Red Palm oil the best oil for sealing in moisture

Red Palm oil is a super moisturizer
It is a super oil because it is high in vitamin E. beta carotene and lycopene.

Perfect for locking in moisture due to it richness. 

Is red palm oil the same as palm kernel oil?
No it is from the same fruit, but from a different part of the fruit. Red palm oil is from the pulp or meat of the  palm fruit. It's a red orange color. Palm kernel oil is made from the seed which is left over after you eat the pulp. The seed is mechanically squeezed and it makes a clear oil. Palm kernel oil has less nutritional benefits. It has a longer shelf life and is much cheaper in price than the red palm oil.

I am recommending organic red palm oil for the hair. So be mindful of what you pick up in the grocery store. The color of each oil is distinctly different.  Use a little bit to lock in moisture as you finish off your shampoo regimen. 

Super oil=Super benefits.

Five top reasons for chronic split ends

Split ends happen to all on occasion, however chronic split ends are not normal. You must cut a split hair. You cannot heal split ends. You can temporarily glue them together with treatments. Once hair splits, it is split. You cut it off, or it will continue to rip. 

1. No regular trim schedule
A  good hair care regimen should include a trimming schedule. You decide how often you will trim based on what you do to your hair. The Coily Queens Regimen recommends trimming your hair every 4th month. This equals three times a year. This is if you start out with totally healthy ends. When you trim you hair on a regular basis, your hair styles better and does not pop and break as much. 

2. Using the wrong tools
Your ends will  split easily if you use flat irons, curling irons, blow dryers or pressing combs. Heat from these sources, dries the hair out. Because you are trying to maintain your straight style, you are not moisturizing it properly, and that dries it out even more.  Harsh direct heat also weakens the protein bonds. Your hair is made of lots of layers that protect it, heat weakens those cuticle layers. When any of those layers become weak, your hair will split and eventually break.

Using brushes and combs also weakens the hair bonds. It does it slower than harsh heat. If you use a brush even once a week, your ends will start to thin. The thinning is from the hair splitting and breaking. The end result is thin see through ends, which makes your hair hard to style. Using combs and brushes always require you to cut more inches off when it is time for your trim. The CQR recommends finger combing. Finger combing will save your hair.

3. Eat more protein
All hair is made up of mostly protein. Thus you must eat sufficient protein daily to keep the hair growing from your scalp strong. Include protein rich foods in your diet daily, foods such as: fish, nuts, beans are healthy proteins. Animal proteins build the strongest hair. Taking a hair growth supplement helps the hair to grow stronger and faster. Most of us are not getting a balanced diet daily, so supplement help to make up for diet. 

Including:  Herbal Essence, Dove, Garnier Frutics
4. Using harsh ingredients
Cheap products that include cheap ingredients, sit on your hair and weakens your hair cuticle. Yes many of them give you good immediate results. Most of them are filled with harsh cheap ingredients and silicones. You receive great results when you first use the product, but long term use only leads to dried out damaged hair. Stay away from those products, the cheap price and empty promises are not worth it. 

5. No protein treatments
You fail to include good protein treatments in your regimen on a regular basis. Many naturals, in error, feel they are protein sensitive. This is due to what they have read on hair forums. Your hair is protein so you are not sensitive to it. In most cases you have used the protein incorrectly or used the wrong protein product. Not all protein treatments are created equal. Look for a protein treatment that has hydrolyzed keratin protein in the top 5 ingredients. There are other types of proteins, but the animal proteins are the strongest. They give your hair the most strength. If you are going for beyond bra strap length, up your protein game!

August New Moon Phase trim dates

This month's New Moon Phase trim dates brought to you by Roxie "Sweet Apple" Taylor.

Check out some of her story!

Nige's Art


Mark your calendars for your next new moon phase trim, because there are only a few days to trim in August.


As the moon grows into a full moon it gives off different amounts of energy. Trimming your hair on the right high energy day, will stimulate your hair growth rate. Many find that their hair grows back much longer, after doing a new moon trim. So if your hair normally grows 1/4 of an inch, each month.  you could get up to 1 inch of new growth a month after doing a new moon phase trim.

July New Moon Phase trimming dates for increased hair growth

New Moon Phase Trimming
>>>As the moon grows into a full moon it gives off different levels of energy. Trimming your hair on the right high energy day, will stimulate your hair growth rate. Many find that their hair grows back much longer. So if your hair normally grows 1/4 of an inch each month you could get 1/2 or 1 inch of new growth. 

Benefits of healthy ends:
Hair styles easier
Hair snags and breaks less
Detangles quicker
Faster wash days
Minimized knots

Practice healthy hair habits to keep your ends healthy. You also need a regular trim schedule. How often you trim largely depends on what you do to your hair and your care regimen.

Practices which require you to trim often:
Flat ironing
Blow drying
Brushing the hair
Hair color
Combing hair improperly

Hair is a fiber and just like most fibers it becomes worn and weakened over time. This is not a major issue if you maintain a healthy trim regimen. Trimming your hair every 4th month is usually enough to grow long lengths but still keep your ends looking great. 

If you start your regimen in July with a healthy cut, then you will trim again in  October, then again in February, then again in June. Whichever month you do your first cut in, then mark every 4th month from that month as your trim schedule. 

Writing down a goal holds you to that goal. 

Choose your high energy day within your trim month. I release the best days to trim each month, usually a week before the first high energy trim date for the month. Be subscribed in order to get the notifications. 

Never  heard of New Moon Phase trimming? But you would like to know more? 

Mark your calendars for your trim date.
