Curly hair is naturally beautiful and vibrant. Still, sometimes you want to switch up your style. Adding a pop of color is a great way to make a bold change. Unfortunately, adding moisture-zapping color to curls that already have a tendency to be dry can be intimidating. If you have curly or coily hair, you probably already go to great lengths to keep your tresses properly moisturized. Dyeing your hair could leave you with dried out or fried, unhealthy looking hair.

Sweat is one of those things that can really ruin your day in terms of hair care. Fortunately, there are ways to stop sweat from causing hair damage in curly hair or coily hair. This would include type 3 hair or type 4 hair, officially. Here is some info about what sweat does to hair, as well as some ways you can deal with sweat in your daily routine.

If you have fine curly hair, you can attest that it can be both a gift and a burden. On the plus side, you have versatile voluminous hair that allows you to wear it in various styles. With its wild and free yet elegant nature, you always stand out among the crowd.

However, with such benefits also come challenges. Curly hair requires unique maintenance to keep it in tip-top condition. Otherwise, you may notice breakages, thinning, frizz,  limpness, split ends, and fly-aways. Though poor grooming techniques can lead to damaged, dry, or brittle hair, there are also other causes. These include chemical treatments, heat exposure, and, paradoxically, your maintenance routine if it becomes tangled up.

The hair and wellness market is awash with sprays, refreshers, and oils, all promising to remake the washday experience. However, we can all agree that nothing comes close to you actually washing your hair.

If women had the time, I'm sure most of us would wash our hair every two days. Not that it helps-over washing is an issue-but because of how it makes us feel.

Too bad women never get the chance or the time to wash their hair as much as they want to. If you can do it twice a week, that's an achievement worth telling your friends. If you can find time to do it thrice or four times a week, put a yard sign out-front with your name and 2024 beneath it.

So your short-tapered cut just transformed into a teeny weeny afro – leaving you in the wonder of what to do with your hair whenever the Lakeside beach beckons you to go for a swim; say once a week. 
Protective styles stimulate growth and repair breakage over time by encouraging healthy hair growth. Professional Robin Groover explains “The benefits of healthy protective styles are length retention, stress free maintenance, and versatility. The objective is healthy hair with style ease that does not require lots of time to look good.”
We always think the grass is greener on the other side, right? If your hair is limp and fine, you wish desperately for more body and volume. Your hair may grow at a snail’s pace while you dream of gaining inches. So much of our confidence is tied to our hair, and yet we somehow manage to always find something wrong with it.

Every girl loves to grow hair faster and have long, smooth and silky hair. To achieve this, they often look for medical supplements or try several hair products that are advertised to magically enhance the hair growth process.

This often leads to stress and disappointment. The reason being several controllable and uncontrollable factors affect hair growth.

Being stuck inside for weeks on end doesn’t make us want to style our hair in cute styles and live our best hair lives - which is totally understandable. As some areas are going into month three of quarantine or stay at home orders - the boredom is rising, and playing around with different hairstyles doesn’t seem to be such an impossible task. In fact - this is actually the perfect time to play around and perfect your technique! Staying indoors for the most part means not being around others who might judge or make you feel self-conscious about your style. Instead of rocking that messy bun for the fourth (fifth, even?) day in a row, let down your locks and play around with a few of these fun styles - we’ll even give you some awesome video step by step guides to show you the way to rockin’ quarantine hair.
If there's one thing I know, it's that natural hair needs correct care - which means taking protection to the next level and not just assuming that the products and techniques you are using are right. When it comes to styling natural hair, the variety can be endless, but if you are not taking protection seriously, you may end up with damaged strands and regrets. 
Do you want to stop processing your hair with relaxers, keratin treatments, or other chemical processes to keep it straight? Maybe your hair is damaged from all the processing and you want to take a break, or perhaps you are in the mood to rock your natural texture.

Since we love to talk about all things hair, and it is not every day that hair is a part of the news, we have decided to talk about natural hair discrimination and the passing of California’s Crown Act law.

Before we get into talking about this newly passed law, we should talk about what hair discrimination is.
