Canola

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

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. 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. 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]

Queens Wear White

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

Yesterday, June 18, 2016 we laid my dad to rest and being that he was a very jovial man, my mom and I preferred persons wearing cheerful colors to the funeral. We were mourning but I am sure he’s in a better place smiling down on us and hoping we’d smile too.

My Wash Day Regimen

Hey Queens! 👋

I have finally come up with a wash day regimen that works for my hair. There is no one regimen that works for everyone, therefore, this may not work for you. You can try this method or take from it what you think would work for you.

My WashDay Regimen

My wash day regimen has evolved over the years and I am sticking with this one. I used to deep condition my hair before clarifying or shampooing but now I deep condition after. I also used to apply my deep conditioner to damp hair but it now works best on soaking wet hair.
