Africare 100% Glycerin Review

Africare 100% Glycerin

Let me tell you ’bout my bestfrieeeend! It’s the awesome natural (and vegan) Africare 100% Glycerin. This stuff is literally all you could ever need to hydrate, condition and nourish your body from head to toe. Why? Because pure glycerin is like cutting out the middle man. If you look at the ingredients of any moisturizing product in your home (body and hair) you’ll spot glycerin somewhere high on the list.

What Are Your Hair Essentials?

Let’s keep the hair talk going, shall we? For your beauty challenge today we’re gonna spill the beans on our haircare essentials. I live in a top bun mostly out of convenience and laziness so I don’t use too many products to maintain and style my hair. See? There’s definitely a method to the madness here! I simply wash my hair, deep condition every once in a while and let it air dry before throwing it in a bun. Easy peasy!

In between washes, I like to do a little maintenance like moisturizing and sealing my ends to keep them hydrated and healthy. To moisturize, I use the African Pride Olive Miracle Leave-In Conditioner which has been a staple in my stash for years. The ultra hydrating formula almost feels like water on my hair–instantly making it moist and soft. Olive Miracle also gives me tons of slip so it’s great for detangling too. I then follow up with my Jamaican Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil to seal in that moisture and condition and nourish my hair. It’s thick but that stuff works! For an extra boost of moisture, I also like to co-wash with my Aussie Moist conditioner. It’s slip city and makes my hair super soft and shiny. Plus it smells really good too. Co-washing with this baby is a great way to give your hair an extra boost in the summer!

Want Long, Thick Hair? Try Jamaican Black Castor Oil!

Jamaican Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Can you believe that just adding a little Jamaican Black Castor Oil to your routine can completely transform your hair? You should! For centuries, Jamaican Black Castor Oil has been a hair care staple for many reasons. It’s extremely moisturizing, conditions and strengthens the hair and it increases hair growth. It’s pretty much a miracle oil!

I bought the Jamaican Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil many months ago and I’ve used it pretty much everyday since. In fact, I’ve already finished this bottle and went back to grab another. My relaxed hair is very thick and very dry so I’m always on the lookout for products that make my life a little easier and this is it. Since I’m always pretty busy and too tired (lazy) to really do anything to my hair I live in a high bun. Which is great for protecting my ends and retaining length but not so much for the edges over time if I’m not careful. However, I apply a little water and a dime sized amount of Jamaican Black Castor Oil to my edges everyday to keep them nice and healthy and prevent them from thinning out.

Healthy Hair Care: Moisturizing & Sealing

Healthy Hair Care Moisturize and Seal

When it comes to healthy hair it’s best to keep it simple. Sometimes the basics are all you need to maintain long, luxurious locks. One practice I swear by is moisturizing and sealing. From natural to relaxed it makes a world of difference in texture and length retention! By nature, curly hair is the driest type so it takes a little extra effort and TLC to keep them healthy and promote growth. As the name implies, moisturizing and sealing your hair is simply the process of moisturizing your hair and then sealing that moisture in.
