I Made the Curly Proverbz Hair Growth Oil

I was inspired by YouTuber Curly Proverbz to create a hair growth oil. If you've been following me for a while then you'll know that it had to be some strong inspiration for a skeptic like me to go out and buy all these ingredients to create this oil!


One of the biggest hurdles to creating this oil is getting all of the supplies. Between the essential oils and health food store products, it wasn't cheap to assemble the components of the oil. The most expensive thing I bought was henna and that was mostly because I had to order it online. Henna in and of itself is actually pretty reasonably priced if you have an ethnic store that sells it locally. The second big price tag are the essential oils. This recipe calls for three. I already had some of the oils though.

The cheapest thing I bought for this oil were the Fenugreek Seeds. The health food store near my house has bulk bins. I was able to buy exactly how much I needed for this recipe for the "grand" total of 66 cents! Despite the upfront cost, I can reuse these ingredients (and get more seeds) quite a few times before everything is gone.


Making the oil was really fun. It gave me "Harry Potter vibes" with it's green color and seeds settled on the bottom. Also, this glass container from Dollar Tree was perfect for the 2 cups of oil it's holding. I plan to let the oil infuse all this week then begin using it with the inversion method and frequent scalp massages come October (Saturday!).

Video | Summer Empties - 2016

I never thought that people would enjoy my "beauty trash" but they do! To my surprise my empties videos get as many views as my other videos. So, what better way to come back to YouTube than with an empties video?


I had so much stuff in this video that I had to break it into two parts! I really think that the increase in stuff is because I have been using conventional deep conditioners and leave-ins instead of just Tresemme or Trader Joe's conditioners. That's double the products off top. Hmmm...

Watch them now: Part I | Part II

Video | 5 Things My Natural Hair Doesnt Like

I know that you have all done it at least once. You see a new technique or product on YouTube, a blog, or a forum and you rush out to try it. You later end up frustrated because it didn't work out for you.

It was that feeling that motivated my newest video. I share popular things that don't quite work out for my hair. See if we have some of these in common and be sure to leave what doesn't work for you in the comments!
