5 Hair Products with Organic and Healthy Ingredients

Hey Curlies,

It was great talking with you all on Facebook Live yesterday when we chatted about all natural hair products that contain organic ingredients. These are some of the natural hair products I think are best for curly hair.

This topic is so important because the market can be very over saturated, leaving us confused on which products to use. I always tell people when they're overwhelmed, to go with the products with the safest and most natural ingredients.

Check out our lunch time Facebook Live below and leave some of your favorite hair products in the comments.

3 Things You Need to Know Before Getting a Tapered Cut on Natural Hair

Hey Curlies,

We've went from crochet braids to faux locs and now to the ever famous tapered cut for natural hair.

It seems like everyone has jumped on this style trend whether their hair is straight or curly, but I've seen a big response from the natural hair community.

Some months ago I was speaking with a small business owner - who rocks a cute tapered cut - and she believes majority of women will ditch their long curly hair for the short cut. Now I don't know if I completely see that happening, but I do think a lot of women like the look.

3 Things You Need to Know Before Getting a Tapered Cut on Natural Hair - ClassyCurlies

Thinking of getting yours chopped? Here are a few things to consider and a few inspirational photos to get you started:

1. Not everyone is a master at cutting curly hair, so make sure you find someone who knows what they are doing before they start.

2. Tapered cuts require a lot of maintenance, so make sure this is really what you want. You'll likely have to visit a stylist or barber every few weeks to keep it in shape - so make sure you have the time and the funds.

3. Your new cut will require just as much care as your previous style. You'll still have to wash it, deep condition it and apply product

Here are some of my favorite Instagram tapered cut photos:

Finally got these Bantu Knots together ➰! 1️⃣Started on co-washed hair and applied Shea moisture restorative conditioner and olive oil to moisturize & seal 2️⃣Applied Xtreme Wetline gel to define my curls on the sides and in the back 3️⃣Bantu knotted top section (on wet hair) using Crowned Curlies Moisturerizer 4️⃣Left Bantu knots in for 24 hrs (I recommend AT LEAST 12hrs air dry time) Dry time is crucial for these, it takes longer because of how Bantus are wrapped 5️⃣Untwist Bantus like a bottle cap 6️⃣Slightly untwist Bantu at root until you find a natural separation appear, then separate. (Take your time!) Find as many as you can to separate the section before moving onto the next Bantu knot out 7️⃣Fluff roots w/ pick, blending natural curls w/ the Bantu Knotout at top Done! ✔️ Watch the tutorial, link is in my bio !

How to Moisturize Dry Natural Hair with Q-Redew

Hey Curlies,

Some months ago I discovered another holy grail natural hair product, and I've been waiting for this moment to share it all with you.

I've been using the Q-Redew hair steamer to style and remoisturize my natural hair - and I've had some amazing results! People always ask how they can keep their curly hair moisturized or which product works best, and lately I've been recommending the Q-Redew.

So how does it work?

You simply fill the chamber of the hair steamer with distilled water, plug it up, let it warm up and begin steaming your hair. The experience is similar to using a handheld steamer to get wrinkles out of clothing.

Q-Redew natural hair steamer review - ClassyCurlies

How does it work?

The warm steam makes your hair soft, moisturized, and pliable - meaning you can restyle your hair anyway you'd like without wetting your hair, washing it and starting all over from scratch.

It's the perfect tool to use if you quickly want to transition from one style to another. It also great for turning your shrunken wash-n-go into plump, stretched two-strand twists (or some other creation).

Even if you're not looking to restyle, it's good to just give your hair an extra boost.

Book Your One-on-One Curly Hair Care Consultation with ClassyCurlies

Hey Curlies,

I get tons of emails from women who enjoy ClassyCurlies.com's content on natural hair and healthy living, but they want a little more.

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to sit down with a woman who believed her hair just needed a little extra attention. She booked a 1-on-1 hair consultation with me and we chatted for about an hour or so and we put together a personalized hair regimen for her.

We talked about products she should use, techniques and lots more.

I love interacting with you all on social media and on other online platforms, but what I love even more is engaging with someone one-on-one, which is why I'm offering curly hair care consultations.
