One of the most frustrating things when moving to a new city as a woman is finding a new place to call your salon. When you’re black naturalista it’s even more complicated because you’re not sure who’s really skilled and educated in caring for natural hair. The black hair salon search is sooooo exhausting!

Well I’ve been here in the DC Metro Area for the past five and have been through plenty of hairstyles and phases.

I’m officially over tapered haircuts on natural hair! Let me back up and say, I’m over it on ME. Now that my tapered hair divas are no longer offended, let me proceed. I got my first natural hair cut back in 2013, and the stylist gave me the tapered cut. If you missed out on it, check out my YouTube video of it here. I was initially not too thrilled about the style,

It took a long time for me to get this final review out and I’m not sure why. 🙂

I have been using the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil line since I first reviewed it in August 2014. After that post, I decided to purchase the remaining items in the line to see if they lived up to my expectations. SPOILER ALERT: Not really. They were good but I didn’t feel they were staples.

I heard this term, “Straight Natural” being thrown around while listening to my favorite podcast by Curlbox’s founder Myleik Teele.

Meh, I don’t know. I ventured out this past weekend and flat ironed my hair on my own after years so many years. To be clear, I had my hair flat ironed professionally in April, which lasted for a month, but have not flat ironed my hair in years on my own.

For the past month and some change, I have been wearing my hair straight.  It has been very … interesting. It’s been two years since I attempted to straighten my hair and I lost my touch. Back in the day day, I used to press my own hair. Lately I had to learn how to straighten my hair again because I just had no clue. Well, while on vacation I had my hair straighten for the first time.

Here’s the actual demo of my wash and go routines that I talked so much about in my previous post.
As you can see in this video the techniques are very simple. I don’t like to complicate things especially when I’m a busy woman. Hope you enjoy and I hope this is helpful.

P.S.
The music being played in this demo is by this DOPE D.C. producer RODDYROD. You can find him on Soundcloud or his BandCamp Page.

I’ve been playing around with Wash N Go’s All Summer Long. Here’s a recap of my coils in LIVING COLOR! LOL! Had so much fun and got so many compliments on really good wash and go days. Every wash and go ain’t perfect but you learn to appreciate the imperfection. My wash and go routines are pretty simple. Sometimes I feel like coiling my hair and sometimes I don’t. I go with the flow really.

I adore this product line. Let’s start there. This new line from Shea Moisture is everything I could have dreamed of all mixed in beautiful containers. Oh the moisture! What product line? Well if you can’t tell by the title of this post, the new line is called Jamaican Black Castor Oil by Shea Moisture. It’s purpose is to “Strengthen, Grow & Restore”. For a coily head girl with color treated hair this is everything and more.

For “Throwback Thursday” I figured I share with you my first post I wrote for 4chairchick.com. In this particular opinion piece, I explain how the texture discrimination is something that was created within its own community. Outsiders and companies are not to blame for this discrimination. As always, we need to look within to find out who’s at fault.

Lately, there’s been quite a bit of chatter about Joulezy’s latest video “Texture Discrimination.” Here at the 4C Hair Chick Network,

In continuation with my discussion on the psychology of having 4C Hair, yes the psychology, and how we honestly feel about it let’s discuss the big chop. To be honest, since we’re speaking honestly, I wish I had a blog to read when I cut my permed hair off and was faced with my natural hair. Not knowing how to style it, having hardly any Youtube videos to watch, and no one around me had any advice outside of getting my hair straighten was frustrating.
