  • I luv my natural hair. I haven't had a relaxer since 2003, but have done the weave and braid theing since. My biggest problem is that being of mixed race, I have more straight hair then curly and can't get the curl defined, but I know my beautiful natural Soros will offer up suggestions...I can't wait.

  • We here with WINGFIELD pledge!
  • I have been a master stylist for over seven years, and worked in several hair salons from New York to South Florida. I grew my locs for seven years, and took great pleasure of educating myself on how to care for the texture I was born with. I now pass that knowledge on to people that have the same questions I had when I first started my journey....I since cut my locs off so I could experience some of the natural hairstyles I didn't get a chance to explore and experience for myself.

  • 4 years ago I switched from relaxer to texurizer(I was told its easy to transition to natural this way). Didn't long locks fell out daily. few weeks ago (3-4), I cut it all off and started new... It's been a major adjustment - but I'm getting used to it and enjoying myself. I still have trouble with hair care - as I have had no real direction and very new to the natural world :-)
    miK, 9 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I am getting my dreads next week. I have been in braids for years and had long hair but a bald spot right in the middle of my head. So I decided to cut it but after a really bad cut I have made matters worse. I had to start over. So now 6 months later, I have 6 inches of hair to dread. Question - I have dry hair, I am style lazy and love to shampoo. BaaaaaD L. But I am concerned about which products to use to start my dreads. Alcohol etc.. drys it out more. Any products which are natural base which would be better?
    LP, 9 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I have been natural for 9 months now. And I just regret waiting for so long. My natural hair is so much more beautiful and fits my personality. I always felt like I couldn't find the right style with relaxed hair or hair extensions, now I am perfectly comfy with my curls. I wish my sisters in Africa would feel the same way. I promise to spread the word in my country and help more girls achieve this feeling of freedom.

  • Been nappy for about 3 years now but decided to chop it all off and do it again. Now I'm wearing very loose braids to protect it while it grows. I went with the kanekalon (spell check) kinky twists. Some really light hair, so I can wear them long without the worry of ripping my follicle out. I don't care what nobody says; natural african hair is the most flexible and workable thang out. I'm excited for the day to unveil my hair and show it off and show out!
