Dear Readers,
As we move through our life experiences, we sometimes can’t help feeling overwhelmed. Everything—from financial challenges to relationship issues—can
prove to be quite daunting. And the pressures surrounding these challenges and
issues can lead us to feel anxiety, stress, even fear. When these feelings begin to
build, it’s important to realize that God is in and around every situation, as well
as in us. Even though we may feel that a particular concern is bigger than we
are, it isn’t—and never will be—bigger than God. When you seem to be in one
of life’s valleys, it’s a good time to hold on to your faith and let the worry go.
When we let go, we create a space for the Christ spirit to come in. After allowing
this to happen, we can shift from a place of vulnerability to a place of strength.
We can turn within, where the Christ spirit dwells, and know that through His
Grace the answers will come and the battles will be won. In my own life, I have
witnessed how God has corrected my course and enabled me to overcome some
incredibly intense situations. I simply had to be open and receptive to Him. Doing
this allowed Him to not only cover me but to lift me up to a level from which I
could move forward. Always know that you can overcome challenging situations.
You deserve joy and happiness in your life. Through Grace and God’s unconditional love you are worthy, you are blessed and you are destined for greatness.
Peace & Blessings,

Hi Dr. Maclin, I really learn a lot from reading your articles in Hype Hair magazine. I am transitioning from a relaxer that I have had for over 20 years to the
natural state. However, there are times that I may want a straight, longer hair
look, so I am considering a weave. What is the most important information
that I should know before I get a weave?
Great question as I get lots of women that grow out their relaxed hair back to its natural state but occasionally want a straight, longer hair look or different style. It’s really
important to find a good weave stylist, as the application process is very critical and must
be properly done to avoid hair loss or scalp issues. Get a few referrals from friends and
evaluate their weaves. Next, select quality hair for weaving, and also get a protective hair
net to take with you to the appointment. I highly suggest avoiding glue adhesive to apply
your weave, due to potential medical issues of allergic contact dermatitis to chemicals in
the glue, so go for a sew-in.
Since you have all natural hair, to avoid wear and tear on your own hair, get a full closure sew-in weave. Please make sure to start with clean and well conditioned hair prior to
getting your hair braided. As your stylist is cornrowing your hair, please let them know to
loosen up if they are braiding too tightly to avoid tension alopecia. This type of alopecia is
usually non-scarring, so the hair is able to grow back, but permanent hair loss can result
from scarring in those areas from excessive pulling on hair follicles. The protective hair
net over fully braided hair is also a great way to reduce direct tension on your hair follicles
as the weave is sewed on to the net.
Once you have your weave applied, proper care is important to preserve your hair and
to reduce future hair issues. Wrap the hair up at bedtime. It is also important to do a
weekly cleaning of your weaved hair with a gentle shampoo.
Remove the weave and have your cornrows unbraided to get a more thorough cleansing
of the scalp and hair at least every four weeks. If you leave your weave in longer, there are
risks of pulling on your hair follicles from new hair growth, and excess yeast buildup on
the scalp from not being able to cleanse hair properly while braided.
If you are experiencing hair thinning or want your hair to grow longer and stronger
while wearing a weave, get started with BellaNutri supplement, which contains special
marine proteins and collagen that stimulate your hair roots from within. Check out BellaNutri at bellanutri.com or call toll-free 811-711-HAIR (4247). As the dermatologist-developer, I am happy to help guide you while taking BellaNutri.
I am a 33-year-old single mom with a one-year-old baby girl, and I’m very
stressed. I have always had thick, naturally curly hair but as the months
pass since delivering my baby, my hair is getting thinner. I am not sure if it
is due to the stress of being a new single mom or from the pregnancy. I took
prenatal vitamins during pregnancy and a few friends said that I should start
taking them again to help my thinning hair. What’s your advice?
It is more likely that your hair loss is a result of post-pregnancy rather than the stress of
new motherhood. During pregnancy, the majority of your hair roots remain in the actively
growing stage instead of transitioning to the normal resting hair stage where the hair is
supposed to shed. Therefore, during the nine months of pregnancy, the average of 100
hairs a day that were supposed to come out, did not, so hair looked thicker and fuller.
Within a few months of having your baby, the hair that was supposed to come out now
starts to shed because the hormone levels get back in balance. The prenatal vitamins that
you took during pregnancy provided your body with essential nutrients for the healthy
growth of your baby. Therefore, restarting prenatal vitamins will not help your hair get
thicker or grow faster.
Get started with BellaNutri hair supplement which contains unique marine proteins and
special collagen that supports your hair roots from within. Your hair will start growing
faster, longer, stronger, thicker and with less hair shedding and improved health. Check
out BellaNutri at bellanutri.com or call toll-free 1-866-711-HAIR (4247). As the dermatologist-developer, I am happy to guide you once you get started. Any hair or skin questions
for me, email drmacmd@gmail.com.

