Hi, I'm Sally and I'm going to talk to you today about your natural
hair, and shampooing your natural hair.
My hair is pretty much dirty, I have been like this for the last
past two and a half weeks,
and I've only shampooed my hair every
But lately, I don't know, I've just gotten little
lazy and decided not to shampoo my hair,
and I guess because life took
over and work.
Making everybody else beautiful,
and taking care of scalp disorders
and growing the hair back.
So anywho, I'm gonna talk to you today about my shampoo,
do I shampoo my hair,
Oh God what I'm I rambling about, my regiment how I shampoo.
So anywho, I shampoo my hair with,
this not it.
I shampoo my hair with Lisa Akbari Shampoo.
This is a cleansing clarify and bounce shampoo,
and the pH in this
is a 4.5 to a 5.5, and it's the same pH as your hair and your scalp
depending on the body.
But it is the same so it will make the hair feel just a little bit
Some people say it made my hair feel hard, but it actually didn't make
your hair feel hard, it took your hair down to the lowest pH,
the proper pH it's supposed to be at.
And so you're not really used to feeling that,
you're used to feeling
other things on your hair like moisturizing shampoo,
conditioning shampoos and shampoos that have sulphates
in it, and silicons, parabens and all that so.
This product right here does not have any of that in it. Let me turn that around,
it doesn't have that in it.
What I love about this shampoo is the first ingredient is oil in
stead of water.
When you're using shampoos,
when you think about it the first ingredient
in most shampoos you buy on the shelf,
or in the stores are going
to the, because this is a on the shelf.
Most of the shampoos are going to have water first.
Which we think water is oh it's hydrating,
it's this and it's that,
well hydrate here when you think about a hydrator, when you're thinking about
hydrator, you're thinking about hydrating the body, you wanna
moisturized the hair but you don't want to use it excuse me,
don't want to have a have a little allergy problems. So if you see me
doing this, I'm not on drugs.
I'm just rubbing my nose.
But you want to use a shampoo that has an oil in first and not water.
How easy is it to find a shampoo that has oil first?
She's the first one that I actually found that has an actual oil
first instead of water.
The next one is going to be Jane Carter,
which I have used her products
but hers is not oil,
it is deionized water in her bottle first,
and that water is the purest water that you can possibly get that
one in distilled water.
To which I'm not gonna go into the chemistry of water which I can,
I can break all of that down for you in another day,
now we're gonna talk about just shampooing
the hair. Like I said you look at my hair and it's in very rare form.
My clients will say, oh your hair is pretty,
because I always have it
pulled up in like a little bun,
and this up and it's fluffy and pretty
and all that.
But right now it's just all over my head because I'm getting ready
So after I shampoo my hair what I'm going to do is when I shampoo
my hair excuse me let me back up a little bit.
When I shampoo my hair,
I do use my fingers.
I do not scratch my scalp I use my fingers,
as I'm shampooing through,
I'm pulling with my fingers.
I'm not getting my hair and wadding it up all over my head I'm going
through it with my fingers.
I'm using my fingers as a comb in my hair.
After I shampoo my hair with the shampoo which I'm going to use
different shampoos, so therefore my I'm not just going to use Lisa's
shampoo, I'm gonna use a variety of shampoos.
So therefore you all
will get a idea of the shampoos, or the products that
are out there on the shelf,
or in the stores natural products.
So after I shampoo my hair, I shampoo my hair probably a bit, maybe five
minutes or so. Does it require that?
Yes for me, I have eczema in my scalp, actually I have eczema on
So my scalp is my skin.
So I shampoo with, no let me back up a little bit.
When I shampoo I want to make sure that my scalp is really,
cleansed of debris and pollutants.
So I get a good scalp massage in when I'm shampooing my scalp.
I do not use any conditioning cleansers because
the conditioning cleansers does not remove any build up or residue that's
on my scalp or my hair.
That's pretty much anybody who has any type of scalp disorders, conditioning
cleansers really does not help the scalp or the hair.
And a person who has dermatitis or psoriasis, myself like eczema, or
even a yeast on their scalp, or dandruff or anything like that.
Why am I rambling?
The cowashes, excuse me, cowashes does not cleanse the
scalp, and I'm not scratching I'm rubbing my scalp.
So I don't use my finger nails I use the ball of the tip of my finger.
do use this type of shampoo, a clarifier and because I have eczema
I have to go back in and moisturize my scalp and my hair.
If I don't it's going to dry it out,
that's another reason why about
the water because water is going to dry out my scalp,
and I already
have dry skin with the eczema.
So you don't want to use a water based shampoo first, you want to
use an oil based.
Because the oil is going to lock in the moisture.
The water is going to dry it out,
even though it's a hydrator it's
going to dry it out.
Just like you take a shower or a bath, what happens when you get
out of the shower?
After you bathe and after you've cleansed your body,
you get out,
you dry off and then what happens?
You dry out, yes you dry it out. So when your skin starts to look
like it's really ashy or it looks
like it's about to crack, so you have to go again and put in
moisturizer back on top of your skin.
So you don't want to use a oil in water mixture on your hair and scalp
as a hydrator you want to use moisturizers.
So after I shampoo I follow up with a penetrating deep conditioner.
This conditioner from Lisa Akbari also it is a,
it's a deep penetrating
protein moisturizer and stabilizing conditioner.
I'll turn that around and with this one you already have the added
protein in the hair.
