Protective Styles For Natural Hair | How To Make A Natural Hair Bun + Link Up Party!

how to make a natural hair bun

how to make a natural hair bun

I have been protective styling a lot lately. I don’t know if it’s just sheer laziness of what but I have been going for simplicity lately.

It’s nice to be able to hope out the shower and just throw my hair up quickly. I usually do this style in about 20 minutes. I usually do it at night so that’s a plus!

I know a lot of naturals don’t know how to make a natural hair bun but it’s really easy.

I made this bun out of stockings and socks, old school. If you want to know how to make one, check the video below

You can add stockings to the last layer of it to stop the drying effect of the cotton.

I have 2 buns that I wear. I wear the sock bun which is easiest and I take the same steps to prep my hair for each one.

– Wash and condition my hair
– Leave-in conditioner of your choice
– Seal with a heavy butter or oil ( this bun may be in for a week and make sure you concentrate on your ends)

You basically follow the same process below for both of them. The video below is obviously old. I look so young

6 Benefits of Using Bhringraj To Stop Thinning Natural Hair

stop thinning natural hair

stop thinning natural hair

If you are looking to stop thinning natural hairs, then you need to look into the power of something known as Bhringraj, It’s a massively versatile product but in general it’s used to help people who are suffering from little or rapidly thinning hair. It’s a natural oil product that is made using Bhringraj powder, as well as base oil like coconut oil. By combining Bhringraj powder with something, you can make a huge difference to your hairs overall quality for years to come!

SEE ALSO: 7 Reasons You Should Change The Way You Moisturize Your Natural Hair 

If you are looking to see why you should be using Bhringraj oil in your hair then here are just some of the benefits that it can help you with;

  1. As mentioned, it’s ideal for helping stop thinning natural hair. If you are concerned that your scalp is becoming more noticeable with every passing day then we are here to help and get the right conclusion that you need! It will actively stop the loss of hair because it helps to activate the pores and follicles when they are otherwise lying dormant

  2. It can also help those with damaged hairlines – by improving the hairs stimulation, it’s more like to return to where it was all those years ago rather than a fair bit further back! For those who are losing their hairline in a race because of age, stress or genetics this is a good place to get started

  3. However, rather than just stopping at helping you hair stay natural it even helps your hair come back stronger than ever. The mix-up of vitamins and nutrients within the Bhringraj powder and the coconut oil makes a huge difference. Your hairs roots will be strengthened, and even the skin on your scalp will become sturdier than become. This means that it’s going to stay healthy for years to come due to the increased strength

  4. Bhringraj also makes sure that your hair starts to return to tis natural color. Rather than dealing short-term dyes that leave you with roots and other problems, this can be the perfect solution for dulling or greying hair. It can help halt the process from getting worse, and if you start using the oil regularly then you can really push the aging process for your hair a good few years

  5. Your hairs general texture will improve massively, too. It makes your hair far stronger and can help soften up your hair, making sure that it grows in thicker and in a wider selection of areas across your head giving you a much more vibrant mass of hair than you have had for quite some time!

  6. Dealing with hair problems can be stressful and put a lot of people down in the dumps – by using this product, you can improve your mood for many years!

Stress is a huge factor in hair loss and by being able to improve the vitamins your hair is getting as well as your own confidence in your hair you can ensure that you can stop natural hair loss or thinning easily. Bhringraj is easily found online & in stores.

Tendril Tuesdays: Your Natural Hair Questions Answered!

tendril tuesday

Any suggestions for thinning hair? Due to some recent health issues and massive stress on my body, I’ve been seeing my hair get a little thin all over, but mostly in front. It’s coming out all over, not in large patches, thankfully. I’m looking for suggestions on how to both disguise the thinning and encourage regrowth.

Strawberricurls Answer: JBCO! (Jamaican Black Castor Oil) I have seen multiple people use this to grow thinning hair. You just apply the JBCO in the thinning area 3x ( or more) a week. Take before and after pictures so you can reassure yourself that its working.

I have a question, my hair shedding like crazy..i tried using aphogee products but nothing seen to work.

Strawberricurls Answer: If your hair is shedding and you can’t figure out why, a quick fix to it is to do a molasses and green tea treatment. About 2 or 3 tablespoons of molasses (depending on how long your hair is) and 2 cups of green tea. Let it sit for about 20 mins and then rinse it out. Up your protein treatments as well. Try my egg in conditioner recipe. 1 egg and a good amount of conditioner

About to blow dry my hair – such a daunting task. any quick tips/ pointers?

Strawberricurls Answer: 1st off i am so sorry this is so late because i JUST saw it. 2nd, when you blow dry, do it in sections, take your hair in your hand and tug on it and hold the blow dryer there, this will get the roots really straight. If you have a comb attachment, use this on the length of the hair. If not, use a vent brush for the rest of it.

