I love terrycloth towels! I used to use t-shirts, but they just weren't getting my hair dry. After I shower and apply my leave-in and gel, I turban my hair in a terrycloth towel for 20 minutes, and...

Leave-in conditioners are awesome because they help prevent damage and breakage, and they also add moisture. I love Kinky-Curly Knot Today because it is extremely light but hydrating, so I can use a...

Sometimes, sulfates can be wonderful. They're great for clarifying, because honestly, living with build-up and dirt on the scalp is much worse for your hair than the occasional sulfate wash. I...

I like showering at night, and I find that my hair curls a lot better and with more bounce and volume when I sleep with it wet. I drape it over my pillow, and by the morning, even if it is still a...

When my hair was that short, I put it in a turban for about 20 minutes to get it to dry faster and with volume. I do that now with APL hair, and it still works :) Once you take the turban out,...

My hair hates the YTC line. The Carrots shampoo doesn't clean, the Cucumber and Tomato shampoos are stripping, and the Cucumber conditioner is greasy :( I wanted to like these lines so much, but my...

Wavy hair and straightening? Heat free?

Hello :)
I have 2b/2c and sometimes 3a hair. Most of the time, I like the way it looks with the wisps and spirals, and I hadn't straightened it in years until yesterday. Today, everyone says it...

Honestly, I think switching from sulfate shampoos to sulfate-free lowpoos would be more beneficial than switching to soap. Soap's pH can be very high, around 9. With your hair being around 4.5, that...

If you still want to try this concept, I would recommend maybe testing out aloe vera juice instead of gel! You can get the huge gallons of aloe vera juice at Whole Foods for not too much money :) I...

Coloring over henna?

I henna'd my hair in November, and now that I've grown it out, my hair is about 3/4 reddish and 1/4 light brown. I was wondering if I could use Herbatint or Naturtint over henna and it would work...

Removing henna? Please, please, please

Thoughts on Trader Joe's hair products?

Today, I picked up TJ Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo and TJ Nourish Spa Conditioner. I was wondering how it worked for everyone. Thanks!

Hi :)
Don't waste your money on the DermOrganic! It doesn't really even lather or clean, and yet it makes your hair feel stripped. I think from the past, Nature's Gate has been pretty good.

I have used Everyday Shea before :) It is gentle, but it is alkaline because it has a soap base. You may need to use an ACV rinse occasionally for pH balance.
