Curly Caregivers Book Scholarships! (Cycle 6)


Most of you know me as CurlyNikki - natural hair advocate and Gia’s mom. But if you couldn’t tell from the ‘on the couch’ theme, I’m also The Licensed Psychotherapist Formerly known as Alicia (my gub’ment name).

I work primarily with women struggling with issues related to interpersonal relationships, anxiety, depression, body image disorders and PTSD. When the Hubs and I finally pick a city and stay put (for longer than a minute), I have plans to open my own practice. Psychology is my first love and no matter where this fantabulous CurlyNikki ride takes me, I will always be a therapist.

Dyeing Natural Hair- FAQs




Carmen and I made a FAQS regarding our permanent hair color and natural hair.  Both of us have professional permanent hair color. We do believe that we are considered "natural" within the natural hair community because neither one of us has experienced a PERMANENT hair texture difference nor is our hair damaged (falling out/ breaking off) from our permanent color. Our goal is to embrace the texture and the versatility of natural hair.

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!

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!
