One of the challenges of natural hair is detangling in a very efficient way such that you do not lose much hair from breakage. Removing shed hairs and knots should be the only outcome. However, this is easier said than done. Techniques are invented and tested to make the detangling process as less traumatic as possible. As always, no two heads are the same and what works for someone may not exactly work for you but may still give you an idea on how to do it when working on your own hair. So, in the video below, I show you how I finger detangle my hair especially after removing a protective style. This is when there are more shed hairs than normal and the hair tends to lock together. They say our strands love each other so much such that they always want to hug. And if you keep them hugging for too long, separating them may break them. So that is when we need a very good slip product that can help the separation not to be so traumatic.
So I was tagged by Fanta of Aucurls Naturelle to do a 25 random facts about me sometime last year and trust me I recorded the video several times. Almost every time I would forget something and would have to do it again until I finally just had to post what I had actually said in the video. No one is going to give me marks for it so even if I leave tonnes of info, it’s okay. So here is the one that I think is most comprehensive and I hope it gives you a chance to know who Ruth Mafupa of Natural Sisters is. Don’t forget to thumbs up if you like the video and if you would like to get more videos from me direct to your inbox, why don’t you go ahead and subscribe. You know what, subscribing makes my effort worth while because I will do videos knowing you are waiting for them.
In this video I show you how I use African threading aka amaphondo aka mabhanzi to stretch my natural kinky hair.
I used Shea butter, Extra Virgin Olive oil 4 Hair to make my hair soft and retain moisture for longer. I don’t stretch my hair often but because of my thinner ends, I am doing it almost once a month now. I still stay away from heat still so that is why I prefer to use this technique to stretch my hair.
Many blessings to you and yours.
Hey folks. So I did this hairstyle some time back on stretched hair (used African threading to stretch my hair) and I thought I could share with you.
Thanks for coming by and many blessings to you and yours.
Hey folks. So I managed to record how I apply the Cherry Lola – Caramel treatment which is used as a first step in the MHM. This is my third time doing it and I absolutely love it. With my extremely frizzy crown, I really need a boost of moisture and this treatment is basically what it does to my hair. I really love it and plan to do it once a month or two from now on. The ingredients included in my treatment are not all that are mentioned on the MHM website so I would advise if you can, to get the whole batch of products. I just use what I have and don’t stress about what I don’t have. My mixture works just fine for me though.
Ingredients of my mix
In this video, I share with you how I undo my mini twists on my natural hair. I use a leave-in conditioner to add slip to my strands so that they can glide past each other without knotting and causing unnecessary breakage. The method I use here to take down my twists is fast and painless while moisturising my hair all at once.
I know it seems garlic has taken over everything around here. All I seem to talk about is garlic and garlic and some more garlic. Well because it is a wonderful vegetable and it really does work. I have used it on every wash day which is every week for the past 3 months and I can sure see some thickness and massive hair growth already. So why would I keep such good news to myself? Me being me, I want to shout about it on the roof top so that anyone who bothers to listen may know the wonders of garlic on hair growth. That aside, for it is not the purpose of this post. I just wanted to share with you this video on how I prepare my garlic and coconut oil scalp treatment and I also show you how I apply it to my hair. Don’t forget to subscribe and share the video with your friends if you find it useful
Many blessings to you and yours.
We had a fabulous time you guys this last weekend of the 22nd of February 2014. Yes I know, guilty as charged. I did not share with you guys on this blog that I was going to go to the very first Healthy Hair Indaba which was held here in Johannesburg. I should have hey? I however shared on Facebook and on Twitter. Anyway, I went and I really did enjoy myself. The things we discussed were so valuable. We went through quite a lot of stuff although there was not much time to go really deep on each topic. I tell you, there is never enough time when it comes to talking about hair. There were questions asked and the 5 organisers who were, Wissal, Carise, Aisha, Tendayi and Kavuli tried to answer most of them , with some help from the floor ofcourse. One can never know everything.
Hey loves. I hope I find you well. I did this updo hairstyle on my mini-twists some time back and it is by the way my go-to style whether I am wearing my hair loose or it is in braids or twists. This is how I wear my hair 90% of the time. Even though my hair is in twists which a low manipulation style on its own, I usually also wear it up so that I can also protect my ends. Remember the ends are the oldest part of the hair and tend be dryer and prone to split ends and breakage, rendering any long hair effort fruitless if they are not babied and taken care of properly. SO in this video, I take you step by step on how I create this updo with mini twists. Don’t forget to subscribe and thumbs up the video to show support. If you find my videos helpful, go on, share them on your social networks and spread the knowledge.
Till then, blessings to you and yours!
