Winter natural body scrub for soft supple skin

the skin is the largest organ of the body and does most of the work to regulate our temperature and get rid of toxins through sweat.
we need to keep it clean and fresh and get rid of clogged up pores.
some of the best things to do is to scrub it at least 2x per month.
A good natural ingredient i use is pure honey and brown sugar.make sure the consistency is thick and can really ex foliate the skin properly.for the face you can add more honey so it is not too harsh.
do this every 2 weeks and you will love your skin even more and your body will be able to get rid of even more toxins.

How to get silky smooth lightweight hair for naturals and transitioners

i shampoo and deep condition my hair then rinse off with cool water.i part my hair into 4 sections and proceed to put a small amount of Avlon keracare creme press and Chi silk infusion.
I blowdry on high heat and straighten my hair on 400 degrees in small sections.this leaves my hair silky soft,smooth and bouncy.the results will last 5-7 days.the first picture is my before texture.8 months post relaxer and the rest of the hair is texlaxed with mild relaxer.i am transitioning to natural

Winter hair regimen

Keep it simple.hot oil once a week shampoo once a week and deep condition 1-2 times a week.
protective styling is your friend.styles like cornrows,braids e.t.c.make sure you moisturise your hair while in a protective style.
choose styles that will still allow easy maintenance like shampoo,condition.
my current regimen for the winter is prepoo,shampoo,deep condition once a week.i moisturise daily and oil my scalp 2 times a week just to combat the dryness.sometimes i deep condition 2 times a week depending on how my hair feels.

How to get fuller thicker hair

Its quite simple really.
deep conditioning has been a big factor in my thicker hair.it intensely moisturises your hair and keeps it strong and flexible.the more you do it the more thickness you will see.
i currently deep condition with steam 1-2 times a week but once a week is adequate.do what your hair tells you  if you need more moisture then do more deep conditioning treatments.
you also need to balance the moisturising deep conditioning treatment with protein treatment.
the rule of thumb is heavy protein treatment every 2 months and light weight protein treatment every 2-3 weeks.
minimum heat is essential if you want thicker healthier hair so air dry your hair more often and use heat protection if you need to use heat.
if you relax your hair try to stretch your relaxer to at least 12 weeks this will significantly reduce relaxer ovelapping.

My easy transitioning tips from texlax to natural

I have been thinking about transitioning for a while and i finally decided to do it.
my hair texture is 3c/4a and i am texlaxed.what i do weekly is prepoo with (molasses,honey and jojoba oil mixed) for 1 hour then i shampoo with a moisturising shampoo(creme of nature ultra moisturising) and deep condition with (silicon mix dc mixed with laoe vera juice) under a hair steamer for 20 minutes.
this makes detangling a breeze and super soft.
i apply my leave spray of (aphogee pro vitamin leave in mixed with aloe vera juice) and seal with emu oil.
i only seal my hair on wash days because my hair retains moisture really well due to the fact that i steam 2x per week.
once a week i will apply my mixture of mega tek and jbco on my scalp.
