Tangles November 30, 2011

Tangles. My natural ladies definitely know something about these knots. Thirty minutes after I detangle my hair my coils are sure to find themselves twisted upon another. That’s just how it works. There’s really no way to be tangle free. But there are some tips on how to reduce the amount of tangles you do have.

Tangles

Tips

#1- When washing your hair it’s best for you to wash it in sections. You can do this by simply putting your hair in about 4 to 6 braids or twist. Then detangle each section with a wide tooth comb or detangler. Detangle when conditioner is applied. This makes it easier for you to get rid of all those knots.

#2- Keep your hair moisturized always. Keeping your hair moisturized will prevent breakage, brittle hair, and also the amount of tangles you have.

#3-Try not to detangle your hair dry. However if you must detangle your hair dry be sure to use a moisturizer or sebum to prevent breakage.

#4- Don’t play in your hair. I have that problem. I love to twist my fingers in my hair and I ALWAYS run across a tangle. Then I end up trying to undo the tangle which leads to me pulling out my hair. Which is totally unnecessary because the hair knotted is most likely dead hair that I can easily take out when I detangle my hair during a wash easily. Just don’t do it!

#5-Twist outs and Braid outs will also minimize the amount of tangles your hair will have because your hair is stretched out. The more your hair is stretched the less tangles you have.

#6- Wear protective styles. Wearing protective styles like braids twist even a faux bun will leave you out of your hair and will also prevent tangles because it keeps the hair in its place.

# 7- Try to not to worry about your  tangles, but make sure you detangle your hair often enough so that it will too get matted. Nobody wants that.

 

 

What guys want. November 29, 2011

What guys want.   

Worried your guy or won’t be feelin’ your natural kinks, twist, or curls? My former guy told me he doesn’t prefer the fro on me but that didn’t stop me from rocking it! I mean really ladies stop trying to please these guys and please yourself. Men love a confident woman and I’m most confident when I rock a big fluffy fro. That’s just me. I’m sure you have heard “I  think natural hair is unique, but my preference is straight hair.” That’s cool..  Another guy told me to never to straighten my hair. Some guys like the natural look and some guys  like the straight hair. It’s all beautiful to me. The right one won’t care how your hair is so do whatever makes you feel Micheal Jackson bad.

Whether they like it…

 

Or not.

Embrace you,

Miss Malone

 

 

Healthy you, Healthy hair.

Living a healthy life style leads to healthy hair. Of course retaining moisture, trimming split ends, and using protective styles play a major role in having healthy hair but exercising, eating right, and maintaining a low stress level is also a big factor in having that healthy hair. Plus, you will feel more energized to flaunt that beautiful hair!
THE DO’s and DON’T
  • Don’t smoke. Smoking causes hair to become brittle and fall out. The gases and chemicals from the smoke that are being carried in your cells ultimately take away the oxygen and nutrients needed for your hair to grow healthy. Giving up smoking will actually reverse all the side effects and recover your hair.
  • Don’t excessively consume alcohol. Alcohol abuse leads to poor nutritional habits. This plays a role in hair loss because these bad habits leads to the lack in minerals you need for your hair to grow. It’s okay to have a little to drink. Have fun! The key is not to abuse the substance.
  • Don’t stress. Just chillll… stress just drains nutrients from your body your hair needs!
  • Do eat up. Foods like eggs, beef, brown rice and salmon are great for acquiring healthy hair. These foods maintain a good source of protein, calcium, and carbohydrates that will give you energy through out the entire day.
  • Do stay hydrated. Your body must stay hydrated in order to work sufficiently. 8 cups of water a day would be the best, however any liquid would do good as well. This all works out to produce a healthier you and healthier hair.
  • Do take your vitamins. Vitamin A, E, and C are great for growing healthy hair. Vitamin A helps maintain moisture, Vitamin E circulates blood flow to the scalp, and Vitamin C prevents the loss of hair.
  • Do massage your scalp. Massaging your scalp brings blood flow to your scalp helping you grow healthy hair. A healthy scalp equals healthy hair!
  • Do exercise. Exercise reduces stress which is a hazardous factor in hair loss. So get fit and gorgeous hair.

Embrace your health

Do I have to do the BIG CHOP? (transitioning)

Ladies don’t be skeptical about going natural just because you think you have to chop all of your hair off. There are other ways to transition other than the big chop. Once you stop getting relaxers and your natural hair starts to grow in your relaxed hair will most likely break off in the process, especially if you have a 4 A, B, or C hair type. The best way to transition is by using PROTECTIVE styles. Protective styles consist of  braids, twist, and even weaves. These styles are also great ways to grow your hair strong and healthy because contains the moisture your hair needs.

                                                                 Solange Rocks Moesha braids. Gotta Love it!  

HOW I TRANSTIONED

Microbraids were my best friend!

 Pounds and Pounds of Weave!

                     Me and my bestie! Same weave just after wetted. (BOHYME Brazillian wave) Try to get a weave that some what

matches your your hair type.

I know scary, half relaxer half natural.

Me and my dad. Cut all off when the first day I came to Howard.

The REAL HU!

LOOK AT ME NOW!

So there you go! You don’t have to do the big shop to go natural braid, twist, weave it up until your ready to let loose! Honestly I wish I would have done the big chop and wore my curls short and cute. Don’t cancel the Big Chop out. Embrace your natural!
