Most Asked Question #1 🌀I probably get asked about my hair and length five to six times a day; as my snapchat family know (I love you guys so much) I don't really talk hair much, because I would so much rather have abbreviated biology lessons and snap stories on how enzymes work lol I'm a science nerd, what can I say? 😝 🌀But, I also don't want anyone feeling like I'm ignoring them when they ask questions..So today I'll share some things that I do for my hair 🌀I wash my hair about once a week, I use @sheamoisture4u Detox and Refresh Shampoo, and co-wash with @mydevacurl No-Poo once or twice a week🌀 🌀I don't use a brush or comb in my hair, as my fingers work just fine. I deep condition overnight as often as I can with either @sheamoisture4u anti-breakage masque or my own mask 1/8 cup each of Manuka honey, black seed oil, avocado oil, a banana, and 5 drops of essential oil🌀 🌀I cut my hair myself, and always have. I trim my bangs every two months, and my overall length every 3-6 months🌀 🌀before styling, I apply 3-4 droppers full of Colloidal silver (I use sovereign silver brand) to my scalp and massage for 60-90 seconds. This helps keep scalp bacteria free, also helps with dry hair. For anyone who colors their hair, colloidal silver is a must🌀 🌀I keep styling simple, Rotating between @sheamoisture4u strength and restore cream, and @mydevacurl Coconut Curl Cream. I like to use Moroccan oil to seal my ends, and @verbproducts ghost oil on my bangs (as they tend to get dry quicker)🌀 🌀I let air dry for around 30 minutes, and then blow dry on high, with low heat until 80% dry. Once my hair is dry, I like to take some @thebalmco glow serum (it's for your face, but my hair loves it too) and just apply to all over for added frizz control🌀 🌀I don't color my hair, my grey hair game is poppin! Dont be afraid of clarifying cleansers every so often; sometimes your scalp can't breathe with all of the build up! APCV rinses can also help your scalp breathe and push growth! 🌀 🌀Eating spinach, guava, sweet potatoes, cinnamon, Swiss chard, cabbage, watercress, figs, berries, cucumber, and celery just to name a few can also aide in hair growth🌀Love and light only, xx❤️✨
