Detox Your Hair and Scalp
Fall is time to hit the reset button for beautiful hair and a healthy scalp. Why? Think about all the rigors your put it thru over the summer, swimming, sweating, pollution, heat (especially here in the Southwest), and product buildup. Clarifying your hair and detoxing dry rough lifeless hair is a must.

For centuries this clay has been used to draw out impurities and toxins from hair and scalp leaving natural hair detangled soft and smooth like nothing else.

Styling and Profiling
Strand Twist and Braided Updos - Not only are these time savers, but they give your scalp a chance to breather and allow your hair to grow much faster than when it’s unprotected. Make sure you your locks moisturized with a few pumps of this daily leave in moisturizer and your scalp itchy flaky free with this spray.
Natural Hair During Hat & Scarf Weather
During inclement weather my choice of head gear is a scarf. I can wear it as a fashion accessory and in the case of a sudden downpour, use it to cover two strand twist out. However you’re rocking your locs, if you like hats, make sure you get the right fit and its not too tight. Line your hats with silky material to combat friction and breakage (a little oil goes a long way too!).
Review Your LOC or LCO Method
Our hair needs change with the season. Now is a good time to notice if your LOC or LCO method is working for you.You may be surprised to find that you don’t need that heavy butter as much and a lighter hair oil is just right for you. Or maybe you finally noticed that you moved your low or high porosity hair towards a more middle of the road state.
Here’s the real deal ladies: We are one of a kind beings and each hair on our head is different from the next…so, YOU really have to determine if your hair responds better to oil before a cream OR just oil OR just cream. You may be surprised to find that you can get away with just a liquid leave in moisturizer with oil (as the LO in your regimen).
Here’s my suggestion after cleansing and conditioning your hair, while it’s damp section your hair and do a test. You may be surprised to find that you have a mixture of hair that requires different application of products.
