Hair update :-)

Hi guys,
    If you remember, I did the Inversion method in October 2013 with arguable results and I said I would repeat the process in December. I never got around to doing it so I figured I would start in January 2014 and track my progress monthly to see if I can achieve my goal of gaining 6 inches by December. To get my hair ready for inversion I did a length check and here are the results:


Before, just after and 3 months post inversion


Check out the distance from my ear to my fingertip


Some growth right?

I did not do a anything special. I washed once in 2 weeks, finger detangled solely, conditioned, deep conditioned then protective styled with African  threading underneath my wigs. So without depending on Inversion or other growth aids I gained a little more than an inch in 3 months. I dont know if I should be happy or indifferent but I am kinda leaning towards happy. Growth is growth and some growth is better than no growth. I'm kicking off the 2014 inversion trial tonight and i hope to give you an update in 7 days. Wish me some growth ;-)

Hi guys,                                                             It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

This time its the ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER. Do not let the name fool you, it's actually a deep conditioner and not a wash out conditioner. Here's my honest review:

CHEAP TRICKS // HEAT BASED DEEP CONDITIONING WITHOUT A STEAMER/DRYER

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
