[Get a feel for the Kingsteam 2 in 1 Hair Steamer + Ozone Facial Steamer]

End of the day, the style she shows comes out looking amazing and she gives a ton of detailed and helpful instructions.  I mean she did her DANG THANG!

But laaaawd hammercy, some women really came at this young lady crazy. Yáll already know, some folks ain't happy unless they mad about somethin'.

I just blew your mind with that philosophical  DOOZY, didn't I? Ha! Anywhoo girrrl...

I can hardly understand it, still let's enjoy it for what it is. A thorough and cool tutorial. The vid is below and I posted a few of the comments that I liked defending the sista....

In Defense Of Seun's Use of "Fake Hair" - Protective Styling Has a REAL Purpose

One thing I liked about the comments under the vid is that some other women stepped up and defended Seun about using the Italian Perm Yaki Hair so that she could go on living her best life and not be going back and forth with no haters, LOL! Check them out....

Shannon Barber says...

"For those keep asking why she is wearing fake hair. Well, some ppl like to wear protective styles to keep their hair thick and healthy from the breakage of combing and curling you're natural hair daily.

Also some ppl like versatile looks that last for days so they don't have to bother with combing their hair, esp those with a busy work life. Lastly, she's doing a TUTORIAL to show others how to create styles, not necessarily meaning she would wear this style or wear weave all the time.

Now stop asking. You sound rude and quite annoying. Btw, I thought the video was useful, as intended. Keep up the
great work..."

Ebony Miracle Says...

I am seriously binge-watching your videos! I understand why you wear weaves(which has absolutely nothing to do with self-hate), the proof of the wonders and benefits of wearing protective styles is clearly in your natural hair which you proudly flaunt on a regular basis! Your tutorials get through to me in such a way that no other YouTuber has.

And for the first time in my history of wearing weaves, I am able to actually entertain the idea of installing my own weaves(may God help me!). I took down my weave not too long ago and noticed a significant amount of growth that I would not have noticed if I was constantly styling and manipulating my natural hair.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. You are truly beautiful inside as well as outside. To be as young as you are and to have such a keen knowledge of hair is truly a blessing. I wish you the very best in whichever direction you decide to go in life.

It's so great to hear her husband encouraging her love and care for her natural hair and even giving a little pep talk to the other natural women out here who will ultimately end up with healthier and stronger hair.

Product Warning Before Watching This Finger Coil Tutorial

One word of caution from a helpful commenter about one of the natural hair products that Yapah Rawchaa used, you may or may not care, but the sista who commented talked about Eco Styler gel.

Here's what Tamara Douglas said...

"Watch the youtube video titled: 'Why I stopped using eco styler gel.'

Eco styler gel has cancer causing ingredients! Try flax seed gel! It's cheaper and works way better!"

And Tamara is right, lots of new information has come out about Eco Styler gel, and it will give you something to think about, so take heed sis...

Folks are so excited, It feels like the release of Black Panther 2, lol!

[Follow BlackHairOMG's Instagram we got the hair pics & videos FOR DAYS!]

Anyway, we wanted to pick through all of the "bought and paid for" reviews that are so popular on Youtube these days and find you some honest reviewers, just like we did when The Mane Choice came out with their Type 4 Hair Line a few months ago. So let's get into it, shall we...

2 Youtubers who BlackHairOMG Trusts - Fro The Culture Reviews

Y'all already know we give tons of Youtube Gurus the super side-eye for various reasons.

But Kimberly Cherrell and Shenelle Taylor get our 100% AUTHENTIC BlackHairOMG STamp of Approval. They always give their real feelings even if they don't like a product.

Even in these reviews of "Do it FRO the Culture" from The Mane Choice, one of these sistas flat out says, she'll continue to use the rest of her bottles, but it's not really for HER. She loved the conditioner, but she says she pretty much loves ALL of The Mane Choices conditioners, but when it came to styling she had some different feelings....

Check out Kimberly Cherrell's video right now and see what you think...

Honest Review Video: Mane Choice 'Do it FRO the culture'

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...

NaturalReign says...

"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...

HOW TO: FLAT IRON NATURAL HAIR!

HOW TO FLAT IRON 4c type 4 NATURAL HAIR
POW!!!

OKAY listeeeeen, so you're about to see this really cute tutorial from a small Youtuber that really caught a lot of attention. Good AND bad attention girl...

Ahhh, I love the smell of fresh haircare dictators in the morning! Baaaaahaha...

Me personally, I can't understand why people get real-world angry about someone applying a little heat to their hair every blue moon. Yes, constant and harsh heat is a known hair killer, folks gets so EXTRA though!

4c type 4 natural hair community
Soooo.... I'm guessing you disapprove???

I mean, I don't use heat. But do you boo... And if I do have any reaction it maybe some CONSTRUCTIVE advice or if somebody is totally jackin' their hair up and don't wanna listen, I just sit back, grab some popcorn and get my giggle on.

Life's too short too catch a nervous breakdown over somebody else's head of hair.

So let me tell you what happened girrrrrl, we've all seen the naturals that get waaaaay in their feelings about what someone else does with their own hair (you know the type), lol.

Well honeeeeeey, some of these folks I saw talkin' bukoo crap about this sista named Zoia was just a lil' too much.

Her tutorial below is actually quite good, truth be told. But she got soooo much backlash that she had to come back and explain her self...

[RELATED ARTICLE: Why I Can't Stand The "Natural Hair Community"]

Zoia Explains That There's No Reason to Be BIG MAD

So look, the sista ended up coming back to say to all the natural hair rulers of the world...

"Guys, lol. This is crazy I have to post this but I rarely straighten my WHOLE head because I wear sew-ins and do other things to my hair. I give my hair breaks all the time and prior to me straightening my hair this time I went 3 months without putting any heat on my hair!

I'm fine with my hair. It's still healthy with my little heat damage in the front! Thanks for the advice though... (smiley face)"

She kept it peaceful and classy, as a true Queen does... And besides that, the proof was ALL THE WAY in the pudding.

The End Results: FIRE

So not everyone was a negative Nancy, many naturals showed love and tried to let this sista be great the best way she knows how to be.

And hey, you'll see for your-dang-self... The style came out GORGEOUS and it's not everyday that you see such quality results when straightening natural hair.

In the end, she helped some ladies figure out how to get it right. Here's an example of one of the positive comments...

"This is straight hair goals. I don't throw heat into my hair too often, but when I do..it won't do right for anything, lol. maybe 10 minutes of being straight before reverting"

Maybe it'll help you too, straightening your natural hair isn't a sin... I'll link to the video tutorial below. Check it out...

See.... You're gonna think I'm nasty for this. Still, feel me on this though, we're not talking about super-gross, SMELLY dirty hair, just a lil' dirty, ya heard me? **Birdman voice, lol**

Listen sis, I saw this happen with my own eyes and in my own hair, it's weird, yet true though.

See... When my hair was a little "old" and my natural greases were building up, my styling was often POPPIN' more then ever.

I never understood why....

At that time I didn't know about the value of our natural scalp oils and what they do so you can enjoy better moisture retention, scalp health and hair strength.

[See article on the dangers of Product Buildup HERE]

But now I know, that's why love this tutorial on how to SLAY 8 dope natural hairstyles on old dirty hair! Cuz it beez like that sometimes! Let's keep it real!

Great Natural Hairstyles From a YouTuber I'd Never Known!

You know that our hope is always to show you someone that Youtube may not be throwing in your face every 5 minutes like the "big names" they promote...8 Super-Cute Natural Hairstyles on Old, "Dirty" Hair - Type 4 Styles 4c hairstyle

That way you see some information you may have never seen and these sistas can get some more exposure and maybe more support from the community!

So let me introduce you to this Youtuber that I just discovered today, her name is Kaay, and she's a gorgeous chocolatey sister who has some really underrated styling videos. That's why she's in the Black hairOMG SPOTLIGHT today!

Don't Sleep On The Gems She Non-Chalantly Drops

One must-do tip that Kaay mentioned and demonstrated very quickly was to start buy spraying the hair down with water (make sure it's not hard water) before starting to style it.

Do NOT SKIP THIS STEP!

Even if you're going to eventually add other hydrating products for your hair, start with that spritz of water to moisturize. Why???

Because NOTHING hydrates better than pure water. Everything else is secondary, please remember that.

I think you're gonna absolutely love this tutorial for doing a perm rod set on short natural hair! So dope. And look...

One of the BEST THINGS about Alisa's video tutorial is that her information is straight to the point, not a bunch of fluff like some vids, it's just helpful step-by-step instructions and real help. On top of that, she went the extra mile that you hardly ever see from YouTube hair channels...

Alisa is the TRUE MVP for showing how you keep this style overnight, SO HELPFUL! That part is ALWAYS MISSING in tutorials.

Her Hair Not Short Enough For You?

The only half-way complaint/compliment I saw from the ladies who watched the vid is that some were saying that Alisa's hair isn't truly "short". Some said she's just being modest and that she only had shrinkage instead of short hair. Shoooot, well if so, here's the deal...

Even if your hair is too short to do her style at the moment, this FANTABULOUSNESS will give you the motivation to keep growing. Those curls turned out BOMB honey!
