NuGro Leave in Spray w/Moisturizer

Hey Gang, Hope you all had a lovely holiday. I know I did and I'm still pooped but I need to seriously do my hair. So a couple of months ago I ordered a NuGro kit out of desperation in this battle with my alopecia. That spot was the worst I've seen it ever in all my years and this time it seemed like NOTHING helped. I read rave reviews on the forums and then saw they had Ateeyah on their page and checked out some of her videos. I was convinced and if I wasn't, like I said I was desperate to try anything. I ordered the kit with the shampoo, deep condish and leave in spray. What I can tell you is I love, love, love this leave-in. It is truly moisturizing and I don't have to moisturize and seal everyday when using it. Let me tell you something else, I have yet to discover another product that makes my new growth (ng) so soft manageable and able to be tamed. I actually prefer using it from 6 wks post on b/c of this effect. It's like it takes it from a coarse brillo texture to a cottony soft field of fluff. I just got a new bottle in the mail about a week and a half ago and believe you me this is a new staple. Oh and lets not talk about how I can run my finger pads across my alopecia patch with out needing a bandaid. The hair has finally softened up and this product helped loosen up my tight scalp in the area. Now the shampoo and deep condish are good as well but have protein so I stay away from they and use once in a blue. If you have had some serious alopecia issues and are at your wits end, or are simply suffering from dry parched hair or unmanageable new growth, I suggest you check this out. I felt like I was at the point of no return but guess who's back!

Africa's Best Ultimate Herbal OIl

I purchased this oil about 2 wks ago and automatically fell in love with the scent. I was out of grapeseed oil and had been eyeing it in Walmart and figured hey why not. I don't regret this purchase at all. How can you when it's about 3 bucks? Plus it smells sooo good, like baby oil. I've been using it to seal and will try it as a hot oil treatment soon. I love the natural ingredients so that's a plus, my only complaint is it doesn't penetrate as easily as I thought it would (prob b/c my hair isn't big on olive oil), so I have to be extra light when using it. Anyhow so far so good, it comes 2nd to my love of grapeseed oil. It's for use for bath, body, hair and scalp. If your looking for a cheap but quality fix I def recommend you try it out. Me likey!

Ingredients: Soy Bean Oil , Walnut Seed Oil , Kiwi Fruit Extract , Olive Fruit Oil , Castor Seed Oil , Sesame Seed Oil , Jojoba Seed Oil , Carrot Seed Oil , Sweet Almond Oil , Tocopheryl Acetate , Safflower Oil , Calendula Extract , Yarrow Extract , Cucumber Extract , Carrageenan Extract , Ginseng Extract , Sage Extract , Comfrey Extract , Aloe Extract , Fragrance

Almost Time

I am officially 9 weeks post and patiently (ok impatiently) waiting to relax my hair. Not sure if I'm gonna relax next weekend or the weekend after. The dilemma is my 10th anniversary is next saturday so I wanted a fresh one, but we don't have any big plans so I figured I can get the extra week of stretching in and relax b/4 thanksgiving. Not sure. It'll be bitter sweet however. I have mucho new growth (ng) but my alopecia patch is just not good. It's the biggest its ever been and I'm not happy about it!!! On the plus side it's growing back but it's way behind the length of my hair. It's the lenght of a twa and since my hair is on its way to APL (couple of months, hopefully), I think my only option is to add a track to it after this relaxer. I tried to swear off weaves but what's a girl 2 do. One track won't hurt, and it'll add the length to that spot for special occasions when I want to wear my hair out! I began miconazole nitrate in hopes of getting rapid growth, but I'll post on that later when I have a couple months of usage. I have a couple of products to review in the near future. I'll post more on them after the next relaxer. My hair is in a good state right now (sans alopecia) and I don't wanna throw off the balance b/4 the relaxer. So stay tuned more to come. Have a gr8 weekend!

PR - DevaCare One Condition

Okay so I've been on the hunt for a moisturizer that I absolutely L.O.V.E. I have some that I really like, but none of them really rock my hair world. Well after the henna treatment w/no condish, I had to run out and find some good d.c's to really restore the moisture. I racked up my arsenal in order to avoid any breakage or protein overload and I decided to try this new one for me, DevaCare One Condition - No-fade ultra creamy conditioner. Now I tried this as a d.c. and thought it was o.k. When I rinsed out my hair I used it as a leave in and was somewhat impressed. The next time I did my hair w/one of my more "normal routine products", I noticed that my hair still seemed rather dry after it air dried. I was out of my NTM Silk Touch Leave In and opted to try the DevaCare OC since i felt it could use the extra conditioning in the moisturize and seal step. Well, shiver me timbers, my hair felt so soft, moisturized, manageable. I was one happy camper. I haven't even picked up my olive oil cream or repurchased the NTM, I've been using DevaCare since September and it's great. No build up, no greasiness, just good old moisture. Now it's been almost 2 months, as I like to see effects over time in order to give a proper review and ladies and gents I am still in L.O.V.E. This is a new staple that I plan on using for the long haul (for Oh yeah and I did try it again as a d.c. and liked it better than the 1st attempt, so I will try again. Who know's maybe the 3rd times the charm and if so I'm def in for doubling my pleasure!!!
