Beauty Day Sunday FAIL: Coconut Milk Deep Conditioner

Hair Porn! My camera captured my texture beautifully!

I was so excited to try a new protein deep conditioner recipe, but based on my experience I’ll chalk this one up as an epic fail!

I started my wash day a little later in the day yesterday due to my thrifting trip.

I began my routine by:

Pre-Poo’ing: I sectioned my hair and to each section, I sprayed water and oiled my scalp and strands while lightly finger detangling. I covered my head with a plastic bag and tee shirt, then let my hair marinate for an hour.

DIY: Flax Seed Gel for Natural Hair

Happy Fierce Friday!

Last week, I blogged about the benefits of flax seeds for the hair.  Being the DIY-er I am, I decided to try to make some for myself. When I was relaxed, I never used gel simply because I thought it made the hair hard, flaky, and would dry the hair out, which would eventually mean breakage, so I’ve never used gel for the most part. Since I’ve started my transitioning journey, as my hair has grown longer, my styling options have increased. I can do high buns, which are an easy go to protective style for me, however, my fine hair makes it difficult to achieve a sleek bun without the addition of styling aids to combat the fuzzies, as I call them :).
