Deep Conditioning Benefits

Each strand of hair has 3 layers. Deep conditioning affects the outer layer which is called the cuticle. The cuticle resembles shingles on a roof. They overlap each other, and should lay down flat. When your hair becomes dry and damaged, these shingles will stand up away from the hair shaft. This is what gives hair the dull, frizzy look. Deep conditioning the proper way and with the right products will help to smooth the cuticle, making the shingles lay down again, giving your hair a smoother, shinier, healthier appearance.

Here is another important fact--deep conditioners CANNOT heal damaged hair or improve the quality of new hair grown. It is valuable however, because it can minimize any damage done to your hair, it can restore shine and manageablity to hair, and can add strength to hair until damaged hair grows long enough to be cut off. In other words, it is not a cure, but rather a preventative, to help protect the damaged hair from any further damage, until it gets to a length that you feel comfortable cutting it to. The only TRUE way to cure damaged hair is to cut it off and let new hair grow in.

Creme rinses (the type you put on after you shampoo and rinse out in 5 minutes or less), or detangler as they are also known, just coat the hair. They do not penetrate into the hair to help minimize damage. They do a good job of smoothing hair, making it shiny and helping to remove tangles, but that is all they do. You need a deep conditioner to go further into the hair to really help minimize damage.

Detanglers and creme rinses are a very good choice for use each time you shampoo, but a deep conditioning is best for longer lasting results. Depending on the condition of your hair, conditioning treatments can be done anywhere from once a week to once a month on average.

Some hints to look for when choosing a deep conditioner are: reading to determine how long the product is left on (if it stays on less than 5 minutes, it’s probably not a deep conditioner), look for a product that says you should use a plastic cap or plastic wrap on your head while it is working (plastic caps and/or plastic wrap help hold in heat on your head, allowing the conditioner to penetrate deeper for better results). Deep conditioning treatments usually stay on your hair an average of 15-20 minutes, but all products vary, so this is just an average time.

4. Part your hair from the front to the back of the neck in a center part. Next, part your hair from tip of ear to tip of ear. This will give you 4 sections. Clip each section up. Using these sections will make it easier for

you to know that you haven’t missed any areas when applying conditioner.

5. You can start in any section you like. Part through the section, starting at the top of the head by using your little finger. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it still gives you an idea of where you are applying. Make part about 1/2 inch wide, moving from one side of section to the other horizontally.

6. Hold slice up and away from the other hair and apply a thin coat of conditioner, starting at scalp and working it to the ends. You don’t want big globs of conditioner visible on hair, just a thin film that you can see and feel. When you have applied to the first slice, bring it over and lay it on top of your head. If hair is shorter, just let it stand up and away from the other hair.

7. Continue down the section making your parts and applying conditioner. When a section is completed, bring hair down from top of head so its not in the way of the other sections. Move on to next section, applying in the same manner,and complete the entire head.

8. IMPORTANT: When applying, be sure to apply to scalp and hair, not just hair. Your scalp gets dry too, and needs moisture as much as hair.

9. Place plastic cap or plastic wrap on head, making sure all hair is tucked in. Do not clip hair up if longer, just pile on top of head.

10. Now you have a few options to choose from. If you have a hood dryer (like the ones you sit under in salons), you can sit under it for 15-20 minutes with heat set on medium. You can also toss a towel in the dryer to heat, and wrap it around your head, leaving for same amount of time. If the weather is warm, go

outside and sit for the amount of time needed. You can even do what I do, which is a little housecleaning, to raise your body temperature, and generate heat to your scalp. Heat opens up the hair shaft, and along with the ingredients in a deep conditioner that work to open it also, you’ll get very good penetration and results with the extra heat.

11. When time is up, remove towels and plastic from head. Rinse, rinse, and rinse some more. Use as cool of a water temperature as you are comfortable with. Anything cool or cold will not only rinse away excess conditioner, but it will help to close the hair shaft, trapping the moisture from the conditioner inside. It does take a lot of rinsing, but it is worth the time.

12 When rinsing is completed, towel dry hair again. From here you can blow dry, style or let your hair dry naturally. That’s it! Follow these simple directions, learn to read labels, ask for help from salespeople, and before long, you will be able to recognize when your hair may need a little extra boost of moisture. Have fun!

Viva La Coconut!

So I love Coconut Oil in my hair! I use it to seal and condition my scalp. But check out a few other helpful ways to use Coconut Oil!

Liver: The presence of medium chain triglycerides and fatty acids helps in preventing liver diseases as they substances are easily converted into energy when they reach the liver, thus reducing work load on the liver and also preventing accumulation of fat.

Kidney: Coconut oil helps in preventing kidney and gall bladder diseases. It also helps in dissolving kidney stones.

