How can I make my curls pop with your products?
Have realistic expectations for the curl definition your natural hair is able to achieve. A woman with 4b hair is going to have totally different curl definition than someone with a 3c hair type. You can enhance your curls by making sure they are thoroughly moisturized and twist/curl ,with our Curling Custard and give your hair enough setting time or use low heat.

I want to grow longer hair faster, what do I do?
Growing long hair requires patience and gentle care. Hair an average grows ½ inch per month, so don’t set yourself up for disappointment. Keeping your hair moisturised, implementing protective styling, proper detangling, and time will give you the progress that you seek to achieve.
Why won’t my hair grow?
This is such a general question there are a lot of contributing factors but generally speaking if you are doing the following, you should definitely experience some growth. At least this is what worked for me.
• Trims as needed
It’s not necessary you have a ‘trim clock’. Trim when necessary especially when you notice increased breakage, increase tangles and increased split ends. Possibly 4-6 months.
• Much of length retention is dependent on how wep[ll you nurture your ends. Sealing your ends is a crucial step in your process.
• Maintain moisture levels
Add moisture and keep the moisture in.
• Wrap it up!
Satin scarf and pillow case are a must if you want to keep your hair hydrated.

Do I have to wash my hair every day?
Absolutely not! While your hair was or is short, you can be partial to wash and go’s which meant daily cleansing. As your hair grows, the wash and go will no longer be conducive, so start trying other styles such as natural hair braids/weaves and natural hair mini twist or use extensions (less of this is better off) and start cleansing once per week or once in two weeks. Honestly it depends on the weather, how you are wearing your hair and how much product you’ve used throughout the week.

How often should I comb my hair?
For natural hair we advise when damp and conditioned, never comb a dry hair. First, finger comb before using your comb, do this once a week or once in two weeks. For relaxed hair we advise you also comb when damp and conditioned not wet. For both natural and relaxed hair, section hair before combing, never comb your hair at once.
My hair would look super short like that. How do you get it to not shrink up?
To combat shrinkage, stretch your hair. What does that mean? After shampooing/conditioning etc braid hair into 4-6 sections and allow it to air dry, typically overnight, before styling. The next day when it’s completely dry, the curls are more relaxed and stretched, then proceed with whatever style you choose.
If I dye my natural hair, will it still remain natural?
Yes and no. If you dye your hair with natural dyes like henna, your hair can retain its natural state, but when you dye with chemical dye, it can’t retain its natural state because of the chemical present in the dye. It will only appear natural but not natural. Same applies to using texturisers. You can’t call your hair natural hence you’ve used chemical.
