Benefits Of HONEY FOR Natural HAIR

By On 1:39 PM
Honey



Alot of us add honey to our meals, honey is healthy and provides us with a whole host of medicinal, nutritional, and cosmetic benefits. It's no surprise that this wonder food is sometimes referred to as Liquid Gold.

It’s use throughout history and has been well documented and this multipurpose product is used in most parts and in most cultures of the world. When it comes to natural hair care, honey is a popular ingredient in both manufactured products and DIY recipes.

Below Are Benefits Of Honey For Natural Hair

■Treats Dandruff

Incase you discover that shampoo excessively dry out your hair or that the fragrance of some hair oils are too gross to bear, then you should definitely give honey a try. A study published in the European Journal of Medical Research in 2001 concluded that the application of 9:1 of honey and lukewarm water mixture to affected areas relieved itching and flaking within one week, provided that the mixture was left on for three hours before rinsing. It was also found that 'skin lesions healed within two weeks and patients even showed an improvement in hair loss. The patients did not relapse even after six months of use.'
Honey possesses anti-fungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that keep the scalp free of bacteria and fungus and addresses redness and itching caused by the overgrowth of these microbes.

Naturally Conditions Hair And Scalp

Most naturalistas who are into diy have tried the recipe that uses olive oil and honey as the only two ingredients. This recipe is probably one of the most popular homemade deep conditioner recipes among naturals and is as simple as it gets. Some recipes call for a 1:1 ratio of the ingredients while others use the ratio of 2 parts oil to 1 part honey. It's really a matter of preference and the end result is hair that is softer, shinier and more manageable than before. Including honey to your everyday conditioner and deep conditioner is also a good beneficial practice.

Cleans Hair Follicles
The anti-microbial properties of honey get rid of impurities that can cause pore clogging so that hair growth can proceed unimpeded. Build up is removed from the scalp and so the hair is able to thrive. Even though honey on its own will not add volume to the rate of growth, it can create an environment where the conditions for hair growth is optimal.

Naturally Lightens

When you combine honey and water, small amounts of hydrogen peroxide are created and this leads to the hair lightening over time. Though the source of the peroxide is natural and the process of lightening occurs slowly over time, it is no different from the bleaching process used in synthetic hair dyes so care should be taken to ensure the integrity and health of the hair are maintained and damage is prevented.

Moisturizes Dry Hair

Honey helps to prevent dry scalp and remove buildup, becausd honey is a humectant, it draws moisture from the atmosphere into the strands to combat dryness and keep hair moisturized and manageable. Since it helps to remove buildup from the scalp, it relieves itching and combats dry scalp because buildup is not allowed to create a barrier between the scalp and the moisture and nutrients from products applied.

Increases Shine

Because honey is a heavy, sticky product it smoothen the cuticles of the hair strands. This results in a reduction in frizz and an increase in the natural luster and shine of the hair.
Combine 5mls of honey in 16fl Oz of lukewarm water and apply to hair as a rinse and watch and your strands become smoother and frizz disappears.


Tips
Most honey you see on the shop shelf labeled “Pure honey” are mostly adulterated. if you can’t get organic or unadulterated honey, do not use honey on your hair!!!

Hair Porosity And How To Care For Your Hair

By On 8:40 PM
Hair Porosity
Picture Source- Pinterest


Firstly to determine hair porosity, take a cup of water and place clean, shed hairs inside the water. Wait for 30 seconds and do not touch the cup or hair. If the hair floats, it's low porosity, if it sinks to the middle of the cup, it's medium porosity and if it sinks deep inside it's high porosity.

How To Care For Your Hair Porosity Type

1. High Porosity

High Porosity hair is either a natural characteristic of hair or caused by damage. Because the hair cuticles are highly raised or chipped, high porosity hair absorbs and loses moisture quickly. This can make it difficult to care for hair and keep it moisturized, but there are some tips that can help.

■Close The Cuticle: After washing and conditioning, do a final rinse with an apple cider vinegar mix 1 part apple cider vinegar and 3 parts of water. And before moisturizing and sealing, spray hair with aloe vera juice or gel to help close the cuticle.

■Use Heavier Moisturizers and Sealants: Opt for creamy leave-ins, and seal with heavy oils and butters, like shea butter and castor oil to help prevent moisture loss.

