Finger Coils

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

I’ve had many failed attempts at finger coiling my hair, for what reason? I don’t know. But I must say I’ve done 90% of my hair in finger coils and they came out perfectly. The front of my hair just doesn’t seem to keep the coils and I will not fight it anymore but keep what it gives me.

I’ve Noticed Softer Hair

Hey Queens! 👋

I am one to always wear my hair in mini twists. Here in Jamaica, we call them rope twists. Yesterday, I installed another head of rope twists and I noticed that my hair was as soft as ever than before. I was in awe.

I washed my hair on Thursday -the whole works of shampoo, deep condition, condition, apply a leave-in and then applied my black castor oil infused with argan oil mixed with coconut oil. This is the process I always used when washing my hair but I tweaked it a little. I wasn’t home by the way when I washed my hair. I was staying at my cousin’s house. Now, at his house he has a water heater.

Factual or Mythical Series: Water and Washing of Hair regularly dries out the Hair

That’s a myth. Water is the ultimate moisturizer. Our hair loves water. It’s our hair’s best friend.

Have you heard about the new trend in the natural hair community? The water-only washing (WOW) method? I’ve never done this method but I’ve watched a video of Naptural85 talking about her experience with this method. This method is quite straightforward. There are many other videos on YouTube that explain this process, as well as show their results with this method.

Regular washing of hair does not dry out the natural oils but instead is a great source of moisture for the hair. It assists with dryness as opposed to promoting it. The issue begins when a sealant, such as a leave-in conditioner or a natural oil is not applied after washing. As a result, the water in the hair evaporates leaving us with dry hair. For textured hair it is recommended that we wash our hair once a week but this WOW method is done every day (can you keep up with that?). Clean hair is healthy hair. Remember: Water is the only true form of moisture, if water is not present, neither is moisture. -Reign Elle

What’s In My Spray Bottle?

Hey Queens! 👋

Back with another post. I can’t believe we’re already in the fourth month of the year. Yaye! to reaching the fourth month of my blog.

Now today we’ll be talking about what I use to moisturize my hair on a daily basis. All natural-haired girls must have a spray bottle in and around their home somewhere that they use to help hydrate their hair but each girl has a different concoction in that bottle. Therefore, today I am going to share with you what’s in my spray bottle.

The simple concoction in my spray bottle is what I use to moisturize my hair every other day when it’s not in a protective style. In this bottle I store two ingredients:
