Wash Day Diary: July 30th 2014: SheaMoisture SuperFruit and Black Tea

Gotta love SHRINKAGE


For nearly 2 months now, I have been doing Black Tea rinses weekly in my hair and love the results I have been getting. I decided to use it with the SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque to test how it works. Since this hair masque will be my new Moisturizing Deep Conditioner, I need it to work well with my Black Tea rinse because I have seen great changes with my hair in terms of shedding and breakage from doing these weekly rinses. The other Moisturizing Deep Conditioner I use is  Eden Bodyworks Deep Conditioner . Which do I like better, right now, the SheaMoisture one is winning.

Wash Process
  • Detangle and prepoo with Trader Joe's Coconut Oil and VO5 Strengthening Conditioner.
  • Co-washing with  Eden Bodyworks Cowash and rinsed off
  • Apply Black Tea Rinse
  • On top of that apply SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque
  • Leave on for 30 mins
  • Cool water rinse to promote shine and lay down my cuticle
  • Squeeze off as much water with hands, no t-shirt
  • Let water absorb in hair while dressing up. Covered with plastic cap to avoid dripping

Post-wash Process
Tutorial for Braid and Twist:


Tutorial for Bantu Loop:

  • Apply SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Edge Treatment to edges.
  • Wrap twists around head and secure with bobby pins for stretch.

Product Review: SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Edge Treatment

SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Edge Treatment
SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Edge Treatment

When I found this product at the 4th CVS we visited, I was not really planning on buying it. I usually do not use much on my edges except my Jamaican Black Castor Oil or my DIY Shea Aloe Butter to lay my edges. My initial thought and MISTAKE was to assume that this was an Edge Tamer.

First of all, what is SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Edge Treatment?


According to the info on the jar This precision styling gel provides a touchable hold while nourishing edges. Effectively blocking humidity, while controlling reversion and flyaway hair around edges for sleek, frizz-free styles.
Edges "kinda-tamed"

My Honest Thoughts:
This product does really well in moisturizing and nourishing the edges, but however if you are looking for a strong hold, this is not the product for it. It does give a soft hold and is great for someone like myself that does not like hard gel along the edges. Hard gels can actually damage edges.  I did not experience any product build up using this product.

From different wordings on the packaging, I believe this product is geared towards naturals who use heat, however, due to the terms, flyaway and anti-reversion.

You only need a very small amount of this product because due to Glycerin (which is the first ingredient), you will encounter a bit of oiliness and stickiness on your fingers. As far as controlling reversion and flyaways, I feel that I will need to add another gel on top of this product to get the job done.
Natural Hair Bun

My main goal for this product is to help grow my edges. Since I have to usually dilute my thick Jamaican Castor Oil, this is a better solution. This 4oz jar ($7.99) contains the following ingredients:

QOTD: My Hair is Breaking Constantly, What Can I Do?



First of all, let us make sure that the hair you observe is actually broken hair and not shedding hair. Hair that is shedding is one that has gone though its lifecycle. It would have a white bulb at the end of the hair strand. Hair that has experienced breakage will not have this white bulb. If your hair is longer, it will be shorter than the shedded hair.

Now to answer the question.

There can be several reasons why your hair is breaking.

Lack of moisture

Make sure that you are moisturizing your hair on a consistent basis. There are different ways you can moisturize your hair. Watch this:



  
Lack of Protein

 Even though hair is protein, when it becomes damaged, the shaft has missing gaps that need to be fixed.

Doing regular protein treatments can help strengthen the hair shaft. 

Overmanipulation of the hair

Make sure that you are not combing your hair while dry. If you have to comb your hair and it appears dry, spritz it with a little bit of water to help soften it, or had some moisturizer. Natural hair is quite fragile.

Styles your hair is in

If your hair is in a style that puts too much tension on the hair follicles, this can cause breakage. The most common of such breakage is along the edges.

Wash Day Diary: July 24th 2014 : Trim Those Ends

How to Trim Natural Hair

What you are thinking: Didn't I just wash my hair 2 days ago?
My response:  Yes. However, I used a product that gave me a bit of product build up because I used too much.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today's wash day was a bit different. It was time for a trim. My last trim was April 28th, 3 months ago. Yeah... I am a person of habit. I'm quite proud at myself for keeping up with my trims, something that I was on my 5 Natural Hair Goals Plan for this year.

In the past, I trimmed my hair damp, but this time, I did it dry.  Okay... I'm getting ahead of myself... here is what I did.

Post Wash
  • Apply Oil Mix
  • Use SheaMoisture Curl and Style Milk for moisture
  • Apply Grapeseed Oil to protect from heat damage.
  • Sat under hooded dryer for 20 mins at Medium heat. Why? I was experimenting a theory....Why? That's what bloggers do. ;)
  • Hair was still quite damp as if no heat was used. . What a waste of time
I noticed that after several hours, my hair still felt quite moisturized and so soft. Thanks to my newest product!! Loved it!!

Dry Trim Process
  • Unravel each twist, examine the edges
  • Trim as needed
  • Spritz  hair with water
  • Apply my DIY Shea Aloe Butter to seal in moisture
  • Retwist and twirl the ends.
  • Repeat till done.
That's all, folks!!

Wash Day Diary: July 19th 2014 : I'm In LOVE!!




I'm in LOVE! with SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque

Yes! I said it.

Okay... now, today was Big Sis's wash day and I decided to try this hair masque on her hair. I felt confident that because of the promising ingredients, the product would work great for her hair. Well, this is the BOOM.com!! Do people still say that? LOL!

Anyways... I had to refreshen my hair and decided to try this on my hair.

