Crusty Edges? Could Be Seborrheic Dermatitis!

Greetings, everyone! I had been trying to think of a common issue that many are facing with their scalps to do a video on. Then it came to me! Seborrheic Dermatitis!

It’s something that I have dealt with on and off for many years and was finally able to combat! It’s a very common skin condition that mostly affects the area where the forehead ends and the scalp begins. Many things can trigger this but it’s many due to a pH imbalance on the skin and in the hair follicle.

I wanted to share the little bit I know about it with you! Hopefully, you will find some helpful information!

Maintaining My Barber Cut!

Hello, lovelies! As I shared with you all a couple of months ago (on YouTube), I got a drastic haircut. Many call it the Big Chop but I just consider it a regular old hair cut. I was natural before the cut so I wasn’t embarking on anything drastically new except this new fire cut!😎

I’ve had short hair before so I didn’t think much about keeping it up. However, I have been asked more than once how I maintain my shorter hair. In this video I discuss why I decided to cut my hair, my maintenance regimen and the costs of maintaining a shorter do!

I enjoy interacting with you all! Any questions and positive suggestions are welcomed! Thanks for checking me out!

Dusting Ends! (Revisited)

Greetings, my dears! Back in May 2010 (😰), I did my original post about dusting my ends (link). I had always been urged to do a video but just could never get it together!! Well, SURPRISE!! I finally did a quick, last-minute video of me dusting my ends.

Just as a refresher, dusting is like trimming your ends but not taking as much off. I personally have 4 classifications for cutting when it comes to my hair!

1. Spot cutting- That’s cutting a knot out here and there or where you see a problem area.

2. Dusting- Cutting about an inch or less of your ends to reduce tangles and shedding.

3. Trim- removing and inch or more of your ends. You are not cutting to achieve a style, just to remove the dead ends. (This can be done to refresh a cut!)

4. Hair cut- This is cutting to remove bulk and/or to achieve a particular look or style.

Moving back to dusting, I have a short little video showing how I usually dust. I also have it uploaded on my YouTube channel so if you don’t already follow me (The Hair Garden), please do!😊

I hope you found the video helpful! I am excited to finally share more of my natural hair regimen with you all! I can’t wait to post the next video! Thanks for stopping by!
