Shea Moisture recently released a Manuka Honey & Mafura line (as well as a Jamaican Black Castor Oil line) that I’m sincerely in love with.

Manuka benefits for hair: aids in the regrowth of thinning hair, prevents dry scalp and build up and dope for shine and combatting frizz.

Mafura benefits for hair: Contains essential fatty acids that are known to strengthen, deeply moisturize and soften dry hair. Also has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties for a healthier scalp.

In other words? Your hair health, scalp health and growth are about to be on 10! I’ve been using the conditioner and deep conditioner once a week followed by the Alikay Naturals Lemongrass leave-in (finger raked into freshly washed, soaking wet hair) and then a layer of their Shea Yogurt Moisturizer on top, to seal it all in (Discussed this organic brand a few months back. Here)

Both lines were purchased at Target! The weather is changing up so this is my go-to healthy hair regimen for the cooler temps.

P.S. ALL of these smell like absolute heaven on earth. Seriously.

Have any of you tried these products? Thoughts?

By homemade hair butter smooths my hair no matter what I did in my wash.
My ends curly and smooth, no frizz unless I heavily separate my hair, and no crunchy or dry feeling.
I used to think I HAD to have a curl defining cream to go with it but yesterday I braided my hair with a leave in and avocado oil + my butter and my hair is deFINEd.

I failed to post the ingredients I made my hair cream at like 1am with:
1/4cup avocado butter
1/4 cup mango butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup aloe Vera gel
1tbsp jbco
1tbsp avocado oil
7 drops argan oil
11 drops lavender oil (fragrance)
this is enough for 8oz. container

DIY: Coconut Milk, Olive & Avocado Oil Deep Conditioner

Yooooo, lol. Let me tell you how happy I was to have incorporated coconut milk into my wash day regimen. I hit up my local Kroger this weekend, and omg. I’m glad I did. I decided to try coconut milk in conjunction with olive & avocado oil to get maximum moisture, and I did. My hair literally felt like butter, and the coconut milk help me to really detangle my hair. 

After rinsing out the deep conditioner, I immediately sectioned my hair into bantu knots to let them air dry when I went out. However, next time I will be more cautious with the amount of coconut milk I use, because the hair can feel oily if too much of the milk is added—which would just require another rinse.

The ingredients are as follows:

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon of EVOO
  • 1 tablespoon of Avocado oil
  • Your choice conditioner as a base

I used no product to set my bantu knots, btw—this is what my hair looked like a couple of hours as it was drying. The shine & softness I gained is amazing!

What are some good curly hair products?
natural4c-roots natural4c-roots Said:

beautifulbrownies:

the products that work best on your hair sometimes depends on your ‘hair type’ like if you have looser (aka type 3) curls, or tighter (type 4) coils.

But the products that i would recommend are:

Shea moisture coconut and hibiscus line- these products are good for curly hair, the shampoo isn’t harsh so you don’t get that horrible dried out feeling that sometimes comes after shampooing.

Shea butter (raw): this stuff is amazing. I’m not sure about type 3 hair (because it’s quite oily and thick) but i’ve tried it and although the smell isn’t very nice, you can mix in some essential oils of your choice. 

kinky curly products: i’m yet to try this brand but a lot of people love their products and reviews are mostly positive. I really wanna try the knot today.

Mixed chicks: the brand may be geared towards ‘mixed chicks’ but it definitely is not exclusively for mixed people. The products are kind of expensive but people of all curly hair types seem to like them.

eco styler gel: this is popular in the natural hair community. some people are not very big fans of gel; but others find it useful for laying down edges, etc.

those are all i can think of atm; hope this helped :)
