Egg

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

Egg is used worldwide as a beauty product and a hair product. We use it a lot in our DIYs and I have started to use it in my weekly face routine.

Eggs are laid by female animals of many different species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and fish, and have been eaten by humans for thousands of years. The most popular choice for egg consumption are chicken eggs.ย Egg yolks and whole eggs store significant amounts of protein and choline,ย and are widely used in cookery. Due to their protein content. [SOURCE]

Canola

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

How are you doing today? I’ve been researching about oils to help in hair growth and I came across canola oil, therefore I began to research about it.ย Canola is not endorsed in the natural hair community and from my research this seems to be a great oil for your hair.

Canola seeds are used to produce canola oil since 43% of it is oil.ย Canola is modified type of rapeseed. It belongs to the mustard family (canola is closely related to Brussels sprout, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage). Cultivation of rapeseed started four thousand years ago. Medical studies in 20th century showed that rapeseed contains erucic acid (chemical substance) that may induce harmful effects in humans when consumed in large quantities. Soon after, scientists created genetically improved, healthier version of rapeseed, named canola. Newly created plant contains minimal amount of erucic acid, it is resistant to herbicides and it can be consumed safely. Thanks to all these features, canola is one of the most important agricultural crops today. [SOURCE]

Molasses

I have had molasses around my home for awhile – so long it didn’t expire. One day I needed to deep condition my hair and my mom suggested the use of molasses. It was great to my hair so I continued to do so when I was out of a deep conditioner. Check out my DIY deep conditioner here with this superfood here.

Did you know that Molasses was a sugar? The most nutrient-densed sugar? It is made when sugar cane syrup is boiled for the third time creating what you would call “blackstrap molasses.” This is very unrefined and is the best choice if you want to reap the benefits for your hair and skin.
