Hi Gorgeous!

I'm finally getting around to sharing that I can put my twists in an up-do. I did this in early January and was elated that my hair was long enough to pull it off.

For this particular style, I pulled all of my twists back as if I were about to put them into a ponytail. I secured them in place with a banana clip. The ends were tucked under it with many bobby pins so that the banana clip was not visible. I was so happy about this not only because it signifies hair growth but also because I realized that I can do other styles. I'm getting a bit bored with my usual twists and am wanting to venture out with other styling options. Woo hoo!! Now I'll really be head-over-heals when I can pull all of my twists back into a low-pony. Don't know why that's so big on my list but it just is.


Not sure if you recall me mentioning that I may do a giveaway on a particular, unopened, still in the plastic bag, Hairveda Vatika Frosting. Well, it's on and poppin'!

According to Hairveda.com, this product is great for pretty much all hair types. Here are some suggested ways to take advantage of its natural goodness.

Vatika Frosting Usage

Vatika Oil Frosting has many uses. Here are the ways you can get the most out of this great oil:

Pre Shampoo:
Vatika Frosting is a great pre shampoo mix. Directions: Slather your hair with a good amount of Vatika Oil Frosting. Leave in 45 mins -Overnight. Shampoo or rinse out in the morning for beautiful, soft, shiny locks. It is best to apply oil and leave it for a day before washing.

Deep conditioning Recipe:
Mix 2 tbs. of Vatika Oil Frosting with 3 tbs of your favorite -cone free moisturizing conditioner. Leave in for 15 mins - 1 hour. Rinse or shampoo. You'll experience a high shine after this treatment.

Ends sealant:

After you have applied your hair moisturizer, seal your ends with Vatika Oil Frosting. You'll love how your ends feel. You should oil your hair at least 3x a week.

Scalp massage:
Keep your scalp and follicles in tact. Oil enriches your hair, protects it and the massaging stimulates better hair growth. Directions: Massage Vatika Oil Frosting into your scalp to stimulate circulation and help promote growth. The amla, & lemon extracts help keep your sebum quantity at bay promoting and aiding in constant growth.

Here's what ya gotta do to get a chance to have this baby in your hands. You must be a follower or subscriber. And yes, I will check. Lol. Next, leave a comment as to why you would love to receive this 8 oz jar of goodness. I'll use the Random Number whatchamacallit to pick the destined winner. You'll have until this Friday, Feb. 5th at 8pm EST to leave a comment. I'll announce the recipient on next Tuesday, Feb. 9th.

  1. I really love your hair, this syle is so cute , plus your hair looks so healthy. Thanks for sharing this lovely style with us. I think I'm going to sit out of this givewawy, to be fair and allow someone else recieve one of your great product giveaways. I'm still enjoying the afro veda, I am really liking this product more & more each day. Take care & have a great day!

  2. I have been wanting to try more natural products on my childrens hair. I have 3 girls and they all are chemical free. They all have long thick hair and lots of it. I am trying to keep their hair natural.

  3. I thought I had already started following you, but I checked, and apparently not. Well I am now, and I would love to try a new product on my new 'do. I haven't done much with my fro since my BC, but I am branching out in other areas to see what helps with my growth. I wouldn't mind adding this to the list.

    My best, Lynn

  4. Well I've worn locs for the past 4.5 years and have recently decided to comb them out...needless to say it has been an adventure. I am looking forward to taking care of my natural hair, but am unsure of what products to use. I thought this would be a great one to try on my natural journey.

    Thanks - Daphne

    BTW - I have subscribed to your blog - daph930@yahoo.com

  5. @Wanda Bethea - Puh-leaze keep the girls hair natural. I beg you. Puh-leaze. Lol =)

  6. @Daphne- Okay, you are the 2nd person I've known to "comb-out" their locs as opposed to cutting them all off. Kudos to you. I'm quite sure that took some time and work.
    Wish you the best!

  7. Hey CO: Not entering the giveaway but wanted to say I'm really diggin' the do :-)

  8. I would love to try the Vatika frosting. I love Vatika oil and have heard even better things about the Vatika frosting. Thanks!

  9. Since I finally took the plunge to stop wearing weaves and wear my hair out I am on the hunt to find the best products for my hair that err on the more natural side. I would love to try the Hairveda line, esp the frosting to seal my ends since I am trying to leave my hair twisted for a while. Good luck everyone!

  10. Your hair looks amazing, so healthy and it has grown. I am just starting my journey to go natural. Only 3 months in and I am wavering. I could sure use the Vatika frosting to help keep my hair from being so stressed were my "new growth" meets my "relaxed" hair. Also my daughter's hair can use it and now that my son wants to grow a fro, this house is in need of Vatika Frosting...lol :>)

  11. I love your hair. I still struggling to keep my hair moisturized, especially during colder weather. I've read great things about Hairveda as well as vatika oil. And, now, after reading your review, I mos def need to try Vatika Frosting.

  12. You spoke so highly about the product and the fact that it is called Frosting, makes it sound yummy. My hair is craving it :)

  13. I have heard so much about it that my curiousity has grown and I'm wondering if it is really that good. Once I try it I'll know for sure :)


Speak on it
