Do you check the ingredients when you are looking for hair products? You should. I have already written several articles about the dangers of certain chemicals and ingredients used in creating Black hair care products and which to avoid. You can find one here and another one here.  Always check the ingredients Watch out, some companies ar...
I'm Apple and I've been natural for a little over 2 years. Most of that time, I've been stumbling around trying to figure the process out, and caused more damage to my hair as I went. I used to have BSL 4a/4b hair (with small sections that are 3c), but now it barely reaches the bottom of my neck. Basically: I'm here because I need to be around peop

Her induction to the highest court in the United States brings with it the aspirations and dreams of Black women throughout the country.

Recently, I decided I wanted box braids to grow out my
Funky sour musty danky sticky loc scalp. You best get onto that before it gets out of hand. Not enough thorough cleansing of your scalp is going to cause this problem –but it's a mistake that can be fixed yourself, if you catch it early enough. I know I have written about scalp issues a lot. Like here, and here. But it's im...
Hi all,I had dreadlocks for 8 years, and just recently cut my hair. For the past few months I have been going to a barber to get my hair buzzed, but yesterday I cut, bleached and dyed my hair myself....Well let me tell ya..I ended up having to cut ALL my hair completely off because the color came out wrong (like now I have none what so ever), but m
I had sisterlocks installed a few days ago and love how then ends are a bit loose and frizzy. Is there something I can do to maintain this look and ensure that my ends don't lock?View on the ForumOriginal author: Timor
