You know what??? BUMP IT... Ima go ahead and start with a review of this REAL BUTTER super-softening DIY recipe because there are just waaaaaay too many Lovelies going crazy over this! So here's the type of thing that women are saying...
Marni Faith says....
"Literally JUST tried this mix on my hair, shampooed it out & blow dried and WOW! My hair is SO SOFT!
I'm in England, London & used each of these ingredients. The only thing I 'changed' was that I used 4tsp of blackJamaican castor oil.
The mask was so easy to apply & instantly I could feel my hair softening. Very moisturized & shiny. Will be applying this mask to my hair over this cool winter period! Thanks so much!!!"
This softens like a CHAMP because butter contains many fatty acids that your hair easily absorbs and that work to make your hair healthier, while also smoothing the hair and adding ever-needed moisture.

Today we're gonna get inspired by seeing the growth progress AND DIY hair growth recipe from "KinkyStyles1980".
Came Back After Heat Damage and Cutting 3 Inches
You might really find encouragement that even though "KinkyStyles1980" has very healthy and long hair today, she DID have some setbacks.
In the 4th year of her natural hair journey, she caused some bad heat damage from flat ironing and ended up having to cut off 3 inches of the luscious.
But that didn't stop her progress, that's important for us all to see because sometimes we make a mistake, jack our hair up to-be-danged and get down about it. Well keep your head up, stuff happens on the way to your goals sis! Check out her 7 years of Natural Hair Growth video below...

Perming Natural Hair Joke - Revenge Prank
Favorite Comments from Fake Perm Video
Jessica Peyton says...
"Girl you should have come out there crying with a scarf around your head and told him your hair was falling out and made a big deal of not wanting him to see it, and THEN take the scarf off and show him your full head of natural hair! Muahahahaha!"
"Can I get an Amen for an African American man whose feeling is STILL hurt because you want a perm! Lord bring them back!!"
"You could see the pride in his eyes diminish when he saw his wife putting that chemical cream or so he thought on her hair. After that, she was getting the shun treatment. But he was very relieved at the end but tried not to seem phased by it.
And continued to let her know that knowing who you are and what you stand for is what's important and that she was being wishy-washy because she got him on the prank lol And that jokes about diluting your African heritage was unacceptable. Which is a good thing he is a man who enjoys exactly what he has and that it doesn't need to change."

You already know all those expensive-behind hair product retailers are happy this sista doesn't get a lot of shine or get a ton of attention (yet) because she's showing everyone who will listen how she's using only 3 very affordable products. Her Natural hair growth regimen products are....
WARNING! WARNING! If you will catch an absolute hissy-fit from seeing a sista use "fake hair" to produce a dope protective hairstyle. See yourself out of this article cuz waaaaay too many folks got in their feelings over this one. Whew....

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....
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.
Ahhh, don't you just love to see a happy couple working together?!? Well in this video tutorial showing us how to do a GORGEOUS finger coil natural hairstyle, Youtuber Yapah Rawchaa's husband lends a helping hand and narrates this bomb natural hairstyle while the sista shows the skills off.
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.
Listen, if you DO HAVE TIME for foolishness, skip this article. Because folks out here lookin' a whole fool doing the "inversion method" when it's so unnecessary for consistent hair growth.
You may have seen sistas saying that it worked for them, I will explain what is ACTUALLY causing their hair growth and show you how to get that growth without doing yoga positions and gymnastics, lol.
I can't have my peeps out here lookin' cray...
First Let's Explain What The Inversion Method For Hair growth Is...
The inversion method has three parts...
1st - You warm up an oil or combination of oils of your choice.
2nd - You massage the warm oil into your scalp.
3rd - You go against gravity and flip or invert your head over for four minutes.
You're supposedly supposed to do this every day for a set period of time, I've noticed that the women who grew hair did this process for a month or more. This leads me into WHY they are growing hair, and it's not from having their head hanging upside down Dracula-style....
First, let's take a closer look at what's really going on. Cells in human body love warmth, PERIOD.
You know that soothing feeling you get when you're warm and wrapped up all comfy in your blanket?
Well, that's the same way your blood vessels feel in your scalp when you warm up a quality hair-growth oil and massage it in.
It's a small way of helping your blood vessels relax so you can pump more blood smoothly, the warm oil helps and the action of scalp massages will help you warm up that area even more.
These two actions done CONSISTENTLY lead to more blood flow, a healthier growth environment for your scalp and more consistent hair growth. These two steps alone. You would get the exact same results without risking an injury and inverting your scalp. So why do people promote the "inversion method"???
Here's The Trick & Why Some Women NEED The Inversion Method
Some women need to BELIEVE that they are doing something unique and revolutionary in order to do the boring-yet-proven-to-be-effective hair growth techniques ON A CONSISTENT BASIS.
Many of us are guilty of this... See, for some it's hard to imagine the huge hair growth benefits you get from regularly massaging your scalp. WHY?
Well, many women discount the benefits of scalp massaging because...
It has a cumulative effect, you must have patience in order to start seeing results.
While massaging we can't actually see what's going on beneath the scalp.
So, when someone says that THE KEY IS DOING IT UPSIDE DOWN for a month straight it sounds like a new secret and it's exciting to try. it simply makes you do the boring, consistent work and be excited about it.
Check out this video about the growth behavior of hair right quick and then finish reading this article, you'll learn a ton of great info!
Video Tutorial: The Growth Behavior of Natural Hair
The Reason Why CONSISTENT Oil Massaging Grows Hair - No Inversion Needed
Oil massaging super-charges the ever-important role that healthy and strong blood flow to your follicle plays in growing lots of natural Black hair.
The function of the cells in our hair follicles is to...
Take in nutrients.
and eliminate waste...
So if you can find a way to improve the taking in of nutrients to your follicles you'll get more protein production and more hair growth.
That's why scalp massaging is so effectivewith or without the inversion method, doing a gentle 10-minute scalp massage every day with 30-second breaks will make a big difference for the better.
Remember, you're not doing a deep tissue massage, so don't wear your scalp out, just rub lightly in a small area at a time to avoid damaging your hair strands and follicles.
Don't worry, simply rubbing a small section stimulates a wide area of vessels, so try not to move around so much. As a result...
The blood in your scalp's blood vessels rushes in faster through that area and since the blood is carrying nutrients that your cells will absorb, they're getting more fuel for growth and in turn are producing more protein to make more hair.
Spending an extended period of time with your head upside down can disturb your body's natural flow, so be careful if you try this.
Improper use of the inversion method can cause other serious issues in your body especially if you already have a pre-existing condition like a hernia, low or high blood pressure, glaucoma, if you're pregnant, if you recently had a stroke, ear infection, obesity, swollen joints, pinkeye or if you're plain ol unhealthy.
And since you get an even better result from consistent head massages a healthy well-rounded diet and a consistent heart-rate pumping exercise regimen, there is no need to do the inversion hair growth technique.
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 theirType 4 Hair Line a few months ago. So let's get into it, shall we...
2 Youtubers who BlackHairOMG Trusts - Fro The Culture Reviews
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...

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...

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!
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...
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.
"Am I the only one who is confused round these parts??? Well, maybe so..."
Well, you aren't the only one confused. No worries though girly! this sista helps you AVOID TIME-WASTIN'....
If you have been wondering why your twist-outs on type 4 natural hair never come out right or your twists never seem to stay without looking all frizzy, it's ALL covered in this tutorial. You'll learn how to twist properly for maximum hold, definition and plump twists for protective styling greatness
"Girrrl, I've Been Twisting My Hair Wrong The Whole Time!"
The most BOMB part you'll see in this tutorial is that she shows you how most of us are twisting incorrectly and end uplookin' dusted and busted, lol.
Yes, she actually shows how to twist WRONG too, the exact mistakes we usually make that are the main reason you don't get defined long-lasting twists.
it may seem like common sense to many, but it's nerve-wracking for many melanin bombshells who have no idea why they cannot achieve that "bomb" twistout/defined curls/curl definition! The skruggle is real honey..... (I know how to spell "struggle", chill....)
I feel this is such an important video because most natural hair YouTubers don't focus on this subject, checoutuy the video tutorial here....
