growing natural hair

ok but like….. why do some people in the pjo fandom get upset if you imply Annabeth cares about her appearance.

Like I see some posts theorizing why Annabeth has such long “princess” hair and most of them are along the lines of “Why would such a practical person have such impractical long hair??? It’s so out of character???? She would so be the type of person to just chop it all of so she wouldn’t have to deal with it. She doesn’t care about vanity.”

I mean don’t get me wrong, I know Annabeth isn’t the type of girl to spend hours on her appearance every morning. She is the practical, “I have things to do” girl but that doesn’t translate into “I don’t care at all about my appearance and I put in no effort in at all.”

Like maybe there isn’t some convoluted backstory and she might just have super long princess hair because she simply feels pretty about it?? That she likes the way it makes her appearance looks?? And that’s completely ok??

It’s already canon that Annabeth accessorizes - she wears bandanas and earrings and necklaces - so why is it such a stretch that she just likes having long pretty hair??

Just, It’s ok for a strong female lead to care about her appearance. It’s ok if Annabeth does something to look pretty.

Essential oils for hair growth:

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

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

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 Oil

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 Oil

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.

how i grew my hair in like a day

(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 

-2 eggies 

-olive oil 

-coconut oil (like the solid kind) 

-shower cap 

-cling wrap 


 -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!

check my tag “long dong hair” to see my results

It’s funny (and by funny I mean horrible) how the guys that consider makeup to be “unnatural” and “false advertising” are almost always the same ones that shame women for not being completely hairless. How is not having hair where we naturally grow hair any less “false advertising” than makeup?

What I Hear on The Daily about Relaxed Hair

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)
