Hair In the Winter

When first becoming natural during the summer i always wore my hair in braids and twist but in the winter wore it out. After time went on I started to realize that my hair would get dry and stiff when wearing it out in the winter. I found out that the wind and cold air often drys out the hair especially when you have natural oils in it, so I started to wear my hair in protective styles most of the time.

Getting the hang of things

Hello Queens!!!!    So I'm still getting use to my hair. But aren't we all (I'm not really a 4c, but were all a big loving natural family). I'm still getting the hang of twist outs and braid outs and those things of the sort. I can watch a good amount of YouTube tutorials, but almost the equivalent of not having a green thumb :/ any suggestions? I would love to be able to style my hair in way like "hey! I did that"

Oily Hair

Can someone help me? I washed my hair Sunday morning and I've only moisturizer my hair twice since then. But whenever I touch my hair, my hands usually get REALLY oily. Is this supposed to be a sign of moisture not getting into my hair and products just sitting on top of the strands?My hair type is 4c and I have low porosity hair for the most part.

Love your Natural

The first sight of natural hair can be a shocker to people because it may be new to them or they simply just may not understand it. Confidence in your natural hair goes a long way, because there's always an eye on you. Being natural may be new to your family and they may not except it at first or at all but that doesn't mean change it, if any thing it means embrace it more. Dreads, braids, curls, pressed hair they are all beautiful not…
