There is an interesting article in the skin and beauty section at about the myths and mistakes about caring for African-American hair textures. Top experts chime in about caring for ethnic hair, whether you wear it straight, braided, loose, or curly. There are questions about styling, shampooing and more.

Check out the article here and let us know what you think.

So, as some of you may know from my hair regimen post when I first started caring for my baby daughter’s hair, I fell in love with Carol’s Daughter (CB) products but found the Mimosa Hair Honey was a little to heavy for her hair.  Well, I was getting low on my favorite styling product, Kinky Curly’s Tiny Twirls Styler, and had to grab something to “make it stretch”.  I had about a half jar left of the Mimosa and used it while rewetting my daughter’s hair with a spray bottle mixed with water and a little Kinky Curly’s Knot Today Leave In Conditioner and got to twisting using a fingertip dab for each twist. ** Emphasis on using Mimosa while rewetting her hair** Boy oh boy, glorious locks, INCREDIBLE shine with hold and less frizzies. Can’t wait to do a a twist out. I am not going to lie, I slept on this product for a good year and a half.  But used in conjunction with the techniques and tips I’m learning for natural hair, this might be a staple again. What CB products do you like??
