Proud Lady Haircare - New Supplier

Hi There,

Just wanted to let you know about another new supplier

Proud Lady HairCare
They stock:

  • Organic Oils ( Avocado, Jojoba, Coconut)
  • Avalon Ferm
  • Avalon KeraCare
  • Laico Laico 
  • Salerm

All products quite difficult to get hold of the in the UK and they also sell a few hair accessories like polythene caps at only 0.20p each - individually wrapped. Those of you who have seen my You Tube Video : How to PrePoo will know that I am loathed to pay Boots £2.00 for three of these caps so I use Tesco plastic bags, for this price online I will be buying from Proud Lady on a regular basis. Also they stock Laico Laico which I haven't been able to find readily for a reasonable price. Also this site is papypal enabled!

Adding to the regime

So I was in a rush one afternoon and washed my hair without prepooing by accident.
When I started shampooing I realised and thought 'How am I going to rectify this?'

So I decided to add some Ojon Restorative Treatment to my Usual conditioner. This product is generally amazing and I find that the longer you leave it on the better.

After I washed the conditioner and Ojon Oil out my hair felt really amazing, and breakage was lessened.

So I have now started a new regime on Saturdays which works really well if I am planning on blow drying or applying any heat to my hair as Ojon Oil products are great for protecting your hair before heat styling:

My New Saturday Regime

PrePoo with JBCO and Herbal Essences Hello Hydration
Shampoo with Ojon Ulta Hydrating Shampoo
Deep Condition with Ojon Restorative Treatment and PhytoSpecific Vital Force Conditioner

I probably wont do this every Saturday but maybe once a month after clarifying.

    Frédéric Fekkai Shea Butter Hair Mask, 125ml

    Website Speil
    This deep moisturising hair mask from Frédéric Fekkai is ideal for ultra-dry, thick or unruly hair.
    Hydrate and smooth your hair with the rich shea butter and sweet almond protein formula. Hair is left soft, smooth and manageable.
    Shea butter comes from the natural fatty acids in the nut of the  Karite tree.
    Renowned style-maker Frédéric Fekkai is one of the most celebrated names in beauty and hairstyling. For more than 20 years, women have flocked to him for his unique talents and expert advice. Along the way, he has made an indelible mark on the fashion and beauty communities with his innovative styling, exclusive salons and luxurious hair and body care products. (http://www.johnlewis.com/230496494/Product.aspx)
    My Thoughts
    I tried this product from the Fekkai range and was suitably impressed. On a par with my love for the PhytoSpecific Vital Force Creme Bath. A lovely silky product which is a nice treat for weekened hair. I have been won over by this conditioner and would like to try more from this range.

    Cost: £18

    Availability: can be purchased from your local John Lewis or online

    Overwhelmed by Products

    I guess we have all had this, you walk into your local hair retailer or you log onto your favourite online store and you are so overwhelmed by the number of products that are available. 
    Do you go for the cheapest, the one that promises you longer stronger hair?? Where do you start??

    I suppose the best advice I can give is to do your research and know your own hair. Do you suffer from extreme breakage, and hair loss? Is your hair thin? Is is difficult to manage?? All of the above?

    There is no magic wonder product but trying a product out and reading the ingredients can help you make that decision. Having the right products and a strong regime can make this decision so much easier. It also helps to alternate products every so often as your hair can get a bit used to a particular product after long term use.

    I have found that anything with coconut oils in the ingredients has made my hair more manageable than shea butter. Jamaican Black Castor Oil has made my thin hair much thicker and helped stopped breakage. Also sticking with my regime for the last two years has been the most important thing I have done. This has worked for me but knowing your own hair helps alot!

    Anyone suffer from this problem

    Jamaican Black Castor Oil vs Ojon Oil


    Jamaican Black Castor Oil
    Jamaican Black Castor Oil is known to cleanse toxins from the scalp, nourish and thicken the hair, stimulate hair growth, moisturize dry brittle hair, repair split ends, and give hair body and bounce(http://www.sams247.com).

    Cost: Can range from as low as £9 to £17 depending on retailer.

    Availability: Can be extremely hard to get hold of in the United Kingdom, if you still cant get hold of this please see the AfroDeity Online Store - Where to buy Jamaican Black Castor Oil. So far no one has contacted AfroDeity to let us know of any in store places outside of London that supply Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Answers on a postcard.

    AfroDeity Store - Selling the  Fountain Jamaican Oils Collection - OPEN NOW!

    Overall, this Jamaican Black Castor Oil is extremely popular amongst the black hairistocracy. It has been known to have a distinct aroma which some can find unpleasant but people still clamour for this product. (Fountain is scented with Peppermint) Personally, I love this product. The thickness my hair has gained from continued use has made me a believer. Competitive price and the fact that it actually works by preventing that continual breakage, makes me a fan.


    Ojon Oil

    The secret of the Tawira’s strong, healthy, shiny hair lies within the tropical Ojon tree. The 100% pure and highly concentrated oil of the Ojon tree hydrates, strengthens, and restores the healthy look and feel of hair, leaving it soft, silky, shiny, and totally manageable. While there is a variety of Ojon products available on the market today, most of them can be used by any woman with any type of hair. (http://www.thebeautybiz.com/89/product-review/hair/ojon-hair-care-system)

    Cost: Products can range from £12 - 39 depending on the product, my particular favourite from this range is the Ojon® Hair Care Restorative Treatment

    Availability: Can be bought from your local John Lewis store or online.

    Overall, Ojon oil doesnt smell as bad as JBCO but still a distinct smell. Can be used on any hair texture, not know for its thickening power like JBCO, but helps with manageability and some products are great for hydration.
