I didn’t like the short film, “Nappily Ever After.” I didn’t appreciate the title and I didn’t like the idea that it perpetuated the agenda that natural hair is bad. It was just silly to me and way too predictable. I understand it was trying to teach women to like their natural hair, but I did not like how they went about conveying their message. It was one of those movies where I was screaming like I would in ridiculous scary movies when all they had to do was run.
God truly does work in mysterious ways. People have always told me I should model and I’ve always wanted to be one. After speaking to my mother about my desires, she introduced me to her hairstylist, Constance Foster. She creates her own products and was looking for a blogger. We made a connection kind of how Kanye’s mom did with him and No I.D. We had our first trial run on 08/27/16. She washed my hair with her own product and it was super manageable. Afterwards she was able to
Yesterday marked the 4 year Hairiversary of my natural hair journey. I must say, I would not trade it for the world. For those of you who don’t know, I cut all my hair off on 9/12/12. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. Here are a few tips I have learned along the way: 1.) If you take care of your hair it will grow back. I’ll never forget staring at myself in the mirror questioning myself like why did you just cut all your hair off. Luckily
Once again Black people like to show the world just how easy it is for us to publicly humiliate each other. It seems the broader our platform is to criticize each other, the more viciously we attack. I have no idea why we continue to perpetuate nasty stereotypes and talk about each other like dogs. I’m not into sports at all so naturally I’m not interested in the Olympics. But of course, the most relevant news always hits the tabloids. I’m just tired of nappy Black hair overshadowing Black women’s
You’ve seen women with luscious locks full of thick, kinky curly hair and you’re wondering if you should try it. Here are a few things to consider if you want to take that plunge. I was going to send this in an e-mail to my little mentee but figured a lot of women could use the advice. 1) I don’t want to cut all my hair off And guess what, you don’t have to! Once you decide to go natural, you can simply stop getting relaxers, grow your hair to
I stumbled across an interesting article on Facebook titled, “Undecided? 5 Reasons Why Going Natural is a BAD IDEA!” I have been wanting to write a blog on natural hair for a very long time but wasn’t sure how to present it in a neutral manner. I didn’t want to make any woman feel bad or guilty for her hair decisions and simply wanted to empower women to be natural. This article gave me the perfect platform to present my case. Now, I realize people are entitled to their opinions,
Why not?! I truly believe natural black women have taken this stance way too far! When I hear black women with this attitude, I don’t feel like they are preserving their blackness, instead they are making it appear that their hair is better than someone else’s. What makes your hair more untouchable than the next persons? People want to touch you hair because they like it or really just like hair. Me, myself am a hair fanatic! To the freaking core, do you hear me! I love hair, all kinds
