Got natural hair? Here are a few tips for managing those sometimes unmanageable tresses. Visit www.kinkykurlyyaki.com for more tips!

Wear a satin or silk scarf to bed.

When you sleep your hair is in direct contact with fabrics on your pillowcase. Protecting your crown with a scarf when you sleep is your first line of defense against breakage. Choose fabrics that will minimize friction and retain moisture. Silk and satin scarves are perfect as the hair will not catch or rub. You not only protect your hair against breakage but you also preserve your style and gain smooth edges without using much product.

Detangle with your fingers 

Tangling happens if the hair is left wet without styling. Detangling should be done at least every wash day if you do not want freeform locs. Using your fingers will regulate the tension you put on your hair and help to identify the knots without squeezing them and making them tighter. Finger combing also ensures your hair sheds less which improves length retention. You will also be able to notice changes in your hair quickly as your are more familiar with the texture, thickness and overall feel of your hair. 

Braid or twist hair at night to reduce friction and preserve your style

Wrapping your crown in a satin or silk bonnet is not enough especially if you rock a fro, you will still end up with tangles and flattened hat hair. Take a few minutes each night to braid or twist the hair. Sections are not important but this will give you a chance to remove shed hairs, lightly detangle and stretch your hair without using heat. If your hair is tightly coiled you could bun or pineapple your hair and make sure the ends are tucked away. If you want to reset your curls be sure to add water and your favourite moisturizer before braiding.

Girls Gone Gaga for Garlin. See What a Little Trim Can Do?

Published

on

All it took was one trip to the barbershop and Bunji Garlin fast became the sexiest man on social media last week- at least in the Soca world. Garlin had been an honorary beard gang member for a few years, this after he flew his dreads and started showing off a well groomed beard, complete with grooming equipment and those random tips he shared. Fast forward to the pre-New Year and the beard suddenly lost its length. He’d tamed it and in mere seconds, Garlin became the symbol of sex the ladies love to quip about.

Bunji’s been a symbol of Soca’s male eye candy for years. Even with wife, Fay Ann Lyons on his arm for over a decade, the Viking just can’t keep the ladies from drooling. Now, with a little less facial hair, his swag just went from 80 to 100, in the eyes of many. Bunji’s always on track for the carnival season. Ahead of the upcoming revelry, the lyricist has unleashed several tracks, among them, “See Meh”, “The Fence”, “Raise Them”, “Nah Fail”, “Badang”, “More” and “The Cooler.” Well, we can only guess what’s about to happen when this hitmaker takes the stage… Ladies, you ready?
