I’m glad this article was written, since it’s sparking some very necessary conversation. It was definitely poorly written, though. Weight does not = health. And the most important point should be the lack of access to these healthy resources + information, within our urban communities. Her personal opinions were all over the place. The article should’ve been more objective and scientifically based.
It depends on the style I choose to rock. When I come out of the shower with my hair dripping wet, it hits a little below the waist line. As soon as I apply product for a wash & go, and it air dries? It shrinks all the way up to my shoulder! But when I rock a braid out, people are amazed at the difference. Like two different heads of hair! Even the texture! I’m actually gonna try and do a photoset soon so you guys could check out the difference.
Screw what’s politically correct on overweight children and adults. Diabetes is at an all-time high and plaguing African American and Latino communities. Jennifer Hudson, Raven Simone, Mo’Nique and Marsha Ambrosious are all celebrities…
Hey Fran!!! I've never considered a conditioner only cleansing regimen, but am willing to try anything to find what my hair responds well to. By going this route, is there ever a need for deep conditioning treatments from time to time? :)
Absolutely! That was just the cleansing regimen. Your hair needs as much moisture as it can possibly get. I deep condition my hair once a week, no exceptions, under the Huetiful Hair Steamer. Can be purchased here: http://www.behuetiful.com/store/Steamer/Huetiful-Hair-Steamer/prod_2.html The steam helps your deep conditioner penetrate A LOT further into the hair strand, making a world of a difference. I can attribute a lot of my improved strand strength, longer length, curl definition and overall shine to this steamer.
My fav deep conditioners, of the moment, are the Deep Treatment Masque or the Purification Masque (good for scalp buildup), both by Shea Moisture. I also love the GPB by Aubrey Organics and the Jessicurl Weekly. Hope that helps!
P.S. If you purchase the steamer, add 2 drops of tea tree oil to the water for an incredible scalp treatment! As well as 2 drops of Rosemary essential oil for extra shine.
a google search box, right under the flag counter. That way you can type “deep conditioner” (or whatever you’re looking for) and all of my relevant posts will pop up in the customized Hey Fran Hey search engine. Cool?
Heyfranhey, nothing to to ask. Love the blog, love the recipes and health stuff. If I knew you irl I'd say heyfranhey everytime I wanted your attention. Rolls off the tongue like lmnop. lol Anyway, much success to you.
That’s how I got the name. It’s what my little cousin says whenever she sees me…lol. Thanks for the love <3 <3
This is about a good conditioner for my 4b 4c hair type.What do you think would help moisturize my hair ?
My fav conditioners for co-washing would be the Shea Moisture ones. The Raw Shea Butter or the Yucca & Baobab. You can also try the White Camellia or GPB by Aubrey Organics. Kinky Curly Knot Today is dope, too! All are incredibly healthy and moisturizing.
If you’re referring to a leave-in conditioner for your hair type, i’d say to try the Kinky Curly Curling Custard. That product is ideal if you’re into lots of definition and hold. If you’re into a lighter hold with more volume, try the Curl Souffle by Curls or the Curly Whip by Hair Rules.
Let me know what you think if you try any of those suggestions <3
does conditioner do any type of permanent help to brittle hair? or is it only temporary until you wash it out?
It’s temporary when you’re using the cheaper brands. Invest in one loaded with all natural ingredients and nutrients, use it for a long period of time, and you’ll notice a major difference in that brittle hair. Make sure you’re finger detangling, too. That will minimize frizz and breakage. A great one is the Raw Shea Butter conditioner by Shea Moisture. Thick, rich, healthy and affordable. $9.99 at Target, Duane Reade or Walgreens.
If you’re asking about leave-in conditioners, the ones with the natural ingredients will be the ones to restore your hair’s health while simultaneously providing style hold.
you're awesome. I know it's random, but I just felt like saying it because it's true. The way you answer everyone's questions and stuff in such a clear way. you're filled with so much knowledge. It's crazy! lol.
lol!!! Thank you!!! I have a slight obsession with natural hair :p
hello just wondering about your opinion on Organic Roots Stimulator's Nautures Shine. It states that it's a unique blend of several oils including coconut,soybean, and kukui nut. Someone bought this spray for me and I'm curious about how my natural hair twa will react to it. I am having an issue keeping moisture. I know that's due to my hair type. Which is very thick, kinky, coily.
That product line is loaded with artificial chemicals. You should definitely use something with way healthier ingredients, especially if your hair is thick and lacking in moisture. Why not look into the moisturizers by Qhemet Biologics? My fav is the Amla & Olive! Not too greasy but thick enough to provide just the right amount of moisture for the thicker textures.
FRAN! I want to say I absolutely LOVE everything about YOU and your tumblr. You've inspired me a ton. I saw you mention aloe vera juice often to your inquirers, and I went to the Aubrey Organics site, but I couldn't figure out which aloe product to buy. (Hopes this isn't a totally idiotic question HAHA)
Awww! I love you way more <3
Def not an idiotic question. There are a million different products on that site. Here’s an amazon link to the exact one I use: http://tinyurl.com/3doeazl
