20190618_000412_0000.png

A ย protective style (PS) is any hairstyle that protectsย your hair from damage and the effects of manipulation. The entire aim of installing a protective style is to prevent your hair from damage. However, many of us don’t really see the benefits ofย protective styling because we don’t do it right (Remember that large chunk of hair that came out the last time you removed those braids?)

How To Bounce Back After Hair Loss ||5 Steps to Regrow Your Edges

Hair loss is a very common problem. It may lead to a lot of embarrassment and stress. The medical term for hair loss is ALOPECIA.

In the year 2017, one of my goals was to regrow my edges, and thanks be to God- the situation with my edges is now under control ๐Ÿ’ƒ ๐Ÿ’ƒ . I regrew my edges and I want to help you regrow yours.

Hair loss could be due to

  • Increased Breakage
  • Reduced hair growth

My Chebe Experience

Chebe powder is an ancient powder from Chad which is the secret of their extremely long hair. It is said to promote length retention by keeping hair moisturized for longer. Some people have also said it made their hair thicker.

If you haven’t heard about it, click here to find out more about chebe.

I recently got some and decided to try it out to see if it would live up to the hype.

HOW I APPLY CHEBE:

1. Moisturizing

After moisturizing my hair, I seal with my chebe butter mix and braid my hair. When I take out the braids, my hair is always suuuuuper moisturized ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. It was almost unbelievable. I also noticed that it gave me amazing curl definition ๐Ÿ‘Œ.

2. Deep Conditioner

I added the chebe powder to my avocado deep conditioner. After applying, I heated it up with my steamer from @bellz_nhcc for 2 hours.

What I noticed:

The curl definition I got is definitely out of this world!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 3 days after and my hair is still curly! And have I told you how moisturized my Zuzu still is???? Honestly, it’s unbelievable!

My hair was surprisingly very stretched after I rinsed out the DC. This was unusual because my hair normally shrinks like crazy.

My hair is also definitely thicker since I started using chebe. It’s thicker through the entire length and not just at the roots. I’m very happy (I’m sure you can tell๐Ÿ˜Š)

And please help me check out my length! You would never believe that these pictures were taken exactly 9 days apart๐Ÿ˜ฑ

My Verdict:

Chebe powder receives a big thumbs up from me๐Ÿ‘. I’ve been using it for about a month. It will definitely be a part of my regimen from now on. Since I started, my hair is definitely stronger, it no longer breaks like it used to๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ. I’ve also noticed that my Zuzu has been much much more moisturized. Zuri and I are very happy๐Ÿ˜Š

If you’ve tried Chebe and you think it didn’t work, I advise that you be patient. I started seeing results almost two weeks after I started using it. Don’t give up. Keep using it regularly, great results are on the way.

However, be careful not to use too much of the powder. Otherwise, you’ll just be dripping chebe all day. A little goes a long way๐Ÿ‘Œ

P.S: Has anyone else noticed what the Lord has done for my edges? ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ

 

Chebe powder is now available on my e-commerce site www.naturalnimi.com.Click here to get yours now.
