Lets go back in time...

Since the beginning of time, black hair has been an important part of history in the black community.Black hair has made many acheivements over the years from the "perm", invented by Madame CJ Walker, along with the invention of several other hair products for black individuals. The importance of black hair has gone on to expand today, as the embracing of black natural hair has spread widely across the nation.

DID YOU KNOW: In 1786, the Tignon laws prevented black women from wearing their hair exposed for others to see. It was seen as a "threat" to white women. Black women were forced to cover their hair in 'tignons' or headwraps. They instead turned their required attire into fashion, adding colorful ribbons, beads, and other fashion statements. The law was lifted in the early 1800s.

Wash day can surely be a hassle, but dont let that stop you from keeping your tresses clean! Buildup can prevent hair growth, so make sure to wash and deep condition at least once every two weeks to cleanse and stimulate your follicles.

Trimming is an essential part of life for naturals. After tons of detangling, single-strand knots can form on ends of hair, causing breakage. Make sure to trim your hair once or twice a year to avoid those annoying knots and split ends. Happy trimming!
