Our Main Choice of Comments That May Interest You
So while Kimberly had an issue with some of the products, other naturals who have tried it think it's the bomb! Hey, we're all different. Check out a couple comments about the NEW Main Choice Do it Fro The Culture line...
"Girl you know I loved that gel, but I completely understand why it wasn’t your favorite. It didn’t do the things you love in a gel-like super definition, but honey that’s why I loved it. No crunch, not drying at all...."
Da Lazy Natural says...
"This Main Choice Do it Fro The Culture line would be good for a friend of mine who prefers the big fluffy fro look over defined with a little crunch. I like my curls defined with some crunch because I know it's going to last all week. I'm not now nor have I ever been one to wash my hair every few days.
My wash days are every week to week and a half (depending on how good I'm being). So I need products that will give me both moisture and hold while keeping the frizz at bay!"
The comments are full under these videos too! The Mane Choice is stirring things up once again with their unique marketing, beautiful packaging and attempts to cover the needs of EVERY type of natural. Check out this last review from Shenelle Taylor...

Girl, let's be real... The perfect wash n go product for your natural hair can be hard to find! So for Nia to take more than a week to TEST, SHOW and PROVE her result on camera is a huge help.
I saw products that I'd never heard of and she hadn't heard of a couple of them herself before finding custards for her test. Seeing her show products that best bring out the natural clumping and pattern on her hair can save you and me money.
Nice Quick Wash N'Go Tips That Make a Difference In Your Results
One way that many of us totally mess up our wash n' go before it even gets to "go", is not having our hair wet enough (soaking wet) before adding product.
THIS...IS...CRITICAL Lovelies! Pay attention.
Wash n' go styling requires wet hair, so it's best to do it in the shower. Your hair need to be soaking wet, not just damp. Then let it dry afterwards, of course.
More Smart Tips For Your Wash n' Go Efforts
If you have very coily 4c hair that doesn't want to be defined, use your finger to work the curls.
If you put too much product on your hair, use a t-shirt to remove the excess, never use a towel to remove the excess, towels will promote breakage.

