Answering the TOP question from my video where I stopped using coconut oil: what products are you using now!?

I’ve been pretty busy lately, so these products are LITERALLY just what I’ve been able to grab quickly and locally, and use on my hair. Of course, I’m still pretty new at not using coconut oil in my natural hair, so this list will definitely be more streamlined later on, but for now, I just wanted to quickly answer your question and show you what I’ve been using! I hope it helps! Xo!! Nap

Where are my fitness beauties with locs? Chescaleigh just posted a new video full of tips on loc freshness and maintenance before and after working out. She tried our Peppermint Essential Oil and Jojoba trick and loved it! That’s what I love about DIY natural beauty…it works for everyone! Check out her review.

anonymous asked:

Do you wash your hair with warm or cold water?

I cleanse with warm water! The heat lifts the cuticle, so the toxins inside can be removed and health/moisture can be received. I then rinse with cold water, which closes the cuticle, to avoid frizz and help retain the moisture I applied.

My Weekly Wash Routine for Short Hair

Hair Update!

It’s been about a month since my Devachan haircut and since i’ve stopped using shampoo. I’m super sold on this modified hair regimen. It’s growing faster than ever. My rules are: No heat. No brushing. No combing. Detangling with my fingers and as few hair products as possible. I think as naturals, many of us use so many different products, at once, to try and force a perfect curl pattern/style. But the point of being natural is living as close to actually being natural, as possible! Some of you post youtubes and use 4-5 different products!? Being simple and low maintenance is key. That should be your challenge. Minimalism. I always think of myself stuck on an island and having to stay fly with nothing around me!

*Sorry for the shitty lighting and sleepy eyes, I know you can barely see the texture, but I wanted to show you guys the length*

A lot of you come to me complaining of dry strands or an itchy scalp but aren’t willing to cut down (or stop) your usage of shampoo. This product, the Devacurl “No Poo”, is the compromise. It gives you that clean feel you’re assuming conditioner-washing won’t provide, without the drying agents found in regular shampoo. Give it a try! Incredible all natural ingredients, too. And maybe it will help you wean yourself from that bottle of shampoo!

I attribute a lot of my fullness to not using shampoo, at all. Last time I used any was back in Feb. I keep my scalp healthy by deep conditioning under my Huetiful Steamer once a week and deep massaging my scalp with extra virgin coconut oil before washing my hair. I never deal with buildup. Also, if you find your scalp to be clogged up, you’re probably using products that are way too heavy for you or you’re too heavy handed while applying them! Modify your regimen, keeping those tips in mind, and see if you get different results.

anonymous asked:

can you recommend some good moisturizing conditioners to use for cowashing?

My two staples are the Raw Shea Butter Restorative by Shea Moisture (Target, Duane Reade) and the White Camellia by Aubrey Organics (Whole Foods).

anonymous asked:

Hi Fran! I was reading on BGLH about apple cider rinses in lieu of shampoos. My question is: I like to do my deep conditoner before I clarify or wash my hair. So, would it be dring to my hair if I do the deep conditioner first then wash with apple cider vinegar? What do you suggest? Thanks!

Hey! It would be a bit of a waste of deep conditioner to use it before clarifying your hair. The process of clarifying is to strip your hair (removing what your shampoo/conditioner may have missed) and scalp of product. You would essentially be applying the DC just to remove it. Because clarifying can be slightly drying, it would make way more sense (hair and pocket wise) to deep condition afterwards. But, as I always say, everyone’s hair is different. Try both methods and see which one your hair responds to best. Hope that helps!

Here’s my video on Clarifying hair, in case you missed it.

Tresemme Naturals Line

I recently started using the Tresemme Naturals Conditioner with Aloe Vera & Avocado. It’s only $4.99, for the big 25 ounce bottle, so I figured why not give it a try. It’s silicone free (won’t strip your hair of it’s natural oils) and has perfect slip (level of water soluble creaminess for detangling), making my hair feel super soft after it dried. And it smells hella nice! So: it’s effective, cheap, can be bought anywhere and doesn’t smell horrid. Check check check! You can pick it up at any local CVS, Target or Ricky’s. I just saw it on Amazon for $5.11, too: http://www.amazon.com/Tresemme-Naturals-Nourishing-Moisture-Conditioner/dp/B003RSY1NE
