Natural Hair Care Tip

You can go for commercially available hair treatments or you can visit a salon for a monthly hair spa. You can also gather ingredients from your pantry like eggs, mayo, avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, tea or even beer to make your own deep conditioning hair treatment mask. You can also bathe your hair in botanical oils and get soft and silky smooth hair in the most natural way. Remember that harsh chemicals from commercially-produced hair products can damage your hair so go natural or go organic if you can.

3. Keep your hair hydrated.

The rules are: do not shampoo everyday, drink plenty of fluids, and be gentle with heat application.  Dry, brittle, and dull hair is unattractive so make sure you maintain your hair strands’ life by keeping it nourished. Nourished, healthy hair has the bounce, luster, and softness that depict attractive hair.

4. Get a good haircut.

This is something you can skip doing by yourself. A good haircut is a good investment and if you are able to get a hairstylist whom you can trust, stick with him/her. Your look will be greatly influenced by the cut of your hair so make sure you get a haircut that suits your face frame and accentuates your best facial features. A skilled and experienced stylist who genuinely cares about how you’ll look is a treasure to find.

5. Get your hair color touched up on a regular basis.

It is recommended that color touch-ups be done about every 30 days. Touch up the roots by yourself using those DIY hair color kits. Or if you have the time and the money to spend, visit the salon and get a treatment to avoid color fading. By having your hair regularly checked by the experts, you are able to keep your hair from unnecessary damage.

BONUS Tip: Spritz some shine serum and get lustrous hair in an instant.

Keep a small bottle of shine serum in your bag so you can instantly add glam to your look whenever, wherever.

It’s quite a challenge to identify a specific attractive hair style because certain haircuts and styles complement different face shapes and facial features. Well, it isn’t really about the style of hair that you wear that makes you attractive. What is even more beautiful is a crowning glory that is healthy because healthy hair is naturally soft, lustrous and full of life. So make sure you rejuvenate your hair from the inside and out to maintain naturally attractive tresses.

There are also taped and glue-taped hair extensions as well as keratin-applied extensions that use heat and cold machines to bond keratin tips to your actual hair strand.  Make sure you do some research or discuss this further with your trusted hairdresser.

2. Try the Clip-ins first.

If you happen to decide to get a full head extensions, the application process would not be simple. And although hair extensions are temporary and may be removed anytime you want, removal can take considerable amount of time too especially if the tracks are sewn into your hair. Also, it is imperative that you seek help from a true professional if you prefer the tracking or weaving installation process so that it will be done right and your hair won’t get damaged.

4. Get a Haircut after the Extensions have been Placed.

Have You Heard of ….”The Coiffure Project?”

Have you heard of the Glenford Nunez Coiffure Project?….

Well don’t feel badly, we just heard of it ourselves.

Glenford Nunez is a young photographer who was surprised to learn that more and more Black women, and the number is still climbing, are embracing their natural tresses regardless of the method they use to get there. So with his genuinely creative mind, he embarked upon a project to capture the essence and the beauty of locks of women from the African Diaspora.

To do this the 25 year old – based in Baltimore, MD – set up shop at his TYP Photography Studios and got “cracking”! He initially started off by shooting photographs of his natural haired assistant and moved on to taking pics of  10 more candidates. Each photo is quite imaginative and although they mostly reside on his website, Nunez plans to acquire more subjects and eventually create a Coffee Table Book.

The transition to natural hair can be a cause of stress for some but it is honestly does not have to be. Incorporating natural textured, quality hair extensions can sincerely help with the conversion. Depending on the texture one possesses, ONYC® offers hair textures such as the popular Kinky Curly (see pic below), as well as the Curly Addiction (see pic below). These textures can be used to cover the entire Coiffure with the use of a Frontal Closure – which invented by our CEO, specifically works to protect the hair –  or with a “leave out” to supplement one’s own hair. So please don’t be anxious. If you are considering showcasing your God-Given hair, you do have options!

Celebrate You today!….and let’s celebrate “The Coiffure Project”.

The Realization, the Transition and the Love

We couldn’t help but notice that more and more Black women are unashamedly embracing the natural hair look. Even celebrities, such as Solange Knowles, are proudly displaying their God given coif.

Therefore what are the processes of this transition? Well, there are a number of them.

In the past, to go from Relaxed to Natural hair many women would “snip, snip” and cut off all of their processed hair. Thus patiently sporting short hair for the necessary duration. However more recently, women are adopting new options such as wearing wigs, weaves and extensions. Women are also choosing to use natural textured extensions, to incorporate into their hair to provide density and body.

Still – all in all – it is important to remember to regularly shampoo one’s hair, oil the scalp and massage it, as well as apply a leave-in conditioner on the hair before preparing it for weave techniques – even wigs. These steps keep the hair hydrated and scalp circulated while hibernating. Furthermore once the new style is in place, continue to massage the scalp. Finally, it is imperative to keep the hair ends clipped in between styles.

Here at ONYC we have various options, if you’re transitioning to natural hair or would like to incorporate natural hair extensions for volume. Our customers have repeatedly informed us how the Mongolian Kinky Curly 3B-3C effortlessly blends with their own hair without detection by onlookers. Our Curly Addiction 3B is also quite popular with its lush full bodied curls. You can also go for a wavy hair appearance with our Body Wavy 2A. However, what ever your goal – to enhance or to transition – we have the diversity of options for you.

Embracing change and the “New You” is optimum. We are here to help!