I am trying to determine my hair texture… and I was wondering am I a 3c…any suggestions and on what products I should use

Strawberricurls Answer: To be honest, hair type doesn’t have anything to do with the type of products you should use but from your profile pic, you look like a 3c/4a. I can only tell you what products work for me and you can choose to try those if you like. I use VO5 for cowashing, Yes to carrots! for deep conditioning, olive oil and coconut oil are my staple oils, and i make my own protein treatment. You can try these if you like :)

How can I combat dry hair and having grey hair whats the best treatment for it?

Strawberricurls Answer: Cowash 3x a week ,deep condition, and use a leave-in conditioner. Throw out the shampoo until for about a month and a half and even then on ly shampoo once a month. As far as color you can try henna to combat that because it naturally deposits color on your hair. If your looking for black then use Indigo

3 Deep Conditioners For Natural Hair For The Fall/Winter Season

deep conditioners for natural hair

deep conditioners for natural hair


When the winter time comes, we all know that it’s time to change our regimens. It was already a task to find the first deep conditioner for our natural hair, now we have to find another? ~throws up hands~

It’s not always the most pleasant experience so I am here to make it a little easier for you to make this OH SO difficult transition. Stop pouting. It’s really not that bad.

The deep conditioners that work on our natural hair in the summer don’t always work in the winter. The winter calls for some heavy duty stuff! You need the lasting moisture and the sealing. Basically EVERYTHING! You want to get ANYTHING you can get your hands on. That winter weather is brutal on our hair.

1. Silk Elements MegaSilk Moisturizing Treatment

This one has definitely earned a place in my heart. Its great for any time whether its summer or winter, it really doesn’t matter. It pretty much can be used all year round. It restores lasting moisture to the hair and leaves it feeling so light.

2. It’s a 10 Miracle Hair Mask

deep conditioners

Want smooth hair? Want to kill frizz? Than the It’s a 10 Miracle Hair Mask does everything that it says it does and then some. Just to give you a little idea of what those claims include

Restores moisture and balance
Instantly restores elasticity
Imparts luminous shine
Enhances natural body
Improves color vibrancy

3. Shea Moisture African Soap Black Balancing Conditioner

deep conditioners
At some point in your life, you HAVE to be a fan of Shea Moisture. No matter what it is, I always have something from them in my arsenal. So it’s no surprise that I fell completely in love with their african black soap line. It is not officially a “deep conditioner” but because the amount of moisture it restores in your hair, i’ll allow it.

Anymore deep conditioner recommendations for the fall and winter months? Let me know in the comments!

5 Ways Honey Can Boost Your Deep Conditioners

honey for natural hair

honey for natural hair


Sometimes our hair can get damaged or dried out because of heat styling tools, chemicals or even dyes that we place on it. Even exposing it to cold air and sun might decrease its durability which is why it’s really important to ensure that you use a deep conditioning treatment once in a while. This will help you restore your hair to its natural moisture and state.

Deep conditioning treatments do a lot on their own but sometimes you may want to boost it’s properties to help your hair look great again. Honey is one of the best products that you can find on the market when it comes to boosting the power of your current deep conditioner and there are numerous reasons for that.

1. Humectant properties

Honey is a humectant, so it captures and retains moisture to your hair. While your current deep conditioner does its job nicely, adding some honey will help replenish the moisture a lot faster by adding the necessary minerals and vitamins needed to achieve that result.

2. Anti-irritant properties

When you undergo a deep conditioning treatment you sometimes feel that your scalp is itching. This is most of the time caused by irritations that might appear during the treatment, but thankfully, honey can help in this situation. Honey exfoliates the scalp and aids in fighting irritation caused by the weather or your need to exfoliate your scalp.  Additionally, it can also help with tenderness or hair loss as well.

3. Helps you deal with split ends during the treatment

While undertaking the deep conditioning treatment you might have to deal with split ends. By combining a tablespoon of honey with mayonnaise, an egg, and apply then to the ends of your hair you can remove this problems easily. Honey hair masks can also improve the power of deep conditioners for natural hair, you just have to make sure that you apply it properly.

4. Nourishes your hair

Thanks to its natural abilities, honey nourishes your hair by bringing all the necessary nutrients it needs in order to stay healthy. This helps deep conditioners do a more effective job of treating your hair and that is why you need to make sure that you add honey into the mix.

5. Soothes the cuticle

Your hair will feel even softer and look even shinier if you add some honey to your deep conditioning treatment. Instead of adding some chemical based add-ons to your conditioner, you can use honey to achieve the same results, only with a much lower cost.

In the end, honey provides you with a great way to boost and extend the power of your deep conditioner. By using honey you will take full advantage of its natural abilities to maintain and keep the health of your hair, so try it in your deep conditioning treatment as soon as possible!

