Deep conditioning: Use same directions for instant conditioning with the addition of placing a plastic cap on client and placing him/her under a hair dryer for 15-25 minutes.

Protective Mist Bodifier


Directions for comb out:
For best results use after shampooing hair with the Total Body Black Earth Shampoo.
If hair does not need to be shampooed before comb-out, wet the hair and apply a small amount of Enhancing Herbal Conditioner to the hair, rinse it out, towel dry and begin comb-out.

Section the hair into 8-10 sections. Use large twists or plaits to separate the sections. Once this is completed begin at the nape area. Undo one section and spray a generous amount of Protective Mist Bodifier to the hair. When applying the Protective Mist Bodifier to the section of hair, use your fingers to separate and comb through the hair to make sure that the product is thoroughly distributed to that section.

Use a large tooth comb (make sure that the teeth of the comb are not too widely separated. When combing natural hair it is best to use a comb with teeth that are just slightly less than 1/4 of an inch apart from each other). Begin to comb out that section
starting from the ends of the hair and working the tangles out moving upward to the scalp of the section. Once this is completed you should be able to effortlessly comb through that section starting from the scalp down to the ends.

Twist or plait that section back and move on to the next section. Repeat these steps throughout the complete head until all of the sections have been combed out. Now the hair is ready to be styled. NOTE: If you want to blow dry the hair it is best to do so by each section after it has been thoroughly combed out. The Protective Mist Bodifier coats and protects hair strands while blow drying and combing out hair.

The Protective Mist Bodifier as a Daily conditioning spray—Spray on daily or use at least three times a week on scalp and hair for braids, twists, locks, natural hairstyles, up-do’s and transitioning hair. NOTE: when using on braids, twists, locks, make sure that you distribute the Protective Mist Bodifier to the length of the style to make sure that attention is paid to the ends of the your hair. This is vital when the hair has been color treated. Color treated hair needs as much conditioning as possible to help prevent possible breakage.

The Protective Mist Bodifier For extra conditioning for dryer styles, sets and wraps Lightly spray on sets, lock touch ups, wraps, rod sets, etc. before going under the dyer.

Use on all hair types.

Herbal Strengthener


Directions for use:
Use at least twice a week to help eliminate dryness to hair and scalp. Great for use after having a lock touch, twist, set or any style that requires the use of a hair dryer. Once the style is dry, apply the Herbal Strengthener to the scalp for a soothing and cooling sensation.

The Herbal Strengthener does have Petroleum as an ingredient. This may cause some customers to question why would I use Petroleum as an ingredient in the TALIAH WAAJID Black Earth Product line. Petroleum is known for clogging the pours. It is also know for sealing in moisture and other essentials oils that are vital for healthy skin. The scalp is a part of our skin. No, Petroleum is not good to use on your hair alone. Just as Bees wax is not good to use on your hair alone. However, both of these ingredients can work well when combined with the right ingredients that will break them down and make use of their valuable properties.

Some valuable properties of Petroleum:
• Coats and protects skin
• Seals in moisture

Use on all hair types.

African Healing Oyl


The African Healing Oyl is multi-use oil that can be used on the hair and body.

Directions for use on the hair: The African Healing Oyl can be used at least two times a week. Pour into hands, rub together and apply to hair making sure to apply to the ends of the hair as well. For hot oil treatment: After shampooing with the Total Body Black Earth shampoo, towel dry and separate the hair into sections starting at the nape area. Pour a liberal amount of African Healing Oyl into your hands and distribute to the hair. Do this until African Healing Oyl has been applied to all of the hair. Cover the hair with a plastic cap and place client under the dryer for at least 20 minutes. Rinse lightly and apply a small amount of Enhancing Herbal Conditioner, distribute with fingers and rinse.

Directions for use on the body: The African Healing Oyl can be used everyday on the body for use after showering or bathing. Towel dry and apply to your body. Great to use as massage oil as well as for hands, feet and cuticles.

Moisture Clenz


This product is excellent for cleansing, sanitizing and refreshing the scalp when you are not able to shampoo the hair using water. Great for clients that wear locks, twists, braids and weaves. This product is great because you can clean your scalp without disturbing your hairstyle.

The Moisture Clenz does contain alcohol as an ingredient. This may cause some customers to question why would I use alcohol as an ingredient in the TALIAH WAAJID Black Earth Product line. Alcohol when associated with hair care is known for drying the hair and scalp. Alcohol is also known for cleaning and sanitizing immediately upon contact with skin. Doctors use alcohol when sanitizing the skin before pricking it with a needle. Alcohol is not good to use on the scalp alone for cleaning because of possibility of drying the hair and scalp. However it is important that the scalp be clean and free from dirt and built up oil so that there is a good environment for hair growth and healthy hair. The percentage of alcohol used in the Moisture Clenz is low. When properly used the Moisture Clenz will not cause dryness to the hair or scalp. Once used immediately follow up with the Protective Mist Bodifier, the Herbal Strengthener or the African Healing Oyl. We also use other moisturizers in the Moisture Clenz that help combat the dryness caused by using alcohol. We chose to use alcohol in the Moisture Clenz because we did not find another ingredient that cleansed the hair as well as alcohol. Other natural ingredients we tried did not remove odor and did not clean the scalp well enough to sanitize it. The ingredients we chose for the Moisture Clenz produced a product that cleanses and sanitizes the scalp.

Directions for use: Spray directly on scalp in between part. Use a damp cloth to rub away dirt. Repeat throughout the entire hairstyle. Use whenever needed. Also helps eliminates itching.

Crinkles & Curls


Crinkles & Curls is a foaming pomade used for setting and holding natural hair, lock and twist styles. The holding agent in Crinkles & Curls is formulated to give twice as much hold as regular setting lotions. Unlike many other setting lotions and sprays, Crinkles & Curls does not have any alcohol and does not leave any build up on the hair and scalp.

Directions for use: For locks, twists, natural hair and chemically processed hair. After shampooing with Total Body Black Earth shampoo and conditioning the hair with Enhancing Herbal Conditioner and slightly spraying the hair with the Protective Mist Bodifier, apply a small amount of Crinkles & Curls to a section of the hair. Use your fingers to distribute the Crinkles & Curls throughout the section. At this point it depends on what look you are going for. You can Twist, Straw set, Rod, Plait or use Curlers on that section. Sit the client under the dryer until hair is completely dry. Remove the rods and apply the Herbal Strengthener to the scalp and style. Repeat throughout the entire head until the set is complete. You can also use Crinkles on transitioning hair. TIP: When the hair is in the transitioning state, and you want to achieve a natural look, apply the Crinkles and Curls as directed. Do either a two-strand twist or a fingertip twist to the ends of the section and rod the ends of that section that still has chemically treated hair. NOTE: The hair must be at least halfway in it’s natural state. Sit the client under the dryer until hair is completely dry. Remove the rods and apply the Herbal Strengthener to the scalp and style.

Use on all hair types.

Lock It Up


Lock It Up is an alcohol-free styling gel that was formulated to hold curly hair in place without applying a hard feel or hold. Lock It Up can be used to start and maintain Locks and twists. Lock It Up can also be used for defining the curl pattern in natural hair as well as for styling and setting natural hair.
