Have you been thinking about growing your hair this year? Are you struggling to grow it out? Would you like a solution to that effect? If your answer is yes, stay tuned because this post is for you.
When I started my natural hair journey, it seemed impossible that my hair would ever grow. It was long, yes, but it was just always at the same level. Miss Fro had undergone so much pressure with tight braids, the constant (hot) blow dry and use of sulfate full shampoos. Where was I going to start and end? was there a solution to my never ending problem?
I struggled to find really good products to take care of my hair, because the products were few in the Kenyan market. I wanted to grow my hair out so badly that I was willing to do anything just to find the right product and solution. So when I ventured into the market and found a hair growth oil by Blends of Nature, I had to try it.
Here is the thing about natural products: They are so good for both hair and scalp and they actually work because they stimulate the hair follicles, hence generating new growth. Patience also pays when it comes to using the products, but with constant use you will see results.
Blends of Nature have this hair growth solution that has an amazing array of oils. They include: Shea oil, Coconut oil, Black seed oil and Castor oil. Let’s look at the different properties of each oil.
1. Shea Oil
Shea oil is Shea butter that has been melted and it still has the same benefits as the butter. It is good for moisturizing the skin (scalp) and can be used as a sealant as it is thick in nature. It can also be used before blow drying the hair because it acts as a protectant, shielding your hair from the dangers of heat damage.
Using it as a prepoo (pre shampoo) would also be beneficial as it will soften the hair and coat the strands ensuring that they are not stripped of any oils during the washing and shampooing process.
2. Coconut Oil
This oil has been a favourite among naturalistas for the longest time EVER!! I personally use it as a prepoo, on its own. When mixed with other oils it works wonders for my hair as it is mixed in small amounts. Coconut oil works nicely on my mane, so it is always finding its way in my regimen.
Coconut oil has healing properties that help aid with taking care of insect bites, dandruff and even lice. So go ahead and grab your bottle. It promotes a healthy scalp as when massaged on the scalp it helps rejuvenate the hair follicles, prompting them to ‘release’ new hair. It is also used to coat the strands when undoing a braid out, twist out or flat twist out, as it will control frizz.
3. Black Seed oil
This oil is very good for healing the scalp from all conditions that tend to irritate it. It is anti inflammatory and medicinal. This oil helps to fight against fungal infections and other scalp related issues. Just mix some with a carrier oil and apply it on the scalp, massaging it in.
Black seed oil also has the capacity to make hair dark, preventing premature greying. Apart from that, you know the tint one gets from years of having constantly blow dried hair? this oil helps to get rid of that. My mane had turned brown and when I started using this mixture, it slowly returned my hair colour.
4. Black Castor Oil
This is also a favourite among naturalistas. It is a thick oil that can’t be used on its own, hence has to be mixed with a carrier oil. Castor oil helps with promoting hair growth. A little goes a long way, so if you use castor oil, mix it proportionately so as to avoid it causing dryness to your hair and scalp.
It is very good for the hair line as well. when you apply it together with your favourite carrier oil, it will stimulate your hair follicles and cause the hair to grow. Apply on the scalp at least three times a week for best results.
The combination of all these oils in one bottle is a life saver, because with this 4-in-1 concoction you can do multiple things and achieve the goal you intend- HAIR GROWTH. So go ahead and pick this bottle of goodness, it will do your hair and scalp some good.
I use it during my prepoo sessions and also mid week when re’moisturizing the scalp.
I attempted to do twists a few weeks ago and this oil was my go to. When I finally undid the twists two weeks later, my hair still had some oil in it so I really didn’t need to prepoo. Excessively dry hair would benefit from this combo (I know my hair is, because of its high porosity, as it tends to lose moisture very quickly).
