I believe in the newness of everyday, I believe that every new day is an opportunity to do one thing better, and if you end up going a lot of days doing the wrong things remember tomorrow is a new day. A new day is our opportunity to do better, our ticket to try again. #newday #positivevibes.

Raw & Organic Deep Conditioner Hair Treatment! It’s about to go down! Texas hundred degree weather u will not destroy my hair!!!! #heyfranhey #wholefoods #naturalhair #locs
Shea Moisture recently released a Manuka Honey & Mafura line (as well as a Jamaican Black Castor Oil line) that I’m sincerely in love with.
Manuka benefits for hair: aids in the regrowth of thinning hair, prevents dry scalp and build up and dope for shine and combatting frizz.
Mafura benefits for hair: Contains essential fatty acids that are known to strengthen, deeply moisturize and soften dry hair. Also has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties for a healthier scalp.
In other words? Your hair health, scalp health and growth are about to be on 10! I’ve been using the conditioner and deep conditioner once a week followed by the Alikay Naturals Lemongrass leave-in (finger raked into freshly washed, soaking wet hair) and then a layer of their Shea Yogurt Moisturizer on top, to seal it all in (Discussed this organic brand a few months back. Here)
Both lines were purchased at Target! The weather is changing up so this is my go-to healthy hair regimen for the cooler temps.
P.S. ALL of these smell like absolute heaven on earth. Seriously.
Have any of you tried these products? Thoughts?
