Help Needed…

Standard

Hello, my name is B and I’m a Product Junkie…It has been 1 hour since my last purchase.

Yes, I just bought more products to add to this collection! Yes, I know I said I was trying to use up existing items in my stash but what can I say…I am an addict!!!!

Anyone else out there trying to kick the need to try product after product?? If so, please share your stash with us 🙂

I Love My Hair – One Year Later

Standard

I will post more later on the products I used for this braid out. I may have found the ultimate moisturizer next to my favorite Komaza Care and Beija Flor styling creams.

What is it???? Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream. I also used Camille Rose Naturals Alma Jai Twisting Butter which is becoming a favorite for giving me the most defined twist/braid outs ever!!! These 2 products work amazing together.

Pi Nappa Kappa

Standard

A fellow Natural sent me some information on a Natural Hair Sorority on Facebook.

An interesting concept, I couldn’t help but check it out and see what it was all about. What can I say, I’ve always wanted to be in a Sorority. What better one than for Natural hair 🙂

My Fall Regimen…

Standard

So I’m not sure my hair care will change much now that the weather is getting cooler.

I do know I want to minimize my regimen and make it more consistent.

Because I’m often trying new products, I fall into the trap of starting and stopping a new product.

The Plan:

  1. I’m going to start by going through all the products I’m not using because they didn’t give me the desired result
  2. I’m going to use up what little products I might have left in a jar
  3. I’m going to use one product at a time until it is finished!

Hair Challenge Junkie

Standard

In addition to being a Product Junkie (PJ), I also like to dabble in Hair Challenges.

I started off the New Year joining MopTop Maven’s 2011 Ayurvedic Hair Challenge. I committed to using Ayurvedic and Natural products for 6 months. What is Ayurvedic you may ask??? MopTop Maven (MTM) explains Ayurvedic regimens typically include cleansing the hair with herbal infusions, and conditioning the hair with nourishing oils. The result is hair that is extremely healthy, thick, and full of body. Ayurvedic regimens can be as simple (incorporating a few elements), or as complex (following a strict regimen, cutting out all commercial products) as you choose. I knew I wouldn’t be able to cut out my commercial products (all Natural of course) so I went with the combination of incorporating the elements found with using the herbal infusions for pre-washing and deep conditioning and using my commercial products for styling.
