But if there's a lesson I've learned as a beauty editor, it's that rules truly are meant to be broken. Yes, there is an equation for the amount of perfume spritzes you should limit yourself to, or the distance in inches you should hold hairspray away from your head to avoid product overload.

Yet when it comes to crunching the numbers for black girls like me! So I'm offering a Teen Vogue -approved cheat sheet for anyone who's ever been classified as having a "deep" skin tone and coarse or curly hair texture, like mine. If you've managed to bypass the overpopulation of cleansing conditioners and hydrating shampoos in your drugstore, consider this your most blatant call to action: Coarse and curly hair needs moisture!

Whether your hair is natural or relad, it's important to infuse your strands with healthy hydration—on a daily basis. If you haven't already, get into the idea of washing your hair with conditioner AKA co-washing. It avoida stripping your hair of its natural oils, while at the same time replenishing it with other healthy sources of hydration, like coconut, avocado, or argan oil.

If you happen to experience some product buildup or notice that your scalp is feeling particularly itchy, try a mild clarifying shampoo that will stimulate your follicles without drying out your strands. Speaking of your scalp, raise your hand if you grew up greasing your scalp. And then raise the other hand if you've recently been told to break that habit ASAP.

The virtual show of hands makes things a little difficult for me here, but if the latter hasn't happened yet, get ready for it. According to top natural hair care pros, applying heavy, petroleum-based products to your scalp can do more harm than good. If you think about it, that makes perfect sense. Apply the rule to your scalp, as heavy creams, pomades, grease, and gel can block your scalp from producing the essential oils it naturally secretes.

That goes for your straightening sessions, too. Apply styling products mid-shaft to the tips of your hair before drying or flat ironing, and let your body produce the moisture it needs to keep your roots quenched. In fact, my best blowouts have been done with little to no product at all, and I promise the shine gave my mom's oil sheen a run for its money. Unfortunately, stopping into any hair salon or blowout bar isn't something we kinky-curly girls can do.

If you've ever fallen victim of the attempt, you know why. It's important to reach out to a prospective hairstylist before your styling sesh to ask a very simple question: "Do you have experience working with my hair texture? Be as descriptive as possible, send a photo or link to your Instagram account see, social media can be good for something! If not, you risk losing a wad of cash all to either re-do it yourself or hide under your winter cap. Black girl or not—there's nothing worse than a bad hair day.

Though beauty brands are improving their range in foundation shades, some are still struggling to cover the gamut on the darker end of the spectrum. If you fall in love with a formula but find yourself between two shades, channel your inner chemist and get ready for a lesson in mixology. If your foundation of choice is a little too dark, you've got it easy. Consider mixing your foundation with a dollop of SPF. On the flip side, if your foundation is a shade too light, you might want to buy a darker shade and blend the two.

Shopping in the luxury aisle? No worries! Feel free to purchase the darker shade from your favorite drugstore brand to avoid putting a strain on your wallet. Unless you want to increase any existing dark marks or scars, do not—I repeat—do not pop those pimples. Don't pick at them, touch them, heck, don't even look at them for too long in the mirror. Because of the high content of melanin in our skin, any further irritation to those pesky blemishes can cause marks that last weeks, months, and yes, even years.

I've tried pulling mine off as moles or beauty marks but that's just not cool. Avoid messing with your breakouts at all costs and if you're still left with dark marks which is a strong possibility , try a spot treatment that promises to brighten those marks with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin C.

Can you relate to any of the above problems? Let me know on Twitter TeenVogue! Sometimes you're just going to have to blend your foundation. Popping a pimple isn't even an option. Keywords Beauty hair Makeup skin care.

Black is beautiful. You don't have to be a Nubian princess or an African rose to be beautiful. All you have to do is trust in your ability to wow other people.

Once or twice a month, when I'm at home on the couch with a glass of wine, I check a dating app. I have a hard time making the first move, but I can't tell you how many messages I get that bring up race right away, or the number of white guys that reach out to me with, "You're really pretty for a black girl. I had a huge crush on a white guy in my science class and — with an amount of courage that I wish I could muster as an adult — I asked him to an upcoming school dance. He turned me down, saying that he didn't like me "that way," and perhaps the deflated look on my face inspired some sort of need on his part to explain further, so he added, "I only date white girls.
