Wash Day Routine, Natural Hair Regimen, Wash Day Routine Natural Hair, Wash Day Routine 4c Natural Hair - Longing4Length

For the past 4-6 weeks, I have used Bee Mine Products for every single wash day and they are definitely my go-to staples at the moment.  Not just the moisturizers, but the shampoo, the moisturizing conditioner, the curly butter, the juicy spritz...my hair is absolutely LOVING them!  I used the Bee-U-ti-Ful Moisturizing Deep Conditioner when it was first introduced years ago and although I can't be certain, I believe the owner has tweaked and … [Read more...]

Well, Optimum Care has done it again with an amazing heat protecting product in the Amla Legend Blow Out Elixir, which was sent to me for review purposes.  Long time L4L readers probably remember how much I loved the "red" Optimum Care Salon Collection line, the no-lye relaxer was my staple!  Another favorite was the heat polisher, which protected my hair and left it silky and shiny.  So I knew Optimum Care makes some great products and lovely … [Read more...]

Dandruff Versus Seborrheic Dermatitis | Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Review

Dandruff Versus Seborrheic Dermatitis Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Review

Before I jump into the review let me cover a few basics:  Dandruff versus seborrheic dermatitis.  Skin naturally has microorganisms living on it, including our scalp.  One such microbe is Malassezia globosa and in those with dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis, this fungus produces an enzyme (lipase) that breaks down the naturally occurring oil on the scalp (sebum).  This process releases an irritant known as oleic acid (free fatty acid). … [Read more...]

roller set on transitioning hair, rollerset transitioning hair, roller set transitioning hair, how to roller set transitioning hair

After removing my weave, I realized I wanted to WEAR my hair.  Yes, the struggle of all these different textures and lengths (as I've cut away breakage and relaxed hair) makes it difficult to maintain my transitioning hair while working out, but sometimes that struggle is completely worth it to just enjoy my hair! Even if it is just for a few days.  Since I was sent a set of products from Good Hair in a Bottle, including setting foam, I decided … [Read more...]
