Re: Need Help:My hair is always dry:(

Hello! I understand you want to achieve a certain look with braid and twist out styles by using heat, but there has to be some compromise if hydration is what you want to achieve. Try to use heat less, and maybe wash your hair only once or twice a month, extending the life of any heat styles you wea...

Re: Sisterlocks

Here are some photos. I tried to get a range in terms of where the people were in their journey: one with “mature” locks (bottom), one who had them freshly established for the first time (top), and one in between (middle). Sisterlocks can grow long and healthy (with proper care, of course) and can b...

Re: No Comb or Brush Hair Styling

I completely understand how you feel, amanah96. I’ve not used combs and brushes for years, and I find using my fingers so much easier, gentler, and efficient. While detangling is a struggle for most naturals, I find it quick and easy, even though my hair texture is tight and kinky. I actually find t...

HENNA

Anyone here with dark hair use henna before? This is for color purposes - not henna mixed with indigo or a henna gloss....henna. What was your process for mixing/applying the henna (including any extra ingredients you may have added). How did your color come out? How did your hair feel/how does it r...

Re: Why Did You Decide To Go Natural?

I went natural because I wanted to embrace what God gifted me. Honestly, for the short time I was relaxed, I wasn't satisfied. It didn't feel like me. Straight hair was so foreign. And the health, beauty, strength, and (in some ways) convenience that can with natural hair sold me. Natural hair was a...

Re: 1 year no heat challenge

I'd like to join this also after I get a blow out this month (I could use a trim). I agree that the no heat regime can be smooth and easy, as the last time my hair was blown out was early January last year. I feel that especially while I was transitioning, because then my braid outs were so stretche...

Re: definition of natural hair

I feel "natural" is hair that has its curl pattern unaltered. I personally do not color my hair because it requires too much maintenance like most UNnatural procedures. I have a patch of gray at the temples and love it. But when it goes gray all over and no roots to worry about I would welcome a pl...
