A Few Things for Your Last-Minute Christmas List

Shopping for your curlfriends can be a conquerable task, if you ask me. I think I never really gave it much thought until this project. So, I thought, ‘if I could only give five gifts to a new or seasoned naturalista, what would they be?’  By new, I mean freshly big chopped, and by seasoned, I mean being in the natural hair game three (plus) years. She has cut, colored, mastered many styles and gained much experience with her hair. If you need a little help this holiday season for what to get either of these ladies, here’s what I came Read More

Long Hair Does Care!

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

I don’t know about you guys, but my wash day is usually on a Sunday, so I use that time at Read More
