Products That Will Get You Healthy, Thicker, Longer Hair

Here’s an overview of what IS helping my hair get to where its is. As oppose to where it has been.

October 24th 2010

I went natural after pressing my hair for 10 1/2 years. Products I was using, where damaging my hair more and more. These products included: Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding, a leave in conditioner by Mixed Chicks, Neutrogena’s Clarifying Shampoo. Also not know the complete knowledge of combing Black hair when it’s dry. I had no knowledge of how to take care of my hair.

This is why I’m posting a list of products AND the ingredients, that work wonders for African hair.

    Your hair looks beautiful. Do you do indigo with your henna because I do not see any redness in your hair?

    • Thank you, and no. I’ve never used indigo in my hair, only the nupur quality henna. But in the right light you can see auburn, and burgundy highlights.
      thanks for visiting. 🙂

    hey, which henna do you prefer ? nupur or the jamilia henna? also which is the best and which do you recommend for a newbie trying to go natural.

    • I love nupur henna. it rinse out well. gives my hair great shine. jamilia is good to. I just strongly prefer nupur.
      for someone new to henna, i suggest the nupur. it rinses out so well, and your hair will thank you for it.

        oh okay and currently how often do you henna? and for a newbie like me how often do you recommend me to henna a week?

      • In the winter I henna once a month. When I first went natural I henna twice a month. But if that takes up to much of your time. Do it once a month.
        Let me know if have anymore questions. 🙂 good luck

        hey i had another question sorry lol
        when you started going natural did you have some parts that were longer than others from heat damage? should i cut it all even? or should i let it grow naturally even ?
        I’m scared to cut it all even… i think i have a good length of hair in the middle and i do not want to cut it all and be close to bald 😦
        specially since i don’t have a perm i have always had natural hair i just straightened and sometimes weave it up.

      • When I went natural, my have was fried. Cutting it even didn’t look good, so, I cut my straight hair, and styled my hair with flex rods. I did this from 0ct 2011-june 2012. By then my kinks had grown lot longer, and I rock the fro.
        Its, really what you want to do with your hair. If don’t want to cut it don’t. Try henna, it’ll help with your hair texture.
