Share Now that I am relaxed again, it’s critical for me to have something that’s not only gentle but that actually cleans my hair without buildup. I started using “That’s So Natural” Products a little after Christmas 2013. These products are free of parabens, mineral oils, and contain natural ingredients. Normally, I am not so “paraben” or “sulfate” aware or weary, but I am trying to become more aware of what I put in my body as well as topically. My goal this year...

Share Are sew-in weaves bad for your hair? No, not ALL sew in weaves are bad; the main thing you have to remember when wearing a weave is to TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN HAIR!!! Sew in weaves won’t give you freedom from your own hair, but if anything it kind of gives you more reasons to pay attention to your hair. Sew in, just like any other weave, has its ups and downs. They can protect your hair but if not “installed” correctly it can damage or break your hair. If you’re trying to grow your hair out it’s recommended that you install...

Share Natural hair dolls are the hottest thing this year  and have been for a few years.  The problem is that everything dealing with natural hair is booming, and that makes the hunt for these little prettys that much harder. So here we are with Christmas Day only a few weeks away,  and everyone is ready to grab up one or two of the dolls.  You have websites like Natural Girls United and  Ethidolls that offer the dolls right at the click of a mouse. I will do my best to point out  some of the hottest, cutest, and most fabulous...

Share When your hairline has deserted you, you may find yourself experiencing some abandonment issues and becoming very annoyed and discouraged with  your hair’s appearance. Understandably so. Many times women of color discover that the wearing of weaves and braids and or chemical damage has caused their hairline to vanish altogether. Not a good look. We’ve all seen the celebrity pics of Naomi Campbell and her counterparts that make you cringe at the sight of their horrendous botched up hairlines. We all know of or have...

Share The question that I’ve heard asked all too many times is does a sew- in weave actually grow your hair? African American women as well as women of different ethnic groups have embraced weaves using the sew- in method now more than ever. The truth of the matter is many women that opt for a sew-in weave wear them for the purposes of growing their own hair, as well as hiding it and protecting it. I would fall into this category of women that do just that. Many people have the misconception that women that wear weaves, especially...

Share Alopecia Treatments That Work For African American Hair Loss Alopecia is a medical problem that is commonly experienced by majority of individuals. This medical term simply means hair loss, and any person will likely encounter this condition either in its mild, temporary, or more severe forms. According to experts, African-American men and women are more susceptible to Alopecia because of the genetic nature of their hair which is thick, dry, and brittle. All other known causes of hair loss may also be observed with African-American...

Share It seems that the rate of African American ladies transforming to natural took everyone by storm. The chemical free awakening is continuing to take it’s toll on ladies all across the nation, and in sweeping numbers. So why the sudden natural movement?  There is no one answer for this question, as I cannot provide one answer for the volumes of African American ladies who have made this choice.  Many ladies have decided to cut their ties with relaxers and weaves and let their God- given tresses flow for various reasons.  Becoming...

Share Stretching out your twist outs! If you are like me and most women with hair, you would like to take full advantage of any style by maximizing its potential. For naturals, one of the primary concerns is shrinkage, which causes hairstyles like the twist outs or braid outs to look significantly shorter than they actually are. Being newly natural, I have been doing a lot of experimenting with the way that I can maximize my hair’s length. I have gotten over the fact that I am now sporting shorter hair, however that does not mean...

Share Don’t Sweat it, Just Do It! Working out and your natural/transitioning hair! Not only do we as women of color have to be concerned about the appearance of our locks when we work out and sweat away those pounds, but we also have to fear the drying effects of sweat on the scalp. Most black women don’t want to go the route of washing their hair every day…not only can that be time consuming, but extremely drying. So what do we do? Do we fall into that stereotype that labels us as overweight and lazy, due to the fact that we...
