3 Reasons Why You Absolutely Need to Use Leave-in Conditioner


by Kanisha Parks of BlackNaps.org

Since going natural, you’ve probably questioned the importance of having a leave-in conditioner in your regimen. Some leave-in conditioners seem like an extra, unnecessary step in your arsenal of products and many naturals choose not to use them at all. Others, especially those who enjoy using the LOC method, always tend to have a leave-in conditioner handy.

Leave-in conditioners may not seem as important as using a shampoo or conditioner, but they actually serve many purposes: to nourish and moisturize the hair, prevent breakage and split ends, soften the hair, tame frizz, and aid in detangling. Many leave-in conditioners have water as one of their first ingredients: these are mainly great for replenishing dry hair with moisture. Still, others may not even have water listed as an ingredient. The focus of these types of leave-ins is more about sealing in moisture while ensuring easier detangling and smoothness. Both of them can also aid in prevention of damage/breakage, and strength.

Tiffany Is Naturally Glam!


Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I’ve done it all. I’ve been the Big Chopper, the Big Shaver, now I’m transitioning (until I get tired of the ‘permed ends’ and will just chop it all off).  I regret, one year (during my divorce) my hair was about 7 inches natural,  I went to the barber shop and shaved it ALL off.  I vowed to NEVER do that again.  I missed being natural. So now here I am today…I’m BACK!!!

Had you always embraced your texture?  
No. Natural, is a LOT of work (when you don’t know which products to use).

How did family and friends react to your decision to go natural? What was your response to them?   
They all loved it.  I’m a free spirit and natural fits my personality to the tee.  And now that I’m in the public eye…the “wild and free” is PERFECT!!!
