Welcome to NHP! So listen...
Don't you wish natural hair products and Type 4 hair care information was made easier to understand?
When you look online though, many natural Black hair "experts" create confusion because they know if you never master your natural journey you'll always come back to their videos to try the next "new" trick.
Many (not all, but MANY) natural hair Youtube channels exaggerate the benefits of certain techniques & natural hair products because they are being paid to do so, and this is the information that you are left to base your hair-care decisions on.

It leaves you to make your hair care regimen and curly hair product buying decisions based on exaggerated benefits with little or no knowledge of the hidden costs (to your hair/scalp), drawbacks, and less costly alternatives.
And instead of sharing the untold hidden truths of proper Black hair care and hair porosity with you that will save you time and money, many simply want to become an "influencer", because that's where the money is...
So if you've been making your hair care decisions based solely on the most popular influencers, guess who's been benefiting the most from your decisions? The Influencers!
NHP give you the goods all-in-one-place. Of course you could take the time to tirelessly research every single hair care decision that comes up ... but who has time for that?!
A more practical solution is to find a trusted source (someone who does not have a vested interest in becoming a popular YouTube influencer) who exposes the exaggerated benefits for what they are, and who helps you to become fully aware of the hidden costs, drawbacks, and less costly alternatives.
And that's why:
I listen to YOU. We give smart surveys to women just like you in order to find out the REAL PROBLEMS and find REAL SOLUTIONS.
One of our main goals at NHP is to introduce you to great DIY natural hair solutions & hair growth oil recipes that we've created for you, natural hair products like...
I won't throw the typical Youtuber advice at you, I won't lie and tell you that you need a whole product line by a specific brand at outrageous prices just to achieve a certain look, moisturize your hair, stop Black hair breakage or promote natural hair growth,
In addition to providing real, long-term solutions to your natural Black hair needs, the hair care advice on this site also attempts to expose exaggerated benefits for what they are, and alert you to ALL of the more effective and less costly alternatives that most Instagram and Youtube "gurus" don't include in their hair tutorials.
The goal of this type 4 hair information is not to portray Youtube hair influencers as being bad folks (they are just doing their jobs)...
...nor is the goal to get you to buy certain natural hair products and services while turning down others.
The REAL GOAL IS:
To help women who are going natural, to have your hair looking and feeling amazing.
To make you fully aware of common Black hair care mistakes, like...
...believing you're protein sensitive, when you're really not.
And showing you how to stop...
...following cookie-cutter advice that can cause you to make big natural hair mistakes.
You can make decisions that will serve your best interests instead of those whose main goal is getting Youtube views.

I've always had a passion for natural Black beauty and felt pain seeing women suffer, bamboozled into believing that their beauty was less than, and that their natural hair was not an option if they wanted to look pretty.
Since the 90's I have been preaching that when Black women EMBRACE their natural selves, they will open up pandora's box for never-ending self-confidence, brilliant beauty and a fascinatingly majestic presence that can OWN any room they enter.
And it has proven to be true.
I want to help you get your hands on:
You can have REAL hair health, REAL hair growth and look REALLY fierce in the cutest natural hairstyles! And we evev have some good info for the fellas in our Black men's hair care section.
So welcome to NHP, dive in!
