Recently, I went to the hairdresser this past weekend to get a ponytail for my recent photoshoot, and Boy, was it laid! My stylist used Got2BGlue hair spray to accomplish this slick look. And I did not have to worry about frizz or flyaways. Got2BGlue got the job done, but my hair was stiff, crunchy, and flaky after a couple of days. For the first time in my life, I tried out this Shampoo Bar from Oh My Garden to get my hair back to normal. Although, I was skeptical at first because I am use to using shampoo out of a bottle. After looking at the ingredients, I realize that it wouldn’t hurt to try it—Friday morning after an excellent workout. I gently rubbed the shampoo in a circular motion until it lathers in my hair and massage the ingredients into my scalp and repeat a couple of times until I felt comfortable washing the product out of my hair and following up Deep Conditioner; my hair felt squicky clean. This shampoo bar dismantled any flakiness I received from the Got2BGlue hair spray and added shine to my hair.
And Viola, my hair is back to its natural state, and I love it! I would recommend this shampoo bar solely based on its ingredients. OH, MY GARDEN is made with organic ingredients that don’t dry out your hair and gently cleanses and nourishes the hair and scalp.
My Favorite five ingredients
Macadamia See Oil – helps add shine, strengthens, and nourish hair follicles. fights hair loss
Mango Seed Butter – softens dry hair, reduces breakage, and smooths split ends.
Coconut Oil – moisturizes hair and reduces breakage.
Chamomile Extract – strengthens hair and protects it from easy damage.

Many strive for long, thick, beautiful hair, but few are willing to maintain proper scalp health to achieve this goal. I was excited when Canviiy provided products for my Second Annual Galentine’s Day Slumber Party because I am guilty of neglecting my scalp and wonder why I am experiencing dry and itchy scalp. This week I added Canviiy’s Itch-Calming Organic-Based Serum and Sea Mineral & Organic Herb Infusion Restorative Growth Serum to my morning and night routine. See my review on each product below!
Itch-Calming Organic-Based Serum
Often, in between wash days, I experience an irritated and itchy scalp due to product buildup or just neglecting my scalp altogether. There wasn’t a product that worked, oils would clog the pores, and other brands had harmful ingredients that weren’t good for me. The Itch-Calming Organic-Based Serum was just right; it wasn’t too thick that it’ll clog my pore, and it had healthy ingredients. I use this lightweight serum before I put my hair in a pineapple each night before bed. I applied a pea-size amount of product on my scalp and began massaging for three minutes. Immediately, the cooling sensation cleansed my scalp of any impurities and toxins found in my pores.
Sea Mineral & Organic Herb Infusion Restorative Growth Serum
Proper scalp health contributes to long and healthy hair. I don’t believe my hair grew five inches after five days of trying the Sea Mineral and Organic Restorative Serum. Still, giving my scalp the proper tender love and care it needs by massaging it every morning with this serum helps strengthen the hair follicles and allows the serum’s nutrients to penetrate the scalp and promote long-term hair growth.
My Favorite four Ingredients found in both products:
Aloe Vera Leaf Extract- repairs dead skin cells on the scalp, promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, and reduces dandruff.
Witch Hazel- help treat scalp sensitivity and provide relief from symptoms such as itching and tenderness.
Peppermint oil – improve hair growth and prevent hair loss.
Manuka Honey- cleanses and protects the scalp.

The next time you go to Starbucks, make sure you order a tall matcha green tea, take the lid off, dump the drink on your hair, and watch your hair strengthen and see growth overnight. I am just Kidding! No need to do that when Ecoslay has created a stellar protein treatment for high and low porosity hair that will restore health to your hair and prevent damage. Ecoslay’s Matcha Boost consists of ingredients found in your kitchen that wake up hair follicles, cause growth, and strengthen weaker hair strands. First, I use a primer to prep for washing; next, I use the wash & detox shampoo to cleanse my scalp; then I apply the Matcha Boost protein treatment for five minutes with heat; and finally, I use a deep protein-free conditioner to add moisture to my hair. After one use, my hair looked healthy and felt stronger. Since I have low porosity hair, I apply this treatment once a month with heat. You can refer to the table on the product label to determine your hair porosity’s proper usage. Although this treatment has worked on my hair, if you are experiencing any damage to your hair, I would recommend seeking a professional hairstylist to correct this problem.
Four Ingredients found in your kitchen:
Hydrolyzed Quinoa Protein – penetrates the hair shaft for robust protection.
Colza Oil- loaded with Vitamin E that increases moisture and smoothness while assisting with hair growth.
Matcha Extract – is useful for hair growth, maintaining healthy hair, and beneficial to your scalp’s skin.
HP Starch – helpful for those with oily and moist scalp; cornstarch sucks up the the condensation and grease , so your scalp and hair stays fresh.
