I am home in Jamaica on vacation and it’s been fun fun fun.
Hey Curlies I started my castor Oil Challenge on August 4th and I will be doing it all through my vacation until October 4th. I will be using the Sunny Isle EXTRA DARK Jamaican Black Castor Oil, which was gifted to me but you can get this at your local hair store. Pretty much any 100% Castor Oil can be used. I will be using this every morning through out my scalp and on my edges. Lets see if this works, as I am a skeptic about products.
Ethnicurlies thank you all so much for coming out to my Expo and Meet up it was great to see you all looking so fab. So I have finally put together the details of the Castor/ Protective Style Challenge Oil Challenge Begins August 4, 2014 Ends October 4, 2014 Castor Oil Challenge : You can use Jamaican Black Castor oil. Dilute the oil if it is too thick, if you have locs or braids you can still participate. Decide which challenge level you are going to follow: Challenge Levels: Basic: Apply Castor Oil to a clean scalp 2-3 times per week. Advance: Apply Castor Oil …to your scalp 5-7 times per week. You must deep condition with a 1-2 tsp of your Castor Oil mixed in your deep conditioner and/or use it to seal your ends. Use an essential oil like lavender or Peppermint to dilute the scent if you have not bought a scented Castor oil. Rules: 1. Your Castor Oil MUST be 100%. 2. The Castor Oil must be applied to a clean scalp to allow better penetration so that your scalp can absorb all the nutrients from the oil. 3. One must report any changes, improvements, success in your hair/new growth. This will inspire others! 4. Please upload a photo of your hair progress at week 3, 6, 9 &12 . You can email it to me and I will Post Via Instagram & Facebook if you do not have access to those social media. Please use […]
Me and My Friends Kira & Celeste- Curls around the world, Jamaican, American-Tolian & Canadian-Nevisian I have been asked in the last 2 weeks why I am having a Natural hair Expo and also why do I have Natural hair. I am no hair expert I am a hair enthusiast, I have had my hair natural for some 14 years and counting and I think I have the experience and knowledge to speak about hair care and hair maintenance. The expo is to educate the naturalistas of the Caribbean to care, love and embrace their curls, coils and kinks. best practices and products to use as well as some super awesome homemade hair treatments
Transitioning Hair from straight hair to your curly kinks I have a few of these questions in my inbox and I have neglected to answer them in a timely manner. Let me first apologize for my tardiness I plead pregnancy. Hey Ceta! Congrats again it’s been a while girlfriend! Take care of both babies. So proud of you; I was doing some reading about your Ethnic Truth blog and I had a question every time I decide to go back natural I cant handle it I go back go the creamy Crack. Then I try braiding it for awhile but then my hair breaks, gets brittle and damaged. I want My hair Natural but is such a hard process and now I cant be bothered. What can I do!!!!??? -Y-
I have 4C hair, my hair is also coarse and usually VERY DRY. After I going natural I did a lot of research, yes after, I guess I was too excited to do anything but go natural that I didn’t read a stitch of literature. I learn a lot over the passed year as YouTube is my hair bible, its my go to app on my Ipad for styles and care.
