About Naturalicious Hair
My name is Terez Howard. I wrote all of the articles here at Naturalicious Hair. My goal is to provide other naturals with a comprehensive resource and thorough guide to caring for their natural hair.
When I comb the Internet for information on natural hair, I find an abundance. My aim is to consolidate that abundance of information on my website, serving you with naturalicious hair tips, products and guides in an organized way.
My website is designed so that you can easily click on a category in the right side panel and find a list of articles in that category.
Keep coming back because I will be updating regularly with more information to help your hair look naturalicious!
Unlike most black girls, I have never had a relaxer. Don’t think that I was enlightened to the wonders of natural hair at a young age because I wasn’t. Instead, my kinky, coily, tightly shrunken hair was straightened with a blow dryer, smoothed with a pressing comb and smoothed again with a curling iron. Every week, my mother and then later I spent hours making my hair look “presentable.”
Back in the spring of 2006, I came home from a long day at the newspaper, and I dreaded spending several hours straightening my hair. There has got to be a better way, I said to myself.
I spent the next couple days researching and found a huge online community of ladies rocking natural black hair. I could not wait to start trying out natural hair styles. I started with two-strand twists and tried just about every style I admired. Twist outs, braids, braid outs, Bantu knots, Bantu knot outs, afro hair styles, wash and wear, roller sets, cornrows, flat twists, you name and I tried it.
My hair grew longer than it had ever grown before. But I felt stuck in a comfort zone of styling options. During the winters, I wore two strand twists and a week-long twist out. During the summer, I wore a curly afro puff. That was about it.
Then, I discovered Sisterlocks. I was locked on Oct. 29, 2010 after 13 hours and two consultants in my head. It has been an exciting journey.
Today, I use my background in journalism and writing to give other naturals the encouragement and information needed to be proud of their natural hair. My motto is:
Good hair is healthy hair.
