giveaway: Flowers From Fatima

hey, yall!  welcome to our last giveaway of the year!  our featured product comes from young entrepreneur Fatima, CEO of Flowers From Fatima.

one of my personal favorites, the Regal Rouge hair comb

one of the funnest things about natural hair, in my opinion, is accessorizing.  headbands, shells, earrings–kinks, coils, and curls carry it all so well!  especially bright, colorful flowers.  or matte, muted flowers.  whatever the style, flowers definitely accentuate the natural beauty in natural hair, and the Flowers From Fatima collection has some very stunning floral pieces.  we’re thrilled to be giving away this *gorgeous* golden sunflower hair clip!

asked & answered: my hair is NEVER moisturized enough!

chicagoredline asked:

I feel like my hair is NEVER moisturized enough! like its great day one of the twist out but not day one night! and my hair texture is changing. What would you suggest??

ah, yes.  the greedy, thirsty, never-satisfied hair problem.  i’m right there with you, sister, and especially as winter approaches with its cold, dry air, it’s important that we keep our tendrils as moisturized as possible.  here are a few things that might convince your hair to hold on to some of that precious life-giving liquid:

asked & answered: where did my curls go?!?!!

dolceinscence asked:

Heyy! I just recently got my hair straightened and I thought i was gonna die when i washed it and my curls were close to non-exsistent, How long does it usually take for them to bounce back? I have very thick type 3b/3c hair. its been maybe 3 weeks and its still not curling up the same:( I never thought i would miss the thickness of my hair until now.

Firstly, let me lend you my condolences. I know that exact feeling of hysteria while waiting on your hair to snap back after it’s been straightened. this is the very reason that I pretty much only straighten my hair a handful of times a year, even in winter–because it feels like such a gamble doesn’t it?!! sure everything went well last time, but what if THIS time is the time that your curls are ironed out for good?? It has happened! I hear stories all the time about women who straightened their hair once and their precious curls were never seen again. This fear is what keeps me from only straightening my hair only a handful of times each year.

asked & answered: the wash & go

Anonymous asked:

I just can’t do a good wash & go to save my life! Do you do them? How do you do yours, what process?

As someone submitted as a natural hair problem a while ago, a wash-n-go isn’t really a wash-n-got for many naturals, myself included.  My process isn’t the simplest out there, but it works well for me, which is good because it’s pretty much the only hairstyle I can do.  Here’s what I do and what I use:
