Increase your hair growth rate by doing a New Moon Phase trim (Oct)

1 Corinthians 1:27
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

New Moon Phase trimming
The process of trimming your hair during certain high energy times of the month, depending upon the position of the moon.
It is all about good energy. Good energy attracts more good energy. So if you are not in a positive mindset, do not attempt a New Moon Phase trim. Pray, forgive, release all negative feelings, if you want to attract good positive energy. 

October trim dates for increase
24th(super high energy day)

What, you've never heard of Toni Daley?

 Toni Daley is a natural sister on the move!
Modeling the Toni Wig! Get it here!

Toni Daley is a wig designer, jewelry designer, youtuber, daughter and wife!

I became familiar with Toni Daley through her youtube channel. I enjoy her natural hair tutorials, product reviews and the way she highlights black owned businesses. In addition to her main channel she also vlogs with her wonderful supportive husband and precious dog Marley. 

You must visit her website Toni, and check out her fabulous natural looking wigs. She has two great sellers. The Gabe wig and the Toni Half wig. She also has a large selection of beautiful afrocentric handcrafted earrings at a great price.
The Toni Half Wig is a top seller, order now it sells out fast!

Let's learn more about this fabulous natural sister!

CoilyQueensRock: Toni you are natural, right? 
Toni: Yes, I am 100% natural since 2007.

CQR: What prompted you to go natural?
Toni:   After deciding not to relax my hair anymore I decided to try braids.  I fell in love with braided styles and experimented with box braids, microbraids, curly braids, human hair braids, cornrows, you name it...I tried it.  I wore braids for about 2 years straight.  When I decided to give the braids a break I was shocked at the thick head of natural afro textured hair I had grown and fell in love with my new found texture.

CQR: What has been your biggest challenge being natural?
Toni:  I really don't have much challenges being natural especially now that there are so many more options available for us in terms of both products and styling.

CQR: What has been your biggest reward from being natural?
Toni:  My biggest reward is definitely the platform I've built online and being able to inspire thousands of women to rock the hair they were born with and letting little girls know that they are beautiful just the way they are. 

CQR:  Do you have specific natural hair goals? 
Toni:   My hair goals really haven't changed since going natural.  Relaxed or natural my goals have always been to have a head full of healthy hair and to have fun with my styles.

CQR: I have enjoyed subscribing to you on youtube for over a year, it seems. How long have you been on youtube?
Toni:   I've happily been making videos on YouTube for about 5 years now.

CQR: How long have you had a passion for designing earrings?
Toni:  When I fell in love with being natural I really wanted to be able to express that through my clothing and accessories as most naturals do.  I started purchasing natural hair t-shirts but what I really wanted a pair of afro pick earrings.  Back in '07 there wasn't the market that there was now and I just honestly couldn't find I decided to make them and that's how I got started.

You won't believe the price! Makes a great gift order here

CQR: Your Toni Wig and Gabe wig is on point and fabulous. What inspired you to start designing wigs?
Toni:  I've always been a fan of extensions, particularly half wigs when I was relaxed.  That didn't change when I went natural but it did become harder to find half wigs that blended with my own natural hair.  I always tend to think that if it's a problem for me, it must be a problem for other women out there so I decided to create my own and introduce them onto my site.  I started with the Toni wig which mimics my own 4c hair.  After that I collaborated with one of my favourite YouTubers Gabrielle of TheGabeFix to create a wig which mimics her infamous twist outs on 4b hair.  I introduced a new style 3 months ago called 'The Big Chop' wig which is a short natural hair wig in the popular tapered cut style.  I hope to have new styles in the future as well. 

CQR: Can we expect any new wig designs in the near future?
Toni:  I introduced a new style 3 months ago called 'The Big Chop' wig which is a short natural hair wig in the popular tapered cut style.  I hope to have new styles in the future as well. 
The Big Chop Wig! Order here!

