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

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.

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.

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…

4 Easy Steps to Seal Moisture in Your Natural Hair

Posted by Sunshine Abuwi on January 3, 2014 at 3:03pm 2 Comments

Natural hair care involves moisturizing your hair with water and then using styling products to help retain that moisture during the day. I’ve been natural five years, and the following is how I maintain my moisture level, sheen and softness.



4 Easy Steps to Seal Moisture in Your Natural Hair



1. Start with water! Always begin your hair care routine by co-washing your hair (washing with conditioner instead of shampoo), washing your hair, or by simply saturating your hair with water via spray bottle. Water is the only substance that can actually moisturize hair and therefore it’s your hairs lifeline! Water is no longer the enemy but now the…
