Hair Pt1 The Girls

So I have began the Jamaican Castor Oil experiment as it is said to be a great tool in aiding hair growth. Since I am also using other products, not sure if I will be able to attribute hair growth to the castor oil, but we shall see.






The 1st 4 photos are of Lady O, the 2nd 4 are of Lady C. The 1st photo of each set is just after washing, the 2nd of each set is after brushing, 3rd of each set is back of twist and last photo of each set is front of twist.
I used bobby pins to keep the twist flat, something I saw Naptural85 do when she was performing a twist out. (you can google her name and you can get access to her You tube channel, she is awesome).

Products used:
Shea Moisture Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine Shampoo
 365 (Whole Foods Brand) unscented conditioner with added  Jamaican Black Castor oil
 Shea Moisture Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk with added Jamaican Black Castor oil
 Queen Helene Royal Curl Curl Smoothing Oil
My homemade Shea Hair Creme
bobby pins

While imperfectly perfect me is not receiving any thing in return for endorsing these products, they will be accepted :-).. I use these products because I like them and they work so far (well except for the Castor Oil since this is a trial run with this product).

Happy Hair Y'all!!!!

Hair Cremes

This is the one I am using for me and the girls, I used:
16 ounces of Unrefined Shea Butter (I purchased from a vendor at the Nashville Farmers Market)
1 Heaping Tablespoon of Virgin Coconut Oil (purchased at Tj Maxx)
2 Teaspoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Trader Joes brand)
1 Tablespoon of Jojoba Oil (Dessert Essence brand purchased at Whole Foods)
1 Tablespoon of   Sunny Isle Extra Dark Jamaican Black Castor Oil (purchased through Amazon)
10 400 iu Vitamin E capsules (cut open and squirted in container, Whole Foods Brand)


I made this concoction to send to my Mother and my little cousin in St. Louis, I used:
16 ounces Unrefined Shea Butter
2  Heaping Tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil
2 Teaspoons of Sweet Almond Oil (I purchased this from Value City many moons ago)
2 Teaspoons fo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Jojoba Oil
2 Tablespoons of Jamaican Black Castor Oil
10 400 iu Vitamin E capsules

I used more of a few items in this product because my brother told me he thinks my Mom is losing hair (possible due to the medicines she is taking after her stroke) and my little cousin has eczema and has had hair loss issues in the past..

I will keep experimenting with the products and next week, I plan on making some body butters and scrubs.

P.S. because of the ingredients used, these can also be used as body butters, but I made them for hair purposes. 

Smooches,

Hair Growth Challenge

Today is March 1st and I've decided to start a new hair care regime and see how much my hair grows. I have been reading about some folks success with Jamaican Black Castor Oil, so I've decided to give it a try. I made a hair balm with it and I have mixed it in my conditioner, my shea moisture hair milk and I will also mix it with water and put in a spray bottle.

Another blogger also talked about using Indian Healing Clay as a pre-poo treatment and I will also do that, prior to washing my hair which I only plan to do twice this month, today and on the 17th.

I will also be trying the Castor Oil out on the girls, so look for our 1st pictures later tonight.
