No More Excuses! – 5 Ways To Sneak Deep Conditioning Into Your Busy Schedule

Product Review: Indian Hemp Masque
Listen, after you read this post you will be fresh out of excuses as to why you cannot deep condition your hair. Deep conditioning is vital for some of us who might be experiencing a little breakage, dry hair, over processed hair, colored hair or normal hair that needs a bit of vitality.


With that said deep conditioning your hair can be pretty time consuming, especially when you have lots of things to do during the weekdays and weekends.


For me I had to come up with something to not skip that important step in my hair care regimen. I tried a few methods to get deep conditioning treatments in, some of which I will share with you here.

Wash Day | Full Washing Regimen For Fine, Natural Hair



Join Now! The Wash Day Experience 
I actually look forward to my Wash Day!

Washing your hair does not have to be a daunting task, even for those who think it SHOULD take 3-4 hours on wash day. I surely do not believe that one bit. At most my actual wash day is pretty short:

1). Pre Poo Treatment - 30 minutes to overnight
2). Cleanse/Co Wash - 5 minutes
3). Protein Treatment - 10 minutes
4). Deep Conditioning - 30 minutes
5). Oil Rinse - 5 minutes
6). Air Dry Until Damp Hair - 30 minutes

My Last Weave Install Taught Me A Valuable Lesson

Hair Tips | Are Sew-In Weaves Bad For Your Hair?

Sometimes my kinks and coils can take so much energy to care for, especially when it’s so hot and humid in my part of the world. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my hair, but it can take a lot of maintenance and at times my lifestyle just gets  too busy for hair fuss.

I’ve been natural for 2.5 years and I love my natural hair, but there was a time I wanted something different, I wanted straight hair.


Now getting a relaxer was definitely out of the question and so was straightening because I didn’t want to deal with the possible hurt and stress of getting heat damage. That only left one option, I decided to try a sew-in weave with straight hair.

Hair Tips | 4 Invaluable Tips To Remember When Caring For Your Weave This Summer



Can someone pass me an ice-cold lemonade and a mobile air conditioning unit?


I'm burning up!!!!



I’m burning up and that is no joke. It has been extremely hot this Summer and the humidity is literally unbearable. What’s worse is that you still want to look cute despite the humidity, but your weave has other plans....
