Maybe Simplicity is Better

Hello Curlies :),
Im trying to be more active on this blog, so here is a brief update. I am going to be doing a simplified regimen for two months. I will only be using 2-3 product lines, and all the products will have ayurvedic properties. I am doing a Keep it Simple challenge for me and my daughter. I started today with my daughter, I used a bentonite clay with aloe vera juice to cleanse her hair and then I gave her a Amla treatment. Her hair felt fantastic afterwards. I am going be more specific in a later post what styling products I will be using. I may attempt to make my own butters and leave ins as well. We shall see, if you wish to join me please leave comment maybe I will turn this challenge into a future giveaway. Lets do this!!!!

Ayurvedic Powders and Herbs I will be using:
Marshmallow Root
Burdock Root
Calendula Flower
Rhassoul Clay
Bentonite Clay
Apple Cider Vinegar
Aloe Vera Juice

Naturalista Feature

Im looking to showcase naturals on my blog, there really are no requirements just have some clear pictures that I can include with the feature. If you are interested email me at I will need know when you went natural, did you transition or big chop, what products do you use, what is your wash process, and finally what advice would you give to someone who is trying to go natural???

Lexflnatural Hair Regimen

Its been awhile since I wrote a blog post, I have been trying to balance all three of my social media outlets. I will be trying to do more post in the future. Today I want talk about what I use in my hair and the process I do with my regimen. First thing, I always prepoo; my main prepoo is Shea Moisture Black Soap Purification Masque this instantly melts my tangles every time. When I wash my hair which is every two weeks I use Sisters Keeper Sunburst Shampoo Bar, this bar gives a great lather and leaves my hair clean but not stripped. I use several different leave ins but my main ones are Oyin Handmade Hair Dew and HoneyChile Hairlove Hair Nectar Leave in for Kinky Hair. The main oils I use are castor oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, and EVOO. For stylers I use Bel Nouvo Moisture Quench Butter and Qhemet Biologics Aethopika Butter. Finally my main deep conditioners are Camille Rose, BelNouvo Creamy Castor Custard, and Sisters Keeper Deep Conditioner. I recent did a video sharing the main products I use, feel free to check that out if you are interested. When I wash my hair I prepoo, shampoo, deep condition, oil rinse, tea rinse (only if Im protective styling), than I do the LCO method. What products are in heavy rotation in your hair regimen, have you changed your regimen recently??? Feel free to leave your comments and questions :)

Natural Hair Community Whipped Amla Butter and Growth Stimulating Hair Tea

     Allie, from the Natural Hair Community contacted me a while back to review these products. Due to me not blogging or vlogging as much it took me a minute to get to the products. However over the past couple of months I have used the tea at least four different times and the butter twice. The factor that persuaded me to review these products is the wonderful ingredients. I used the tea following the instructions  sent to me with products. The instructions stated boil six cups of water and allow the tea to seep in the water for about 45 minutes. It states you can use about two teaspoons of tea. You are suppose to rinse your hair twice with the tea and then between those rinses massage your scalp for few minutes. It also states you can leave the tea rinse in without rinsing it out. I used the tea following these directions the first two times. The left over tea can be used as a spritz. The tea contains lavender, hibiscus, and rosemary. 

    My experience the first two times of use was ok; the first time my hair felt kinda weird but I disregarded it as the combination of products I used. The second time I experience the same thing and it left my hair feeling kind of dry. The third time I decided to rinse my hair only once instead twice and rinsed the tea out instead of leaving it in. My results were a little better, the final time I added some ingredients to it. I watched one of Allie's videos and she talked about how she added some oils to her tea so I decided to do that to see if it would be more moisturizing. I added two ingredients (calendula flower and marshmallow root) and a little bit of avocado oil. Well it worked my hair felt soft and moisturized afterwards.

     As far as the whipped amla butter I did not use it as a styler, but I did use it to seal my ends. It did what it was suppose to do keep my ends moisturized. Also with the butter a little goes a long way. My final thoughts the tea worked for me better with additional ingredients and the butter was good as a sealer for me. If you would like additional information on her line I will include a link to her website. I will also list ingredients for both products below. I hope this review was helpful if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment. :) 

Growth Stimulating Tea: Lavender: Stimulates hair growth, aids in hair loss, relieves dandruff, and promotes calm and relaxation.
Rosemary: Stimulates hair growth, adds shine to dull hair also relieves dandruff.
Do not use Rosemary if pregnant, have epilepsy or have high blood pressure. Nettles can be substituted for Rosemary.
Hibiscus Petals: Stimulates blood circulation and ensures the supply of essential nutrients to the hair follicles. The extracts of Hibiscus help to control dandruff and hair fall.

Whipped Amla Butter: Pure Unrefined Raw Ivory Shea Butter, Amla Powder, Hibiscus and Castor Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Essential Oil Blend
