Is your hair HIGH, NORMAL or LOW porosity?
I am Winney from Lovingkinkycurls.com
This is my story
I transitioned from relaxing my hair to natural in June 2015.
I knew very little about taking good care of hair. I tried everything and bought every single product that was recommended to me by fellow naturals. Unfortunately, not everything worked. I had a longing to understand the science of hair and why supposedly ‘African hair doesn’t grow long!’
By reading books, experimenting and simply learning from others, I have been able to create a routine that has worked very well for my hair. It did not happen overnight, I took time to understand my hair (what it loves and what it doesn’t.)
Why Loving Kinky Curls?
My focus is discovering, experimenting and creating natural homemade hair care products and sharing the recipes to help women transition their DAMAGED/RELAXED Afro/4C hair back to natural, ON A BUDGET!
I understand you may not have the time to actually follow every one of these recipes and therefore, I do have a section where I help you select the best natural products for your hair. I document the journey of selecting a particular product, try it where possible or simply walk you the journey to help you make a decision, even if I don’t use the product.
We all have unique hair and so what works for me may not work for you, but you can only find out if you have the right information and do some experimenting.
In addition to sharing hair care recipes, I share useful content that will help women of African descent understand their hair and develop simple, easy to follow hair care routines.

For purposes of understanding my point of reference, on the hair grading systems, my hair falls in the 4C Hair category. Many African women have type 4 hair in general but there are such great variations on the type 4 hair scale alone that I personally use the term 4C hair loosely, so that you understand broadly what I mean when I describe my hair type.
Otherwise, whilst I reference to 4C hair (only because it’s the hair type I have most experience in) the information in this blog is broadly for afro-textured/kinky/coily hair type.
Growing your hair doesn’t have to be an hectic or expensive journey, it should be as simple and as affordable possible.
