Healthy Hair Challenge 

  
Healthy Hair Water Challenge! 
I decided to come up with a Healthy Hair Water Challenge because of how important it is to drink lots of water for the true health of your hair, follicles and scalp. I started taking hair supplements and the Biotin was causing my face to breakout. I did some intense research and found out that if you don’t keep your body properly hydrated not only will you notice breakouts on your body but all that money you spend on supplements goes down the drain because if the body is not hydrated the supplements won’t have a strong or no affect. This challenge is for 30 days and it’s to get your body use to proper hydration that will then turn into a habit of you choose to. Here is the morning ritual from the beginning to the end of your day and rules. 
Items:

1 gallon of water

1 permanent marker

Your hair vision 

Self Love
Instructions:
Remove the sticker from the bottle and wash the sticky part away with soap.
Start at the time your day starts with the hour of when you’re up and about like I show in my gallon. For each day you have to hashtag your journey using the hashtag would#curlfident and share your thoughts, excitement etc. 
You are going to break the hours down in two. So every two hours you drink up to the like and recite what that hours says and you must say it out loud to your self to commit and keep yourself up to the challenge and excited about your hair vision. For each hour this is how it will go using my hours as an example. 

Gallon Breakdown:

8am Great and Blessed Morning Beautiful!! 
10am Healthy Hair, clear skin.
12pm Feed The Hair Follicle 
4pm Say No To Dry, Brittle Hair!
6pm Say Yes to Shinier and Longer Hair! 
8pm Stick to Your Goals! 
10pm Feeling CURLFIDENT!!

Why Pre-poos are a must for healthier hair! 

  

Hola everyone! Ok so I want to talk about the benefits of pre-poos for your hair before shampooing. You should never wash your hair again without pre-pooing because there’s a huge different in hairs appearance, strength and sheen. I will break down as many of the endless benefits short, sweet and simply informative put for you to want to do it too! 


WHAT IS PRE-POO? 

Great question! (Pre-poo a.k.a Pre- shampoo treatment) is when you saturates your hair when dry by applying a moisturizer, oil, hair butter, or a combination of them all and/or other beneficial foods like avocados, banana, yogurt and honey.

BENEFITS OF PRE-POO 

  • MOISTURE 
  • EASY TO DETANGLE
  • MAKES YOUR CONDITIONER LAST 
  • AVOIDS STRIPPING NATURAL OILS FROM SHAMPOOS
  • HELPS ADD MORE SHINE AND STREGNTH TO HAIR

Applying a pre-poo will lubricate your hair which will make removing the knots and tangles easier.

 It reduces breakage while detangling by softening the hair fibre and making it more elastic. 

It helps to soften dirt and debris on hair fibres so that it slides off easier during the washing process. 

Helps reduce cracking and damage to the hair cuticles. When our hair is being washed, it absorbs water and expands/increases in size. 

After washing our hair returns to its normal size however when doing so the outer layer( the cuticle) can crack as our hair dries. 

Helps avoid “squeaky clean” hair that can cause dry, brittle hair and excessive split ends

Applying as a pre-poo can help to reduce how much our hair swells during washing and reduce the risk of the cuticle cracking as our hair dries. 


The picture above is my pre-poo mix of last weeks wash which is a mix of  1/2 teaspoon of each oil warm up in a jar or glass cup on boiled water in a saucepan. Leave on for 15-30 minutes or like I do for an hour or while I clean, watch a movie, read, play with kids or water you want to do while allowing the benefits to soak in your strands. Then rinse off and wash away, then enjoy your CURLFIDENT mane;) 



PRE-POO OPTIONS 

  • Oils- extra virgin Olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, sesame oil, jojoba oil etc. 
  • House hold foods like avocado, yogurt, banana, honey, etc. 
  • store bought hair mask or conditioners 
  • Homemade treatments 


All the oils I mentioned are great for sealing in moisture, adding strength and adding shine much more. 

Yogurt is a great source of protein and helps hair gain strength. 

Honey is an emollient and that helps hair with hair loss by boosting the hair follicle for more growth and the humectant in the honey helps retain moisture in the scalp and though out the hair. 

