Change is good...

Hey guys!

I've made a few changes to the site in order to make finding information a lot easier for you. Be sure to keep an eye on the Hair Recipes page as I will be adding more to this every week.

First off we have the new ABOUT GHD page

About GHD

GOOD (good) adj.
-In excellent condition; healthy: Good Hair.

Welcome to Good Hair Diaries or GHD as I now like to refer to it. My name is Kavuli and I am passionate about healthy, manageable and happy hair. I decided to start this blog back in September of 2009 after reading an article written in the New York Times about natural ethnic hair. Being an African woman , I believed that I had something valuable to say to my community. It is possible to have the head of hair of your dreams with proper care and information.

GHD cares about one type of hair only...HEALTHY HAIR! I love natural, transitioning, relaxed and locked hair, and my goal is to provide information to women of every hair group without bias. I have been relaxed, weaved, wigged, braided up and cut short. I am currently natural with bra strap length curly hair. Follow me as I review products, interview the natural hair community, figure out a solid hair regimen, research ethnic hair care and ramble about all those things that make GOOD HAIR!

I receive emails from readers everyday with a million and one questions. I don't always have the answer to all the questions, and that makes me hungry for information. This is where YOU come in. I believe that we are apart of this healthy hair care community to not only benefit our own precious strands, but to also inspire, inform and encourage everyone around us. So, empower the community by sharing you enlightenment and gorgeous pictures of your hair.
