African Pride Olive Miracle Hair Growth

OMG I love this oil for sealing . Sorry my Proclaim  Natural 7 Oil has been currently fired. I'm actually just starting to get into African pride products and just like the other products this did not let me down.

When I don't seal with my Shea butter /Cocoa butter mix this is what I'm using. Product claims to prevent breakage and promote hair growth. Now as far as the hair growth I have no idea because I do not apply it to the scalp. But I do believe that it helps in preventing breakage.

Claimed Benefits
  • Rich in extra virgin olive oil
  • Promotes a healthy scalp
  • Stops breakage

African Pride Olive Miracle Growth Oil is rich in extra virgin olive oil for the ultimate in silky smooth, deep conditioned hair and a moisture-rich, healthy scalp. Use regularly to help stop breakage, split-ends, and dryness.

African Pride Olive Miracle Growth Oil is excellent for skin, body, and nail health. Growth oil is also great as a hot oil treatment.

Relaxer Day






I ended up relaxing my hair this Valentines Day.  Crazy because I relaxed my hair last year on Valentines Day lol. My last relaxer was about October 21st or 22nd so that made me a little over 17 weeks post. I used to boxes to relax my hair.

I did my normal routine.


  1. Section my hair in four sections
  2. Apply Serum to the length and ends of my hair to avoid damage. Making sure I do not apply any on my new growth
  3. Apply Relaxer
  4. Rinse fully 
  5. Before neutralizing I apply Aphogee 2 min Reconstructor for 2 mins then rinse
  6. Shampoo with a neutralizing shampoo
  7. Deep condition 
  8. Style no heat/heat
That's it !!! I'm  still following the same steps because that is what works for me.

I decided to take a short break from the hair units. So I braided my hair in 3 braids for a braid out .

Elasta Qp



Seems like I have been using the Elasta Qp Mango Butter forever. I'm still in love with it. It keeps my hair so moisturized and its not too heavy either. This winter I have been using it then sealing with Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter mix I purchased from Coastal Scents .  My hair is loving it !!!



Now the Elasta QP Leave In H2 Leave-in Moisture Sealing Conditioner is great ! Its extremely light. So light that it comes in a spray bottle. It doesn't way down the hair yet it softens and makes it easier to detangle. Now I will be honest its just not thick enough for my hair during the colder months. I prefer using this leave in when I'm flat ironing my hair and I don't want to use products that will weigh my hair down. 

The shampoo that I tried was the Elasta Qp Olive Oil and Mango Butter Shampoo . It didn't strip my hair at all and it left it feeling soft and moisturized. I will say while using it you will have to use a clarifying shampoo once a month. I felt like it was so gentle that it didn't deep clean my hair.

I truly have mixed feelings the Elasta Qp DPR- 11 . It is a protein conditioner. It just didn't do anything for my hair. I've used it with my steamer and with my heating cap. My hair is left feeling a little hard and stripped. Which is most likely caused by the protein in this conditioner . I have to follow up with a moisturizing deep conditioner whenever I use this.


Last but definitely not least Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Leave- in conditioner. OMG I'm in love. This deep conditioner is so moisturizing. Its creamy and my hair stays moisturized till the next wash. It makes detangling a breeze and it softens my new growth like no other . Honestly the Elasta Qp Mango Butter Moisturizer and this Leave in are my favorites from Elasta Qp .
