Have you been looking for hair extensions that give you a natural look? Here is a great solution with Havana hair. Havana hair is synthetic but looks natural. It's done by latching on the hair, tightly rodding and dipping it in hot water. However, one must be very careful when working with hot water close to the scalp.
As a way of maintenance, this protective style can be washed with tender care , but MUST be towel-dried. This is because the curls change their shape with heat - drying. This hairstyle can last for up to two and a half months with good care.
It takes about three hours to get this look.

As we all know, most people make plans or set goals at the beginning of each year. These resolutions are what keep us motivated. Living a healthy lifestyle should be on top of your list this year. Healthy living includes growing and maintaining healthy natural hair.
Some healthy hair options available are: returning to natural hair, transitional and protective styles, traditional locking, Sisterlocking or even wearing lock extensions permanently or temporarily. All these are healthy hair solutions.
Wishing you all the best in the year 2015. As we all achieve our goals, lets be mindful and celebrate a successful 2015 and share the joy of maintaining healthy natural hair.
Peace and much love,
Your Natural Hair Coach

Happy New Year!
I write this knowing that wherever you are – you are happy, you are loved, you are beautiful!
2013 has ended for all of us and as with every ending, there is a new beginning.
2014 is a year to let go of whatever fear may be stopping us and to truly EXPRESS ourselves! A lesson that 2013 brought me was that emotions are not meant to be fought or hidden, but to be expressed. The same goes with ourselves – our thoughts, our creativity, our personality, our talents, our feelings, wishes, and dreams. We are meant to express all, not only part, of ourselves!
Whether you are about to make the BIG CHOP, let your hair grow out, transition to natural, or cut your locks/Sisterlocks™ into a new do, GO FOR IT! Whatever you feel on the inside, let your hair express it on the outside.
Our hair is one of many ways to express ourselves so if you’re thinking about going for a long walk or a run, taking an art class, perfecting your cooking skills, or spending more time with family, then do it! Don’t just hold the thought in your head, go out and EXPRESS IT!
Taking my own advice for 2014, be on the lookout for more natural hair blogs, workshops and events, as well as new ventures from Natural Hair Journey and the Natural Hair Coach. I’m certainly looking forward to expressing and sharing myself with you this coming year.
Make sure to check in and let me know how you’re expressing yourself and how I can help you make that happen.
Here’s to an Expressive New Year and an Expressive New You!

Did you hear about the woman with the longest locks???
Asha Mandela hasn't cut her hair in over 20 years. And even after "growing through" two heart attacks, cancer, and two strokes, her hair has never fallen out. Check out more about her story here: Longest Locks
Seems like her hair might have been her saving grace. This story shows how truly POWERFUL our connection with our hair can be. It's more than what's on our head, it can represent what is in our hearts and spirits.
Would you ever let your hair grow this long? What do you think of Asha's story?
