Without a doubt, the natural hair movement is still going strong and spreading all over the world.

On Saturday May 14, 2016, naturalista and boutique owner Allison Owens held the first natural hair workshop in Adelaide South Australia.

While natural hair workshops and meetups have become commonplace in America, such events are unheard of in Australia.

The workshop, “No More Dry Hair: the LOC & LCO Methods” was held at Sassy Kinks & Coils Boutique, the first natural hair store in South Australia.

Surrounded by American made natural hair products such as Sheamoisture, Jessicurl, Cantu and Tgin, Allison discussed the steps of the LOC & LCO methods and demonstrated how to apply the techniques.

21 Photos That Prove "The Shrinkage Is REAL!"

Please click the Facebook SHARE BUTTON on the upper-left to share BlackHairOMG with friends, it helps us keep writing free info!

"The shrinkage is real!"

How many times have you heard that? Probably a lot.

Why? Because so many of us are self-conscious about our hair length and want to grow it longer so that everyone can clearly see it.

But it's time to embrace your curls and love the MAGIC that you have happening on top of your head.

One of the biggest reasons women with curly & kinky hair have a problem with shrinkage is because so many people outside of black culture or natural hair culture have NO IDEA that you are blessed with so much hair. They think that if your kinky/curl hair is sitting at 7 inches, you only have 7 inches of hair.

Well... NO.

That is how life is for women with straight hair, but many curly-haired naturals that have hair sitting at 7 inches in front of the naked eye could EASILY be flaunting 14-20+ inches of lusciousness.

So BlackHairOMG wants to make sure that more and more people realize this phenomenon on natural black hair.

We have pulled together this amazing PHOTO GALLERY of some of the DOPEST shrinkage comparison pics that you'll ever see.

Don't ever let yourself think that your hair isn't growing because the length is hidden in the curls and kinks, your hair grows like crazy when you treat it right.

So do you know someone that freaks out about having "short hair" when they go natural? Or do you know someone that has absolutely no clue about how much hair is actually contained in these beautifully coiled crowns of beauty?

If so, make sure you share these photos on your social media accounts and tag your friends so that they can recognize the majestic beauty contained in natural hair.

Natural Hair Products That Gave Regal Fro THE BOMB Hair!

After you watch the video, you'll probably be checking for some of the highlighted products, so here is the list. BUT, watch her vid, because we didn't include some of the actual hair tools that she like to use to this list. Anyway, here's her favorite natural hair products.

 

The only thing we didn't think was that great was the choice of flat iron. The Remington flat iron is a flat iron for people who have never used a top-tier flat iron and are looking for something cheap. Nothing wrong with that, it cost so little money that you really can't complain. But if you are looking for much better flat ironing and curling results, it may be wise to invest in a hair tool that  is made for ultimate performance and that will last for a long time.

The L.O.C. Method Explained - Amazingly Moisturizing!!!

Please click the Facebook SHARE BUTTON on the upper-left to share BlackHairOMG with friends, it helps us keep writing free info!

 
The L.O.C. Method has been around for a while and for very good reason.

If your natural hair sucks up everything you use to moisturize it and still cries out for more moisture, then it's probably time to test out what so many other naturals SWEAR BY, the L.O.C Method.

The L.O.C. Method has been a hot topic around the web and natural hair community for the longest now because it helps so many natural-haired women go days without having to CONSTANTLY re-moisturize their luscious locks.

L.O.C. is an abbreviation for leave-in conditioner, oil and cream. The name itself tells us naturals the types of hair products we should apply as well as the order to use them.

What makes the L.O.C. Method different from so many other moisturizing methods is the layering of products in a specific order to maximize moisture retention in your natural hair. The layer of hair-healin

Have You Tried The L.O.C Method?
Have You Tried The L.O.C Method?

g moisture is systematically locked in by two products which are both known to be excellent sealants: oil and hair butter.

Both oil and hairs butters are universally adored for their ability to create a moisture layer along your hair shaft that helps to prevent water from dissipating, in effect, helping the hair stay healthily moisturized for much longer.

By using oil first and then a heavier and thicker butter on top, you're making absolutely sure that as much moisture as possible remains on the hair shaft which is very beneficial for natural hair honeys who struggle to keep the needed moisture in their hair.

The method is so easy to blend into your routine because it involves some of the best-selling natural hair products on the market, products you probably already own,  so you just need to switch the order in which you apply them to your lusciousness. You'll be looking like a natural hair model in no time!

If you want to start using the L.O.C. Method then simply follow these easy steps below:

Directions

1. Apply a moisturizing water-based leave-in conditioner to cleansed hair.
2. Apply a thin layer of oil to your hair to help lock in the moisture.
3. Apply a butter-based, creamy moisturizer to your hair to seal that moisture in.

After that feel free to use your normal hair styling products to style your hair as normal.

Porosity

The L.O.C. Method will work best for Type 4 naturals because our hair is commonly very thirsty for moisture. BUT, also keep in mind that your hair porosity level will also determine whether the L.O.C. Method works for you or not.

If your hair is normal to high porosity then you should have no problem with layering products on your hair. However, if you have low porosity hair and try this method you risk of getting limp and oily hair that could be susceptible to a lot of product build up. Lastly, if you’re not a Type 4 natural but still struggle with moisture retention then give the L.O.C. Method a try – so many natural swear by it!

Alternatives

As with all things curly hair related it’s all about trial and error so if your current routine isn’t quite cutting it then give this method a try and modify it to suit your needs.

If your curls are easily weighed down, or if you suffer from product build up you can limit the number of products you apply to your hair by applying a creamy or buttery product as your styler.

Make sure you try it out for at least 2 weeks or three wash sessions before deciding if it works for your hair or not.

Wash and Go! Kinky Curly Curling Custard + Diffuser

Please click the Facebook SHARE BUTTON on the upper-left to share BlackHairOMG with friends, it helps us keep writing free info!

Check out Ally's video demonstrating a cute Wash and Go using Kinky Curly Curling Custard and a diffuser.

She uses a unique blow dryer attachment called a diffuser that is used to spread the airflow across a large section of her natural hair.

It is mainly used for curly hair, because the air flow does not cause frizz or interfere with the curl pattern. A diffuser works well for wash and go hairstyles, as you can imagine many natural ladies don’t enjoy leaving the house with their soaking wet hair. Nobody is trying to go out and get sick just for trying to be cute! Haa...

And for most women when they wear a wash and go completely air drying is not an option, many times natural hair can and will take 24 hours or more to dry.

Try waking up with your hair matted to your head, because it was still wet from the day before and tell me how much you like it. I guarantee that it's absolutely no fun.

Check out her natural hairstyles video below as she breaks down her technique for you tutorial style. But before you do that do myself and yourself a big favor right now....

How to Wear the Puff Cuff on Thick or Fine Natural Hair

 

How many hair clamps has your curly hair broken? Well, no more! Finally, there’s a hair clamp that can handle the challenge of thick, textured hair. Meet the Puff Cuff, a “remix” of the banana clip, uniquely designed to hold and style even the thickest of thick hair!

The Puff Cuff’s unique teeth are designed to lock into the texture or curl of your hair and hold the clamp in place, NOT to glide through the hair like a comb or banana clip. While the concept may be similar to the old "banana clip,” the Puff Cuff functions differently by working with your hair instead of against it.
