Hair Growth Challenge

This month’s Hair Challenge will focus on constant moisture. The extreme summer heat can do a number on your strands. Maintaining a protective style and extra care is all you need to fight against potential damage.

  1. Moisturize

    • The key to this challenge is having the right products. Take your favorite moisturizer and oil, mix together in a spray bottle and dilute with water. Keep this on hand!
  2. Protect

    • Pick a protective style that tucks away your ends. I like to do twists pulled back into a bun.
  3. Replenish

    • This is the easy part! To keep your hair moist in the heat, spray the solution you made onto your strands *at least* 3x a week. Use a soft brush to smooth down your hair. At night you can just spray with water and wear your satin scarf.

Blog Post 

I am what we call a lazy natural. I love natural hair, drinking water, and minding my business. I have Mid back length 4C natural hair (that shrinks all the way up to my scalp) and 10 years of skin in the game. I spend my free time gardening and drumming up design ideas for my home.

I built this site to provide a resource for 4C naturals and real representation for girls like me, who just had to figure it out. I’m so glad you’ve found us.
