Deep Conditioning Sisterlocks

Deep conditioning a client's Sisterlocks at the Hair Boutique in London.

1. Cleansed scalp with client's aromatherapy shampoo,
2. Shampooed hair with Sisterlocks Salon Shampoo.
3. Gave client a gentle scalp massage to stimulate circulation and soothe the nerves.
4. Rinsed thoroughly & squeezed excess water from the locs.
5. Sectioned hair and applied treatment throughout the length of the locs, concentrating on the ends.
6. Wrapped hair and applied heat for 20 mins (under a hooded dryer).
7. Rinsed product (although the instructions say you could leave it in if you prefer) and dried hair.
8. Retightened all her beautiful locs.

Sisterlocks and Fine Hair

Fine hair can be locked too. Over time, these tiny locs will double or even triple in size and the original scalpiness will fill in - as seen in the 8 wk update.

Product Review - Almocado Twist & Twirl (Conditioning and Styling Cream)

My Review on Almond Avocado Natural "Almocado Twist & Twirl" (Conditioning and Styling Cream) by Sian Nelson-Baah

I've already reviewed The Almond Avocado Aromatherapy Shampoo and Brown Sugar conditioner w/cones- long story short I loved them both and have had no issues with product build up or any ill effects due to cones (the condish is available without cones ).

I washed and conditioned with the AA products mentioned above, I plopped with an old tshirt and when my hair was damp I used bendy rollers to set my hair, I used the Twist and Twirl Conditioning Cream on each section of hair before rolling up, this was the only product I used in hair except water of course. The following morning I removed my rollers (middle pic) separated and fluffed, my hair is soft and shiny and not crispy at all, it is now day 4 and my curls are still soft and shiny and holding their shape. The 3rd pic was taken last night. 

I would recommend these products and I will be trying others in the range. I bought all these products with my own money.

Diamond Tongues 30 Day Challenge

With the start of the year and all the associated resolutions and renewal, I thought it might be interesting to try a challenge.
I'm calling it the "Diamond Tongues" challenge because for 30 days we're going to speak life, strength, positivity and purpose into the ears of our loved ones so they start to feel as strong, as beautiful and as precious as diamonds.

1. speak no evil to or of your chosen loved one (child, spouse, parent, sibling etc) - that means no grumbling or gossiping about them, no nagging etc.
2. As often as you can, take the opportunity to say something positive, encouraging or beautiful to your loved one.
3. If you are angry with or hurt by your chosen loved do NOT curse them, better to say nothing and bite your tongue ( or smile and kill them with kindness!)
4. Do NOT tell them you are doing this challenge!

Invite your BFFs to join in, I'll post updates of my progress on this page, please feel free to do the same. Who's up for a challenge? Can you stay positive for 30 days?
