Believe it or not alopecia comes in many different forms, and today I am going to tell you a little bit about all of them.
1. Alopecia Areata: This occurs when the immune system attacks hair follicles causing sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular bald patch, it may also be brought on by severe stress. Alopecia run in my family and every women in my family has been bald at some point. Thankfully with dedication and consistency I was able to create Bare Your Hair all natural products and was able to fully grow my hair back, without experiencing any more hair loss.
2. Alopecia Universalis: Is a medical condition which involves the loss of all body hair. This includes eyebrows, eyelashes, chest hair, armpit hair, and pubic hair. It is the most severe form of alopecia areata. Dealing with total hair loss, it may not be as easy for that hair to grow back. However there are different medical treatments that you can look into for hair growth.
3. Alopecia Totalis: Is a skin condition that causes hair loss. It isn't the same as localized alopecia areata. Alopecia totalis causes complete baldness of the scalp.

For today's post I wanted to do something different, and tell you how I style/ wear my hair during the week. The styles vary from week to week depending on what I have going on. I made this blog post super quick and not too detailed just to save time, so that you're not reading all day,
Sunday- I start off by putting my hair into two sections and then washing it (twice). Once I am done shampooing I apply my deep conditioner and detangle my hair, when that is fully applied I sit under the dryer for 30 minutes and rinse with warm water.
Styling- I like to do four sections when styling. For each section I start by applying my leave in, brush that through. Once my leave in is in I go in with my styler and make sure that each strand is coated by smoothing the product in, and then I twist up my hair. I repeat this until my hair is done and then to seal in the moisture and add shine I apply my Bare Your Hair Lavender Oil.
Monday &Tuesday- My hair is still pretty fresh so I don`t really do anything to my hair, if I have somewhere to go then I will just put my hair in a ponytail.
Wednesday- Now that my hair has had some time to set and dry, it is time to take my twists out. Before I start taking my hair down, I apply a little bit more of my Bare Your Hair Lavender Oil to my hair and slowly start to take the twists apart. I make sure and take my time because I don`t want any frizz. Once my hair is done I give it a quick shake to get the curls to lay, and then I am done.
Thursday- All I do is take my bonnet off, shake my hair and that`s it, sometimes I will pin one side back.
Friday- By this time I am pretty much over my hair, so I will either wear it in a bun or in a ponytail. Its super simple and easy. I spray some rose water on my hair and then take a small amount of my Bare Your Hair Buttercream and run that through my hair for a little bit of moisture and then gather all my hair into the style.
Saturday- I am still wearing my hair in my ponytail, I don`t apply any more product.
Sunday- I will wash my hair and do another style whether its mini twists or a braid out. If I'm feeling lazy and don`t wash my hair, then I will just keeping wearing it in a bun or ponytail until I feel like washing it.
How do you style your hair throughout the week?

Alopecia Areata occurs when the immune system attacks hair follicles causing sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular bald patch, it may also be brought on by severe stress.
What some people don't know is that Alopecia is also hereditary. Every women in my family has suffered from alopecia including me.
I noticed my first bald spot on my wedding day, and a friend of mine colored it in with an eye liner pencil. I was SO embarrassed and I couldn’t enjoy my day because I was worried that someone would notice my bald spot. That was December 30th and by June 29th all of my hair was completely gone!
There are many different treatment for alopecia including steroids', shots to the scalp, and many natural options.
After years of being bald I wanted to finally try to grow my hair back.. the natural way. Through trail and error I was finally able to develop two products with wholesome all natural ingredients that allowed me to grow my hair back.
Bare Your Hair Peppermint Oil and Bare Your Hair Butter Cream, were the foundational products that took my healthy hair growth journey to the next level.
With dedication, CONSISTENCY and all natural products I was finally able to grow my hair back.
Hair does NOT grow overnight, nor will you see significant grow with the first two weeks. If you build a routine and really hone in on taking your healthy hair growth journey seriously you will reap the amazing benefits.

Hope you are doing GREAT!
Today I am going to go through some essential products that you need when traveling with natural hair. So depending on the length of the trip I bring different things based on what style I am currently wearing.
Products I bring:
Overnight trip: If I am staying overnight I will likely just bring an oil with me just because its a quick trip, and I will apply the oil to my hair either that night or the following morning for a little extra shine.
2-3 days: This is a little longer of a trip so I am definitely going to be packing a leave in conditioner or water, and oil. Depending on the style you can also bring some gel if you need to re-define some of your curls. Since I normally wear twists, I will just spritz my hair with some water and or leave in conditioner (you can use both) and make sure that is really worked into my hair and then I will seal that in with some of my Bare Your Hair Peppermint Oil which will also give me shine.
4+ days: Staying four or more days sometimes requires a few more products. I will do the exact same steps from above, but If my hair needs more moisture than that then I will bring along some of my Bare Your Hair ButterCream. I will add that after I have spritzed my hair with water or leave in conditioner and then I will add my oil after to seal everything in.
Once I have finished my hair, I will probably wrap my twists with some bobby pins to keep my twists streched and then add a scarf to lay down any fly always, and to keep the style laid and smooth.
If I am traveling to the beach I will still follow the exact same steps from day 4, and I will also bring a conditioner or a shampoo to wash my hair after beach days.
You can always customize this routine and products that you use based on you hair style and the products that you like.
