Comment from Jasmine:


Okey so this video really me feel good. I can really see how my hair has changed. It looks so more fuller N compact than a few months ago.. Feels really good to see that my crown is looking N feeling healthier. Think that me trimming my ends helped some to. In this video I just used the homemade leave in conditioner n sealed w some Argan oil. Patience n getting to know ur hair are for me the 2 main things when it comes to hair transition. N ofc.. Stop comparing ur hair to others hair. I know it's hard but u just gotta accept that we have different hair textures. Some people have 2 different hair textures. No biggie. As long as u have ur own relationship to ur hair, u gon be good hun. luvthemcurls movement naturalsbelike nigerian embraceurhair homemade african afrohair hairjourney growing

Saturday.. Oh okay so I wanted to do some homemade products. So I tried to do this homemade leave in-conditioner. Like the last one I did. But instead of just using water I used 1 half a water n 1 half coconut water. Just to give some more moisture. Let's see how my hair thinks about it. My hair liked the one I did before so my baby Betta luv this one ohπŸ˜πŸ‘embraceurhair naturalsbelike nigerian homemade african afrohair movement luvthemcurls

Comment from Jasmine:


I'm in a vibe right now. I don't know about u guys but sometimes i just feel like, what ever good things i do w my hair, i still don't really get satisfied with what I get. I think that sometimes I just compare my hair w other people's hair N all the "hair goals" on Instagram. BIG NO NO. I know now that dat can be really dangerous for u lol. I just gotta remember that we are all different, we all have different hair textures n we all have different hair journeys. So I've been reading this book that my mom let me loan. It's a couple of years old but it's so interesting. It's a book about hair. All kind of textures. From type 1 to type 4. I wanted to really learn about my type of hair. It's so easy that u listen too much on YouTube n Instagram. I think it's good to invest some time N learn more in other ways to😬. But that's just me tho. Just want wanted to share this bcos I know that some can relate to it. And it's Okey. We've all been there done dat. But remember we are all different n don't be too hard on ur hair. πŸ‘‘ luvthemcurls movement naturalsbelike nigerian embraceurhair hairjourney african afrohair

Okey today I wanted to share a video on how powerful AVC is (apple cider vinegar) . I LUV it. I always use it when I feel like my hair scalp is dry or itchy, also called dandruff lol. No shame in that. I think it's good to show the flaws to. I just want to share n show that there are some easy things u can do by urself to solve ur problem. This may not work for everyone but hey at least give it a try πŸ™. Lol I got so frustrated about my heat damage to that I have in some places so I just spontaneously cut em off.

Simplicity. Yeah. Sometimes is nice when u don't really need to do that much to ur hair. Sometimes I just like my hair in its natural state. No defined curls. No nothing. Just simple. BUT this is just me, I do like to change the hair n luv that u can change ur hair into Different textures. But sometimes u just want it simple πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ. I used 3 simple products. The basic. Aloe vera. Homemade hair gel. N jojoba oil. To seal all that moisture. Simplicity. Yup.

Comment from Jasmine:


Okey so today was the day Jasmine trimmed her own ends by herself for the first time. I was Hella nervous. No lie.It's still quite sensitive when it comes to cutting my hair. But hey healty hair before length. I still have some heat damage n especially at the end of my hair so Hey it was about time. Well u can't really see that big of a change but I could feel after I cut the ends that my hair felt much thicker N it was so much easier to detangle the hair. And u can see that I didn't even cut that much. I just trimmed the ends. I would recommend doing this every 3 months, just to keep that fro nice n fresh 😍 luvthemcurls movement african embraceurhair naturalsbelike nigerian afrohair hairjourney

So the picture to the left is how my hair was i March. The one to the right is how my hair was in June. 3 months between. Its not a big change but u can see that my hair looks more thicker N more bouncy than the first pic. It's a nice feeling when u can see a Lil change in ur hair. Sometimes u don't really see it I real life, so plz my peeps, don't forget to take pictures during ur journey so u can look back n compare πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ. teamnatural naturalsbelike nigeria african embraceurhair afrohair curlyhair movement hairjourney

