My Hair, My Way

Archive for the ‘oils’ Category

Since I’ve covered the basics (shampooing, conditioning, moisturizing), I’m going to post some extra products (check out “My Regimen” section to see how I use them) that I use daily. One main thing I do when looking for products is reading the ingredients. I tend to stay away from products that contain a lot of alcohol, which clearly will dry the hair.

I love Cantu Shea Butter leave in conditioner and oil sheen.

This recently became a part of my regimen. However, my hair grew well without using this. I use it after I wash and condition my hair. It does add moisture to my hair (it can be used on dry hair as well). I’m going to stop using it for a while (I’ll apply it to my ends only), mainly because I prefer to use a leave in spray rather than cream. When I start wearing my natural hair out, I’ll use it again. My motto is “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. 

Cantu Shea Butter oil sheen does exactly what the label says. I started using this in January 08 and was amazed at how light the sheen was. I go through a can of this very fast. I spray it on my scalp daily, my natural hair and weave, and it can be used as a heat protectant. The shine is wonderful and you don’t have to spray a lot to see it either. I became a Shea Butter Oil lover because of this oil sheen. It smells lovely, might I add.

Oils

Posted on: July 17, 2008

Oils help seal in moisture. One can add it in hair grease, pre shampoo treatments, hot oil treatments, relaxers, and conditioners. Some can be used on the body as well.

Back in the day, I would always mix Castor oil into my hair grease. I adopted this from my aunt. Without knowing the reason for her doing that, I did noticed better hair growth. Today I’m a lover of Shea butter oils. I still use hair grease, mainly after a wash (when my hair seems to soak up moisture), but now I mix it with shea butter oils and the results are the same.

My last relaxer, I sealed my hair with olive oil. Doing that helps protects the hair against the chemicals, especially the ends. I even mixed a little olive oil in the relaxer. However, this slows down the relaxer process. If you want the hair straighter, you may want to let the relaxer sit a few minutes longer. (Please use good judgement).
