Post Relaxer Growth Management (phase 1)

I’m six weeks post my relaxer and the growth is starting to mess with my hair routine. My routine, which I’ve been using since I created it 3 years ago is the Back to Health routine. It’s a basic hair routine that has given me the discipline and tools to shampoo, condition and moisturise my […]

My ends are healthy - no splits, no dryness. They are just thinner and fewer in existence than the healthier texlaxed hair. This is why I'd like them to go

This allows your hair to retain some of its original texture and more thickness. Right now I’m battling with […]

How To: Effectively Moisturise Hair

Hi Ladies, Through my ‘Ask Phro’  page, a few women have asked for a tutorial on effectively moisturising their hair.

Thoughts on transitioning (Texlax Journey Begins)

Hi Ladies, A few months ago, I was determined to transition to natural hair in 2013. Why? I really loved the hairstyles that were coming out of ‘Go Natural’ blogs.
