 Featured Naturalista: Benita Andrews


Hey Guys! Its a real pleasure featuring Benita as this week's Naturalista. Benita Andrews is the owner of the natural hair care product boutique Frize' Boutique. Enjoy her story below:

Where are you from?
Savannah, GA

What’s something we wouldn't know by looking at you?
I owner of a natural hair product boutique by the name of Frize' Boutique www.frizeboutique.com




How long have you been natural? I've been natural since 2009.


Did you do the Big Chop or did you transition to natural hair and When?
I transitioned for a little over as year and then I big chopped in 2011.

Did you have a support system?
Not at all. By the third day I was regretting the big chop big time with no one to cry to!


What is more important to you - Hair Length or Hair Health?
Hair health is more important to me. Having long hair isn't doing you any good if it's not healthy.

What are some of your favorite natural hair products?
I have two staple products and I absolutely love both of them. I sell both products in my boutique. ATON's Natty products (Natty Butter, Natty Mist and Natty Moist) and Coco Curls Moisturizing Créme.


What is your natural hair regimen?
The longest I go without washing my hair is two weeks. I detangle with Natty Moist. I'm not married to a particular shampoo but my conditioner must be a moisturizing one. I usually use more Natty Moist and cover my head for about 30 Minutes before rinsing. My final rinse is a concoction of cold distilled water and ACV. I will then two strand twist my hair using either of my favorite products.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering to go natural or a newly natural sista? Do your research. This is a journey...trial and error. Don't get hung up on those videos on YouTube. Your hair might not look like that the first time out of the gate (or ever)...theirs didn't either. Buy quality products, not just those products "because she uses them".

Where can we find you?
You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and my website at www.frizeboutique.com

DIY Moisturizing Leave-in Spray for Natural Hair

DIY Moisturizing Leave-in Spray for Natural HairGoing down the natural hair aisle at the beauty supply store can sometimes give us a real headache when we see the prices. Does natural hair products need to be this expensive? Does it have to be this hard to find a good moisturizing leave-in spray without breaking my pocket? The answer is no. You can make your own DIY moisturizing leave-in spray for your natural hair with ingredients that you probably already have in your house. 

Words of Encouragement

Hey Loves!

A few days ago I was very down on myself and needed some encouragement. My boyfriend sent me the following words to uplift my spirits and it did.  I feel like it will help some one too so please read below.

Me: God can I ask you a question?
God: Sure
Me: Promise u won't get mad

God: I promise
Me: Why did u let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,
God:Huummmm...
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....
God: All right
Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let you…

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
