How Do I Use These:

I blend a Fresh Whole Aloe Vera Leaf with Organic Coconut Milk in my blender. I put some in a small Tupperware container and freeze the rest. I keep the Tupperware container in the back of the refrigerator to keep it very cold & fresh. Remember, these are all natural ingredients without preservatives and will last maybe a week or two. I use a cotton round to apply this concoction every morning and evening as a Natural Moisturizer after cleansing My face. My skin has never been so happy.

Top 5 Natural Hair Mistakes to Avoid

  1. Tips 1Using Extreme Heat to Straighten Your Hair! Whether it be Flat Irons, a Hot Comb or Blow Dryer, using extreme heat can be permanently damaging to your hair whether it’s Natural or Relaxed. Healthy hair starts burning at around 450°. Make sure you’re using ceramic plated flat irons (for even heat distribution) where you can control the heat temps. Stay away from hot combs/marcel irons as you cannot control the heat temps. In addition, make sure you’re using a Heat Protectant such as Nappturalistic Beauty’s Hair Growth Serum Blend, to help prevent any heat damage to your delicate tresses.

Hot Comb1

  1. Not Trimming Your Hair on a Regular Basis! Just because your hair is natural doesn’t exempt you from getting your ends trimmed regularly. Keeping your ends trimmed regularly helps to prevent split ends. If you don’t trim regularly, those split ends will travel up the shaft of your hair strand, resulting in a head full of damaged hair. You will end up having to cut more of your hair off than with just the initial trim. Don’t wait until you have a head full of damaged hair to try and correct the problem. Trim regularly.


  1. Not Moisturizing & Sealing Regularly! Due to the curly, kinky, coily nature of our Natural Hair, it tends to be drier than other textures. Dry hair can easily become brittle hair that starts breaking off just as fast as it grows. It’s a good practice to Moisturize with a water based moisturizer such as Nappturalistic Beauty’s Moisturizing Hair Milk, & Seal with our Hair Growth Serum Blend, at least a minimum of 3x per week to keep your delicate tresses hydrated and moisturized. The ends of your hair are the oldest, so for the best length retention rate, make sure you focus the M&S on your ends as well.

  1. Wearing Protective Styles 24/7/365! While wearing protective styles are good for length retention and prevention of over manipulation of your hair which may cause damage, doing too much of it can be bad for your hair. It’s okay to wear weaves, wigs, twists and braids, but you need to let your hair and scalp breathe. Hiding/Suffocating your hair and scalp can slow your hair growth and potentially stop it. Think of it like this: If you put a flower in a jar, cover it and come back a couple days later, that flower will be dead right? Well you’re doing the same thing to your hair by consistently hiding it. Stop it!

  1. Being Impatient with the Detangling Process! Yes, we all know that detangling natural hair can be a chore. However, once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature. But you MUST be patient or else you’ll end up causing unnecessary breakage and damage to your tresses. After shampooing your hair, saturate your hair with a conditioner with lots of slip such as Nappturalistic Beauty’s Buttery Almond Moisturizing Deep Conditioner, Then start detangling your hair with a wide tooth comb, starting from the ends, slowing working your way to your roots. Check out this video that shows you how to easily detangle your hair in minutes:



~Tips To Achieve That Perfect Braid Out~


Click Here to Watch Video:

A Braidout is the perfect Heat Free Style for Naturals and those that are Transitioning from Relaxer to Natural. Braidouts are great for Stretching your Hair (elongating to prevent shrinkage) and giving your hair nice Beautiful, Bouncy Waves.

Here are a Few Tips to Help You Achieve the Best Braidout:

1). Start with Clean, Freshly Washed and Conditioned Hair. Dirty hair will make your hair look dull and will lack shine.

2). Use a leave in such as Nappturalistic Beauty’s Hydrating Daily Leave In Conditioner on damp (not soaking wet) hair to give your hair moisture and prepare your hair for styling. Follow up with an oil such as our Hair Growth Serum Blend to seal moisture in. Now, you’ve just Moisturized and Sealed your Hair.

3). Part your hair in sections, making sure to part it in the direction you want your hair style to fall (very important). For example, I parted a section for my bangs, then put my hair in four sections (2 on top and 2 on the bottom).

4). Use a water based styling butter such as Nappturalistic Beauty’s Whipped Moisturizng Hair Butter on each section of hair. Use a wide tooth comb to comb thru each section before braiding.

5). For more wavy definition, use smaller braids. To get fluffy waves, use larger braids. I put 8 braids in each separate section of my hair.

6). Allow hair to completely dry (either air dry or under a hooded dryer). Use an oil such as Nappturalistic Beauty’s Hair Growth Serum Blend on your braids before gently taking the braids down to prevent frizz and add shine. Carefully separate each braid to your desired fullness. If there are any parts, use a pick to gently lift at your roots.

7). VERY IMPORTANT: Allow your hair to dry completely before taking your braids down. If you hair isn’t completely dry, the end result will be frizzy, undefined hair.

8). At night, add a bit of Nappturalistic Beauty’s Moisturizing Hair Milk and then smooth on our Hair Growth Serum Blend to seal in that moisture.

9). Twist your hair into large chunky twists before putting on your satin cap.

And here you have it!!! Follow these simple steps and you’ll achieve and experience the Perfect Braidout EVERYTIME!!
