Hey Kinks what's up y'all hope everyone is doing g great and having a splendid Saturday?...
So by popular demand this is going to be a  step by step post to prepooing or better still to how I pre poo my hair..

Things I use to pre poo my hair is

Aloe Vera
Coconut oil or Olive Oil
 Or usually do a mix of different oils (You don't need to do this I just like being fancy sometimes lol)

I have so many post on benefits of oils and Co so please do will to check them out...

The pre pooing step is pretty basic and straight to the point. It should take you about 45mins to properly complete your full hair..

Step one:

Divide your hair into four equal sections

Step two:

Take one of the section and divide a small bit

Step three:

Take a cut open Aloe Vera and apply it to the scalp (Generously if I may add)

Step four:

Apply the oil to the hair itself (semi generously)

Step Five:

Finger detangle (this step is very important to the rest of your wash day because it will make it easier for you)

Step Six:

Loosely twist it down to get it out of the way

There you have it, it's basic and simple repeat the same step for the rest of you hair

Step Seven: Where a shower cap and leave in for 60 mins or overnight

Have an amazing weekend and I hope this post have been helpful to you.

Most naturals really suffer from hair breakage and I used to be a part of the team (even do my hair still breaks it has reduced a lot)

Here are five tips to help you manage hair breakage..

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.


Hey kinks what's up y'all? Happy weekend darlings..

So based on the numerous questions on hair growth, here are three reasons why your hair isn't growing.

YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  

YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way).. There are a lot of DIY's out there but you have to be c…
