Healthy Hair Tip #3- Wash me ( Wash Unit)

Hello All My Darling Divas!

First off  I hope everyone had a wonderful  Christmas and you enjoyed  your holiday with your family and/or loved one’s. So let’s get back down to business! I haven’t forgotten about the Healthy Hair Growth Challenge, as a matter of fact my hair has been growing all out of control, and with me getting back on point with these tips, yours will too. If you need to refresh your memory, below are all the Healthy Hair Tip’s that have been posted so far. It hasn’t been many, so if you need to play catch up that’s just fine.

Alright is everybody all caught up?? OK cool lets move forward! So in the last post we talked about building your product arsenal which means some product weapons to defeat the many enemies against our hair. I broke all the products of your Arsenal into 3 units: The Wash Unit, The Condition Unit, and The Moisture Unit. In this particular post, were going to discuss The Wash Unit. So enough of the intro, lets get to the good stuff.
The Wash Unit 
Washing your hair is essential of course because product can build up in your hair, and no growing will happen if the pores of your are all clogged up. Your hair also will have trouble being healthy and growing if it’s too clean, so we have to find a healthy balance of the cleanliness of our hair. Now I know’s alot of you just looked at the sentence and probably thought, “How can my hair be too clean and not grow?”  Well, by over cleansing you hair you are washing out all the natural oils, basically the good stuff that we want to keep on our scalp. You only want your shampoo to clean out all the dirt and product build up, so finding that  healthy balance is really important. I only shampoo my hair once a month, at the end of month, and it’s been working for me fine for about 2 years now. By washing it once a month, your washing out all the bad stuff that built up from the month, preparing a clean scalp for more products for the next month, and keeping all the healthy stuff in your hair. 
What shampoo is the best to use? I’m glad to asked! Now it doesn’t really matter which one you choose to use, it’s totally up to you and what works for you. Now since Shampoo’s come with Conditioners  I recommend that for every 1 bottle of shampoo you use, you buy 2 bottles of the matching Conditioner because you go through conditioner quicker than Shampoo, that way you can always have some handy. Make sure to also get the matching because products work well together, I mean that’s why they were created. But this is also just as suggestion, so keep on mixing your products if that tickles your fancy. 
Shampoo and Conditioner Suggestions
Shea Moisture Raw Shea butter Shampoo&Conditioner 

For color treated hair folk like me
Garnier Fructis Color Shield Shampoo& Conditioner
But of course, what ever you use it totally fine! Sorry that I couldn’t recommend  more, I haven’t really used many different ones, just these two sets. Hope this healthy hair tip has helped! And stay tuned for the next healthy hair tips!!!!


Quick Change for 2013

Hello Darling Diva’s!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas!! Just a quick change about the blog  that I wanted to share with everyone real quick. I’m going to be switching over to just text and picture post and making video’s only for tutorials. I figure if I do it that way then I can keep the blog up to date and not go missing for a long time.  Between school and work, it’s hard to sit down and actually make a video, so I figure by doing mostly text post, we can keep things moving up here. So I’m going to continue to do the Healthy Hair Tips for the Healthy Hair  Growth Challenge in post’s just like this one, and whenever I do a tutorial, then that will be a video. I don’t wanna loose anyone, and want to make sure that I stay relevant  so I figure that doing it this way will be better. If you have any comments or anything on this quick little change, hit me up on one of my stalker links below, and I will be sure to get back to ya! Love ya lot’s like tator tots ladies! And stay tuned because tomorrow I will be releasing 3 healthy hair tips to make up for lost time!
