7 Natural Hair Care Products We Love, New from Cantu and TGIN

While shopping in Target with one of our girlfriends, we stopped in the "ethnic hair aisle," as we like to call it. Our friend was looking for a specific pomade made by Carol's Daughter, and during our search we encountered a couple other determined women perusing the shelves for tried and true and new hair care products for locs and twists. As women of color, our hair story is something that unites us, so it was reassuring to have an impromptu meet-up group with other freedom hair sisters.

For our two cents, we added that SheaMoisture and Kinky-Curly have satisfied most of our natural haircare needs for many years, however, we were recently introduced to new products from Cantu Shea Butter and tgin (Thank God It's Natural).  And we love both paraben-free brands. Here's a sampling of Cantu and tgin products that will prevent your natural 'dos from becoming natural don'ts:

1. Tgin Butter Cream Daily Moisturizer ($14.99) hydrates dry strands and helps create well-defined twists and twist-outs.  Available at Target stores nationwide and online, all tgin products are free of parabens, sulfates and animal testing.


2. We love a good deep conditioner and tgin's Honey Miracle Hair Mask ($14.99) restores dry, damaged, and color treated hair, and reduces shedding and breakage. 


3. Packed with green tea, shea butter and argan oil, tgin Green Tea Super Moist Leave In Conditioner ($14.99) replenishes your hair's natural oils, reduces split ends and breakage, and promotes healthy hair growth. 


4. We're told that celebrity hairstylists use Cantu Shea Butter Super Shine Hair Silk ($5.99) to style the coifs of Jada Pinkett Smith, Alicia Keys and Tracy Ellis Ross. And we certainly see why.  The lightweight, non-tacky formula helps prevent breakage, repair split ends and reduce frizz while leaving your hair stronger, healthier and silky smooth.  


5. Untangle and relax your kinks and curls with Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Coil Calm Detangler ($4.97). Made with pure shea butter, this coconut fragrant detangler softens and conditions hair for easy, knot-free styling.


6. Made with pure shea butter, Cantu Moisturizing Rinse Out Conditioner ($4.29) revitalizes dry, brittle hair with deep penetrating oil and emollients. Along with softening and detangling, it adds shine and provides extra protection from split ends and breakage.


7. Cantu for Natural Hair Deep Treatment Masque ($7.99) penetrates deep into the hair shaft to help condition and repair damaged, dry and brittle hair. The intense moisturizing masque and all Cantu products are made with 100 percent pure shea butter and are free of mineral oil, sulfates, parabens, silicone, and other chemicals and harsh ingredients.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t

The Re-Education of NeNe Leakes: The Reality Star Talks About College Hill, What Housewives She's Still Friends With and More

I’ve been a fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta since the beginning.     So I jumped at the chance to chat with original RHOA cast member and breakout star NeNe Leakes.     It’s been a tough couple of years since NeNe parted ways with the show. In 2021 her husband Gregg lost his battle with colon cancer and earlier this year she filed a discrimination lawsuit against her former employer, Bravo. But on the brighter side, the 54-year-old is dating again and starring in the BET limited reality series,   College Hill: Celebrity Edition.    Along with other headline-grabbing reality TV stars including, Big Freedia, Lamar Odom, Stacey Dash and Ray J., NeNe and the members of the cast lived together and attended classes at the historically Black Texas Southern University.     We asked NeNe what it was like to go back to school, what the biggest misconception about her is, which housewives she's still friendly with, and more.   Everything She Wants : What did it feel like being back in
