How to stretch your Natural Hair (no heat involved)


I am so thankful for YouTube!  Everyday I learn something new… today I learned how to stretch my hair without using any heat.   This idea is so brilliant and guess what I will be doing from now on??  You guessed it, I will be stretching my hair whenever I need to do a style that requires a little bit more length.  I just love this girl  check out her tutorial on how to stretch your hair without heat.

Homemade Flax Seed Gel


If you are looking for an alternative gel that is more natural than Eco Styler Gel here is a great recipe you can try at home.  It is easy to make and very cheap.  I bought about 1.5 cup of flax seed at my local bulk store for about 0.50 cents.  You can keep the gel in the fridge for 3 weeks.

You will need:

1/4 cup whole flax seed

2 cups water

Container or jar

Bring the mixture to a boil until it thickens.  Make sure you stir constantly to prevent the flax seed from burning.  Once ready, strain the mixture into a container or a  jar.

I found the recipe from Naptural85… enjoy!

After Eco Styling Gel

Needless to say I am in love with this product.  In fact while I was in the States this weekend I bought three big  jars at Sally’s.  Each jar was under $3.50.  I purchase the Olive oil and the Argan oil to try.

I did it!
