BGLH Natural Hair Style Icon

I want to send a big shout out and thanks to Meosha (1MeNaturally) for allowing me to be featured on her website, Black Girl With Long Hair.

I am very grateful that I can share my hair journey with others and that I can let the world know that Black Women can grow Long Hair. In my opinion, it is all about how you care for your hair.

Here is my feature article on BGLH. ChelWren- Natural Hair Style Icon.

40 Days and Rainwater

It's been 40 days since I started taking Spring Valley Hair, Skin, and Nails Vitamins. I don't feel that the  vitamins did anything to clear my skin. My nails feel slightly stronger and I can see a difference in my length. I estimate that I grew close to 3/4 of an inch in 40 days.

Today was wash day and I washed with fresh, unfiltered rainwater. I COwashed with V05, detangled with a wide tooth comb, applied Shea Moisture Curl Milk, sealed my ends with Shea Moisture Mist mixed with castor oil, and I finished with Kinky Curly Curling Custard.

My hair looks amazing and I can't wait to continue using rainwater to wash with.

I am so glad to be COwashing only again. I COwashed on Saturday, August 4 and my hair was amazing!

I applied V05 Conditioner, scrubbed my scalp with my fingers and clipped my hair up for the remainder of my shower. Then, I detangled in 4 sections with a wide tooth comb and rinsed.

Once my hair was freshly COwashed, I applied SheaMoisture Curl and Style Milk, sprayed my ends with SheaMoisture Mist mixed with castor oil, and lastly applied Kinky-Curly Curling Custard.

I had an amazing wash and go along with 2nd day hair!

It had been two weeks since my last wash so I COwashed on Saturday, July 28 with V05 Shea Cashmere Conditioner. I left it on while completing my shower duties then I finger combed and rinsed. I don't think I scrubbed my scalp enough because my scalp is itchy and it feels dirty.

After rinsing, I applied SheaMoisture Curl & Style Milk and SheaMoisture Moisture Mist mixed with castor oil.

My hair is so soft and I really feel like my ends are gaining moisture.


I have been taking the Spring Valley Hair, Skin, and Nails vitamins for approximately 2 weeks. My nails seem stronger . Let's see how much hair growth I have when I measure in a couple of weeks.

Hair, Skin, and Nails Vitamins

Today I started taking Spring Valley Hair, Skin, and Nails with Collagen Plus Biotin Vitamins. There are 120 capsules in the bottle and I am supposed to take 3 per day.

In 40 days, I will be sure to update on how my hair, skin, and nails are doing.

As a note: I am having horrible cystic acne right now, hopefully, these vitamins will help clear my skin.

6 Years Natural and Still Learning

Lately, my hair has been really dry and I am hoping that I won't have to cut my ends. I just barely made hip length and I am ecstatic about my new length!

Today, I decided to clarify with baking soda and water. Then, I deep conditioned for four hours with SheaMoisture Organic Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie mixed with SheaMoisture Organic Coconut and Hisbicus Hold and Shine Moisture Mist and an Olive Oil and Castor Oil blend.

I rinsed my hair and applied SheaMoisture Organic Coconut Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk and proceeded with styling my hair in two-strand twists.

I plan to moisturize every night in order to keep my hair from becoming dry.

I hope this plan works.

I also plan to Condition Only for a while to add more moisture.

Waist Length to Bra Strap Length

I made it to waist length again, approaching tail bone and I noticed that my ends were dry and brittle. No amount of moisturizing was going to help so I took scissors to my hair. I am now at Bra Strap Length stretched and all of my hair is roughly the same length. I love the short look and we will see where I go from here. :-)