How to Support Healthy
Natural Hair Growth
By Crystal Styles

marketing for Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils.
G
rowing healthy hair starts with understanding
the foundation of a good hair-care regimen.
Here are basic tools you should have in your
healthy-hair arsenal to help maintain natural
tresses.
• A wide-tooth comb with smooth, rounded teeth:
if you’re wearing your hair natural, try not to use
combs with minimal space between each tooth.
Why? Because wavy/curly/coily/kinky hair tends
to wrap around itself, causing knots and tangles.
If the comb does not allow room for your tresses
to glide through without snagging, your hair will
suffer breakage. Wider teeth on your comb will
help save your strands.
• A satin pillowcase or satin scarf/bonnet: Many
naturals do not associate dry, brittle hair with the
types of pillowcases they are sleeping on;, but
there is a significant correlation. Although everyone’s scalp secretes sebum (natural oil from hair
follicles), this oil does not evenly distribute to the
ends of textured strands, causing your hair to be
drier at the ends. Couple this issue with sleeping
on cotton pillowcases that easily zap moisture
from your hair, and you will likely end up with
increased breakage. If your hair is breaking at
the same rate of growth (average .5 inches per
month), then you may think that your hair is not
growing. Be sure to protect your tresses with
satin instead of cotton.
• Flexi-rodding, roller-setting, perm-rodding,
bobby-pinning, twist-outs, braid-outs, Bantu
knots: As old as many of these basic hairstyling
tools and techniques may seem, they are extremely helpful in supporting length retention.
Prepping your hairstyle at night and removing the
need to constantly comb, detangle or use heat
appliances frequently, will significantly increase
the strength of your strands and prevent excessive
breakage.

If you are looking to enhance your natural lashes
consider a great mascara product like Mehron
Brazen Mascara. The product creates gorgeous
lashes in just a few strokes by coating and
extending with a highly pigmented black color. The
lightweight, nylon-infused formula lends incredible
volume to the lashes, while the flexible bristles fan
out each lash for a lush, beautiful finish.

beeswax, jelly-infused with gold flakes, and comes complete with
a real flower in the center. When you apply the lipstick, it reveals a
gorgeous shade of glossy color that caters uniquely to your natural lip
color, highlighting your own special sense of style throughout the day.

I have been using the same brand of soap on my face for years,
and I never had problems. But now my skin breaks out and itches
every time I use it. What could be the problem?
There could be a number of reasons that the soap no longer benefits your
skin, but one of the main factors is that our skin changes every few years.
And with these changes, you may need to adjust your cleansing routine. Bar
soaps, in general, tend to dry out the skin and can irritate it over time. You
may need something a little more moisturizing. Try a hypoallergenic cleanser
and consult with your dermatologist to help determine any other changes

with translucent powder.
Groom your brows, then
line the upper and lower lashes with Maybelline Master
Precise Eye Pencil. Next, add sparkle to the eyelids using
the brand’s Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow
and then apply three coats of Rimmel Scandalous Flex
Mascara. To complete the look, choose Black Radiance

However, after thinking about it

Can you tell us about the
concept and inspiration
behind Every Hue Beauty?
I am a girl who has always
loved to play in makeup. As an
adult, I’ve struggled with finding
products that really match my
skin tone. Which left me—and
so many other women—to mix
a bunch of different products in
order to get it right. Over time,
that can become very costly and
frustrating. I wanted to create a
product that would alleviate the
problem, so I started EveryHue
Beauty. It’s every hue for
everybody.
How did you develop your
line? EveryHue Beauty was
created by me, along with
my three partners. One of my
partners is a makeup artist
and has been for 25 years. We
just all went into the lab and
started creating, mixing and
formulating until we came out
with perfection.
What do you want potential
customers to know about
EveryHue Beauty? I would
love for potential customers to
know that EveryHue Beauty
was and is created by women.
Most beauty lines are created by
men who think they know what
women want—and that is simply
not true. Furthermore, this line
was created by women of color.
I am trying to enhance women’s
beauty from the inside out.

