HOW TO: Moisturize your type 4 hair

Moisture is your hair’s best friend. So how then do you incorporate this into your life? I like to call this the midweek moisture. It is how to revamp your hair’s moisture levels right in the middle of the week. This is how to do it!!

What you need:

  • Spray bottle with water and humectant. I shared a spray bottle mixture in this post.

  • A leave in conditioning cream

  • Oil of choice

  • Shea butter/ grease

My preferred method has to be the L.C.O method… (Liquid Cream Oil)

What to do:

  • Separate your hair into sections. Working in sections is bae!!

  • Sprits your hair with your spray bottle mix.

  • Massage the water into your hair using the praying hands motion.

  • Apply your leave in conditioning cream.

  • Detangle some more…

  • Apply oil…

  • Then seal in the moisture with your butter.

After this… style your hair as desired.

This video by fusion of cultures explains the process.

How to detangle your hair

Hello loves,

Someone wrote to me and ask how to deal with her steel wool hair and I made a post about it. So can we just talk about hair already… (Filipino soaps though) today we talk detangling and as a bonus some great products that you may want to add in your stash. Also, in a later post I will let you in on all my product discoveries in a product post. ( hit like for a product post lol) now into the post!

Detangling basically involves loosening the grip your hair strands have on each other. You see I speak on behalf of us type four hair peoples mostly because our hair stands just love each other too much, they literally hug at each instant they get. While hugs may be lovely for us, when our hair hugs…we get frustrations. So let’s learn how to un-hug our hair strands.

YOU NEED:

  • Your fingers

  • A wide tooth comb

  • A spray bottle (read about my spray bottle mix here)

  • A conditioner : either leave in, rinse out or deep conditioner. The secret here is that it has to have lots and lots of slip.

HOW TO GO ABOUT IT:

  • Divide your hair into sections. Sections make it easier to handle thick hair

  • Take one section lightly mist it with water from your spray bottle until section is damp.

  • Apply your detangler of choice… preferably a conditioner

  • Massage the product into your hair gently coating each strand.

  • Begin to go through each section with your fingers separating your strands gently getting rid of tangles.

  • When it becomes generally tangle free then you can go through the section with your wide tooth comb. Start from the tips/ends of your hair going down to the roots and be extremely gentle

  • When you are done… put your hair in a twist so that it doesn’t curl up on itself, then move to the next section

  • Repeat these steps through your whole head.

Ps: you can also do the steps on wash day. I usually prefer to detangle my hair when styling after my wash but you may do it during or after deep conditioning.

this video is the closest to how i detangle my hair. hope it helps. (its by pure Estrogen on You tube)

How to: Faux tapered cut on Natural hair

Hello loves,

Happy new month!! How has been your hair journey?

Sometimes in your hair journey, your hair grows but you crave to have some short hairstyles. That was me a couple of weeks ago, when I saw some amazeballs tapered cut and wanted to recreate it. It is a fairly easy hairstyle and will take about 15-30 minutes to have on.

You need:

  • A rat tail comb for parting

  • Moisturised hair

  • Gel (or a soufflé) though it is optional

  • Shea butter mix. (I have some jars if you need some)

Method:

  • Part your hair in a way to have the crown separated from the rest of your hair. I would say from eyebrow end on either side of your head

  • Hold the hair at the crown of your head

  • Making clean parts begin to three strand twist your hair . (clean parts)

  • Bantu knot the middle section that you had put out of the way (use your gel, or shea butter mix)

  • Wait for at least 18 hours or until the knots are dry.

  • Then you can undo the knots and roll and tuck your three strand twists.

  • Slay away!!

I hope this makes sense. Lol.

I would love to hear from you: if there is any topic of interest please halla!!
