I got my hair styled.
Not “done”, because my hair does not need fixing, and is not broken.

Build Your Natural Hair Essential Kit in 10

natural hair essentials must have kit

Here are mine…

  • Shampoo and Conditioner
    For obvious reasons.
  • Micro fiber towel
    After washing your hair – micro fiber verses terry cloth towels prevent snags.  You can find an inexpensive towel in the car supply section, or just use an old t shirt.
  • Butterfly Clamps
    Before styling – use clamps to part in a minimum of four sections
  • Wide Tooth Comb
    Helps rake large sections of kinks
  • Rat Tail Comb
    Use the end for neat parts.  I’ve been known to be resourceful, and even use the end of a pen!
  • Denman Brush
    I was very skeptical about using this plastic brush on my thick kinky hair, but wow – now I can’t live with out it.
  • Oil
    Add a few drops of oil to each section.  My top favorite oils are jojoba, coconut, vitamin E, aragan / Moroccan oil or castor oil.
  • Spray Bottle
    I get the most twist-out definition by competing twists on dry hair with light sprays of water
  • Satin Bonnet
    No style is complete – without preserving it at night with a sexy, well not so sexy cover

Hair Therapy

lady kinnksMy hair has been in a yuck for a while.  My twist-outs lasted a day or so and kind of fell apart.  I couldn’t figure out why, but I realize I deviated from what works for my hair, the SCOSS routine.  I honestly couldn’t get the comb through my hair and experienced more hair lost than usual.

SCOSS - Shampoo - Condition - Oil - Shea Butter- Style

Salon Experience

Hot Combin’…
A year plus ago, I had an itch to change up my hair via the hot comb, but needed a trusted referral.

After getting my hair pressed in the past, I would see patches of different textures from burnt hair.  After applying water, it just wouldn’t kink back up.  To re-‘fro, I would cut much of my hair off. Understanding my concern, Ms. Stylist pressed it, but not too hard.  When my hair maintains its straightness, I know my coils have been disrupted.  This is the main reason I do not press.

The ‘Fro

I don’t do it often.  When I am not doing Twist-Outs I rock the ‘fro.

How do I do it you ask?

1. Wash hair and section it out by using braids. bantu knots or large twist.
2. Comb out, and blow dry each section