Behind The Scenes:
Tips From The Runway!
By Karen Lee Harris
F
or the Coach spring/summer 2018
show at New York Fashion Week, the
INGLOT-sponsored nail team created a
look that went one step beyond nude, with
an emphasis on polish and nail care.
Behind the scenes, we caught up with
lead nail artist Naomi Yasuda, who walked
us through the steps she used to achieve
this naturally beautiful manicure.

Tips On Tips
During the winter months, my cuticles become extremely dry, even after
applying hand lotion. Is there anything
I can do about this?
Daily cuticle moisturizing is essential to
keeping them healthy. At Tracy Reece’s New
York Fashion Week show, we asked lead nail
artist Geraldine Holford for her top nail-care
tip. “Use oil for your cuticles. Not cream
but an oil, such as olive oil. That will keep
your cuticles in check,” she advised. For the
ultimate at-home manicure experience, soak
nails in warm olive oil for five minutes to help
relieve dry, cracked cuticles.
“I choose a clean, healthy nail look for everybody. When I saw the clothes,
there was a lot of glitter and embellishment, so I wanted to keep the nails very
healthy, natural and minimal,” she shares.
For the look, Naomi chose two key products to highlight the health and raw
beauty of the model’s natural nails. She used INGLOT pH Cuticle Remover, a
product that softens the cuticles and exfoliates loose skin that has accumulated
around the nail beds, and Ridge Filler, a nail treatment formulated with algae
extract to fill in ridged areas and achieve a smooth nail surface.
To begin, Naomi files and buffs the nails with INGLOT Nail File 180/240 and
Nail Buffer.
“Then I put on the pH Cuticle Remover—it makes your cuticles
really soft and nice. After that, I push the
cuticle back a little and finish with the Ridge
Filler, which has a tinted nude color that’s
super natural but looks really manicured, with
a matte finish. It looks like nothing is there, but
it’s clean and healthy-looking,” Naomi says.
The end result: a refined, classic nail
look that is simply beautiful!
All INGLOT products used at the
Coach runway show are sold at more
than 600 locations worldwide. You
can also find them at inglotusa.com
and inglotcosmetics.com.
I’m very conservative in my choice of
nail colors. I often opt for the traditional French manicure, but I’d like
to break out and try some brighter
shades. What colors do you suggest?
Stepping out of your comfort zone can be
tons of fun when choosing vibrant nail colors,
and the Essie Nail Polish collection offers a
wide variety of gorgeous
shades to choose from.
A great place to start is
with the ultimate girly
hue. Get pretty in pink

ail technician Bernadette Gantt for Dapper Cuts Salon rocked this lovely set of
nail art, and she shared her helpful tips for
how to achieve it!
1. Begin by filing down the natural nails.
2. Apply faux tips with strong adhesive and
then file down to desired length.
3. Brush on acrylic; shape, buff and file.
4. Using paints, create elaborate, avant-garde
nail art.
5. Apply rhinestone embellishments and clear
topcoat to finish.

he ‘A World of Curls’ book follows
CreativeSoul’s journey to several
countries including England, Ghana,
South Africa, Cuba, Greece and various
US cities which we visited in order to
capture the beauty of young people
celebrating their natural hair texture.
We created this book with the hope
that it would inspire kids around the
world to not only love themselves
but to develop a sense of curiosity
about the world unknown to them.
Our aim is to challenge the stigma
around natural hair and its general
misconceptions about how hair
‘should’ be styled. Many of the photos
incorporate the local
culture, environment,
and fashion so that
readers can also get
a glimpse of everyday
life in that particular

veryone can appreciate a great hair
look, especially when it is simple
yet sensational! Playing it straight is
every glamour girl’s go-to strategy when
they want to make a serious statement;
a long, flowing look is always fabulous.
Our model’s natural hair is properly
cared for by shampooing and conditioning with moisturizing products. Hairstylist Tywan Williams then weaves in two
colors from the Supreme Hair weaving
line. He uses an 18-inch length of the
Supreme Hair Euro Straight WVG Plus
to create this long look while alternating
the colors as he goes along. He leaves
some of the natural hair free at the
crown for blending. A side part is created, then the hair is flat-ironed bonestraight to create this stellar style.

