natural hair vlog

anonymous asked:

How do you keep your natural hair moisturized?? I need some help sis!

I absolutely HATE products. Not because they aren’t good or anything but 

so I spend a lot of time finding ways to NOT have to buy a 21 dollar jar of some factory produced shea butter enriched with jojoba-coconut-glycerin oil from Jesus’s own personal garden. 

So I keep it simple. 

I wash my hair..roughly…once every two weeks. With sulfate free shampoo. I co-wash it when I feel like it. Once a month I do a a ACV (apple cider vinegar) rinse just because I like the way it makes my hair feel all clean. I say that because when I moisturize, I always want my hair nice and clean. OKAY. Oil my scalp and it’s time to go to work.

I use the same damn deep conditioner each and every time.

  • 2 dallops (lord don’t ask me for measurements please…I couldn’t give you an answer …just dallops…) of organic honey. This can be expensive at first, but if you buy a jar, it’ll last you. Honey is an AWESOME humectant (some fancy word for keeping things moist). 
  • Buy some regular ole plain yogurt from the grocery store. Two big scoops. You can get some strawberry-banana greek concoction if you want but that’s more yummy than helpful. Plus sugar, so no.
  • An oil. I’ve gone from shea butter oil, to tree oil, to argan oil (my FAVORITE, it smells so damn good). I don’t have a preference, it’s what my budget will allow. Use liberally (shruglife)
  • Sometimes, because I don’t know what I’m doing, I’ll squeeze some Organix Moroccan oil conditioner in there. (at this point I’m just grabbing shit). If you don’t have any, try mayonnaise. That’s right. MAYO. (I used to do a mayo/egg conditioner, but eggs are delicious and I don’t want to waste them on my hair)

Mix that shit all up. Slather on freshly washed hair. Put a cap on it (those self heating caps are THE BOMB) Let it sit. (I’ve gone hours because I’m lazy and forgetful.) Wash it out.

Most important finishing step. SEAL THE MOISTURE. Take your oil and apply it to moisturized hair. Not so much that it stains your bonnet, but enough that…well enough. 

Take the leftovers, put it in a container of some sort, store it for the next use. 

I’m going to start a natural hair vlog that is called “I kinda don’t know what I’m doing but it works!”

How to enhance your studying environment

A good study environment gives you a head study on productivity

- Distractions: It is all up to you. Some can work with background noise, and others cannot. 

- Well lit study areas provides extra brightness and keeps (me) alert.

- I love white boards

- A light healthy snack, carrots, boiled eggs, even veggie chips are full of flavor and helps you mind focus on the material as oppose to an empty stomach

- Keep regular study hours, repetition and discipline will carry you far in the process of studying.

- Watered down coffee. A little study trick that aided me in Costa Rica. My host sister told me water down coffee, is still warm and prevents the horrible crash you feel after the caffeine wears off.
