thenotoriouskia In wake of what’s going on in Baltimore right now, I think it makes this event even more imperative. Natural hair isn’t saving the world but it does bring us together so WE can focus on saving the world...our world. Take the first step & start the narrative. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

thenotoriouskia Happy Monday everyone! As we approach warmer weather (hopefully, NYC is on some bs), dew points really effect the look & feel of our hair. To avoid extra dry or greasy, limp hair follow the above concerning dew points. The Weather Bug app is a great weather app that calculates the dew point for you and even provides it for the 10 day forecast, this way you can plan your routines ahead of time. The most common humectant is glycerin (make sure it’s listed within the first 5 ingredients). Others are: propylene glycol, honey, agave nectar, sorbitol, sodium PCA, panthenol, hydrolyzed silk protein, & fructose. Some examples of an anti-humectant are: silicones, esters, hydrogenated castor oil, beeswax, & plant triglycerides (coconut/palm/olive oil & shea butter)...pretty much anything that says "anti frizz/humidity." My favorite anti-humectant is the Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant. 1mon

  •   spklfe 🏽🏽 I've been trying to read up more on this! I moved to AZ which is a very arid/dry climate and my hair HATES it. I feel like I have straw growing out of my head lol hopefully the use of anti humectants to keep in moisture will help! 1mon

thenotoriouskia I look sleep but shoutout to my first wash & go everrrrr 🏾 thanks @supremekourtnee @julianraddo @aminachocolate for inspiring me to just do it! I cut a few inches of heat damage, I still have some more to go....I feel liberated I can finally stop hiding behind my braid out 1mon
  •   nerd.jee I've been wanting to cut my heat damage but my hair is short as it is. I won't be bald but it will take so long to grow back . 4w
  •   thenotoriouskia @nerd.jee you don't have to do it all at once, I'm not doing that, just gradually cut it, you don't want it to be hella uneven 4w
  •   nerd.jee Truth. I'm already transitioning out of a styled cut which I did to cut a significant amount off. I guess I just have to cut every so often until it's gone. This natural hair journey is tough but I don't regret it! Thanks for your words! 4w
  •   thenotoriouskia @nerd.jee yw, it definitely is a journey but I wouldn't change it for the world 4w
  •   __jahmakeaknight__ This is the best I've seen your hair 4w
