Painful Afro Puffs? 6 Tips to Lessen the Pain on Your Head


by Toia B of LuvToBNatural.com

Ok… let’s talk headbands, puffs and such.

Have you seen this meme floating around on the socials?


Ladies, while that meme is hilarious (and truthful!), we’ve got to stop this! Yes, we women love to joke about the cost of beauty and the things we put ourselves through to look good, but headbands don’t come with a bottle of aspirin, nor should they. Believe it or not, you CAN achieve a cute puff without having to rock back and forth repeating “beauty is pain… beauty is pain…!” for some solace. This is a dangerous but definitely avoidable situation.

Autumn Care for Your Natural Hair!

by Toia B of Luvtobnatural

FALL IS HERE Y’ALL!

Temps are dropping and humidity wanes with each day. Due to these and other factors, many of us find it necessary to switch up our regimen a bit so our hair plays nice with whatever the weather may bring.

Here are just a few things you can try this Fall to make the best of the crisp, cool air that comes with the season:

Use Heavier Oils/Butters

When I first began wearing my hair in its natural state, I thought using the same oils and things all-year-round would be fine. However, the lighter oils that I used in the summer (grapeseed, sweet almond, jojoba) to seal in moisture didn’t quite cut it in the cooler months.

Hair Tip Tuesday: Don't Weave It and Forget It!


by Toia B. of LuvTobNatural.com

I understand… sometimes our hair needs a break or we may want to make life a bit easier by installing a weave. Thing is, while they can be cute, some of us forget that we actually have hair under there! O_O Some women (and I know this for a fact!) feel that once they slap that puppy on, they can just get up and go for months on end without giving any attention to the hair growing out of their scalp. No bueno, kids!

You MUST take care of your OWN hair, even especially when you were weaves and wigs. That closed-in environment can become a hotbed for bacteria and fungus! Leaving your hair to its own devices can lead to buildup of excessive dandruff and more serious issues like hair loss and infections.

PLEASE, regularly cleanse, condition and moisturize your hair and scalp.

But some may wonder…