Comment from Jasmine:


I'm back lol. Well this whole week, I'm been rolling w the protective style I did n wig. no shame in dat fam. I knew I would be working a lot so I wouldn't have been able to put any attention in my hair. So I just put a wig on, that I did by myself btw lol all proud πŸ˜‚ n a scarf on. I have never really been a person that use wig on a regular basis. But hey my hair felt so soft n nice after a whole week with the wig N protection. Like that's a good option when u know u won't be able to maintain the hair N give that hair luv.(but personally i would just do this for 1 week maximum) I was scared my edges would damage but I made sure I used the homemade edge controller. Well hey now the fro is back n I need to trim them ends😩..(this weekend project) That's Hella emotional for me πŸ˜‚. luvthemcurls movement african embraceurhair naturalsbelike afro nigeria growing

Comment from Jasmine:


So today I felt that my scalp needed a hot oil treatment. My scalp is quite sensitive N gets dry,so it need that's extra moisture. I used coconut oil, olive oil N small shea butter for carrier oils. I used tea tree oil n peppermint for essential oil. I personally like N think that these oils works for my scalp best. N it leaves a nice mint smell afterwards to πŸ˜€πŸ˜€. 1. I usually play around N try different protective styles before I start. I feel that I save time n I get a better vision on what hairstyle I want. Well that's just me πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ. 2. I section my hair. Wash it with a good shampoo that is kind N not cruel to your hair. I used this cheap scalp massage thing during the shampooing. 2 in 2.u get the massage n ur scalp gets cleaned. 3. Section the hair, sprayed hot water on the scalp, for the pores to open up. Applied the oil. Had it in for 30-40 min. 4. Rinsed it out. I used the african black soap w citrus only. No shampoo. That's why i luv the african soap. It cleans ur scalp n hair without drying it out. And then some jojoba conditioner. Rinse that out to with cold water as a final step. Yaay. luvthemcurls movement naturalsbelike nigerian afro embraceurhair embraceit african

So today I chose to do the "maybe u should put ur hair in a bun instead" hairstyle lol just made that up, but that was literally the mood I was in. 1. Sprayed my hair w (cold) water mixed w some tea tree oil. 2. Finger comb it. Some curl cream n then seal it with argan oil. 3. Let it air dry a little. 4. Take that afro comb n give ur hair some volume 😍 There u go, no bad vibes hun luvthemcurls embraceurhair naturalsbelike african nigerians luvthefro movement nobadvibeshun

Here's my wash routine. 1. I wash it w schampo. 2. Apply the homemade mask. Let it sit for 30 min. 3. Rinse. 4. Apple cider vinegar treatment. ( it's so good for dry scalp N dandruff. I CAN'T do my wash days without ACV. ) 5. I don't really like the smell after the vinegar so I just rinse w some african soap w a citrus touch. Jusy like a final little step. Not for cleaning the scalp or so. Just to give my hair a nice smell. And that's why i luv this african soap. It doesn't dry out my hair. 6. After that i just put some leave in N seal it w oil N then did two flat twist. Easy nah. luvthemcurls naturalsbelike homemade embraceurhair hairwashroutine

Comment from Jasmine:


Lol the days before hair wash I usually just play around w mi hair. Trying different easy to do hair styles. In this video I used cold water N tea tree oil and sprayed that directly on my scalp. Like I said before my scalp n hair really goes with dat. N like Always. I massage my scalp to get that blood circulation going. N then i just played w different styles that I can have without really doing much to it. Perfect to wear the days before hair wash day, when the curls ain't on point lol embraceurhair naturalsbelike luvthemcurls curlyhair afrohair movement

One thing that my edges appricate is this homemade edge controller w peppermint. Peppermint stimulate the hair scalp = hair growth. N then I just use a Old tooth brush to help "massage" the scalp.
