Just Because It’s Natural Doesn’t Make It Right. WTH?…..

In Uncategorized on August 29, 2012 at 9:51 am

There is a big difference between healthy, handsome and groomed locks VS.  matted, scary and frankly disgusting clumps of kinks.  Somebody might want to explain that difference to this young man.  But judging from this mugshot, I wouldn’t be so bold…

Seriously though, “dreads” like this give those of us with locs a bad name.  No wonder there are still people who think of locs as dirty and unkempt.   If you never, ever comb or wash your hair, you will end up with “dread” locs.  Just take a stroll through any major city’s skid row and you will see excellent examples of this in the homeless population.  But healthy, clean, manicured locs can be easily cultivated.  There is no excuse for this foolishness!

Until Next time y’all.

Keeping Your Hair Did, Does Not An Inspiration Make….

In Uncategorized on August 3, 2012 at 10:40 pm

What will it take for Black women to move beyond the beauty supply store?  The blogasphere is a’buzz with ignoramuses bashing 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas’s hair.    She is he first African American, the first woman, and the first American to ever win gold in both the individual and team Olympic All Around Gymnastic category.

What damn difference does it make how her hair looks?   She is CHAMPION of THE WORLD in gymnastics. Would she have represented the USA better with a waist length weave?  Perhaps a fresh relaxer would have won her a platinum medal. (Cuz gold just isn’t good enough right?).    It is beyond sad that her hair is even a topic of discussion.  Nevertheless it stands as a depressing reminder how deeply traumatized descendants of the diaspora continue to be.  For many, hair is  a measuring stick for beauty and success.  I even read a couple of tweets that said “her mother should be ashamed”.  Really?  What’s a shame is the fact the women stressing about her hair will most likely make no mark what-so-ever on the world. I am proud of Gabby.   Her hair has nothing to do with anything.

Keeping your hair did, does not an inspiration make….

Stay Sexy,

What The Hell?

In Uncategorized on August 2, 2012 at 2:39 pm

What the hell? This girl must not have one real friend in the whole world. I know this is a natural hair blog, but  what I really want to talk about are her eyebrows.  So, the girl shaved off her natural eyebrows so she could draw them on like this?  THESE  are the eyebrows she always wanted?  Alrighty then…..

Thank you sexy Stephanie K. for submitting this photo. There’s a fabulous Damn [salon] gift on its way to you.  Please forward your WTH submission to dava@thedamnsalon.com.

Stay Sexy!
