During my pregnancy, my hair grew a lot mainly because of the hormones. What I was eating also contributed of course. However, do you know what happened 3 months after I gave birth? Hair loss! I experienced postpartum hair loss. I had a protective style towards the end of my pregnancy so I did not think the hair loss would be how it was. Yet, I was surprised by how much hair I lost. I knew I would lose hair as I had been doing my research but…my goodness.

As soon as I noticed this, I reached out to a few hairstylists I knew. One of my really good friends, Tanacia O. of Kinky Kurls, LLC [IG: Kinky Kurls ; website- https://www.kinkykurls7.com/] referred me to a black and woman-owned business called crownedjewelsatl. She had great success with the products she purchased from the company. Once she told me about it, I had to give it a shot! When I started using it, I noticed that the hair loss decreased over two weeks. So what did I do? I continued to use it! Since then, I have been using the products! It has been about 7 months and the products are so amazing! My three go-to products are Rosewater, WAP butter, and Mother Earth Oil. I use these three hair products twice a day [ morning and evening ]

There you have it! These are three hair products that I have been using every day since March 2021. Furthermore, I use the products in the order I have them listed since the LCO ( leave-in/liquid, cream, oil ) method works best for my hair!

I even got my hair cut in June 2021 and the products have still helped to promote hair growth! My hair used to be very dry. Now, my hair is very moisturized and doesn’t get dry 🙂 Anyway, which of these products will you be trying? Let me know below!

As much as I love my hair [ currently sporting a TWA or teeny weeny afro] sometimes, I want to just give my hair a break. To be honest, I look through a couple of my Pinterest boards for a couple of hours over a two-week span. Why? I need to figure out what protective hairstyle I want. This mainly happens when I see that my hairstylists’ calendars are booking…quickly! All the hairstyles I come across are so beautiful that at times, I have a bit of a struggle picking the one I want to wear for 6-8 weeks. Besides, I am sure I am not the only one who goes through this!

Anyway, here are 15 beautiful protective hairstyles you can try any time of the year:

 

1. Boho crochet twists

As much as I love wearing my hair down and sometimes half up-half down, sometimes I want to just put it up in a cute updo!

Not only is it beautiful, but it’s also time-saving. So if you don’t want to deal with your hair before work or school, just put it in a chic updo and make a dash!

Below you will find 8 of the cutest and easiest natural hair updos for black women.

 

1. Hair bun with metal gold cuffs

This is very cute if you want to add a little “umph” to the look but still keep it simple. Great for the office  or school (if you have to work in person or do in-person schooling)

 

 

2. Braided edgy updo

This is definitely an edgy look. Feeling experimental? Try it out!

 

3. Updo with a scarf

Add a little flair to your hair by adding a hair scarf. Leave some hair on your face too!

 

4.  High puff with bangs

Don’t feel like wearing a scarf or don’t have a scarf right on hand? Not to worry. This is an awesome look as well, especially for a brunch or date night!

5. High puff

This is the updo to go for if you just rolled out of bed and don’t know what to do with your hair or don’t want any hair on your neck. You will still be pretty!

 

 

These are so simple and stylish! Get creative 🙂 I usually go for the 1st and last one but will try the others when my hair is big enough 🙂 Can’t wait to find out which one you will be trying out!

 

As always, if you enjoyed reading this post, here’s another awesome one to check out 

 

Have a great day!

Sometimes we can be unsure of what color to try or if we should even experiment with colors on our natural hair. I used to be like that until I saw so many beautiful black women with lovely colors. This is when I said, ” I want to play with some color, too!” Once I did that, I was so amazed at how pretty the color looked on me!

Below you will find that we can indeed have beautiful, colorful, and healthy hair. These are four beautiful colors to play with this fall

 

1. Red

  • Do you want to have a pop of color? Go with red. It brings warmth to your hair!

2. Brown

  • If you want to keep it simple but add a little spice to your hair, brown is the color you want to go with.

Curls are so beautiful. I wish I loved them sooner. In fact, it wasn’t until maybe about 7 years ago that I fell in love with curls. In fact, I thought it was just so much work and would seldom get that style unless I went to the hairstylist or got a sew-in ( I don’t get those anymore).

 

However, as I was starting to really love who I was and embrace my beauty, I started to enjoy the curls! Whether they are big, small, or even coily, they are absolutely gorgeous. Most of the time when I get a hairstyle, there is some sort of curl. Crochet twist-outs, Bantu knot outs, twist-outs, and braid-outs are just a few of my favorite curly hairstyles. The bounce. The versatility. The volume?? I love it all!
