Lint Blues

11 Jun

1056172205_d9ee71db4e_bToday I would like to share something with you that I recently discovered. I have been wondering for a long time how to keep the lint out of my locks especially in a city such as NY. I have purchased a silk scarf and I try to keep it on all night even though I sleep like a wild animal.

But I have still been finding bits and pieces of white filaments in my hair in the mornings. I have figured out what it is! I have a feather pad underneath my sheets and I figured out that it distributes these small feathers into my bed and my sheets through its tiny holes. I was livid when I found this out because I have been using this pad for a long time! Once I found out, I immediately discarded it and I am on to the next thing… perhaps I will get a foam pad instead.

You don’t want to compromise your comfortable sleep for beautiful looking hair but something has got to give. Another product I recently threw out was my hot six oil.. I don’t like the smell of it because after awhile it smells sagey and I am more of a sweet smelling person so I just decided to get some olive oil and place a drop or two of my favorite fragrance oils inside such as strawberry or gardenia and that works better than a product that was manufactured in the store.

Hope I shed some light on this lint problem… I will be looking into more ways to shield locks from lint as we continue to travel on this journey.

~Love Your Hair~

18 Dec

This blog was born from the widespread notion that women, men, and children are not taking proper care of their hair. This especially applies to minorities and is not the fault of the minorities but instead stems from lack of education and accessible resources to properly care for what some may deem as “nappy hair”. No matter what the color, texture, curl pattern, or style of your hair… it can be healthy and and will grow in its natural state with the proper tlc! Lets have fun on this journey and celebrate loving our hair! Enjoy~ Sisters of Isis
