Week 1 Update: Using Groganics DHT Blocker System for Natural Hair Loss

Week 1 Update: Using Groganics DHT Blocker System for Natural Hair Loss

I started using Groganics DHT Blocker System for my hair loss research after trying Pura D'or for 3 months. One of the main issues that I had with using Pura D'or was the dryness my natural hair had after using it. The only way to fix that was to modify my wash day routine as shown below:




Another issue I had was the inconsistent results. At the beginning, the hair loss was reducing, However, after a while it increase again. My medications were the same and I did not have any issues that could cause this.

The last issue was when I decided to incorporate my full routine of using Apple Cider Vinegar to treat some dandruff.. well.. I lost so much hair that wash day, read this to see. Click Here

Currently, I have been using Groganics DHT Blocker System  for a week now and I decided to share my findings so far.

Here is how I use it:



Sunday January 22nd, 2017
I started using this product line. I shampooed with the Groganics Deep Freeze Shampoo, left it on for 10 minutes, while hair was in twist. Then used the Groganics Deep Freeze Conditioner, still hair was in twist. Rinsed, Massage scalp with my diy hair oil. Applied SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner as my leave in and sealed my hair especially my ends with Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Put my hair in a roll and tuck style.

Tuesday January 24th, 2017
My hair was still feeling moisturized despite the fact that I did not deep condition my hair. This really surprised me because as you read earlier, this was an issue I had with Pura D'or. With my hair twisted, I did the exact wash day routine as I did January 22nd. The next day, I did use Eden Bodyworks Curl Defining Cream to put my hair into twists because of my gym workout.

Friday January 27th, 2017
I decided to wash my hair loose (without putting it in twists) and also gradually start incorporating some of my staple products. I shampooed with Groganics, left on for 10 minutes, rinse, conditioned with Groganics, left on for 10 minutes, rinse, applied my deep conditioner,  SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque, used my Thermal Care Hot Head heated cap for 30 minutes. Rinse. Massage scalp with diy hair oil. Applied SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner as my leave in and sealed my hair especially my ends with Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Put my hair in twists.

Today is Sunday, one thing that I will add in this week is my protein treatment and also try to keep my hair in one style throughout the week. The style will probably be twists. I will write a post next Sunday with updates.

8 YEARS OLD TEACHES HOW TO FLAT TWIST NATURAL HAIR #NaturalHair #KidsHair

8 YEARS OLD TEACHES HOW TO FLAT TWIST NATURAL HAIR DiscoveringNatural


In this video, Lil Sis teaches Big Sis how to flat twist natural hair using our new member of the family, YOLANDA

A BIG THANKS TO @Afrikanhairgod for all his tips on choosing the right mannequin and tools needed.

The girls got Yolanda as a gift from Mommy and Daddy and have been using her to learn how to twist natural hair, how to braid natural hair and how to cornrow natural hair.

We decided not to get a natural hair mannequin this time because we didn't want to have the girls struggle so much with knots and tangles in natural hair. The purpose is to first learn the technique of braiding natural hair. They do know how to detangle natural hair as you can watch here: http://bit.ly/2jE2OEu

A Little Hair Loss Setback: Pura D'or and Apple Cider Vinegar

A Little Hair Loss Setback: Pura D'or and Apple Cider Vinegar | DiscoveringNatural


If you have not read my introduction into testing Pura D'or for Hair Loss, please read about it here.
I have used it with success for the past one month. Here is how I normally use it:





Today, I decided to try doing an Apple Cider Rinse using Bragg Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, water and peppermint oil. The purpose of this rinse mixture was to aid in dandruff treatment. I have done this test in the past and shampooed afterwards with SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo. I have never experienced so much hair loss as I did today.

Here is a comparison of my last wash day shown in the video above and today's wash day
A Little Hair Loss Setback: Pura D'or and Apple Cider Vinegar | DiscoveringNatural

As you can see, the size almost tripled. In addition, my natural hair was extremely stripped, hard feeling, and tangled. After shampooing with Pura D'or Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo, I use SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner to condition and restore the moisture. Left it in for 3 minutes and directed on the package. Then proceeded as shown in the video above.

What I have LEARNT:
Never use Apple Cider Vinegar rinse in conjuction with the Pura D'or Shampoo. It works okay with a hot oil treatment

Caring for NATURAL HAIR when DISABLED or HANDICAPPED #naturalhair DiscoveringNatural

Caring for your hair with disability or some form of handicap to your hands can be quite difficult. In this video, I give some tips as to what you can do to help with caring for your natural hair.
Doing styles like protective styles and low manipulative styles can reduce the amount of times you manipulate your hair. Finding someone to help you is best when styling your hair and even when washing your natural hair. In addition, look for organizations that cater to handicap or disabled people.
