Natural hair can be a wonderful thing as well as a tiring struggle. While many women are pros at their daily hair routine and know all the right products to use, some of us have lots and lots of questions. When that’s the case, it’s always nice to run to someone who has many answers (not all though) about hair in general. If you’re one of those women who could use some guidance when it comes to your locks, check out our short list of hair blogs for natural hair that have been known to save women from bad hair days more than once.
Black Girl Long Hair
If you hit their “About Us” page, Black Girl Long Hair lets you know that they are dedicated to helping women of black, Latina and multi-racial backgrounds get their hair right. We respect their site because aside from giving the regular hair tips (like how to air dry your hair fast, which is a constant issue for me), they show love to the everyday fierce hair mavericks with coifs of all backgrounds, and they tell you their backstory. It’s always nice to see women who look and go through the same exact things as you get props, and tell you how being natural affected them. Plus, the design of the website is fly too…
Transitioning? I had to give this blog props because of the fact that you get to go through your transitioning journey with someone else who also is, or make that was–Dani
. She shows you her over two year journey to natural hair from trying to get it to grow with wigs, twist outs, braids–all of the things you can think of. And on top of that, she also provides links to great accessories for your new look, as well as different products to use to get the best results for your head. Check her out, please.
Uh, who hasn’t heard of Afrobella? If you haven’t that’s cool too, but you should check out the popular hair blogger’s site, because it’s fabulous. She’s got giveaways, hits up the hottest events, recommends dope products and makeup looks and more. The blog was started in the hopes of helping women celebrate natural hair and its beauty, and since it started in 2006, the site has reached major heights. She better work!
A psychotherapist, the creator of the blog Curly Nikki says that in her daily work counseling women, hair comes up more often than people think. Interesting, right? We’re thinking that was part of what influenced Miss Nikki to start Curly Nikki, and help women learn how to take care of, and love their naturally curly hair. She covers issues with image based on your love (or lack of love) for your hair, and provides tips on all different types of styles, as well as advice on life issues in general. It really is hair therapy.
K is For Kinky
I love how this website not only gives you hair advice, but they give you fashion and life advice as well. From how to deal with your child’s natural hair, to the significance of good and bad hair days and more, everything you’ve ever thought about your hair you can find these folks saying on this beautifully executed blog. And I love the “I Want Her Hair” parts with awesome photos of women with amazing hairstyles. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this site.