CQR: I love your earrings and accessories. What can we expect from for this Fall or next Spring?
Toni: I'm an artist at heart and love to create so you can always be on the look out for new designs on my site!  This fall you can expect new artwork, earring designs, and wig colour options!

Infinite earrings get them here!

3 day Moisture Infusion Treatment for the busy woman

What you will need:
Organic Apple cider vinegar
Carmel-tini Hair Treatment
4 plastic conditioning caps
Knit hat, scarf or bonnet
Good quality leave in conditioner
A good quality natural oil. Select one: castor oil, avocado oil or coconut oil

Night before day one:
Carmel-tini Hair Treatment. If you are dealing with knots and tangles you want to do a pre poo treatment, with a good quality product. Apply carmel-tini over hair/scalp, cover with a plastic cap overnight. 

When you need to save time, apply the Carmel-tini hair treatment, cover with a plastic cap and let it sit on hair for 3 hours. Proceed with shampoo routine.

More information on the Carmel-tini Hair treatment, by Terra Veda Organix here.
Organic apple cider vinegar

Day one:
Shampoo and deep condition your hair.
Rinse deep conditioner out with cool water.
With hair soaking wet,  pour an ACV rinse over your hair.
Let it sit for 3 minutes.
Rinse out with cool water.
Apply leave in conditioner and oils.
Proceed with setting your hair.
Self heating conditioning cap

At bedtime cover hair with plastic conditioning cap, followed by a knit hat or scarf.
Remove first thing in the  morning, to allow hair to dry.
This means you may want to get up 20 minutes earlier to allot for drying time.
Hair should be completely dry before styling, if you are wearing twist outs or braids outs.

Days two and three:
You will baggy you hair each night for the next two nights in a row.
Applying a  leave in conditioner and oil before each baggy treatment.
TIP: store your leave in conditioner in the refrigerator and apply it to your hair cold. The cold product will help the cuticle to lay flatter and lock in more moisture.

On day 4 you should notice your hair  staying hydrated longer. If you find that your hair is still getting dry and hard before the end of the day, then proceed to  the  9 day moisture therapy treatment. 

Please keep in mind, that your hair has been dehydrated for a long time, so for some people it will take several days or weeks to get the hair to hold moisture.

One awesome product with five functions

You must try the Banana Slip Detangler by Terra Veda Organix!

Light weight multi purpose detangler
I recently had the pleasure of using this wonderful product on my hair while removing some of my braids. Upon removing a braid, I would apply some of the banana slip detangler. I let the banana slip detangler sit on the hair for a minute, then I detangled my hair with ease. The moisture from this detangler kept me from losing  hair due to dryness, which is common when you wear extensions.

Not only does this product provide good slip but it is PH balanced and silicone free. The banana slip makes a great light weight leave in conditioner. If you rather have a light weight leave in instead of a thick one, this is a product to try. 

An aloe vera infusion of: banana, broccoli seed oil, marshmallow root, sweet almond oil and turmeric and other conditioners.  This product and all of Terra Veda products are free of: parabens, sulfates, silicones, mineral oil and petroleum. 

If you love the kinky curly knot today, then you will love this even more. Except with this banana slip detangler you do not have to add anything else to it. This product performs well all on its own. You are also supporting a black owned sister business, when you buy this product. I know you love that!

  • Detangler
  • Leave in conditioner
  • moisturizer
  • rinse out conditioner
  • Pre-poo treatment 

Stop by the Terra Veda Organix website and check out their other fabulous products. Let's remember to Support a Sista! When you try them come back and let me know your experience.

How to work clay into your hair care regimen

Answering all of your questions about clay

You have  read about how awesome clay is for the hair.  You would love to try it, but you have no ideal where to start.

Where do I purchase clay?
>>>You can find clays at your local health food stores. You can also find good values on
     Here is a great deal on bentonite clay!
     Great buy on Red Clay!

I have seen several kinds of clay which one do I start with?
>>>Red clay aka Moroccan clay, green clay, rhassaoul clay, kaolin clay and bentonite clay. Your jar of clay will tell you the origins of the clay. As a beginner working with clay it is best to start with bentonite clay. Bentonite clay is great for the face and hair.

