So… maybe you are “transitioning” your hair to 100% all natural (no chemical relaxers or excessive heat). Or, maybe you did the big chop and have a TWA (teeny weeny afro). Whatever the reason, you’re “new” to natural hair, here are 6 resources to know about!
1) Curly Nikki.

This website is an excellence resource for anyone getting started with natural hair! There is entire sections on transitioning, hair products, reviews, styling tips, and even a glossary of natural hair buzz words, and so much more! Curly Nykki is a very cool site to check out. You’ll definitely learn something! There’s also a forum where you can interact with other natural beauties.
2) Kimmay Tube.

Definitely had to include KIMMAY TUBE’s YouTube channel in this list for newbies. Talk about a wealth of information, for newbie and advanced natural hair heads alike. You’ll love Kim Love’s detailed tutorials on hairstyles and even the science and understand of the makeup of the hair follicle. She’s very detailed about this topic. She shows and tells you, and her videos are often very creative & entertaining. Check her out for sure!
3) Curl Mart.

I recommend this website because it has all of the natural hair products out today on one website. So it’s a great resource for that alone, just to find out what types of products are out there for natural hair. You can also purchase products and have them conveniently shipped to your home. But please also check out my blog post on “Places to Buy Natural Hair Products and Saving Money Tips.”
4) MHE Magazine.
