Did you know that exercise stimulates hair growth?

Today marks the third day of me working out! Waist band and all. Tryna get that hourglass figure.

I think I am getting the hang of it. 😉 And yes, ladies! Exercise, paired with tons of water and eating right truly promotes hair growth.

Sweat is your body’s natural moisturizer, therefore your natural hair benefits from a good 30 minute workout at least three times a week.

Im on my way to healthy body and hair! Share your thoughts and comments below.

Do you know your porosity level?

What is hair porosity? Porosity is basically your hairs ability to retain mositure and absorb water and can be measured many different ways. One of the easiest ways you can measure your porosity level at home is by conducting a “Float test.”

1. Simply take a few strands of hair, preferably freshly washed hair, and place the strands in a glass bowl of room temperature water.

2. If the strand/strands sink to the bottom then you have high porosity hair. If the strand/strands float then you have low porosity hair.

So… you know your hair’s porosity level. What next?

Being aware of your hair’s porosity level helps determine not only what products you should use, but it helps you decide what methods of sealing and maintaining moisture you should include in your regimine.

I am going to conduct a porosity test tonight on my hair and make a separate post tomorrow. I haven’t done a test in a few months, so I am excited about the results!

Do you know your hairs porosity levels? How important is porosity? Have you done a float test?

Curly girls! I need your advice!

Alright, Naturals.

I have had a partial sew in installed in this “Beautiful mane” of mine for about three weeks now. So far, its been great. Its long, flowy, I have been whipping my hair back and forth in peoples faces and switching, and so far its great. BUT. I do have one thing to say: I am getting tired of it. So tired of it, yall.

My scalp itches, it feels like I am wearing a hat, and quite frankly… I miss my kinks and coils. Frizziness, dryness, and all. 😦

The dilemma I have is this: I wanted a weave for a trip I took to Florida. So, I got my weave. I did it, I got it, I loved it, I scratched my itch, and now I want it O-U-T. But naturals let me tell you… Yall KNOW weave is not cheap! Part of me really wants to get my return on investment.

So I come to you for advice! Waving my white flag!

What should I do? Should I keep it in for at LEAST another month, or should I kiss this hat goodbye?

Help a sistah’ out. Post your comments and share your thoughts below. Thanks guys!
