The Adventures of a Newly Natural (Pt. 2)


I’ve been natural for two months now. The picture for this month was taken a few days ago after I just washed my hair and applied my Mixed Chicks Leave-in (review to come!). Unlike last month, my hair isn’t picked out so I’m very pleased with the growth.

My hair just adores water and conditioner.
It detangles great when wet.
Breakage is minimal.
It coils up nicely when packed with conditioner.

My ‘fro is flat and dry in the morning.
The remainder of the relaxed ends were causing knots.
Sometimes, it’s just TOO thick.

The growth has been great! I really didn’t expect my hair to grow as much as it did for the month. I’m looking forward to the summer and trying out new products!

Make your ‘fro pop: Eargasm


Newly Naturals usually find it frustrating to look and/or feel sexy with a teeny weeny afro (TWA). We will start showcasing beautiful jewelry and hair accessories from Etsy for our ladies with TWA’S.

Today, we’re highlighting the eclectic earrings from EaRgAsM! The earrings are fierce and standout. Make your ‘fro pop with these earrings! We personally adore the two featured above (And the mannequin is pretty hilarious!).
