About This Journey 


Greetings! I'm Tina, and I'm here to share a bit of my journey with you. Back in 2012, I made a bold decision to undergo what's commonly known as a "big chop." This involved cutting off all the damaged or relaxed hair, leaving only my natural hair behind. I vividly recall the moment I took those scissors to my hair, realizing I had about 4 inches left afterward. It was a leap into the unknown, fueled by inspiration from YouTube tutorials and a determination to embrace my natural beauty.

Reflecting on the state of my hair at the time, it's clear it was in dire need of some TLC. March 8, 2012, marked the day I took matters into my own hands. Armed with shampoo, conditioner, and trusty scissors, I embarked on a transformation journey. With each snip, a mix of shock and pride coursed through me. The initial fear melted away, replaced by a sense of empowerment. After all, I reasoned, I rarely wore my natural hair out anyway – opting instead for weaves and wigs – so why not make the change?

In the following months and years, I embraced protective styles like crochets, weaves, and wigs while my natural hair grew out. Though I've since reduced my reliance on these styles, they still serve as occasional options for switching up my look or safeguarding my hair's health.

The image you see is a testament to my journey, capturing the results of a big chop and subsequent trims. Fed up with salon visits that left my hair damaged and my progress stunted, I took matters into my own hands. Through experimentation and determination, I developed my hair oil – a nourishing blend designed to stimulate the scalp, infuse strands with vital nutrients, and provide the moisture our hair craves. Before-and-after photos stand as a testament to its efficacy.

My message to you? Don't fear the journey – embrace it. Despite its challenges, my hair transformation has been nothing short of transformative, teaching me invaluable lessons.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are all of your products natural?
    Yes. Always do a patch test on your skin and wait a few hours because although essential oils have great health benefits, you want to consult with your doctor if you are taking medication to make sure they are safe for you to use. Some may be sensitive to their properties.
  • Can I use the butter and the oil interchangeably?
  • Can these be used for beards and dreads?
    Yes, preferably the oil. Use it diligently and wait patiently for results.
  • Can I mix this with different products?
    Yes, but test the butter on your hand first with the other product. If it rubs in smooth like butter then yes. If it curds then no.
  • Where do you get your products?
    A distributor from the African Island
  • Does this help with hair loss and men baldness?
    The benefits are endless. The herbs here listed are beneficial in hair loss, combating DHT ( Dihydrotestosterone ) and thinning hair'.
  • How do you use the butter since it is thick?
    I melt a tablespoon using the double boiler method then section my hair to finger it through the curls.
  • Can I use both the butter and oil on my skin and hair?
    Yes, but, the oil only comes in a 2oz so the butter would be more useful for the skin because a little goes a long way. I use the butter in my hair as well though.
  • Are you all-natural? If so, what were your challenges and for how long?"
    I am, I started in 2012. The challenges were allowing stylists who were not knowledgeable about my hair to do it. They did not know how to comb it, clip the ends without being scissor happy, or flat iron it without burning it. The set-back was heat damage and a second chop. The journey and the reward are great because I took my hair journey in my own hands.
  • What would you say to someone on the fence about going natural and a BC?
    Do it! It's challenging but, rewarding :) Don't hesitate especially if you are already wearing wigs and weaves. No one sees your hair anyway. Chop off all of the relaxed hair, wear a wig until someone who can braid will braid it for you (Not tight!) Use the oil or butter while you allow you natural hair to grow. Take care of it. Shampoo it, Condition it. Do not get frustrated when you see those natural curls coming in ( New Growth ) embrace it , learn it, try different products to see what works with it or what your hair likes. Don't be a product junky ( like I was ) Test a combination on your inner palm first. For ex ecostyler and Shea Moisture see if it melts in your skin like butter. If it does you can try that combination. If it curds like cottage cheese, it will curd in your hair as well. Don't use it.
  • What sets you apart from other brands?
    My products are prayed for each time a batch is made. The brand name Corinthians1115 speaks. (For her hair is a covering for her. It is her glory. If you quote it as you are believing for your hair to grow, know that the word says if two or more touch and agree it shall be done. I am one, you are two :). Let's be real, no one wants to really be walking around insecure about their hair.
  • Is your butter for stretch marks too?
    The butter will soften the marks and scars with consistency. Give yourself at least 3 to 4 months, take before and after pics. Now you may see the oils coming through the butter just take your finger and stir in all of that goodness. Be patient.

Q. How does the boiler method work for the shea butter?

A. You ake a small pot and fill it halfway with water. You take either a glass bowl or another small pot and place it ontop of the pot of water, then add a tablespoon or more to the top bowl/pot and allow to melt.

Q. How long did it take to decide on the big chop and what were the benefits?

A. Before I did the big chop it, took me about a year to decide if it was really what I wanted to do but, looking back, I wish I would have done it sooner. It just feel great to see your natural hair and learn about the pattern of your curls. It will be lots of trial and error but, stick with it, try different products, buy samples before investing in so many different products to see what works.

Q. My hair is dry, can I use the butter in my hair?

A> You may be able to, the butter I use for moisturizing mostly, nevertheless, I have melted the butter to twist my have after it had been shampooed and conditioned and my hair loved it. I did not use it to style it, only for moisturizing before adding other products to it, like Cantu pudding or eco styler gel..

Q. How long did it take your hair to grow after the big chop?

A. 3 months to see good growth. I had crochets put in and allowed it to grow out.
