When we first began our natural haircare transition and journey together, my daughter and I were OBSESSED with YOUTUBE tutorials, blogs, vlogs, style demonstrations and tips for naturalistas. We LITERALLY spent HOURS watching these videos and reading articles. lol. It was fun…and educational.

This type of washing avoids harsh results from frequent washing with shampoos that contain detergents like sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate, and helps to keep natural black hair soft and manageable. Here’s a great YOUTUBE video by DelightfulJOY that demonstrates the process:
