Product Review: Sitrinillah Masque-Ulatra Moisturizing Deep Conditioner

Product Review: Sitrinillah Masque-Ulatra Moisturizing Deep Conditioner

This is IT! The holy grail conditioner. My search is over. I have been using this for a little over a month and I LOVE it!
It comes in a simple small white jar with a white and yellow label. The scent is very pleasant, light and smells of citrus. The consistency is thick, but not thick like a butter. A little goes a long long way and its priced quite well.
I first used the conditioner after shampooing with my godrej bar, I left it on my hair under a plastic cap without heat for one hour per the instructions. My hair felt so soft and after rinsing so very very very moisturized! The next week I used the conditioner on dry hair before shampooing and it worked just a well! Who new! I also tried it with heat, went under the dryer for thirty minutes and then sat around another thirty before rinsing. My hair was not as moisturized, but it still did the job.
I tried using this conditioner in three different ways and I have to say the product works best WITHOUT heat. So for you ladies that do not have a bonnet dryer, this product is perfect for your needs.
So I will continue to buy this product and use it WITHOUT heat because it works so well without it. Best part, no mineral oil and no cones. Its a keeper! I have finally replaced my beloved Organic Root Stimulator Replenishing Conditioner!

My Regimen Explained: Protein Conditioner

My Regimen Explained: Protein Conditioner

This is another simple aspect of my regimen. I do necessary to ensure that my hair remains strong. Only is my hair breaks easily or sheds too much. If I use heat I will use the protein treatment the wash the week after I use heat. This ensures that any breakdown in strength that occurs through heat usage is restored.
I use Elucence Extended Moisture Repair Treatment for my protein treatments. It uses wheat protein and plant polysaccharides to strengthen and moisturize the hair.
I do not use heat often, so I don’t worry about doing hard protein treatments. My hair is strong and does not lose its strength very fast, which I contribute to using coconut oil regularly as well as faithfully doing a protein treatment once a month (in place of the co-wash conditioner in my regimen).
Henna also strengthens my hair in a more artificial way, it does not repair the actual keratin bonds in the hair, but it does temporarily strengthens the hair. In an attempt to simplify my regimen and to just cut out the mess I have stopped using henna, but I still recommend it to those who want to use it.

Experiment: GNC Hair, Skin & Nails Program

Experiment: GNC Hair, Skin & Nails Program

Experiment: GNC Hair, Skin & Nails Program

I usually take a multi-vitamin, and occasionally I add some type of hair supplement, usually GNC Hair Skin and Nails Vitamin’s. Well, this time I wanted to try the Program to see if that makes any difference. The program has the Hair, Skin, and Nails vitamin’s, plus Evening Primrose Oil and an Advanced Collagen Formula (that includes amino acids). The additional vitmain’s are meant to improve the skin (acne and clearing) and improve the elasticity of the hair. My new growth is currently 2 & 1/2 Inches, and I have a two month supply (thanks to BOGO) of the program, so I will update this experiment after 30, 60 and 90 days. I am going to use the program for the full 30 days as directed, then I will use my regular multi for a month and then use the program again for a total of 90 days. Then I will continue to take my multivitamin as usual,, that will more than likely take care of my extra supplement for the year, the rest of the year I will regularly take a multi-vitamin.

Product Review: Bee Mine Botanical Shampoo and Tropic Isle Jamaican Coconut Black Castor Oil

Product Review: Bee Mine Botanical Shampoo and Tropic Isle Jamaican Coconut Black Castor Oil

Bee Mine Botanical Nourishing Shampoo
Ingredients:
Distilled water, decyl glucoside and sodium lauroyl lactylate, calendula extract, lemon grass extract, rosemary extract, lavendar extract, rose extract, nettle extract, and chamomile extract, panthenol, fragrance
Silicone-free, SLS-free/Paraben-free
Review:
As you know I have tried soooo many Bee Mine products and I am in favor of the line as a whole. So, of course when I saw this shampoo I had to try it, and I can say that I like it better than the Peppermint Shampoo. This shampoo actually cleans the hair while still imparting moisture into the hair. It is comparable with Matrix Biolage Colorcaretherapie conditioner, but the Biolage foams up more. However, I can say this shampoo foams up more than the other Bee Mine liquid shampoo and definitely gets the hair cleaner. If I was still using products offline, I would definitely use this shampoo. It really does a fantastic job getting the hair clean while at the same time moisturizing your hair. Even shampooing more than once will not get rid of the feeling of moisturized hair. As is becoming standard with Bee Mine, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! The perfumy smell is quite overwhelming, but if you can get past that, you will really enjoy this shampoo.
I was actually given this product, but it can be purchased from the Bee Mine Products website.
Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Organic Coconut Black Castor Oil Hair & Skin Treatment
Ingredients:
Jamaican Black Castor Oil & proprietary blend of each virgin coconut oil
This product interested me because it combines two of my favorite oils. I have been using Castor Oil since the beginning of my hair journey, back when I was natural, and Coconut oil has been a part of my regimen since I discovered it years ago. These two oils never leave my rotation. So, when I saw that a company combined them and saved me the trouble, I had to try the product. I am very very happy with this oil combination.
I have used this as a hot oil treatment, to seal my leave-in, an add-in to my deep conditioner, to oil my scalp, as a hair refresher and to seal in my moisturizer these past couple of weeks. Each time I used this my hair felt soft and supple, and my scalp was more than happy. For some reason, this combination of oils is kismet. I will continue to buy this combo instead of buying JBCO alone and use to this to oil my scap and to seal. This product solidifies at room temperature, but if you just run the bottle under warm water, it melts easily.
I bought this product form Ayurnatural beauty with my own money.Two great finds! I enjoyed the Bee Mine shampoo, but I still like the Biolage shampoo best because it foams up more with less product and I will continue to buy the Coco/Castor Oil instead of JBCO alone.

