Flo Naturals

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

Happy 4 Years JuFro

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

I will never forget writing a 5-page essay about how inhumane, evil and murderous abortions were. I was a senior in high school and I got an A+ on my essay. Then I grew up and changed my views because I realized life is not always just black and white and some things are not my business. I live in the second state in our nation where our governors just passed one of the most heinous abortion laws. Basically, a woman cannot seek an abortion due to the gender and

I Support Queen Bey

Dear Beyoncé, I stand with you and I hope all Black women do for this very one reason. The support of our own in the midst of being politically scrutinized. And I’m not even a huge Beyoncé fan, I just stand behind her because I should. I’m not a fan of idolizing no human being, but when it got to a point where people told her what she should and could not do and started to protest her shows, I had to write a blog because a facebook status simply

Oh hail ye Beyoncé. I only have one comment to make about her new song Formation because I don’t want the Bey Hive attacking me. There are many other contradictions I could speak on, but I really don’t feel like arguing with people who would eat collard greens from her arm pits. So I’ve read several articles about her reference to Red Lobster. Bey’s fearless followers are upset that Red Lobster took too long to respond to her and did not capitalize on the marketing advantage. I don’t understand how

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

Just My Thoughts

Brides

I plan to start dress shopping in the next month for my wedding and decided to watch, “Say Yes to the Dress.” I found myself just as excited as the Brides were when they found their dress! While watching the show, I noticed the disparities between the women and it just made me sad. Many of the Brides came in with their entourage of family members and friends. Some had budgets ranging from $5,000 to $30,000 just for their dress. Some were planning their ceremony and reception for as many

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,