Avocado has monounsaturated fatty acids, full of vitamins D, A, B6, E high levels of antioxidants , potassium, protein and the Vitamin E in the avocado is well absorbed into our scalp and hair shafts. This not only has a highly moisturizing and protective effect against environmental stressors and damage, it also helps  stimulate new growth and help unclog blocked follicles.


Banana is packed with vitamin A, B6, C, E as well as Zinc , Iron and its rich in potassium that strengthens hair, minimizes breakage by restoring your hairs natural elasticity, and it encourages repair of damaged hair and it adds moisture to your hair as they contain natural oils and about 75% water. 

I’ll post different pre-poos every week stay tuned;) 

Best hair growth oil treatment and follicle stimulator! 

  Magical hair growth oils

Magical hair treatment for hair and scalp health! 

Ok so you guys already know I’m a big fan of all these natural herbs that are absolutely amazing for the hair and have been working wonders for my hair thank GOD! Lol. So, here is the break down of this magical hair treatment. Below are all the ingredients I used to prepare this magical treatment and all the benefits you reap from them! 

Once you add all of these herbs into the saucepan turn on the fire to its lowest heat and stir the herbs for 3 minutes then shut off the stove. Add all oils with proper measurements and turn heat on again to lowest heat and stir herbs and oils together for 3-5 minutes then turn off. 

  

Let the oils mixed with herbs cool down. Once it’s cooled you pour over your favorite curl friendly conditioner or deep conditioner to the consistency you like. Below are conditioners I use you don’t have to mix then you can use only on conditioner or deep conditioner of your choice it doesn’t have to be these. 

 


  
                     ~MAGICAL HERBS~  

~HENNA~ it’s an herb that comes from India. The benefits of this herb are just magical. Henna is a conditioner for the hair that adds shine, volume, natural acid-alkaline balance on your scalp and cleanses it of dirt without stripping away the oil and natural balance unlike chemical-based products. It also promotes hair growth, reduces hair fall, dandruff and other scalp problems. 
~SHIKAKAI~  This herb that grows in India is highly popular for promoting hair growth, preventing dandruff, and strengthening the hair directly from its roots.

And as I mention in a precious post “SHIKAKAI” means “Fruit for the hair” . 


~BRAHMI~ is another Indian herb and used both in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as I mentioned in my previous post too. Brahmi helps with Strengthening the roots of your hair, makes the hair denser, shiny, longer and dark toned, it controls dandruff, and it reduces the amount of hair loss. If you’re experiencing thinning of the hair then you should make this part of your hair treatment regimen. 


~AMLA~ has tannins, vitamin C, and is astringent which is very beneficial to the hair! This herb adds texture, volume, wave, defines your curls, adds shine to your hair, promotes hair growth, and makes your hair thicker and stronger.


~MORINGA~ improves the physical appearance of the hair to a great extent because of its abundance of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which are paramount in the formation of keratin protein. 

Moringa has a high content of vitamin A, thus promoting hair growth and maintenance because deficiency of vitamin A can cause dryness, brittleness and dandruff. Vitamin A plays an important role in reduction of hair loss. 

The Moringa plant also contains zinc which stimulates hair growth by enhancing the immune function. Zinc and silica along with vitamin A prevents drying and clogging of the sebaceous glands. Sebaceous glands are responsible for production of sebum( what keeps your hair shinny and nourished)

Vitamin E contained in moringa is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates blood circulation around the scalp. Proper flow of blood to the scalp helps in the absorption of more nutrients available in the hair follicles.

Hair loss occurs due to the deficiency of vitamin B- especially B6, biotin, inositol and folic acid. Proper blood circulation to the scalp enables hair follicles to grow stronger and healthier. Vitamin C together with vitamin E helps in the improvement of blood circulation in the scalp. 


  

                      ~MAGICAL OILS~   

~COCONUT OIL~This oil gets deep into your hair follicles stimulating new hair growth and making the strands strong preventing breakage and split ends which allows you to retain length. The added bonus is that it makes the hair shiny and super soft. 


~CASTOR OIL~ Castor oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and is high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and Omega 6 and 9 beneficial fatty acids. Its unusually high ricinoleic acid ratio makes it beneficial to skin and hair.

