Natural Blog: Natural Notts

5 Sep

Natural Notts was born out of the need and necessity of black women, who grew up without the complete knowledge of their ancestor’s hair and skin care.

Perhaps like mine, your parents were exposed to a wealth of traditional information, on personal maintenance, but failed to share vital parts of it with you, due to their negative stereotypes on hair type, skin colour, facial features, etc.  For example, black children with coarse hair or dark skin were generally considered, by blacks, as being less attractive than a black child with lighter skin and manageable hair.

Natural Notts main objectives are:

  • To render such negative stereotypes redundant
  • To revive and promote a level of consciousness amongst black women, regarding positive self-image, that can be passed onto the next generation of naturalites.
  • To provide a current and traditional perspective on natural hair and skin care with a view of ensuring the survival of these techniques within our families.

If you want to be kept in the know about our natural products, beauty tips and discussions, subscribe to Natural Notts and become a valued member of our thriving community.  (Our hair and skin care range are currently in production. All our products are made from pure natural goodness.)

Meet Robbin of Napfrocurlzgirl

Robbin's Wash and Go

You may remember Robbin from a previous post, Favorite Natural Hairstyles:HERE . Now, find out more about her hair and her new blog.

My blog, still a baby, is Napfrocurlzgirl. It focuses on my natural hair journey as I try to work with my natural tresses in lieu of the hot comb and curling iron. I also will feature my homemade hair concoctions, images of my hair style attempts and favorite natural hair styles, and what I’m up to during my hair journey.

 I started a blog because I’ve always hated taking pictures, but wanted a way to track my hair progression. And, I wanted a hair blog because I don’t see too much information for women with my kind of hair. I’m still not sure what type it is, but I have three different textures in my head so all of the styling tips, products, etc. don’t always work quite the same for me. I’m hoping this helps other women with similar issues.

Great Blog:Nappy Style

19 Aug

I asked the creator of Nappy Style to share her motivation for creating her blog. She writes:

I began doing the blog because I wanted to created a place where natural hair women could go and check other people’s blogs for all things related to natural hair. It has evolved into other things such as showcasing natural hair women who just so happened to be writers. I’m also interested in promoting style and great throwback pictures that influence our styles now.

I love that this site has such a variety of posts and awesome features.  Visit the site:HERE
