Brown Sugar Hair Scrub

Reading through information about natural hair recipes, I stumbled upon Harmonyonline's Blog. She talks about how she used brown sugar/white sugar to cleanse her scalp by mixing it in her conditioning treatment. I chose to mix it with my shampoo, as I saw some people suggested this or as a pre-shampoo deep conditioner(Glamzini). I think doing the shampoo option is better for fear of the sugar not coming completely out of my hair. I followed my sugar poo with conditioner that I added honey, avocado and olive oil, and then followed this up with an ACV(apple cider vinegar) rinse with rosemary essential in it. I detangled with the conditioner in my hair, which I learned works better for me and then twisted my hair into sections. I have to say my hair felt so silky and soft, I didn't want put product in it to shingle it using my Kinky Curly Custard. I suggest that anyone looking for a good scalp cleanser, give sugar a try, you'll be surprised at the results.

Herbal Essence Hello Hydration

I started using Herbal Essence Hello Hydration shampoo and conditioner last week, and I have to say it did pretty well in my hair. So, far it has potential to be a go to shampoo when I'm unable to make my own. Only thing I did was add avocado oil to my hair when I conditioned it, which helped tremendously with detangling. I have never been able to detangle with such ease, well that I can recall, but this was amazing. I know some people mix the conditioner and oil in a container first before they put it in their hair, not me I just rubbed on top of my hair. Overall, I think it worked out well and my friend Nora, who two strand twisted my hair afterwards using some Shea butter stuff I made, said my hair looked great.
