(i didn’t make this technique but i did test it and it works !!! you should probably do a length check before so when you finish this, you could see if there’s a difference)
things you’ll need
-coconut oil (like the solid kind)
-your regular shampoo and conditioner
so you gotta start out with your lovely hair. you don’t have to wash it (yet). part one of this magical mess is mixing 2 eggs (not small, like large) and ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil until it’s an even color. then you dump that funky mess on your head and coat every incredible inch of your hair, shower capping it and leaving it for an hour. after that hour is up, shampoo and condition your hair. melt the coconut oil and massage your scalp with it for about 5 minutes and then either shower cap it or cling wrap it. now go to sleep (unless it real early, then go to sleep when you’re tired/it’s nighttime). when you wake up, rinse it out and dry it up. length check, and hopefully it works for you too!
The revelation of the Vinsmoke siblings’ distinctive hair colors got me wondering: is Sanji’s hair color “natural blond” like we all thought it was, or is it actually “artificial yellow”? We don’t know what Sora’s hair color is yet but Judge does seem to be blond so did he get it from him? I mean even if Sanji’s a “dud” he still has curly eyebrows so could it be the same for his hair..???
Here are some oils to add to your hair to make it grow longer and more healthy, and how they each work!
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is known for its many talents. It’s powers date back thousands of years when it was used to cure viruses such as the common cold. Now it is a common ingredient used in over the counter acne medications.
Tea tree is a natural antiseptic which helps get rid of bacteria or fungi.
When applied to hair this is very beneficial to those who suffer from scalp irritations like dandruff, or lice. It acts as an exfoliant by removing debris from the scalp, allowing hair follicles to clear. Clear follicles mean room for natural oils to coat the hair and an easier environment for new hair to push through.
Bur oil is a precious gem many of us ignore. Bur, or burdock, is obtained from the burdock root. The oil is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols.
The fatty acids found in burdock are very rare and help hair grow. It helps by providing nutrients that help the oil glands and hair follicles function.
Peppermint oil is also essential for hair growth. This oil serves as an astringent which helps balance the scalp’s PH level. Pure peppermint oil can be strong, so dilute it with water before applying.
This oil works by penetrating the scalp and regenerating the hair follicle. Once this type of environment is created on the scalp, circulation will increase, and your hair will grow.
It can also help prevent hair loss, fight dandruff, and reduce excess oil! Excess oil can clog the follicle making it hard for new hair to resurface.
Lavender is an essential oil often added to products for fragrance. Originating from the Mediterranean, Lavender was used as a healing and relaxation aid for disorders such as stress and insomnia.
As we know, stress is proven to cause hair loss issues such as alopecia.
For hair, lavender aids in improving circulation and fighting infection. It can also be used to treat scalp conditions such as psoriasis!
Maintaining a healthy scalp is essential for healthy hair growth, which is why lavender can be a hero product.
Jojoba helps to moisturize the hair, by acting as our scalps natural oils.
Jojoba can be used to hydrate any part of the body, it even makes a good makeup remover.
The jojoba shrub itself is known for it’s ability to withstand harsh environments. If this plant can live worry free in the desert, imagine how well jojoba’s moisture can bind to your hair.Making sure your hair is hydrated at all times will ensure your strands don’t get dry and brittle.
How to use: Add 20 drops of each of these to a spray bottle and dilute the oil mixture with water. Spray your hair with the mixture, specifically on your scalp, and leave it on for a few minutes. Alternatively, add a few drops of one or more of the oils to your shampoo and conditioner and lather heavily and leave in for as long as you can.
“Your hair is relaxed? Wow, you must hate your culture”
“You must really hate yourself if you put chemicals in your hair”
“You just wanna be white”.
“You gonna end up bald if you keep relaxing your hair”
“Why aren’t you grateful for what God gave you?”
ANDDDDDD, last but not least…
“Relaxed hair is unhealthy and can’t grow long. Why’d you waste your time?”
I have nothing against natural hair. I think its gorgeous actually. Just not on me in particular. So I don’t hate it, I love it. Just didn’t love mine and it was difficult to handle. Ladies, wear a weave or wig if you want to. Rock your natural hair if you want to. Pull out yor ‘creamy crack’ if you want to. Its YOUR hair, YOUR decision.
Oh, and this goes out for one of my old friends who said something similar to the last post above…
Yeah, you were sooooo right. Relaxed hair IS unhealthy and can’t grow. *inserts annoyed eye roll*. True, ONLY if you don’t take care of it. By that, I mean don’t jus throw a relaxer on it and call it a day. Start a regimen, and take care of it.(Making one similar to Natural hair to just so people can understand I ain’t bashing natural hair)
As a transfer, I thought it would a lot more difficult adjusting to UCLA, but it hasn’t been! I have been able to make lots of friends since coming to UCLA which really gives me a sense of community. The only thing that is a bit difficult is adjusting to is the quarter system, it’s so fast! Midterms and finals come before you know it!
What has been the most challenging and most rewarding experiences you’ve acquired thus far? The most challenging thing has been trying to balance my social life, schoolwork load and YouTube channel. Since I’m in a sorority, during the first quarter we had tons of events to go to, so I felt like I didn’t have time for anything else. I did manage to keep my GPA high, but I wasn’t able to post any YouTube videos during the entire first quarter. This quarter I’ve learned to balance a lot more. I just got back from New York City last week for the brand Devacurl, and wrote a 4 page essay the very next day I got back.
Back in 2011, I really liked watching videos by YouTubers such as Meredith Foster and SunKissAlba. I always loved watching, but never thought about making videos myself. Around the same time, I had gained a considerable amount of followers on my Tumblr blog, and almost every day I was posed with the question, “How do you style your bangs?”. At the time, I straightened my hair every day and had really side swept bangs. Soon after, a few people suggested to me that I should make a video about it on YouTube and a few weeks later I did. A few videos later, I realized that I had a passion for it and continued making videos!
How long have you been on youtube? I’ve been on YouTube since March 2011, so it will be 6 years next month!
Do people from school find your channel?
Yes! Some of my friends have me on Instagram and Snapchat so they see my posts, but the ones who don’t, I’m not sure how they find it.
What does your username mean?
So back in the Myspace days (long ago), I used to go by “Pea” as in the first letter of my name, Paris. Shortly after I started going by Sweet Pea! It was my favorite scent at Bath & Body Works and one of my friends had recently commented on a photo of me saying, “You look cute, Sweet Pea!”. After that, when I began creating other forms of social media I wanted my username to be “@sweetpea” but it was taken. I then tried to make it “thesweetpea” and that was also taken. I was taking French classes as the time and “the” is “le” in French, so I tried “lesweetpea” and it wasn’t taken! :)
Who are your favorite YouTubers/friends on YouTube? A few of my favorite YouTubers are Meredith Foster and MyLifeAsEva. A few of my friends that have YouTube channels are Camille Johnson, Luhhsetty, Infinitely Cindy and Roxette Arisa.
What inspired you to go natural or wear your hair curly?
I used to constantly straighten my hair every week, and eventually I realized it was so damaging that I had to cut off 2 inches every 3-4 months. I really wanted long hair like when I was younger and I knew that would only happen if I stopped straightening it all the time.
Scalp Massage is great for promoting hair growth. In this video, I will show you how I use Ancient Secret Hair Growth oil to do my scalp massages: For more information on this oil : http://www.blackhairgrowth.biz
