The hair growth serum!!! I love this oil, just love it so much. The smell is not offensive and helped my hair to become smoother from the roots, all the way to the tips. In dry climates, I notice that my scalp feels very dry and itchy, so I really appreciate this hair oil. My mother and sister currently have crochet braids, so this oil  couldn’t have came at the perfect time.

Borage & Flaxseed Follicle Strengthening Oil is an essential step to any loc care regimen. This completely plant-based product penetrates deep within your follicle roots to help support a stronger and more healthier scalp to promote hair growth.

3.Argan & Pequi Oil Shine Spray

This shine spray is the finishing touch to my protective styles and you will see me use this in part 2 of my locing series. The smell of the argan oil & pequi is amazing and the shine lasts for two days. I have used shine sprays in the past, but they just didn’t give me the coverage that I wanted.

 

Here are the ingredients for the shine spray:

Argan & Pequi Oil Shine Spray is your natural alternative to silicones. It only takes a few spritzes of this completely plant-based sheen to provide a lustrous shine that holds up against external factors like humidity , heat and the extreme cold.

Organic Beauty:Queen Bee Trading.Co

Nature has always been accessible to us in many ways, either by fresh herbs, spices and even through the bees this spring. That is what describes the Queen Bee Trading Co. Their products range from different categories, such as body care, face care, lip care, hair care, and so much more. The products that I received from Queen Bee Trading Co, was the Tea Tree Conditioning Shampoo & Moisturizing Conditioner Set – with Oat Proteins, Honeyquat. I was able to customize the scent of my shampoo and conditioner as well, making the whole experience of trying the products  fabulous.

My featured products overview:

image

The Tea Tree Shampoo was very creamy and had great lather. The scent of the Tea Tree is authentic, without being too overpowering. The packaging  is nice and rustic almost reminding me of organic honey in a container.

 

 

The Tea Tree Conditioner

The conditioner and the shampoo are like twins, except  one lather and the other is just creamy. The similarities are the same in terms of the authentic Tea Tree Scent. The conditioner had great slip and left my hair feeling cool and knot-free.

Homemade Coffee Hair Dye

What You Need-DIY Coffee Dye
A large bottle of cheap conditioner
1 tablespoon of instant coffee granules
1/4 cup of instant or brewed hot coffee
a plastic bag
an old towel

How to Color Your Hair with Coffee –

1. Pour half a cup of conditioner into a cup and add a tablespoon of instant coffee granules. Mix together with a spoon until the coffee is completely mixed in.

2. Put either 1 tablespoon of instant coffee in a cup and add 1/4 cup of hot water to it, or make a pot of strong brewed coffee. Now pour the 1/4 cup of instant hot coffee or 1/4 cup of brewed coffee into the conditioner/coffee mix and stir around till everything is mixed. Let sit for five minutes.

3. Now it’s time to head to the bathroom.

4. Drape an old towel around your shoulders to catch any coffee drips. Scoop up a little bit of the coffee mix and carefully apply it to your dry hair, being careful not to let it dribble too much down your face or arms or onto the floor.

5. Keep applying all the mixture until your entire head of hair is covered. Massage into your hair and scalp for two minutes.

6. Wrap the plastic bag around your head and tie up in a small knot.. The heat from the plastic bag and the trapped heat coming from your head makes the coffee ‘develop’ faster. Leave it on your hair for 15-30 minutes, then hop in the shower and rinse off. Shampoo it to get rid of the excess coffee, rinse again and rub dry with the old towel.

7. Blow dry as usual and, voila, coffee colored hair.

Wow!! Who knew Coffee was this diverse.
