#TackleThatFro| Palmer’s Coconut Shampoo & Wash Day Routine

In part 5, Wash Day for Box Braids, I mentioned that I wanted to find a shampoo with fewer chemicals.  I don’t always read the ingredient lists for the products I buy. But I wanted to see if I could tell a difference between one made up of mostly natural ingredients compared to what I had been using.

Before going natural, getting my hair braided was a struggle for me. I used to be quite tender-headed and the whole hair braiding process was not enjoyable to me and I know it probably wasn’t fun for the person braiding my hair either. I was the type to tighten up my shoulders, tense up my neck, basically … Read More

#FRIYAY #3 Review| SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Happy #FRIYAY ya’ll! Once again we have gathered here to discuss the products you may want to stay away from if you want your #FRIYAY joy to continue all weekend. Today is a little different because I have the first hair product for this type of review. It’s a little interesting too because it’s a product that’s very well known. But I will say (type) that I gave this product more than one chance.

So I admit that I gave … Read More

Introducing, #TackleThatFro Natural Hair Series

Believe it or not, this isn’t my first time writing this post. I had everything done, then I went and made a mistake. I’d started writing this post on my phone, then I switched over to my laptop. Later on, I got back on my phone the app did a progress update.
