curly-afro

✊🏾😃Best Black History Month ever!!❤️so many fun events are happening, everybody’s embracing their Afros and curly hair! and now Beyoncés new song and tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party at the Super Bowl✊🏾🔑During Civil Rights in the 60s & 70s they armed themselves with guns, exercised their legal rights and watched the police from committing acts of police brutality in their neighborhoods. They wore their natural hair to embody self love and pride. They provided housing, community activities, free food programs and education about Black history to the children because it wasn’t being taught within the general education system. The BPP was mostly made up of Black Feminist❤️ #HistoryLesson#BlackPantherParty#CivilRights#BlackPowerMovement#Struggle#Freedom#AfricanAmerican#blackhistorymonth#RiseUp#Community#Power#Love#Revolution#Beyonce#SuperBowl#BlackFeminist by azeemalexander

Secret to hair growth/healthy hair:

EAT:
- greens
- black eyed peas
- carrots
- oranges

DRINK:
- water (obviously)
- tea with honey NO SUGAR
- cucumber & pineapple drink (homemade, easy recipe)
- cucumber water
- green smoothie (spinach, banana, almond butter)

Drink water daily. The rest of the drinks though… drink whenever you have time/feel like it. But always drink water.

HAIR CARE - FROM ROOTS TO ENDS:
- Indian oil (pre shampoo) ~ pre shampoo means leave in over night and wash the very next day (first rinse off with warm water. Then wash your hair with whatever shampoo you normally use. Rinse your hair off with cold water. Then condition with the conditioner you normally use and rinse with warm close to cold water (lol does that make sense?The shampoo and conditioner I normally use are Tresemme and or Pantene)

- Canola oil (moisturize/deep conditioning) ~ I’ve used this for 3 entire months last year (July-September) my hair was at shoulder length in July. Armpit length by September. October-December I never moisturized my hair. Just regularly shampoo’d & conditioned three times a week. I never use hot oil btw. Just room temp.

- Coconut Oil (moisturize/deep conditioning) started using late January till now (24/7, twice a day) my hair is now to my nipples, heeeeyyyyyyy 👌💁

***STAY AWAY FROM THE FLAT IRON***
Use the hair blow dryer to lock in moisturizer. I blow dry my hair for 20-30 seconds. Then I shake my head like a wet dog. Whatever


IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE ENDS OF YOUR HAIR. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS MOISTURIZE YOUR ENDS.

I don’t like putting my hair up, I barely do so unless I feel like “switching it up”.

I hardly sleep with a bonnet on. And I hardly twist, knot, and or braid my hair. I always comb my hair in the shower while conditioner is in and I rinse off with warm, sometimes cold water.

When I rinse my hair with cold water, it makes my hair shiny and soft. No frizz.
With warm water, shiny but frizzy and soft.
