Gathering EPIC Posts

Hey all, I've got a new initiative happening to showcase posts that may have happened years ago or maybe recently, that are so good they deserve a special place. I have been looking through threads with the most pages and comments and have found some amazing advice that needs to be brought back out and preserved. You will find these posts on the fr
Build-up in locs is something all loc wearers will have to deal with eventually. Did you know that the products you use to remove build-up may make the problem worse? In this article we deal with breaking down the dos and don'ts of loc maintenance and build-up. It's information you need to know to get it out and keep it out. 3 Signs you have build-...
So good to see the Nappturality crew and DeeCoily still on the interwebs.:D I started loc'ing on July 9, 2005 and now am on my third iteration of locs. Used to go by the handle "TwistedXn," but no longer in the "Christian" part. It's a long, long story. Anyways, I'll be lurking to and fro and chiming in here and there. Nappy Trails! View on the For
This is an EPIC thread with almost 4000 replies where real women with natural hair tell you their mistakes and give you their best tips on what NOT to do. You can't get any better advice than this  https://www.nappturality.com/forums/threads/80061-The-what-Not-To-Do-Thread

When a self-proclaimed "influenster" who is barely older than my domain name, who still chemically relaxes her thinning hair, comes at me to critique me and my advice, trying to say she knows more than I do about natural hair because she is a "licensed cosmetologist" --- you know I am going to heat up off the back foot. It's a free society and I fu
Tyra Banks is one of those women whose looks are timeless. She changes up her hair, her makeup, her clothing style and every single time, she nails it. And we love it and we love her in all her reinventions. So when she came onto Instagram last week and we got to see her hair – her real hair – her natural color, texture and styled simply in a ...
When I first went natural, I was really on a tight budget. And I had no idea about styling natural hair let alone what products to use. There weren't any products for natural hair anyway because it was 2001 and no one had any products specifically formulated for my type of afro, kinky hair. So, what I did was started to make my own.

Hello, i was really excited to find this forum. I transitioned for 2 years after having my hair relaxed for many many years. My hairdresser cut off the last of my straightened hair in July. The 2 years were long and I wore buns or braids most of that time. Now that i only have natural hair, i have found some products that work for a wash and go. i
It seems to me that the essence of going natural is being transformed into not so much of a journey of self-discovery but a journey to see how many hair products one can use on their heads to make their natural hair into something more acceptable.