I don't think that's cheating at all, her fave should DEFINITELY be in the competition.
And even more proof that she was unbiased is that one of the OTHER competing products WON the contest, not because it performed better though, they both performed equally as good but the winning custard was HALF THE PRICE of her fave!
She Kept It Honest & Didn't Sugarcoat What She Didn't Like!
Girrrrrl, you know we like folks who tell it like it T.I.S. (Bernie Mac Voice, lol)
So when she had to spend a WHOLE DAY with a product that had her looking a mess, she said it. She said one product "absolutely sucked. If you want to cheat and see which one "sucked" before watching the vid, click HERE.
If I've told ya once, I've told you a MILLION TIMES...
Your health is a major factor for hair health and growth.
We're gonna talk about a powerful green juice that you can add to your hair growth regimen to get you long-lasting hair growth results. POW!
Look... If you've been suffering with hair loss or thinning, or maybe you have a scalp issue, it's inflamed and it's itchy...
You're definitely going to want to read this bad girl I wrote for you right hurrr honey. Yes, I said "right hurrr", now let's talk about your hurrr and how adding chlorophyll into your growth regimen can work wonders all around.
Liquid chlorophyll just might help you on your hair growth journey. It's no secret that ANY SERIOUS HAIR GROWTH REGIMEN should include two major things...
The 1st thing is using all-natural, stimulating products on a consistent basis, if not daily. That's very important but the second thing that is equally as important is making sure that your body is healthy in general.
You might grow more hair, but without elite nutrition and detox...
Your growth might not be as lasting as you'd want and it probably won't grow as thick and healthy as fast as when you are combining proper nutrition and body detoxification with great hair oils and DIY growth vitamins.
How Chlorophyll Green Juice Grows Hair Like a Weed!
Now look, how chlorophyll and this POWERFUL green juice comes in the picture is by making sure that your body is healthy.
By adding chlorophyll into your diet you're gonna realize that you are seeing amazing results not only in your hair but in your skin and in your body in general! Honneeeeeey..... #QUEENING
Chlorophyll is what actually creates the green pigment in plant-life, it harnesses the sun's energy to make plants grow, it is the equivalent to what blood is to us humans.
It makes the veggies that makes us healthy, healthy!
Chlorophyll is packed-full of many hair-health vitamins including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin K.
It is also full of fatty acids and minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, and magnesium which is very important for our overall health and for our bodies.
In fact, chlorophyll has been shown to help fight off cancer, it also helps to stabilize our hormones and it is great for weight loss, digestive issues and a whole list of wonderful things.
Specifically for hair growth though, drinking chlorophyll helps because chlorophyll is great at increasing red blood cells and with the increase in red blood cells in your body, that is gonna speed up healing from sores and wounds which directly effects many scalp issues. This prevents further follicle damage. When the follicles die, NO MORE HAIR. So this is super-important!
Additional Benefit: Slowing Gray Hair & Wrinkles
Not only is chlorophyll able to help to stimulate growth but it's also been linked to slowing down the appearance of gray hairs and has anti-aging properties that are proven to repair rejuvenate skin tissue. It helps to protect against tissue damage and premature aging in the face. It's like a Black-Don't-Crack insurance policy, lol.
How To Use Liquid Chlorophyll Yourself
It's simple really. Get a cup of water, 6-8 ounces is perfect. More is fine too...
You ever just take for granted that a friend of yours knows the same things that you do?
Well, sometimes we make that mistake with our readers. You hear about great natural hair conditioners all the time. We've already written about conditioner washing natural hair and pretty much all of us use hair conditioners.
Still though, many don't REAAALLY know the difference in conditioning and the deep version. There is a BIG difference, soo....
In this article we're gonna talk about...
What it means to deep condition your hair.
How deep conditioning is different from regular conditioning.
What Do Regular Conditioners Do?
So here's the deal. Regular conditioners only work on the outside by softening your hair, they help smooth down your cuticles, minimize the static and sometimes helps water stay in your hair strand. When you rinse out the conditioner some conditioning agents are left behind which keeps your hair feeling soft.
Watch Out For Fake "Deep" ones...
I can't stand fake "deep" folks, same goes for conditioners, ha! You have to watch out for the way some brands will call a regular conditioner what it REALLY ISN'T. The term ''deep conditioner" has been misused in the retail world as a way to deceive buyers.
You see, it's really simple. If a deep conditioner doesn't have any penetrating ingredients like olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil or hydrolyzed wheat protein, just to name a few, it's NOT a deep conditioner, it's a regular conditioner or just a regular styling cream companies like to add the word 'deep' to justify the high price tag.
DIY Deep Conditioners Are Simple To Make
Some like to buy them, but they are easy to make from home. Simply mix some kind of hair-healthy penetrating oil to a regular conditioner turns it into a deep conditioner, no need to run out to the stores to buy a separate deep conditioner.
Just keep in mind that deep conditioning is not meant to be a protein treatment so when DIYing your own mix, try not to exceed 2 tablespoons of hydrolyzed wheat protein per every 2 cups of conditioner especially if you choose to deep condition your hair often.
How Often To Deep Condition Will Depend On Various Factors
Everyone's hair is different. So when deciding how often to deep condition it depends on how damaged your hair is, how often you mishandle your hair with heat and hair tools, and it really depends on your hair type based on porosity level.
Deep conditioners work best on damaged hair because it tends to settle into the damaged cracks in any uneven cuticle surface.
So the more damaged or porous your hair is the more time you should let the deep conditioner sit in your hair to fill in those gaps either with steam from a shower cap or a hair steamer but there's no need to let it exceed 30-45 minutes or you run the risk of hydro fatigue if you sleep in it overnight or overdrying if you sit under the dryer for too long.
When It's ALWAYS GOOD To Treat Your Hair As If It's Damaged
First, let's define damaged hair. Damaged hair is hair that has any injury or impairment to the cuticle, causing the hair to increase in porosity.
So medium-to-high porosity naturals should always nurture our hair as if it's damaged.
It's interesting to note that porosity levels in your hair fluctuate throughout your life based on how you handle your hair, your health, lifestyle, the environment and the use of wrong products.
Increased porosity leads to more breakage and split ends which causes you to have shorter, more damaged hair. How can you avoid this? Most of us should automatically treat our hair like it's damaged. Why?
Because being in the habit of treating your hair like it doesn't have any damage can actually lead to damage.
Look. I'm not saying you have to deep condition your hair every time you shampoo it, just be aware and listen to your hair, if it starts to look dull or you notice some split ends, give it more love and attention.
Deep Conditioning Guidelines According To Porosity
As said earlier, your porosity can change through time, so always pay attention to how your hair is reacting and check your porosity every 3-6 months.
Low Porosity Hair DEEP Conditioning Needs: If your hair is low porosity(and it already has moisture being held in the strands) deep condition your hair depending on how its behaving. So when it gets really dry, go ahead and deep condition it, if it's not really dry just do a regular conditioning after shampoo.
Medium Porosity Hair DEEP Conditioning Needs: If you have medium-porosity hair, you need to at least deep condition your hair twice a month.
High Porosity Hair DEEP Conditioning Needs: For high-porosity hair you should be deep conditioning your hair EVERY TIME you shampoo it rather than regular conditioning. Your hair and scalp will treat you for the love you show it, trust me.
ALL Porosity Levels Advice: No matter your porosity level, after shampooing it's important to at least regular condition your hair if you're not deep conditioned and make sure the conditioner sits in your hair for at least 10 minutes this way it has enough time to soothe and heal your cuticles after experiencing such a traumatic thing like shampooing.
Some Types Who Might Avoid Deep Conditioning
Some women with low porosity hair have found that they never have a true need to deep condition their hair because the low porosity doesn't allow for moisture to leave fast enough to cause dryness problems between regular conditioning sessions.
Also, for some with thin or fine hair, they often find that deep conditioning weighs their hair down and make it feel too oily.
If your hair is in one of these groups and once in a while you choose to deep condition, you should be sure to leave the deep conditioner in for no more than 30 minutes.
Listen... When you see older Asian women with 6 feet long hair and it's STILL jet black...
You probably gonna feel some-kinda-way and start sniffin' around for answers.

