Confessions of a Natural Hair Enthusiast

What are your reasons for going natural? I wear my hair natural for several reasons. The biggest being that I want to “be true to myself”. We all say that but what does it really mean? It means completely embracing who I am in every way possible. I don’t have to live up to societies standards of beauty when I can embrace myself. I can’t do that if I’m chemically changing the molecular structure of any part of my body, including my hair with a…

Third Day Braidout on 3C Natural Hair

​My hair is still loving these Camille Rose Naturals haircare products. It’s been my main moisturizer and styler for the last two weeks. I shared my thoughts and routine in my last post. Check it out if you have time. I had a braidout that gave me new life. I pineappled it Monday night and slept with my bonnet.

Paradise On Earth – Natural Hair Product Review

Product Review – Paradise On Earth Organic Hair Repair Mask and 100% Organic Hair Growth Oil. I purchased these product online and am completing this review voluntarily. I wet my hair with warm water and sectioned it into three large parts. I divided each one into even smaller sections, applied the mask to every strand of hair, and then put my plastic bonnet on. I chilled for 15 minutes without heat then sat under the dryer for 15 minutes. I rinsed and then co-washed my…

My hair regimen

It has literally taken five years for me to figure out how to make my curls pop and retain moisture. The hardest part is figuring out what products my hair likes and what it doesn’t. First, I tried to figure out my hair type. I’m a 4b,  4c but what does that mean? It wasn’t helpful. Next I read about the LOC method. Liquid, oil, and creamy usually left me with creamy flakes. My hair doesn’t like to be styled with creams. I can moisturize…
