Natural Hair vs Relationships...do you think this video is funny or offensive?

Started by Reila Ortiz in Natural Hair Support Mar 27. 0 Replies

I can see how someone would be offended by this video. I personally don't find it funny like I think it was meant to be, I find it ignorant. It's making fun of something that a lot of black girls struggle with. With that being said, this could have been a lot "funnier" (if you want to call his sad attempts at comedy funny) if he hadn't put so much negative connotation about ethnicity on it. The way he put this together it was like telling someone "I don't like natural natural" was the same as…Continue

Co-washing everyday

Started by KC in Questions??!?!?!?!? Mar 25. 0 Replies

For the past three months I have been co-washing everyday. I am very active and sweat a lot in my head everyday. I have tried to cut back on the co-washing before but when I do my hair feels really dry and my scalp is sooo itchy! I have been 100% natural for three months so my hair isn't very long (comes to the bridge of my nose in the front). I co-wash my hair in the morning and detangle with a wide tooth comb while I'm in the shower. Then I will use a leave in conditioner and a light…Continue

Regimental Question| What Are The 3 Products You Cannot/Will Not Live Without ?

Posted by Sunshine Abuwi on May 20, 2011 at 11:00am 151 Comments



Hey NatSun! In an effort to help all the new naturals and soon to be natural's I want to compile a list of prducts us natural's really like and use. So here is the question:

Let's say you were going on a two week vacation, and when you get there, you will not be able to buy hair products. Your hair cannot be in a protective style, where your hair is safely tucked away, but your beautiful hair is going to be free. You can only take 3 products (your brush, comb and bobby pins are already…

Regimental Friday Question| Do You Use Grease on Your Natural Hair? or Find "Old School Methods" To Be a Natural Hair No-No? Weigh in!

Posted by Sunshine Abuwi on November 18, 2011 at 10:00am 93 Comments



Grease and other petroleum-based products have gotten a bad reputation in the natural hair world. Many members of kinky curly land have turned their noses up at these products and have turned their backs on the “old school methods” of caring for our hair, in exchange for "all natural", or "all organic", products.

 

While many naturals are getting great results from their "new methods" of caring for their hair, I cannot help but wonder if the old school methods are being unfairly treated. For many of us, our hair was its longest, thickest and healthiest in our youth. When our mom or grandmother was in charge of our hair maintenance. Most likely, mom wasn't using Shea Butter, or…

Update of my "Natural"

Posted by Calandra NatuReal Cooper on March 18, 2014 at 10:01pm 3 Comments

Hope all have been well. I haven't popped in for some time. Here's an update. I kept cutting and re-cutting my hair off. Why? Because I loved the no hair look. But since, Nov. 2013 I've stopped cutting--still natural though.…

“Some of You Are Jealous of the Very People Who Should Give You Courage!”

Posted by Sunshine Abuwi on March 16, 2014 at 6:21pm 2 Comments

 “Some of you are jealous of the very people who should give you courage!” said my Pastor during a recent Wednesday evening, Bible study. It wasn’t even his main point, but the words jumped out at me. At that very moment I thought about the time I was jealous of a fellow natural hair vlogger. I remember struggling intensely with my jealousy of her. Whenever I looked at her videos I only saw (what I interpreted to be) smooth sailing.

 

“I bet she has a much better support system than…

Information Overload: The Silicone Nightmare

Posted by KC on January 17, 2014 at 1:48am 1 Comment

Okay guys I am so confused. So up until recently, I have been avoiding all silicones because I read a bunch of stuff about how they are terrible for your hair. But I found that just co-washing my hair with my As I Am cowash left my hair feeling kinda dry. So I picked up some Aussie Moist conditioner and my hair felt and looked soooooo much better. The Aussie Moist conditioner has a water soluble silicone in it so I figured it wasn't tooo bad. Anyway, one of my friends was telling me how much she loves using the Cantu Leave in Repair Cream. I bought some and have still yet to try it because it has dimethicone in it, which is not a water soluble silicone.

I looked on youtube and I got a lot of mixed reviews. Some people hated it. Some people absolutely loved it. Im so confused. Are silicones really that bad? So much information, so many varied answers. HEEELLLPP.

It’s a natural preference

3 Quick Tips For New Naturals & Soon To Be Naturals

Posted by Sunshine Abuwi on December 5, 2013 at 1:48pm 0 Comments

1. Go to a professional.

Whenever it is possible, seek out a highly recommended, licensed,  barber or stylist to cut your hair. Whether it's a big chop, or you're getting your hair cut into a shape, do not let your friend, boyfriend or cousin, who just happens to have  a pair of clippers, cut your hair. Going natural already requires confidence and you don't need to jeopardize your confidence by getting a bad hair cut.

If you are new to barbers or short hair styles, let…

Can I get split ends if I don't use heat? Should I be clipping my ends regularly?

Ok, so I'm bored and watching youtube videos when I came across a few videos where naturals (w/ twa's) were clipping their ends.  It never occurred to me to do so. I want to make sure I'm doing everything right...like most of us are. What I want to…See More
