Protein…Happy Hair

As I mentioned in my unhappy hair post, my hair was extremely dry and just wasn’t acting right. After stalking all the natural hair vloggers for sometime now I decided to actually take some of there tips. I figured it was time to treat my hair with a little protein. After all she deserved it.

I started by trimming my ends, followed by my shampoo. Yes, Shea Moisture.

Freshly washed hair, looking not so bad after the trim.

The protein treatment I used was by the beautiful, talented and super amazing Whitney also known as Naptural85. It consisted of eggs, mayo, and honey. You can check it out below.

My hair soaked in the mixture. It got really messy; I had to cover my hair with my shower cap and a towel to prevent dripping.

I left it on for 45 minutes, rinsed with cool water and followed with my conditioner, then finger detangled.

Following the rinse, I applied my Curl and Style milk (moisturizer) and my Vatika Oil (sealer).

Yummy!! My Curls are back!!

Smooth Prepoo

So a short time ago I decided to stir up a mixture for my hair. I so wanted to share it with you all immediately, but I just had to ensure good results.

The first time mixture smelled so great, smelled just like candy which I loved. I used it as an overnight prepoo and the results were amazing!! My hair smelled good and it was extremely soft. The mixtures was also thick.

With the second time mixture I just used it as a quick prepoo. I put on my heating cap for about an hour and washed. It didn’t smell as good as the first mixture, and my hair was not as soft as it was with the overnight regimen. Though the mixture was a lot smoother than the first time mixture.

You too can mix your own prepoo!
Try it out with your own household kitchen items lying around. Be sure to share your results. I would love to hear about them all.

Until next time….
