Need a New Protective Style to Wear This Spring? Try Havana Twists

Have you added Havana twists to your list of spring hair inspiration yet? Because if you haven't already, you probably should.

Here's How You Should Care For Your Hair If It's 2 Different Textures

Having textured hair is a journey all on its own, but it's a completely different ball game if you're a person whose hair is multitextured. What is that, exactly? Multitextured hair is just hair that isn't all one curl pattern, so instead of having just curly hair, you might have wavy curls at the front of your head with a tighter pattern in the back. Complex as it sounds, it's actually pretty common, and even though caring for multiple textures sounds like it'd be a bit frustrating, there's a ...

7 Hair Products That'll Give You the Best Wash and Go of Your Life

No one said perfecting a wash and go was easy, but boy, is it a satisfying feeling once you do. The thing about wash and gos is that, while they're one of the most popular styling methods in the natural-hair community, they can sometimes be a little tricky to pull off. That's because, contrary to what the name suggests, there's a lot more to it than just . . . well, washing and going. For most of us, wearing a wash and go doesn't mean submerging your hair in water and wearing your freshly washe...

Protective styles come in lots of different forms, but not too many styles give me heart eyes quite like faux dreadlocks.

Don't Know the Difference Between Protein Treatments and Deep Conditioners? Read This

When it comes to maintaining and hydrating your hair, you're likely often advised that the main products you should be regularly using are protein treatments and deep conditioners.

The Best Products For Natural Hair, According to a Pro

From Frohawks to Braided Buns, Let These Natural-Hair Updos Inspire Your Next Hairstyle

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the beauty of natural hair lies in its versatility and the fact that a lot of naturals can achieve just about any style they desire. For example, I love a big hair moment just as much as the next person, but there are still times - i.e. when the temperature rises or when we're just looking to protect our ends without committing to a braided protective style for a few weeks - when you can't go wrong with throwing your hair into an updo. Natural updos are...

Here's How to Properly Wash Your Hair When It's in a Protective Style

One of the many benefits of spending a few weeks wearing box braids or any other protective style is knowing that you get to take a bit of time off from manipulating your natural hair for a change. Your getting-ready routine gets slightly shorter, your hair is essentially being shielded from breakage and possible heat damage, and most importantly, you get to switch up your look. But low maintenance doesn't mean "no maintenance," and since your hair and scalp can still suffer from product buildup...

Imagine If Your Hair Determined If You Could Walk at Graduation

Imagine if how you wore your hair determined whether or not you could walk with your classmates at your graduation.

Should You Be Rinsing Your Hair With Apple Cider Vinegar? (For Most, the Answer Is Yes)

As someone who can only wash her hair once a week, I know all too well that sometimes I need a little more than shampoo to get rid of the grease and product buildup on my scalp. To add to that, my hair also has a bit of a dryness problem thanks to my highly porous strands that sometimes make it impossible for moisture to retain itself. Thankfully, I've spent the past few months listening to my hair needs and trying to figure out what kinds of products it benefits from the most, one of which is ...

Figuring out your hair is a process, but one thing that'll never change is your hair's consistent need for moisture. There are a handful of ways you can go about making sure it is drinking up and retaining as much moisture as possible, though not all products are created equal.

16 Photos of Twist-Out Hairstyles That Are So Perfect, It Isn't Even Fair

I have a love-hate relationship with twist-outs, a common natural-hair-styling method achieved by installing several twists throughout a head of damp natural hair and allowing them to set or dry for several hours. Ideally, the end result is a head full of defined curls that can be worn for a few days at a time - the key word here being ideally, since the style isn't always easy to nail. For some people, a common struggle with twist-outs is getting the desired curl definition, while others tend t...
