHAIR AFTER 3 MONTH PROTECTIVE STYLING

By Posted on 2 m read 1.2K views

The Universe delivered my Mushu and me from regression. For real for real! All my 3 months of protective styling could’ve gone down the drain with the rest of my 3 years worth of growth! Scarry?? You bet!

More of that gist in  #6monthsprotectivestyle: 3MONTHS UPDATE

And this is how I delivered Mushu out of these box braids after 3month of protective styling

 

HOW TO DETANGLE 4C HAIR AFTER LONG PROTECTIVE STYLING

My ends were nicely finessing, but my roots were like bruh. Because new growth pushes the root and braids leaving your hair exposed. Dust, and Dirt, conditioner, oil.., lol you name it, all of this has coagulated to leave a nice chunk on tangle between your new growth and where your braid started. Do not be alarmed.

TOOLS FOR THE JOB:

PATIENCE

NEEDLE WITH THREAD

SPRAY BOTTLE DETANGLER BOX

ESSENTIAL OIL MIX

TEAZER/DETANGLER BRUSH (can also finger detangle)

 

METHOD:

In the old days I wash boujee. Flash back to December Essentials: Natural Hair Things I am loving

Where I did the whole shabang after taking down my faux locs. But this time products used:

LAVENDER OIL

SHEA MOISTURE DETANGLER

TALIAH WAAJID SHEA COCO DETOX SHAMPOO

SHEA MOISTURE STRENGTHEN AND GROW TREATMENT MASK

APHOGEE TWO STEP PROTEIN TREATMENT

These days I still do the same things without the fancy coffee rinsing. And I probably also should have ACV rinsed, but eh, Lazy Natural problems neh. At least I used the detox shampoo

 

After my scalp massage, (READ 5 REASONS TO SCALP MASSAGE), I wet air and Depp-conditioned to loosen the knots. The next morning when my hair was softer and moisturized, I proceeded to take each fairy knot with the needle.

Check out this video showing how I detangle using a needle.

HOW TO DETANGLE 4C HAIR FROM EXTREME SHRINKAGE

 

I took about 3 detangling sessions to finally get all the shed hair out cos ain’t nobody gat time. If you can’t be patient enough to tangle each knot with each conscious breath please put it away and come back to it. My boo, there is a reason why headwraps exist other than to display beauty 😉 Just beware of your plastic cap slipping through you

I completed my wash and deep condition, and proceeded with a simple protein treatment. Mushu is back to normal.

AUGUST ESSENTIALS: Natural Hair Things I am loving

By Posted on 0 3 m read 2.5K views

Watagwan Nappy People. Welcome back to the Blog!

A Happy Women’s day to ALL the amazing Women of the World

Here are the Natural Hair Things my Mushu and I are loving this month of August;

 

 

TALIAH WAAJID SHEA-COCO CONDITIONING CO-WASH

 

TALIAH WAAJID ENHANCING HERBAL CONDITIONER

 

TALIAH WAAJID DETANGLER

 

TALIAH WAAJID CURLY CURL CREAM

 

HAIRFINITY HEALTHY HAIR VITAMINS

 

RADHA BEAUTY 16 SET ESSENTIAL OILS

 

Q-REDEW HAND HELD STEAMER

 

So these are the babies I’ve found myself loving this month of August. They are currently aiding my Hair&Skin Regime.

I have product reviews (+giveaways 🙂 on all the Taliah Waajid Natural Hair products listed above on NAPPYESE TV. To share with you how well they have worked, how I use them and what I do and do not like about them. Plus an unboxing video of my Radha Beauty 16 Essential Oil set to introduce you to the 16 different types of potent Essential Oils. I honestly don’t know how I used to live without Essential Oils. I about to gift multiple sets of these to all the people I care about. Yeah.. Y’all can call me the Oil lady 🙂

 

Essential Oils

Two heavy weight Champs I’ve also  very recently introduced in my hair regimen is;

APHOGEE KERATION 2 MINUTE RECONSTRUCTOR and BALANCING MOISTURIZER

-You may have spotted them on my insta-stories. This stuff works! My Mushu had been feeling some typa way. I noticed I was having more of the smaller tiny circles (broken hair) in the sink when I took down my twist protective style, instead of the longer strands with the white bulbs(shed hair). I had been moisturizing as per usual so I knew Mushu was crying out for a more intense protein treatment. At my last wash I scraped my last bit of henna but clearly, It  was not enough because the breaks kept happening and my strands were so soft. Partly due to the humidity of the summer.

I brought in these bad-boys to do the job and my Mushu bounced back to Normal! It was perfect timing because I had a hair shoot the next day. We walked in there feeling BAAWSS! haha. I absolutely cannot wait to share the images with you guys!!!!

 

My hand-held Steamer is a serious staple for me. I use it to refresh my old hairstyles and to make my detangling much easier and faster. Videos showing how I do this is also up on the channel.

And Finally as for my Hairfinty Hair Vitamins. Remember when I was loving them as my January Essentials? I got gifted 6 bottles of them as my birthday gift.

I’ve been taking them to fortify my hair from the inside. I am nearly on my last bottle.. At 60 capsules per bottles and twice a day directions, they should be finished by now. But I’ve been slacking 🙁 With so much going on and trying to settle in and pace with New York City, popping taking these supplements haven’t been at the top of my list. I haven’t been taking them consistently and I am curious to know if this will affect my results.
