In the wonderful world of sleek and unique hairstyling, we admire the creativity of polished twists, braid-outs, perm or flexi rod sets, and flat twists alike. Whether it's one of our favorite YouTubers or a beautiful Instagram famous naturalista, one of the first things we notice is their baby hair perfection--also known as having edges laid for the gawds.
However, the real question about baby hairs are what do they actually say about the health of our hair. Are they a sign of breakage or simply new growth?

We’ve Come a Long Way Naturalistas!



In the 1970’s the Afro became a symbol of power and culture unique for Black Americans. Fast forward ten years later we segued into Soul Glo, Jerri Curls, texturizers and permanent processing which redefined our sense of style and uniqueness. Some will argue those who chemically altered their hair were sell outs while others will hold steadfast to the ease of managing the Motherland mane. Regardless of the side, our hair culture was changed forever.

How to Effectively Detangle Transitioning Hair


Question
How do I keep my natural and relaxed hair from becoming a tangled mess when I wash it? I'm only about three to four months post relaxer while I only use heat on my hair once a month and when I wash it becomes a dry, tangled, and unmanageable mess.

Natural hair extensions are becoming increasing popular and for good reason. Not everyone wants straight extensions anymore.  We want variety and whether you are rocking a TWA or hair to your tailbone, extension can be fun, easy and a great way to add color or length to your hair. 

HerGivenHair is a brand new natural hair extension line the lovely Pure Estrogen had the opportunity to test.  She was mostly rocking an Afro with the extensions but wanted to changed things up a bit.  I'm glad she did because she is allowing us to see the versatility with natural hair 4C extensions.

5 Hair Tools Every Natural Needs For Easier Detangling



Natural hair means detangling sessions as our natural coils, kinks and curls love one another to the point of entanglement.  It is a nice way of saying our hair tangles unmercifully between attached and shed hairs.  Most naturals dread detangling as it can be a slow and sometimes painful task but ask anyone who has put off detangling too long and you will quickly find out just how important it is to do it!

Some naturals only spend a little time detangling (namely me) while others can spend hours.  Detangling can turn your washday into a nightmare but I'm not just saying this to upset you.  I'm here to put a smile on your face because there are some tools out here that can make those sessions much more pleasant!
