The Scalp Soother has to be the best tool on the market when you are wearing a protective style, weave or wig and are looking for relief for an itchy scalp.
It allows you to get the relief you need immediately without messing up or disturbing your style.
It does not break your hair, if you are wearing a weave it does not pop the net and safely soothes the itching that may sometimes be associated with wearing protective styles. The Scalp Soother is very long and this allows you get in those really hard to reach places.
There are no scars and it actually feels like it is massaging the scalp while you are soothing the itch. Say good bye to the “Weave - Pat” because the Scalp Soother conforms to the shape of your head so that you can get to the itch without using foreign objects.
An added bonus is that for those who are suffering from thin edges and need to massage the edges to promote growth, the amazing scalp soother is perfect for that because it helps to stimulate the scalp which promotes hair growth.
Works With Various Natural Hairstyles
If you wear your hair in loose natural styles such as wash and go’s, twists, or braids, the Scalp Soother is also great for soothing the scalp in these styles as well.
I have worn a high puff and was still able to get down through the puff to my scalp. It is great to use while shampooing because it exfoliates the scalp to rid dandruff and dead cells. It is very
easy to use; gently slide Scalp Soother directly on scalp starting at the hairline and slide towards the crown moving around the circumference of your head.
What I like about the Scalp Soother is that it is very sturdy and comes awesome bold colors such as bright pink, deep green and black. Looking for a great option to soothe your itchy scalp?

How to Wear the Puff Cuff on Thick or Fine Natural Hair
How many hair clamps has your curly hair broken? Well, no more! Finally, there’s a hair clamp that can handle the challenge of thick, textured hair. Meet the Puff Cuff, a “remix” of the banana clip, uniquely designed to hold and style even the thickest of thick hair!
The Puff Cuff’s unique teeth are designed to lock into the texture or curl of your hair and hold the clamp in place, NOT to glide through the hair like a comb or banana clip. While the concept may be similar to the old "banana clip,” the Puff Cuff functions differently by working with your hair instead of against it.

The brush is from an Italian company called DAFNI and is a "hair straightening ceramic brush." The idea is similar to any other straightening tool - you slowly run the hot ceramic through your hair and it gets rid of any waves or kinks.
What DAFNI claims makes they're product better than competitors is that it has more surface area than the traditional straightener, which means that hair could be done in as little as two minutes. Plus since it's already a brush, the hair wouldn't get tangled, according to the beauty product company.
Why Is The Dafni Straightener Brush So Instantly Popular?
This new hair straightening brush is popular because of ease-of-use in our opinion. Beauty-conscious women are always looking for ways to change our look and style. Looking the same day after day gets boring. Even though we may not straighten often it's nice to have the ability to do so and do it quickly. So the question is…
Does the Dafni work on Kinkier Natural Black Hair?
Well, here is a video from a Facebook user named Kimberley Satterwhite, she posted her first time using it and she thought you might like that we share it with you right here. Check it out!
Be honest, what do you think of the results?
Given the texture of the little girl’s hair that it was demonstrated on, do you think this will work for your texture? It looks very good to us!
BUT.... BUT.... It costs $300 (Now down to $200) For $300 it needs to wash, condition and blow dry my hair too!
Here's Kimberly's (the mom) Comment From Her Video Post:
Sometimes things look so good you have to think, "That just can't be!" And "It's just too good to be true!" Like how I earn 6 figures as a stay at home mom. I just say, "Let's just Try it & see"! I understand how it feels to be a total skeptic of something! So I'm going to try out the 'Dafni Ceramic Straightening Brush'. DOES IT WORK?! You can see for yourself IF In Fact IT Works or not?! This takes the place of flat ironing and saves you MAJOR TIME! I am TOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!
NOTE: I was so excited to use this i didn't wash my daughters hair. She does have GEL in her hair i just ran it through really quick to test it. Imagine this on her CLEAN hair! WOW. I'm very happy with this product!