Great Buys From
Hollywood Beauty
When you work
with a weave, it is
especially important
to maintain the
health of your scalp.
Hollywood Beauty
Peppermint Oil is
specially formulated
to moisturize the
scalp and add
lustrous shine to the
hair. The brand’s
Tea Tree Oil works to
calm itchy scalp and
is formulated with
vitamin E, aloe vera
and a fungus fighter.
A Soft-Press Standout!
Our model decided to change it up. She usually wears her hair in a tight, curly, very beautiful
natural texture; her normal routine consists of washing and conditioning in the shower and
allowing the hair to air-dry. Then mousse or gel is used to maintain the curl pattern. Stylist
Naeemah Johnson gave her this softly pressed look.
1. The hair is cleansed with Creme of Nature shampoo. Our editor recommends the
Pure-Licious Co-Wash.
2. The hair is blow-dried using a comb attachment.
3. A protectant is applied before softly straightening the hair with a flat iron.
4. Once hair is completely straight, a medium-barrel iron is used to create a head full of curls.
5. The curls are beveled under, starting from the nape, and curled forward at the crown and front.
Once the curling is complete, the curls are separated using the fingers.

Soft, whimsical curls make for the
ultimate romantic look. To re-create it:
Shampoo, condition and blow-dry the
hair. We suggest using a blow-dryer
with comb attachment to make the hair
sleek and tangle-free. Next, flat-iron
hair bone-straight. Create a center part
and bevel the hair at the ends to create
soft, chic spirals. Smooth through the
curls with a wide-tooth styling comb to
complete. For an alternate style, sweep
hair in the back into a loose chignon
and pin in place.

his extension hair was given the perfect
name. Winner 100 percent human weaving
hair is available in Super Body or Soft Wavy. This
spectacular product is available in a range of
colors, in 10-, 12-,14-,16- and 18-inch lengths.
Your styling options are many with either of these
beautiful textures. After you achieve your perfect
weave install, take care of your hair with these
simple instructions.
1. Pull a wide-tooth comb gently through the
hair to remove any tangling. When combing,
always start at the bottom and work your
way up, combing small sections of the hair
with downward strokes until all of it has been
combed and detangled. Be careful not to tug
on the hair.
2. Wash hair with running lukewarm water and
a deep-cleansing shampoo. Rinse thoroughly.
3. Apply a moisturizing conditioner to the hair
and rinse thoroughly with running cool water
until all the conditioner is removed.
4. Gently pat hair dry with a towel. Do not rub.
5. Apply a spray-type, oil-free light detangler
to the hair, then carefully comb in the same
manner as in Step 1 to remove any tangles
that may have formed while washing.
6. Allow the hair to air-dry for best results. Do
not sleep while the hair is still wet; this can
result in severe tangling.

Ask The Experts
My hair is always dry and flaky with dandruff—and no matter what
I try, the problem never seems to go away. How can I fix this?
This problem affects many people. Sometimes dry scalp and dandruff can’t be
fixed with store-bought solutions; they may even make the situation worse.
Our editors suggest that you visit a dermatologist to determine the cause,
as you may have a fungus of the scalp. A doctor can prescribe a treatment
to help. Be mindful of how often you use the medicated shampoos, though:
While they help with the scalp dryness, they can also dry out your hair. Apply
the shampoo directly to the scalp only, in addition to following any other
directions from your physician. Be sure to condition thoroughly after cleansing
your hair and scalp.
I just opened my salon and I need to invest in a good flat iron.
What do you suggest?
The Red by Kiss Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron helps create the hottest and
trendiest of hairstyles. The advanced technology aids in even distribution of
heat, preventing damage to your hair from hot spots, and the iron heats up
instantly to help you perfect every stylish look imaginable.
I condition every time I
shampoo, about every two
to three weeks. My hair still
looks lifeless and dull. What
else can I do?
Try a leave-in conditioner that
contains fillers, which are
absorbed by the hair shaft.
These compounds bind with
the hair’s natural keratin
to close up split ends and
firm up hair strands. Unlike
other conditioners, these
are not rinsed out. Leave-in
conditioners are applied after
the shampoo, are left on the
hair and help to protect the hair
between washings.

