Is it better to buy Dudu Osun black African soap or the the other one, in this case the one you have in a clear plastic wrap? Reply Ruth Mafupa 5 April 2017 at 13:06I am not sure the ingredients list of Dudu Osun black soap. However, the one in the clear plastic wrap is as it is made by Ghanaian women. The original black soap as the recipe has been passed on from generation to generation.

God bless you too MissT Reply Eloho 4 June 2014 at 10:45Hi, Ive carried my hair virgin since 1996 and it has been shoulder length since 99. Noticed that my hair breaks a lot since I move to Botswana from Nigeria so started search for sites that could give good suggestions on how to manage my hair better. Presently found two but my problem now is how to get natural products for hair care like jojobab oil shea butter and the likes please can u give suggestions. Thanks. Reply Ruth Mafupa 4 June 2014 at 12:22Dryer climates play havoc to our hair. Botswana is one dry country and you need to add moisture to your hair even more. You can email me and I will try and connect you with a Natural Moisture agent in Botswana for the Shea butter and also work something out for the other oils. Reply eloho 4 June 2014 at 12:36Thanks a plenty will send the email. Reply Millicent 15 July 2014 at 13:46Hi Natural Sisters, my name is Millicent Nakedi, Im 6 months old in the natural hair world, still don’t know how to take care of it, still don’t know why or how I came to this “natural” decision but I intend to love my hair and embrace my new natural me. what would be the thing to keep in my cupboard for my hair, something that will grow it, strengthen it, moisturize and beautify it? Reply Ruth Mafupa 16 July 2014 at 09:49🙂 Millicent. Thanks for writing in. For your hair care needs, my advice will be limited and not comprehensive because I do not know the state/structure of your hair and scalp at the moment. Otherwise let me say generally, get a good clarifying shampoo that you do not have to use regularly but as and when you need some proper cleansing of build up here and there. Black soap is my fav. Otherwise, you will need conditioner and more conditioner for washing (co-washing) and conditioning and sometimes deep conditioning. You will need something that has slip but does not cause build up. Tresseme Naturals is what I use. A leave in conditioner is also a must. One that has slip and is water based. Most are. I use motions leave in, or Ultimate Organics or Tresseme Naturals for this. Then you will need your oils. There is a wide variety here. Then butters or creams. Shea butter is what I use. But there is avocado butter and mango butter and mafura butter. Most things are going to be a trial and error to find out what suits your hair best. Keep track of what really works for your hair though so that you do not get lost in products frenzy with your hair not making any progress. Reply Neicy 24 October 2014 at 14:15I need help please with finding a place where I can buy flexi rods to curl my afro.

I am very frustrated because I feel my beauty is gone. Help me and tell me which shop should I go to or where to buy your stuff, I am working at Woodmead tell me if there is anything nearer.Kind Regards Anne Reply Ruth Mafupa 3 August 2015 at 08:49Hi Anne. We are very close to Woodmead. You can call 0742229804 or 0102059020 before coming to Unit A63 U Can Store. Corner Spartan Crescent and Impala. Sandton You can also buy online at http://www.natmoisture.co.za and we will deliver to you. Reply Nobe 18 August 2015 at 13:08Firstly, you have beautiful hair! It does not look natural at all! I have dreadlocks, for the past 2 years now. I feel like my hair is dry and I was using hair food just to keep it most 😉 May you please advise on the best way to keep my scalp moist and also since at times I style, which products I can use for my hairline. Thank you! Reply Ruth Mafupa 21 August 2015 at 10:01WEll thank you very much and indeed it is natural hair. As far as your scalp is concerned, I can tell you what I do. Besides washing my hair more frequently, I also do an oil rinse soon after washing my hair. This helps me to lock moisture on my scalp and keep it from dying too quickly. You can also spritz with an oil and water mixture or a store bought water based moisturising spray. That should help. For the hairline, try ordinary castor oil or the Jamaican Black Castor oil. You will also need to stay away from styles that pull your hair. I hope this helps.

