Posted by NI4TW on Feb 5, 2018 7:32:31 PM

When I take a minute to look at the proliferation of the natural hair movement and the rise of the availability in products specifically suited to care for and manage naturally curly, coily, kinky and wavy hair, I am amazed. Historically, African-American hair care has come a long way and I am proud to have played a role in spearheading the efforts to respond to our beauty and care management needs. It’s also great to know that we are no longer separated from the knowledge or tools we need to care for our hair. Just thinking back to what the options for our hair care used to be always makes me appreciate where we are today.

1. Give direction on how you want your protective style installed.

2. Give your hair proper protection as well as a chance to rest.

IMG_2010.jpgIf one of your resolutions is working out, then you know that a key part of exercise is your warm up. Warming up is important because it primes your body for vigorous activity so that you don’t hurt yourself; it readies your respiratory, cardiovascular, nervous, musculoskeletal and nervous systems to adapt with ease to the physical exertion ahead.  My Protective Styles line does the exact same favor for your hair by priming it to withstand the wear and tear of styling.

Style Showcase: Head Wraps and Goddess Braids to Protect Hair Strength and Length in Winter

Posted by NI4TW on Nov 16, 2017 5:21:05 PM

It’s that time of year again when the temperatures start to dip and the air becomes dry. None of that is very good for rocking twist out or blow out styles. Cold, dry weather damages hair cuticles and leaves the hair shaft unable to retain moisture. Dry brittle hair, of course, is more susceptible to tangles and breakage. Protective styling is the key to strengthening your hair cuticles and enabling your hair to withstand the cold so that you can retain your length. I've discussed it before in the blog post here but I want to continue talking specifically about protective styling practices you absolutely want to incorporate into your hair care and maintenance regimen.
