In honor of the first day of winter,
We have a received a question from IMAPrincessnyc. In honor of the first day of winter, we are going to
Dear Beautiful Texture,
I have two questions you can choose to answer one or both.
(1) It’s regarding natural hair care. My hair is fine and very soft. My question is what are the best products and daily care, for my natural hair to promote optimal health and growth?
(2) I am rocking natural hair and in the winter my hair becomes very dry? What are the best products/care to combat the dryness my hair experiences in the winter?
Here are a few suggestions:
Those are wonderful questions and it is one that we encounter often when we are at events.
* Every two to three weeks, give your hair a hot oil treatment. Naturals by Trinamichelle’s Hair Elixir, Moroccan Oil Treatment, Organix Deep Penetrating Oil with Argan Oil or Queen Helene Placenta Hot Oil Treatment will do wonders.
* Try to shampoo your hair every other month. Shampoo strips the oils that protect your hair. In between shampoos, use a conditioner approximately every 5days to clean your hair. Do a deep conditioner or treatment (thicker than one you would use during the warmer weather months) once every month. A great deep conditioner is Queen Helene cholesterol conditioner.
* Use a great leave in conditioner. A great leave in is Jane Carter Solution Leave in Conditioner, Dr Miracle’s Styling Meds Healing Leave in Treatment and conditioner, or Aphogee Pro-vitamin leave-in conditioner.
* After using your daily moisturizer, protect your ends with Naturals by Trinamichelle Chocolate Creme Hair Butter.
* Also, If you are not using a humidifier in your home, placing a pan of water on top of your radiators will help moisturize your hair as the winter air is very dry.
* If your hair needs more moisture, a hair steamer is a great way to help your hair absorb the oil or deep conditioner that you apply to your hair. The heat opens your hairs’ cuticles and helps your hair receive the benefit of your product.
* Another great way to protect your hair is to wear wigs or hair pieces! Your fragile ends are protected and you can keep your hair braided underneath for convenience. Be sure to wear your wig cap under the wig to protect your wig from damage and your hair from friction.
* Lastly, when rocking your natural hair style this winter, be sure to wear a scarf or satin bonnet under your hat. Be sure to keep your hair off of your sweaters or woolen scarves. Your hats, sweaters and scarves will take all of the moisture out of your hair and will dry your hair out.

Wellness Wednesdays is here! We are answering the question asked by
Anonymous asks: “Now that I am a “woman of a certain age”, what can I do to attain and maintain a level of vitality.?” Answer at 9:00 P.M.
Thank you for your question Anonymous! When a person (male or female) is over the age of 40, they may begin to notice that their hair, skin and overall appearance begins to change. A easy way to “liven” your appearance is to give your hair some of the body and luster that it might have lost over the years. A great way to do this is to add two tablespoons of honey and a great plant based oil (if you are vegan, do not use honey) to your favorite conditioner. This will give your hair the body and luster that you were missing.
Your skin tends not to heal and replenish as quickly as it did when you were younger. A great way to attain a youthful glow to your skin is to use a facial scrub two to three times a week. If you feel that your skin needs even more oomph, a facial scrub with a fruit enzyme will do the trick. For the skin on the rest of your body, a body scrub will give your skin a wonderful glow.
Two great ways to make your eyes pop is to use white eyeliner on the inside you your lower lid. Lastly if your eyes are puffy and you are going out on the town, a cream used to treat hemorrhoids (it’s made to reduce swelling in sensitive areas) will reduce your puffiness and give you a youthful and rested appearance.
The products that we have discussed are listed in the tags can be found around your home and also at: www.BeautifulTexture.com. We deliver to your front door!

Wellness Wednesdays is here! Our first question (And $25 raffle winner!) K. Shannon from Mississippi asks: “What is the best product to use to detangle my daughters’ hair?” Great question K. Shannon and congratulations! Being I do not know the age of your child, I will give you general advice. It is best to only comb your child’s hair when it is damp or wet. A spray bottle is a great way to accomplish this (especially as the temps begin to drop). I have a little one of my own and I like to add a bit of oil to the water to help condition and moisturize her hair as I am detangling. I am currently using Naturals by Trinamichelle’s Hair Elixir the scent and sheen are both amazing. In a pinch, coconut or olive oil work well too. Being you are in Mississippi on humid days products that contain vegetable glycerin are also great to use. This advice works well on curly, natural and relaxed hair that was braided or after removing hair system (weave, extensions etc.) Continue to keep your questions coming and we will see you here next week for Wellness Wednesdays!
