GrandPa’s Wonder Pine Tar Soap | Product Review

GrandPa's Pine Tar Soap

We all have our preferred methods of washing and maintaining our beautiful natural tresses. No one method is better than the other. What I have learned is that you have to listen to your hair and scalp. Every method doesn't work for everyone. So Experiment!

Let's Begin.....

Scalp Psoriasis | Products that Work for Type 4 Naturals

Those who have been following me on Forever Natural know that I suffer from scalp psoriasis.

Let me start off by saying that any scalp condition that you may be experiencing should be evaluated by a health professional before you decide to take matters into your own hands. Here’s a listing of products that make my hair look wonderful and keep my condition under control.

Natural Hair Salon Visit Nightmare | From a Stylist That Wouldn’t Listen to One Who Would

You can't touch my natural hair!

I recently visited a salon in my area and inquired if they specialized in styling all textures of natural hair. I was told “yes” and I got very excited because there aren’t many natural hair salons in my area. We started discussing the products they used for their clients. Although they were very good products they may have caused my scalp psoriasis to flare up.

When the stylist asked what I was currently using in my hair I informed her that I use Pine Tar soap to wash my hair, a moisturizing shampoo a hydrating conditioner and then coconut oil because I have psoriasis.

Almost immediately she was disgusted with the products I used. She stated, “I don’t like this brand” and “I don’t like that brand”. That put a sour taste in my mouth! I told her again that I have psoriasis on my scalp and that these are the products that work best for my hair and scalp. I asked if she would she allow me to bring my personal items for my hair. The look on her face was pure disgust and then she got offensive and said, “My salon uses good products”.

Coourage, Pride, Empowerment, Stregnth in Natural Hair

We have all read articles on why people decided to go natural. It could be just something that they want to try because everyone else is doing it or it could be that they really just want to embrace their natural side. Well for me it was a little more personal.

I reached a turning point in my life in 2013. My hair was styled in my signature short pixie haircut with golden brown highlights.

It was simply fierce!

Well, one particular morning something was really wrong. I took off my satin scarf and noticed that some of my hair was literally inside of the scarf. I was scared to death. I could not imagine what was going on with me. I took great care of my hair and thought I was using all of the proper products.
