|Olive Oil Infused Comb Designed to Combat Frizz!|
This "miracle comb" is said to use a special process of baking olive oil within the plastic as well as NANO. The outcome is a comb that allows for faster drying, and its micro-sized particles fill in the damaged hair to create a seamless surface inhibiting bacterial growth. It eliminates frizz, and is anti-static. It adds a natural soft shine without an oily feeling. This comb also recognizes where excess natural oil deposits are and redistributes them to a proper balance. it also works great for dry cuts by controlling fly away hair.
Available at Ricky's NYC.

I got a sample of this as part of a Phyto Sephora VIP gift box featuring this product, and I must say I am very happy with it's moisturizing properties and i have been spritzing on my length with concentration on the ends when I braid out at night. I have been sealing with a mixture of Cameilla oil and Castor oil and so far so good. I've gotten up to four good days of braid outs with this method which is great!

I'm sitting here waiting for my wet hair to dry enough so I can venture outside with my fedora on to do some shopping and have Thai for dinner. As my hair is getting longer and fuller it takes longer and longer to dry. The winds are howling outside and what I should have done is bunned it and went on about my business.
So while I'm sitting here, I finally broke down and got myself a bonnet hair dryer. This one is a good price ($119.00) and it has an adjustable stand which means I don't have to try to find a tabletop that is the right height and drag a chair to it. I can move it where I please! I also got my hair steamer from the same company last year and was very happy with the delivery time, free shipping and quality of the steamer. I'm working on balancing my porisity levels, moisture and strengthing routines as I saw some breakage last year around this time for not paying attention to it.

I did my monthly henna treatment today and I think I just might have nailed down a routine (finally) on how to do it with consistent results. I'm mixing about 6 tablespoons of henna with a strong tea of various things such as horsetail herbs, green tea, marshmallow root and let color develop over night. I added around a tablespoon and a half of rosemary infused avacado oil right before applying.
To minimize the dryness that can result from henna use,
I'm only painting the roots and scalp with a color brush the full strength mixture, then I mix the remaining 2 tablespoons into a thick deep conditioner to be applied to the rest of the hair. I plastic cap
and sit under my heat cap for 2 hours or so and then 2 without heat, rinse in tub, co-wash in shower with Aussie Moist and I'm done!
I tried out some new products this time around - Aveda's Be Curly and Kinky Curly's Knot today. I put in Kinky Curly first and then Be Curly over it. Not sure I like both together so I will have to try them alone. I will say that Be Curly does what it says. I did notice more curl definition and curl in general as my hair dried.
