The Color Factor

We love LA Hair on We TV and if you’re looking for some great hair tips when you’re not on this site, Ms. Kim Kimble and her crew drop gems throughout the show in between the drama. Check it out! (Didn’t get paid for that plug, just love their work) On last night’s episode Ms. Kimble wasContinue reading “The Color Factor”

Heat and Hair

Got a question from a reader this week that I thought would make for a good post. “…is it ok to put heat in my hair if I’m trying to go natural? My last perm was 6 months ago…” At the six month mark you should have at least six inches of new growth. ThisContinue reading “Heat and Hair”

Slip Free Scarf…

Let’s start off acknowledging that there is no such thing unless it’s a bonnet with unbearably tight elastic. The lies people tell to sell product is unreal. We tried this contraption which is sold at the superstore that shall not be named “W____art” and there has been a nightly struggle to wake up and findContinue reading “Slip Free Scarf…”

Transition in the mind…

Most of you know I’m on the Loc Journey. This is just about the most difficult hair decision I’ve ever had to make. This, I feel is more permanent than a relaxer. I have committed to one hairstyle, and that’s the first time I’ve ever done that in my entire life. When my hair wasContinue reading “Transition in the mind…”

Butter Baby!!

Let’s start by saying that it takes quite a bit to get a product review out of any of the team here at OohMyHair.com but this product has proven to be the jam! This has stood up to the texture test and provided moisture across the board in a consistent manner from silky wispy curls,Continue reading “Butter Baby!!”

Perception Deception (don’t believe the hype)

Nobody prepares you for the spectacle you may become the further into the natural journey you travel. I remember my first month natural, people talked about how they were surprised that my hair was essentially a bunch of ringlets, I still can’t imagine exactly what they were expecting. There are some people, even African-Americans that hear the wordContinue reading “Perception Deception (don’t believe the hype)”

Loc Life Thus Far

So I started this blog as a way to give back for the past decade of having natural hair. I’m starting on this journey with locs (sometimes referred to as dreadlocks). I usually am able to manipulate my curl pattern to submit to my will but this new phase in life is proving the exact opposite. IContinue reading “Loc Life Thus Far”

We Thought You’d Laugh

Here at OohMyHair.com we love a YouTube comedy crew called Dormtainment. This week they posted a skit revolving around natural hair and we thought our followers would enjoy. As we don’t agree with every perspective portrayed in the skit a couple of us have been through a similar situation and thought that our readers would enjoy holding theContinue reading “We Thought You’d Laugh”

Hair Won’t Kill My Vibe…

As the Summer season approaches there are some things to remember that will let you make it all the way to Fall without dry-outs or breakage. We’ll keep it short and sweet (We’re vacationing as well). 1. Water- Of course you need to drink it and often, but tis the season for getting in pools.Continue reading “Hair Won’t Kill My Vibe…”

They’re all going to laugh at you…

This post is for the sister sitting at home contemplating making the change. She’s sitting in front of her computer looking for videos, blog posts and comments for encouragement to do something she’s been wanting to do for quite some time. “Why doesn’t she just start the process and see how she likes it?” saysContinue reading “They’re all going to laugh at you…”