7 Tips To Regrow Your Edges

regrow your edges

regrow your edges

One thing that a lot of people worry about where it concerns their hair are their edges. Some of
us have really thin hairlines, and it can be a source of frustration and stress for those of us who
put effort into making sure our hair is strong, healthy, and beautiful. So, is there any real hope for
regrowing your edges, even if you have struggled with them for your entire life? You bet there

If you all recall, I also had a post about how my mom was able to regrow her edges in 5 months! 

SEE ALSO: 6 Benefits of Using Bhringraj To Stop Thinning Natural Hair

First, let’s talk about some of the things that may be causing your edges to thin out, then we will
go over 7 things you can do to help regrow your edges

Biologically, your thin edges may be purely a genetic thing. It could be a result of aging. It could
be the result of a health issue such as a thyroid disorder, alopecia, or lupus. If you have had
children recently, it could also be attributed to postpartum hair loss. It is possible that a scalp
infection could be the culprit. However, for many people, the cause is high levels of stress on
your hairline from wearing tight braids/ponytails or weaves/wigs and is counterproductive when trying to regrow your edges.

See Also: 13 oils that promote natural hair growth

You’ve probably found yourself relating to at least one of these underlying causes. Am I right?
So now that you have an idea of why your edges are thin, let’s talk about what you can do to
remedy it?

1. The first thing that you should do is to immediately stop doing anything that is adding
tension to your hair. You want to regrow your edges right? This includes wearing tight braid/ponytails. I know that the natural tendency is to pull your hair as much as you can to make things nice and smooth, but the
stress on your edges is not good!

2. Give your hair the chance to breathe! This means that you should ease up on the wigs and
weaves sometimes. Yeah, I know…you love the versatility and ease, but I promise you
that you won’t love when your edges continue to break off from all of the tension

3.  If you can’t give up the wigs and weaves, make sure you use some kind of oil on your edges every night in addition to moisturizing and sealing the rest of your hair. I recommend Jamaican black castor oil, but there are lots of others to consider, including coconut, peppermint, olive, and rosemary. If you use an essential oil, be sure to mix it with a carrier oil such as coconut or olive

4. Stimulate your scalp by rubbing it with oils. This will help to get the blood circulating
again as well as help to heal your hair’s follicles.

5. If your hair loss is due to a scalp infection, then you should invest in a quality
antimicrobial/antifungal product. By getting rid of scalp infections (including fungus)
you are allowing your pores to breathe and your hair follicles to be rejuvenated.

6. Consider your diet. If you are lacking in some vitamins (such as zinc, Vitamin D, B-
Complex Vitamins, or Iron, that may be part of why your hair is thinning. Assess your
diet to determine if you should be taking vitamins or a multivitamin.

7. Finally, try letting your hair air dry and avoid straightening your hair through the use of
flat irons. When it comes to your hair, heat is NOT your friend



I highly recommend you check out “How To Regrow Your Hair Easily and Naturally” by Vera Peiffer. She is a qualified health kinesiologist and analytical hypnotherapist and author of numerous books on health and self-help issues.

She experienced total hair loss at the age of 14 years old and the torture of dealing with this. The tips that she used to regrow her hair are outlined in this book and can be used for men AND women.

She also offers a FREE seven-page sample of her book How to Regrow Your Hair Easily and Naturally and a special six-part mini report on the main causes of hair loss. All free for you to try before you buy!

The DreadLocks Files| Chandra



What is your name and your profession?

Chandra Meadows /Freelance writer/ Blogger

How long have you been growing out your dreadlocks?

5 years

Who is your loctician?


What is your regimen for your dreadlocks?

I have color in my hair so keeping my dreadlocks moisturized  is very important. I LOVE Taliah Waajid’s Black Earth Product line so most of my products come from there. I usually use a spray bottle and spray water on my hair in between washes as well. I feel it rejuvenates my dreadlocks. Otherwise, I dont do much to it .

Do you have a favorite style for you dreadlocks?

Although I don’t do it often, I love to put bantu knots in my hair and then take them down to produce curls.

Have your dreadlocks ever hindered you professionally?

Hmm, good question. I usually go after “creative” jobs (jobs where individuality is welcomed) especially since I am a writer, so my hair is usually embraced and always a conversation starter. So, I’m not really sure how corporate would respond to my crown. 

How do you feel about the natural hair movement taking place amongst African American women?

I LOVE , LOVE, LOVE it!! I think its such a beautiful thing to see African American women embrace their natural roots. I don’t think we aren’t really taught to love ourselves as is, unaltered. America tends to wash out black beauty and put a European spin on it, so I love that so many women are waking up from that and getting back to the essence of black beauty.

Any advice to someone just starting out on their dreadlocks journey?

Going back to your natural hair is more than a hairstyle change (even if you only see it as such), but it symbolizes something deeper whether you realize it or not, you are embracing you and that’s a beautiful thing. Enjoy your journey because there will be ups AND downs  but once that transition is over, you will look back and feel a sense of empowerment. Find the right hair care products for you and have fun with various hairstyles!!  Just rock your natural hair and own it!
