There are a. lot. of natural hair methods, routines, and products out there. Understatement of the year, right? And if you’re anything like me, you want to try them all out to see if one may be the amaze-balls natural hair answer that they claim to be. Or because ‘I’m a natural hair blogger and I have to stay informed for my readers’ and all that jazz I tell myself to make it okay. Well sometimes it’s all just too much, you know? So much so that you forget how to care for your hair…
Right. So I know this post will probably have some mixed thoughts and maybe even produce some kinda feelings, but I absolutely cannot deal with baby hair. I just can’t, and most of the time I won’t even try. It’s usually pointless, anyway, and ends up wasting my time. So my edges just go untouched.
Besides feeling pretty crappy and uninspired lately; I’ve also had thoughts of self-doubt creeping into the back of my mind. What right do I have keeping a natural hair blog?

Ordering just about everything online means that I have to plan around running out of product and ordering at just the right time so that I can receive my face-care products before I run out of the ones I’m currently using. Right. It rarely happens that way. Well because I’m a slacker. So this time when I received My Skin Trx package in the mail my face was more than ready…
Heat damage. A word bad enough to get your mouth washed out with the proverbial bar of soap. It’s one of those things we hear a lot about in the natural hair community; but unless it happens to us, do we really understand the severity of it? Sometimes another natural’s experience is enough to keep us from making the same mistake, so Curly In Colorado is sharing her experience with us in her latest post. Heed her words!
This weekend I splurged on books. More specifically, I splurged on books about natural hair, the history of natural hair, and the civil rights movement. I call it my black history book haul and I can’t wait to get home every night to dive head-first into the pages.
