Day 7: The hardest part of your journey
The hardest part of having natural hair was liking it. Don’t get me wrong, I love my hair! But sometimes, I would feel like I would get more “attention” if my hair was straight. Embracing my kinky curls and loving my texture is something I have to remind myself to do daily.

Day 6: The part of your hair journey you loved
I love being organic! I use yogurt to deep condition my hair and mud to cleanse it. I find it fascinating that foods like honey, molasses, and even cinnamon are healthy for my hair!

Day 5: Your dream hairstyle
I am dreaming about styling my hair into Havana Twists. Havana Twists are a gorgeous! The best part: they are a protective hairstyle! You can’t go wrong with a beautiful hairstyle that protects the hair too. (:
What’s your dream hairstyle?
Wigs or weaves? Which hairstyle will suit you best? I recently visited a massive beauty supply store and was amazed by the voluminous selection of wigs. Short bob cuts, long flowing tresses, tapioca browns, and charcoal black wigs greeted me, each with their own personality.
Whether you are transitioning to having natural hair or you just want a break from styling your natural hair, wigs can be a solution for you. And they work better than weaves. Here’s why.
With the warmer seasons on their way, panic about your curls can set in. “How will I keep my hair moisturized?” “How do I stop my hair from becoming dry?” “Help, my hair is parched!”
Every natural has asked similar questions or had concerns like the ones mentioned above. When it comes to the spring/summer heat waves, try following the advice below to protect your precious curls.
Natural hair is all the buzz… and just in time for spring too! (: In Indy, everyone is excited about the warm weather. I am seeing more and more naturals let their hair hang down.
Hello Curly Beauties! I've transitioned to 3B, 3C hair after my last relaxer nearly three years ago. My hair has grown so much, think Diana Ross big, and lately I've noticed a patch of dry hair in the middle of my scalp. It's brittle, dry, but when I wet the hair and place product, such as deep conditioner, it snaps back with a little fuzz. Could this be heat damage? I never use hot tools, just a roller set maybe twice a month. I use coconut oil and it gets softer but, what else? Thanks!
Hello sunshine! Frizzy or “fuzzy” hair can be caused by an assortment of things. It could mean that the middle portion of your hair has high porosity. Porosity has to do with the hairs ability to retain moisture by keeping the cuticles on your hair shaft closed. When hair cuticles stay open instead of laying flat against your shaft, moisture is released and the product is frizzy and dry hair strands. However, there are remedies! You took a great first step with using coconut oil to add and seal in moisture. I would also suggest trying an Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse. I usually perform my AVC Rinses with ½ of Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 cup of water.
