How to Maintain Natural Black Hair
For a woman of color, choosing to keep her hair natural is an extremely personal decision. She may do it for any number of reasons, including religious beliefs and deep-rooted convictions, political reasons or simply a preference for natural look.

Finding the proper hair care routine can be tricky, but some basic guidelines are adaptable to every natural black hair care routine.
