      I would suggest you start with the getting started guide. It will help you analyze your hair and determine where to start. I am also getting a forum up and running where you can ask more specific questions.
      Thank you for visiting my site and please return!

      This sounds like a porosity issue. Have you ever used any products to help correct porosity?

      HI! Have you considered leave-in conditioners? Those always help me maintain moisture throughout the entire day. Also try curling gels and spritzers; they seals my ends and prevents them from drying out. In addition, if you’d tried every product and every method try keeping a mini hair spray bottle filled with water. Then throughout the day, if you feel those ends crinkling just spray some water for guaranteed moisture retention.

    Hi, Ms. Lana. I’ve been natural for a few weeks now but don’t know which product is for me; Cantu hair products or Shea Moisture hair products or Kinky Curly hair products. Please give me some advice on which one to use.

    • natural9 says:

      Hi there, I saw your comment and realized that I use two of those products! I use kinky curly for shampoo and leave-in, shea moisture for conditioner, and several others for styling and custards and so on. I’d suggest trying each one out and seeing how they work for your hair until you find the right combination for your hair type and texture! Hope that helped:)

    I’ve been natural for a couple of years now. I get my hair flat ironed now because its easier to maintain but I’ve noticed that my scalp gets severly flaky & dry. I will sometimes put the African Pride oil on my scalp or BB’s super grow. I dont know what else to do to prevent this. My hair also sheds alot. Any suggestions are welcome. And since ive been flat ironing for a while whats the best products to get my curls back?

    Hello, I have been natural for about 6 months now and have gotten pretty good growth from what i can see but my problem is with building up the self confidence i need to actually wear my beautiful natural hair. I did the big chop and before the big chop have never had short hair i’m 22 and feel as though if i where to wear my coils that society would view it as ” inappropriate” or that the women at my job would view it as unprofessional. Any advise would be really helpful .Thankyou!!

      It took me a little while to feel comfortable and confident with my hair so I understand. I wore comb coils & my short fro when my hair was shorter. I don’t see why your short natural hair would be unprofessional at work at all. Put on some pretty jewelry and make up and rock it with pride.

    Hi MsLala I’m a teen who wants to go natural. But I don’t want to do the big chop. I’m TOOOO SCARED! So, I would like to know if there are any alternatives and what should I do to keep my hair up and how can I transition to natural hair. And I’ve read that the big chop is a MUST! Is that true?
