Everything you need to make the Aloe Vera hair growth serum



Aloe Vera gel should be a staple in your hair care routine. It has many amazing benefits for your hair. One major benefit is increasing your hair growth. 

ALOE GEL INCREASES HAIR GROWTH IN 3 MAJOR WAYS
1. Aloe stimulates better hair growth when applied on the scalp. 
2. Its anti bacterial properties eliminate germs which get in the way of hair growth.
3. Greatly helps length retention, by smoothing the hair cuticle, preventing splits and breakage.


POWERFUL ALOE GEL HAIR GROWTH SERUM

APPLY AND LEAVE ON SCALP 3 TIMES A WEEK

INCREASED GROWTH RESULTS IN 40 DAYS

Why does this combination work?

Jojoba oil is the best carrier oil you can use in your mixes. The jojoba balances your sebum production, as it conditions your scalp. Combined with the amazing moisturizing properties of the aloe gel, it becomes super conditioning. 
The sesame seed oil rids the scalp of infections that are in the way of you reaching optimum growth each month. It also combines with the jojoba oil for amazing softness. 
The tea tree oil, provides you with a scalp antiseptic, anti viral and anti fungal. Combining with the anti bacterial super properties of the aloe gel, your scalp is safe from fungus and bad bacteria, which is the top cause of slow hair growth and hair loss.

Hair Cleansing Clay


Ditch your shampoo for clay!

Tired of using shampoo?

Would you like a more natural cleanser?

Constantly dealing with dry hair?

Replacing your shampoo with clay could be a game changer for your hair journey. 




What is so awesome about cleansing with clay?

IT'S ALL NATURAL
This Indian healing clay is one ingredient. It is calcium bentonite clay.

FUNCTIONS AS A DUO BEAUTY TREATMENT
 While you would not dare use your shampoo on your face. You can use this bentonite clay on your skin and hair. It is a cleanser and conditioner for the hair and skin. That is a great investment!

DEEP CLEANS WITHOUT TANGLING
This clay detoxes your scalp and hair. But unlike shampoo, it does not strip your hair to the point that it leaves it tangled. 

DETANGLES AND DEFINES YOUR COILS
You will notice an immediate difference in how easily your hair untangles after washing. The clay conditions so well, it leaves your coils well defined. A great head start for your wash and go. 

SIMPLE CLAY CLEANSER
1/3 cup Indian Healing clay (Bentonite clay)
1/4 cup of Morrocan red clay
1 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup spring water



HOW TO MIX
Warming the water just a little bit helps it to blend easier.
Do not use any type of metal tools to mix clay.
Pour clay into glass or plastic bowl.
Add half of the water first. 
Stir with plastic or wood spoon.
Blend until you get a smooth mix, similar to a cream conditioner. Add a little water at a time and stir gently. Pour in ACV. Add more water if 3/4 cup is not enough. You do not want a watery mix, because it can be messy to apply.



HOW TO APPLY
Apply to very wet hair. 
Smooth from scalp to ends.
Cover with a plastic cap, do not use heat.
Leave cover 1 to 3 hours.
Rinse out with warm water.
Once all clay is out of hair, let cool water run over hair for 30 seconds. Follow up with leave in conditioner and sealants.

Never blow dry your hair!




In order to maintain healthy growing natural hair, you must have a routine that keeps your hair moisturized. Using a blow dryer is counterproductive to keeping your hair hydrated. Many naturals use a blow dryer to quickly stretch their coily hair. However, in the process of giving your hair stretch, it sucks all the moisture from the hair. This is the main reason that you should never ever, ever. ever, ever use a blow dryer on your hair. 

When I get my hair braided, my braider uses the blow dryer to stretch my hair. What do I do about this?
Afro hair is perfect for braiding in its natural state. A good braider should not have to blow dry your hair in order to braid it. It should look just as good being braided in its natural perfect state. Always shampoo, deep condition, detangle and moisturize the hair before getting your hair braided. 

