Hey guys. In this post, I want to let you know about how to deal with scalp psoriasis, minimise flare ups and how to minimise hair loss. This is a follow up post to Scalp Psoriasis And Natural Hair. Let’s get right into it.
Hey guys! So, I was asked to do a review on T444Z when I attended the AIHE in Johannesburg on the 31st of August 2013. I am not big on basing my scalp and the DIY thing has gotten into me so much. So when I was asked to do the review, I kind of thought twice about it and when I read the ingredients, with the likes of Shea butter and other natural products in it, I ended up taking the offer. Wasn’t I glad to do a review on this wonderful product.
Honey as you may know, is a sweet food substance which is loaded with minerals and vitamins and as much as it is sweet to the taste, good for our bodies, it is also very good for our skin, scalp and hair when applied topically. When I did a “yoghurt and honey conditioner” for my hair and later posted on the benefits of yoghurt for our hair, I said I would also write on the benefits of honey so here goes.
Laden with minerals such as copper, iron, manganese, calcium, sodium, potassium and phosphorous also vitamin B and C, honey is very potent in reducing dandruff, stimulating the hair follicles to remedy baldness or excessive hair loss and moisturizing the scalp and hair to prevent breakage. This is so because these minerals and vitamins, although in small quantities, combined make honey a strong antioxidant, germicidal and fungicidal.
Hey. Does your hair seem stagnant and is the same length it was last year and the year last although you think you are doing the best you can possibly do to retain more length? You know what? I think your hair regimen is sabotaging your hard work. I know, I have been there before and it was not fun at all. I used to put effort in the wrong direction and as a result, my hair did not show any improvement for years until I started researching on how to grow my hair the right and healthy way. Below are twenty tips that I found out and most of which I use regularly in my hair growth journey.
This is the first of the healthy lifestyle challenge.
A healthy body is what supports healthy hair and nutrition tops the list for achieving this. There is a saying which goes, “We are what we eat.” It is vital to eat a balanced diet at all times and yes including those dreaded carbs and fats to keep your body functioning at its best.
Blacks Cannot Grow Their Hair Long. Right? WRONG. Here is news for you if you thought or have always heard that blacks cannot grow their hair past their shoulders. This is the 21st century and we now can grow our hair past our shoulders. Was driving from Woodmead Shopping Center this afternoon when I tuned on to 702 Talk radio and heard a person ask on Jenny Crwys-Williams question and answer section of her show. This person’s question was, “Why is it black Africans’ are not capable to grow their hair long unless it is in dread locks?”
If your hair is kinky like mine but you want to wear it straight, why not? There are so many people who have natural hair and prefer straight hair to coily hair who have managed to grow it healthy and to considerable length. Some it is because they are used to straight hair and others say it is easier to manage and it is not prone to breakage like kinky shrunken hair. I have friends who subject their hair to the flat iron heat and their hair is doing fine. Most have so much heat damage, (they prefer to call it heat trained hair) such that it does not shrink back even when shampooed but they are fine with that too as long as they are retaining length.
Some six years back when I tried to go natural, I was repeatedly told by friends and family that water and natural hair were sworn enemies. When I was relaxed, I used to wash my hair once every three weeks but when I became natural I began washing my hair only thrice a year because I had embraced this myth whole heartedly thinking I was doing my hair a favour. Yes I have just called it a myth for indeed it is.
