Try it.

I shampoo in braids and condition in twists. On my final rinse out of the conditioner, I take out the twists and make sure all the product is rinsed well.

My hair is only about 10 inches long,...

Rosewater!

I actually just started using rosewater on my hair this week because I am convinced that this Midwestern water is no good for daily moisturizing. I also want to avoid piling on "product" repeatedly...

I'm always trying to encourage girls I know to go natural. They always say, "My hair is way too nappy to go natural and it wouldn't look like yours." I try to tell them I have high-end kinks (4b)...

I agree.

I totally agree. Many of kinky-curlies strive for that 3b jheri curl look. Type 2 ladies scrunch the crunch to make those waves into curls. Type 4 ladies twist and curl to make those kinks into...

I can't find a salon in my area that actually does natural hair. (Sometimes I want to be lazy and get my hair done too.)

Happy New Year!

Happy new year and welcome back!

My hair resolution is to enjoy my hair in 2011. I think I let it stress me out too much in 2010.

I'm not familiar with military rules and regulations, but maybe another option would be a super cute, super short cut.

Thanks for the feedback ladies! I especially like to know what fads don't work for people, so I know what to avoid.
