If you are new to growing out your natural hair, especially if you have been regularly using chemical relaxers for a long time can present many challenges. If you have relaxed your hair for a very long time, your hair and scalp has adjusted to the chemicals and stopping them does cause some discomfort as it tries to re-balance.

Dry Hair? Causes & Solutions

By far, the most common problem naturals are faced with is dry hair. I don’t mean “not wet” dry hair. I mean dry like the Sahara dry. If you are having this problem, there is one thing you must do before anything else.

Chemicals in Natural Products

Going natural after years of relaxing your hair can be a difficult time. Not only are you confronted with a brand new texture of hair you are not used to working with, but you are also entering a brand new world of hair care products, many stating right there on the label “FOR NATURAL HAIR”. However, I have found many of these “natural hair” products are not only no good for natural hair, but are downright dangerous for it. Just because it says “natural” does not mean it is natural, or the has a good combination natural ingredients, or it is good for your hair at all.

Feed Your Body. Feed Your Hair.

The most important thing I am going to say to you is this, so let me get it over with now. A healthy body grows healthy hair.

It wasn't long ago that wearing natural hair other than in a short afro, was prohibited in the US military. I would receive email after email from natural sisters in the service, complaining about how they were forced to either straighten or cut their hair in order to conform with strict guidelines on hair grooming policies.

Fearing the 'Fro

DeeAfter years of using chemical relaxers, you can really enjoy parts of the process of going natural. No more head slapping, no more burning scalp, no more toxic smell. After making that decision and beginning the process, you get excited and apprehensive as you watch your new, natural hair growing in.

A PLACE FOR US

Is the natural hair movement the exclusive domain of Black women? In my opinion, yes. At least it is on this website.

Caring for Locs - Avoiding Buildup

Avoiding buildup inside locs is probably the the most imporant thing you can do to successfully wear locs for many years. Buildup that lot of people are concerned about and rightfully so. It can cause mould a bad smell and in the worst cases can cause your locs to disintegrate through bacterial growth.

Natural Hair Care: ACV Rinse

This is my recipe for a simple Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Balancer and Conditioner. Great for locs, extensions and loose natural hair. Even better for your scalp!

DeecoilyIt’s inevitable. The last frontier of a head of healthy, natural hair – the process of going grey.  We all have to face it. It will happen. All of us who are heading for a “mature” age, and even some of our younger women who have that early-graying gene, or the stress-caused change have to face it, though earlier than the rest of us.
