Revisiting Old Natural Hair Products

Revisiting Old Natural Hair Products



No, not to an old boyfriend or husband.  Goodness...if you left them in the past then they need to STAY in the past.  I mean back to an old trick that was working JUST fine until you found another great trick and before you knew it you stopped using the old one.  Do you even REMEMBER why you abandoned it in the first place?  Yea, I'm talking about tricks, techniques, and products that were working just fine earlier in your Natural hair journey.

Perfect example: 

I love Kinky Curly products.  It's no secret.  Well, when I first started using them I only co-washed with Knot Today Conditioner.  I hadn't tried AO (Aubrey Organics) yet.  I was co-washing and lightly rinsing in the shower before applying KC Curly Custard after the shower.  It gave me such tangle-free curls that I was hooked!

3 Things Every Woman Should do Before Straightening Curly Hair



From weaves and hair color to protective styling, the choices for women who wear their hair natural these days are endless.

For many women looking to change things up a bit, a popular alternative is to wear their naturally curly, wavy or kinky locks straight. But, be warned. While the ability to change your look one day to the next offers great versatility, this kind of styling flexibility doesn’t come without its challenges.

Heat damaged hair is one of the greatest risks that women who switch between naturally curly and straight styles face. The heat needed to straighten the hair can cause breakage and, in the some extreme cases, permanently alter the curl pattern.

Let me holla at all the thin haired naturals right now.  As one of you, I know how frustrating it can be to get the volume you crave that some other naturals take for granted or even sometimes HATE!  Life ain't fair but natural hair is versatile so finding the right technique is sometimes all you need to rock the style you desire.

AuCurls Naturelle created a simple yet elegant style that requires a little twisting, perm rods and patience.  I don't have any perm rods but after watching this video not only did I feel the need the share but I will be picking some up quite quickly.

8 Amazing Shampoo Bars For Coily and Curly Hair

8 Amazing Shampoo Bars For Coily and Curly Hair


Cleansing is a regular part of caring for natural hair.  Healthy hair requires it to be cleaned regularly but outside of that your choice on how to do so is up to you.  Many simply use shampoo, cowashes, clays and even some use only water but for many naturals they are happy using shampoo but not in the traditional sense.

Shampoo bars are an all natural conditioning shampoo in a solid bar form.  They are made from “all natural” ingredients and naturals love them because  they tend to be free of sulfates and silicones and are made from moisturizing oils and gentle cleansers.  They last longer than liquid shampoos, are biodegradable, safe to use and nourish the hair and scalp.

Is Your "Baby Hair" A Sign of Breakage?

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?
