How to Keep Your Sponge Coils Moisturized

Sponge coils is a natural hairstyle created by using a sponge and a styling cream or gel to coil the natural hair. Sponge coils are an easier way to create a coiled natural hairstyle without having to coil each individual hair strand. After you have styled your hair in sponge coils, you will need to regularly moisturize your hair. Follow these steps to learn how to keep your sponge coils soft and hydrated.



1. Use a water-based spray or cream instead of a butter or oil. A creamy spray like Alba Botanica Hawaiian Leave-in Conditioning Mist Drink It Up Coconut Milk will be better at adding moisture to your hair than a thick butter. A water-based spray is easier to apply and it adds water to your hair and seals it in for longer-lasting moisture.

You can also make your own spray. Simply add 1/2 cup of distilled or bottle water, 1/2 cup of aloe vera juice, and 1/4 cup of your favorite oil like olive oil, grape seed oil, or avocado oil to a spray bottle. Keep refrigerated.


2. Sleep on a satin or silk pillow case. Sleeping on a satin pillow case will protect your hair, while also preventing it from being flattened down by a scarf or sleeping cap. Just make sure you do not apply your moisturizer before you go to bed or else the oil from your hair will seep into the pillow case. To avoid this, moisturize your hair in the morning.

3. Massage your scalp regularly. Massaging your scalp will help it secrete its natural oil, sebum. This will keep your scalp from getting dry or irritated. You can also dilute an essential oil in a carrier oil use it in your massage. Some good essential oil choices are lavender, rosemary, or tea tree essential oil.

How to do a Straw Set for 4c Natural Hair

A Straw Set is an ideal hairstyle for women with 4b or 4c hair that is tightly coiled. A straw set can be done on short to medium hair to provide a curly haired look similar to Shirley Temple curls. Watch these two tutorials to learn how to create a straw set on your natural hair and then read the tips below.

Tutorial #1 - The Chic Natural



Tutorial #2 - Vee Pee Jay



How To Create A Straw Set on Natural Hair

Materials You Will Need:
  • Bobby pins
  • Staws (cut in half) - available at Target and most grocery stores
  • Styling cream or jelly
  • Wide tooth comb
Tips for Creating A Straw Set
  1. Choose a good styling or holding cream. The stronger the hold, the more defined your curls will be. Look for a styling cream that smooths your hair and gives it shine.
  2. Leave your straw set in for 2 days before taking it down. If you style your hair over the weekend, leave the staw set in for 2-3 days so that it will be defined when you take it down.
  3. Part your hair in small to medium sized sections when styling. The smaller the sections, the more volume your hair will have when finished.
  4. Style your hair when it is wet. This will ensure curl definition and smoothness.
**If you have thinning edges: apply an all natural holding gel like Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Souffle, Qhemet Biologics Honeybush Tea Soft Gel, or California Baby Jelly Mousse to your edges and brush them back gently with a SOFT bristled tooth brush. You can also wear a silk scarf or headband. (Note: All of these gels provide a very soft hold)

How To Create Bantu Knots on 4c Natural Hair


A Bantu Knot Out are strands of hair that are twirled and wrapped in a circular motion and later unwrapped to create a loose, somewhat springy hair texture. Bantu Knot Outs are ideal for 4c hair as they create a coil look on hair that does not have a promiment curl pattern when dry.

Bantu Knot Outs can be styled into an afro puff, a mohawk, or an up do. Follow these tips from Black Hair Information to create a Bantu Knot Out on 4c, short natural hair and then watch the video tutorials for additional help.

Tips for Styling Bantu Knots with 4c Natural Hair

1. Section size determines curl size - The more sections you have the curlier your hair will be and the larger the section the wavier you hair will be. 

2. Moisture levels – For some reason Bantu knots work better when the hair is at least slightly wet and moisturized but not soaking wet. Let you hair air dry first or use a blow dryer on a cool/warm setting before twisting. Moisturize your hair with a hair spritz that contains water. You can also make your own by mixing together a little Aloe Vera Juice and water in a spray bottle.

3. Make sure your hair is smooth – Use a Denman brush if necessary but make sure your hair is smooth and the product is spread evenly throughout the section before twisting. 

4. Use a styler – Aint nothing wrong with a little hold! So pick out your best styler and use it on each section. Holding creams are probably a little better than hardcore gels, but it really depends on what works best on your hair. Put the styler on your hair first then follow up with a dime size amount of gel before twisting.

