Qhemet Amla and Olive Heavy Cream

By Curly Nikki 7 Comments

Get it here. I think Suburbanbushbabe said it best when she described Qhemet’s Amla and Olive Heavy Cream as ‘rain in a jar’. It was her rave reviews and Teshon’s on naturallycurly.com that prompted me to try it (among other products, lol). Like Teshon, I’m a fine haired, protein sensitive curly. I need heavy moisture to maintain health and retain…

Seasonal Shedding

By Curly Nikki 2 Comments

It’s that time of year again…I’m definitely SHEDDING. It can be very scary at times, especially when you consider that I only do my hair twice a week (sometimes 3). Lately, my hair ball could be mistaken for a small animal…not a good look. I did a little research on seasonal hair shedding. I wanted to know if it’s a…

It’s Getting Cold…Moisturize Your Situation!

By Curly Nikki No Comments

Kinky/Curly hair is prone to dryness. It’s a fact of life… It’s getting cool (unfortunately) and I don’t know about you, but my hair is definitely drying out MUCH quicker. Between the dry heat blasting out of the vents in my house and car, and the cooler winds whipping about, my hair needs special attention. So let’s be proactive ladies!…

Natural Hair Bunning…

By Curly Nikki One Comment

I’m not much of a ‘protective styler’ (placing the hair in styles that protects the ends from wear and tear)…I feel less glam when I’m in buns, twists, french braids, etc. I like my hair BIGGG and WILD at all times 😀 But, sometimes, I’ll rock this bun if I’m feeling too lazy to twist-n-curl. I still feel glam…since it’s…
