One thing that we absolutely love is natural hair — its versatility, elasticity, durability, and just sheer fabulosity. But every now and then, there’s a dark side to natural hair that can make the creamy crack look appealing. Truth is, it takes a lot to maintain our beautiful, curly/kinky/coily manes. When taming our natural hair becomes too much, we go to these 8 must read natural hair blogs for guidance and support.

Curly Nikki has tons of tips, remedies and natural hairstyles to try. This blog gives a great starting point to the newly naturals who rock TWA (teeny weeny afros).
