We heard you cry and Honeylocs is here to help.


Let's talk natural hair 101:


1. What is natural hair?

Natural hair is hair that has not been chemically altered or relaxed through the use of chemicals. It is hair that is in its natural state, free from any chemical processing.


2. What are some common natural hair types?

The most common natural hair types are type 3 (curly) and type 4 (coily or kinky). Type 3 hair has defined curls that range from loose to tight, while type 4 hair is tightly coiled and can range from fine to coarse.


3. How should I care for my natural hair?

Caring for natural hair involves keeping it moisturized, using gentle products that don't strip the hair of its natural oils, and minimizing heat styling. Protective styling such as braids or twists can also help to protect natural hair.


4. What are some tips for growing and maintaining healthy natural hair?

Some tips for growing and maintaining healthy natural hair include maintaining a healthy diet, avoiding harsh chemicals and heat styling, regularly washing and conditioning the hair, and protecting the hair with styles that don't cause damage.


5. Can I dye or color my natural hair?

Yes, you can dye or color your natural hair, but it's important to use gentle, non-toxic products that won't damage your hair. It's also important to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully and to consult with a professional stylist if you're unsure about the process.


6. How often should I trim my natural hair?

It's recommended to trim natural hair every 6 to 8 weeks to help prevent split ends and promote healthier hair growth.


7. How long does it take for natural hair to grow?

Hair growth varies from person to person, but on average, hair grows about a half-inch per month. With proper care and maintenance, natural hair can grow up to 6 inches per year.


8. Can natural hair be straightened or flat ironed?

Yes, natural hair can be straightened or flat ironed, but it's important to use heat protectant products and avoid heat styling too frequently to prevent damage. It's also important to use a high-quality flat iron that won't overheat the hair and cause burning or breakage.


9. Are there any specific products I should use for natural hair?

There are many products specifically formulated for natural hair, such as sulfate-free shampoos, moisturizing conditioners, and leave-in treatments. It's important to find products that work well with your specific hair type and to avoid products that contain harsh chemicals or ingredients that may dry out your hair.


10. What are some common natural hair misconceptions?

Some common natural hair misconceptions include that it's difficult to manage, that it can't be long or healthy, and that it's unprofessional or not aesthetically pleasing. However, with proper care and maintenance, natural hair can be beautiful, versatile, and healthy.