Castor oil can be used on the scalp to help prevent and remedy hair loss and it is effective at this for several reasons. It’s antibacterial and anti fungal properties make it beneficial against follliculitus, dandruff and scalp infections and its ricinoleic acid content helps increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth. 

Ricinoleic acid is also said to help balance scalp pH which can also help replenish the scalp’s natural oils and undo some of the damage of harsh chemical hair products (and even damage from no-poo, due to over alkalinity). The antioxidants in castor oil also support the keratin in hair and help make hair stronger, smoother and less frizzy.



~SESAME OIL~Sesame oil increases the scalp circulation as it has a high penetration ability, which promotes hair growth. Even when your hair has been damaged badly with chemicals, sesame oil can help you regain the hair health due to its high penetrating power. This is why sesame oil for hair growth is so widely popular.

Another benefit of sesame oil is that it is a natural sunscreen. Applying sesame oil on your scalp prevents the damage caused by the ultra violet rays. Sesame oil forms a protective coat around the hair, protecting it against the harmful rays and also saves it from the damaging effects of pollution and preventing dryness. 


~TEA TREE OIL~Tea tree oil has many natural antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, and anti-infection properties which effectively deal with certain hair-related problems.

Tea tree oil removes dead cells, unblocks hair follicles, and boosts the immune system which is then able to fight against infections that lead to hair loss, thus preventing head lice and dandruff.

The oil moisturizes hair and keeps the scalp free from fungal and bacterial infections, preventing dry and itchy scalp and blocked hair follicles.

~PEPPERMINT OIL~First of all, peppermint oil is going to rejuvenate your hair follicles and will help your hair grow directly by increasing the hair follicles’ activities and also shielding them from germs and yeasts, on the long run, this is going to make your hair follicles live longer and also be more productive.

Peppermint oil will bind to your hair roots and also improve your scalp health, by increasing blood flow and healthy blood circulation, this is going to increase your hair growth 

Your scalp’s pH level is extremely important for keeping it moisturized and healthy, if it rises, your scalp is going to become extremely acidic and very dry, that is why peppermint oil is used as a very efficient coolant and dry scalp 


~EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL~Prevent DTH Hormones Production this is hormone called DTH is the culprit in many cases of hair loss, as it causes the hair follicle shaft to narrow and olive oil actually stops this from happening, which means you can hold onto your hair for longer. Extra virgin Olive oil is loaded with antioxidants which keep the skin of your scalp in better shape it fights off fungi and bacteria, dandruff, improve blood circulation which increase blood flow to stimulate follicles to produce thicker strands. 

Keep in mind that olive oil used alone is an excellent way to prevent or slow hair loss. 


~SHEA BUTTER~Unrefined Shea butter is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and has so many health benefits for skin and hair because it contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which contains Vitamin A, E, and others, that protect our bodies from free radicals.  

Whatever is good for skin is good for our scalp.  Unrefined Shea butter has anti-aging benefits because of it’s collagen production, which contributes to youthful skin and it keeps premature wrinkles at bay.  It also restores elasticity in our skin. It soothes dry, itchy and irritated scalp, without clogging our pores, so that our hair can grow without any obstructions or hinderances.

Heaven on curls deep conditioner! 

    

I have been on this natural hair journey for a little over a year now and have discovered amazing hair natural DIY treatments, natural hair products and amazing people with so much knowledge on curls to pass on to other curlies and now I’m doing the same to help you get more Curlfident! 

HENNA: it’s an herb that comes from India and we all know that they have hair to die for! The benefits of this herb are heaven for the hair. Henna is a conditioner for the hair, adds shine, adds volume, it adds natural acid-alkaline balance on your scalp and cleanses it of dirt without altering the natural balance unlike chemical-based products. It also promotes hair growth, reduces hair fall, dandruff and other scalp problems. You can even use it for colouring your hair as it does not have any side effects and gives a deep colour with a reddish tinge.    
 
SHIKAKAI: This is a small shrub like tree which grows in India for promoting hair growth, prevents dandruff, and it strengthens the hair from its roots.

What’s wonderful is that name name “SHIKAKAI” was given to this herb because all these benefits for the hair and the name means ” fruit for the hair” in India.   

