Washing Natural 4C Hair in Twists vs Braids.

Hey guys, I recently tried out something which I have now fully incorporated into my hair routine. Throughout my natural hair journey until now, I have always washed my hair in twists either after my deep conditioning process in which I usually twist the deep conditioner in or a week or two post deep-conditioning, when my hair has accumulated a little dirt and it itches.

Natural hair Product Faves'.

Finding the right products for your Natural hair may be a bit daunting. Maybe it's because of the different curl pattern on each individual head, or the fact that you can't test the product on your hair before buying (except you get sample products). Getting the right one is just a matter of trial and error. I have tried these products below and found them to be really really good for my hair, and they are in no particular order.

Benefits of Cucumber Water!

I recently discovered that I could sweeten my water with cucumber slices....Yes! cucumber. Before that I either chew it alone, eat in combination with other fruits or chop it in cubes and eat with Nigerian Jollof or white rice and stew. Cucumber has a lot of health benefits so for those who do not like the fruit itself, you can cut some slices in a glass of water, refrigerate for some time to infuse and drink up!

Here are some benefits↓↓

Taking Moringa seeds for Healthy Hair and more!

I remember back then in Pharmacy school when we memorize scientific names of numerous plants that have pharmaceutical benefits. It was a constant battle especially when Pharmacognosy exams were approaching. Any pharmacist in the house?๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ™Œ

One of such plants is Moringa Oleifera, the Moringa you always hear about. Everything about it is nutritional - the leaves, seed,  flower, stem even the roots. The Internet is packed with goodies about this plant. If you have this tree, you are the real MVP.
