2015 Relaxed Hair Regimen – My henna regimen {Dr_fomsky}

January 7, 2015

For a background information, this is a description of my hair: Relaxed hair. I leave my relaxer on for 15 – 20 minutes before rinsing it off. This time includes the application AND the smoothing time. High porosity. This means that my hair easily absorbs moisture but also loses it easily. On the other hand, if you have low porosity hair, it means that your hair doesn’t easily absorb moisture…

2014 hair goals reviewed + LESSONS LEARNED {Dr Fomsky}

January 5, 2015

At the beginning of 2014, I had certain goals which I will review below: Goal 1: If my hair thinning doesn’t show any obvious improvement, I will go see a dermatologist. My hair is no longer thinning and I think that the thinning areas are filling in.

January 3, 2015

Rhassoul clay: It was a nice product to experiment with but I am trying to streamline my regimen and it just doesn’t fit in. PLUS it is extremely hard to rinse out (in my opinion). Ayurvedic powders – brahmi and alma. The same thing I said about rhassoul clay applies to my ayurvedic products. Regular henna: My hair was becoming too red and I don’t have time to do henna…

Hair techniques I tested in 2014 {Dr Fomsky}

January 2, 2015

Blow drying: I enjoyed learning how to blow dry my hair using a method I saw on YouTube by Reniece TV. I will only do this occasionally because it takes me too long.
