How I’ve Use Goat Milk For My 4b/4c Hair

You can find goat milk at your supermarket or Whole Foods. If you can’t find it in liquid form you can certainly look for the powdered version as well.

I’ve been adding  Goat milk to my conditioner treatments, my deep conditioner treatments, and I have a small bottle I keep in the refrigerator of 1 part goat milk to 3 parts water. Once, sometimes twice a week, I’ll use my goat milk water mixture as my moisturizer, followed by my leave in conditioner, sealing it with coconut oil.

You can  add this to your  shampoos as well. Goat milk is certainly good for your skin as well so you can add it to  your shea  or cocoa butter preparations for hair and skin too.

Results After Adding Goat Milk To My Regimen:

My hair feels softer than usual. I feel it helps in keeping moisture in my hair longer. I could go a full day of wearing my twist out and by the end of the day, my hair still feels soft and moisturized. That’s not the case of heavy workout at the gym days.

Definitely less breakage and shedding. Feels stronger and looks so much shinier.

I will be keeping Goat Milk in my hair regimen. I’m going to be mixing goat milk into my shea butter that I use on my body and after a month or so I’ll let you know the results I find of using this on my skin.

If you’ve used goat milk before for either hair or skin or both. Please share your experience in the comments below!

Sealing In The Moisture: Oils Curly Girls Must Have

Hey Curlfriends,

We curly girls know how important it is for us to make sure our hair is and stays moisturized. If not, our hair can become dry and prone to breakage.  A HUGE no no! The best sealant you can use to lock in the moisture is a natural oil. I find this to be true at least for my hair type, which is 4b/4c.

Below are a list of Oils that I use in my hair

Olive Oil 

Olive Oil

Olive Oil

First on my list of favourite oils is olive oil. Extra Virgin Olive Oil knows how to WORK the wonders in my hair.

  • Olive oil works great as a hot oil treatment.
  • It’s a really good cheap oil for sealing in moisture.
  • Protects the keratin in hair which increases shine and strength.
  • It penetrates the hair strands by 25% with moisture.

Avocado Oil

Avocado Oil

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is a little heavier. Certainly heavier than coconut oil and olive oil. I add this into my homemade “Silky Shea Butter Soufflé” and in my “Super Hydrating Deep Conditioner Recipe” Helps tremendously with moisture retention over the winter months.

Some great benefits as to why I add avocado oil

  • It contains Vitamins A and D, protein, magnesium and amino acids. These are all essential for hair health, strength and growth.
  • It makes for a great deep treatment when mixed with your favourite conditioner.

Jojoba Oil 

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil

I’ve been using this oil in my Silky Shea Butter soufflé recipe. Since jojoba is readily accepted by the scalp and doesn’t mess with the scalps natural balance, I use it to I’ve also started using it if I quickly need to smooth my hair down, if my coconut oil is still hardened because of the cold air temperature. I adore the sweet smell of it. Reasons to love it include:

  • Jojoba oil seals in moisture.
  • It increases hair strength from inside out.
  • It adds amazing shine to the hair.
  • It smooths the cuticles and promotes hair growth.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

I simply love coconut oil,  and works great as a sealant  for my hair. I use it to seal in the moisture, as well as to deep condition. I do prefer Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.

I use it as an after shower moisturizer ( add to a spray bottle with a few drops of ylang ylang essential oil). Works great and doesn’t leave my skin nor my looking and feeling greasy.

More Coconut Oil added benefits….

  • Using coconut oil on the hair and scalp can promote hair growth, reduce breakage and strengthen the hair shaft.
  • It contains saturated fatty acids and Vitamin E which is great for the hair.
  • It adds amazing shine to the hair.
  • It can improve a dry scalp, and hair loss.
  • It’s light and non-greasy, and can actually penetrate the hair shaft.

Castor Oil

Castor Oil

Castor Oil

Being very active, from exercising to outdoor activities, the elements can cause excessive drying to my hair and scalp., I use a mixture of olive oil and castor oil and my oil rinse after I my shampoo and conditioning treatment.

  • Rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids.
  • Provides the minerals needed for strong hair growth.
  • Helps in treating split ends.
  • Tons of moisture.
  • Fights the outdoor elements by coating the hair.

These are just a few of the oils that I currently use and that work well with my hair texture and curl pattern. I would say, if you are trying to decide on an oil to include in your regime, consider the following:

HAIR TIP:

Check your nails. Hanging nails will damage hair. Always make sure your nails are smooth and even before hair styling

Things to Think About: 

If you have very  thick or tightly coiled (4b/4c) hair, your strands might benefit more from a heavier oil, such as avocado or castor oil. Or if you have looser curls, Coconut Oil or Sweet Almond Oil might just do the trick.

Cost – Some oils can be quite expensive, yet still give you the same benefits as others. You just have to find the right affordable alternatives.

Remember your hair is your hair. You just have to experiment and figure out what works for you.

The bottom line is to enjoy the process of learning your hair and being natural.

So which oil do you use to seal in moisture, and how is it working for you?

NATURAL HAIR HARD TRUTH: LENGTH vs. HEALTH

Hey Curlfriends,

With so many naturals on YouTube with long hair, and of course, the major companies, milking the natural hair emergence, constantly advertising and showing long hair naturals, it’s no wonder the focus for many naturals is length.

When I first started my natural hair journey, I was all about the length and that was my focus. What products should I use, styles I should wear, and so on. When my hair wasn’t growing as fast as I thought it should, I became frustrated and a couple of times though about just going back to a relaxer and calling it a day. That the natural hair journey wasn’t for me.

Then I realized I was looking at this the wrong way. Yes, I wanted natural long hair but, I should be more concerned and focused on the health of my hair. Believe me, your hair will grow. Just accept what your hair has in store for you as long as you’re taking care of it and keeping it healthy.

Wanting to obtain longer natural hair is a great way to motivate your natural hair journey. It shouldn’t be THE top motivational factor in your natural hair journey. Having healthy hair and understanding how to maintain healthy natural hair, in my opinion, should be the most important.

I want you to think about it like this….

When someone is on the road to losing weight, the healthy way, they change their daily eating habits. They exercise. Everyday is one step at a time. Their focus is being healthy. By them focusing on changing their eating and exercise habits, they will lose weight. We know, not everyones body type or shape is the same, therefore, the results of one person losing weight will not be the results of another person losing weight.

This is the same with your hair.

DETANGLING TIP:  

Finger detangling on 4b/4c hair is a great way to lessen the breakage and shedding, and helps to preserve healthier hair strands.

Your genetics are YOUR genetics. You can’t change that. So embrace what your natural hair journey has in store for you. Focus on the health and condition of your natural tresses. You might be pleasantly surprised at the results.

FYI – I watch so many of my natural “Curlfriends” videos on YouTube to learn what works, what doesn’t work, techniques and overall to support and embrace the change. We CURLY GIRLS are making a statement to the world. That it’s ok to BE NATURAL. That wearing your natural hair out in publicis BEAUTIFUL, and that BEAUTY IS what you make it.

 

Happy HEALTHY Hair Journey

Your Curlfriend,