How do I use it on my hair?
>>>Create your clay mixture and mix into a thick conditioner consistency. Then slather it on the hair being sure to cover all of your hair. Cover hair with plastic conditioning cap for 1 hour. Then rinse with warm water until all clay is removed.
A popular brand of Red Clay! Buy now!
Go ahead and do a face masque with whatever is left from your hair masque. Clay mixes should be made when ready to use.

Cover with a self heating conditioning cap for 1 hour or more.

I purchased some clay, but the jar does not say it can be used on the hair.
>>>Look at the contents of your clay, if it says any of the clays listed above and that you can use it on the face then you are fine. The popular brand of bentonite clay I use does not have instructions for using it on the hair. However I have used it on my hair for years. Be sure your bentonite clay says calcium bentonite. 

Do I have to use apple cider vinegar, in my mix?
>>>The acv helps to lower the PH of the clay, so it is highly recommended to use acv in your clay masque.

How often can I use clay on my hair?
>>>I recommend once per month, however you can use it once a week if you desire. Some people let clay washes take the complete place of their shampoos. Clay cleanses deep but without stripping the hair. If you clay mixture is prepared correctly it will cleanse and condition in one step.

How long do I leave it on my hair?
>>>Cover with a plastic conditioning cap and leave on 1 to 3 hours. 

Do I sit under a dryer?
>>>No it is not recommended. Remember you are working with clay you do not want the clay to dry tight onto your scalp. This will make it hard to rinse off.

Do I still use shampoo after I use clay?
>>>No, the clay is your cleanser. No need to double clean, because that will only take away any conditioning the clay has done for your hair. 
A smooth mix of red clay
This mix is kinda lumpy, you want to mix until creamy like above.

Do I deep condition after a clay treatment?
>>>If your clay mixture is made perfectly for your hair you will not have to. Clay cleans and conditions in one step. However if you find that the conditioning from the clay is not enough you can proceed with deep conditioning. Remember you should be applying a leave in conditioner after every cleanse. So you will have continuous conditioning.  

In addition to cleansing and conditioning clay washes also make your curl pattern more pronounced and your hair easier to untangle.

Increase your hair growth rate with New Moon trimming (Sept)

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,a time to plant and a time to uproot,a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

Timing is important in this world's system. Some even believe having the right timing is everything in terms of success. Even if timing is not everything to you, you must agree that timing is important. There is a certain time of the month a woman can have a baby, and only that time. If the timing is off the egg will not be fertilized. So even in creating life timing is everything.

Stimulate your hair growth rate by trimming your hair during high energy days. Each month, there are certain high energy times based on the position of the moon, in which hair growth is optimal.It only takes one new moon trim to stimulate your hair growth rate, this is not something you must do every month. 

Simply choose one of the dates below and with trimming scissors, trim as much hair as you need. The amount you trim does not matter.
New Moon trim dates for September
26th* Super high energy day
27th* Super Moon/Blood Moon

September 27th  the will be a Super moon, this means the moon is the closets to the earth. In Super Moon the moon emits more energy than usual. This is a perfect time to trim your hair. Ideally you would trim your hair as the moon is growing bigger. This means you trim over 2 or 3 days. 

Decide now how much you want to trim. How much you trim does not matter. Say you plan to trim 1/2 inch. You decide to do your trims over a two day period. So divide the amount you plan to trim in half. Choose your two trim days from above. It would be wise to choose the 26th and 27th. On the 26th you will trim 1/4 of an inch. The 27th you will trim the other 1/4 inch. This equals 1/2 inch for you two day trim. After you trim, write down your length. Remeasure your length again in 40 days. You should receive double to triple your normal growth rate increase. In order to accurately know you must know how much your hair grows normally each month. 

The 27th also brings us a Total Lunar Eclipse, this causes the moon to be red in color. This Blood Moon gives off lots of energy. Super Moon and Blood Moon, powerful!
