    what is a good detangler for natural hair?

    • ~L November 15, 2010 at 12:56 am #

      I asked, and here were a few responses that I got:
      Kinky Curly Knot Today (most highly recommended)
      Oyin Honey Hemp Conditioner
      Any conditioner
      Carol’s Daughter
      Just for Me 2 in 1 Kids Shampoo and Conditioner

      I use whatever conditioner I am using which is usually Hello Hydration or Yes to Cucumbers/Carrots.

      • Toya February 8, 2011 at 2:20 am #

        Do you think it’s a good idea to mix vegetable glycerin with raw shea butter?

    Id like to see where to buy each product(on the list) when I click on it.

    • ~L January 4, 2011 at 2:02 am #

      I’ll think about that for next year’s Natural Hair Report Card.

  8. LaWanda January 30, 2011 at 5:14 pm #

    I’ve been natural for about 4 years. I am about to starting swimming regularly. I have course, tightly coiled hair. Do you have any suggestions on Shampoos, Conditioners, and other products that may help my hair survive the constant exposure to Chlorine and other pool additives?

    • ~L January 30, 2011 at 5:22 pm #

      I pre wet my hair and cover it in conditioner before I go swimming. I shampoo and condition afterwards. I also deep condition more regularly if I am going into the chlorine.

      • LaWanda January 30, 2011 at 6:05 pm #

        Thank you. Any suggestions on conditioners, or will any one do? I might swim every other day.

  9. ~L January 31, 2011 at 11:01 am #

    Lawanda, any conditioner that already works well for you.

    Do you know of any place in the Atlanta area that sells hair accessories? Headbands, combs, pins, etc? Thanks!! Maya

  11. maya February 5, 2011 at 6:55 pm #

    BTW, I am referring places geared toward natural haircare. Artisan or handmade stuff. Not a Claire’s, Sally’s, etc.

    I’ve been reading that glycerin is good to help retain moisture, do you know if it’s a good idea to mix it with raw shea butter. I’ve been thinking about making my own moisturizer with shea butter, a few oils and glycerin…any ideas or information would be greatly appreciated.

    • ~L February 8, 2011 at 12:02 pm #

      I’ve never mix the two, but that is worth trying. However, I would recommend using that mix in the warmer months. I read that it is important that water is involved in the mix when you are using glycerin in the winter.

      • Toya February 10, 2011 at 3:01 am #

        Ok Thanks alot!

    Hello!! After a year of being natural i am a little tired of home made shampoo and shopping around for a good shampoo. Do you have any suggestions on natural shampoos?? I’ve tried Carols daughter the rosemary shampoo but it didnt get my hair as clean as my lemon juice baking soda mixture. Any suggestions??

  15. Jenelle Speller February 10, 2011 at 9:28 pm #

    I work out everyday and I sweat a lot!! Should I wash the sweat out of my hair by doing a co-wash in the middle of the week or should I still stick to wash once a week??

    Thank you for your advice!

    • ~L February 11, 2011 at 1:19 pm #

      There are a few options. You could do the mid-week cowash like you suggested. I sometimes just do a water wash if I want my hair fresher in between regular washes. Also, you can look into a no-lather shampoo to cleanse your scalp in between. Organic Root Stimulator makes one called “Herbal Cleanse”.

    I have been going natural for a year now, well a year in May and I am so apprehensive when it comes to which products to use because a lot of them are kind of expensive. Do you have any suggestions? I have heard that Aveda, Pantene, Treseme, and Mizani are pretty good. What do you think? I want my hair to have a curly texture without looking dry and dull or too nappy. Thank you! I really need help!!

    • ~L February 20, 2011 at 5:11 pm #

      I haven’t tried Aveda, Mizano, or Tresemme. I have used Pantene Relaxed and Natural before, it was okay.

        Okay thank you and another question I have is: I love getting straw sets, they are amazing! But my hair begins to itch so bad and I never know what products to put on it so that my hair will stop itching and I can keep my set in longer. Any suggestions on anti-itch products?(I get the straw sets done at a salon, so it would have to be a product I could put on my hair while the straw set is already done on my hair)

    I believe i have 4b/4c hair. And I was jus wondering, is it suppose to feel like a brisol pad when it’s not wet. I moisturize it daily especially during the summer with this cali heat, but maybe i’m not doing it enough.

  21. Jelecia June 20, 2011 at 4:41 pm #

    Hi! I did the BC not too long ago. About 7 months to be exact. My hair is around 4A/4B and it is very thick. I am having difficulty retaining moisture because I can’t find the right kind of deep moisturizer. Do you have any suggestions as to what kind of moisturizer I should use or make because I’m lost, honestly.

    • ~L July 14, 2011 at 10:14 am #

      Check out the Natural Hair Report Card posts. One specifically focuses on moisture aids.

    • ayaricosmetics July 14, 2011 at 11:03 am #

    • ~L July 14, 2011 at 10:12 am #

      Yes. I was just thinking the same thing. LI just posted one today.

    At work the other day ..some black women starting taunting me about my natural hair. Saying things like I need to get a perm. I felt horrible not because I am ashamed of my hair but because as black women they felt that their perms and weaves made them superior. I was embarrassed for them.
