Caring for Fine Natural Hair is Easy When You Know How

As of 2013, I’ve been natural for over 10 years. I’ve learned a lot of tips and tricks to care for my 3C/4A typed naturally curly hair. In the process, I’ve also discovered a ton of styling tips for fine natural hair like mine and have so much fun styling it.

I figured it’s high time to start pulling the articles I’ve written about my fine natural hair together in one place to make it easier for you to find. This is by no means an exhaustive list of the articles I’ve written so to view additional articles, I’ve linked the Hair category at the bottom of this page but you can also check out articles written in the specific categories: Fine Hair Styling | Fine Hair Care | DIY Hair.
