Stumbled upon one of my old posts today that made me smile. It's nice to feel like I'm living out some of the things that I set out for myself five years ago. Still a long way to go. Enjoying the journey. :)
I'm asked this question fairly often, and over the years the answer has changed. My hair isn't crazy about coconut oil (does nothing for me) or shea butter (eh.), but here are a few products that work wonders for me:
A few steps that I've added to my routine
that have helped retain length and minimize damage:
* taking daily (or when I can remember) biotin supplements * adding more cucumber to my diet (a tip I learned from one of my vegan friends, superveganpowers.com )
* doing twist/ braid outs vs. a pineapple at night (helps to decrease tangling and stretch my hair... combating shrinkage) * investing in products with quality ingredients
* dry hair with an ole t-shirt
and last but not least, one of these bad boys! makes comb outs sooo much smoother.
hope this helps, and I will update this post as I discover new products. :)
Here's one too many pictures from my interview with the Kxng RG Takeover and Miss H.E.R. This was my first (hopefully not last) radio interview and I was extremely nervous initially, but I really enjoyed discussing my brand.
