Product Review; Dr Miracle’s Temple & Nape Gro Balm

Hi Hi,
    So last month I promised I would do a review of Dr Miracle’s Temple and Nape Gro Balm; I’ve tried to be as honest as possible, no bias judgements.

This product contains mineral oil and a few other ingredients I was wary of but it promised growth and my front hair could use a bit of that right now. I used it for a little over a month and honestly, I didn’t really notice any change in the growth of my hair plus I have dull hair so I didn’t notice any improved shine either. I must add that I wasnt exactly religious with the application instructions, half of the time I was using it, my hair was beneath a weave and I just couldn’t be bothered at night. Anyway, I’m not sure I’m going to continue using it and I cant bring myself to throw away the container. As promised on the container, it does have a nice tingling sensation when applied although I made the mistake of applying it on freshly washed hair and a relaxer burn was nothing compared to it.
My hair is in braids right now and I’m pretty optimistic this time, I had smaller braids done compared to the previous ones I’ve had this year, I also braided my hair into 5 cornrows to stretch it a day before I had the braids done.

Have a lovely weekend !

Braids

Many naturals use
braids(Senegalese, Havanna
Twists, Ghana Briads, e.t.c) as a
go-to protective style to grow
longer and stronger hair. I’ve had braids installed twice this year because I had exams and just needed to tuck my hair away x_x, so I decided to share a few tips I use in maintaining my hair and braids. It’s advisable to do a deep
condition first to ensure that your
hair and scalp are strong enough
to handle the tension and extra
weight of the braids. For my deep
condition, I used Shea Moisture
Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep
Treatment Masque mixed with
Extra Virgin Olive Oil and applied it
liberally to my hair after which I put
on a shower cap and let sit for 45
minutes, did my regular co-wash
using TreSemme Naturals
Conditioner.
While braiding, ensure you dont get
all of your edges braided or use
larger sections when braiding the
front to distribute some of the
tension along the edges to prevent
breakage. Also make sure the
braids are not too tight, although the hair dressers over here have a mind of their own. After getting the braids done, you could wash once every two weeks or once a week especially if you have a lot of product build-up from using greases, oils or special
products. I use my regular
shampoo and conditioner but I
squeeze the braids while washing
and conditioning to make sure the
products get into the braids and
work effectively.
While you have the braids on, it’s
important to remember you still
have to moisturise regularly, you
could use a braid spray or spritz
liquid moisturiser frequently. I use
a water and glycerine spritz daily
to moisturize, after which I apply
my own handmade mixture which
consist of shea butter, vitale
conditioner for natural hair and
Swiss Jardin Indian Hemp hair
cream. I also use Organic Root Stimulator Olive Edge Control to smoothen out my edges and keep it in check.
