We’re also moms to small humans, digital content creators, licensed hair stylists, brand acognistic curl educators, founders of the #30DayHairDetox and generally your snarky girlfriends from Chicago with no filter.
We recently sat down with NPR’S LIFE KIT podcast intern, Vanessa Handy, to chat through important things you should know how your natural hair, from cleansing to styling, and how to implement ease into your day-to-day routine.
Natural Hair Care
Back in 2018, Aishia shared a video of a client with raw castor oil and shea butter build up on her hair. We’re always looking for a good visual representation of why we ask our salon and digital clients to discontinue their use of raw castor oil, raw coconut oil, raw shea butter and eco styler. This client allowed us the perfect opportunity to show the lasting negative effects of using oils and butters to “moisturize” their natural hair.
In true Black Girl Curls fashion, we literally broke the Internet. Folks put their boxing gloves on and were ready to go toe to toe with us about their beloved raw castor oil. There’s literal green residue coming off of the clients hair after multiple shampoos and a Malibu C Crystal Gel Professional Treatment. And yet they persisted. So we’re here to offer four things raw castor oil is NOT doing for your natural hair:
#1: Raw Castor Oil Is Not Moisturizing Your Hair
Quite often, we see naturals applying castor oil because their hair is dry or to seal moisture in on washday. But this oil is so thick (think crude oil on the little duckies wings after an oil spill) that it actually prevents water from entering into the hair. Hydra = water, moisture = water. Moisturized hair is hair with water in it. When hair gets dry and the style isn’t popping anymore it’s likely time to refresh with a cleansing/conditioning/styling session again.
#2: Raw Castor Oil Is Not Regrowing Your Edges or Other Hair Loss Locations
We promise you wholeheartedly if castor oil was the solution to hair loss issues it would cost $1000+ for a tiny vial and would be placed at every big box store end cap for maximum profit. That $5 jar of cheaply processed castor oil is doing nothing for that struggle patch.
Hair loss is the result of injury to the follicle/scalp skin or a manifested symptom of a deeper internal health issue. Just in our salon practice, we work with clients who have hair loss caused by central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia, traction alopecia, postpartum shedding, androgenic alopecia, trichotillomania (hair pulling), very low ferritin levels, perimenopause & menopause hormone shifts, and more. None of which the topical application of castor oil can address.
If you are experiencing sudden or gradual hair loss we implore you to see a dermatologist who is well versed in black women’s hair and scalp issues. Dr. Yolanda Lenzy (@dryolandalenzy) and Osei-Tutu (@oseitutuderm_hair) are great Instagram resources to start your journey.
#3: Raw Castor Oil Is Not Being Completely Removed By Your Sulfate-Free Shampoos/Black Soap/ACV/Baking Soda
If a cup of conventional castor oil and motor oil was sitting next to each other and we couldn’t smell, it would be very difficult to distinguish which is which. It is a very heavy oil that just sits on the hair. Especially with the way a majority of the castor oil on the market is processed. With many of the “moisturizing” methods encouraging consumers to spray the hair with water and apply an oil/butter combination nightly, come wash day there are layers and layers of styling products bound with castor oil that need to be removed.
A low powered sulfate free surfactant (surface active agent) isn’t strong enough to effectively remove the residue, resulting in major buildup. Removing this buildup often takes professional detox methods and products, time, and patience. And all the “alternative hair cleansers” are not hair cleansers. Period.
#4: Raw Castor Oil Is Not Your “Sealant”
Sealing as it related to hair care has been grossly misunderstood. The act of acquiring and sealing moisture happens in the cleansing and conditioning process. During a good shampoo dirt, debris, product, oils, etc are removed from the hair and the hair swells with water.
Conditioner IS your sealant. Let that sink in.
When cleansing and conditioning you’re moving down the ph scale. Typically your shampoo is a higher ph (ph between 6 & 9) depending on cleansing power) than your conditioner (ph between 3 & 5), and your water based styling products usually are within a (ph between 3 & 6) range. What we don’t discuss is oil doesn’t have a ph. So while raw oil can definitely be used as a protective layer on the hair (we don’t use them), it does not replace conditioner and is not your sealer.
If you’re a frequent raw oils and butters user, we highly encourage you to try your hand at the #30DayHairDetox.

We met Kameelah in December 2021 after we sent out a model call for tight curlies + naturals that lived in Chicago. Kameelah did a big chop in 2019 and has been completely natural since then. Prior to her salon visit with Aishia, she mentioned that she was a busy college student who was a devoted twist out girl who loved the volume and softness she got from them.
