Our customers rate All Shea Naturals

It's not really all about how a gift looks, I believe what's most important is how it makes you feel. With Valentine's Day being one of the sweetest days of the year (Christmas is my first), this is a great time to mix it up and try something new. You still have time to get a great gift for that special man or woman for Valentine's Day. Ladies don't sleep on this, ALL SHEA NATURALS makes … [Read More...]

You have my permission to be 100% free!

I love how people try to convince you conform to what's comfortable for them. One of my favorite commercials is this one released last year by GE. Moral of the story - that which is different, untried and innovative scares people. But when it produces positive results, then the lights come on for others! This is GREAT news for you and I! Other people may not get us or what we do at … [Read More...]

In life, we must make hard choices

No one ever said it would be easy. This game called life will challenge you to summon up all of your strength and make tough choices at several points. There was a time that whenever I'd come to these points, I'd feel an extreme amount of fear. Perhaps it was fear of having to choose; fear of choosing wrongly; or fear of having to face the loss of what I didn't choose. I would really work … [Read More...]

Has the winter weather affected your shampoo routine? Here’s my secret.

I have a confession. The cold weather can cause me to be extremely cautious when it comes to one part of my natural haircare. Perhaps because I've had some really harsh experiences when it comes to shampooing my hair when freezing temperatures are in the air. Harsh experiences like really severe colds and sinus problems that lingered. Rewind to Christmas 2013, after shampooing my hair during … [Read More...]

Has your natural hair texture changed?

For lack of a better description, it just seems to be curlier. My own 4c natural hair texture that is. After styling, I get lots of curls - whether freshly shampooed or even when twisting several days after it's freshly cleaned. One part of me says perhaps it's just my imagination, then another part says maybe not. There could be very clear clues as to why my hair responds so readily to … [Read More...]

Believe it or not, this is NOT my hair. It is a wig my stylist tapered for my head. My cost for a wig trim? $10.

The danger of wigging out

I'm pretty proud of the fact that I can sport a wig like no one's business. I will forever maintain that they are one of the best options for you when you need to go from plain Jane to instant glam. But I also recognize that there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Wigs can be addictive: They're quick and easy. They provide Hollywood glam on a champagne budget. They're hassle … [Read More...]

Henna hair dye right out of the box.

How to use Henna for your natural hair

Some people use it to naturally color their hair. Others claim it has SUPERB conditioning quality. Whatever your reason, you need to know how to apply HENNA properly to your hair. I've used it once and although I'm not a raging fan, there are others who claim it's properties are beyond belief. I can already tell you according to the instructions below, I didn't give it enough time. I only … [Read More...]

My updo after conditioning. Left hair soft and curls defined.

Here’s how to save time doing your natural hair

I talk a good deal about natural hair styles which stretch. In fact, I wrote recently about it. It's super important for me because I am stretched for time and I know a number of you are, too. But part of my job is to help demystify this natural hair journey for you because it's really not that challenging as a whole. Sure, some aspects can and will be. But not only must you take steps to learn … [Read More...]

Daddy daughter's hair

Her Daddy does her hair! LOVE IT!

I don't know what's the best part about watching this video. The fact that this young African American girl is educated about caring for her own natural hair, or the fact that her dad has no fear in handling her hair. Either way, it's one of the best videos I've seen in a while. PURE. EYE. CANDY. I'm just captivated watching this dad so skillfully and gently handle his baby girl's … [Read More...]

Classic two strand twist out.

Is the updo my new go to?

There was a time the two strand twist all over afro out was all the rage. I couldn't get away from the hairstyle no matter how hard I tried. I just loved the ease...versatility and downright funkiness it afforded me on any given day. Not mention it was also super easy to create and would last me for days on end. Fast forward to 2015. There is a NEW style that I can't seem to get away … [Read More...]

Thank you for your service, Dr. King

To me, this holiday is more than just a day. Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King's life, sacrifice, service and calling ... it's a reminder for me to walk out my purpose with unrestrained commitment. In fact, it should be a reminder to us all because we all have purpose. If there's but one thing I'm certain of, it's that God created each person in His image and His likeness to be a solution to … [Read More...]

Product Review: Organic Root Stimulator (ORS) Hair Mayonaisse

Let's just go ahead and put it out there. I'm not as extreme as I once was in the natural hair game. There was a time that if a product wasn't fellow product junkie or natural v-logger approved, then it wouldn't touch my hair. Forget what worked in the past, I could only use natural things or as close to all natural as it got. While some may still employ this ideology,  I'm much more middle … [Read More...]