If you haven't heard of the Yao women, look...
With their average hair length of about 6 feet, the Yao ethnic women made it to the Guinness Book of World Records as the “world’s longest hair village.
Part of their secret to having such long hair lies in washing it with fermented rice water.
And there are a bunch of ways to get the amazing healthy-hair benefit and grow your hair stealing some of their tricks.
In this article, I will show you an amazing fermented rice product that is selling faster than cold bottles of water on a hot day when Permit Patty started minding her own dang business.

Rice water contains vitamins like Vitamin B, C, and E and amino acids which can help in hair regeneration. Hair shedding also slows down.
In a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science in 2010, researchers showed that using rice water as a hair treatment offered significant benefits including reducing surface friction and increasing hair elasticity which ultimately stops hair breakage and hair fall.
DIY Rice Water Rinsing - You Can Do It!
There are many ways to make your oil rice rinse, fermented or non-fermented. Many say the fermented version is kindy funky smelling.
Don't worry though, a favorite READY-MADE product named Royal Herbal Organics makes a WONDERFUL-SMELLING fermented rice herbal shampoo and conditioner.
YouTubers are NUTS about it and almost EVERY review I see are from women going crazy over the softness and growth results. I'll post some more info about that later in this article though.
For right now check out this rice water rinse vid and see the benefits!
Hey, not everyone wants the trial and error of doing their own DIY shampoos and conditioners. Especially when there are companies out here whipping up miracles-in-a-bottle. Like....
Royal Herbal Organics Fermented Rice Shampoo - BELOVED!
Really, the ONLY (very few) complaints I saw in some written reviews of Royal Herbal Organic's poo and condish combo was people SLIGHTLY complaining about the price and bottle size, even then, they were still saying they love the products and would buy again. It's just worth it.
And it's handmade, so you're always gonna pay a lil' more for the extra attention to detail and hand craftsmanship involved.
The Science Behind Why Fermented Rice Heals Hair: INOSITOL
Both scientists and beauty lovers have tried to find why rice water works so well at beautifying, strengthening and growing hair. Well...
Studies have found that the natural chemical inositol, an ingredient found in rice water, is able to penetrate damaged hair and repair it from the inside out. It even protects hair from future damage.
This inositol even stays in your hair even after the rice water is rinsed off, acting as a shield and protecting your hair from damage. Rice water also contains amino acids that strengthen the hair roots, increase hair volume, and make your hair shiny and smooth.
It's perfect for hair.