Kameelah’s Initial Salon Visit: December 2021
In her consultation with Aishia, Kameelah mentioned that her biggest hair challenge was the amount of time that it took to detangle her hair. She explained during her consultation that she typically would leave her twists in for 3 weeks, wear the twists unraveled for 1 week, which often resulted in her not shampooing for 4 weeks.
Kameelah’s hair type, formally known as the Essential Elements, is high density with fine hair strands, with a surface texture of mixture of smooth and silky. She wanted to wear wash and go’s, but noted that she still needed to work on her technique. Kameelah expressed that for the new year, she wanted to establish a consistent hair care routine.
Remember, cleansing and conditioning on a consistent basis is crucial for a healthy hair care routine. At Black Girl Curls, we typically recommend that you cleanse your hair every 5 to 7 days dependent on your lifestyle (whether you work out, work a dirty job, etc.) with high quality products.
Kameelah’s Follow Up Salon Visit: July 2022
Kameelah arrived to the salon is a blow out, in which she had did a braid out on. She got color done by a colorist in April 2022. Kameelah was still using products high in oils and butters in addition to the new color, which resulted in her needing a few treatments done in the salon.
Kameelah also shared how she’s working to gain confidence in establishing her signature style.
“It’s also the girl aspect, too. Out of all my friends, I’m the only natural and there’s nothing wrong with it. But it’s like everyone is wearing frontal [wigs], etc. So it’s like when I go to the function, I also want to you know… [kill the game].”Kameelah W. | Consumer
But best believe, the girls are still pulling up to parties rocking their wash and go’s! It’s okay to be different from your close circle of friends and family and establish your own signature style that best suits your lifestyle and personality.
Due to the fact that Kameelah desired bigger, fluffier hair, Aishia used a specific product combination that would give her a more “lived in” wash and go look. Want to know want she used? Subscribe to our SeeSomeCurls Visual Library to catch her filmed salon session replay.

We met Jalisa in December 2021 after we sent out a model call for tight curlies + naturals that lived in Chicago. At this point, Jalisa had done everything to her, from wearing locs for 8 years to short hair, and just wanted something simple to care for. Jalisa cut her hair super short before the pandemic in 2019, and was unable to get back to a barber for cuts when COVID began.
In her consultation with Aishia, she expressed that she wanted to learn to work with her hair for the length that it was now and wanted to wear wash and go’s, but felt like her hair was too short to do so.
Jalisa’s Initial Salon Visit: December 2021
In Jalisa’s initial visit to the salon, her biggest challenge was styling her short natural hair. She tried wash and go’s on her own in the past, and wasn’t the most happy with them. Jalisa’s hair type, formally known as the Essential Elements, is medium density, fine strands, with a surface texture of coarse and smooth mixed together.
“I feel like I go back and forth [with styling] because I don’t want to get too deep in thinking my hair should look like someone else’s because I know it’s not. But I like how it looks now, I like how it goes up and pops out. I’m liking it so far but I know I could learn more.”Jalisa H. | Consumer
Jalisa’s Follow Up Salon Visit: June 2022
Jalisa arrived to the salon in a day old wash and go. During this visit, she expressed that she did not want to grow her hair out longer and was happy with where she was with her length.
Looking at Jalisa’s journey, doing the #30DayHairDetox is the starting point to achieving bomb curls and reaching your hair goals.

We’re curious, what are some of your current hair care challenges and how do you plan to resolve them? Let us know in the comments!
The top five struggles we see women experiencing with their natural hair all lead back to mindset. Mindset is defined as the established set of attitudes held by someone. What we think about our hair and the voices that we allow to live rent free in our heads impact us so much more than a product or styling technique. These five reasons we’re going to dive into aren’t things that are technically happening, but things happening in our minds. We believe mindset is 10% of our hair and 90% in our head. Let’s explain the top five reasons why we believe your natural hair is still dry.
#1: DIY without the Knowledge
This reason is one that stresses us out the most and has been the hardest to change amongst naturals. Somewhere down the line, we were led to believe that natural hair is something everyone had to do completely on their own, and that isn’t the case. Many naturals have resorted to making their own DIY concoctions at home, mixtures that even included food that’s not beneficial to the hair.
Raise your hand if you were a salon regular when you had relaxed hair.
If you were a person that wasn’t about that hair life, you can still not be about that hair life. We’re not saying that you need to stop DIY-ing entirely, but this is where partnering and creating a relationship with a professional well versed in tight curls + natural hair can not only help guide you down the right path, but can also help save you money on the front and backend.
We created an online directory of independent stylists who have taken Cut It Kinky education. If you’re unable to find a professional in your area, we shared 3 Tips for How to Find a Curl Specialist in Your Area.
Many of us think that we can “protective style” our way to length, that water is the problem and we should only shampoo our hair once a month. We get on buses and trains, other people’s cars, our hair comes to the bathroom with us among other places. Imagine at the end of 2-3 weeks how dirty our hair is. This is where we start to discuss with our in salon and digital clients the importance of cleansing and conditioning our hair every 7 to 10 days.
We can’t neglect our hair and the way that we’re actually hydrating our hair is cleansing and conditioning. We’re not spray bottling or adding more products to our hair once it seems “dry.” We’re using high quality cleansers and conditioners and choosing the appropriate cleanser based on how dirty our hair is. We’re all about keeping hair care very simple.
#3: Soundbite Hair Care
We think that we can crowdsource hair care information from people who only do their own hair or gain tips and take small pieces and put it somewhere it doesn’t fit from a professional or group of professionals. We’re taking soundbites from everybody and they mama and trying to trial and error our way to bomb hair. When you take one piece of information from a professional and tie another piece to a blogger who has amazing hair genetically, you’re not getting the full picture. You’re not getting A to Z, you’re getting A to B.
We’ve got to stop receiving soundbite information and actually take the time to learn the full picture. Hair care is comprehensive. That’s the reason why we created our consumer education platform, The SeeSomeCurls Visual Library, because we realized that consumers weren’t getting the full picture of hair care.
#4: The Product Chase
Products are tools that help solve an issue or create a look. Just like a pen is a tool, you need the right type of paper to use the pen. It’s the same with hair care. You have to first understand your hair in order in order to correctly use the product.
#5: Letting Go of Our Relaxed Hair Mindset
Relaxers have always been familiar for most women and it symbolized social acceptance. Relaxed hair was perceived as easy to style and led to freedom since we no longer had to cry and throw a fit while getting our hair combed.
Aeleise got a relaxer at 10 years old when somebody called her a “nappy headed b****” in front of the entire school. Aishia had a relaxer from 13 to 30 years old.
For a lot of us, relaxers were all we knew. We weren’t using to shampooing regularly, we were scared of water and we were used to being able to spray an oil sheen or gloss silicone product on our hair. Our mindset is that relaxed hair care should be the same as natural hair care and it’s not.
We expect that natural hair will behave like relaxed hair in staying smooth, shiny and what we think of as hydrated. We have to adjust our mindsets in order to properly care for our natural hair.

We met Nikky in December 2021 after we sent out a model call for tight curlies + naturals that lived in Chicago. Nikky has been natural since 2016. She hadn’t had a relaxer throughout college, however decided to get one for her graduation. She was relaxed for 2 years then in 2016, decided to big chop and start over with being natural. Like many other naturals, Nikky was getting her hair care information from Youtube.
In her consultation with Aishia, she mentioned that her hair challenges were single strand knots and tangles while she was shampooing. She expressed that she wanted a curly cut that was more of a bob type style with a sharper line in the back. She even arrived to the salon with several inspo pics as this was her first curly cut (we highly recommend doing this for salon appointments, especially when you’re getting a curly cut for the first time!)
Prior to her salon appointment with Aishia, Nikky went back and forth between wash and go’s, flat twists and ponytails. Nikky discovered Black Girl Curls towards the end of 2019, early 2020 and started the #30DayHairDetox shortly after.
“I came across Black Girl Curls and Curl Mix and started taking in that information and it’s been really helpful. I learned from Black Girl Curls that there were certain products I shouldn’t be using and certain techniques that weren’t the best since I wore braids and sew ins a lot.”Nikky S. | Consumer
Nikky’s Initial Salon Visit: December 2021
In Nikky’s initial visit to the salon, her biggest challenge was single strand knots. She had not received a haircut in over a year and due to poor handling of her hair. In her after results, her hair was kept a little longer in the back since she liked to wear ponytails and flat twists at that time. Nikky’s hair type, formally known as the Essential Elements, is medium density, fine strands, with a surface texture of coarse, smooth and a little silky mixed together.
Nikky’s Follow Up Salon Visit: May 2022
Nikky arrived to the salon in a week old wash and go. During Nikky’s follow up salon visit with Aishia, she decided she was craving something new and fun for the summer. She settled on a medium taper cut and was obsessed with her results! She also loves her hair the most in its shrunken state.
You could even tell how excited she was based on the change in her body language!

We’re curious, what are some of your current hair care challenges and how do you plan to resolve them? Let us know in the comments!
We met Kristina in July 2022 after we sent out a model call for tight curlies + naturals that lived in Chicago. Being natural for over 9 years, Kristina like many of others had attended Youtube University for many years and picked up hair care practices that weren’t the most beneficial for her hair.
In her consultation with Aishia, she mentioned that she has tried every natural hair trend under the sun including: The Max Hydration Method, The Greenhouse Method, The Cherry Lola Method, clay masks, deep conditioning overnight and even “washing” her hair with only water. It was the equivalent to throwing spaghetti noodles against the wall to see what stuck and unfortunately nothing did.
She was still searching for what she considered a polished look that was similar to what she thought was “3C” or a looser curl pattern.
“I used to be really attached to stretching my hair by doing braid outs, twist outs, etc to get length. However, I’m currently still trying to embrace the short, polished look. In the natural hair community, there’s the “3C” girl that’s the poster child for natural hair and I think I was trying to replicate that.”Kristina H. | Consumer
Why was she doing all these things you may be wondering? Kristina mentioned that she’s tried everything because she was trying to achieve pretty hair that looked polished. She was trying to figure out what was going to make her hair look how she thought it was, while also keeping it healthy and the maintenance easy, so she kept trying things. Before her appointment with Aishia, she had no idea what her hair could truly do. Kristina’s curl type, formally known as the Essential Elements, is high density, fine strands, with a surface texture of silky, smooth and coarse mixed together.
Kristina originally heard about Black Girl Curls through the grapevine via the #30DayHairDetox.
“In the back of my mind, knowing what kind of [mental] state I was in, I thought ‘wash your hair once a week – that’s stupid!’ At the time I think I was only washing my hair once a month or something. Maybe once every two weeks on a good day.”Kristina H. | Consumer
Kristina even recalls telling her family and friends about Black Girl Curls once she got more into it and how she was going to try washing her hair once a week and even they scoffed at the idea, “Once a week?!” But now, Kristina’s hair looks amazing!
Very similarly to Kristina, we know many tight curlies + naturals out there have tried all the things to no avail, but have you tried the #30DayHairDetox? The #30DayHairDetox is simply a mindset shift on how we perceive and treat our natural hair. You can participate in the #30DayHairDetox by subscribing to our consumer education platform, The SeeSomeCurls Visual Library. Learn more by clicking here.
We’re curious to know what have you tried while being natural and have you tried the #30DayHairDetox yet? Let us know in the comments!
What Is the #30DayHairDetox?
The #30DayHairDetox also referred to as the #NoOilsNoButters challenge in the Internet streets was originally created by licensed cosmetologists + tight curl educators Aeleise and Aishia. It’s a complete mindset shift on how we perceive and treat our natural hair. We are challenging you to go 30 days without raw shea butter, raw coconut oil, raw castor oil, Eco Styler and products that include in the first five ingredients.
First, we don’t hate oils and butters. To the contrary, there are some dope products that are impeccably formulated with these ingredients in them, even in the top 5 ingredients. What we are asking you to eliminate them from your hair diet for 30 days because you need to see, feel, experience, and learn your hair just as it is.

“These ladies are certified life savers! I used to get up every morning complaining and completely frustrated with my natural hair. Some days I’d cuss. Some days I’d cry. I even called into work for 2 days because I couldn’t get my hair together. In Jan 2020, I decided to participate in the #30DayHairDetox. I invested in the recommend products and followed the directions given by Black Girl Curls. It didn’t take long for my stylist at the time to notice that my hair was hydrated. I was on the verge of giving up on my natural hair journey, but thanks to Black Girl Curls I’m thriving!”Courtney W. | Consumer

Our hair is the only accessory that’s front and center in everything we do. As an accessory, it’s our prerogative to dress it up or down as much as we desire. We are not necessarily advocates of natural hair as much as we are advocates of you deciding how you want to show up in the world whether it’s rocking locs, a relaxer, wigs/weaves, etc. We also want you to keep healthy hair care habits at the top of mind when choosing how you want to show up.
Although locs and relaxers are out of our wheelhouse, we recently sat down with two licensed professionals: Camille Janae, Loc Educator + Cut It Kinky Alumni Stylist and Roni Jones, Curl Specialist + Cut It Kinky Mentor Stylist to get the scoop on what exactly it takes when considering these options.
#1: Locs and Relaxers Do Not Require Less Maintenance than Natural Hair
Yep, you heard us correctly! When it comes to locs, according to Camille, it’s not necessarily less maintenance it’s just different maintenance. When a client of hers first starts their locs, within the first year, a client will be expected to be in the salon every 4 weeks in order to properly cultivate the locs along the way to ensure they’re not bumpy, lumpy, and that they’re locing consistently.
