- Jamaican Black Castor Oil. A fellow nappy, Indigo, stopped by my site and suggested I try Jamaican black castor oil as a solution for my hair thinness. I did some research first then purchased some from JBC Distributors for about $10. I like it even if it doesn't help with my thinness. The oil is nice for moisture and shine. It's also supposed to be good for itching and flakiness. I also purchased some 2oz samples from Olde Jamaica Beauty Products. I'll review all of these things in another post.
- Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner. This is what I use to detangle my hair after I shampoo. It leaves my hair soft and manageable. It has great slip so it makes detangling a breeze. I use it every day when I twist my hair up for the night.
- MegaTek. I purchased MegaTek back in July when I had locs and I first noticed my thinning edges. It was suggested to me for hair growth by another blogger. I used it consistently for about a month and then stopped. Not really sure why I stopped. So I've started using it again every night just in the front when I twist for the night. I've added the castor oil to help with the dryness that the product can sometimes cause.
What else have I done?
I trimmed my ends last week (Friday). I took at least an inch off and it ended up shorter than I expected but I'm ok with it. The above picture shows the trimmed fro. Nobody has noticed the difference but I can tell. I don't think I can do my humps and bump style anymore but I haven't tried it yet.
I also added some color Saturday. Dark and Lovely Deep Copper:
The color did not come out like that.
