A GRrreat Time @ NATURALS IN THE CITY 6

So it was all fun at this weekend’s Natural Hair meet up. I got to chatting with some very interesting ladies, ogled FABULOUS Hair-dos, made  a few purchases of natural hair products and got some new tips for growing natural hair…

Tip 1.  Rather than using a comb use fingers to de-tangle the hair.

Tip 2.  Use scissors to cut hair knots (I think they call them “fairy-knots”) instead of breaking them off.

Tip 3.   Eucalyptus oil is meant to be used sparingly… Now, I’m glad I got this tip right on time. I had actually started rubbing it on my scalp each night and it was yielding positive results in the scanty area on my head. So now I have reduced the ritual to twice a week. Someone please tell me if that’s good or bad!

Tip 4.  Biotin and MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) are recommended drug supplements for hair growth,  and with an addition of Vitamin C results are fantastic… Well, that’s what I was told O! I’m presently doing a little research of my own before jumping into the pool with the users. 🙂

 All in all, the 6th of July, 2013 was a good day. The hair tips, the products, the gist and sheer excitement I got seeing all the lovely natural hair styles and textures made the days’ event worth while. ‘TOTALLY looking forward to the next “Saturday of NATURALS IN THE CITY- A Natural Hair meet up“! 🙂

My next hair experiment… GINGER TREATMENT!!!!

So I’ve been doing some more digging around for literature on herbal remedies for hair loss and regrowth, and today I finally came across the spice Ginger roots! “Now why am I not surprised” I thought as I read through the articles. The tingling sensation one would get once its been applied to the scalp is enough to force those lazy follicle back into action.

Anyway, I’ll be testing some of the remedies along with some other Garlic and Onion remedies I’ve found once I take me weave down… Wish me luck! 🙂

Now worries, you’ll get a status report… but I imagine that will come say a week or two from now.

Henceforth its “LESS Ginger in my beer and MORE of it in my Hair!!!”… 😀 … BTW- you can find the articles on the remedies I’ve read up on below:

  1. Ginger Hair-Grow Scalp Treatment Formula
  2. Ginger Treatment for Hair – LIVESTRONG.COM
  3. Ginger Treatment for Hair – eHow Style
  4. Chinese Recipe to Prevent and Reduce Hair Loss

Please feel free to share if you have any home made remedies of your own.

Cheers! 😉

Celebrating my fro! :)

I had a good hair experience tonight.  I finally stepped out in a Fro and pips just LOVED it! 🙂 Wasn’t quite sure just what to expect but in the end I turned out to be a show stopper :D.. A famous singer here in my country, Yinka Davis,  actually told me I looked stunning! 😀

Well I’ve made this video as a sort of celebration of the night and also to encourage all my Alopecia sisters out there.

…We are who we are with or without our manes… Even with scanty ones to! 😉
