WHY ESSENTIAL OILS?


Essential oils are a fantastic creation because of the vast benefits they provide in the area of skin care.  From Rosemary to Sandalwood, they each provide a unique purpose and benefit to your skin and hair.  Not only do they provide aromatherapy, but they are also used for health reasons.  For instance, Peppermint essential oil can be used for pain management, to apply as a topical solution, Lavender and Cedarwood essential oil can be used for minimizing flakiness and are excellent for hair and scalp.


Use of essential oils are so powerful, that they have been used for thousands of years, not only for medicinal use, but also for household cleaning products.  The particles in essential oils come from distilling or extracting different parts of plants, flowers, leaves, etc.  (Reference: draxe.com/ 101 essential oil benefits, paraphrased).  Although there are many uses, today we will focus on the benefits of hair and scalp.  One of the most powerful essential oils is Tea Tree Oil, which can be found in each bottle of Natural Hair Mist as well as Loc Drench Hair Oils.  The benefits of Tea Tree include:

Anti-fungal, antiseptic, unclogs hair follicles, nourishes roots, induces hair growth, anti-bacterial, moisturizes skin, controls body odor, relieves skin itching, flights psoriasis, antiviral, treats warts, wounds, ringworm, reduces acne.


Whether you’ve just gotten your hair done, or looking for a refresher after a gym workout, we’ve got the Mist for you!  If you are just wanting to promote further nourishment to your locs after washing them, you may choose a particular mist, or if you have a certain scalp issue, one of the bottles may fair better to aid your healing process.   

Below is a chart I’ve developed sharing with you the benefits of each essential oil, and the corresponding Natural Hair Mists which can be found hosting them.  Based on your hairs’ deficits, choose the Natural Hair Mist that would best promote your hair’s wellness, nourishment, and your scalps’ needs. New Natural Hair Mists may be added and some may no longer be available due to discontinuing or selling out, so use this guide as a reference to locate the bottle best for you.  Email questions to tiffanyslocjewels@gmail.com, or submit through the site.

4 TIPS TO COMBAT WINTER DRYNESS

4 TIPS TO COMBAT WINTER DRYNESS

MY LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH MY LOCS

MY LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH MY LOCS

LOCS! LOCS! LOCS! Sometimes I love 'em, and sometimes I hate 'em.  Well, I don't really hate my actual locs, I hate the mistakes I made with my locs which are currently yielding this present result.  What result would that be, you may ask?  Why would you have issues with your locs Tiffany when they are long and beautiful?  What could you possibly see wrong with them?

Well, years I ago I wanted layers, and I was deathly afraid to go to a stylist, any stylist, it didn't matter if you were a loctician, a colorist, one who cuts, or only styles locs, I simply wanted to do it myself, because I trusted myself.  And so, my logic was, if I cut it, then only I can be upset with whatever mistakes I make with my locs.  And that was true.  Definitely!  So I set out to self-teach myself how to cut my locs into layers.  I was successful in trimming my all-natural hair while it was a 'fro and maintained it beautifully for three and a half years.  Rarely did you see any split ends or "dead hair", and my hair was thicker and stronger than ever since I did the big chop back to natural.  All in all, I decided to get onto Youtube and search 'how to cut your hair into layers yourself', and studied and studied and studied and studied, until I felt confident enough that I wouldn't screw my own hair up.  Well, I remember doing the cutting in parts, starting with the bottom first and then working my way up.  It looked good for awhile, until I came to the part where your locs frame your face.  One side I managed to cut absolutely perfect, but the other side....well, not so much.  I ended up cutting one side across in a straight line by accident instead of a gradual, layered framing.  Since that was wrong and looked horrible, I had to cut even more in order to "make it look right", ha ha.  At this point you are probably laughing, and well, it is kinda funny.  But later on, oh boy, later on, when it grows out, its tough to tweak and watch one side of your locs look more lopsided than the other.  Now years later, when I want all my locs one length, its a little harder to achieve and will take much longer.

Because of how I've colored my hair down through the years, the ends would pop off.  Some of it is perfectly natural, and some of it is due to color treatments which I also did myself with box dye. Eeww! You hair stylists out there are probably saying right now, and that's right, eeww! Now my hair looks good only when its curly or crinkled.  Every time I wear it straight, I like it for the first 24 hours, and then I hate it.  I'm patiently waiting for the day when I can wear it all one length.

 

The lesson learned: please go to a professional, no matter how much you'd like to do it yourself.  Spend the money, pay them what they're worth, seek out the best in your area and get referrals. Then go in with a peaceful assurance that you are in good hands.  Don't make the mistakes that I did, which has years of consequence.  But such is life, isn't it?