Two all natural heat free ways to stretch hair

1.  Braid your hair in  5 to 7 loose plaits, and let it air dry. Your hair will have a very nice healthy stretch. 




2. Roll hair on magnetic rollers, using slim sections. Let hair air dry. Your hair will have awesome stretch, superior to that you get from blow drying.
  

So what is the problem with blow drying the hair,  before getting braid extensions?

As previously stated, blow dryers  suck all the moisture from the hair. Then adding the fake hair on top of your natural hair dries it out, even more.  Fake hair is made up of a type of plastic.  As this plastic lays on top of your hair, it sucks more moisture from your already scorched blow dried hair. The combination of the blow dryer and the plastic fiber is not conducive to keeping your Afro hair hydrated. 

When you remove the fake hair after wearing it for several weeks or months, you lose more hair than you should.  This is due to your coils drying out under the extensions.  As the weight of the fake hair swings back and forth  week after week, your hair begins to weaken. Thus when you remove the extensions, that weakened dried out hair breaks easily. What you think is shed hair, also ends up being breakage. 

What about when I deep condition?
When a deep conditioner tells you to use heat, they are not referring to the harsh heat of a blow dryer. You use a heat cap, steamer or sit under a soft bonnet dryer. Invest in one of those items, for your healthy hair journey.

Christmas gift list:  steamer, heat cap or bonnet dryer.

Getting rid of crunchy, dry hair!




Chronic dry hair, is probably, the number one complaint from women, with coily hair.. If your hair has been consistently dry, there is no one step solution to correct it. Most people expect a one product solution to their hair issue. In most cases there are several reasons why your hair is not holding moisture. Therefore it will require more than "one" solution to correct it. 

The Coily Queens regimen, when followed, gets you to what we call, "Good Hydration".  Good Hydration is when your hair holds moisture for 3 days or more, before you need to apply more moisturizer. A moisturizer is a leave in conditioner that contains water. Water is listed as the first or sometimes second ingredient.



YOUR ROAD MAP TO GOOD HYDRATION

1. How often do you cleanse?
You cannot expect your hair strands to stay hydrated, if you do not clean your hair on a regular basis. Removing dirt, germs and old product is very important to hydration. You should shampoo twice a week. Germs accumulate daily. 

2. What products do you cleanse and condition with?
Cleanse with a non sulfate shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner. Choose conditioners with close to all natural ingredients. Add 1 tbsp of honey to your DC. 

If you have used various good quality shampoos and conditioners, but nothing seems to work? I highly recommend forfeiting all shampoos. Replace you shampoos and deep conditioners with clay washes. Bentonite clay, red clay cleanses the hair and conditions in one step. More INFO 

3. What technique do you use to cleanse and condition?
The CQ Shampoo process is a special shampoo technique, that leaves your hair properly moisturized. Hair becomes more hydrated the more you do the process. FULL DETAILS on the CQ Shampoo Process. 

Following these 3 steps consistently and your hair will become healthier overtime. You will reach GOOD HYDRATION, with your hair.

Top hair steamers!

If you have an issue with chronic dry hair, you can benefit greatly from hair steaming. Steam enables the conditioner to absorb better into your hair shaft. So if you have a consistent issue with your hair not staying moisturized, even to the end of the day. A steamer is an awesome investment for you. 

Chronically dry hair, ends up being broken hair. Hair which is consistently breaking does not retain length. 

LACK OF LENGTH RETENTION IS THE REASON YOUR HAIR REMAINS THE SAME LENGTH YEAR AFTER YEAR. YOUR HAIR IS GROWING BUT IT IS BREAKING JUST AS FAST. 

Increasing your moisture retention is a huge part of retaining length. For those with chronic dryness a hair steamer can change their moisture retention game. A hair steamer conditions the hair 5 times better than a hair dryer.

Treat your dry hair to a hair steamer.

Invest in your hair! 

Your coils deserve it!

I found you several good hair steamers on Amazon. CHECK THEM OUT!!!

