Calling all DIY (do it yourself) naturals. We are pleased to share a new service which I think all naturals should utilize. It’s the process of maintaining natural hair and promoting growth for quarterly split end trimming. This week we sat down and chat with an official BSW Natural Hair Stylist & Design Essentials Educator, Debbie about this new BSW feature. This is the highlight of what we talked about in steps.
1. Open up the hair by detangling using DE HCO (moisturizing conditioner).
2. Hair is sectioned based on thickness and detangled with a wide tooth comb to examine the hair and inspect the scalp.
3. Use sulfate free shampoo for the shampooing and clarifying process.
4. Next, hair is treated with conditioner using a custom “cocktail” based on your hair needs (protein/moisture mix) followed by the final step, the trim. The beauty of the trim is that the proper stylist will not trim ends to get them even but will trim to clear random split ends. Another bonus is that the proper stylist can trim ends of most hair in its natural state. On occasion there may be the need to stretch tight curls using heat. The use of the right heat protector will protect the hair from damage.

Fear of “scissor happy hair stylist”? You should be! He or she is only making you face a painful reality you’ve avoided for far too long. It hurts I know but allow me to address the confusion surrounding natural hair and trimming our ends. YES, natural hair should be trimmed like any other hair type, once every 3-4 four months in fact. If you’re afraid you will get too much chopped off well it may be unavoidable. If you go 6 months or longer without a trim, you are going an indefinite amount of time without treating your ends. Which may look like any of the splits here:
If you ignore the split, it will only cause further damage. So avoid having too much chopped off by seeing a stylist for a time about once per quarter. With that said, I am pleased to offer the Seasonal Healthy Naturals Memberships Package. Once per quarter you will receive a trim with one of our Master Professional Stylist, discount on your supply of natural hair products and a complimentary ticket to the monthly Natural Hair Style Workshops. These exclusive workshops are for the lovely natural who enjoys styling her hair herself but would like assistance with proper grooming, Become a member today by clicking here.
Go Natural..? But Why?
First of all.. What is “being/going natural,” anyway?
Natural (adj) – (To be) In accordance with nature; relating to or concerning nature. Anything that comes from nature or comes about with ease; meant to be or inevitable. Something that comes from nature, rather than being man-made.
In a nutshell to be “Natural” is to embrace that about the effects of the world, your surroundings, or yourself as it or you are; the way it was all intended to happen.
I know you’ve heard all the hullabaloo about “going natural,” or “rocking the ‘do’ that God gave you,” or even, “becoming a Naturalista!” And trust me, I know the fuss is loud now, but the noise won’t be dying down any time soon.
Whether you are ready to take the plunge into the naturalism world and need a little further inspiration, or you’re wading on the sideline and occasionally dipping your feet in; still unsure; regardless, you’ve have come to the right place! Here you will read about one of the first major steps in achieving completely Natural and chemical free hair.
Whether you are a transitioning-sister, newbie Naturalista, or even a veteran of fros, wash-and-gos, and curly-q’s, there are somethings within our natural community that we let ourselves believe just because it is “known,” or “how it has always been.” And we sometimes do this and continue to do it, passing advice and tips down the line without adding full logic to the methods we live by when it comes to our hair.
Brown Skin Women is a supportive natural hair, beauty and wellness community and club that empowers women to transform their lives. We provide the tools you need to transform your life through the power of personal development and entrepreneurship.
I believe every single one of us are beautiful and deserving of being the best possible version of ourselves. I believe you believe that too which is why you ended up here, And I appreciate you being here!
