hairLUV Online Community & Diary

In the Summer of 2014, we launched "hairLUV" a web-based hair care management tool sponsored by LUV Naturals.
It is designed to help our customers keep track of their hair maintenance, goals, progress and styles.

We are a warm, supportive community dedicated to inspiration, knowledge and best practices for natural, relaxed and transitioning hair. We embrace members of all hair types.

hairLUV is also a private hair diary system and social learning network.

Membership is currently closed and will reopen sometime in 2015. In the meantime, you can check out my photo albums and profile by clicking here or the image below.

Braidout Braid

Products used: Love Me and Leave In Conditioner

Braided Afro Bohème | by LUV Naturals

Music Inspiration: Ibrahim Ferrer  "Boquiñeñe" 

Dress Destination: Somewhere with lots of sun, beautiful beaches, rich in culture and history to explore.

After wearing my roller set curls for five days, I misted my hair with water, applied a bit of Love Me and Leave In Conditioner to sections while detangling the shed hairs and braided my hair.  I had about seven skinny braids total.  They were tightly but carefully braided to create texture. For me, braid outs aren't always meant to be worn big and loose. Braids can create patterns in the hair and "amp up" any simple style. 

It's pretty easy to switch from loose curls to defined braids using Love Me and Leave In Conditioner because it doesn't coat the hair heavily.  It has just the right amount of oils to seal moisture in, but allows the hair to be re-wet in between washes to change your style.

But it is definitely time for my "hair spa day".  I rarely go longer than 10 days without washing my hair and its been about that long.  The great thing is that since I've styled my hair twice in the past two weeks, many of my shed hairs have been removed.  So my detangling session should be relatively quick since the shed hairs have not been collecting and building up.

Magnetic Roller Set Day Three


Products used: Love Me and Leave In Conditioner

Magnetic Rollers (24 total X-Large) + 3 medium sized for the front curls.


Prepped Out | by LUV Naturals

Music Inspiration: "Too Hot -by  Kool & The Gang" & Olivia Newton John "Magic" (mellow 80's throwbacks!)

Dress Destination: Casual outdoor, sporting event, barbeque, that occasional shopping spree

I'm actually quite surprised my curls have held up this long.  I was supposed to move on and restyle my hair completely today, but decided to do a bonus photo shoot/ look instead. 

In the past, (again this is my first roller set in about a year!) I used "concoctions" on my hair that were a tad bit on the oily side and very heavy. My curls looked great but became limp after the first day.  Fortunately, I have solved this problem.   Our leave in conditioner is light which is the reason why after 3 days I still have soft, but moisturized curls.  Love Me and Leave In Conditioner was specifically designed not to be heavy, waxy and oily so that our customers (and me!) can have better style flexibility.

I could easily mist my hair with water and add a bit more of Love Me and Leave In (if needed) to transform this roller set into a braid out or twist out.  Because of the roller set, my hair is nice and stretched, so detangling shed hairs can be done while re-applying Love Me and Leave In Conditioner.

Magnetic Roller Set Day Two


Products used: Love Me and Leave In Conditioner

Magnetic Rollers (Amazon Affiliate Link) (24 total X-Large) + 3 medium sized rollers for front curls 


Casual Glammed Out | by LUV Naturals

Music Inspiration: "Something In The Way You Are" by Kimbra & "Vixen" by Miguel

Destination: The all day date, nightlife, informal dinner party

Although they've fallen a bit, my curls are still bouncy! This is the perfect time to sweep one's hair to the side.  For day two of my roller set, I used side combs to achieve this look.  To preserve this style, I rolled and tucked my hair up in a satin bonnet the night before.  I'm a little shocked the curls are still quite defined and not smashed which has been the case with roller sets in the past.

Magnetic Roller Set - Day One

Products used: Love Me and Leave In Conditioner

Magnetic Rollers (24 total X-Large) (Amazon Affiliate Link)


Rocked Out | by LUV Naturals

Music Inspiration: Santigold / Karen O "Go!"

Destination: The Concert

This is day one of my magnetic roller set.  I removed the rollers earlier this afternoon (and rocked a crochet hat to my eye doctor appointment), but did not separate the curls until tonight. The curls are very soft, shiny and tightly wound.  I know the curls will fall over time, so it's best to leave them alone to get the most out of my effort.

This is my first (full, all over) roller set in almost a year!  It is my favorite style because it is so easy to achieve by converting two strands twists I've worn all week. 

The bangs are particularly tighter because I used three medium sized rollers in the front.   The secret to a longer lasting roller set is to make the front curls tighter.  Why?  Because you can always pin up the back if it becomes disheveled or sweated out!
