My Current Hair Regimen

Moisturize hair according to LOC-method 

1x Hot oil treatment; Co-wash 
1x DIY Hair Growth mix; moisturizing shampoo; deep condition; LOC

1x Cleansing shampoo or ACV

I realized as I wrote this that I need to add more protein treatments to my regimen. I've tried Aphogee 2-step treatment and it worked great on my hair. Don't know why I haven't continued using it... I need to get back to it and do it every 6 weeks. 

Love Always,

Purchasing a new product

When I find a new product line, I do my research first.
Check out reviews on company websites, blogs and YouTube before buying.

I want a product that I know I will benefit from and not because it's getting a lot of hype.
Make sure you know what your hair likes and dislikes, it should be beneficial to your regiment.

I check if the company or the stores if they offer any samples for free.
Stores often give out samples to customers before they have the products for sale.

If not, I buy sample sizes, travel kits if available or the smallest container from the company directly.
Purchasing sample size, at a reasonable price, is recommended because it won't be waste of money if you happen to not like it.

Finally, I look for products that have a unique value. For instance I'm interested in organic hair products which is hard to find in Sweden
The unique value should be the factor that made you interested in the product in the first place.

I hope that you found this helpful!

Love Always,

NeoRoots- New Awareness

Before I went natural my hair was so unhealthy and I hardly knew what it looked or felt to wear it au naturale. I had a hard time seeing the beauty in my hair, sad but true, however that was my reality growing up. My hair always never left in its natural state long enough for me to appreciate it. And I don't blame my mom for that because she didn't know any better. 

I came across natural hair journey videos on YouTube of beautiful women who nurtured their beautiful kinks and curls, and wore it proudly and I was instantly inspired. 
Now I know that my inability to see the beauty in my hair stems from lack of knowledge and that's why it was easier to chemically treat it and keep it hidden. I came to realize that when I learn to nurture it, I inevitably start to love and appreciate my kinky and nappy roots. I'm definitely embracing this new awareness I have gained about my roots.

The video below features Kathleen Cleaver of the Black Panther Party explaining why they chose to wear their hair in its natural state. Although the Black Panthers were a political party, there were no political intent behind wearing afros except to promote natural beauty among black people. I feel like her words definitely hits home amongst the growing number of black women who are naturalistas.

Stay tuned for more, I have some exciting news coming by the end of this week. You don't want to miss it!

Love Always,
