Ready to party.. lol
Hey Fellow Nats! It’s been a while since my last blog. Sorry about that, been a little busy with straightening out my life. Now I’m back. So, a few weeks back, someone asked me how to avoid shrinkage and how to stretch out her hair. I provide her a few tips from CurlyNikki’s website:
I decided to attempt the Coconut Milk Treatment to soften and stretch my coils. The treatment asked for:
Today, I went out to ShopRite to buy a can of coconut milk, grapeseed oil, and lime. I had the other ingredients at home. I decided to use grapeseed oil instead of coconut oil because what I found out about it. It protects from hair damage, promotes growth, helps get ride of dandruff, keeps hair moisturized, protects from heat and has a lot of nutrients. Sounds what I’m looking for! (We’ll see).
Now mixing the ingredients! Mix everything except the cornstarch and make sure it’s really mixed! Now I brought a lime and squeeze the juice into the mixture. I would go against this. Reason. Well, the pulp gets into your hair and hard to rinse it out. I know! Now I used a little whisk to mix the concoction. Now on CurlyNikki it asked people to use half of a teaspoon of the constarch to the mixture until it thickens! I was pouring the constarch a teaspoon at a time mixing with the whisk and I realize it wasn’t thickening.
What? The constarch was making these small balls on the bottom of the bowl. So, I used my hands to smish them. After pouring (what I felt 1/4 of the box), the mixture was NOT thickening. I was frustrated, so I washed my hair before applying the mixture. I did not section my hair like the instructions said to do. I grabbed the liquidy substance and applied it to my hair. then I poured the mixture into my hair and waited in the shower for 30 minutes.
Now, next time I going to make it thicker because it is easier to do whatever for 30 minutes. I washed the treatment out of my hair with Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo, since its sulfate free. Them condition it with Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque. I had to rinse my hair until the pulps of the lime were out. Results?
You can still see some pulp in my hair. Aw, mannnn!
You can see my curls! Must admit the shrinkage did not go away. BUT, it did soften my hair which I love. I will try this treatment one more time. This time I will pour the constarch until its a paste.

Black History Month fact #27
Haiti was the first free Black nation of the western hemisphere.
The Haitian revolution actually began in the village of Guakayman (sp?) on August 14, 1791, where ambitious Haitians thirsty for freedom sacrificed a black pig during a voudun ceremony. This ritual spiritually catapulted Haitians to fight to the death until they earned their liberation as the first successful slave revolt in all of history.
We all know who Toussaint L’Overture was, but what do we know of Jean-Jacques Dessalines (above)? L’Overture was the organizational genius of Haiti’s fight for freedom, but it was Dessalines who declared independence on January 1st, 1804 after L’Overture was captured by France. Dessalines after became the first ruler of Haiti before being assassinated in 1806.
for more on the history of Haiti, see the film Haiti and the Dominican Republic: An Island Divided.