Long Term Stretching: Taming New Growth

Long Term Stretching: Taming New Growth

The most difficult part of stretching is keeping your new growth happy while not causing breakage and still keeping your hair looking decent. Below are four simple steps you can use to make your new growth manageable while preventing breakage and enjoying your hair.
Leave-In Conditioner
Of course you already use a leave-in conditioner, but it becomes all the more important when you have a considerable amount of new growth. Some form of spray leave-in is actually more beneficial because you can ensure that you are getting to the bottom of your new growth by squirting the product through your hair and all of the way down close to the scalp. Doing so makes it easier to detangle your hair and aids in keeping the new growth moisturized. My favorite product for this purpose is off course Taliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier.

Oil
Oiling your scalp can really be your friend when stretching. DO NOT USE GREASE TO OIL YOUR SCALP, but using other oils can really keep your new growth happy. Oiling my scalp really keeps my new new growth from tangling as much and keeps it softer than when I do not. I oil my scalp after washing once my hair has dried, I do not oil my scalp again until after my next wash. My favorite and most effective oils for this purpose are Castor and Coconut oil.

Protein Treatments
Use a hard protein treatment once every two months to keep your line of demarcation strong. Regularly using a light protein is no substitute for a hard protein treatment once you new growth reaches the 3-4 inch mark. Your relaxed hair is pretty heavy and the point where the two textures meet is more inclined to break as a result. Keeping your hair strong will also aid in detangling because your hair will not be nearly as fragile. My favorite products for a hard protein treatment are the Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment and Nexxus Emergencee.

Clip Split Ends
You may think to yourself, huh? Your relaxed hair and new growth are already very different, but when you add split ends, you get a detangling NIGHTMARE! When those split ends snag every time you comb down your hair shaft, things just go plain wrong, regardless of the fact that you washed your hair in sections.

Your new growth is not nearly as fragile as the length of your hair, but it can cause you so much grief if you do not know what to do with it, believe me when the steps above make things a lot simpler!

Hair Growth Cycle

Hair Growth Cycle

Do you know how your hair reacts to the seasons through out the year? Everyone has a resting period, where their hair does not grow. A period of time where they see slow growth and instead an increase in thickness, and everyone gets a growth spurt.
Learning when these things happen can help maximize the potential for retaining the length and thickness of your hair with every season. Knowing this ensures that I am never disappointed with my growth because I know when it will occur. My growth cylce goes like this:
Winter=Increase in thickness
Spring=Growth increase
Summer=Growth spurt
Fall=Resting
In the Winter I usually wear my hair in big-hair friendly styles (like braid outs, twist outs, bun with two sections, etc.). I also detangle once or twice a week. I am not concerned about thining my hair with excess combing because it is always soo big in the winter. My hair is drier during this season due to the cold, so I try to use butters as they are heavier than just oil.
In Spring I usually enjoy my hair for a bit with rollersets or whatever style hits my fancy. I know that I will have a good amount of new growth, but not so much that I have to stick to textured styles only. This is the season where I can experiment with styles and not worry about damaging my hair.
In the Summer my new growth hits with a vengence. I amp up my deep conditioning and co-washing and I usually stick with textured styles. I religiously do protein treatments to ensure that there is no breakage at the demarcation line and I do not use a lot of prouct. Usually this stretch consists solely of braid-outs, twist-outs, bantu knot-outs in different forms. I try to finger detangle daily to ensure that on my wash days the detangling process is not too bad. I am as gentle as possible when detangling, (oftentimes separating each hair strand from the other before detangling) to ensure breakage does not occur due to the two fighting textures.
In Fall I turn back to protective styling. Since my hair is resting and is not growing at all, I try to protect all the length and thickness that I have retained that year by protective styling. I ensure that I take my vitamins daily and drink plenty of water, changing my focus from external to internal.
Knowing my hair tendencies is truly the best way to retain length and optimize growth. Each season I truly just respond to what my hair needs, but I keep these observations in mind when making decisions.

Update

Update

So I am 8 weeks post and I just realized that I have been bunning it like a mad woman and I did not even realize it. I have not even used direct heat and I do not miss it!
As a result, I am putting myself on a no heat challenge for the year! I also plan to only do wet hair length checks this year. At the end of the year I hope to be pleasantly surprised by my growth. This will last December 23, 2009-December 23, 2010. That is right, a whole year.
This is going to be difficult and I must stay strong. No rollersets, no blowdrying and no flat ironing, but most everything else goes. I give myself no passes.
I am sure there will be inspiration threads galore throughout this year.
With me luck!
