Mommies! Here are a few tips to taming your little one’s tendrils.
BEGIN AT THE BOWL: Many mommies have adopted the curly girl method of combing through their little one’s shampoo, which is an excellent prep for tangled curls. Use a wide tooth comb and gently massage in the shampoo, first. Add a dollop of conditioner to further soften curls and comb from the ends to roots. This makes for an easier detangle later on.

Fellas, we know that you don’t want to fuss in the bathroom for longer than five minutes. We understand. We really do. However, you can’t be that debonair gent with face full of pimples. Check out this simple regimen for great skin using products from the curlBOX Man edition!
What: Removes oil, dirt and sweat from the skin.
Why: Cleansing is the simplest step, but also the most important. With the day to day hustle of, dirt and sweat tend to make nice little homes in our pores. Men’s skin tends to oilier than that of female skin, so cleansing twice a day is must (day and evening).
How: Gently massage with fingertips. Towels can be too abrasive.

If Myleik likes it, we love it. While the boss lady has been tiptoeing all over the States and beyond, she’s picked up a few new favs. Check ‘em out.
1. “Avalanche” by Quadron
This is just an absolutely AMAZING album. It’s worth buying. It’s worth a listen. I just love her voice and the great production. And there’s a track with Kendrick Lamar – “Better Off” … AMAZE!
2. iBooks App
I know I’m SO late to the party with this. I’ve always known that you could buy books and read them on the iPad but I stopped toting my Pad around nearly a year ago. While I was on vacation, this woman I met told me about this MUST READ book and I kept wondering how I was going to read it right away. Ummmm … iBooks! I downloaded to the iPhone immediately. I thought reading books on my phone would drive me nuts. It does NOT! Now I can have my books with me all of the time and read them whenever because I ALWAYS have my phone. Joy! Read More…
Some like it dirty.
It’s no secret that day three or four hair is absolutely magical. Something comes over your curls and they just seem to spiral perfectly. Though we know that old hair styles better, there’s a theory that “dirty” natural hair also grows faster, which is absolutely a case by case situation. For some, a dirty scalp leads to inflammation, which can lead to thinning and baldness. However, other curlies swear by a once a month wash or less frequent shampooing.

Are we the sexier texture? The fact that men walk up on unsuspecting curlies on the street to get a mere graze of their curls may prove so.
But what is it exactly that’s so sexy about natural hair? “You’re not afraid to be yourself,” proclaimed one of our guy friends. Not that weaved or straight-haired hotties don’t turn heads, but there is something sensual about embracing your God-given hair. There’s no veil, just you.
Weigh in. Are naturals sexier?
