GROWTH

afro, growth, Hair conditioner, Home made, Jim+Henry

Excited to announce that my product is here: GROWTH is a blend of Shea butter and Rosemary essential oil, an exclusive blend proven to stimulate the scalp, repair, replenish, soften and heal hair to reveal a gorgeous crowning glory.


I am thrilled to share it with my followers: if you’d like some, let me know (!!!)


Results can be seen in all of my photos where I’ve tagged GROWTH, or my home-made product: this is what I’ve been working on, it’s finally here, and I can’t wait to spread the hair joy with others and help them realise how gorgeous their hair can be, naturally

At last

Y A A A S

  
Are you ever just like f*cking yes?! Because your hair is finally on bloody point? And it hasn’t taken days for it to look like this? No, it’s only taken one night, an evening, and the next day your hair is Bob Bob Ricard fancy? 

  
This morning I took my hair out and I was like damn, how, after one night – actually from 1.30pm the previous day, to this morning – of it being *washed and thoroughly conditioned, does it look like this? 

I was thinking how? How?! The answer: Three Blends. I changed the ingredients, mixed up the quantities and re-blended. Oh how I love the results. And I mean LOVE. My hair felt heavier with product this am, hence why it’s probably hanging around my shoulders tonight (massive f*cking yes to this).

  
It looks quite short and bouncy in the photos, but funnily enough it’s long and heavier tonight, which is another first. And it’s incredibly soft. I’m really impressed. 

  
YES. 

Oh, and, camera is on the way, promise.

And this dress was a present from my big sister, fits a God-damn dream.

Daddy … When I ask you please. You know when you have a song in your head? That’s Tinashe, boss.

  

So I washed my hair..and strangely enough I think it looks longer than before (I straightened it)? Strange because I trimmed it yesterday and strange because I bumped into a friend yesterday who I haven’t seen for months and she stroked my mane in complete shock and admiringly said: “Wow Tam I’ve never seen your hair so long!” Which made my night. 

  

  

Now I know you’re thinking right… so how precisely does she get it like that? I practice what I like to call the motion, which is just a hair rinse, castor oil on my roots and I use my own / a natural, organic hair conditioner. It sounds simple enough. 

  

But I’ve also started practising the oil rub-in-roots method. I don’t know the official name for this, but my twin sister mentioned it and I’ve done it twice in it two weeks. 

  

Admittedly, not a long enough period (nor often enough), to really yield any kind of result with my hair. But I think the pictures speak for themselves. 

Oh and apologies for looking half asleep in the photos this am, I’ve a cold I’m struggling to shake off. 

Flowery

Home made, Reality, Three Blends

So the other day a friend said that flowers are a bit of a “cliché, really” and why on earth would I make the associations between my new hair care products and flowers. Darlin. Oh my funny, ignorant friend. My face (below).


Firstly, I welcome the question and applaud the statement. But let me explain.

Three Blends is inspired by my sisters, the two flowers that light up my life. Scorn if you want, but I’d rather you kept on reading.

Knowing the properties of plants and typically the flowering kinds, I see roses, tulips, germanium and cammomile as powerful elements of nature.

They bloom thanks to water and photosynthesis, but it amazes me that these tiny little buds turn into stunning, things of beauty that enthrall with their scent and inspire the world over with their density, potency and dream-like colours.

The properties of plants inspire medicine, the colours inspire designers, but it is the strength of just- bloomed roses, the potency of crushed petals and heady scents of flowers steeped in oil to intensify and draw out those otherwise unattainable scents that made me choose the magical flower as the mascot if you will, for Three Blends. 

Oh and crushed frangipani, coconut and lime is my favourite. Goods coming soon. Promise ya. 

Hair today v last week

So, I’ve practiced the exact same process I go through with my hair to get it to hang and look exactly how I like it, but interestingly today I have different results (AND LOVE IT!)

Sorry about the face

Bigger

Today it’s bigger, slightly drier and it looks longer? I don’t know how. Perhaps I unconsciously realised last week I may have had too much product in my hair? But it looked so good?

About a week ago

Note this is the second time I’ve used the batch of my home-made rose and lime leave in conditioner, unlike my typical Rosemary batch.

God I love it

Thoughts people.

Do you get varying results too? I’d love to hear from you.
