2 PDF Download: Creating a Regimen

As you get to know your hair, you are going to discover the best ways to give your hair what it needs. These “best ways” are what will create your hair care regimen. I think of a haircare regimen as a plan of attack for whatever your hair needs. Your regimen can be as simple or as complex as you want or need it to be. It can be fixed or fluid, consistent or infrequent; It’s really up to you.


Below, I've created a guide for which bases you should cover in your hair regimen as well as what you’ll need in order to do it. Every head of hair is different, so feel free to customize your regimen so it will suit your specific needs! You can read it here on my blog. Or download the PDF here, so you can take it with you wherever you go!

0 PRODUCT REVIEW: NATURE'S ADDICTION


I was recently sent some samples by Nature's Addiction: A wonderful company specializing in all-natural products for the hair and body made with organic and raw ingredients. I am a big fan of the founder of the company, and now, I'm just as big of a fan of her products. I can honestly say that I loved all five of the samples that I was sent, and am thrilled to share my experiences with them to you.

2 FAQ: WHITE SHEA BUTTER OR YELLOW SHEA BUTTER?




"White or yellow? Which color Shea butter is good for your hair, and which is bad for your hair?"

Shea butter can naturally come in varying shades of white and yellow. Both are good for your hair. If you are having a problem with a Shea butter according to its color, then chances are you might have purchased a bad batch of Shea butter (it can happen every now and then), or you might not be getting the real deal from whomever it is that you're buying your Shea butter from. This is only ever a problem if you're buying from a seller who is not reputable.

It's not the color of shea butter that you should really pay attention to, but the smell of it. Unrefined shea butter will have a smoky smell to it. Refined shea butter will not.

Although unrefined Shea butter can come in shades of yellow and white, refined Shea butter will always be white. Bright white.

Refined shea butter can still be used on the hair in the same ways that unrefined shea butter is used, but it won't have the same amount of nutrients in it that unrefined shea butter has. This is more of an issue for your skin than your hair, because your skin is what will benefit from the nutrients. The tradeoff for using refined Shea butter is that you won't smell like shea butter after using it (if the smell of shea butter bothers you), and you can make unrefined Shea butter smell however you want it to smell by adding fragrance to it.

I have used both white and yellow Shea butter on my hair, and both worked well on my hair. I have used refined Shea butter on my hair, and it is a fine sealant and softener. Shea butter comes from a plant, so not every batch will be exactly the same.  As long as you buy from a quality seller, you will get a quality product. At the end of the day, your hair will tell you if a product is working or not.

0 RULE #9: DON'T TAKE THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY

Natural hair care can be tedious at times, and it sure as hell can frustrating, but the tough times should account for much less of your hair journey than the good times. Generally speaking, your hair journey shouldn't stress you out, or make you want to kill someone. To put it simply: Don't take natural hair care too seriously.

Your hair can take over your life if you let it; Don't.

You can become obsessed with doing everything perfectly, according to "the rules;" Don't. There are no rules; only guidelines. Your hair will always have the final say!

You can become obsessed with length, and check your hair every hour/minute/day/week; Don't! You will drive yourself crazy. Hair growth is a slow-moving process. If you must check length. I suggest checking every 2, 4, or 6 months. Hair grows on average 6 inches a year. If you have a slower rate of growth, it will be less than that. Instead of focusing on growth, I suggest that you focus on minimizing/eliminating breakage and split ends (they are often caused by improper handling of the hair). Do that, and you will gain length.  

Relaxation is key on your journey. Don't drive yourself crazy by obsessing over anything. It's not that serious. Your hair is programmed to grow; let it. Give your hair what it needs, then chill. The rest has to be left up to time...

Stay Happy & Stay Nappy
