WTH …..

In Uncategorized on July 25, 2012 at 7:51 pm

I have to be honest. There is a part of me that actually likes this “do”.  You know I simply die for anything animal print, and hot pink is way up there on my lust list as well.  But Hot Pink and Leopard hair… Together…. in one hair style…What The Hell?

Whats the Right Product for Your Natural Hair Texture?

In Uncategorized on July 10, 2012 at 2:25 pm

I’ve always had an obsession with curly hair, while craving versatility. So how would I mesh the two and what products would I use?

In the spring of 2005, I decided to release myself from being a slave to the perm. Yes! the chains were broken; no more creamy crack. Finally, the emancipation of joining curly hair and versatility as one had begun. However, the decision to bring these two together would require some reconstruction. This journey started with some investigative research on my hair and finding the right products for my hair texture.

Here’s what I found as my weapons of natural reinforcement and ladies please feel free to use these tidbits along your transitioning trail or even to maintain your current natural state.

1.) Ingredients in the products used have to have essential oils as the first five.
2.) Water must be the main ingredient.
3.) Both shampoos and conditioners have to be sulfate free.
4.) Purchase hair products for dry hair if this is an issue you have struggled with but more than likely most transitioners will need these type of products

*In addition, individuals with tight coils/kinks similar to my texture should look for these types of products because they provide the moisture that this texture lacks. Moisture doesn’t travel down the hair strands as fast because of the flat shape in diameter associated with tightly coiled/kinky hair.

Just as soon as I had declared war on chemicals I began to realize that race and the hair business can be a tricky situation.

Hold up let me think about that!….. I was released from being a slave to the perm; experienced emancipation, went through reconstruction and now I’m told I have to go down a certain aisle because of my race! The emphasis should be on the texture of hair when companies are targeting people not race. I’ve seen individuals that identified themselves as descendants of Africans with straight hair (not chemically relaxed) and Caucasians with tight curls to wavy hair.

With that said be cautious when walking down the product hall of fame. Focus on the texture and the ingredients in the product; don’t look at the aisle and base your decision on who the companies have decided to position their products to. It’s important to know your texture and you will select the right product; therefore companies will not influence your decision based on race.

Now it’s your time to revolutionize your hair!

A Lesson In Matching. Guest blogger “The Lone Natural”.

In Uncategorized on July 5, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Ok…I know the title may seem as though the color wheel is going to appear and hues of jewel tones and neutrals are going to flash before your eyes. So left field!

Ever since I was a little girl, I had this crazy obsession with matching my clothes! Every now and then, when my dad did my hair withan array of different styles, my mom would grab a dress and I’d declare, at 6yrs old mind you, “It doesn’t match!”  I’m not talking your typical, blues with khaki or blacks with white. No I’m talking about matching your hair…with your flare!

Many women find that when they rid themselves of chemical relaxers and go natural, there aren’t many options for different social occasions. In addition many find that when one goes natural they have to over compensate on style. Here are my thoughts in motion.

Just big chopped and want to flip the script on that “wear big earrings” stereotype?!  Instead, try and offset it with something that shows your boldness! A dress and bold print cami or even a tantalizingly tailored pant suit will show that Natural Hair Holds No Bars!

Have a fro that goes…and goes…and want to vamp it up? Why not try a Shingai Showina inspired do! Her fab twist on the French roll will show you’re outside of the box and funkitfy your style! Throw in skinny jeans, a boyfriend button up and a bold necklace and you’ve got yourself  a cool and sleek weekend look!

Come on cuties! The possiblities are endless! Show your fab flare and seize the day!
