Let me help make things easy for you… I have made a super gift list that encompasses any and every gift your curl friend, or you, could ever possibly want. From hair...

Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Daily Damage Repair Collection Review

PSA: This review is not sponsored! I spent my own money on these products to give you an honest review because I love natural hair and I’m a product junkie who’s always on the search for the perfect hair products. I recently purchased the Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Collection because I’m always looking for products that help repair and protect damaged hair. I was mainly attracted to the name: Almond Milk. I know of the health benefits of almond milk...

Natural Hairstyles | How to Make Bantu Knots Look Cute & Wearable

Bantu knots are a true catch 22. The end result – a bantu knot out – is usually BOMB, but dealing with the prerequisite can be problematic. Because they tend to take forever and a day to dry if you style on wet hair, wearing the knots outside the house is a necessary evil for a busy lifestyle. To a lot of naturals, wearing bantu knots outside is equivalent to wearing rollers outside the house. You’re not going to wear rollers in your head...

#HOTD | Front Cornrows & Twistout

I haven’t done this hairstyle since I was in middle school, but I think I’ve fallen back in love with it! On my never-ending quest for new hairstyles to try, I decided to go waaaaaay back. I was initially inspired by a photo I came across on Instagram (which I cannot find now, when I need it…). It was a picture of an afro with a side part, and, on the smaller side of the part, it was decorated with...

Natural Hair Advice | What to Expect with Longer Natural Hair

One wash day, almost a month ago now, I looked into the mirror and I didn't recognize myself. My hair was different. I didn't know why, but I did know nothing was wrong with it. I was taking my hair vitamins and giving it the ultimate TLC, so I was sure I wasn't doing anything to cause drastic damage to my hair. It was actually the opposite. I was having a hair epiphany. My hair had entered a new phase of natural hair. It’s almost like my hair had evolved.

6 Reasons My Hair is Growing SUPER FAST!!

n the past couple of months, my hair has really seen some MAJOR growth! Lately, it has been taking forever to dry my hair, and I just couldn't figure out why. My regimen hadn't really changed much, so I knew that wasn't the cause. It’s still hot out here in Louisiana, so it has nothing to do with the weather. Then, I finally realized that because my hair had grown so much, and become so thick, it required extra drying time (almost twice as much as it used to!). Today, my hair is a comfortable APL (arm pit length; I say comfortable because I dont have to pull it till my head hurts or the hair is completely taught to reach it. I just gently pull and it stretches there with little effort). It feels like just yesterday I was an inch or two away from reaching this goal. I took some time to reflect on the things that I was doing differently to possibly cause this and I came up with this hopefully helpful list.

Natural-Looking Curls with Curlformers!

   Yesterday was my second time rocking a Curlformer set. The results were very similar to my first use. To shorten drying time, I used lighter products, but I also added a light gel on top of my styler for better hold results. When you first take off the rollers, the curls are very uniform, and, in my opinion and depending on how large your sections are, they can be worn without/ with minimal separation. However, I am obsessed with...
