tupacandglitter asked: Lol so I definitely just scrolled through your entire blog. You're AMAZING and I found myself saying OMG and YES to the majority of the problems and perks I read. I love your blog!
beautiful-ambition asked: You're amazing. I do need to find a good deep conditioner because I don't think what I'm using always conditions like I need it to. I do have the olive oil deep conditioner though. I don't use sulfates on my hair and I so use extra virgin olive oil. I'm using mostly Shea Moisture products at the moment, I used to only use raw shea butter but i ran out. Thank you for your...
Evolution Of A Queen: Natural Hair Help!! →
beautiful-ambition: I am still trying to figure out what works for my hair and I just recently revamped my entire skin and hair care collection to get rid of mineral oil and sulfates. However, my scalp and hair feel drier without all that heavy stuff and I’m frustrated. I do think I like… here are a few thoughts: are you deep conditioning well and regularly? the importance of a deep...

sedimentary-hurricanes asked: I don't have any satin scarves, can I use silk?
adorableblerd asked: What is (and would you recommend) training one's hair? I ask because I currently live in an environment where my choice of styles (e.g. frohawk) are seen by those I care about as "nappy and unkempt" because it isn't properly trained
Dear Bruno Mars,
so i’m all for people living their lives as they see fit. what works for one may not work for another, and if you like it, i love it. i use some stuff in my hair that people look down their nose at me at all the time. that being said… ..maybe we can suggest a few other products for Bruno to try? LOL.

Anonymous asked: I've been transitioning for about 7 months now, I think I'm a 4a/4b.I had a hairdresser who decided it would be smart to add color and straighten my hair almost every week. The color would leave my hair dry and rough so I decided to rock a sew in. I decided to get permed hair cut off so its very short. So I've been wearing sew ins to give my hair time to grow back. I'm thinking...
21h09-deactivated20121117 asked: Hi, what would be your advice to heal heat damage?
ollinomates asked: How often do you trim? I realised seek and destroys aren't the one cos I'm too f'ing lazy to remember to do it every time I see a split but after trimming one half today I feel like if I do this every month my hair will never get any longer, lol. Guessing it's probs a moisture issue too so I'll look into that, but still, how often? Love your blog, I thought you'd...

Perfect Locks clip-on bangs - review & giveaway!
so. i looooove bangs, right. but since i’m natural, it’s tough to keep and maintain them—they always look so cute when my hair is straight, but when i wear my hair curly, i look like a sheepdog, at best, and just plain weird at worst. so awhile ago i said to myself, ‘i wish they had some clip on bangs so i could just wear them when i wanted them.’ a quick google...
xoasmxo asked: Hi I have curly hair. Some of my hair are corkscrews and some are s shaped. My problem is my very frizzy. My hair had been knotted and matted for several years and just last year I got fed up and got out the big knots. My question is do you know of any good hair products that really maintain the frizz and specialize in curls. I've tried hair rules, but it didn't really maintain the...

Anonymous asked: Hello! My hair has been natural my entire life. I've never had it relaxed. I noticed over the last few years or so, it's started to grow in straight on the left side and it's still curly on the right side. Of-course, the left side grows longer/faster than the right side now too. This has happened to other women in my family also. Do you know what may cause this?
thiisismii asked: love it esp the natural hair problems/perks ! my sister and I always come up with random ones but anywho keep it going :)
