Some years back people used to have dense hair covering their entire head. That was at a time when less chemicals and cosmetics were used for hair care :wink: But now people are continuously complaining of hair loss and thinning of hair. .The reason behind it is the use of chemicals that damages the hair strength and reduces the volume of our hair. Even the continuous use of hair styling blowers contributes to your hair getting damaged and plucked easily while combing. It is really sad to observ...

Your Naturalista Starter Pack I realize I should have posted this a while ago. It is a list of the essential things you need as a Naturalista, especially if you are just beginning your journey; it would help make it easier in a way. I started my hair journey in an ignorant way. Not paying attention to the little things that would have helped my hair grow better and longer. And in the end, I paid the price for my ignorance. What equipment do you need? *Spritz Bottle / Spray Bottl...

Moisturizing our natural kinky or curly hair of any type is most times difficult for many African/black women. However according to Simone Digital, you can use three easy steps. 1. UNDERSTAND HOW MOISTURE WORKS Water is what moisturizes hair, but water alone does not work very well. Without going into a scientific breakdown that will bore you and complex to understand, just know that’s simply because of evaporation. Water is the supreme moisturizer, but alone it’s just not as effective. ...

This is not a typical blog post, it's more like a "question post". Protective styling is good, if done right it can help hair growth. What this post is about is the cultural implications. The natural hair movement is beyond quitting the creamy crack. It is also a cultural movement for black/African people. That is where my question comes in. Is it okay to use straight weaves or any "white hairstyle" or "white girl hair" for protective styling?

Hot oil treatment. I had a goal. In 6 weeks I wanted my hair longer. I know I treated the hair horribly in the past and it really stunted the growth….but seriously does that mean I should pay for that forever? I decided to the hot oil treatment. For 6 straight weeks. I'm in week 3 now and the result is incredible. My hair is longer, fuller, breaks less, softer, looks healthier, my front edges are growing and my hair in general has more shine. I just cannot keep this secret to myself so I ...

Hey guys, for those of us who have little problems styling our natural hair. Just get a seat, a mirror and styling tools to get this party started. So my fabulous friend Zodidi created this awesome look starting with moisturising her hair the night before using water, oils and shea butter. Then she brushed her hair up the next morning and tied the woven band you see around it - it took half a pack of marley braids to weave that. She also placed a satin scarf around the edges for a whi...

Hello! My hair is 4b/4c, past my shoulders and quite full. Although I love my hair, I'm a lazy Natural. And so many things take up my time I can't afford to worship my hair :blush: Before I found an easy method to moisturise, I would sometimes let my hair suffer for days. Because of the very unpleasant results, I had to buckle up. This is my shortcut. When I haven't got enough time to spray water into my hair almost strand by strand, I part my hair into four parts, fill my hands with wate...

Hi Everyone! Hearing a snap, crackle, or pop while brushing or combing your hair is never a good sign. While losing the customary 100 strands per day is considered normal, breakage is a problem that's easily avoided. Whether it's due to a too-tight ponytail, bleach overkill, or even your diet, find out your personal culprit (and solution) for breakage as you read on. 1. You're a Hair Puller: Tugging on your hair can cause stress and eventually breakage. So if you have a tendency to twirl...

Good day lovelies. Most people dread wash days because of shrinkage, detangling, deep conditioning and all other things that comes with washing natural hair. However you can make it as pleasant as possible. I don't pre-poo because I like the my hair thoroughly cleansed. I go straight to washing with melted black soap. I section into four, wash it section by rubbing my scalp and running my hands through my hair like I'm finger combing. With my current hair length (back length when stretch...