■ Do Protective Syles Using Your Own Hair: Avoid protective styles using extensions to help retain moisture in hair. Extensions, whether with synthetic or real hair, can pull moisture out of hair making it drier and prone to breakage.

■ Wash With Shampoo To Remove Build-up From Hair and Scalp: Hair retains more moisture when it's clean, so limit constant use of cowashes and cleansing conditioners to ensure hair is able to absorb as much moisture as possible.
5. Incorporate regular protein treatments in regimen: Protein treatments help to repair high porosity hair due to damage allow it to retain more moisture.

2. Low Porosity

Low Porosity hair, unlike high porosity hair, has tightly sealed cuticles making it difficult for water to even penetrate the hair. It's also prone to build-up since products cannot penetrate the hair shaft. To effectively care for low-porosity hair, check out the tips below.

■ Limit Protein, Silicones, and Heavy Oils and Butters: Because low-porosity hair is prone to build-up, you'll want to avoid all things protein, silicones, and heavy oils and butters. Make sure you read the label before purchasing a product to ensure that its free of these ingredients, or at least has them farther down the ingredient list.

■ Use Warm Water to Wash Hair: Heat helps to open up the hair cuticle making it possible for moisture to enter the hair shaft. When washing the hair, use warm water to help remove build-up that may be on or in the hair shaft.

Homemade Detangler Spritz For Natural Hair

By On 10:16 AM
Spritz


Hello Natural Hair Lovers, happy reading and I hope you find This Post Interesting, informative and Useful.

Spritz is a combination of items put in a spray bottle, to create a usually light mixture liquid spray. It can then be sprayed [spritzed] over the hair, and used as a leave-in, a detangler, or as part of your pre-poo routine. The main thing about them is that they are a spray treatment - hence the word 'spritz'.

The general recipe for a home-made spritz is a liquid plus an oil, in the bottle. Some people like to add a bit of conditioner [one with good slip, and moisturising properties instead of protein]. But there are dozens of combinations - you need to work out and experiment to find what works for you and your hair, according to its porosity and density (check in the files for how to find this out).


One of my favourite spritz is very simple
You will need
■ 50% aloe vera juice (AVJ)
■ a few drops of essential oils (EOs - rosemary, lavender and peppermint are good ones to start with)
■ 50% sweet almond oil

One thing to note is that I add in the EOs *before* I add the oil. This is because I want the benefits of the EOs to be blended into the liquid when it separates.

Benefits Of The Spritz 

■ It goes on at night to sleep in, to keep my hair nourished over night (I almost never apply a spritz in the day - I like to let them dry in case I want to do something like a twist-out the next day).

■ I use it as a leave in as my hair dries after washing it/before I moisturise... I'm actually doing this right now as I type. The aloe helps to impart moisture and lay down my cuticles.

■ It can be used to help lubricate my hair before I put on a pre-poo treatment and shampoo.

■ It works as a nice detangler, so I use it as the base layer when I am moisturising the hair, before I twist it up (and add other moisturisers).

If you have high porosity hair, then your hair might like aloe-spritz a lot because of it's moisturising properties, and the almond oil keeps everything lubricated without being too heavy. I find this spritz to be so useful, I can't see myself deviating from it for a long time to come

Few Spritz Recipes You Can Try:

Below are few ideas of combinations to try, always mix one part water and one part olive oil.

You Will Need

■ water + olive oil (2:1)

■ AVJ + grape seed oil + almond oil (2:1:1)

■ Conditioner + water + almond oil (1:3:2)

■ AVJ + avocado oil (2:1)

■ water + flaxseed oil + grape seed oil (2:1:1)


All of these can have some essential oils (a few drops) added as well. Remember to shake well before each use!


A Detangling Mix for Softer Hair

■ In a 480 mls spray bottle, fill in 120 mls with moisturizing conditioner [not protein]

■ Then add 60 mls of Jamaican Black Castor Oil

■ Fill in the bottle with water or Aloe vera gel but alow some space at top, you can add few drops of any essential oils of your choice.

■ Shake well to incorporate the mixture and enjoy your spritz.

