On Saturday 31 march, London held a natural hair workshop presented by hair expert Felicia Leatherwood.
For several years, Felicia has been running hair workshops in partnership with haircare brands. Those workshops are coaching sessions for women who wish to review the basics of maintaining their afro hair.
Shampoo: every 7 to 10 days, wash your hair 3 times to ensure your hair will be clean, always use a conditioner. Trim: trim your hair every 10 weks, cut half an inch. Blow your hair out before cutting them. Put a heat protective before blow out. Dandruff : apply a anti-dandruff shampoo on dry scalp before washing. Hairline : one of the best product to grow the hair line is “Jamaican black castor oil” or “organic roots stimulator”
Jane Carter, creator of the brand Jane Carter Solution was also attending to explain how to use her poducts. This workshop was really interesting, Felicia give us many useful tips that we never thought about before. She also made us discover good brands such as Shea moisturize, Jane Carter Solutions.

Sold at Sephora and Macy’s, Carol’s Daughter is natural brand that made a splash in the United States. Without Paraben, mineral oil or sodium laurel sulfate. It is very moisturizing for the hair. The only downside, the smell is very strong and much too earthy.

For very dry, frizzy or relaxed hair
There are thousands of combs, brushes, styling products, conditioners for our coarse hair.
In my opinion none is up to TangleTeezer brush. It gently and deeply untangles your hair.
Easy to use, it is perfect for the impatients, comforters and toddlers.
Plastic and round shape, this brush looks more like a toy. However, its innovation and efficiency have enabled the creator to patent it.
All women with coarse hair should have it in their beauty kit. This would avoid some practices as confusing straightening with disentangling…
