1. Commenced by dividing my hair into tiny sections as I had not washed my hair for the past 2 weeks. Sprayed the roots liberally with Mane N Tail Detangler; massaged thoroughly & left to dry before detangling. Once I was done, slathered JBCO liberally on each section, covered my hair with a shower cap overnight.
2. Next morning, proceeded to clarify in sections; rinsed & left to dry.
3. I applied Aubrey Organic GBP to my ends & Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner to my roots and mid-length. It’s a bonus that this one litre bottle is fitted with a pump which makes product dispensing easier. It’s a thick condish & a little goes a long way.
4. Covered my hair with a shower cap & sat under my heat cap for an hour before rinsing out. Result was fantastic with my hair deeply moisturized without any mushy texture.
5. Wrapped my hair in a cotton towel for 10 minutes before sealing with Tresemme Split Remedy; Biolage Advanced Matrix Fibrestrong; Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum & pea sized amounts of JBCO.
6. Cross wrapped my hair & tied a silk scarf to lay my edges flat. This morning I took my hair out & proceeded to comb in sections….not one single strand was left on my comb. It was a pleasant experience & my hair smells heavenly.
7. I will be plaiting in corn rows for the week as I’ve gotten my wigging groove on.
Q: Can I oil my scalp after using peppermint oil?
A: It is always important to bear in mind that Peppermint Oil is a potent oil and it is necessary to dilute it with a carrier oil such as JBCO, Jojoba or any other oil before direct application. At no point in time should you use it directly on your scalp. Once you have applied, there is no need to use any other oil on your scalp as there’s just so much your scalp can take without resulting in buildup. Remember your scalp secrete its’ own oil as well. A little goes a long way.
Q: Can I overlap texlaxed hair?
A: Overlapping occurs when your stylist applies relaxer to previously relaxed hair. If done frequently, it results in thinning hair, loss of volume and hair breakage. To prevent this, it is important you coat relaxed hair with JBCO or Chi Silk Infusion (whichever applies).

Exciting moments are here. Enjoy your weekend ladies!!!
Ladies it’s that time of the month and the import window for the month is open.
How does it work?
Based on your requirement, kindly send in a list of the items you’d like to order for and I’ll revert back with the prices and mode of payment. Once payment notification is received, your orders will be placed immediately.
So when will my orders arrive?

For Ladies who’d like to place an order from individual manufacturers listed below, it’s important you take a decision on the products you want on time as these manufacturers often require additional 3-5days to process orders and once you factor in transit and delivery timelines, some products might not arrive on time (Hair Trigger Elixir, Hairveda Sitrinillah, NJoy Sulfur Hair Growth Oil, Bee Mine Deep Conditioners, Darcy’s Botanicals, Vanilla Silk Dreams and a whole host of other individual manufacturers).
Please note that the import window closes by March 10th.
How do I place my order?
Simply fill in the form below and I’ll revert with required information for each individual order.
Q: What should my dilution ratio be when using Peppermint/Rosemary Oil?
A: It is important to note that essential oils are potent and it is advisable to use them in small quantities. I often advise ladies who have purchased these oils to obtain an empty plastic bottle; pour 3 capful of Peppermint/Rosemary Oil & also pour in 1/2 a bottle of Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Shake the bottle and leave it in the darkest part of your cupboard for a week so the oils can blend together before you commence usage.
To other news, I will like to thank and appreciate all the ladies who participated in the Import Window – African Edition. I am humbled at the trust you have all displayed without meeting or knowing me personally. Your orders have shipped out and tracking numbers have been sent to all the ladies to personally track their shipments. I am tracking as well….you need to see how excited the ladies were once they were able to track their shipments. I share that joy as well and can’t wait to see your pictures once the items arrive.
Thank you & enjoy your weekend.
If you have observed that your hair is weighed down, not responding to treatments, extra greasy or it’s not just behaving, then it’s time to whip out your clarifying shampoo.Product build up is a common occurrence due to the kind of products we use on our hair. Deep conditioners, moisturizers, carrier oils can leave product deposit on our hair over time. This build up can cause your hair to be greasy, dull, heavy, limp and non-responsive. What a clarifying shampoo does is to remove this deposit giving your hair the fresh start it deserves.
How often should you clarify?
If you use a lot of hair products like hairspray, hair gels e.t.c you might need to clarify on a weekly basis but if you are not heavy handed with the hair products you use, then you can restrict use to once a month.
How do you clarify?
Start with a quarter sized amount of clarifying shampoo and work it into your scalp with a light massage for 60 seconds. Depending on the amount of oil and product build up on your hair, it might not lather much, but that’s okay. Rinse very well. Take a smaller amount of shampoo (the longer your hair, the more you’ll need to use) and work the shampoo into your hair. You will notice lots of lather in your hair. Let the shampoo sit on your head for 2minutes (you can use that time to shave your legs cos that’s what I do). It’s important to let the shampoo sit for the recommended number of minutes to allow product build up release. Once time is up, rinse very well.
You can now proceed to use your regular deep conditioning treatment (however be generous with application) since the clarifying shampoo does not contain moisturizing elements that regular sulfate free shampoo has.
