Myth #1 Being natural requires an entire day to wash hair
I think we have all heard this one before, " Being natural is too much work!". I know many naturals who dedicate hours to doing their hair on washday. Not because it is a grueling time consuming process, but more simply because we found a great tutorial by our favorite influencer and that cute rod set took longer than expected. Most times washday is a breeze when a healthy haircare regimen is perfected. Our Ultimate Collection Box is perfect for washdays because it takes the hassle out of finding the right products. The Ultimate Collection Box contains products for every part of your haircare regimen from co-washing with our Coconut Creme Conditioner to growing and taming edges with our Jamaican Black Castor Oil Edge Control.Read More

On Instagram, we asked naturalistas to tell us the reasons why they decided to celebrate their curls. In no specific order, here are the biggest three reasons our curlfriends mentioned.
@tnwapaMy hair was just falling apart...😔😔
@jaiologieMy hair was really long but had gotten so thin, it’s ridiculous. I went natural for more dense hair.
It is impossible to keep your hair straightened and healthy. Chemicals and heat will contribute to damaged follicles, dead ends, and breakages. And that’s not to mention extensions – if put in too tight they can actually lead to hair loss. Our Grow Thick Oil is not only great for growing hair, it helps thicken brittle, weak, and damaged hair.
It can be intimidating to trust the wash and go process to get the curls you dream about. The good news is that this technique is easy, you only need a few products, and literally anyone with curly hair can do it!
There are a few tips submitted from our Instagram followers setting yourself up for a successful wash and go:
- "Work with soaking wet hair" - @naturallyshundra Keep a spray bottle nearby in case it starts to dry out.
- "Don’t touch your hair! Touching it = frizz "-@tinytoya You want your hair to dry undisturbed otherwise you’re on the road to frizz town.
- "Great products are key. You can have a flawless application but if the products suck, your style will be terrible. Love your products ❤️" - @pjacksone You need good technique and good products to produce the results you want. We love our Grow Thick Oil and Moisturizing Mist as a base and Our Perfect Oils Curling Jelly to set the curls.
In addition to choosing the right products and doing this on wet hair, you want to make sure that you’re using a technique that is going to work for your unique hair texture. This might be a bit of a trial and error process, but there is a technique for every curl type from loose to kinky

Top 5 Hairstyles For Length Retention
Protective styling and length retention go hand in hand. Protective styling will help reduce damage and breakage throughout the length of your hair. While it might seem counterintuitive, the true way to promote length retention is not through supplements to encourage faster hair growth, but to actually protect your current hair against future damage. Protective styles are the key to growing long, healthy hair.
But what is a protective hairstyle? At its core, it’s about protecting the ends of your hair, reducing tangles and knots, and preventing damage before it happens. Ideally, a protective style for length retention will keep your ends covered, but detangled. Protective hairstyles that promote length retention will often come in the form of braids, twists or knots.
Our top five hairstyle picks for length retention are:
You probably don’t have to be told that the weather this time of year can rob moisture from your hair, leaving your kinky coils and curls dry and brittle.
