Seeking Unity in the Natural Hair Community

Being a blogger with kinkier hair has some disadvantages and advantages. When I first started to learn about my natural hair texture and was looking to research more about people whose hair had similar properties, I didn’t see any vloggers who had similar hair to mine on Youtube… or any social media outlet for that matter. I saw a lot of girls with beautiful waves and curls but not any who had kinks and coils. I felt a disconnect with the natural hair community and I wanted to change that. Feeling excluded from the social media influencer world full of Read More

For Our Head Wrap Lovers!

Head wraps or head ties originated in Sub-Saharan Africa and have survived, in multiple cultures, through colonial and post-colonial times. They go by different names in different cultures. For instance, in Nigeria, they’re commonly known as  ‘Gele.’ In Ghana and Malawi, a ‘Duku.’ Just like our numerous traditional hairstyles, head wraps are used to symbolize culture, social status, spirituality, marital status or even age. They come in different styles and are made with a wide range of colors and fabrics, each with their own significances. It is often said that a head wrap can tell you a lot about the Read More

Thank God for Growth: Nicole’s Natural Hair Journey

When we look at throwback photos of us from high school, or they pull themselves to the top of our Facebook feeds (most times to our dismay), we often get a jolt of memories.

We all take a look back at who we used to be, how we used to look, and are grateful for change. Our funky feature for this month, Nicole sure is, and she even uses that driver’s license photo as a benchmark Read More

Who Said You Can’t Keep Your Curls After Going Straight?

Naturals can’t wear their hair straight! That’s a common phrase that lingers around the natural hair community but has been proven to be false. Natural hair is versatile, durable and uncategorized.  Twenty three year old blogger, Lexi Marcella began her healthy hair journey in 2011. Her hair is definitely something to lust over! You can now hear about it from Lexi, herself. I began blogging shortly after and have since received many questions about my natural hair — straight and curly. Even after a short time period of growing and caring for my natural hair, I quickly learned that heat styling Read More
