A beautiful celebration of natural hair by photographer and author Michael July. These beautiful afros are an inspiration; no more relaxers or harsh chemicals. Zelo encourages healthy natural hair, giving you the power to choose between full curls, and on a day where you want less volume, smooth hair. So enjoy your natural hair! Nurture it, care for it, and respect it.
Finding the right products can be tough, many brands with endless and complicated ingredient lists that we can’t even understand. So how do you know what to look for? For starters, you always want to go for a Salt and Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. Salt and Sulfate free hair products are less damaging to your hair, they don’t dry your hair out or strip your color like regular shampoos. You can find Zelo’s Salt and Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner on our website here http://ow.ly/mNVCT.
Another great tip, is to use a thermo protector on your hair. Your skin isn’t the only part of your body that needs protection from the summer heat and UV rays. The Velvet Gloss is a great buy that not only protects your hair from harmful UV rays, but also shines, detangles, and prevents split ends. Dreaming of natural hair? Check out all the natural hair below and get inspired!

No doubt, keratin has been one of the best kept secrets for African American hair, and with that comes a lot of questions. Is it like a relaxer? Is it permanent? What will it do for my natural, afro, relaxed, mixed, curly, or kinky texture? As an African American myself who is transitioning from relaxed to natural and also has about 5 different textures of hair on her head (lol), I’m going to do my best to address these question/concerns right now.

Manhattan is one of the most fabulously fashionable cities I have ever seen, and I’ve seen my fair share of fashionable cities.

This Zelo blogger got to take to the streets of New York City this week, and, like the ladies of Paris wearing their hair in top knots and messy chignon’s, New Yorkers are braving the chill in these easy breezy up-dos as well.
