Did you know?

Hi there,
    Since I began my healthy hair journey I have learnt a lot about my hair, but with  each passing day and with more blogs and vlogs I visit, I find that there is still a whole lot more to learn. I'll like to share a few of the things I've learnt so far with you.
Did you know:
  •  Water is the best moisturiser for your natural hair?
  • The best hair moisturisers have water as the first (or one of the first five) ingredients?
  • Coconut oil is one of the few oils that can actually penetrate your hair shaft?
  • Coconut oil can protect your hair from loosing protein during handling, combing and washing?

  • Shampoos with sulphates are extremely drying and should be used rarely or not at all?

  • Combing your hair too much can chip away protein from your hair making it prone to breakage?

  • Hair should be combed damp never dry or dripping wet?
  • Your hair needs both protein and moisture in perfect balance to flourish?

  • You must seal in moisture for your hair to stay moisturised longer?

  • Oils must never be applied to dry hair except when finger detangling?
  • It is better to use a wide tooth comb or your fingers to comb your hair rather than a fine tooth comb?

  • Many naturals have stopped using combs and rely on their fingers instead?

  • Humectants like glycerine and honey attract moisture into your hair strands?

  • Cotton bed sheets and pillowcases soak up  moisture from our hair while we sleep?

  • Heat is not really a friend and should either be ditched or used rarely?

  • Everybody's hair actually grows, its retaining the length that is the problem?

  • Your ends are the oldest part of your hair and must be lavished with the most attention?

  • Castor oil can boost hair growth?

  • Jojoba oil is the closest oil to the one our scalp produces (sebum)?

  • Washing hair frequently can cause dryness which will result in breakage?

  • There are 3 types of hair based on how much they can absorb or loose moisture?

  • You can use a conditioner to wash your hair rather than a shampoo?
I could go on and on :-) I am still learning and it feels great to apply this knowledge and see the results on my hair. Last week I learnt something new. It is what I would call a hair growth hairxperiment. I started on the 1st of October and I end today. I'll tell you all about it next.

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,   Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing: Use the right tool  Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.  Avoid these  Much better Comb your hair only when it is damp  Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be.