Here is everything you need to know about how to use a black tea rinse for shedding hair and stopping hair loss.
Black tea rinses can give your hair that extra growth boost that you desire, especially when you thoroughly cleanse and condition your hair.
According to many natural hair gurus this hair saving rinse absolutely works. So, for you tea heads out there who love a big cup of antioxidants to start your morning, you may want to give your hair and scalp a sip of it as well.
Whether you are looking to reduce shedding and add shine, elasticity, and bounce, there are a few rinses that you can use to help with your desired result. Check out this black tea rinse for hair method, and if you wish, add your own mixes to cater to your hair and beauty needs.
Black tea can be used to reduce hair shedding and save your locs. The caffeine in the better black tea brands help block DHT, the main hormone that is at fault for hair loss. Black tea actually contains more caffeine than coffee, and it works very well.
Here's what you do. Simply apply the black tea rinse after you thoroughly shampoo and/or condition your natural hair. Some naturals like to leave the rinse in. Other curlies like to apply the black tea rinse while they are deep conditioning their hair.
Black Tea Rinse For Hair Helps...
If you want to do a black tea rinse to stop shedding hair, here is what you will do:
Get 2-4 bags of black tea and steep them in hot, boiling water. Let them steep for a few hours, or overnight if needed. The stronger the brew, the better your hair results will be. Pour the black tea into a spray bottle, After you shampoo your natural hair, spray the black tea concoction onto your hair and scalp. Let it sit for 20-30 minutes.
Wash out the rinse and deep condition your hair. WARNING: The black tea rinse can actually dry out you hair, so it is important that you condition your hair afterwards. Do not skip that step, trust us. To ensure that your moisture is retained, try adding a top-notch natural hair deep conditioner on top of the tea rinse.
*Warning* Black tea is a natural hair dye. Be mindful that your hair color could possibly change.
Several famous YouTubers have confidently claimed that this black tea rinse has worked wonders for them with just one use. Some say they religiously do this black tea rinse every 2 weeks, and have received more than amazing results. Of course, every woman's head of hair is different. But this is good, trust it.
Here’s the hair science behind Black Tea when it comes to your hair; it contains lots of caffeine.
The caffeine blocks the hormone that is known for hair loss (DHT). For whatever reasons you’re shedding (stress, postpartum, etc), this is said to be a natural way of fighting off hair loss.

It's no secret, coconut oil for hair has been a true blessing for women wanting to bring their damaged curls back to bouncy life.
Many things can cause your hair to look bad. Straightening your hair too often of even an illness can cause your hair to lose its life and luster. If your hair ever looks dull or starts feeling brittle or straw-like, this new coconut oil and honey hair recipe works wonders and usually only after using it twice, you can have your bouncy curls back and have hair that looks ready for any beauty magazine photo shoot. I recommend this to ANYONE with damaged hair/fuzzy, undefined curls. So many ladies who are new to this hair revitalization method are absolutely AMAZED to see the quick and gorgeous results.
Coconut Oil For Hair & Honey Method: What You'll Need
A few drops of essential oil for fragrance (optional)
MELT the coconut oil in the microwave for a few seconds - Don't cook it, just melt it.
POUR the coconut oil for hair into a bowl, add the honey, and mix. You may have to work at it, as the two don't easily mix. Add the essential oil at this point if you wish. The mask does not smell bad if you don't add any fragrance!
APPLY the (still hot) mixture to your wet hair from ends to roots.
PUT on your Hair Therapy Wrap, alternatively you can warm a towel in the microwave and wrap your hair in it.
WAIT 45 minutes, or for really damaged hair you can leave the treatment in overnight (just wear a shower cap)
Final Details: How To Use Coconut Oil For Hair
Apply the mask to wet hair, concentrating on the ends, where most of the hair damage occurs. (If there are still some solid bits of coconut oil in the hair mask, just work them into your hair.) Wrap your hair up in a bun and place hair therapy wrap or wet towel over it. Let the mask sit for 45 minutes, then wash rinse in the shower and follow with your normal shampoo and favorite conditioner. When your hair dries, you’ll see instant shine. Apply the mask once a week and your hair will be softer, shinier, and look healthier over time.
