Haha, just make sure you keep your hair well moisturized but don’t pile on too much products. You should be aii.
Naah, it’s okay x.
Naah, I just have naturally long eyelashes. Genes, I guess.
Nope I’m not Yoruba, I’m Ijaw x
Thank you. Lol, let’s share each other’s wardrobes instead? Mine’s bare.
I wash my hair every two weeks when it’s out.
~Shampoo - 1 part baking soda, 8 parts water.
~Conditioner - 1 part apple cider vinegar, 8 parts water.
You can add more baking soda or water. Depends on how dirty your hair is or how soft you want it to be.
I do use store-bought conditioner but only when I take braids/weave out
~After extensions conditioner - Vo5 with 2tbsp honey (mixed)
I leave this in for about 10-20 minutes.
And then I always deep condition before I install extensions.
~ Deep conditioner - 1egg, 1tbsp honey, 1tbsp mayo, 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil and 1tsp apple cider vinegar.
This stays in for 30 minutes.
When my hair’s braided, I try to clean my scalp weekly (and fail) with a bit of cotton wool and methylated spirit. Then I spray a mixture of water and olive oil on.
I use unrefined shea butter regularly as well to lock in moisture when my hair’s out. Oh and I twist it before I go to bed to prevent tangling. I don’t use combs, only when my hair is wet (ie with conditioner on it). I use my fingers instead to remove knots.
One thing I’ve learnt from hair blogs though is that another person’s hair routine may not be the best for you. Experiment a bit till you find out what suits your hair best. I do advise that you cut out shampoo completely or look for “SULFUR-FREE” shampoo.
Good luck with going completely natural! On some days I really need the luck. I’m currently mid-way through twisting my hair and I’ve almost given up. Tempted to get a relaxer but I’ll pass.
If you wanna know anything else, feel free to ask.
Yeah I guess you could call them creepers. More like winklepickers though.
You’re welcome. x
Thank you, dear.