Applying the Aphogee 2-step protein treatment to your coily hair




What type of treatment is the Aphogee 2-step treatment?
A high quality hair treatment, that temporarily adheres small particles of animal proteins to each of your hair strands. This instantly gives your hair extra strength against manipulation and fills in the broken spaces on your hair strands. While the protein is on the hair, it is least likely to break from manipulation. This enables you to retain more length. Thus reaching your length goals faster.



Who should use this type of treatment?

  • Those with moderate to severe breakage.
  • Those with damaged hair strands.
  • Thin hair strands and fine hair strands.
  • Use before applying hair extensions. This helps to protect the hair while under the fake hair. 
  • Those who heat straighten, color or relax their hair. 


What is the difference in a protein treatment and a protein conditioner?
A protein treatment such as the Aphogee 2-step, provides you with superior strength. Most protein conditioners only provide you with mild protection. Protein conditioners are for mild breakage and preventing breakage.

The Aphogee 2-step can be used once every 4 to 6 weeks.

This treatment is temporary and it wears off daily. 

Always deep condition after this treatment. 

The product recommends using their shampoo and balancing moisturizer.
However, I found those products to be lack luster and not enough moisture for Afro curly hair

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

  1. Aphogee 2-step protein treatment
  2. A clarifying or deep cleansing shampoo
  3. A moisturizing deep conditioner
  4. Hair clips
  5. Pure honey
  6. An applicator bottle with nozzle
  7. A hooded dryer
  8. 1 large towel
  9. 1 small towel in a bowl of warm water


PHASE TWO:  THE SHAMPOO 

1. Allow medium temp water to run over hair for 30 seconds.
2. Thoroughly shampoo hair with a clarifying or deep cleansing non sulfate shampoo.
It is very important to cleanse the hair well, so that the protein sticks well.
3. Lather, rinse and repeat. (2 lathers)

For easier application, pour the aphogee 2 step treatment into a bottle with a nozzle.  

Fill a small bowl with hot water. Use it to dip your fingers in should they become to sticky.


PHASE THREE:  THE APPLICATION 
(read bottle instructions before applying)
1. Apply the treatment in sections, making slim parts, being sure to cover each strand.
2. Smooth product from roots to tips.
3. Work quickly because the product is very sticky and dries fast. 
4. Use the small towel in the warm water to wipe your hands as you work.

Once the hair hardens do not manipulate. 

5. After you have saturated your hair with the protein, sit under a hooded dryer until the product dries hard onto your hair. About 15 minutes.
Do not cover hair with a plastic cap while under dryer.
6. After the product has hardened on hair, rinse out with warm water. 

Rinse until you no longer feel anymore of the protein on the hair.


PHASE FOUR: RESTORING MOISTURE

1. You can now apply the aphogee balancing moisturizer or you can deep condition your hair with a moisturizing deep conditioner. 
Apply the balancing moisturizer according to the directions on the product.
OR
Mix 1 tbsp on honey with the desired amount of your deep conditioner. Cover hair with a plastic cap and sit under a hooded dryer for 10 minutes.
2. Rinse with cool water
3. After conditioning, spray hair down with the Aloe Vera pH balancing Spritzer.
4. Do not remove moisture from hair.
5. Apply your leave in conditioner and oils and style

October New Moon Trim Dates

The moon and  stars to  rule over the night, for His steadfast love endures forever.
Psalms 136:9

What is New Moon hair growth?
It is using the power of the New Moon as it increases towards the Full Moon, to stimulate your hair growth. This is done by trimming your hair during the growing phase of the moon. You can trim as little or as much as you desire. 



What supplies do I need to practice this hair growth method?
A pair of hair cutting scissors. and a hair journal to record how much you cut and how much your hair grows every 40 days. This is all that is needed now how great is that!

