Best Oils for Relaxed Hair | My Picks

If you aren’t at least using hair products that contain some natural oils, I think your hair is really missing out.  Due to the way that chemical relaxers straighten our hair, it has a tendency to be dry and frizzy.  Choosing the right hair products help to ensure our hair is acting its best.  And natural oils target those specific issues.  With regular use, you will notice an increase in the hair

Beyond Vanity: Addressing Thinning Hair

After longer hair, the next most important thing a girl on a hair journey seeks is thicker hair.  And we’ve all seen posts and videos sharing tips for thicker hair.  But when you’ve made all the changes to your hair regimen and you’re still dealing with thin hair or the even more frustrating thinning hair, it’s time to dig deeper.  When women start noticing hair loss/thinning, the first thing most of us

My SL to MBL Relaxed Hair Regimen

As I start to rework my current hair regimen, I thought it would be best to document the hair regimen that got me to MBL for those who are still trying to find a regimen that works for them.  I went from Shoulder Length to Mid-back Length in 3 years.  And even though I’m in the middle of revamping the whole thing this regimen gave me consistent hair growth.  It

Why Add Strength? You want to add strength, or more specifically protein, to your hair because it adds structure to the hair shaft making it more resistant to breakage and more capable of retaining moisture.  Our hair is made up of proteins but chemical treatments and heat tools can deplete it of some of it’s structural components.  Protein treatments and/or other hair products containing proteins allow us to reinforce our
