  • Hair talk with Nibi

    Posted by CFYH | February 25, 2013 | Reader Features

      Hey ladies so today I’m catching up with Nibi, owner of The Kinky Apothecary blog and store - The first kinky hair supply store in Lagos, Nigeria.           Hey Nibi, have you always been natural? If not when did you ‘go natural’?     I’ve gone natural (or gone BACK natural) twice. First when I was 21. I big chopped and loved rocking a twa for a couple of years, Then I started letting it grow out, although I didn’t really know what I was doing, so I struggled, but I refrained from touching the creamy crack.   I moved back to Nigeria for work in 2006, and though the comments about my hair rolled

  • Guest Post: Cynthia’s Hair FAQ

    Posted by CFYH | February 8, 2013 | CFYH Features

    Hey ladies,   You’ve most probably seen Cynthia featured on the blog/facebook page quite a bit. Many of you have commented on her lovely twist-outs so below she was happy to share with CFYH  just how she achieves it.   Cynthia’s twist-out How to:                         Some more tips that work for me:     If you need the basics of a 2 strand twist, watch THIS. It’s done dry not wet, but rules the same. I snip the ends (approx. 1/8inch) of my hair after I twist. I probably need proper trim, but it helps. Less product in my hair works better and I only apply products in sections. I

  • Teyonah Parris at the SAG awards 2013

    Posted by CFYH | January 29, 2013 | CFYH Features

      “There’s a lot going on with Teyonah Parris’ hair and while we applaud her for trying something new, there’s too much going on here” – Stylelist.com          …Erm What??? I’m really interested in finding the person that wrote that because they clearly didn’t see what the rest of the world saw. She looked beautiful and her hair was nothing short of stunning at the Sag Awards 2013.   Mad Men Actress Teyonah Parris wore a gorgeous pompadour updo for the Screen Actors Guild Awards created by superwoman herself, Felicia Leatherwood of Loving your hair with natural care.         For me it’s always refreshing to see a lovely natural hairstyle on the runway,

I do natural hair tutorials on my Youtube channel     Have you been natural all your life; if not why did you choose to ‘go natural’?   No. I went natural about 2 years ago. At the time, I was always wearing extensions and finally figured, why not just go natural and stop relaxing since I never wear my real hair out anyway? Also, I wanted to see what my ‘real’ texture would be like, since I’ve been relaxed since the

    Today’s feature is with one of the fabulous CFYH reader’s…Zee!          Have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to ‘go natural’?   I had my first relaxer when I was about 2 years old. So natural hair is still pretty new to me. Years of relaxers, heat damage from straighteners and just the general lack of knowledge for how to ‘Care For My Hair’ lol, resulted in its vast deterioration.       I decided the only way to reverse this was to start again. This was my main reason for going natural. I had tried in the past but gave up about 6 months in and got a perm
