Straightening Systems for Black Hair

One of the newest phenomenons for Black hair, most often targeted for naturals, are the so-called “straightening systems” which are almost always keratin-based.  Keratin is a protein and when hydrolyzed (fragmented) easily deposits itself on to the hair shaft in the regions of porosity and damage.  Hydrolyzed keratin proteins are small enough to go beyond the cuticle… [Continue Reading]

Reader Q: What are some PURE moisturizing deep conditioners (contain no protein)?

Rollerwrap, Length and End Check

I made a little mistake and visited a new (white) stylist for a rollerset today - the one who trimmed my hair last month.  I decided late Friday evening that I wanted to have my hair done and she was the best option I came up with.  Well, she wasn't bad per se...but she just wasn't great with ethnic hair.  She washed and DC'd with Aveda products, which was fine.  I think she got frustrated detangling and therefore only did a superficial job … [Read more...]