You want to use a protein that is not a liquid, you don't want anything hard
because when you're using liquid
if you use egg on your hair,
what will happen with that egg, it's going to make the hair hard.
So say if someone's hair is falling out, it is breaking,
oh, you should use a protein conditioner,
or you need protein on your
Okay yeah, you do need protein, but you want to be a cream.
You do not want it to be a liquefied protein because that protein
is good, but when it comes down to the natural hair because the
hair is already dry itself.
So you want to use something that is naturally going to actually have a smaller
molecule and penetrate better.
And also moisturize,
so you want a protein and a moisturizer mix.
You don't want a protein by itself.
So with that I'm gonna sit under the dryer for approximately, about 10,
Let's see what it says right here,
it says instant conditioner for 60 seconds.
But I don't want an instant conditioner, I want something that's going
to be a little more lasting,
which is gonna be like I said deeper conditioner so that is going to be
10 to 15 minutes under the dryer with a plastic cap or I can go under
the steamer with it.
Steamer, no cap.
So I'm going to sit under the drier about 10 to
15 minutes, and after
that I'm want to rinse my hair out with luke warm water not hot
water not cold water.
And the reason why I'm gonna go under the dryer or the steamer not
using a towel, or walking around with a towel on my hair for an hour is
because it doesn't do anything.
only get the time that's allotted.
The time that's allotted is all that you need to do.
You don't need to walk around the house for 45 minutes.
You need to walk around the house for an hour or whatever because
once your cuticles are open with the heat, they're going
to close from the cold.
So you gotta think about the as you're walking around the house all that
time your cuticles have closed.
So the conditioner is no longer penetrating into your hair shaft,
it's just sitting on top of your shaft it's not going
into the cuticles, or is not wanting inside of the cortex.
So the only way you wanna get that actual penetration is from heat.
The heat is going to lift your cuticular layer up it's just like some shingles on a roof,
gonna lift it up and the conditioner is going to go down inside
of your cuticles.
So try to get into the cortex and using itself as a filler.
Fillers are pretty much, they're filling in what your hair is missing.
That's what a filler is, that's what your conditioner is.
So anyway after the 15 minutes I'm going to rinse my hair out.
After I rinse my hair out, I'm going to follow up with which I don't
have is the same thing but it's Lisa Akbari's Hair Vitamins.
Once I spray it on my hair, I going to spray that.
I may use this like a spray bottle.
I'm going to spray this
on my hair, going from the shaft the hair closest to the shaft
all the way
down to the ends of the hair, and I'm going comb through.
So anyway, I'm about to go
and shampoo and once I shampoo I'll be
back with more recordings to show you how to apply the product.
Okay, now that I have shampooed my hair,
you all are catching me
like in really really rare form, no one has actually ever seen me with
my hair wet.
So what I'm about to do now is use the conditioner which I'm about
to go under the dryer for about like I said 10 to 15 minutes,
Right here you can see how much conditioner I have in my hand and
I'm going to use this on
panels of my hair which I'm gonna take my hair and I'm going to
pull as you all can see that.
Taking the conditioner and I'm making sure that the conditioner is
going through out my entire hair shaft.
I'm going to take some more conditioner.
And I'm going to pull through.
So this is basically what I do to any of my clients,
and as you
see I have little tangles, what did I do?
I separated it.
My hair is pretty much, is not tangled, which it looks like probably was but it's not.
Do I detangle my hair all the time? No I don't do anything to make
my hair tangle up.
Most of the time when we get the tangles in your hair,
you're doing a certain styles
on the hair to actually make it tangle.
So as you can see, you can see the conditioner actually in my hair.
So you want to actually be able to see the conditioner in your hair
as you're doing it.
Separate, and pull.
I'm not pulling hard, so don't think I'm pulling my hair really really hard.
You got a little shedage, which I'm supposed to shed,
because I have not shampooed my hair
like I said in the last past two weeks, so I'm going to have some
And let's see if I can do this side over here.
It's missing me, because I didn't touch it, so it's kinda mad at me. Pulling
through, getting rid of tangles.
Let me stoop down here a little bit because I am standing
and stooping down it actually me look a lot shorter.
Yeah, it make
me look a little bit short.
Which I'am short I'm like 5'1'' which some people try to
discredit me, and give me 4'11'', which I'm not 4'11'', I get
a little bit upset about that.
So I'm still working my way through my hair.
Yeah, you can't see my face anymore.
So back on that side of again.
this is my shrinkage,
as you can see my hair is a little
bit past my shoulders, it's actually down here somewhere.
My shrinkage is just mad crazy. I don't like my shrinkage.
I don't like my shrinkage, but I love my hair.
I won't go back to relaxer for nothing.
So anyway, so now that you've seen me actually apply my product,
conditioner, now I'm gonna apply the conditioners to my edges.
Sometime you feel like you're using the entire bottle
on your head because you have so much hair,
just imagine me and my
Majority of them use probably a bottle.
Not gonna name names though.
So now I have applied my conditioner to my hair and now I'm about
to put on a plastic cap so that I can look like I have a jerry
curl, and I'm about to sit under the dryer and penetrate.
Sounds a little horrible,
but that's what I'm gonna do.
gonna go under there, and I'm going to allow my hair to get what
it's been missing.
So now that you've seen that I've conditioned,
I've shampooed, deep conditioned
and you may see another video of me actually putting the moisturizer
on my hair, and actually getting ready to set it.
But you're not going to see my Miss Sealy braids, negative.
No one see those.
