  6. Hello, GFC Follower NaturalHairLatina, Twitter @LatinaR. Nov 09-BC May 2010, chemical free was better for my health. I cleanse my scalp with an baking soda paste I make. I rinse with a Rosemary Tea water. I currently like the Nature’s Gate aloe vera (daily) conditioner. I use a leave in detangler from nuNAAT Karite Special.

    My go to style is simple twist, wash & go or my Afro. I achieve look by starting with hair sectioned in 8 twist, let air dry. I love the versatility of natural hair and freedom of the mental awaking and clarity to see things with a more positive perspective Natural hair change my perception of beauty. I learned to accept me as I am.The best way to learn about Natural hair write your own story in a journal. Natural is separating truth from fiction, Thankk You
