Hair and Face Products/Routine

So i want to start off with the most important thing of all.

A HUGE, thank you to my new followers, it means a huge deal to thank you!

As you all now it is technically winter..according to the weather man. Now i don't want to be abandoning this good hurrr of mine or my skin so 'amma' protect it..'yah get meh?'

Starting with my hair.
Normally i always either wear half head weave on ( which means i leave out the front of my hair) or extensions,but i find that my hair is happier with weaves.

So every week, normally a Sunday or a Saturday, because i prefer to leave a full day i do the following;

I prepoo (before shampoo) my hair with this hair oil, it has coconut, amla,lemon,henna etc, i have used this before but brought it recently and mahhnn the price has gone up were i buy it, so next time ill get it cheaper from paks cosmetics. So i just rub it allover my natural hair.

Then i plop a little of Castor oil on my scalp and ends of my hair, if you don't know Castor oil promotes hair growth and its is incredibly thick so you can mix it with other oils , i don't.

However every other week i would use this conditioner after the washing of the prepoo, and just wrap my hair up. Its a protein conditioner so if very frequent its not good,so u gotta balance it out.

If i have allot of build up on my hair i would use this shampoo, i mostly use is when i take out my weave on.

Normally i use this one as i do use heat on y hair 2 a week or so, and i do use it on my weave on which is Remy hair so i can do anything to it. The shampoo is not drying at all i believe, but then again i prepoo (:

This is what my hair looks like in conditioner, to those who think i relax my hair, which i don't, as i am a transitioner, i have been for about more than a year. Its tough, but way worth it!

For the conditioner i might use this if i feel my hair is itchy 0r has 'THE FLAKES'
But to be honest i can budget for this bottle all the time at £6 or so...hmmph!

But normally it has to be this, which i use on both my weave and hair, which smell great and feel creamy, and makes my hair feel sooo much manageable.

After all of that jazz, i don't dry my hair, i leave it wet and add my heat protectant(tresemme), and mango and olive moisturizer(elasta qp)then blow dry.

Sorry so long :)

Now for the FACE.

I have changed up my routine because i finished all my last products. So now i have gone back to what i used to use ages ago which worked for me.

Pronounced 'du du oh soon'. Yes so many pronouced it wrong, but if your african you might know your grandmother or maybe your mother to use this. This is ancinct wives traditon, i guess this is there all rounder soap, used for hair, skin, body. Used to treat skin and hair conditones.
But i only use it on my face no other, in britan more beauty supplly stores have been selling it. I used to get ut for 50P UNTIL....some punk had to go and up the price to £1.70. not feeling it.

So great soap, leaves my skin feeling looking nice, but it is a must to use a rich moisteriser, and your good to go. Its got all sort of natural ingreadients, Palm oil, lemon, aloe vera, plantian ash,coco ash, shea.

Ive limited this to using it once a day.

I also use the castor oil yet again, after washing my face whist wet to lock in the moisture, i rub it all over, like a mini facial, take a warm flannel and let the heat penetrate then wipe off..ahhh you will notice a diffence. Plus its good on your lashes and brows.

Then finally a toner that contains no nasty alchol, leaves my skin smooth ready for moisturiser, i like it allot, more than my simple toner i used a while ago.

This was very long , but i had to get it all in there.
What are you guys using?