October New Moon Phase Dates
Best days to trim for increased hair growth
20th

Best days to dye your hair
Oct 13th and 14th

Best day to heat straighten or chemical straighten 
Oct 15th, 16th, 17th

I did the trim now what?
Be sure you have trimmed your hair on the correct dates, many people get it mixed up and believe you trim your hair on the Full Moon. But a Full Moon has already matured, you want to trim your hair so your hair can grow as the New Moon grows. Once you have the right date, then trim as you desire and write down how much you trimmed and the length of your hair now. Then every 40 days record your hair growth in you hair journal. 

Do I have to trim every month?
No you do not. Most people receive results from one new moon phase trim.  I believe you can continue to get results for up to 5 months after one new moon phase trim. Simply follow you regular trim schedule.  you can do it one time if you like. I believe you can get results up to 6 months after your trim. The only way to know for sure is to try it and keep an accurate record of your growth increase.  For accuracy it helps to measure in the same area each time and also keep the hair in the same condition each time you measure. If you did your first trim on stretched hair then remember to stretch your hair when you do your follow up measurements in 40 days. 

Hopefully you have a better understanding of what the New Moon hair growth method is and how to practice it. If you are one of those women who are afraid to cut your hair, fear not, your hair will grow back and you will gain even more. Trimming your hair is a part of a good hair care regimen, you should trim every 4 months that is 3 times a year. Now that is not bad is it? Your hair will love you for it and it will look so much healthier.



My continued growth results from August 
 My results from my new moon trim back on August 17, 2013.
I cut two inches from my bangs on August 17th, as of January 29th, my bangs have grown back 4.25 inches. I gained 4.25 inches of new growth in 5 months. My regular rate of hair growth is 1/4 inch per month. The new moon  method has almost given  me a consistent 1 inch  growth increase over the past 5 months. Four and 1/4 inches in 5 months. The average rate of hair growth per month is 1/2 inch.  I exceeded the the average! Praise God! On January 14th I did another New Moon trim, I cut 1/4 of an inch and that has grown back already. So what are you waiting on? Get your supplies ready and mark your date.

Blue Magic Twist Outs



For the last 15 years black women in large numbers have stopped relaxing their hair. We have decided to embrace our natural curls. Many have also given up using cheap products, that contain bad ingredients. Grease is one of those ingredients most naturals stopped using. 

Petroleum has become a taboo ingredient on most natural forums and hair sites. It is commonly believed that petroleum clogs the hair follicles. Thus greatly making your hair grow slow. This is not true. 




Despite grease being taboo by most naturals, there is still one grease that remains popular. You guessed it! That old Blue Magic! This grease is an oldie, but goody for some. On youtube you will find dozens of naturals, testifying about how much they love blue magic hair grease. They say, that blue magic gives them the best twist outs ever. Water plus blue magic makes their twist outs pop!  
THE ORIGINAL


SHOULD YOU USE BLUE MAGIC HAIR GREASE?


If you are satisfied with your styling product, I would say, no. But if you have tried several good styling products, for your hair, and you are still not satisfied, this is a good option to try. Petroleum does not clog your hair follicles. The molecular structure is not big enough to clog your hair follicles, nor prevent moisture from getting into your hair. 

HOW I RECOMMEND USING BLUE MAGIC

Apply some Shea butter to freshly washed and conditioned hair. Apply the grease on top of the Shea butter, then create your twists. This should be done on wet hair. Let hair set until dry. You should noticed great definition, more elongation and shine.
Petrolatum, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Lanolin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Buxus Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaves (Japanese Green Tea), Tocopheryl Acetate, Apocynum Cannabinum Root Extract, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Propylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Flower Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Extract, Echinacea Angustifolia Extract, Trigonella Foenum-Graecum Seed Extract, Cola Acuminata Seed Extract, Lawsonia Inermis (Henna) Extract, Fragrance. 

I would not apply it to the scalp, although some swear by it on the scalp. I say stick with more natural oils on the scalp. The Blue Magic grease has several not so great ingredients. The unnatural fragrance, green 6 and yellow 11, just to name a few.  Those are the reasons I would not use it on my scalp. I think this product is okay for the hair, when used sparingly. Once you set your twist out or style, you do not reapply the blue magic for at least 3 days. Doing so will help prevent build up from the grease. 



