Needed a change

I changed my hair colour. I felt it was time for a change. My hair is growing back after I have starting washing my hair with Revita hair shampoo, available from and I am very pleased so far with it. I have noticed that my crown of my hair which was thinning is getting thicker. Anyway back to the colours, I used L'Oreal Majirel shade 7.43 and L'Oreal Majirouge 6.66 and I mixed with 40 vol developer, plus I added avocado oil, castor oil and extra virgin oil. I was happy with the colour, also I got John Frieda radiant red conditioner and Ion colour protect conditioner. My hair did feel a little dry, but as I spray my hair with Hawaiian Silky Miracle 14 in 1 and I rinsed daily, my hair was moist again, plus I am aware of the colour fading, particularly red colour, so hence I used John Frieda radiant red conditioner as a conditioning rinse. I shall see how my colour keeps during the weeks and months.

The latest

I have started using Revita stimulating hair shampoo and conditioner. I ordered it last Thursday before 3.30 p.m. and I received my package on Saturday morning, from I was very pleased of the fact that there was no delivery charge.

A young lady who I follow on tumblr, and she mentioned that her hair really grown over the summer, she washed it twice weekly. I have my hair in a protective style, my Chinese bumps and I have washed my hair twice so far. I find that my hair is really clean, however after I put my Castor oil and Hawaiian silky 14 in 1, miracle worker, it is very moist, another product I use is Karen's beautiful body, Sweet Ambrosia and it feels moist for days.

Another thing, which I have been doing it, using a pre-conditioner over night, a herbal, which I infused in Castor oil, olive oil and grape seed oil. The herbs, I used in teaspoon of each were : horsetail, nettle, burdock, rosemary, hibiscus, Fo-ti (or fleece flower bark), the herbs and bark were infused for 30 minutes on a very low fire, then I added to a large bottle, one teaspoon of powdered sulphur, then when the herbs were slightly cool, then add it to the sulphur.

The herbal/sulphur oil was mixed with Mega tek rebuilder and I added it to my scalp, roots and hair and left it over night, then washed my hair with the Revita shampoo and conditioner. I pre-condition once a week.

The latest hair products and bits, pieces

I have noticed that the crown of my hair has been thinning and lately I have been suffering from a lot of stress, so I have to take some time out and have a look at my lifestyle. At the moment my father has come back from hospital in March and I have been looking after him. I have got no support from my aunts and cousin. All I have got was my aunt telling me off, in my own house. My father has not helped the situation at all.

This year has been very interesting and I have learnt lot about myself. I have always been grateful to people who are my friends and I have found I was always to work to be a friend and my friends have never worked towards me. Friendship is a two way relationship, and I realise that I deserve better.

Making of Valerie Mon Cherie Hairdrenalin portion

You tube user, has caused a revolution in the hair growing community by making her hairdrenaline portion, many people have been getting excellent results, especially on, they are doing the Hairdrenaline portion challenge. Tola on her blog is also trying out the portion, and I have been very impressed with her results after two weeks, from her pictures, her hair is definitely longer.

Most of the ingredients I used are very similar to Valerie's however with a few variations.
I used 4 bottles of West Indian Castor oil, each bottle contained 150 ml in total 600 ml.
45 teaspoons of black Assam tea
1/2 bottle of cayenne pepper
30 Biotin capsules 5 mg each
4 drops of essential onion oil
2 drops of essential garlic oil
as I could not get garlic seed oil and onion seed oil
I used 25g of sulphur, thanks to Tola from http;//
Added essential oils of Melissa, lavender and orange for scent.

I put the ingredients in a large dish and stirred them thoroughly, then I pre-heated my oven to gas mark 6, then I put the large dish with the ingredients and left in the oven for 5 hours at gas mark 4, then for the final half hour, put up the oven to gas mark 6. So for a total of 5 and a half hours, the ingredients were infused in the castor oil. After the time was up, I took out the dish and allowed it to cool.

Then I strained my mixture through a cheese cloth. muslin or knee highs, can be used. My portion was strained and put into my castor oil bottles, which originally contained castor oil. The mixture was a rich red at the beginning after the five hours of infusion, it was a dark brown. I originally started with 600 ml and the infused mixture, I ended up with 35o ml of portion. I added 4 drops of onion essential oil and 2 drops of onion essential oil and I added essential Melissa, orange and lavender for scent.

