HAIR UPDATE- 15 MONTHS POST BC

Hi guys,
    In my last post I told you I was super excited about this update. The reason is simple - my hair grew!!! I love doing length checks because they make me know that my regimen is working and my hair appreciates every kiss and hug I throw its way. Without further ado, here are my 15 months post BC pictures.








If you compare these pictures with the ones from my last update you'll notice that I retained quite a bit of length. I think I had about 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" of growth in most places. Now I can do a low pony tail ;-)

Please ignore the rubber band, I am an Unrepentant sinner :-(
 
For the first time in ages I felt like using a flat iron to straighten my hair so I could really see how long it has grown, but my fear of heat damage held me back. I do not want to lose even 1 single curl so I had to hold myself back. In my next length check I will use a tape measure just to know in terms of inches what my progress is. This month's length check made me really happy because it feels good to see how your efforts are paying off, I almost cannot wait for November ;-)

Thanks for stopping by...
KimB

  4. My daughter is chocolate in complexion but has a very brown hair. i have dark long hair and her brothers hair are also very dark. I'm worried coz she wears natural hair but it is brown as in very light in color. Are there natural remedies to make her hair dark and rich in color.

  5. Hi, a natural remedy you can try is an Indigo hair dye over a Henna hair dye. Olori.com stocks both powders. Click this link to see how it is done : http://www.mehandi.com/hair/indigohair.html
    Note though that this treatment may loosen the curl pattern over time. You will also need to deep condition your hair more. I hope this helps.

  8. Absolutely amazing.
    Mine's 7months now and rather stunted now that I compare it to yours.
    I absolutely have NO regimen but, that's just cos I unconsciously feel it doesn't matter as it's just a TWA- now I'm honestly reconsidering, how do I even start?

    1. You cant go wrong with deep conditioning every other week and moisturing and sealing as your hair needs it. That way when your Big Ass Fro shows up,all your strands will be lush with curls popping everywhere ;-)

  9. I followed ur DIYs,deepconditioning and all,from last year my hair grew to a very big fro, saloons kept turning me down,laziness set-in, I couldn't continue so I cut it down...Now I'm starting afresh wit a TWA,please guide me through...Where do I start?

  10. Hello Ada, sorry to hear about your experience. Its best to begin with the usual moisturising and sealing. You can also deep condition about once or twice a month. Prepping your hair for the salon is also important. You need to condition and detangle properly before you set out. Not everyone can handle a head full of curls so make it easier for hairdressers by doing some homework. All the best

PRODUCT REVIEW : SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

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…
