Long Hair Does Care!

The number one question I am always asked pertains to hair growth. Never fails! On my hair growth journey, I have tried a lot of different tips and tricks to maximize it. When it comes to growing long, healthy locks, it is important to stimulate hair growth and retain length. I’ll be sharing a few of my tips that cover both of those key components! The first tip is such an old hair hack, but I feel it’s been forgotten about over time. I’m talking about hot oil scalp treatments! It’s an easy way to stimulate hair growth if you Read More

Renee’s Corner: Thankful for the Funk

It’s cooling down, stores are selling pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, and we’re snacking on Halloween candy until we can’t anymore… These are signs it is definitely FALL.

Women with looser curl patterns sometimes have an easier time finding a gel that defines their ringlets, and I want that same kind of definition for my curls!

One of my favorite ingredients that I look for Read More

Underneath It All: Protecting Your Hair With Wigs

Protective styling is something many black women are familiar with. The aim of protective styling is to reduce the amount of manipulation done to our natural hair, be it through styling, coloring or heat application, that can cause damage. Protective styles also serve the purpose of allowing us to experiment with different hairstyles and looks. One minute, you could be rocking braids, the next week you could be rocking a sleek red bob, another minute you could be turning heads in a gorgeous afro curly wig; the space for creativity is as vast as you want it to be!

Summer came and went, so now we have to get back to our daily regimen of preparing our girls’ for school. Here’s a quick look into our survival guide for tackling hair for Back to School with UFD!
