 By Bri of Brirosecurly.com

There are four major steps to diffuse natural hair flawlessly and efficiently every time. Let’s start with what a diffuser actually is. A diffuser is an attachment added to your blow dryer. Normally this attachment is circular or bowl shaped, with tips. With the diffuser being circular, the heat covers more head space, adds volume, and preserves curls that are normally achieved the second day. Like any tool that uses heat, there are steps so that damage does not occur.

The RIGHT Tools and Products for Natural Hair Blow Outs


by Shelli of Hairscapades

I was a busy little bee this weekend, hitting three different stores (one twice), in order to get the items I needed for my impending blow-out. I made the appointment for my Afro puffy twists for this week and I was finally faced with the fact that I needed to make some decisions about my hair prep. I read CurlyNikki’s post on Flat Ironing Tips and recognized the importance of the right products, good techniques and the proper tools. I’d been ruminating over what heat protectant to use and whether I would use a blow dryer, use a comb attachment, try the tension method, braid, twist or attempt a roller set to stretch … decisions, decisions!

A New Way to Blow Dry 4c Natural Hair!

#Genius 

Nappy Fu writes:

"Sometimes a Natural likes to rock straight styles, better yet, semi straight styles. However, if your natural hair is kinky and coily this can be a challenge. Have you ever done a blow-out in which your hair looks like you didn’t just spend two hours blow drying section by section? Yes honey, been there done that. This was my experience each year I did my 'End of the Year Blow Out'. To make matters worse my hair would feel brittle and dry! Horrible combination for my type 4c hair. Who has time for this? Not I, and I knew I had to do something about it. I had to figure out how to blow dry kinky hair while maintaining softness and movement in my hair."


Nappy Fu told me that she had relied on the Comb Method in the past, and that the high heat and excessive combing wasn't letting her be great.  After some rather intense Youtube research, she came across a new method which-

• leaves hair semi straight
• reduces damage to cuticle layer
• reduces moisture loss
• avoids tangled ends
• does not involve combing or brushing through each section while blow drying
• gives volume and no frizz (or minimal frizz)
• leaves hair feeling soft and moisturized
• will allow hair to easily revert back

Heat Protection 101: Fry Eggs, Not Hair.



Fall is approaching and some curlies are ready to fry, dye, and lay those curls to the side, but this should be approached with caution. I know you want to use that edge control to get that swoop game tight this season, but there is a right way and a wrong way to do it! Some curlies are anti-straight but one thing is for sure, all curlies are pro “don't put me in a box” so let’s support one another’s choices. If you choose to take advantage of the cold weather for long-lasting straightened styles, then you should do so with the utmost care to protect your curls, coils, and waves. 

A Heat Styling Regimen for Natural Hair

*With cooler months approaching, I thought I'd repost for those that want to switch things up!*


by Alicia James of MsAliciaJames.com

When I found Youtube I decided that I would NEVER use heat on my natural hair. I developed this big fear of damage and a whole lot of other things. Once I became a little more comfortable with my hair and started to develop my own personal regimen, my opinion regarding the use of heat on my natural hair changed.

I did not start using heat in my natural hair journey until I turned two years natural. When I turned two years I did my first blow out. After blow drying my hair for the first time I found that I really enjoyed the stretch and the benefits I got from the stretched hair.
