Hola Chicas,

I'm giving away 6 Conditioning Baskets (worth ~$90 each) this month (December 2014) to question askers and answerers!

If you see a curly-in-need who has asked a question under a post, answer it! If you are a curly who has a question that needs an answer, ask it! Not under this post, on all the posts! 

The first three baskets will go to the three curlies with the highest number of posts this month (12/1-12/31, comments from previous months don't count) and the next three will go to three randomly selected commenters.  Past winners are eligible!

Which posts/articles count for the contest? All of them!  Good luck!

*contest ends December 31, 2014 at 5pm EST*

*Please only post comments that spark conversation and further discussion. Free products are EVERYTHING but this is really about strengthening our community and helping other naturals!*

Later Gators,
Nik

Homemade Hair Tonics for Strong & Healthy Hair!


A healthy head of hair with a healthy, flake-free scalp is a wonderful thing. So wonderful and desired, in fact, that there is an enormous market that caters solely to it. Walk down any hair product aisle and you’ll be overwhelmed with then number of choices you have for shampoos, conditioners, rinses, sprays, and dyes (to name just a few things.) You could spend days, and lots of money, trying to figure out just what chemical concoction will work the wonders it promises. If you’d like to break up that routine, try making some of your own products at home. I have found them to be simple, pure, and more effective that many of the things I have bought in stores.

1. Nettle Hair Tonic
Rich in iron, a rinse made with nettles can help combat hair loss/promote hair growth. Drinking nettle tea may also help battle hair loss, as iron can help with circulation to the scalp, in turn fueling hair growth. Nettles will also help with an imbalance of sebum (the oil that your pores produce) which can make a difference if you suffer from dandruff or dry scalp. For something that is such a pain to even brush up against, it’s a wonderful herb when fully utilized!

Nelly Muse Is Naturally Glam!



Tell Me About Yourself!
My name is Nelly, I live in Paris and I'm an accountant by day. At home I am a fashion and beauty blogger/vlogger. I have been wearing my natural hair for over 2 years now. My favorite thing is that I like being able to style my hair differently. My hair does not have the same texture depending on the products that I use. It's fun.

But taking care of my hair takes me too much time. I spend a day take care of it, shampoo to styling. This is what I like least.


Favorite Product
Right now I like coconut oil. It softens, maintains hydration and protects my hair. For hairstyles, I do it all the time.

Sweet Potato for Hair Loss and Dryness



I am a massive fan of the sweet potato and it is not just because I hate pumpkin. I mean you pumpkin fans are relentless with turning everything into pumpkin flavorings! Well, I think the sweet potato does not get its shine and glory, and with all the benefits to our bodies it is about time we showed just how great this important vegetable is!

The Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are more than just a yummy ingredient in casseroles and sweet potatoes pies. With its phytochemical-richness it needs a little more respect outside of the kitchen, as it is loaded with unique nutritional benefits and can help your physical health as well as your hair.

Traveling With Natural Hair- CN's Favorite Things!

natural hair travel

Y'all know I stay gone during the winter (hell, the summer too) with our international shenanigans and family fun time,  so consolidating my hair care arsenal is an absolute necessity.  I used to haul a gang of products and tools around the globe, like enough that it filled it's own carry-on size suitcase (which sucked cause I had to pay to check it anyway).  But now, with a rather solid and predictable hair regimen and a small group of products that do double duty,  I can pack extra clothes! #SheStayFresh
