What Is Going On With My Hair? – It’s Been A While

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

It has been a looong time since I’ve written something about my hair, not to mention post a blog, but here I am ready to chat a bit about what I have been doing with my natural curls.

Since I moved to New Mexico (eight years ago) my hair has not been happy. It’s been dry, it broke off, grew back a little, then broke off again. I learned I can not play in my hair, the way I played in my hair, when I lived in New York. I learned I can not wear an afro or twist-out without my curls becoming dry and brittle in a matter of minutes. I learned I have to always keep my hair in protective styles in order for it stay healthy. In a way it’s a bummer because I love curly afros and puffs but I’m doing what I gotta do at least for now, anyway.

My Hair Care Regiment:


It Works! Hair, Skin, Nails nourishing complex dietary supplements – 2 tablets every morning with breakfast. August will mark my one year anniversary taking these Japanese plant based vitamins. My hair is longer, stronger and even thicker. I am impressed and I can’t believe the results. I used to take a bunch of vitamins for hair growth and thicker hair and nothing really happened. It took it’s time growing and it never got thicker. Matter of fact I always thought products that promoted thicker hair was a gimmick because my hair never got thicker. But now, after taking these tablets for 10 months, I can honestly say my hair has finally gotten thicker and longer and healthier. I am truly in love.


I wash my hair every two weeks using Shea Moisture’s Baobab & Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity Protein-Free Shampoo. Now, since my hair is in protective styles 100 percent of the time, I even wash my hair in the actual protective style and yes it still gets clean. So for example, when I wear two-stand twists, and wash my hair, I keep the twists in. When I wear box braids, I keep the box braids in when I wash my hair.


After I wash my hair I use Shea Moisture’s Baobab & Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity-Free Conditioner. It brings moisture and softness immediately. After coloring my hair, and I will talk about that in a minute, I wash out the color using solely this product.

Leave-In Conditioner:

Thank goodness for leave-in conditioner. To help keep my curls from drying out, even with my hair in a protective style, I useĀ  Shea Moisture’s Baobab & Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity-Free Leave-In Conditioner every two to three days. If I don’t my hair becomes dry looking and dry feeling. It’s not cool. The leave-in conditioner compliments other products I use for moisture which I will mention right now.

Hair Grease:


Every two weeks I also color my gray with Naturtint permanent hair color in ebony/black that last only two weeks until I notice new growth in the color gray. I like this brand because it colors my hair, entirely, in about 30 minutes and my hair appears to be thicker and fuller.