For Application:

Once you're done and ready to apply it, take a small section of hair, shake the bottle and apply the mix to the section. You can then finger detangle or *gently* comb the hair, and the tangles should melt out.
Don't rinse off the mixture, just put the hair into a twist to keep it stretched, and move on to the next. This makes a great pre-poo treatment, and you can also use it if you're about to redo a style.
It could be used as a leave-in as well. And it's amazing as well if you're taking down braids/twists, it makes the process much easier.

Tips And Tricks

■ If you can get one, use a bottle with a trigger nozzle, or one with any handle like that. They are so much easier to hold, and spray over your whole head.

■ When you make any spritz, make sure you leave a gap at the top. This allows the ingredients to mix better when you shake them.

■ Make your spritzes in small batches. You don't want bacteria to grow on them. Keep them for a week maximum, store in the fridge if you can.

■ Be careful if you ever use coconut oil in any of these. As coconut oil can solidify easily, you might have to warm the bottle in order to spritz. This means it will go off easier, especially if you reheat it multiple times. And it might block the nozzle of your spray bottle if it solidifies up there.

■ Don't add in any powders or butters, these will also clog the nozzle.

■ You might notice that the 'liquid' part of the spritz will go down faster than the oil part; this is normal because the liquid is at the bottom, where the nozzle is. So it's important that you shake and then spritz to get a mix of oil and liquid to go up the tube.

■ Try not to use really thick oils, unless they're in a small quantity like in the detangler above. A spritz is supposed to be quite light. Making half of it with something like castor oil is probably not the way forward - it might not mix will, would sit on the hair, and also will probably clog your spray bottle!

■ The spritz will separate itself - this is normal, just shake it up and get going.

■ Spritzes work best when you keep it simple! You don't need to put every ingredient you own into it in order to get an effective mix.

■ There are absolutely no hard and fast rules on what you put in. These are just ideas, but you can make it your own!

How To Take Care Of Your Natural Hair Tips

By On 9:56 PM


For Naturalisters, it's no news that we have delicate Hair but the Tips are most delicate and are unprotected from  breakage,  because they are the oldest part of the hair.
We can shield our hair by putting it in protective styles, e.g. box-braids, twists, threads, locs, etc. Scarves can also be used to protect our hair, it's not limited to our bad hair days only.

So what Do We Need To Do To Protect Our Natural Hair?

1. MOISTURIZING: Water is a good source moisturizer, but it tends to evaporate if not properly sealed in. A butter-based moisturizer with water (aqua) as the first ingredient on the list will keep your ends stay soft and well moisturized. 

Simply apply the moisturizer on your hands and scrunch it in (best done before styling your hair). In the absence of a store-bought moisturizer, you can use aloe vera gel.

2. SEAL WITH HEAVY BASED OIL: You can also keep your ends protected by sealing with heavy oils e.g. [Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO)]. You can make do with the regular castor oil, it's also thick enough to seal your ends.

This oil keeps your ends clumped together, hence preventing breakage. [Remember, you can easily break a single stick of a broom but it would be difficult to break a whole bunch].

3. TUCK THEM AWAY: You can tuck your ends in Buns, Rolls, Doughnuts, Pin Up, Up-dos or Thread it.

NOTE- Our natural hair, on the average grows half an inch every month. We need to put measures in place to retain that length.

Hair Loss Causes And Remedies

By On 6:46 PM




Hair Loss is One of the issues Ladies suffer from, it is also the common problems that we sought for solution. Because in our world today hair loss is a radical issues suffered mostly within the female folk. Once you walk pass 10 ladies, 6 of them are afflicted with Hair Loss syndrome. However, well I am of the belief that you definitely need to observe the root cause of Hair Loss before you can remedy it.

The norm suspects of Hair Loss is breakage which are caused by too much manipulation on our Hair mostly when it's dry, and yes our Hair end up damaged.

Below in this POST are Five causes of Hair Loss which you might not have given thoughts to.

1. Don't Overstretched Your Hair:- Many Ladies stretches their hair before styling and believe me it's a recipe for Hair Loss. And sure you are using one of the harmful ways to Care for your hair.

Then we have Banding, this type of styling is another option as well, which dependes on the pressure it strains on your hair. When you make tight braiding which overstretch the hair or band your hair tightly it results to weak hair strands and your edges suffer. So always make sure you stretch on damp hair rather on wet hair. When your hair is Wet, it is  susceptible to breakage under pressure. Always stay off from the use of rubber bands or any other hair bands.

