Product Review: Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo And Conditioner Duo

Throughout my entire healthy hair journey, I have not used a shampoo and conditioner of the same brand...I KNOW RIGHT?! That's absolutely...weird. I hardly use a shampoo, so I would purchase a cheap one to use rarely and put all my energy in purchasing conditioners and deep conditioning treatments of the same brand.

However...I went on vacation and forgot my shampoo and conditioner and saw the tiny bottle of Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo and Conditioner. Fate had me on this day...

Product Review: Scalp Invigorator From Vanity Planet

Scalp massaging is a great way to promote growth and to increase the blood circulation to make the roots stronger. This is one of the best ways to add to your hair care regimen for your healthy hair journey.

I have seen a lot of YouTubers advocate for this, so I was instantly intrigued! I have never used a scalp massager before, because I was always content with using my fingers for a scalp massage. I thought I would treat myself to the Scalp Invigorator From Vanity Planet, since the reviews were pretty good. Let's see how this goes:

This style is absolutely beautiful!!

I've been wanting to try this Freetress Gogo Curl pattern out for a long while now, which would definitely be out of my comfort zone from using Water Wave or Bohemian Braid for my crochet braid.

Healthy Hair Ingredient | Non-Boiling Water/Fermented Method Rice Water Rinse, Take 2

Non-Boiling Water/Fermented Method Rice Water Rinse

Rice water has definitely become part of my bi-weekly regimen for maintaining healthy hair by:
  • decreasing the surface friction to keep my hair smooth and soft
  • improving my hair elasticity
  • add natural sheen and volume to my hair
I have researched and have used the Boiling Rice Water Rinse Method, which has INOSITOL (CARB) that repairs damaged hair and protects hair from damage. Since I have fine natural hair, it tends to break easily if not cared for properly.

So here I am again confirming that the rice water rinse has been one of the best treatments to maintain my healthy hair. Instead of using my usual fermented water, I will try the Non-Boiling Water/Fermented Method Rice Water Rinse:

Product Review: Suave Naturals Daily Clarifying Shampoo

I have used ALAFFIA Authentic African Black Soap-Lavender Ylang Ylang, CURLS Creamy Curl Cleanser Sulfate-Free Shampoo, Herbal Essences Wild Naturals Rejuvenating Shampoo, Shea Moisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Shampoo, and other shampoos over the years. I would always give them away because they either had a stripping feeling to them or I just didn't need shampoo and would use Rhassoul Clay OR Mud Wash or Apple Cider Vinegar to naturally cleanse my hair. But this is my first time actually using a clarifying shampoo1

Let's see how this works out...
