This blog features products I love, like, dislike, and despise!!! I also have combined this blog with my Youtube page which is Shelle0729, and there my "Babe On A Budget" series has turned into a favorite!!! I also take a look at other naturals to see how their "Life In The Natural Lane" is going! I hope you all enjoy, and please free to leave comments & questions. ~Tiff
Bentonite clay is used in many commercial personal care products, including baby powder, eczema lotion, face creams, mud packs and sunburn lotions. Many individuals swear that soaking in a bath with bentonite clay added to the water will help remove toxins from the body. Acne sufferers might clear things up by applying a clay mask on the affected areas. Those with chronic headaches might find relief by placing a bentonite clay pack on the back of their necks for 20 minutes. Bentonite clay should never be allowed to dry on an open wound.
How I Used It
1 cup of Bentonite Clay 1/2 cup (roughly) of Apple Cider Vinegar Mixed until smooth Applied throughout hair and scalp Covered with plastic cap and left on hair for 30 minutes Rinsed with warm water for 10 minutes (this stuff is hard to get out so it will take longer than 10 minutes to remove...trust me...lol) I then conditioned my hair with
So my hair for today actually started last night... I got home and touched my hair for some reason I am not sure why but something told me to touch my hair. Hard. Dry. Hair. I sat there in shock because the day before I had cowashed and sealed my hair!!! So I took some Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in and Re-Two Strand Twisted it because my hair was sooo parched :(. I woke up this morning, and while still laying in bed (I was so lazy this morning... welll every morning) I felt that my hair was super moisturized!!! I was so happy I processed to unravel my twist. Once I was finished I went to the bathroom to see my results, and saw this....
Yes folks my hair looked a mess! It was 50% coily 50% jheri ... it wasn't the beautiful twist out I have grown to love, and expected... and that made me sad :(
I had to spring into action and come up with something!!! So very lightly damped my hair with water, and lightly coated my hair with some Shea Moisture Hair Milk. I then did two flat twist in the front of my hair on the left side and connected them at the ends
On the right side I did One flat twist
In the back I pulled the remaining hair into a messy bun.
I am going to apply a leave-in in my hair tonight, and leave it in over night so my hair so recover from whatever went wrong with my hair...
Soooo I had every intention on wearing my hair out today.... but.... my hair had other plans. So last night I did a co-wash using the Taliah Waajid Enhancing Herbal Conditioner (I will review that product at a later date), I also used the conditioner as my leave-in. I applied some EVOO to each twist then applied some Organics Root Stimulator Moisturizer to my hair. I then tied only my sides and edges down with my stain scarf. This morning when I saw my hair was still very damp. I did this twisty bun updo, and covered my oh so frizzy two strand twist with this brown knitted brown hair band.
Hopefully tomorrow these two strand twist won't be here anymore...lol.
Good morning all!!! So I am still rocking these chunky 2 strand twist. I decided to do a makeup tutorial this morning, instead of doing my hair...lol. So last night a dampened my hair with water, applied some olive oil to each twist, then I coated my hair with my EVOO & Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizer creamy cocktail, and and laid down my edges with Eco Styler Pink Gel and tied my hair up with a satin scarf . The only difference is today I put the twist in a knot and not a french roll.
Hair is starting to look very frizzy so this maybe the last day for this style
