Loc Love


 Self-love is one of the driving motives behind embracing natural hair, and we are completely here for it! However, often times, when natural hair is discussed, loose curls and kinks are highlighted, but locs tend to be forgotten about. No, we aren't referring to faux or goddess locs, though they make some pretty fabulous protective styles. We are talking about authentic locs! The kind that take long-term commitment. A part of why less light has been shed on locs, is because an air of mystery still resides around them. To help spread some loc love and knowledge, we reached out to a couple of well-informed ladies.    Meet the lovely Keisha Johnson, seasoned in her sisterlock journey, and Keianna Springer, a newly loc'd beauty.                @k_adore                       @keiannajenay_       How long have you had your locs and what inspired you to get them?  Keisha: My sisterlocks were installed September 2014. I’ve always wanted locs since being a kid. I was inspired to... MORE

Halloween Hair! 3 Effortless Looks with Curlhawkqueen


By Mariah Tanter @curlhawkqueen   Let’s be honest, the first thing naturals think about when participating in anything festive is “What am I going to do with my hair?!” This year we are not pulling out the wigs, our natural hair can be the highlight of our creativity and should be celebrated with low maintenance!     Lioness Queen I know what you’re thinking, this is the most common costume idea for women right? Wrong. What people fail to realize is that there is a secret within your day 5 hair, VOLUME!

3 Simple Ways to Pamper Yourself This Fall


  Fall can be busy. It’s easy to get so caught up in daily tasks and appointments that you begin to neglect your own self care a bit. But, don’t underestimate the power of taking even just a few minutes a day to slow down and do something for yourself.     1. Hot Tea Anyone? Of course most of us love our fancy coffee drinks, but we’re talking tea, because it can actually be good for you and help with relaxation! Black and Green teas especially, contain natural antioxidants which can help to benefit your body in multiple ways, including better heart health.

So Long NYFW, Hello Inclusivity!


New York Fashion Week 2018 has come to an end... and we’re sad about it.   We LOVED keeping up with some of next season’s fiercest looks and hottest trends from the hair, down to the heels. But, now that it’s over, what is it that we’ll remember most?   The clothes were great, of course, but the changes arising within the industry is what’s left a lasting mark on us, thanks to designers like R&B artist, Rihanna.   On September 12, she hosted a show for her Savage X Fenty Lingerie collection, and the diversity amongst the models truly captured our hearts! Not only did the show feature models of different shades, ethnicities and cultures, but it also showcased women of varying body types and shapes, including women who are pregnant.   In a world that’s constantly placing beauty standards on women, whether it’s to look like x or to look like y, it’s so refreshing to see a NYFW show with such an inclusive cast of models. It helps convey that beauty isn’t limited to one shape, size, ... MORE

3 Easy Hairstyles for Fall


By Angel Lee  @angelcassandra8   The time of year is near, when fall is in the air, school is back in session and the pumpkin spice latte is making a reappearance.  It is also a time of year, when the weather is starting to cool down, making it easier to get more wear out of our hairstyles. Here are a few hairstyles that hopefully will help to make this transition into fall a bit easier and all of which, can be prepped the night before.     Curls and Bun For the curls and bun hairstyle, you will begin with dry, detangled hair.  First, part the hair with a comb or use your hands to section the hair into two halves, a top half and a bottom half.  Apply the EDEN BodyWorks Curl Defining Crème to the back section and also add a gel for extra hold. Brush the hair together to form a ponytail.  Once in a ponytail, then form the hair into a bun. Next, for the top section, also apply the Curl Defining Crème. With that section, twist the hair into small to medium-sized two strand twists an... MORE
