    How To Grow Natural Hair

    It has taken me time, but I finally know how to grow natural hair. I big chopped and started growing my natural hair 8 years ago (wow time flies!). At regular intervals I take a step back to see if my type 4B-4C hair is growing. Monitoring your natural hair growth is helpful in stopping a hair issue or detecting a health condition. Not long ago, I believed that I was taking great care of my hair. One day, I caught up with a friend, who in two years went from a small afro to shoulder length hair! I had went natural before her, and my hair barely reached my…

    Natural Hair Impostors. Are you one?

    Natural Hair impostors are among us. Lately I’ve been hearing discussions about what makes someone “natural” in how they wear their natural hair. By the most basic definition, it means the hair is worn in its natural state without it being chemically altered. The “Natural Hair” term is most often used to describe men and women of color who wear their hair in its natural curl pattern that is coily, kinky, wavy, or curly. And yes, natural hair that is colored counts as long as its curl pattern isn’t chemically straightened. We always focus on that argument but bypass a small group of women who participate in the community knowing…

    4B Hair Wash-n-Go, The Hair Rules Salon Method

    When I first went natural a few years ago, I was introduced to the Wash-And-Go world by way of the “Dickey Method” at Hair Rules salon in Manhattan. First, the stylist trimmed my hair and shampooed it with a gentle cleanser. The stylist applied the “curly whip” in sections while my hair was saturated. The product was smoothed through my wet hair, allowing it to clump and elogate my curls. I was then instructed to shake out my curls while my head was upside down. I thought it was weird but it worked like magic to give curl separation and volume. After that I sat under a hooded dryer, then…

    RevAir Review on Kinky 4b Hair, The Worlds First Reverse Air Dryer

    Crochet Weave, Everything You Need To Consider

    I never expected my first crochet weave moment to come. Crochet weaves had always been something I was hesitant to try for several reasons (I will get to that shortly). It’s now been a week of me and this glorious head of hair that ain’t mines and i’m loving it. I took the leap and got a crochet weave because I have several events and weddings to attend, in addition I will be going on a two week cruise vacation. Having natural hair is a blessing because it is versatile as hell, but my current hair style and state calls for a protective style. I have kinky curly type 4b…
