Hydration Delight

I am transitioning to natural hair and found my hair was dry in between wash days despite using the LCO method mid-week. I found about this product on a website providing information about the best types of products to use on natural hair. I have not been disappointed. It helps to keep my hair hydrated, juicy and moisturised in between wash days. It will be definitely be one of my staples.

Life changer!!

I have dry/fine 3b/3c hair and normally feel like a need to weigh it down with leave-ins to get *any* kind of moisture! Boy was I wrong! I used this *only* ( with a tiny bit of butter to seal my ends) and my hair is moisturised + bouncy + voluminous for the first time ever!

A must-try

A great cleanser, but still so gentle on the hair. It smells great too.

Best curl products ever!!!

After trying numerous curly hair products I am so thrilled I’ve found this! My hair was feeling lank and frizzy (thanks to lockdown no haircuts!) but these products brought my curls back to life from the 1st use!!!

Hot vs. Cold Water - Which one is better for my natural hair?

Hot vs. Cold Water - Which one is better for my natural hair?

Both hot and cold water provide benefits to natural hair. We can effectively extract the benefits by applying them in a balanced way to our regimen:

When Should You Use Warm Water?


Warm water should be used when cleansing your hair at the beginning of wash day. This is because warm water allows the cuticles of the hair, and pores on the scalp to open up to help remove any dirt, residue or buildup from the scalp and hair. This is similar to washing your face with warm water, as the warm water opens up the pores to remove any oil and dirt. However, cons to warm water is that it does create frizz and makes the hair dry, so warm water should ideally just be used when cleansing the hair.


When Should You Use Cold Water? 


Cold water should be used when rinsing out the conditioner in your hair, at the end of wash day. This is because cold water closes the cuticles and pores in the scalp and also adds luster and shine, which is due to the closed cuticles. It truly helps in sealing in the hair’s moisture and also helps in clumping the hair together (ie coils and curls). However, while warm water creates frizz, cold water tends to flatten the hair.

Now you know how water temperatures affect our hair - you're good to manage your wash day to achieve that perfect, beautiful outcome!