 


BRAHMI: This is also an Indian herb and used both in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. This herb helps with Strengthening the roots of your hair, makes the hair denser, long, shiny, and dark toned, it controls dandruff, reduces premature greying, reduces the amount of hair loss and it’s the perfect herb to add to the natural hair regimen of someone who has chronic hair problems.  

AMLA: is a natural plant also known as Emblica Officinalis. The dried, powdered fruit has tannins, vitamin C, and is astringent. The benefits to this herb are oh so AMAZING too! This herb adds texture, volume, wave, define your curls, shine to your hair, promotes hair growth, thicker, stronger hair strands!     

MORINGA: Is also known as the ” The Miracle Tree” because of how valuable it is from its leaves, pods, flowers, fruits and to the very end of its bark! This plant is packed with over minerals, vitamins and over 90 essential nutrients oh and even better over 40 types of antioxidants! Ok so this AMAZING plant is great for moisturizing the scalp when infused with oils to extract it’s nutrients, fights split ends, reduces hair loss mans makes hair strong! 
This plant is for internal and external use and even safe for kids! I will share recipes for every way to use this amazing plant!   

  
 COCONUT OIL: This is the mother of hair oils! This oil stimulates hair growth getting deep into its follicles it promotes the scalp health fighting against such problems as insect bites, lice and dandruff. Coconut oil adds luster, shine and softness to the hair. Coconut oil prevents hair breakage and split ends, allowing hair to retain its length.

  


SHEA BUTTER: Shea butter is rich in vitamins, minerals and other natural properties and this is why I decided to use it in this Mixture. Shea butter’s main components includes linoleic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid along with many others, which are easily and quickly absorbed into our skin and our scalp is skin so of course it is quickly absorbed. It’s also loaded with Vitamin A and E it can repair damaged and split ends as well as it adds moisture to dry, brittle, dull, lifeless hair, it hydrates, softens, conditions and overall beautifies our hair.
Shea butter adds all of these awesome benefits to our hair, without leaving it greasy and heavy. HOWEVER, it’s based on the amount you use. Shea butter restores moisture to hair that has been damaged from chemical hair treatments, blow dryers, straighteners and other hair tools that cause damage to your hair. Most importantly, the only to reap all the benefits of Shea butter you must get the unrefined shea butter not refined.  

  


HAIR CONDITIONER: You can use ANY curl friendly hair conditioner you already use to add this mixture! 
Make sure you warm the herbs on the lowest heat but only after you have all herbs in the pot. Once all the herbs are in the pot stir on the lowest heat and add coconut oil then Shea butter until melts then pour the liquid in a jar followed by the conditioner and seal it and let it settle for a few hours or till the next day which is best to let the ingredients and nutrients extract thoroughly. Finally, apply on the hair and leave on for 3 hours or all day while cleaning or beautifying your body. Rinse off add more conditioner to detangle and your hair will be very CURLFIDENT! Feel free to ask me questions or share your experience! 

THE HEAVEN HAIR MIXTURE! 

  

  

10 top curls commandments to avoid tangles and keep your hair healthy and beautiful.

    Tangled hair is never fun. In fact, it’s painful, and annoying when you can’t get them out! So, I thought I’d share some easy tips to help you avoid annoying tangled hair that works for me and will for you too if you’re PERSISTANT! 


1. THOU SHALT KEEP HAIR MOISTURIZED AND DEEP CONDITIONED.

I can’t stress this enough conditioning your hair is crucial to healthy, defined, frizz-less, less tangles or tangled free hair. You can try different conditioning methods or do all if your hair responds well to all of them. You can condition your hair in the shower apply leave in conditioners and/or deep conditioning. I personally do all of them because my hair is extremely thirsty so I require a lot of conditioning and because my hair requires so much moisture I do the L.O.C method and I feel the should be every curly girl’s routine because it really does lock the moisture in and your hair looks and feels so healthy. Try to deep condition 1 or 2 times a week depending on how dry your hair is and if you have oily hair then apply the deep conditioner on your ends. 

