My Natural Hair Wish List

By |September 18th, 2014|Curls, Uncategorized|7 Comments

I want!
Since my blog is all about hair, I decided to make an Amazon wish list of some products I have had my eye on for some time. Though my wash and go hair care routine in general is pretty much the same for the most part – just a sulfate-free shampoo, deep conditioner, a leave in conditioner, and an oil like jojoba, tea tree, or coconut oil. Styling follows after those steps. I am still constantly on the look out for better and cleaner hair care products and the brands that will give me better hair days for longer times. These need to be in my bathroom…ASAP

FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions (Natural Hair)

By |August 20th, 2014|Curls|4 Comments

Hello Curly Queens,

I have been asked a number of questions and I figured it would be easiest to just answer all of them on the blog. Some of these are questions that people have asked me via email, instagram, Facebook, and in person.

Q. I only wear weave and braids. I never wear my hair while I am transitioning. Is that okay?

Your Journey Is Not A Race With Others: Be True To Yourselves

By |August 2nd, 2014|Curls|8 Comments

My Rant: 

I feel the need to address the elephant in the room. I have noticed lately that there are some naturals that aren’t being so honest when it comes to interacting with their audiences on social media, and I think that it is crazy. Why lie and become a curly imposter? Why not just keep it real? The choice to be natural is supposed to your own journey and for your own person reasons, not just because everyone else is doing it. I have watched these people on these social networks sites blatantly lie about the prepping/styling method of their hair whether it was a twist out, bantu knot out, wash & go, etc.  We can tell that your twist out is not a wash & go boo.  No one will judge or think any less of you for telling the truth. In fact, with honesty, you may be helping out someone else who has a very similar hair texture/pattern as yours. I look at it as a win-win situation. Lying just creates drama, confusion, and questions.

“I’m Not Paying That Much Money For Those Products”

By |July 10th, 2014|Curls|1 Comment

I hear this from the newbies all the time.  That and…”It costs too much money to be natural.”

It doesn’t have to. There are still good products out there for the naturals on a budget, teenagers who have allowances, or just a frugal individuals in general. When I started paying attention to the type of products that I was using in my natural hair, I was still in college so you know how that is(Ramen Noodles & chump change). Here are a list a good ol’ budget-friendly products, everything under $10. Most of this stuff (If not all) is at the drugstore or Target.

Natural Hair Product Capitalism

By |March 28th, 2014|Personal, Rant|10 Comments

I’m trying not to make this a rant so forgive me if it slowly turns into one.

Have you all noticed that all these hair companies are now trying to cash in and cater to the natural hair community?  I feel a certain type of way about it. Where were you guys at when I really needed you? I needed products back in like 2003. I use to stroll up and down the hair aisle for hours reading labels and hunting for products. I used to settle on mousses, gels, curl activators, oh and Hawaiian silky. (Who used to use Hawaiian Silky?) Some examples of major hair companies that have started marketing to the naturals are Dr. Miracles, Dark & Lovely, Soft sheen-Carson, Motions, QP Elasta, and even Pro-style. I have not purchased any of those brands for natural hair care because I feel like they are just doing it for the money. Do they genuinely care about the well being of your curls?  Was there any real care or effort in creating these products? What if they are the same products for the relaxed ladies but just repackaged and put on the shelf for a higher price?

Help! I don’t understand my child’s hair.

By |March 16th, 2014|Tips|3 Comments

Sorry about the wait. I really do post more often than this but it seems like the universe didn’t want me to write a blog post. I started writing this post last week but WordPress deleted my finished post when I tried to save it. I was livid.

This post was inspired by two people. Within the past two weeks, I have had a few random people walk up to me and ask questions about my hair.