Pancreatitis: Coconut oil is also believed to be useful in treating pancreatitis.

Stress Relief: Coconut oil is very soothing and hence it helps in removing stress. Applying coconut oil to the head followed with a gentle massage helps in removing mental fatigue.

Diabetes: Coconut oil helps in controlling blood sugar, and improves the secretion of insulin. It also helps in effective utilization of blood glucose, thereby preventing and treating diabetes.

Bones: As mentioned earlier, coconut oil improves the ability of our body to absorb important minerals. These include calcium and magnesium which are necessary for development of bones. Thus coconut oil is very useful to women who are prone to osteoporosis after middle age.

Dental Care: Calcium is an important element present in teeth. Since coconut oil facilitates absorption of calcium by the body, it helps in getting strong teeth. Coconut oil also stops tooth decay.

HIV and Cancer: It is believed that coconut oil plays an instrumental role in reducing viral susceptibility of HIV and cancer patients. Preliminary research has shown indications of the effect of coconut oil on reducing the viral load of HIV patients (Reference).

Finally, coconut oil is often preferred by athletes and body builders and by those who are dieting. The reason behind this being that coconut oil contains lesser calories than other oils, its fat content is easily converted into energy and it does not lead to accumulation of fat in the heart and arteries. Coconut oil helps in boosting energy and endurance, and enhances the performance of athletes

Tantalizing Tuesday!

Hello my Curlfriends!

So as a law I always put the Ingredient of the Day on my Facebook page TrulyNaturallyCoiled so I have decided to bring that here so you can get your dose here as well!

Ingredient of the Day: Black Seed Oil!

Studies have shown that black seed oil is an effective anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory remedy. As a result, it is often used to fight infections and strengthen the immune system, which is suitable for treating the following conditions:

... •toothaches
•nasal congestion
•colds and flus
•digestive and gastrointestinal problems
•hair and skin problems

Studies have shown that Black Seed Oil can help eliminate sleep disorders. Simply mix a teaspoon of black seed oil into a hot drink one hour before bed time for a good night's sleep.

Black seed oil has also been found to be effective at promoting menstruation and increasing milk production. For most ailments, the recommended daily dosage is one teaspoon of black seed oil per day. The oil can be mixed in warm or cold drinks, or it can be added on top of many foods right before consuming. It can also be used topically as a chest rub for respiratory problems.

Hope you've learned something today! Muah Babies!

So lets talk Moisture!

I always get the question, "what made me start my line" well one of the key components was trying to keep my hair moisturized and hydrated. So Ive been on my natural journey for almost 3 years this coming August. I can tell you that there are things that I have tried, and some things have been unsuccessful, some more successful than others. But it was fun trying out different products and learning my hair.

So in steps the MoistureMax HairMasque, OOH JESUS! I let this sit on my hair for over and hour and the love that my hair was shown that day definitely deserved a hero cookie. Lol! Usually once you rinse your hair the benefits go down the drain with the water. But at last! This did not happen. My hair was just as soft, moisturized and detangled as it was when I added the mask to it. Even the driest part of my hair (the middle) was super moist and I finger detangled, my hair felt like butta!

Along this journey, I have learned that you definitely have to keep it simple, but for my I like to throw some extras in when I can. Moisture has always been the center of my hair care regimen. I have started to spray my scalp with water first and then my hair. Making sure my whole head gets some love!

The Benefits of Aloe Vera Gel

Oh, the wonderful things that pure aloe vera gel can be used for. For years, I knew that the gel from the aloe vera plant was a good healing agent when applied to burns, scrapes and wounds. But I have come to learn just how much more I could use aloe vera gel for, and here, I will share some of these uses and benefits.

Applying aloe vera gel to the scalp is a good treatment for dandruff, seborrhea (dermatitis), psoriasis and hair loss that has resulted from these conditions.

Use the gel from an aloe vera plant to substitute your commercial hair gel; rub or comb small amounts through your hair and style as usual.

Aloe gel is believed to provide relief from stomach disorders, kidney ailments, and headaches, just to name a few of aloe's internal healing benefits.

Using the yellow juice, called latex found just beneath the surface of the leaves can serve as a powerful laxative.

The gel from aloe vera also contains magnesium lactate that serves as an antihistamine, which may help to relieve sinus and chest inflammations caused by allergies.

Because aloe can have a strong laxative affect do not ingest the yellow latex found in the skin of the leaf or be cautious of the amount taken as a laxative. It is best to ingest aloe by gently blending the gel, taken from between the leafs, in a blender with juice or water.

So whats my verdict? I use it often and will continue too! I love it as a natural moisturizer, but only get the pure kind, not the bottled kind with the preservatives.

This article is not intended to replace the diagnoses or treatment of a health care professional.
