Tips for growing healthy hair

I often hear: “I really want to have long hair, it’s so beautiful”. Length is actually one of the last things you should worry about. As a matter of fact, long hair is only beautiful when your hair is happy. That being said, it would be a waste of money to invest in pills that support hair growth while ignoring signals you hair (and body) is trying to give you.

Approximately two years ago, in 2013 I did my ‘big’ chop. After the cut I have been trying to put many efforts in making my hair growth. I often ended up being fed up with my hair and pulling my hair into a big bun. At the beginning of 2015, I decided to treat my hair with the love it deserved. I was not necessarily focusing on making my hair grow: my focus swift to making my hair healthier.

Hairtexture discrimination, does it exist?

Since the start of 2015 I have been experimenting with my beautiful locks. I went through three phases:

  1. Acceptance of my hair texture
  2. Getting to know my hair
  3. Experimenting with my hair

Now I can finally say that I gained full confidence of my hair. In order to question society successfully I have been observing, observing and again observing. I have been reading articles and discussions about hair texture discrimination. So why would I not test whether this truly happens?

Review: Camille Rose Naturals Curlmaker

 

DSCN1446

A while ago, I finally got my hands on The Curlmaker by Camille Rose Naturals. I heard so many good things about this product I had to try it. Did I like it? Keep on reading!

 

The Curlmaker comes in a bottle with a pump, very easy packaging, of 355 ML (12oz.) I was surprised with the size because I expected to be far less than that. It is an expensive product around €30 and $22 in the United States. The Curlmaker has nice sweet scent to it with a thin watery consistency. It comes close to the Shea Moisture Curling Souffle consistency.

With this product, you really just need a dime size because that does the jon. If you use too much, it will weigh your hair down. In addition, this product makes my hair soft with very defined curls with hardly any frizz. At first, my hair becomes stiff after application and it dries up quickly. Later on, the spirals become very soft but still very defined.

Pro’s:

– Curl definition for days!
– None to very little frizz
– Nice scent
– Good amount of packaging.

 

Cons:
– Expensive

 

Other remarks:
– Weighs hair down easily. This can be a pro or a con. It will diminish shrinkage but for the fine and low density naturals this can weigh your hair down a lot!

 

Overall, I loved the Curlmaker and when the time comes that I need a new bottle, I will definitely repurchase. It is quite pricey, but a little goes a long way, so for me, it was worth all the pennies!
