Shalleen-Kaye and Seanna-Kaye's Spring Picks!

Spring hair looks best when it’s buildup-free. Ouidad’s Curl Co-Wash Low-Foam Cleansing Conditioner is a sulfate-free fave of ours not only because it’s great for gently cleansing color-treated hair without leaving it dry, but also because it’s serious aromatherapy with Rosemary, Sage, and Castor oils.
By Jenell B Stewart

We love Tropic Isle Living’s Strong Roots Red Pimento Hair Growth Oil, it’s great for oil rinsing, as a hot oil treatment, AND for sealing your ends to combat the brittleness that can come from Winter weather.

Cannie's Spring Picks!

Spring brings longer days, nice weather, pretty flowers, and... POLLEN (at least in NC)!! Allergy season causes me to sometimes have the "itchies" and Shea Moisture's African Black Soap Dry Scalp Elixir does the trick to keep my scalp soothed and moisturized.  It's also great when you're rocking braids, kinky twists, and crochet braid styles.

By Jenell B Stewart

Cannie's Spring Picks!

Moisture, moisture...did I say moisture? As a high-porosity naturalista, it can be challenging to keep my hair moisturized. In the spring and summer seasons, I'm wearing my hair out more and don't like it to be weighed down.  Senica's Senk Conditioner & Hair Lotion is an amazing leave-in conditioner and moisturizer for soft, supple, manageable hair.


By Jenell B Stewart

Cannie's Spring Picks!
