Now it’s 2014 Will The Natural Hair Trend Stay?


Last year the natural hair trend was big. Everywhere I looked I saw curly hair everywhere…from people who did the big chop, and even transitioning.

I saw tons of more celebrities who we’re rocking their curly hair last year on the red carpet and in movies from Kerry Washington and Teyonah Parris.

With me I’ve had other naturals come to me and ask me how do yo do it our how did i stay natural for so long…etc…and some say they can’t handle it….i work in retail a lot of people always ask me these question. But for me it’s all i know and nothing else because ive been natural my entire life. I guess i could understand others who just now starting out being natural which is hard for them all they know about is the perm which is complete opposite for me…I would tell others my hair would fall out because i don’t know how to take care of permed hair and don’t want to learn…Natural hair is easy for me.

So do you think that this year a lot of naturals are going back to to creamy crack?

i love my natural hair

The No Shampoo Method: Natural Hair


I bet your wondering what?! I don’t understand. How do you get your hair cleansed?

Well here’s why.

A lot of the shampoos we purchase either have sulfates in them or silicones or both in a lot of cases.  Surfactants are extremely harsh for our hair and they take away the moisture from our hair. This is why we choose the “No Shampoo Method”  Curly hair is really easy to lose its moisture to avoid losing moisture from your hair after your wash and goes But I’m not saying to ditch your shampoo all you have to do try avoiding all silicones and sulfates in you hair products.(My list has here that sulfate and silicon free)

Also I wanted to say try to stretch it into a month or as needed. I do wash my hair once a month or as needed.

When you are not using shampoo use conditioner (sulfate and Silicone free) in between your wash and goes to cleanse your hair it works as good as a shampoo and it brings in moisture. While you are using conditioner as your cleanser message your scalp to bring down oils and dirt from the scalp.

Try Choosing a conditioner That have

  • Emollients, which soften, smooth the hair and give it shine. There are hundreds of them, including such natural emollients as vegetable oils and nut butters. Widely used emollients include glycerides and liposomes.
  • Proteins, which temporarily “repair” the hair and/or protect it. Occasionally proteins will build up on some people’s hair, especially on healthier hair. In this case, alternate with a protein-free conditioner. Examples of proteins include silk, soy, wheat, keratin or individual amino acids (components of proteins).
  • Humectants, which absorb water and hold in moisture. They are absolutely crucial in a conditioner for curly hair. Panthenol, vegetable glycerin, sorbitol and honey are just a few humectants to look for on the label. Moisturizers soften and control to curly hair. Amino acids and aloe vera are two great moisturizer.

Here is a tip on styling your curls

  • Choose a gel—must be ‘cone-free and preferably clear to allow the natural shine to come through.
  • Don’t ever brush your hair.
  • Detangle only when your hair is soaking wet. just your fingers.
  • Never rub your hair with a towel. Instead, gently blot the water using scrunching motions.
  • Gently apply product, preferably by scrunching.
  • Air dry your hair whenever possible or diffuse only partially to avoid frizz.
  • Never touch your hair while it’s drying.

Hope This Helps
