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…

Naturals with a bob cut.

Hey everyone!  I've been sporting my natural look for about 3 years now and I decided that I wanted to do something different with my hair. Almost 3 weeks go, I got my hair cut into a bob with a deep, side part and dyed it a deep maroon color. Since I love to switch up my hairstyles, I was wondering if anyone could help me determine what natural styles would look best with my bob haircut.  Thanks so much for your help!

Going natural has been life changing....

Hi!!!!! For any of you still just considering this journey, I say, consider no more! Going natural was just part one to a change in how I perceived my own life, society, and life in general. I started to question why it is that weaves tend to be more socially acceptable than the kinky hair I was born with. I met this beautiful woman in the store with long, kinky-curly type hair, and it was hidden behind a bonnet but LADIES. I peeped and I had to tell her how beautiful her and her hair was! It…

A few months in , my bush was not as curly as it usually is so my ignorant self out a texturized in my hair but because my hair was…

Defined Curl Method

You guys may be wondering how to get a defined curl pattern. Well I have 3c/4a hair and this is what works for me. I wash my hair then add coconut oil and leave-in conditioner right after. While its damp I section it off into about 4-6 sections. I then grab a little piece from one of the sections and start to two strand twist that part. I move on and grab another small piece and twist again. The smaller the twist the more defined the curl will be. After that I add coconut oil to the ends and…

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…
