NappyNubianPoet ~ Vid Update (Curled Kinky Twists)(NappyNubianPoet) avatar
I am a "Nappy" hair enthusiast! Please do not be offended by my use of this word. I use it reference to hair appearing in its rawest, and most beautiful state - free from any chemicals i.e. relaxer, perm, texturizer etc.

I believe that hair is healthiest when it is in its rawest, natural form. I believe that in this form that afro hair can truly thrive and be the very definition of crowning glory!

This same theory can be applied to life in general... Why mask and stifle what is naturally occurring to mould and shape it into something it was never supposed to be? Any addition made to an individual should be to ENHANCE natural beauty, allow it to flourish... not mask and manipulate its beauty beyond recognition.

I AM NOT ANTI-WEAVE or ANTI-RELAXER AT ALL!

In fact, I believe that when applied properly, weave-ons and hair extensions i.e. braids/kinky twists, can lead to incredible hair growth as they are protective hairstyles. Particularly during the harsh winters experienced here in the UK.

As for relaxer... I have had TOO many bad experiences and suffered alot of hair trauma all for the sake of straight hair. NEVER again!

I am always experimenting with hairstyles and natural hair products and I would like to create my own range of hair products one day... The UK doesn't seem to have the knowledge or range of products available to promote natural hair growth.

HAIR REGIMEN ~ Under Construction.

I am a self confessed product junkie! I'm forever experimenting, replacing and reviewing.

CURRENT PRODUCTS:

1) SHAMPOO - once a week:
~ Avalon Organics Scalp Treatment Shampoo with Tea Tree
(Free from Parabens, sodium lauryl, laureth sulfate, preservatives & 100% vegetarian!)

AND/OR

~ Apple cider vinegar (used to clarify)

2) DEEP CONDITIONER - once a week:
~ Pantene Relaxed & Natural Breakage Defense Deep Conditioning Mask (as reviewed & recommended by Curly Nikki. Excellent so far!)

OR

~ Organic Root Stimulator's Hair Mayonnaise (staple product)

OR

~ Homemade hot oil treatment

3) CO-WASH - twice a week:
~ Herbal Essences Hello Hydration
(Staple product - excellent for detangling & defining my curls. Great slip!)

4) OTHER:
~ Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream
(good for styling twist outs/braid outs. Best used after washing hair whilst still wet. Gives great curl definition. Do not use with other products as it can cause horrible build-up)

~ Raw shea butter
(used in my own shea butter mix along with olive oil and coconut oil. I use this for styling i.e. twist outs /braid outs)

~ Olive oil
(Staple. Used for shea butter mix, hot oil treatments & oiling my scalp)

~ Coconut Oil
(For shea butter mix & hot oil treatments)

~ Vegetable glycerin
(mixed with water, I use this to spritz my hair when it starts to become dry. l also use this before styling/manipulating my hair)

I'LL KEEP YOU POSTED ON ANY CHANGES!

Hopefully, Fotki will allow me to learn from others and share what I have learned.

Oh, I am also a poet! Come and see me perform on the London circuit and/or read my poetry blog: http://carolohemaapoetry.blogspot.com
