Just the other day, I was surfing on LinkedIn - the popular jobs and career network, when I came across a shared post unlike anything I've ever seen on that platform. One of my connections had shared a post by one of hers announcing that she had just published a children's book centered on Natural African Hair. Her primary aim with this book is to boost self acceptance and self esteem in kids who've been blessed with Afro hair. As you can imagine, I was immediately excited; but I wasn't the only...

Dear All, In my last post I talked about Guava Leaves as a natural remedy for our hair. Well I have used it (on Saturday) in my last wash routine and I have to say that it was a wonderful experience.

And i saw my baby hair laying down when I run my hand through (while it was still wet in the Guava leave...

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.

Happy new year everyone! This is my first blog post of the year. Let's do this Palm kernel oil has been in my home for as long as I can remember. As a little girl, my paternal grandmother would send it to us to use as body cream. She sent the one that had stick like herbs in it and I was cool with them until I started watching nollywood, and I wanted nothing to do with a "babalawo’s cream". Although now I know it’s a very great oil and I’m going to be sharing some of its wonders. ...

So for the first time in my life, I made my hair with Brazilian wool. I made faux locs. It looked nice and was easy to style and I could style it in different ways. However it didn't protect my hair and ruined some of my clothes. It was sticking to my clothes and pulling out the threads. When I loosened it, it hadn't protect my hair like I thought it would. Despite the fact I tried moisturising my hair throughout the time I had it on. It was not entirely bad though. Maybe my expectat...

I learned these in the 12th month of my 1 yr and 6 months (after my big chop) natural hair journey. And it wasn't until my 11th month that I got to know I had low porosity hair. What is porosity in hair? Porosity is your hair's ability to absorb moisture. Low porosity hair is usually considered healthy, and is often shiny. This type of hair repels moisture when you try to wet it. Low porosity hair is also prone to build up from protein rich deep conditioning products which can leave it feeling ...

Good Afternoon Fam! Your hair loss can be significant, or minor, but no matter the severity, having to deal with it can be stressful and expensive.

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...
