So, I know that I am not the only person that needs help with hair care and styling ideas half of the time.
And with all the encouragement I am loving it!
She is very easy going and clear with her instructions, which keeps my attention.
Sometimes she can be loquacious, but thats what the Fastforward button is for.
FYI- She also has videos on beauty, product reviews, make up, etc.
2. Taren Guy–
If I didnt put NaturallyNellzy as Number 1. Ms.Guy would definitely be first.
I discovered Ms.Guy when I first started transitioning! I watched her Original Bantu Knot Out Tutorial, This was the exact same technique I used when I would bantu knot my hair during my transitioning phase. (Check Out The Transitioning Section of the blog).
Ms.Guy has an amazing attitude toward her watchers, her life, and she’s an awesome encourager/motivator.
Transitioning is not the easiest and she helped ease some of my anxieties about joining the natural hair community and now that I am natural I love her positive attitude which helps me continue to LOVE my natural hair!
She has a variety of content that she Vlogs about, beauty, natural hair, wigs, campaigns, healthy, etc.
Videos from Taren worth checking out:
3. MyNaturalSistas– An Amazing Natural Hair Trio
I discovered these ladies right after I big chopped and I was searching Youtube for some encouragement. Everyone I found spoke so positively about the BC, but noone was as real as Toni’s Big Chop 1&2. I loved her transparency about cutting her hair and I’ve been an active viewer ever since.
I just love the unity and postive vibes amongst the three of them as sisters, and its something that I admire
These are two of the videos that I think you should check out:
I placed this young lady first because she was THE ABSOLUTE BIGGEST encouragement when I first BC’d. I emailed her immediately and asked for words of encouragement and she responded back promptly giving me the best words that allowed me to pick my head up and ROCK my natural curls!
During the transition to natural hair i gained great knowledge about how to care and maintain natural hair and even style, but once I cut my hair it was like I completely forgot.Lol.Smh
NaturalHairJunkies gave me advice about different regimens and ways to keep my hair moisturized.
Which was beyond helpful.
I was also featured on her IG which definitely boosted my confidence due to the compliments I got from complete strangers!
2. Natural Hair Daily
If you’re getting bored with your current natural hair regimen or your basic go to style, this IG will give you amazingly unique ideas that will spark some fascinating creativity that you never knew you had.
Natural Hair Daily repost every day IG users that tag their photos #naturalhairdaily and this IG account will post their favorite natural hair hairstyles and I must say these are some of the best repost I’ve ever seen. lol.
3. Natural Hair Does Care
This IG account is similar to Natural Hair Daily. As these two sisters call it, they spread amazing “hairspiration” and knowledge about natural hair, which is very helpful to all naturals. Check them out, and possibly follow their account. It’s awesome positivity to have on you IG timeline 🙂
As I was transitioning my homegirl told me about this blog and this blog allowed me to see how supportive the natural hair community is. Witnessing this amount of positive support amongst woman who absolutely did not know each other, just simply based off of one commonality, that they either had natural hair or were transitioning to it— was a huge encouragement for me to go back to having natural hair!
That encouragement would push me to continue my transition even further. The transitioning process can be VERY discouraging, but its totally worth it.
This website has a variety of forum discussions ranging from newly naturals, to health, to naturals ages 40+, to DIY’s, to things for parents with natural hair, to things about henna and coloring treatments.
I encourage you to check out this website and possibly download the app on your smartphone.
Diversity! Not only African American Curlies! But White Curlies Too!
Which I LOVE!!! This site caters to all curls which I admire.
The website was my second home while I was transitioning.
This site helped me figure out my curl pattern and I was also able to view reviews on hair products.
One of the cutest things about this website is that the reviews are ranked in curls 🙂
Individuals then give things such as their hair texture, the porosity, and density and all of this is on the website…. this helps people figure out if their is a correlation between hair texture/type and certain product ingredients.
This opinion varies. Some don’t think their is a relation between the two, but its something that I haven’t taken into consideration as of yet because my products have been doing well for my hair 🙂
Along with all of the hair type info, people also give their personal reviews, which I LOVE.
The Raw Honest Truth from real users with different hair types.
This site has a plethora of information from hair types, to hair textures, to lifestyles, to salons, to products, and styles.
It definitely worth checking out!
3. BlackGirls With LongHair
Last but not least, Black Girls With Long Hair Blog
I was not attracted to this site immediately because— well look at the name of the blog!— Even though I am Black, long hair is something I do not have 🙂
After browsing the site and being led to this site because of google I realized that a lot of the advice that was given on this blog I could use such as:
And this one I came across today
5 Quick Styles for short to medium hair
What I love most of all about this site is that their features are from everyday people,
Their features go beyond hair, they speak on style of dress, hair care, and they also have a section where they sort out style icons by hair texture!
