Are Caucasians celebrities trying to make cornrows/French braids the hot new hair trend?

Cornrows or ‘French braids' is the most popular hair trend among the black community and white women have finally caught on.

I mean this is the hair style that every black person makes either underneath their weave, wig or when growing out their hair.

Cornrows can be made with your own natural hair or with extensions.

Benefits of rosemary oil on hair and skin

Rosemary oil has been used for centuries for health and beauty benefits. Rosemary oil is one of the most popular essential oils for hair growth. Rosemary oil can be used on its own or with other carrier oils such as olive or coconut oil.

Mayonnaise, honey, egg yolk & conditioner treatment: Homemade protein treatment for hair

Protein treatment is needed once in a while (I do mine once a month) in order to strengthen, moisturize and give a shine to your hair. Protein treatment helps to reduce hair breakage and makes the hair softer and smoother.  While you can buy protein treatments from the supermarkets or salons, homemade remedies are still the cheap option.

My hair was a bit dry this time around so I decided to do a protein treatment to give it life. I used 1 egg yolk, castor oil, mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon honey and Herbal conditioner.

Benefit of Vitamin E oil for natural hair & skin

Most hair products contain Vitamin E as the main ingredient and there’s a reason for that because Vitamin E promotes good circulation and stimulates hair growth. 

Vitamin E can be ingested as supplements or foods such as eggs, spinach, cereals, soybeans, grains & nuts. 

Since Vitamin E is very powerful, it’s recommended to use a few drops with other oils such as olive, rosemary or coconut oil. Massage the oil mixture into your scalp every day for better results.
