Making Your own Handcrafted Natural Face Mask By Washington ExaminerAlthough I create and market my own products, I still believe in being smart or economical with your own budget. If you are patient and feel strong about using all natural products on your skin, hair and face, and/or have a low budget but want the best results that are non-harmful then get to your local grocers and/or in your home pantry, closet, bathroom and kitchen to collect what you need for quality and effective homemade products. And just to encourage you, I posted this video below that may inform and inspire you to do so...
How To Make Your Own All-Natural Face Masks
Sharing a nice DIY natural kinky sew-in weave
From Vixen Sew-in Vlogger- Ms. Amber Glamour on YouTube. She is using 2 (22 inch) bundles of Private Stock Hair Connection pure texture. It gives the appearance of having full thicker natural hair. This would work for myself because my hair is fine and thin.

These Bantu Knots came out nice and more defined
One thing about giving my hair a break from wearing extensions or weaves, especially in the warmer months, is feeling the fresh (sought of fresh...) air breeze through my hair and scalp. Now that's exhilarating and liberating!
So this time, on my blown out hair. My steps:
1. Very little Spritz of water
2. Cantu Shea butter Moisturizing twist & lock gel
3. Fantasia iC Organic Shea Butter Moisturizing Serum
4. Natural oils
5. Created 10-11 Bantu knots
6. Covered hair with satin cap
7. Took down knots, separated them & Pin up the sides

tutorial demonstrating how to do a Classic Twist out
Hi Again. Here's another tutorial. I am demonstrating how to do a Classic Twist out on wet hair.
This is just your classic twist out. Steps & Supplies used:
1. Co-wash and/or Shampoo hair
2. Deep condition, Instant conditioner or Hot oil Treatment (depending on condition of hair)
3. Towel dry (mildly-leaving it damp)
4. Add oil, and leave in conditioner (optional because hair will most likely be moist enough), Non-drying Gel/Pudding/Mousse/Setting lotion (optional-it just gives more hold/set), and have your water bottle ready to use as your hair will begin to air dry and you want to keep it damp while twisting)
5. Comb hair with large tooth detangling comb
6. Section hair (optional for more control while detangling)
7. Begin parting sections for twisting (in any direction you prefer-pay attention to how you would like your hair to fall/lay when dry) 8. The rest of the instructions are on the video
If you try this style using this method, I would love to know your outcome.
Note: waves and twists outcome vary depending on texture, health of hair and drying time.
