I’m Growing Out My Natural Hair

I’ve tried so many different hair products over the years, and not one managed to do a darn thing for my hair (aside from keeping it clean and semi-moisturized). There were times when I thought I was using a good product, but alas, they too failed me in my ultimate goal of long and healthy hair.

Yes, the truth is that, despite using moisturizers and conditioners, my hair was still parched, my scalp was still itchy, and growth had been non-existent.

So, to have some semblance of length, I rocked a lot of braids, twists, and crochet cornrows. And while these styles are known as “protective styling” techniques, none of them has managed to grow out my hair…

My hair has not grown beyond a certain point (to the bottom of my neck when stretched). I want my hair to be shoulder length or longer (when dry and curly) so, knowing that, I knew I had to call in the big guns and get products that are designed to grow stubborn, kinky, parched, and dry natural hair. My hair is basically trying to grow from a scalp that is dry and patched and itchy sometimes (and those are not good conditions). Maybe that’s why, no matter what I’ve previously tried, my hair stays the same length…

So I hit up Etsy, my go-to place for virtually everything (aside from food). And happily, I found EXACTLY what I was looking for.

What did I buy?

I purchased a range from a shop on Etsy called NaturalSisters. Not only do they sell online, but they also have a salon that’s founded and based in Harlem, New York!

So, I eagerly bought…

1. Natural Hair Growth Kit : *Large Size*

8 oz – Detox Shampoo

16 oz – Tea Tree Rosemary Treatment

4 oz – Mega Growth Elixir

2. Creamy Hot Oil Triple Threat Deep Conditioning Hair Masque

3. Protein and Honey Deep Conditioner Hair Mask

4. Frankincense & Myrrh Herbal Hot Oil Treatment

5. Creamy Leave-In Conditioner / Detangler

6. Leave In-Conditioner Spray

How do I use them?

Once per week (usually on Monday)…

I wash my hair with NaturalSisters Detox Shampoo and then I leave the NaturalSisters Tea Tree & Rosemary Deep Conditioner in my hair for 20 minutes before rinsing it out with warm water. Finally, I’ll apply my NaturalSisters Creamy Leave-In Conditioner / Detangler, detangling my hair with my fingers and then I apply the NaturalSisters Mega Growth Elixir to my scalp, rubbing and massaging my scalp thoroughly.

Once a week (on Wednesday)…

I apply NaturalSisters Frankincense & Myrrh Herbal Hot Oil Treatment to my scalp and hair, I put a shower cap on, and let it get a bit warm and misty for 20 minutes before rinsing it out with lukewarm water. After that, I spray in NaturalSisters Leave In-Conditioner Spray to my hair strands and NaturalSisters Mega Growth Elixir to my scalp.

Once a week (on Friday)…

I use NaturalSisters Creamy Hot Oil Triple Threat Deep Conditioning Hair Masque to my hair and scalp, I put on a shower cap, and I let it get steamy in my scalp for 20 minutes before rinsing it out and applying NaturalSisters Leave In-Conditioner Spray to my hair strands and NaturalSisters Mega Growth Elixir to my scalp.

Once a week (on Sunday)…

I wash my hair with NaturalSisters Detox Shampoo and then I use Protein and Honey Deep Conditioner Hair Mask for 20 minutes, leaving a shower cap on and letting it get steamy in there. After that, I’ll rinse it out and apply NaturalSisters Creamy Leave-In Conditioner / Detangler to my hair strands and NaturalSisters Mega Growth Elixir to my scalp.

Styling

I also like to use Cantu Shea Butter Moisturizing Curl Activator to bring life back into my hair between washes. I buy it in stores or online.

And that’s literally all the products that I’m putting in my hair right now!! I’m feeling good about it!

Now, onto the pictures. Please note that my hair does this annoying and mean thing called “shrinking.” It just can’t be helped. I look forward to meeting my very long hair!
