When going natural it takes time to get your crown together. It begins with growing out your natural hair and cutting off over processed ends. Your natural hairstyle requires daily moisturizing to keep your tresses hydrated and beautiful.
In this complete guide we cover it all. The types of hair extensions and what to expect from each; as well as how to apply them without damaging your own crown. Some types of natural hair extensions should be avoided. While others are long lasting and worthy of the investment. Naturally, there are many that settle nicely in between, so we point those out too.

Remember that all these ingredients can be added or reduced according to your hair’s need.