Review of some advanced features of FHI Heat Flat Irons
The Exclusive Proprietary Nano-Fuzeion™ Technology only exists in FHI products. They produce gently Far Infrared Heat, and low Electromagnetic Field is very effective for treating damaged hair gently.
Once you drag the flat iron on hair, it will lose heat, say, if the temperature set is 400F, when sliding the iron through your hair for a while, the temperature will drop to 390F. The FHI solved this problem with their RAPIDTEK™ Heating Technology which instantaneously balances heat lost to maintain the temperature consistently from the root to the bottom of your hair. This feature is only offered with the FHI Heat EPS Black Diamond Digital model. The ceramic tourmaline plates significantly reduce heat damage while treating your hair gently.
Check out FHI flat iron reviews from a pro hair dresser...
FHI Hair Iron Features and Design FHI has a selection of digital flat irons, such as the EPS and Runway models. You simply click the button + or – to adjust the heat level and the temperature is displayed on the LED screen.
Most of them will be automatically shut off after one hour if you're not using it. The ceramic plates can get to as high as 450F.
The plates are made by 3 layers of ceramic. However the Runway model – one of the most expensive flat irons on the market features 6 layers and the LED display on the ion will show different colors when temperatures change to suitable hair types: red, blue and green zone. Looking at this color code you will never fail to set the wrong temperature for your hair type, it amazingly indicates the color match exactly for your type of hair.
Quality What is about hair dry? No more, as claimed by FHI, the negative ions emits from the tourmaline surface lock in water in the hair retaining it the stable moisture condition. Every single product of FHI is made so that it gives you the most comfortable feeling while holding the iron in your hand. It's is very lightweight you can be straightening hair on clients for an hour without feeling that your muscles are getting tired. Another bonus from having an FHI flat iron is that if you suddenly want to start curling hair, and think of using curling iron, they give you everything you need to create that hairstyle in minutes!

One user and her sister have been using this flat iron and left this review...
My sister and I absolutely love this straightener, we would not trade this this for anything else. It came in on time with everything they said it would come with. We're blackgirls without perms and it does our hair wonders. I was recommended this product and decided to buy it off of Amazon seeing how it is one of my favorite sites to shop. The packaging was more than secure and I really appreciate that because it was a bit expensive. We still use it and have no complaints about it. I would definitely buy from this seller again and recommend all to choose this seller when buying hair products. Thank you
For those who use FHI the first time were impressive with the design, color, and result. One called it this is a curling iron and it works great on her natural hair. The iron gets hot very fast giving me a shiny straight look. If you have a natural hair like me, it is easy for you to straighten it at around 350F, a reviewer says.

Review of FHI Heat Flat Iron: EPS Black Diamond Digital.
Made with advanced technology, this hair styling tool will make you feel like you're using a smart device, the FHI Flat iron is the combination of technology and style and known for bringing the grooming industry’s latest developments. If you are addicted to smart devices, this is an ideal device you and for the tech-savvy stylists. The EPS iron features digital temperature control, color-coded for hair type and textures, and unmatched ceramic black diamond plates. The plates generate more 25% moisture-locking ions, drying out your hair will not be a major concern with this device.
The advantage of digital control is that you can change stepwise 1 degree, unlike conventional models there is limited setting( from 5 to 25).
The energy saving feature-sleeping mode will reduce the temperature into half after 3-minutes of non-use, then it will “awaken” when you touch it.
You see a lot of good things about FHI flat iron, there is a minor downside of this flat iron. Unlike other flat irons, EPS Black Diamond Digital doesn’t have the most common problem that comes from the heating such as the temperature of plates is not set exactly as number display on screen or on the dial. However, there are a couple of small complaints about the button for the digital model, some users find it is hard to press. It is not a big deal, above all, they are still a great value for the price.
I've only been using this for a week, but so far I'm very happy. I had a Solia straightener for close to 10 years which I loved, but this is better. It heats quickly, sleeps when inactive (great for me as I sometimes forget to turn off and unplug in the rush of the morning), and has been great at smoothing my very thick hair. I also like the carrying case and extra long cord, which has a Velcro attachment so that you can tie up the excess cord if you don't need it to stretch so far or when putting away. I bought this at the recommendation of my hair stylist and as long as it holds up, I think it was a great purchase.
If you are serious about using the best hair styling tools, you probably have a lot of experience with a variety of flat irons, and are able to compare different brands including Chi flat irons, Babyliss flat irons, GHDs, etc, each one have unique features, but this is one of the All-Star hair styling tools according to most FHI flat iron reviews from real customers. There are fhi flat iron reviews for African American hair, black and natural hair reviews are easy to find, we even have video for you. If you like to, you can read more FHI flat iron EPS reviews here.