2. THOU SHALT DO THE CHILL RINSE.

 This is the secret to shiny hair so shhhhhhhhh don’t tell no body.. Ready? Ok here it goes! Rinse with COLD water yes cold not warm. Yes it will give you the chills all over, but not only will your hair thank you for it your body will too because it closes your pores and keeps your skin tight and ladies let’s face it that’s heaven talk for us lol. So tolerate the chill in the shower to be able to chill with your shiny locks and tight skin all year round;) Whether it’s summer, spring, fall or winter weather it doesn’t matter the season, always rinse with cold water because cold water closes your hair’s cuticles, so it stays softer and shinier. It’s easier to comb and it’s not as likely to get tangled throughout the day. Also, once a month rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar this restores the Ph balance to your hair and enhances shine. 

3. THOU SHALT DETANGLE FOR LESS TANGLE.

Detangling products are a genie in a bottle for me because not only does it help you slide your fingers and comb through your hair easily but it also helps strengthen and keep your hair super moisturized. You don’t even have to break your bank buying any detangling products if you don’t want to, you can simply mix a 1 1/2 table spoon of your favorite curly hair conditioner in a water bottle with water fill it up and shake it up and you got yourself a detangling spritz! 

4. THOU SHALT COMB INSTEAD OF BRUSHING.

Combing is easier on detangling, and less hair breakage. I honestly don’t even use a comb I comb threw my hair with my fingers and it’s just as efficient as it is to detangle with a comb. 
5. THOU SHALT STOP THE BUNCHING.

Using the right techniques to wash and dry your hair will also help you avoid tangles. You only need to suds the roots of your hair when you shampoo, I use to work the shampoo into the ends as well but when I learned that leads to more tangles I stopped immediately and have less tangles in my hair. 
6. THOU SHALT SAY NO TO ALCOHOL.

Your hair gets more tangled with alcohol based products It’s damaging to your hair anyway, and if you’re prone to tangles, then alcohol based products are even worse. Really focus on sticking with gentle, natural products that promise smoothness to your hair.
7. THOU SHALT PROTECT THY PRECIOUS CURLS WHILE SLEEPING.

If you know what it’s like to wake up looking worse than the frog in the princess story and having tangled, snarled hair, you have my sympathy. The good news is that there are several things you can do to look like a beautiful curly hair princess and avoid a birds nest of bed head in the morning. You can try any one of these curly sleeping beauty methods that is more comfortable for you. 1. Tie your hair up in a bun, braid, or ponytail (pineapple style) before you go to sleep. 2. wrap your hair in a silk scarf. 3. Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase. Anyone of these choices will have you walking up with little or no tangles or dryness because remember as I mentioned above cotton soaks up the moisture in your hair. Above all else, please don’t go to sleep with soaking wet, uncombed hair this is a set up for tangles in your hair! 
8. THOU SHALT GO TOWEL-LESS! 

 Most girls wrap their hair in a towel after their wash but that can actually cause damage. Wrapping up your hair can lead to more tangles when you remove the towel! So Instead, pat your hair with the a cotton t-shirt and just let it air dry or dry your hair with a diffuser not scrunching your hair but letting the diffuser do its job. I will post the right way to diffuse your curls to be curlfident:) 

9. THOU SHALT TRIM THE DEAD.

Reality check some damage is permanent, so face the truth and keep your hair healthy, get your ends trimmed regularly. Trust me It’ll promote hair growth and help keep your hair tangle-free! 

10. THOU SHALT LOVE THY HAIR NO MATTER THE TEXTURE, LENGTH, TYPE OR CURL PATTERN.

10 should have been number one to me! I promote self love like I’m getting paid for it! Well, I am but not in dollars worth instead I’m getting paid in all the self acceptance and of course best of all self love worth and that’s such a rich and wealthy feeling. Curls are simply beautiful, sexy and oh so sassy ( snapping fingers) LOL! I’m always feeling CURLFIDENT no matter my curl pattern, good or bad hair day because I’ve learned how to first self love me, myself and I! 



BEST ADVICE TO PASS ALONG: 


THOU SHALT NOT BECOME A PRODUCT JUNKIE!  This will hurt your bank account and clutter up your space, so say NO! It’s important to invest and nourish your hair with good quality ingredients. Do your research, read reviews, test and buy all natural products that give results. And just simply SAY NO TO CLUTTER!