2. Don't Style On Drenched Hair:- Our Hair is majorly fragile when it's drenched with water. So styling our hair in it's wet state may result to Hair Loss. If it is required that for your hair to be manipulated when wet then please hold on till your hair is semi-dry.

3. Protein Deficiency:- Our Hair largely consists of protein [keratin] which is derived from foods that contains amino acids that we consume into our body. If our diet is low in protein it can cause weak, thin hair strands, which leads to Hair Loss. Endeavour to reduce Hair Loss by adding nuts, chicken, fish,  beans into your daily feeding, massage your hair with Black Seed Oil, the benefits of this herbal oil in reducing hair loss is oustanding,  it nourishes your hair and promote quality hair growth.

4. Don't Use Harmful Shampoo:- Some shampoos contain Laureath Sulphate which can be harsh on the hair thereby weakening the hair strands and causing Hair Loss. it's ideal to use a non-sulfate shampoo or a natural shampoo.

5. Sun Exposure:- When your Hair is over exposed during summer period, it may lead to your hair being weak, which is a recipe for breakage in the fall/winter months. One of the ways to alleviate Hair Loss is to deep condition your hair regularly with protein based products and also trim your ends for a healthy hair growth.

Natural Hair is easy to maintain, only if you understand your HAIR. So try your best to study your hair and also to know what works for you, because that a product or a regimen is good and gives result to A won't be same for B.
One easy DIY (Do It yourself) to get a thick full shiny hair texture is using beer to thicken your hair.

Using any kind of beer helps to achieve a voluminous thick Hair and adds shine to it. It is used for reparing damaged hair, to regrow hair and stop slipt-ends breakage. Strengthens your hair cuticle, upload shine and amazingly, enhance hair growth. All these benefits are achievable because of the brewer's yeast found inside beers.

2. Keep it open for a few hours to degas (it can be left open in a single day or for five hours and greater). The beer needs to be flat before use.

Tips-: You can do this weekly or monthly

Selfmade Coconut Oil Lip Jelly For Your Family

By On 10:47 PM


The most vital component in making this product at home is coconut oil. Coconut oil has moisturising features which can be advantageous to all of us, it is also great for cracked lips.

whilst you're getting ready to make the lip balm, make sure that you have all the ingredients needed. The most common function making your own beauty product, is that it's miles a 100% organic and natural which makes it safe for use, until you decide incorporating whatever else. All you need are coconut oil and scented essential oils preffered by you, you can pick out Moroccan Argan oil because Argan oil is a nicely scented oil and also recognised in treating dry skin.


INGREDIENTS:

1/2 Cup Coconut Oil

1 Tablespoon Argan oil or any essential oil of your choice.

DIRECTIONS:

Just know that the procedure is pretty easy to carry out, mix all the natural oils right into a pan and heat up at the cooker. Ensure you have a large amount of coconut oil than the argan oil, do not heat on a high temperature because it can burn the oil faster. You simply dont need to cook the oils.

Natural Coconut oil has a specific composition because it thickens quickly  once it's stored or kept in a cold temperature area like inside a fridge, etc. The reason you're melting coconut oil is to ensure the Argan oil mix into the coconut so as to have a quality texture before storing into a container.

Okay! Ensure that you have a great mixture from both oils inside the pot to avoid lumpy oil.

Pour the cold /warm oil into an air tight box or container, If you prefer a solid jelly or balm then the fastest approach is to put the mixture inside the refridgerator. No cause to worry over the oil dissolvong  except the container is left in heated area like in the vehicle or under the Sun.

If you are like me that prefers Selfmade or Homemade BEAUTY products, then it's advised to carry out a wrist test so as to check if it's ideal for your skin before using it daily. Albeit that oils don't have an excessive acidity level, a few folks can react negatively to it.

Lastly making your lip balm is greatly useful and has wonderful benefits for folks who reacts from store sold BEAUTY  cosmetics, and yes it helps to save from shopping. Most factory manufactured cosmetic products have chemicals which is used to preserve them to keep it useful which might be dangerous for our skin.
