It's been a long time I came on here..Hope everyone is doing great? For the past few months I have been quite busy so I haven't really been doing a lot to my hair... I have a thing for headwraps which is called DUKU in Ghana . There are many reasons to wear a headwrap. Here are a few of my personal reasons: ~ It protects my hair from the wind and rain ~ Helps to retain moisture ~ Serves as a protective style for my natural hair on days when I don't feel like touching my hair ~ And it's...

I bought some bentonite clay from @naturalhairavenue on IG and decided to try it out today and I was impressed. I've never seen my curls pop out like that. Jeezz😧 [img]https://myafrohub.com/PF.Base/file/attachment/2017/04/d3e016c0f69596c1645c1d3566dfe262_view.png[/img] 1. I mixed some bentonite clay with water and olive oil in a PLASTIC bowl (DO NOT USE A METAL DISH BECAUSE IT WILL REDUCE IT'S EFFECTIVENESS. USE GLASS OR PLASTIC). That quantity was small so I added more. You can always us...

Yeahh soo this is how far I've gone😄. I never thought my hair would grow this long, sooo fast. I am actually very surprised by how long my hair has grown. I was always doing protective styles (cornrows, because of school) and was taking them down every two weeks. I later on learnt about all the Protein treatments, hot-oil treatments, pre-poo, ACV rinse etc, and that's when I started doing them, my hair length increased and my love for natural hair began. I absolutely love natural hair😭😍. The v...

Hello Lovelies! As a child and teenager living in Nigeria, i was used to relaxing my hair. I never once thought about going natural and natural hair wasn't exactly the norm except you attend "Deeper Life Church". I decided to go natural after experiencing grave breakage from unhealthy hair care practice and relaxer addiction. My hair was breaking like no man's business. I would wash my hair and see clumps on the bathroom floor. Note that while i was relaxed, i wasn't taking care of my hair...

You know that moment and the feeling that comes with the fact that you are in the midst of fellow black beauties who are growing their hair and yours is a hairless scalp cez mum won't allow you grow your crown? It's a feeling of intense pain I tell you..... & that used to be my story. You know that thing they say about change, huh? Yeea, you guessed right. Change is constant. One day I got tired of other girls laughing at my "shine bright like a diamond". That was the day I started my hair j...

I am a lover of hair and keeping my hair tidy means a lot to me. I relaxed my hair after my Senior High School Education that is 2008. Whenever it was time for re-touching , huh! I'd just feel like crying because I would definitely get a deep cut no matter the relaxer creme I used. And my hair was not growing despite all the attention I gave it. I made up my mind to go the natural way but the obstacles were too much for me. Some of my friends told me stubborn hair makes natural ha...

" Length is not the ultimate goal of going natural, it's a healthy hair. When you run so quickly to get a long hair, you miss out on all the fun of being the proud owner of a teeny weeny afro (TWA)." — Ama Sabeng Poku Image: Frolicious.de The other day, I was randomly scrolling through the timeline here on myAfroHub, when I ran into Ama Sabeng Poku’s post. They are very simple words— “length is not the ulti...

This deep conditioner recipe is for growth, moisture and protein. Basically hair needs moisture and protein to survive. Genes, diet, weather are other factors but when it comes to hair care (hair treatment especially), we have to understand the delicate balance of moisture and protein. Too much or too little moisture is bad, so is too little or too much protein is bad for the hair. This deep conditioner recipe is something I came up with to tackle that, and I'm going to be listing their function...

My name is Stella Saba and I've been natural for almost two years now. I did not do the big chop. All I did was trim off the relaxed part; though I was scared because automatically my hair became an Afro; I was unable to get it into a pony tail like I used to; and then I did not even know my hair type. I was still a leaner. In fact, I did not even know how to twist my hair. My sister always had to do it for me. But as time went on I got to realize that: 1.) I have the 4c hair type - which ...
