3 Ways to Rock Your Natural Hair Under a Wig



Wigs are big business, and a great way to alter your style without altering your hair. They are also a protective style, as your own hair is protected under the wig from daily manipulation and breakage. It is also the perfect way to see if you like a particular style before fully committing to it. Now, there are a range of prices when it comes to wigs, and while some prefer high-end, there are some rather great ones that are reasonable. How much you choose to spend on one is completely up to the wearer, and typically is dependent upon how often it will be worn.

4 Ways to Use Rose Water for Damaged Hair


Humans and roses are involved in an enduring love affair. We love to use rose water, especially, in beauty products, perfumes, and even in cooking — mainly in Middle Eastern recipes. Rose water is made by steeping or steam-distilling rose petals in water in order to isolate the plant’s essential oils. Rose water is a natural but gentle astringent that can soothe irritated skin and scalp. It naturally conditions and moisturizers because it is rich in flavonoids and vitamins A, B3, C, D, and E. The sugars in the rose petals add to the rose water’s calming effects.

Rose water has been said to stabilize hair’s pH balance because its pH is similar to that of hair. Some say it can aid in repairing hair’s damaged porosity. It acts as an anti-inflammatory, and with its natural antiseptic properties, it can reduce or lessen dandruff caused by fungal infections. Some even believe it promotes hair growth. It is thought to have stimulating properties.

Does Virgin Hair Fertilizer for Hair Growth Work?




Many curlies who are transitioning have concerns about how much their hair is growing or not growing. This growth is extremely important, as is evidenced by those who keep natural hair journals and do weekly length checks; but don’t stress about length. If you take care of your curls, they will grow! Curlies who have done a big chop may be even more impatient as they attempt to get used to wearing a short style. As a result, Virgin Hair Fertilizer has gained popularity among naturals who are in the midst of a transition or dealing with hair loss.

Keep in mind that the rate at which a person’s hair grows and its thickness are generally a result of genetics, assuming that the hair is healthy; so there are no guaranteed methods to stimulating hair growth. But that doesn’t mean that hair fertilizer may not have benefits for some curlies. Is it worth the money and does it actually work? If so, what should you know before trying this product?

Natural Hair Growth Remedy: Black Seed Oil



What is Black Seed Oil?
According to Oil Health Benefits, Black Seed Oil has strong medicinal benefits when used as part of a regular regimen. This highly concentrated oil is made up of tiny black colored seeds that are commonly called "black cumin" but are scientifically called nigella sativa.

It is dissimilar from popular natural hair oils like coconut and olive oil because it is an essential oil. Natural lifestyle enthusiasts call this the "cure for everything except death."

When it is 100% pure, unrefined, and cold-pressed, black seed oil is sourced from Indian or Turkish seeds made up of powerful Nigellone, and Thymoquinone--two antihistamines.

The average hair growth rate is about half an inch every month, meaning we get about six inches of new growth every year. The reason your hair may seem like it’s not growing is because curly hair is so fragile that, if not properly taken care of, it may break at almost the same rate that it grows, if not more.
