I became natural 8 years ago at the tender age of 35 and love sharing my ups and downs as I master this thing called natural hair. Married, with two kids (one being a natural herself) gives me a different perspective on our hair and why I love being natural. I want healthy hair, long hair and sexy hair! I'm an older natural---that's right---I'm grown and sexy, and I have much to share.

Jackie Kadziyanike

Hi im new to this.what protein products should be used

Sabrina Richmond Perkins

I love Aubrey Organics GPB. It can be found at Vitamin Cottage and Whole Foods. Not too expensive (around $8.99) and it’s so thick and nourishing. I do one about 3 or 4 times a year but you can do more often if you like.

Every 6-8 weeks and moisturizer after or deep condition after every treatment when you finish your treatment always

I can’t find aphogee, and other products where I am. Is there a way tô do it homemade?

Sabrina Richmond Perkins

There are tons of products right in your kitchen full of protein and great for your hair like eggs and yogurt. Here’s a recipe from the blog: https://blackhairinformation.com/growth/deep-conditioning/back-to-basics-home-made-protein-treatment/