Reply Charity Pawandiwa 26 September 2015 at 13:54Hi Ruth How are you thankyou for documenting your hair journey. I have been natural for ten years or so but i find that my hair breaks so ive been shoulder length for quite some time. By listening to some of your videos i am realising some of my mistakes and trying to correct them as I go. for now ive only been using coconut oil after washing or spraying with water and Ive been doing protein deep conditioners bi weekly. I also tried the baggy method and its been helping me a bit with moisture. my hair texture is super coily i think 4c . I would like to find out your experience with hair steaming. Does it help retain moisture any advice will be most welcome. Reply Ruth Mafupa 28 September 2015 at 09:30Hi Charity. It’s only a pleasure and I am glad to be of some help. That keeps me doing the things I do. 🙂 Well steaming does definitely help with moisture especially when deep conditioning.

Can I use your product for children Reply Ruth Mafupa 5 October 2015 at 08:18Thinner hair is one of the reasons I decided to go natural. As they improve these relaxers and introduce new formulas, the results may not be what you used to get. If you still need to relax your hair, try texlaxing which is not staying with the relaxer on your hair for too long for bone straight hair. Yes you can use Natural Moisture products on children with no problem. Reply Mogau 6 October 2015 at 19:41Hi Ruth.Can you please help me out? I’ve been doing some research on how to grow my 4c natural hair. I general suffer from dryness and have come across the LOC method to retain moisture. I tried the method, but I still find that my hair is prone to dryness which leads to breakage. For L I use a home-made spritz ( made of 2 tsp glycerine, 400ml aloe vera juice, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tsp castor oil and 1 drop of eucalyptus oil). I also tried using a store-bought leave-in conditioner but I had a struggle finding one. When I did find one (at Picknpay) it really did not help in moisturizing my hair. I think its because of the parabens in it (can you suggest good leave-in conditioners? and also where I can find them please). Then for O, I try to alternate between castor oil, olive oil and coconut oil. But generally I find that castor oil does a better job at locking moisture. For C I use a shea-butter mix.Nonetheless, my hair remains dry 🙁 until one hair-dresser suggested that I do a cholesterol treatment (at a salon) which will help with breakage and split-ends. What would be your advice concerning that?Looking forward to your response 🙂Kind regards Mogau Reply Ruth Mafupa 7 October 2015 at 07:55Hi Mogau. Firstly, I did not see any water in your spritzer. Water is the is the best moisturiser. Aloe Vera Juice and glycerin are both humectants. Unless you are in a very humid environment, these two actually draw water from your hair. So if to include them in your regimen, make sure it is a little. a tbs of aloe vera juice, half a tsp of glycerin should be fine. When it is dry in Johannesburg, I leave out glycerin altogether. When you seal moisture, make sure you do it in a down ward motion so that you also help to lay your cuticles down. If your hair is damaged, you may want to address that first and make sure you do protein treatments, eat right, drink a lot of water and and exercise. In this dry weather, you can also try the bagging method/greenhouse effect for your hair to retain more moisture. I did a post on it sometime back. Reply Mogau 26 October 2015 at 11:00Thank you.

Reply Violet Ledwaba 2 February 2017 at 18:01hi My name is Violet want to know where I can buy afro and twist comb.Thank you Reply Gift 6 March 2017 at 20:21Hi Ruth I love how your hair looks and the styles you have, thank you for this block it really is informative. I have natural hair for 2 and half years and it has grown to my shoulder, however it breaks and I am not using any natural hair products. I am constantly braiding my hair to try and avoid using chemicals on it. I have seen all the styles you have done and I also want to try them. Can you please advise which products to use for my natural hair and how to style my hair curly and products that will help with styling. I also need more understanding on the washing and moisturising as my have is a bit curly and soft for natural hair. I want to stop using heat blow drying on my hair but how do I get it dry? Reply Ruth Mafupa 7 March 2017 at 09:57Please check your ends and the length of your hair to find out why it is breaking. Breakage is normally due split ends and if that is not addressed, chances of stopping the breakage are slim. Deep condition your hair every time you wash it. This will help to keep it soft and moisturised for longer. When you moisturise, start with water because it is the only real moisturiser. then apply some cream, a leave-in conditioner preferably and then an oil or butter to seal moisture in your hair.
