The Chunky Fro

The words “clumpy” and “chunky” brings some not-so-pretty things to mind, except in the world of natural hair, where the words are viewed as a neat thing our natural hair does. I have heard the terms “chunky puff”, “chunky ‘fro” and “chunky wash-and-go” used separately but all relating to the same general look.

Stop Touching My Hair!

Have you been accosted by strangers and friends reaching out to touch your natural tresses? Have you almost gotten whiplash from trying to avoid all the pokers, grabbers and feelers? Yeah, me too.

Mint Stinger Rinse

This NappturaliTEA will make your hair soft and is great for using before wet twisting your hair, especially if you are twisting specifically for a twistout or a chunky fro.

All About Comfrey

Comfrey is a wonderful plant! It has pride of place in my garden because it can be used for so many conditions. It is easy to process and a beautiful plant when in full bloom.
