    Hey ladies, just checking in! So November last year I blogged about cutting out the use of blowdryers and straighteners. Heat can be extremely drying and dry/brittle hair = breakage. 6 months on, you can see why going heat free  was necessary…   Look at the difference in thickness. Amazing right?!  (The curl/kink/coil pattern is still the same, however it’s more visible on the finer section of hair) As well as dropping the heated tools, I hardly comb my hair too. I feel like both of these factors are contributing to the thickness I’m retaining. Why aren’t you combing your hair much, I hear you say? Well because, excessive combing/brushing can lead to your your hair shaft being sliced/shred

  • Hair & Style with Thaina

                Hey Thaina, have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? Initially it wasn’t a conscious decision. To be honest, my younger self didn’t know that I had options. My hair was “unmanageable, unacceptable and a relaxer was absolutely necessary.” The notion is ridiculous to me now but that was what I thought until 2006. I maintained relatively “healthy” and long relaxed hair but I wanted a change and got a cropped Halle Berry-esqe cut shortly after moving to California. I was picky about who permed my hair so I just grew it out and cut off the relaxed ends. I wasn’t

             (Photo Credit: Pete Monsanto)   Hey Rene, have you worn you hair naturally all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? I have mostly worn my hair natural but definitely had my relaxer experience, twice actually. At ten years old I had my first relaxer to make my hair a bit more manageable. It wasn’t straight just very wavy. I didn’t think much of it as a kid I just liked being able to do it myself! I moved to Germany at 13 where eventually the relaxer grew out. By 15 I had entered a phase where I stopped using all products in general. I went vegetarian too.

      H A I R   T A L K || Geraldine   Have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? I’ve been natural for over 5 years.  I decided to return back to my natural tresses after a weave installation left my hair in a thin and damaged state.  I decided to explore staying natural after I realized that after allowing my hair to recover from the damage, there was no reason why I couldn’t remain without a chemical straightener in my hair     How did family & friends react to this decision? My family accepted my decision to become natural.  They were more shocked