5. Air Dry – Air dry your hair if possible, it will take longer but the results are well worth it. Still a hooded dryer or a bonnet dryer are also really great in a pinch because they use gentle diffuse heat rather than direct heat. But make sure to wait until your hair is completely dry before unraveling the knots.

Everything You Need To Know About Sponge Coils

 Video Tutorial How to Create Coils with Sponge

Sponge Coils are single strand curls created by using a sea foam sponge. Sponge coils are a professional hairstyle that can be styled on a short afro or a teeny weenie afro (TWA) for a curly look. Sponge coils are also ideal for women with 4c natural hair to create a coil pattern.

Where to Purchase a Sponge

You can purchase a sea foam sponge at your local convenience store like CVS or Walgreens. You can also find sea foam sponges at Target or any store that sells spa beauty products. 

Tips for Selecting a Sponge

1. Make sure it's soft - Select a sea foam sponge that is soft to the touch, yet firm. A soft sponge ensures that you will not snag or cause breakage to your hair while styling into sponge coils.

2. Make sure it's medium sized - Picking too small of a sponge will make the styling process slower while too large of a sponge will be harder to hold during styling. Choose a medium size sponge that fits easily in your palm.

3. Make sure it's holes are medium sized - The size of the holes in the sponge will determine the tightness of your sponge coils. Small holes will create tight coils, large holes will create looser coils.

Creating Your Own Sponge


To create your own sea foam sponge you will need: scissors, a marker, and a sponge.

1. Use the marker to draw small circles on your sponge. Remember: the smaller the circles, the tighter your coils will be, the larger the circles, the looser your coils will be.
2. Using your scissors, cut holes into the sponge where the circles are drawn.
3. Your sponge is ready to use.

Styling Natural Hair in Sponge Coils


Products you will need...
  • sea foam sponge - to create the coils
  • hair spritz/spray - to moisturize the hair and add hold
  • styler/holding cream - to condition & provide hold
  • hair gel - to provide hold
1. Moisturize your hair with a hair spritz that contains water. You can also make your own by mixing together a little Aloe Vera Juice and water in a spray bottle.

2. Condition your hair with a styler then follow up with a dime size amount of gel. You can also use the hair gel by itself.

3. Rub the sponge onto your hair in a clockwise motion covering the whole circumference of your head. You should see coils appear.

My Curly Hair Was Holding Me Back at Work

Read this reflective story about Sabrina's journey with natural hair in the workplace.
photo courtesy of naturallycurly.com


by Sabrina Perkins of Naturally Curly

When I first went natural I was terrified of going out into the world with my new hair. It was my own hair but there was no straightening, wig, or weave to cover my curly texture.
It was just me.
I was received with welcome arms from most, but I did notice the silent stares by others. Despite that, I can honestly say I was treated no differently. Then, I switched jobs and it was like going from day to night. My immediate supervisor (who did not hire me, by the way) made it known that she did not like my curly/coily hair. The few times I would straighten my hair she would shower me with “ooohs” and “ahhhs” and “it’s so pretty this way.”
The last time I wore it straight to the office, she went so far to say, “it’s professional when you wear it straight and you should keep it this way.” I was stunned, infuriated, and high-tailed it to the ladies room to ruin my style with water and my spray bottle. Needless to say, it was the beginning of the end for that job and yes, there were other problems but the main problem was me not being accepted as me.
My story is far from an anomaly. I have heard of curly-haired women being told they would not be taken seriously with curly hair. I've also heard of students at colleges being told they would have to straighten their hair to land a job and natural-hair women being told their hair was nappy and inappropriate at work or school. It’s appalling and downright offensive since none of those instances required a particular hairstyle for those women to perform their jobs well.It’s unfortunate that some companies, professionals, or individuals feel that straight hair on a woman is considered professional. They feel that straight-hair employees will be seen as serious, job-worthy, and smarter. So, what does that say about all curly-headed employees? It says just the opposite.
Curly hair is fun, cute, fashionable, and flirty. It’s how you wear your hair for your wedding, prom, and even your gym ID. This long-standing categorization of hairstyles is an outdated one. Just as the baseless saying “blondes have more fun” needs to be retired, the negative curly-hair classification needs to disappear as well.
When it comes to afro-texture hair, women are being deemed unprofessional or even worse…intimidating and threatening. Despite how shallow and unfounded these labels are, it does not change the fact that some women are being treated unfairly due to their hair textures.
What You Can Do About It
I’m tired of the stories I read online and hear in conversations about curly-hair women who have fallen victim to scrutiny. It’s not fair and yes, I’m aware life is not fair but to value a person according to the way their hair curls has to change. Now, there are some women who fall victim to their own self-inflicted insecurities and I have personally witnessed many black women suffer from this affliction. Feeling that even stepping out of their perception of professionalism is not worth the negative backlash. Well, I say step out because if you do your job, handle your business, and are professional, not only will you excel but you will be setting an example that may reshape the perceptions of those around you.
Your hair has nothing to do with it. There are natural and curly-hair anchorwomen, judges, and attorneys. There are curly and natural-hair doctors, teachers, and civil servants. They exist and we just need to support them. Every job has an HR department so it may be time for a sit down if a curly-hair or natural-hair woman feels heat from a supervisor or co-worker about her hair. It may be a hard walk to take, but the problem is with them and not you. Don’t allow someone else’s perception of you to define you or hold you back. And don't allow others to belittle the issue with the “it’s only hair" comment. That is precisely the point.

