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“! 🙂
