Q:Hey Fran! I was wondering if you know any all natural hair stylist? Lol not sure if that makes sense but any hair stylist that can handle 4a type hair in the NYC area.
You have a few choices, actually! You can either go to Khamit Kinks in Brooklyn. Hair Rules in Midtown Manhattan. Devachan in Downtown Manhattan. Mirrors (The Carol’s Daughter Salon) in Harlem. Or you can try 2 of my personal favs, illy for cuts/color or Susy for dope and edgy protective styling.
Hope that helps <3
Sometimes I just don’t have time for very small twists, but I love the wavy look I achieve with larger sections. I do this whenever my defined twists finally fall, and you can even use this method for a daily moisturizing technique if needed. Hope you enjoy.

Recipe: Coconut Oil, Lemon, Grapefruit Scalp Treatment
Scalp treatments are ideal for a scalp suffering from chronic dryness, dandruff, oiliness or clogged pores. I personally love scalp treatments because they clean my scalp of any product build up. For a scalp in needed of a good cleansing, I suggest using our Brown Sugar Scalp Scrub recipe. It is easy to make, inexpensive and has good results.
If you have a scalp that secretes excessive amounts of oil, try this scalp treatment recipe from themotherhuddle. The Coconut oil, Lemon, Grapefruit Scalp Treatment is ideal for oily scalps. Lemon and grapefruit are naturally acidic and cleanse the scalp similar to how an apple cider vinegar rinse works.
“Damaged hair vs. Healthy hair. My hair was on overkill, over-processed, relaxed, limp, dyed and heat damaged. After taking the necessary steps to care for my hair 1yr and 7 months later I am here :) this is just a little inspiration for you guys 💜”
I heart Camille Rose Naturals too. The Algae Renew is my second fav deep conditioner on the market (the first one being the Anti-Breakage Masque by Shea Moisture sold at Target/CVS and here). Your hair will seriously feel like butter with either one. I deep condition every time I wash my hair, which is once a week.
The Curlaide is dope if you need a slicked back look and don’t want to use gel. It’s a butter but has tons of (healthy) hold! Also dope for super defined twists/twist outs and braid/braid outs. So if you need a really neat look, this butter is for you.
The Curl Love is lighter and great for those who aren’t into super neat - defined hair and prefer volume! I use it when I want to pull off the big poofy Diana Ross look.
Those are the ones i’ve tried! Awesome line with incredible ingredients. All available at Target.
The before pic is when Charmsie’s hair was suffering from major heat and color damage. Pretty much a non-existent curl pattern. After a few major cuts, to get rid of all the damage, she has now restored her natural curl pattern. You can’t reverse it with products or special treatments, unfortunately. You can only cut it off! But don’t be afraid to do it just because you’re holding on to length. It will look way better. Trust!
Need more motivation?
I cut my hair from waist length to a short bob right under my ear because of severe heat damage, too. I’m talking about zero curl pattern! You can see my before and after here. It’s taking me years to grow it all back but health over length any day.
Are any of you struggling with heat/color damage and afraid to cut it?
