Product Review: ORS Hair mayonnaise treatment for damaged hair

This product is quite common in hair product aisles and is not that hard to find. I have used it many times before but not on natural hair, only on my relaxed hair. I couldn’t tell at the time whether it was good or not because it doesn’t take much to make straight hair feel…

Newly Natural Series part 3: Choosing and buying products

Take a peek at part 1: Getting Started and part 2: Do’s and Don’ts if you haven’t already. When I went natural I had not done any research so I had no idea what products worked best with natural hair or why certain products were preferred to others.

How to: make your own whipped Shea butter

Shea butter is a widely popular natural product for hair and it was one of the products I endeavored to buy first when I went natural. It has been a staple of mine since and a couple of months ago, I was taught how to make a creamy whipped butter with it. I have written…

Product review: Earthsap pomegranate and soy conditioner

It’s been a while since I did a product review but the wait has not been in vain! Packaging really does a lot for a product! Case in point: I walked past this conditioner for months until my better half noticed it. And even though he bought it and went as far as consulting me…

Hello Apple Cider Vinegar!

I finally woke up to the benefits of Apple cider vinegar!!! It has often been mentioned in hair care blogs and my nappy hair care “mentor” (my buddy Jean for those that know her) had long suggested it when she discovered it. I took my time getting around to it though but I am finally…

Product Review: V05 Miracle Concentrate oil

I spotted this so called miracle oil in Pick N Pay Riverwalk and couldn’t resist because of the following sentence that was written on the bottle: elixir with argan oil. That’s all they needed to say frankly, I’m easily intrigued! The oil comes in a little 50ml bottle with a pipette attached to the bottle…

The Healthy Hair Method

In this previous post, I introduced a few of the products and items sold by Ruth from The Healthy Hair Method (HHM) and I wanted to give a feedback on how they are working for my hair. I have almost finished using the hair growth serum that lasted just over a month which I didn’t…

New stuff!

A couple days ago I posted a picture of a bottle of Jamaican black castor oil (JBCO) on the Soul Canvas Facebook page and I did promise I was going to explain where I got it. Through a friend I was told about someone by the name of Ruth who was selling hair products, make…

Products update and current hair routine/regimen

One of the items in my hair goals post for the new year was adjusting my hair routine to increase my hair’s health and I thought a good place to start would be to take inventory of my current products and current regimen before I decide to change it. I know I have talked about my…

Hair update: 2 years old!

So my hair turned 2 last month and I’m happy to report we are growing! I took out my braids after a month of having them because I began to miss my hurr! I excitedly detangled and shampooed and conditioned over two days. My hair was quite clean given the regular washing every two weeks…

Homemade whipped shea butter

My dear friend whipped up a batch of lavender shea butter and was nice enough to give me a sample. The stuff is wonderful! All the ingredients are natural and aside from the lavender oil, the other ingredients (coconut oil and almond oil) are edible. It is literally an inside out head to toe product!…