The instructions to get hyper growth, such as 3 inches or more in 7 weeks, people were getting an inch or nearly an inch in two weeks.
The onion seed oil and garlic seed oil are essential for the portion
Drink plenty of water
Eat an healthy diet
Taking suitable supplements or vitamins.
Massage your scalp daily, at least twice daily.
When adding the portion to your hair, massage in, then wrap your hair in sling film or plastic bag to get a greenhouse effect. Your hair follicles would be open. you could leave over night, or leave on for two or more hours.

As I was able to obtain onion seed oil and garlic seed oil, but able to use onion and garlic essential oils, plus I used sulphur powder. So I will be very keen to see the results. I will be updating after 30 days, however if there is significant growth, I will be updating sooner. Thanks to Valerie and Tola.

My Experience of the Jannu Hair and Facial steamer

Yesterday I used the Jannu Hair steamer, which is very similar to the Huetiful Hair steamer. As many ladies have already said, the hair steamer is very easy to assemble and it takes about five minutes to steam up and I sat under the steamer for 20 minutes or more. The top picture shows my hair after the steam treatment, what I would say that it is important the steamer is raised properly and you sit under it with your back straight in a good chair. I did experience the steam on my forehead, but I had a towel around me.

What I did notice was after my conditioning treatment, my hair was very soft, even after I left my hair for one hour without combing it, it was still very easy to detangle and comb. The whole experience was very pleasant. This is one investment, which is worth the money, and I am very pleased that I was able to purchase the hair, money will spent.

The latest of what's happening to me

I have not done much writing, I have been very busy. I look after my father, he needs full time care, however I still believe despite my change in my life, it is important for me to look good.

Anyway, I bought the Jenna Hair and Facial steamer, cost £79.99 from Pak cosmetics, also it you buy it on-line, it cost £69.99

Anyway, I am looking forward to trying out my hair steamer, from the reviews, most people said it is very good and their hair is very soft and moisturised. Also I'm on the quest of growing my hair longer. Also I have started using Jason Aloe vera shampoo and conditioner, which does not have no laureth sulfates, and it enriched with plant proteins and Vitamins A, C, and E. When I use the shampoo and conditioner, I shall write a review after several times of using Jason shampoo and conditioner.

Also I shall be doing a length check, possible every month or every 2 or 3 month. To my diet, I have added wheatgerm oil, Vitamin E and Pukka organic bio nutrients Vitalise, which contains broccoli sprouts, beetroot, blueberries and chlorella.

Happy New Year and New Hair Colour

Happy New Year everyone. The year will be wonderful. Full of increased possibilities.
As the new year, I decided to try something new.
I am still continuing with my Premier creme rinse and Mega Tek. My hair is doing very well. Also I have decided to start taking Baldwins Biotin 5 mg, for ladies UK or otherwise, you can get biotin 5 mg anywhere. I have heard a lot of good things about 5 mg of Biotin and at Baldwins, you get 60 tablets for £7.95, which is good value for money, it can last me for two months.

Anyway, I take Evening primrose, 50 B-ccomplex, in the day time with a meal and take 5 mg of Biotin in the evening, or sometimes I take all my supplements in the evening.

What I have noticed is that my fingernails have a wonderful shine. It was pointed out to me by a man, when he was telling me about some hand cream, he asked me what I'm using on my nails, because they have a wonderful shine. I have not had any break outs at all. So I am very pleased with the biotin.

I decided to add some colours to my hair, I used L'Oreal Paris, Recital preferece Babylon Intense red, shade 6.66 and L'Oreal Excellence cream Light ash blonde, shade 9.1, I mixed the colour with a 40 volume developer, which I had bought. Using the highest developer will give my hair a higher lift, especially as it is so dark. Very pleased with the results, the colours came out very well. Eventually I will go to Sallys and get L'Oreal professional colours as the professional colour lasts a lot longer. However thumbs up for L'Oreal home colour, very good. The conditioners are excellent and I have not experienced any dryness. To keep the red colour from fading, I may try John Frieda auburn colour range or other colour treated shampoos and conditioners, there are several good ones on the market. At the moment I use a shampoo and conditioner for colour treated hair.

I did a brief length check, very pleased with my progress. My hair is on track!