It is up to you to decide if one of the FHI flat iron models is perfect for your needs or not, we simply wanted to give you the info you need, look at the unique features of these best FHI flat iron tools in order to make it easy for you to pick up the right one.

Soooo here's the deal... My girl Whitney A.K.A. "Naptural85" gave an amazing recipe for a DIY shampoo made from Alaffia - Authentic African Black Soap that she says is the "most moisturizing shampoo" she has EVER used.
And if Whitney says that, that's saying a whooooole lot, the girl aint no joke, she has Literally tested 100's and 100's of hair products on camera.
So then, riddle me this batman.... Why some of the ladies in the comment section start dragging Whitney because she said the recipe was "simple"??? LOL! (light-heartedly draggin' though... No super-mean stuff thankfully...)
For instance, check out this comment from Brianna Evans about the claim that the recipe is easy:
"I promise you guys it's super easy" ? *then uses 30 different expensive essential oils
Brianna betta get up off my girl! And got 260 dang "LIKES" on her sarcastic-behind-comment haa!
Others were saying that they aint got enough money to be buying ALL THESE INGREDIENTS.
Now I'll admit that it's not the cheapest recipe, she used 10 ingredients besides water. BUT THE RECIPE IS BOMB! Let that sista be great and teach y'all to be great too, haaa!
The DIY shampoo recipe incorporates the medicinal power of Alaffia African Black Soap, along with 9 essential oils & nutrients known to get your hair regenerating by regulating sebum production, and heal scalp damage!

Natural hair is a real luxury and our absolute PRIDE when it is healthy and well-groomed. So let's talk about how to keep our lusciousness looking irresistible and on full "POPPIN'" status when heat, dust, salt water, and other factors regularly damage it, causing the hair loss, split ends, and lack of shine.
The answer to this problem isn't tough to find though. It doesn't necessarily have to consist of expensive salon treatments and using professional high-class hair products (which are not always as great as advertised).
If you really want to restore a healthy look, shine, and the beauty of your hair, turn to these natural remedies for help. They are the option number one not only due to their cosmetic effect, but also the healing properties.
When talking about natural remedies for hair, we simply can’t ignore vegetable oils, so they are deservedly at the top of our list. It’s well-known that plant oils are a gold mine of vitamins and nutrients, they easily penetrate to the hair shafts to help retain moisture. Use olive, burdock, coconut, argan, rosemary, jojoba oils to restore hair that has become damaged from curling irons and coloring, to add a natural shine, healthy look, softness, and resilience to your hair. You can either rub the pure oil into the scalp or make a natural hair mask:
The hair mask with burdock oil is a simple and effective way of nourishing the hair follicles and is perfect for all types of hair. Mix 2 tablespoons of oil with an egg yolk and massage your scalp with a warm mask for a few minutes, rubbing it into the skin and curls, focusing on the tips. Then, wash your hair with an ordinary shampoo. Use this remedy once a week.
Take 3 tablespoons of olive oil and add 5 drops of the ylang-ylang essence, apply this mixture on wet hair and сover it with a shower cap. Keep this remedy on your head for about 15 minutes, after that thoroughly wash the hair.
If your hair is naturally oily, don’t abuse vegetable oil treatment, while the dry hair can be restored in this way even twice a week.
Onion Juice Treatment
