What would you like to learn about Natural hair?

I'm in LOVE with all things surrounding Natural hair and love to learn new styles, hair care tips, product reviews, and DIY products. I have begun experimenting with DIY recipes and have hopes to develop my own product line soon. I would love to learn how to loc, perfect braided styles, and mini twists. I look forward to networking with other naturals to learn about new products and Meetup opportunities. I hope to open a Natural Salon in the next year, so would love to network with other entrepreneurs to share experiences.

What are some of the challenges you find when working with your hair?

Maintaining moisture is probably the biggest challenge I face. I have been experimenting with different product combinations for some time, but have yet to find a commercial product I feel gives my hair all the moisture it needs. This is the main reason I began to develop DIY at home products. Another issue I have is keeping breakage to a minimum. Although I have great length retention, I feel like my ends seem to be much drier natural vs. using heat. This seems backwards to me, and I continue to research to find out how to better seal moisture into my ends. Lastly, I'm challenged with being comfortable with some simple go-to styles for the everyday working woman. I have perfected several likeable styles, but the amount of effort and time it takes to create them makes it difficult o maintain and get out the door in a hurry.

Introduction

Hey hey my curly girls!! I'm a Cali native currently residing in Oakland; who's been searching for a Natural meetup group! I have been natural for over 15 years, but it wasn't until almost a year ago that I took a hiatus from heat styling.
