If this isn’t the best feeling ever! Especially when someone does it for you! Yasssssssss! So I decided to give my protective style a break and give myself a scalp massage. What is the benefit of a scalp massage?!?! Well, it helps to promote hair growth by stimulating the blood flow to your hair follicles, lessens dandruff, strengthens hair,offset grey hair, and it’s a good stress reliever.

How do you scalp massage? There is no correct method to massaging your scalp. Get an oil of your choice apply it to your scalp and go to work. Make sure you’re not using your nails. Massage with your finger tips. Doing this distributes the oil all over the hair.

Affordable spots to buy hair products

Posted on

Hair products can be very pricey if you don’t know where to look. Some spots have sales, others just sale the product cheaper than the other place. Here are a few places that are pretty decent when it comes to buying products.

Walgreens : I frequent here a lot and pretty much every time I’m in there someone’s brand is on sale

Home: you can find a lot of products around your home to make DIY products especially oils. Those oils that you cook with ( i.e. Olive Oil ) can be used in your hair.

Your local Grocery Store: in order to buy those natural oils for your hair you can get them from your local grocery store.

The World Wide Web: certain sites like ikatehouse.com which is a really cute site for hair accessories only this site doesn’t sell hair products. Other sites like Amazon, Ebay and Etsy are great for products especially if your looking for your fav product at a cheaper price.

The Flea Market: if you like raw Shea butter this is the best place to find it the majority of the venders sell it and you can compares prices or get it cheaper by bargaining. I do it all the time!

Target: just like Walgreens and other pharmacy stores has a wide variety of natural hair products.

Whole Foods: these stores are great for buying natural hair products especially when you want to make you own.

Well I decided to go natural about seven months ago. I was tired of spending money on perms weaves and wigs. I was one of the types of women that spent 400 bucks or more on a good sew in and virgin hair! I always got compliments don’t get me wrong… But it was too much hassle and way too much money! After a lot of contemplating and YouTube I decided I wanted to make a drastic change. So I went for the big chop. Much to my bf’s dismay lol. And I’ve never looked back since! I looked for my hair type and saw mahogany curls and followed how to care for my curls, and I’ve loved every single curl ever since. I learned to love myself for who I was through embracing my own natural hair. I looked online and learned how to do my own protective style with Marley twists. I love the variations of hair styles I can do with my hair. I still haven’t put heat on it maybe when I do my length check in a year I will. But I love it and surprisingly enough my bf loves it and loves everything about my hair. I def have no regrets especially now that I only spend 30 bucks a month on my hair ;-). Def not looking back
