Natural Hair Tips

Here's How Often You Should Really Wash Curly Hair

Shampoo, condition, moisturise, seal, repeat.

That's pretty much the hair care pattern that most naturalistas are taught nowadays.

But, it sometimes feels as if every week there's a new trend that encourages us curly girls to change our routine or try something else.

Whilst, this isn't a bad thing, it can result in a girl feeling pretty overwhelmed. 

Some experts claim that we should shampoo curls once every week, others say do it every day. Then there are the experts that claim curls shouldn't be washed at all. Yikes!

Can you imagine how it would feel (and smell) to have a head full of unwashed hair?

Not cute.

So, what's the real answer?

KISS: Keep. It. Simple. Sister.

Firstly, when it comes to your hair, you'll always get the best results when you keep things simple.

In other words, get rid of the complex hair regimens and find a quick and easy but effective routine that works for you.

Shampoo when there's build-ip

Secondly, there isn't a one-size fits all solution when it comes to shampooing curls.

However, as a general rule of thumb, condition often, shampoo when needed.

Condition, Condition, Condition.

Conditioning your hair (also known as co-washing) should pretty much be done every week unless your hair is in a protective style such as braids or a weave.

Shampooing should only happen when your hair is dirty and has product build-up.

If your hair is in great condition (pardon the pun), don't rush to shampoo it. Condition instead.

Trust me, your curls will thank you for it.

Now, it's your turn. 

How often do you wash your curls?

How Do I Know My Hair Type?

victoria olubi

This month we're focusing on hair types!

It's a topic that's constantly being discussed in the natural hair community but knowing your hair type can be quite confusing. 

Thankfully the good folks at BuzzFeed have created a great image which makes knowing your hair type so much easier! 

You can literally look at the chart and figure out your hair type within seconds.

Take a look at the chart here.

PS. It's perfectly normal to have several hair types! Mine varies from 3b to 4b which means I have a lot of textures to deal with, understand and manage. It's not always easy dealing with multiple hair textures but it is a lot of fun :)

Here's to knowing more about your hair and loving every inch of it!

Protective Styling For Spring: Braids

victoria olubi

Do you sometimes struggle with coming up with hairstyle ideas for spring?

Here are some of our favourite braided hairstyles.

Here are some of our favourite braided hairstyles.

Finding not just great protective hairstyles but styles that are great for the spring months can be really difficult.

Here are some of our favourite braided looks for this season.

Now you may be wondering 'why should i braid my hair during the spring?'

Here are some reasons why braids rock!

1. Braids enable you to keep your hair protected from what can be chaotic weather. One minute it's raining, the next it's boiling hot. Because the weather is unpredictable, it can affect your hair significantly. By keeping it in braids, you're potentially protecting your hair from the negative side effects of harsh spring weather.

2. They don't take long to do. Braids can be put in in as little as 2 hours. Even if they take 4 hours, you end up with a hairstyle that lasts for between 4 weeks to 2 months.

3. They look awesome! Braids are feminine, girly and make you look fabulous! Need I say more?

4. They're versatile. You can wear your hair up or down or both. Braids are an extremely versatile style that are great for busy women who are pressed for time.

Enjoy the sunshine!

How to Maintain Your TWA During the Spring

The weather is absolutely gorgeous at the moment (which is a rarity here in the UK).

On looking after your TWA

On looking after your TWA

Personally, I'm loving every minute of it and I'm soaking up the Vitamin D whilst it lasts.

The thing about spring weather is that it can be sporadic; one minute it's raining and the next it's boiling hot.

This can also cause problems for your, especially natural hair.

If you have a TWA and have recently gone natural you might be confused about how to manage your hair during this period of time. Don't fret though, today, you'll learn  one effective tip that will enable you to look after your tresses.

#1. Condition daily. Co-washing is one of the most common buzz words in the natural hair community. It simply refers to washing your hair with conditioner rather than shampoo. You can co-wash as often or as little as you like, a bit of experimentation will give you an idea of how often to do it. To get the best results during the spring, co-wash with an organic shampoo for curly hair. In other words, use a conditioner that was made specifically for curly or afro hair textures and make sure it's free from harsh chemicals that strip your hair of its natural oils.

So that's it for today's tip. Stay tuned for part 2 of how to maintain your TWA during the spring.
