Going Natural?

0 Comments

Making the transition from straight to natural hair can be difficult, whether your hair be loose curls or tight kinks. It can be as challenging for someone who has blown out their hair straight their whole lives as for someone who has chemically relaxed their hair since they were a child. It is about learning to accept the texture with which you’ve been born rather than trying to mold it into something else.

Transitioning to natural hair is a process of growing out your natural texture before cutting off the processed or damaged ends. Once you start to grow out your natural texture, you will have to re-learn how to care for your new hair. Whether you’re looking to transition or big chop, every product that you put on your hair should be filled with moisture. Start by using moisturizing cleansers, conditioners, deep conditioners and oils to minimize hair breakage and keep both hair textures healthy.

Going natural is one of the greatest decisions a person can make. Women all over the world are in pursuit of healthy, beautiful, and stylish hair and transitioning to grow natural hair can be an exciting experience. Remember to:

  • Figure out why you are transitioning — dye damage, heat styling damage, etc. — and don’t let yourself forget it!
  • Focus on the positive aspects of transitioning: saving money, less hassle, less upkeep!
  • Trek the road with a friend. When two people conquer their fears together, nothing can stand in their way!

How Does He Feel About Your Natural Hair?

0 Comments

Looking good is high on a woman’s priority list, we all strive to look our best whether single or in a relationship. Some men are fascinated, awe struck and even in love with the natural look. Does your man love your natural hair?

After we BC (big chop), or transition to natural hair we can feel liberated, free and excited; but with that can also come feelings of insecurity and discomfort, especially when it comes to the opinions of our significant others. We can’t pretend for the sake of being “PC” that there aren’t men who won’t be into your natural hair. There is a chunk of the population who prefer (for various, complicated and lengthy reasons – please feel free to discuss in the comments) for a black woman’s hair to be straight. Some continue to hold tight to the notion that ‘good hair’ is flat, long and straight.

It’s hard enough trying to find “Mr. or Mrs. Right”, trying to convince someone to accept the hair on your head just isn’t a battle worth fighting. You want someone who appreciates all of you, inside and out – in your heart and via your follicles – and thankfully, many men do.

It their a lack of appreciation for natural hair amongst men, more specifically black me? Let’s discuss…

Going natural is one of the greatest decisions a person can make.  Women all over the world are in pursuit of healthy, beautiful, and stylish hair and transitioning to grow natural hair can be an exciting experience.  Your hair is an extension of your body and needs as much care as any other part does.  By having a natural hair care regimen, you can meet all your hairs’ needs.  We have designed a hair care solution for coiled, curly, kinky, or wavy hair that are transitioning to natural hair.

The Natural & Transitioning Hair Care Regimen includes:

  • Hydrating Invigorating Shampoo
  • Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner
  • Revitalizing Leave-in Conditioner
  • Curl Defining Cream
  • Natural Twist Out Foam
  • Nourish & Shine

This regimen is only available on our website and retails for $82 when you buy each product separately.  You can save $13 and begin your healthy transition to hair that is stunning and full of life.  Click Here to buy the Natural & Transitioning Hair Care Regimen.

The Hydrating Invigorating Shampoo gently cleanses your hair and scalp while adding extra moisture.  Chemically treated hair dries out quickly and can lead to further damage.  By applying this sulfate free shampoo, you can re-activate those humectants to help hold moisture while adding a hint of peppermint to wake up your scalp.  Follow this with Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner to strengthen, detangle, and smooth your hair.

Apply our Natural Twist Out Foam to define curls and can be used for lock styling.  This product can be used daily and dries clean without any residue.  No matter your style, the twist out foam can be used for all kinds of natural hair styling.  To add incredible shine and strength, use our award-winning curl defining cream.  This hair care product is composed of natural ingredients including shea butter, avocado, and jojoba oil.  It will elongate tight curls and help to define looser curls without leaving any residue.

To protect and refresh your hair, mist Revitalizing Leave-in Conditioner.  This product works as a protective barrier against further hair damage.  It will help reduce the temperature when blow-drying or flat-ironing and works as a sun screen too.  For the final touch, apply a pea size amount of Nourish & Shine to seal in moisture and add great shine.

Transitioning to natural hair can be done with minimal breakage if you have the necessary hair care products and understand how to care for it.  Our natural & transitioning hair care regimen is made from all natural ingredients and is healthy for both relaxed and natural hair textures.  We are dedicated to providing exceptional hair care products, as well as being your go-to source for hair care questions and helpful tips.

Natural Hair Barbie for Christmas?

For Christmas, a natural hair group in Georgia will give out 40 Barbie dolls with afro textured hair to little girls in the community.

One of the group members discovered an online demo on how to develop natural looking hair for dolls with items like pipe cleaners and boiling water. “We wanted to show the girls that basically, it’s okay the way God made you,” says a member.

Would you give the special little girl in your life a Barbie with natural hair?