I agree wholeheartedly with Sabrina; your natural hair should NOT be a determining point at an interview or in the workplace. 
What would you say to Sabrina about her experiences?

Getting a Job with Natural Hair

               image
Having natural hair while applying for a position can bring up questions like: What will my employer think of my hair? Will I look unprofessional? And if you are applying to work in a restaurant setting you may ask: Will customers think my hair is dirty or unsanitary? Such questions and worries can cloud your mind and make you anxious about applying. However, there are some solutions!

Your natural hair is an extension of yourself, not who you are. The employer should be interested in YOU as a person and what you have to offer (i.e. your skills, work-ethnic), not the hair on your head. That being said, let’s take a look at some helpful tips as you job search.

1. Find a professional hairstyle that works for you. When it comes to styling your hair, it is easy to feel like there are few options. Natural hair, however, is versatile! Wear your hair in an afro puff, twists out, or in a cinnabun up-do

2. Dress professionally. A nice pair of slacks (dress pants) paired with a top, always works. Create your professional look: Visit My Fair Hair's Natural Hair & Style Lookbook 

                               image
3. Wear your hair in an up-do or protective hairstyle. Style your hair by tucking and pinning it with bobby pins to avoid tangles or shedding while you work. Styles like the donut bun or the cinnabun are ideal. You can also create a up-do hairstyle from a twist out. Protective hairstyles like havana twists and yarn twists/braids are great options as well.

3 Ways to Naturally Dye or Lighten Hair using Henna, Cinnamon, and Honey

Try coloring your hair for a new look this year. Here are three ways you can naturally dye or lighten your hair for a professional look. Thank you to lovenaturalsunshine for sharing these tips!
Henna, cinnamon, and honey treatments are three ways to dye and lighten hair naturally. Henna is created from flowers that have been ground into a fine powder. Adding warm water and oil to Henna creates a paste that can be used to color hair.
Quick facts about Henna…
  • Henna can color light-colored hair
  • Henna cannot lighten the color of black hair
  • Henna should only be mixed with warm water
  • Different types of Henna can be mixed to create different colors
Types of Henna…
  • Black Henna (indigo)
  • Red Henna (henna)
  • Neutral Henna (senna)
Cinnamon and honey lighten hair naturally over time. Although cinnamon and honey may not give immediate results, they are great alternatives to chemical-laced dye products. The following recipes may have to be repeated over time for results.
Cinnamon Hair Lightener Recipe via thefusionchronicles
3-4 tablespoons of ground Cinnamon
½ cup of Hair Conditioner (pick your favorite!)
½ cup of Extra Virgin Olive oil (or your favorite oil)
Juice of one Lemon
Separate hair into 4-6 twists. Wet hair. Apply mixture to each twist. Put on a plastic shower cap. Leave mixture in hair for 5-8 hours or overnight. Rinse and wash as normal.
Honey Hair Lightener Recipe via ehow.com
1 tablespoon of Honey
1 cup of warm water
1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive oil
Let mixture sit for 30 min. This will allow the natural hydrogen peroxide in honey to activate; this lightens the hair. Separate hair into 4-6 twists. Wet hair. Apply mixture to each twist. Put on a plastic shower cap. Leave mixture in hair for 5-8 hours or overnight. Spend at least one hour in the sunlight with mixture in hair. Rinse and wash as normal.
