Tresses Thursday 4/20/17

Hi and welcome to another Tresses Thursday, where I share hair updates, hairstyles, and tips. This week’s post is about a very simple, easy hair style that just takes patience and two mirrors.

First, I washed my hair using something new, Nature’s Gate. I used their Aloe Vera + Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Shampoo and their Henna + Avocado Shine Enhancing Conditioner, which I believe they do not make  anymore because it is no longer listed on their website. What interested me so much in this line of hair care is that their shampoo and conditioner had specific vital ingredients listed on the front of the bottle.

I still used  Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner and combed my hair with a thick-toothed comb to distribute it thoroughly through my hair. Then I twisted all of my hair in to a low bun at the base of my next for a few days.

After a couple of days I unwrapped the bun, and parted the hair into six sections. I used a hand held mirror to make sure the parts were straight and even. From right to left, I braided each section along my head.

At an organic market I was able to find an all-in-one Pure Daily
Moisturizer called Booda Butter. I 20170416_113003.jpghave been using it for last couple of weeks to twist my dreads and let me tell you it is fantastic! For awhile I was just using water and the Direct Leave-In Conditioner, which wasn’t enough to have the hair lock. This Booda Butter boasts that there are 50 ways to use it. It is extremely useful, versatile, and a little goes a long way.

Hi and welcome to another Tresses Thursday, where I shareĀ hair updates, hairstyles, and tips.šŸ˜€Ā  My goal every week is to try a different hairstyle, and this week’s surely is brand new and extremely simple.

First, I washed my hair usingĀ  Andalou hair products, then putĀ Giovanni Direct Leave-In ConditionerĀ in.Ā After that IĀ used a thick-toothed comb to distribute it thoroughly
through my hair. Then, I parted my hair from the top of one ear to the other and twisted the bottom section into a bun to be dealt with later. With the hair in the front I parted it into four sections. Each section before getting twisted along my head received about a quarter sized amount of Desert Essence J0joba Oil.Ā The remaining hair from the twists against my head got twisted into a bun.

With the front done, I moved on to the back section. I applied a quarter-sized amount of jJojoba oil to it, combed it through, and then braided the rest.

And there you have it!

Hello and welcome to Tresses Thursday, where I will share hair styles and tips!

Now that I am an organic vegetarian I love my hair. Before I transitioned to eating organic food, my hair was a nightmare. Ā In a previous post, Hair Battle? Not So Much…, I talked about theĀ struggle of learning and taming my hair and how Organic food helped with that.Ā As much as my hair has improved, could it get better? My mom suggested that I look in to hair products that had the similar standard of the food weĀ consumed. It took awhile, but I stumbled upon these products!Ā  Continue reading Tresses Thursday