You recently wrote a bestseller, Against All Odds—
From the Projects to the Penthouse, which told your
amazing story. Can you tell us a little about your
background?
I was born and raised in Sacramento, California,
in a neighborhood called Meadowview, a.k.a.
“Danger Island.” There were drive-by shootings, home invasions, drug addicts and drug
dealers; most of my friends were pregnant by
15, and some of their brothers didn’t make
it to 18. Generational cycles of poverty
existed—and still exist today. Many kids
did not finish high school, much less start/
complete college. I was determined to
change my life, to rewrite my story, to
change the legacy for my four children.
I suffered many setbacks during my life,
which I talk about in the book, but I have
triumphed over those trials.
Tell us a little about Curls.
I founded Curls back in 2002. I was
an Intel Corporation professional and
newly natural mother searching for
options for naturally curly hair. Back
then, the offerings for textured hair
were extremely limited—relaxers
and perms or Jheri curls and grease
products…I didn’t want any of
those. So I worked closely with
leading cosmetics chemists to develop my award-winning brand.
Curls was one of the original
four brands selected to create
Target’s multicultural category
several years ago. The initial
test in 105 Target stores soon
expanded to nationwide distribution, and other retailers took
notice and partnered with the brand.
Now Curls is available in Target, CVS,
Walgreens, Rite Aid, Sally Beauty and
Walmart stores all over the country.
Tell us about the Curls brand of
family products.
Curls caters to the entire natural family.
It’s A Curl is our organic, tear-free,
hypoallergenic line created just for
babies, from newborn to 3 years old.
Curly Q’s is our organic hair-care line
for kids 5 to 12 years old. We also have
a professional line, Curls Pro, for salon
distribution only as well as Curls retail
products for retail and OTC stores.
Our brand philosophy is to formulate
only with certified-organic ingredients and
exotic extracts—without sulfates, silicones,
parabens, artificial oils, fragrances or fillers. What makes your products stand out
from the competition?
Curls delivers cutting-edge, game-changing
formulations with clinically proven ingredients; exceptional
performance; and a variety of products to choose from to meet
the needs of women and girls with natural waves, curls and
kinks. We like to differentiate ourselves from the competition
by going against the norm. If everyone is formulating with
shea butter, argan oil and coconut water, we discover new ingredients that haven’t been used in our
category. Our widely successful Blueberry Bliss
Curl collection is a prime example. Blueberries are
not only a superfood for your body, but they are
also great for your hair. Blueberries are clinically proven to prevent breakage, protect against
damage and encourage hair growth. Our entire
collection has been widely received, and
sales have skyrocketed, both in stores
and online. Target carries the full collection, including our new game changer,
Blissful Lengths Liquid Hair Growth
Vitamin. Unlike other vitamins in
our category, Blissful Lengths Liquid Hair Growth provides more
effective delivery of your vitamins and nutrients. You absorb
up to 98 percent of vitamins in
liquid form, but only 20 percent from a pill…this is also a
proven clinical fact. You’re a true Boss! What’s
on the horizon for Curls?
Thank you! Well, I have a lot in the
pipeline. I’m expanding my reach…
diversifying my portfolio. My newest
brands, Skinny Vitamins (natural metabolism-boosting, appetite-suppressant gummies) and VitaPop Popcorn
(an organic, non-GMO, low-fat popcorn infused
with more than 15 vitamins.
I also signed a deal for my own TV show with
a very popular network, to help other African
American women excel in business. African
American, women-owned businesses are on
the rise, but less than 4 percent of us make it
to the million-dollar mark. The goal of this
series is to help bridge the gap. We are currently recruiting serious businesses that
need serious help.
I am very excited about it! Funny thing
is, I never set out to be on TV, beyond
representing and marketing Curls.
This opportunity just fell into my
lap. I was approached before about
doing a reality show about “beauty
bosses.” The cast and concept fell
flat, so I declined it. The same producers later contacted me about this
opportunity—and since my mission
in life is to give back, I knew this felt
right. I live by the motto “of those
to whom much is given, much is
required.”
