Do you know your hair's porosity level?

Hey everyone! We put so much emphasis on deep conditions, co washes etc but we must FIRST start with knowing our porosity in order for any product or moisture to penetrate our strands. First let's start with what it is. Porosity is your hairs ability or inability to absorb & retain moisture. I have some low porosity & some normal porosity hair on my head. Do you know yours?

I'm just about one year 5 months since my transition and I've seen no increase in length! My sister went natural a few months before me and her hair has grown tremendously. I need help. I'm tired of sporting a short awkward looking fro. Plus there aren't many styles that my hair will do, because of it's texture. It has a mind of it's own.

I may have it either evened out or…

Making a Statement

I have been natural for well over 16 years. Way before this beautiful movement we are experiencing and way before the great tips that are flooding the web. I suffered weird looks and rude comments but I always felt safe and confident in my natural self! It has taken me years to discover how the different facets of me fit together but I have and now is the perfect time. Everyday I strive to empower and encourage women to be their best selves. I connect with them through my art, my business…

Do you know that there are 4 types of natural hair? Yes, getting back to the root of your texture. I do believe we all are beautiful kinky curly hair B.B.W.'s but what I love about this chart is I can determine the type of curls we have, then being a hair stylist that specializes in natural hair I personal find it helpful to treat each B.B.W. differently. As well as knowing you ethnicity and ancestors. Let's get to it...When you shampoo or wet your hair what how's does perform?-4a Spirals-4b…
