Yet another QB Review

Winter always means down time for my hair. When I say ‘down time’, I mean it’s hat season. Don’t expect anything too cute from me. This winter, I’ve pretty much kept my hair tamed in two styles: plaited   pig tails or double-strand twists. That’s it. The cold weather really does affect my hair, and I’ve noticed that my eldest girl (whose hair is like mine) has the same issue. Despite it all, our tresses are healthy and thriving and I’ve become even more of a Qhemet Biologics fan than I was before. A couple of months ago, I purchased the last three items from the website that I had yet to try. I don’t know why I didn’t splurge on them before, but now they are a part of my regular line up. Let;s check ’em out…

Karkady Tea Replenishing Mist-  I’m starting with the mist because it was my biggest surprise.  By now, any one who follows this blog knows that I am a HUGE QB fan.  Everything I have tried has worked well with my hair, but I just never gave the mist much thought.  I still can’t say why I bought it, but I did and boy am I hooked.  Many of us natural ladies know (or should know) that water is our friend.  Unfortunately, tap water (with all its chemicals and chlorine) is not. I don’t have to use water to dampen my hair anymore for styling.  My first time using the mist produced fabulous (yes, fabulous) results.  I washed my hair and put in my regular mix of Biologics products; however, I also spritzed my hair with the mist and worked it in really good before twisting.  The next morning, I took out my twists and found my hair so soft, silky and shiny, with gorgeous waves. I couldn’t stop touching it!  Several co-workers asked what I did to my hair.  KTRM is now a staple.

Tea Tree & Grapeseed Therapeutic Pomade- Winter isn’t only harsh on my hair and skin, it’s  hard on my scalp.  My scalp needs only half a reason to start flaking, so I really have to be diligent with how I care for it.  I started using this pomade because I was seeing those few tell-tale flakes as the weather became colder.  So far, so good.  I have to say, it isn’t my only line of defense in preventing dry scalp, but it works well and it’s light.  I would buy it again, no problem.

Castor & Moringa Softening Serum- Great, great stuff!  Castor oil, in my opinion, is one of those oils that works wonders.  If you consider that the castor bean itself is toxic and a hazard even to reap, it is amazing that the oil from such a bean is so beneficial to us.  I bought the serum to protect my hair (especially my ends) and to stop them from getting brittle.  I have to say, I got more than I bargained for. The oil  has become something I use on my children daily.  My daughter’s hands became frost-bitten (a painful condition as anyone who has experienced it knows) a short while ago due to her refusal to wear her gloves.  I began treating her hands with the serum, followed by A&D ointment twice a day.  Her hands have healed beautifully without me having to put prescription creams or the like on them.  The serum has also become what I use to protect my kids’ faces before they go out in the cold each morning.  My mother used to use Vaseline or A&D on us.  I find the serum works terrific, and protects their skin  from getting chapped without having the ‘shiny face’ my friends and I had as children.

There are, of course, other products that I still support and enjoy using.  They are currently awaiting warmer days when I can style my hair and not have to don a toque.
