Having very thick, very dense hair is both a blessing and a curse. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my hair. It’s coily, kinky, thick, huge, and all mine. Over the years, I have been on a constant hunt for the perfect conditioner and deep conditioner but I cannot seem to find one that fit all of the criteria. Because my hair is so thick and dense, I’m starting to feel like the perfect conditioner (in one bottle) doesn’t exist. I refuse to lose faith so I need you help with suggestions. Here are some of the things I look for in a good deep conditioner and rinse-out conditioner.
Back at is again with another video clip from an awesome event I attended. Bianca and Samantha of Natural Power of Her have been putting on events in the Richmond, VA area for about a year now and I’ve been lucky enough to attend two of them. Both videos are up on my channel but this one is a recap of the 2nd Annual Naturals Got Soul feat. Richmond artist Bri Luv.
Man, it’s already April! I’m sure that’s what we are all thinking and I can’t even blame you. The year is literally flying by and what makes it worse is the mild winter we had. You’re probably thinking, “what does a mild winter have to do with anything”, right? Well, I legit feel like the change of season was so subtle that we never really got out of one and went into another. All winter long there were 60+ degree Fahrenheit weather days, which made it feel like fall was still lingering and spring was around the corner. There was no miserably cold weather to make us wish the months would go faster because it’s been overarchingly warm since last April.
Recently I came across this article and clicked on it hoping to learn some hair tips and tricks. I had legit hope for this article only to find that 70% of the “tips” from professional hairstylists were actually pretty… unhelpful. So much so that I feel like I have to “respond” in my own post.
Here are a few things that I want professional hairstylists to know.
For those who are unaware, my hair is natural and in order to trim it, it has to be as stretched as possible. In order to stretch my hair, it heat has to be applied to it (blow-dry or flat iron). Because I am afraid of heat damage, I opt for blow drying because to gets my hair stretched enough for my stylist to find and clip dead ends. Every time I go in for a trim, which is about 2-3 times a year, I always get excited about the length of my afro, so I wear it that way for a day or two after. I am proud of my hair. I love my hair. The only reason I don’t wear an afro everyday is because it causes split ends and I want to retain as much length as possible.
