Dear Natural Ninnies,
Although your hair is natural, it does mean necessarily mean it is wash & go. During the different seasons of the year, especially these summer months, your hair is the only thing between you & the harsh sun. Luckily for you, there is strength in natural hair. Braids & twists will assist you when you decide to grow your hair for the long haul. If you so choose to straighten your hair, please use ceramic or tourmaline flat irons & hot rollers instead of curling rods. Blow dry your hair on the coolest setting whenever you cannot do a roller set. Keratin treatments may also benefit natural beauties, for it does not include chemicals that straighten hair but assists the hair in straightening itself.
** For products, try Beauty 4 Ashes God Head Shampoo & Conditioner, Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk, & Olive or Safflower Oil
- Heat protective sprays are always useful; however do not use oil-based sprays as they can actually cause the hair to “fry” in the irons
- Protein Protein Protein – in your food & products

- Post exercise & swimming, wash & condition hair with a baking soda/water paste & use Lekair Cholesterol or Lustrasilk conditioner