Started off by co-washing my twists using Eden Bodyworks Cowash. After that, I applied this new SheaMoisture hair masque to my hair. My hair felt like B-U-T-T-E-R!  <<<FULL REVIEW coming soon, Click here to visit the channel and Subscribe if you have not so that you will get the review>>

SideNote: I did not do my Black Tea Rinse this time because I was testing a new product. However, shedding was still minimal.

I covered my hair with 2 plastic bags, my turbie twist, and a knitted hat to generate as much body heat as possible. Method 1 of using this product.  After 30 mins, I rinsed off.  Hair still felt like B-U-T-T-E-R and I noticed I did not have as much shrinkage as I did. The shine in my hair was GREAT!.
I also LOVED the smell, of course...since I have been using the SheaMoisture SuperFruit Body Wash for over 3 months now. Same smell.

I did my usual post-wash routine:
- Apply Oil mix to hair that is not towel dried ... water was just squeezed out.
- Apply Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk
- Twist hair and pin around head.

Plan for tomorrow: Head over to Ulta and STOCK UP ON THIS PRODUCT!!!

What's That Ingredient? Cetrimonium Chloride


What is Cetrimonium Chloride?
Cetrimonium Chloride is also known as  Cetyl trimethyl-ammonium chloride.  It is a quaternized ammonium molecule.

What does it do for our hair?
This ingredient acts as cationic surfactants, which can be used as emulsifying or conditioning agents.
Its conditioning properties helps to smoothen our hair cuticle and minimize flyaways because it stop the build up of static electricity in hair. This ingredient can also act as a detangler for the hair.

In My STASH
Here is a list of some of the products I currently use that contain it:
  • Eden BodyWorks All Natural Deep Conditioner
  • Eden BodyWorks Cleansing CoWash 
  •  Eden BodyWorks All Natural Curl Defining Crème
  •  SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Edge Treatment
  • SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque
  • Alberto V05 Herbal Escapes Strengthening Conditioner

    QOTD: Why Does My Hair Feel Dry After Moisturizing

     
     
    QOTD: My hair feels constantly dry even after moisturizing. What do I do?
     
     
    Answer:
    (1) First check your hair porosity. Make sure that if you have low or high porosity hair, you are doing the right things to lock in the moisture.
     
     



     (2) What are you using on your hair? Could the ingredients be drying up your hair 
     
    (3) How are you moisturizing your hair? Use the right method that works.
     
    (4) Are you staying hydrated?  Drinking lots of water can help
     
    (5) Make sure you are deep conditioning regularly.

    Wash Day Diary: July 14th 2014 : Back to Basics

    Cocoon Twists/ Bantu Loops Natural Hair
    Cocoon Twists/ Bantu Loops


    I started off my Wash Day by pre-pooing my hair with something I use to use when I was transitioning and earlier in my natural hair journey.
     
    Wash Process
    • Sectioned hair into 4 parts
    • To each section, I spritz hair with water, applied Coconut Oil, detangled, and then applied VO5 Strengthening Conditioner
    • Cover for several hours
    • Rinse thoroughly
    • Co-wash with Eden Bodyworks Cleansing Cowash Conditioner. I love this stuff
    • Rinse thoroughly
    • Spritz hair with pre-brewed and cooled Black Tea (mixture 1 cup of water to 1 bag of tea). This amount is perfect for my hair. I found that my previous Wash Day Black tea rinses always had left over. I hate wasting stuff!
    • WITHOUT rinsing off, apply Shea Moisture Purification Masque to deep condition
    • Cover hair with two plastic bags, a turbie twist towel and a knitted cap
    • Worked out for an hour to generate as much body heat as possible
    • Rinse and do a cool water seal.
     
    Post Wash 
    • Applied oil mix to hair
    • For each section to be twisted, applied Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk
    • Seal ends with DIY Shea Aloe Butter
    • Do a cocoon curl to the ends of twists
     
     
     
     
     


    3 Ways to Curl the Ends of your Twists


    The ends of your twists can determine how nice your twistout will be. There are several ways of curling the ends of your twists. Here are the 3 major ways:

    Cocoon
    In this method, you create a small bantu knot like loop at the ends of your hair. This method protects your ends and if you have a problem with retaining moisture at your ends, this method does the job. This method is also known as Bantu Loops, different variation but similar.

    Results:
    On Transitioning Hair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9TsKFn5AUc
    Bantu Loops on Natural Hair:



    Twirl
    This is the most common way to curl your ends. All you do is twirl your hair around your finger. To get the perfect curl, I always seal my ends with my DIY Shea Aloe Butter.

    Result:

    Perm Rod
    If you are having a hard time curling your ends, try using either a perm rod or even flexirods.

    Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner: FORMULA CHANGED


    Last month, I stopped using Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner. Why? Click HERE.  Well, I was at Trader Joe's today and decided to read the ingredient list of the conditioner, maybe they have removed parabens.

    YEAH!!

    This product no longer has parabens, however!!! They have now gone and added Silicones. Oh well... guess I will not be re-purchasing. Thankfully I still have the Tea Tree Tingle conditioner.

    My Best BraidOut on Natural Hair #HairSpaDay

     
     
    After numerous fails, I have finally been able to do my best braidout. The first time I attempted a braidout, I thought it was ehhh Ok. Click here to watch. That was a year ago.  A few month after that, I tried it again and it was better but not the best. Click here to watch that. I did not give up. Well, I did for 11 months. LOL!
     
    The thing that baffled me about braidouts was that when I was transitioning, my braidout was always a no fail. I always had issues with twistouts. Now fully natural, the opposite seem to be the issue.
     
    UNTIL NOW....