Although blue magic grease is a popular grease, due to its large size and cheap cost. My favorite grease is Indian Hemp by Kuza. I use it when I straighten my hair. It is a thick grease filled with herbs and good ingredients. It is the only product which helps to keep my curls when I do rollersets or flat irons. 



This is a flat iron with curls set bantu knot style. I used the Kuza Indian Hemp grease. It gives me amazing sheen, hold and keeps my curls from frizzing. 



Black owned product you can find at CVS, Walmart, Target and most Beauty supply stores. Great for shin and sealing in moisture.

Increasing your hair growth rate with New Moon Phase Trimming (Sept dates)




The moon has a direct pull on all living things. Each month the new moon grows into a full moon. As the moon increases it emits different degrees of energy. The human body is made up of 60 to 80% water. The same way the moon gives strength to the oceans, it also gives strength to the human body. Trimming your hair as the moon grows, can change your hair growth rate. If you  choose the right high energy day, your hair growth can double or triple.

Take advantage of the moon's momentum!  

Healthy hair, requires  regular trims. 

Since you have to trim anyway,  why not try a new moon phase trim?

Grow your thinning edges back in 40 days


IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND
These tips work the best for the following hair loss situations
a. Your edges do not have bald spots. Areas void of hair. 
b. Your hair thinning, is less than a year old. 
c. Currently you are not wearing wigs, weaves or applying any type of tension to your edges. 

BALD EDGES WHICH HAVE BEEN THAT WAY A LONG TIME
If you have clean bald spots on your edges, I recommend that you make an appointment with the dermatologist. Ask the doctor for a scalp biopsy to see what is going on under the scalp. You stand a greater chance at recovering your hair when you seek treatment early. The absolute worst thing you can do for your hair loss is continue to put stress on the area by wearing extensions or using harsh chemicals. Go ahead and make that doctor's appointment. Write down everything you can think of to tell the doctor about your hair loss.


Examining bald areas for yourself, in the meantime



Get a friend to look at your scalp up close with a magnifying glass. Have them examine any bald areas. Even if no hair is there, if the follicle is still alive they should see the small hole. Ask them do they see any holes. Seeing holes is a good sign that the follicle is still alive. This gives you a great chance at recovering hairs in those holes. If no holes are present the hair follicle is most likely closed. Sometimes you will see a follicle that is partially closed. If you see some which appear to be closed make a dermatologist appointment asap. You need to know what is going on under the scalp. Medical tests are the only way to know that. 


4 SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR RECENT HAIR LOSS

If you have recently received the hair loss, it will be fairly easy to recover that hair. When I say recently, I mean within the last 3 months. The older the hair loss the harder the recovery.

  1.  Remove all stress from the edges. Do not even use a brush or toothbrush on your edges. 
  2.  Create a stimulating oil blend and massage that oil onto your scalp for ten minutes daily. 
  3.  Cleanse scalp weekly and condition it daily. 
  4.  Take a hair growth supplement or a multi vitamin. 


Doing those simple things, you will see your edges recover in 40 days. The main change is to immediately stop anything which appears to  take your edges out.  Your hair will recover in no time. 

Many years ago, my edges started thinning out. I was wearing a curly hair sew in, with a leave out. Daily I was brushing my edges in attempts to blend my leave out with the curly weave. After months of this treatment, my edges began to thin a lot.  I didn't notice it until I saw my edges on a picture. 

I immediately stopped using a brush and did the steps above. My edges recovered fully within a month.

Other tips to recover your edges

1. Do not use gel.
2. No type of brushing of your edges, 
3. Moisturize them daily and smooth back using your palms only.
4. At bedtime, braid or cornrow your edges going in a downward motion. Simply one braid on each side of your head, from top to the ear. 
5. Cover hair with  a satin scarf or at night
6. When you deep condition add extra product to your edges.
7. Invest in a hair growth oil. I recommend the liquid gold sulfur oil
