After making that decision and beginning the process, you get excited and apprehensive as you watch your new, natural hair growing in.

Natural Hair & Children - Positivity!

We are always hearing about how the media, friends and colleagues change the way we see ourselves and determine our beauty standard whether it is around our natural curly, kinky hair or dark skin. Self-esteem building begins at an early age. If a parent instills in their child a solid foundation of self-worth through love and guidance from an early age, about all parts of themselves, then neither the media nor friends or colleagues will be able to destroy it.

Kinky Twist Extension No Braid Method

I have never liked the look of braids at the base of kinky twist extensions. In fact that is one of the reasons why I have not had kinky twist extensions put in - to me it just looks wrong. I have tried several alternative methods of putting Marley twists in and this is the only method that did not result in the extensions either falling out or getting tangled or knotted at the base.

    Natural Hair's Worst Enemies

    It’s not what you think. It’s not White people. And it’s not Black people either. I’m not going to talk about direct heat because you already know the dangers of that. This blog is not that deep. I’m talking about every day unsuspecting things I have encountered around me that you need to know are not friends of your natural hair.

  • Co-washing? My take.
    Co-washing? My take.

    Co-washing. No Poo. No Shampoo Method. It comes as many names but basically means washing your hair with conditioner instead of shampoo (with or without adding things like baking soda to the mix). I have used it on and off over the years and provide a mixed review on my results.