One thing to note: coconut oil can make tubs and floors very slippery! It will drip, even with a shower cap on, so be careful. Also, if you take a bath while the coconut oil hair mask is absorbing, some of the oil will make its way into the tub, giving your skin a hydrating treatment. Remember, using coconut oil for hair is only one of its MANY uses, besides using it for conditioning and hair growth treatments, using coconut oil for skin and face brings many beauty benefits like soft and younger looking skin. It truly is a miracle oil.

Simple & clear Tria hair removal laser 4X review: Here's the deal. When using the Tria laser hair removal 4X system, you can start seeing major improvements within a matter of 10-12 weeks.
Some women say that they actually forgot to shave for up to a week at a time and the hair the remains is so fine that it's not even noticeable. But it all depends on your hair type and where the hair is on your body as well.
There are some tougher areas to work on, like the hair on the big toes for hairy men, areas like that are sure to need the complete 6 months of treatments to get the job done. But since it is so easy to do, you can do it from the privacy of your own home. Not a big deal.
Paying The Big Bucks... Is Tria Worth It?
We priced laser hair removal procedures in salons recently.
And depending on the area you live, it's not going to be cheap. In the Florida area, it is about $500 for 6 treatments on smaller areas. That would include your bikini line, underarms is another area…and so forth. The cost adds up quickly. And what they don’t tell you up front…is that you will still need to come back into the salon later for follow up visits. That is the worst part for people that don't enjoy trips to the salon, or the repeated out-of-pocket costs that you'll pay. Salons are also known for raising their prices as they see fit, so don't get comfortable with any "set prices".
The Tria Laser Hair 4X Removal System is the ONLY at home laser that can give you the same permanent results as the professional systems found at dermatologists and salons. Right now, the Tria at home hair removal system is on sale on Amazon for only $395 and Amazon also has a very helpful Tria hair removal laser 4x review page. But, back to the price, that is a big cost for some lower income people, but for others, they realize that they will pay out less money over a matter of months. How?
Comparing Upfront Tria Hair Removal Cost VS. Year After Year Costs
Think of the price of a razor each week (that is if you change your razor weekly. Some of us change it more often), a can of shaving cream/lotion each month.
If we go with the average cost of a refill razor head being $2.50 and the average can of Shaving Cream/lotion being $3.50. The prices add up like this:
52 Razor Blades = $130
12 Cans of Shaving Cream/Lotion = $42
Total for each and every year = $172
You can see how this will just continue to add up year after year after year.
You could actually pay for this Tria hair removal laser 4X system with the money you'd spend on 2 years of shaving supplies, and even better than that, be done with shaving FOREVER in just 6 months! If you're anything like the rest of us, never needing to shave again is worth more than can be explained by numbers.
So, every 2 weeks, what will you be in for with your Tria hair removal laser 4X?
STEP 1- Prepare. Thoroughly cleanse, shave and towel-dry your skin.
STEP 2- Customize. The Tria Laser has 5 comfort levels that will help you customize treatments to your personal comfort level.
STEP 3- Apply. Place the laser tip on your skin. After each beep, just lift and place the laser tip about 1/4 of an inch and move it over the areas you wish to treat.
Normal sized legs take about 10 minutes each to do, underarms and bikini lines usually take about 5 minutes total. So, you are finished in about 25 minutes. You'll only need to do this once every 2 weeks. Many users report that halfway through their treatments they see quite a difference in slowed hair growth.
This Tria hair removal laser 4X review is meant for the men and women who have the money for such an item, it just works. Most people hate shaving and I especially don't like wasting money on shaving supplies.
We received a Tria Laser Hair Removal 4X System for review purposes. We are under no obligation to post a positive review or do anything. We also have no financial backing or linking to their company. If a product stinks, we will tell you. Period.
