Naturally Beautiful Hair (Blog Review)

"It was 11 years ago when I got fed up with the vigorous schedule of being in the shop every week or two getting a new hair style and every 3 months getting a perm. The oiling and wrapping up started to be to much...not to mention the harsh winters that broke my hair off and caused me to become un-be-weave-able!! Extensions led me to a whole other problem that involved my ends breaking and other unhealthy methods of gaining a eye catching hairdo. Enough was enough and I decided it was time to do something different. I can't really remember what I was thinking other than I wanted to "beauty shop tango" to stop. So sitting on my couch, armed with a pair of scissors and a mirror I began cutting my perm out and twisting my hair. I was happy with the out come and have been every since.

What I didn't realize at that time was how hard it was to find magazines or beauty shops willing to aid in maintaining my wonderful locs. As the years went by more hair products came out...some I liked and some that were just awful from the start. In the end most of what I learned came from word of mouth and trial and error. That is until recently!!

Anybody who knows me knows that I am always online and always on the look out for new sites, intriguing articles and art work (just to name a few). The other day while googling random topics and reading random blogs I came across a site that stopped me in my tracks and held my attention for 2 hours. There seemed to be some type of halo glowing over the top of my computer and I was mesmerized.

The site was all about MY hair! Not black hair in general...not permed or straight hair. It was not a site with millions of pictures of different hair styles and a small section on natural it was all about my beautiful natural hair and titled accordingly (without the my of course). Mentally I was jumping for joy as my eyes danced across the different pages filled with interviews, tips on how to keep my locs looking healthy, and  even artwork showcasing and inspired by natural hair. Who knew there was a remedy to that pesky lint situation that so many loc wearer's battle with or that a brush could come in handy!

Besides some very useful information I found the site to be very welcoming and organized for quick reference. There's something about the tone of each piece that lets the reader know how much care goes into the development of the site. This [blog] is a "grab a book and cup of tea" kind of good only it's about Naturally Beautiful Hair!!"