As far as relaxed hair maintenance, according to Roni, shampooing your hair once a week is the best way to maintain the overall health of the hair. Retouches to your relaxer happen depending on how fast your hair grows, your density and the length of your hair. If you have a short pixie cut, it could be anywhere between every 4-6 weeks and with longer hair, you could stretch it a little longer.
With tight curl + natural clients, your maintenance appointments will also depend on your density and the length of your hair. For short taper clients, your salon visits could be anywhere between every 4-6 weeks and for longer hair clients it could be anywhere between 10-16 weeks.
Each option is still sounding like consistent salon visits, right?
#2: Locs Will Require You to Be Patient
When you first start out on your loc journey, especially the traditional way, it can sometimes take up to 1 to 2 years for the hair to fully loc and be mature. This is very similar to the new tight curl + natural hair client that comes to the salon after doing all the things to their hair such as heavily using raw oils, butters, putting food, clay, etc in the hair and also trying to grow out holes and baby crowns in the hair. It can also take up to this length of time for tight curlies + naturals to get a good place with their hair as far as growing out your hair through regular maintenance cuts and re-establishing hydration with healthy hair care practices.
#3: Locs Will Require You to Embrace the Frizz
A lot of our tight curl + natural hair clients both in the salon and digitally despise the five letter word: frizz. Unfortunately in very humid climates and with life happening, it is what it is. According to Camille, frizz is still very much present in locs. They look neat on Instagram, but that’s right after your salon appointment. They do not look like that 90% of the time, so you must be ready to embrace that part of the look too.
#4: Locs and Relaxers Require You to Partner with a Professional
Without receiving proper maintenance from a licensed professional, you can experience breakage and ultimately damaged hair with any of these hair options. Each style still requires proper care and for you to partner with a licensed professional to ensure you are getting the maintenance required on time and that it’s being done properly.

The myth of 4C hair will not die no matter how many times we fight the air. So many comments of “my 4C could never” or “that won’t work on my 4C hair” but we never have a straightforward explanation of what exactly 4C means. What we have assumed it to mean by the inquiries we’ve received is that when a person perceives they have “4C hair” they are saying that their hair is very tightly coiled/waved and they have been following a set of care practices that have not been beneficial to the health or aesthetic of their natural hair.
The number/letter system was something made up by Andre Walker based in the degree of curl in the hair. Second, the type 4 folks were encouraged to get a relaxer for manageability. This number/letter system to determine your “curl type” is false, and is not a good indicator of your true hair texture or how to properly care for your hair.
So, what factors do cosmetologists use to evaluate your hair? A little thing we like to call The Essential Elements of Hair. These are the generally accepted principles (GAP) in the study of hair as understood by cosmetologists, dermatologists, and lay people alike. This blog post will discuss a few essential elements that are important to know in your normal hair care routine.
#1: Surface Texture
Whether your hair is fine, medium, or coarse, it is the surface texture that displays the natural appearance of the hair. Surface texture can range from rough and crinkly to silky and glassy, to smooth and cottony. The surface appearance of all three textures can range from cotton candy to glassy sleek.
An individual’s surface texture also determines if the hair will have a sheen or a shine. Light has the ability to reflect off of smoother surfaces, but when there are lot of twists and turns, like in textured hair, light is absorbed instead of reflected. We constantly have to remind our members and clients how the game changes when you go from relaxed to natural and we have to change our expectations of our hair.
Density is defined as the number of individual strands per square inch, which is organized into 3 types: low, average and high.
- Low density is when the scalp is easily seen through the hair due to spacing between hair follicles. Low density hair tends to lack volume unless paired with a coarse texture.
- Medium density is when the scalp is the scalp is covered but the hair is easily parted, styled and manipulated. Medium density hair has average volume and a range of styling ability.
- High density is when the scalp can barely be seen due to hair follicles being in close proximity. Depending on texture, the hair can be heavy with lots of volume.
Climate is one of those things we have absolutely no control over and at the same time it can make or break our hair styling choices. Dew point is the measure of moisture in the air and is a crucial part of choosing a hair care routine. Drier climates with lower dew points (like Las Vegas) pull moisture from the hair, while more humid climates (like Atlanta on any given day) can have too much moisture in the atmosphere inspiring serious frizz as the hair reaches into the atmosphere to suck in the moisture.
How much time do you want to put into your hair weekly? Do you work out? And if so, how often? Are you a mom? Are you a busy professional? These are all things that impact what you have the energy to do to your hair daily/ weekly/monthly. That’s why it’s important to form a signature style, something that you can do on your own with little to no effort, to match your lifestyle for what you have time for each week.
