How to Build Your Natural Hair Routine while Transitioning

When I began transitioning in 2013, I had no idea that a routine was necessary or what a routine consisted of. In the process of learning what your hair likes or does not like is truly a personal preference. You have to pay attention to how your hair reacts and feels to certain products and styles.

A hair routine consists of what products you use, how often you moisturize your hair, how often you clean your hair and…

Coconut Oil and dry hair

Coconut oil is a versatile oil that can be used for the hair, scalp and body. It has been used for years as a natural hair conditioner with great results. Our hair is made up of a protein called Keratin, when our hair is damaged it normally experiences a loss of protein which can lead to split ends and breakage. Coconut oil is known to have an affinity for the protein within our hair. The oil penetrates the strands and…

Short hairstyles ideas?

So I just started going natural officially in august. I was transitioning during the summer but decided to just cut off the whole inch and a half of my relaxed ends off all at once.

My hair type is around a 4b/4c but I need help with finding a good short hairstyle because I also have a widow's peak. (My hairline is sorta M shaped) anyone have any ideas for any…

Arctic Air Not Good For My Hair

So winter seems to show up early this year and I was told that this winter was not going to be too nice to us. If you live up north like I do you know what I'm talking about.

Kinky Curly Curling Custard

Contrary to popular belief, this gel can work on type 4 hair. I use it the Kinky Curly Knot Today (KCKT)as a leave-in conditioner on fresh out of the shower, dripping wet hair and immediately detangle and then work the Curling Custard through my hair with my fingers. I rake the product through my hair and get amazing curl definition when it dries (which takes about a day).

Conserving this wash-n-go style reguires me to spay my hair (when it's finally dry) and sectioning my hair into…
