Saving Your Hair This Winter

About to drop my son at school.
Hey Gals,

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all are doing great.
Today I am talking about how I am saving my hair this season. The weather is very chilly now and if care is not taken, our hairs can become dry and brittle.

Each morning when I wake up, I wet my hair, massage into my hair my oil mix and seal the moisture in with my sheabutter. Sheabutter has really helped my skin and hair such that they feel moisturised every time.

After sealing in the moisture, I cover my hair with a plastic cap and scarf it for how many minutes or hours I want. Since I have to go out because of my son's school, I have knitted myself some hats to save my hair when I am out.
I believe if  you have relaxed hair, massaging in your hair natural oils and whipped sheabutter will strengthen your strands. You can get yourself a hat to save your hair from the wind and the clod weather which breaks our hair.
Before I retire to bed, I wet my hair again and massage in some oil and sheabutter.
I have realised my hair doesn't dry out like before and I am loving it.

FYI: My online store will be launched in a few weeks, we have in store unrefined sheabutter, african black soap, whipped sheabutter;raw & infused with natural oils, hair accessories, lip balms, handmade soaps and many more. So please watch out for it.

Have a blessed day and remember to give your hair some TLC.

How To Achieve a Smooth & Supple Face

FYI, I have changed the name of my blog to www.sheabeutimia.blogspot.com due to the soon to be launched Online Store. If you still use www.butternaturale.blogspot.com, it will still bring you here as it has been linked. Thanks


Hi Gals,

Hope you are all well, I am fine just busy with kids, studies and business as usual.

Well, I have good news for you if you want to achieve a smooth face or skin.

For your information, I don't use make-ups. Lol. Not that I don't like them but I just want to go natural but who knows, maybe one day I will find a natural make-up and use it.

This recipe is very simple but very effective.

All you need is Natural Yogurt from any supermarket. Natural Yogurt has a gentle cleansing property such that it smoothes your skin.

Pour just a little in a small bowl and apply to your face and neck.

Keep it on for 15mins and rinse off your face and neck.

You will come back and tell me I wasn't kidding.

Alternatively, you can add honey to the Natural Yogurt since Honey is a great ingredient for beautiful skin.

Check the above photo and tell me my face isn't smooth. Lol

I believe looking beautiful can be achieved by using our normal natural products as compared to the synthetic products we have been using for years. These chemicals only bring us diseases in the long run.

Have a fruitful day y'all

Love you to bits

MUAH!!

9 Months of Going Natural

Hey Gals,
This is not stretched hair.

Hope you are all doing great. I have decided to show you pictures of my hair length and I am so exciting about this. My Hair is growing!
My hair is so curly it experiences lots of shrinkage, so I try to keep it straight all the time. It's just over 4 inches because I trimmed two weekends ago. I never thought my hair could grow this long within 9 months. So why wasn't my relaxed hair growing past my shoulders for 10 years of relaxing.Lol

Hope you guys enjoyed it, thanks for stopping by.

Love you all

Detangling My Hair With Aloe Vera Juice

This is how I protect my hair from the wind & cold weather.
Hi Gals,

Hope you all doing great by God’s grace. Sorry you are not reading from me frequently, it is because school has re-opened and the assignments keep coming.lol

You know what, I detangled my hair very well for the first time last weekend and I will give you the recipe shortly.

I get this from Amazon.co.uk
On Saturday morning, I was still thinking about what I could do to detangle hair without losing much hair. I remembered aloe vera juice detangles my hair very well when I am braiding so I decide to give it a go. The reason why aloe vera juice can detangle my hair is because of its PH. It is acidic so when I add it to water (PH of 7), brings the PH down to between 4.5-5.5 depending on the proportions and this detangles my hair.

I didn’t measure because I was trying it out, so I poured some aloe vera juice in my mixed oils for hot oil treatment.

Then I massaged the whole mixture into my scalp and hair and covered it with a plastic cap. This was left in for about an hour. I took off the cap and detangled my hair in sections.  In fact the result was amazing; my hair was detangled with less than 20 hairs shedding. It is normal for hair to shed 70 to 100 hairs a day, so this means I retained my length.

The only downturn was when I used my Too Shea Conditioner. This Conditioner as I said in my previous post curls my hair such that it can tangle my hair easily.

At long last, I have found a recipe that detangles my hair easily and I am so happy about it. You can also give it a try and give me a feedback on it.

Hope this helped, thanks for stopping by.

Have a blessed day.

Love you all

Natural Yogurt for Conditioning Hair?




Hey Ladies,

Yes indeed, you can condition your hair with natural yogurt.
Hope you all doing well. I promised you yesterday that I will be posting the homemade recipe I conditioned my hair with. I will be using this conditioner for a month to see the effect on my hair. This conditioner can be used for relaxed and natural hair types.

Well it’s very simple.

Ingredients:

A day after conditioning
1 pot of Natural Yogurt (From any supermarket)

1 tsp Lemon Juice

1 Egg Yolk

Rosemary and Peppermint Essential Oil (Optional)

Procedure:

*Pour 60g of natural yogurt into a small container. The yogurt not only forms the creamy base but also cleanses gently and its anti-bacterial properties will help remove every grime and dirt from the hair.

*Add the egg yolk to the yogurt by separating the egg white from the egg yolk. The egg yolk is a deep-penetrating moisturizer that adds strength and elasticity to the hair so that the new growth will not break easily. It also contains biotin which is good for hair growth. The egg yolk also makes the hair silky smooth.

*Add 1 tsp of lemon juice to the mixture. The lemon is a natural astringent and will help to remove product build-up from the hair. Lemon has the same PH of the hair’s natural oils thus protects the hair by sealing the hair cuticles and this prevents split ends.

*Mix 5 drops of rosemary oil and 5 drops of peppermint oil to the mixture and stir. These oils have a cool refreshing effect and they help stimulate the blood circulation in the scalp thereby encouraging hair growth.

*Apply to wet hair and gently massage the scalp and cover with a plastic cap. Leave it on for about 5mins or for about 30mins for deep conditioning.

*Rinse from hair, dry hair and style as usual.


Hope this was helpful
Have a blessed day y'all
Love you
